Some close racing on Fan Appreciation Night

Aaron Pendleton wins his First race at Brushcreek in 2015 in the Modified Division.

A day threatened by rain turned into a picture perfect evening for racing action on June 13. It was Fan Appreciation Night at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex and all the drivers were looking to show what they had for all the fans. Modified drivers were also tuning for Friday’s Central Star Drilling 25 which will pay $1,000 to win. As the sun set last Saturday, the drivers were ready to tear up the track.

Crazy Compacts were on the track first. The invert put heat race winner Keith Anderson on the tail of the Feature Lineup. Although he had to fight his way from the back he wasted no time as he made his moves early. Anderson drove straight into victory lane which he became very familiar with in 2014. Anderson’s win made it three winners in three weeks for the Crazy Compacts. Following Anderson to the finish were Kevin Howell, Devin Puckett, Kelly Young and Clyde Saunders.

Chris Smalley picked up another Southern Ohio Lightning Mini Sprint victory with Matt Mugg winning the SOLMS Dark Horse Dash.

The Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods proved to be an entertaining one as well. Danny Hamilton in his number 99 car jumped out early but was soon trailed closely by Brad McGlone. On a late race restart, McGlone made his move. He threw the car below Hamilton and squeezed his way into the lead and went on to win the feature event. In Victory Lane, McGlone said, “It was an accomplishment in itself just to beat a tough competitor like Hamilton.” Following McGlone and Hamilton were Brennan Bobst, Rick Neace and Trent Welage to round out the top five.

The Modifieds showed themselves the track next. Jackson, OH driver Aaron Pendleton and Mike Brust had battled all night long and it came down to the feature event. Pendleton jumped out early but Brust was all over him. A couple of caution flags allowed for Brust to try the bottom side to make a pass. Brust just couldn’t get it done and Pendleton wound up in Victory Lane. Following Pendleton were Brust, Chris Shelton, Glenn East and Weston Crosby.

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car series was the final group to hit the track. Rob Puckett and Jerren Perdue led the field to green. Perdue ran off early and never looked back and picked up his first OVRLCS win of 2015. Rounding out the top five were Josh Francis, Tom Partin, Steven Partin and Cole DeMint.

Brushcreek Motorsports Complex is back in action this Friday hosting the second to last night of the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by Octane Race Products. Super Late Models will be in the house racing for $3,000 to win and Modifieds will be racing in the Central Star Drilling 25 presented by Cardno ATC and OK Auto Parts for $1,000.

Don’t miss the only Late Model show in 2015 as some of the best drivers in the area will be in the house. For more info on the Dirt Week visit www.buckeyelatemodeldirtweek.com. For info on the track, visit www.brushcreekmotorsports.com.
