Releases Record 2015 Schedule of Events
The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series is proud to announce the 2015 tour
schedule. The tour that was formed from nothing just four years ago
will now feature a record 22 races on 17 different race tracks in 4
states. There are NO co-sanctions and NO "home" track. This 2015
tour will test the drivers and teams with 1/4 mile tracks to 5/8
mile monsters. The number one goal of the schedule was to
strategically pair doubleheader weekends to save the teams travel
expenses. The heart of the schedule features bi-weekly
doubleheaders with weekends off between them.
Last season the
tour completed 14 of the 17 scheduled events with 3 rainouts. The
average car count was 36 cars per event with 12 different main event
winners. Seventeen drivers followed the tour chasing points one
year ago, and 158 different drivers ran at least one event.
Wapakoneta, Ohio driver Mike "The Magic Man" Miller became the third
champion in as many years narrowly edging inaugural series champion
"the Hustlin Hoosier" Dustin Smith of Russiaville, Indiana.
The 2015 season will kick-off on Saturday,
May 9th at the historic Fremont Speedway. A week later the tour
will return to the most storied venue on the schedule when they
attack Jason and Kristin Flory's Wayne County Speedway on May
16th. After 2 stand alone Saturday shows, the bi-weekly
doubleheaders begin. Saturday, May 23rd finds the tour in the
keystone state at Mercer Raceway Park. BOSS officials are working
on the only unfilled date of Sunday, May 24th. Current negotiations
with 2 different venues have officials hopeful that this will become
of doubleheader weekend.
In one of the most highly anticipated
moves in series history, a visit to Limaland Motorsports Park will
kick off the June 5-6 weekend while Lawrenceburg Speedway just
across the border in Indiana will make up night #2. Following an
off weekend, the series will return to action and make more history
June 19-20 with their first visit to a pair of 1/4 mile bullrings.
Friday night will find the tour at the Legendary Hilltop Speedway in
Marietta, Ohio for what promises to be the biggest event since the
track was reopened just 3 years ago. The Saturday portion of the
weekend will see the historic first ever BOSS race in the
mountaineer state as Tyler County Speedway in Middlebourne, West
Virginia will hold the first true wingless sprint car race in that
state since July 4th, 1969 when International Raceway Park in Ona,
West Virginia held a USAC sanctioned event.
The holiday weekend of July 3rd and 4th
will see the tour at the traditional stops of Lernerville Speedway
and the Pittsburgh PA Motor Speedway. A week later it's on to
Waynesfield Raceway Park for the annual Dick Spencer Memorial event
July 11th which will mark the halfway point on the tour. Following
a 2 week mid season break, the tour will return to its birthplace on
Friday, July 31st at Atomic Speedway. The first ever BOSS event was
held in July of 2011 at the track that was then known as K-C
Raceway. The return to the birthplace will kick off the only 3 day
race weekend as the traveling gypsies will travel on to Lawrenceburg
Speedway on Saturday and the weekend will conclude at Millstream
Speedway in Findlay, Ohio on Sunday, August 2nd. One week later, on
Saturday, August 8th the tour will make its second visit of the
season to Wayne County Speedway.
The much anticipated "Mike Hensel
Memorial" at Fremont Speedway has been moved to Saturday, August
15th and will feature a 33 lap - $3300 to win main event in honor of
Hensel. The series will then have a 2 weekend break before the
grueling home stretch of races. The Labor Day weekend will find the
series at two new venues. Moler Raceway Park will play host on
Friday, September 4th while Sunday September 6th will find them
running the largest auto racing event in the 26 year history of the
35 Raceway Park near Frankfort, Ohio. With school and football
kicking into high gear, this will be the final doubleheader weekend
of the season.
The series will then finish off with four
stand alone Saturday events over a five week period. A return of
the highly successful event at Montpelier Motor Speedway will be on
Saturday September 12th and a week later, the Waynesfield Raceway
Park will host its second event on the year. Drivers and teams will
then get a weekend off before the final two big events on Saturday,
October 3rd at Fremont Speedway and the finale where BOSS will again
put on THE SHOW at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio! The fourth
champion of the tour will be crowned once again on the stage at the
Big E for the event that has averaged 54 cars.

2015 BOSS Schedule Taking
With the new year now upon us, the 2015
schedule release is just days away. While much of the buckeye state
is in turmoil as the new season approaches, fans can rest assured
that the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series will be bringing an action
packed, full field of professional sprint cars to each and every
venue. No less than six new tracks will have dates added to the
tour that already has nineteen dates signed with 4 more tracks and
dates still in negotiations. Series officials will release the full
schedule on Thursday, January 15th.
Last season, fourteen of the scheduled
sixteen events were completed with twelve different drivers scoring
victories. The tour averaged 36 cars per show with a high of 53
race cars on two separate occasions (Waynesfield and Eldora).
One-hundred and fifty-eight different drivers competed in the 14
events completed a year ago and those drivers represented hometowns
from 17 different states and Canada.
Mike Miller of Wapakoneta, Ohio became the
third champion in tour history narrowly edging the inaugural series
champion Dustin Smith of Russiaville, Indiana. Both drivers earned
one feature victory during the season. Evans City, Pennsylvania
driver Brandon Spithaler took over the top spot on the all time
feature win list after scoring two wins on the tour.
Watch for drivers bios to be added
individually over the next few months as drivers sign on to follow
