Boggs snags Buckeye Dirt Week win

Jackie Boggs celebrates with his family and crew in Victory Lane on June 19 at Brushcreek Motorsports.

(Peebles, OH) The Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by Octane Race Products made its stop at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex on Friday, June 19. The series that was supposed to be a week long was cursed with rain the entire week. Going into BMC, which was scheduled to be the 6th of 7 races, only one other race had been completely finished. Late Model drivers had $3,000 on the line while Modified drivers raced for $1,000 to win.

Rains struck the grounds around 2 p.m. and officials knew they had their work cut out for them but fans united on Social Media and with one loud voice proclaimed “We want to race!” and so the officials made it happen. The track was fast all night long with two track records being set. Duane Chamberlain broke the old Late Model track record set by Josh McGuire by busting down a lap time of 13.219 seconds. Duane Chamberlain would also go on to win the Fast Car Dash and start on the pole of the 30 Lap Feature event. Winchester’s Nick Latham and Wheelersburg’s Rod Conley split heat race wins as well.

Finally it was time for the feature and it turned out to be a knock down drag out between Duane Chamberlain and Brushcreek Veteran Jackie Boggs. Chamberlain jumped out early but Boggs was hot on his heels. Boggs threw a series of slide jobs at Chamberlain but the number 20c car was able to cross back over and keep the lead. Around the midpoint of the race the Boggs 4B car made his final pass and began to walk away. Boggs picked up yet another Major Event Brushcreek trophy. In his interview Boggs said “You have to be insane to race that hard,” making a reference to Chamberlain’s nickname “Insane Duane.” Chamberlain came home second with Nick Latham all over him finishing third. Latham, the event’s hometown boy, was on the move in his number 31 car but just seemed to run out of time.

The Modified division was no different in the Central Star Drilling 20 presented by OK Auto Parts and Cardno ATC. Boggs was wheeling a Modified and continued his success by taking the $1,000 to win check. Brian Skaggs, Taylor Cook, Davey Warnock and Jimmy Lennex rounded out the top five.

The night’s other winners included Keith Anderson in the Crazy Compacts, Danny Hamilton in the Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods and Jerren Perdue in the Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series. The OVRLCS heads to Portsmouth Raceway Park this Saturday. June 27.

The Brushcreek Motorsports Complex will be off this weekend but back on for the biggest event of the year on Friday, July 3. Its the Fourth of July tradition that you wont want to miss. The Dueling Fireworks will return for a huge show and tailgating and fun will be encouraged. Spend the day with us on July 3.
