Kinser gets Sprint Car victory at Brushcreek

(Peebles, OH) The weather finally cooperated for a sunny and warm race day this past Saturday night, July 11. The OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars returned to the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex for the second time this season. The sprinters were in search for the $2,500 top prize. Twenty four Sprint Cars were in the pit area to try their hand on the 3/10 mile Peebles track. Fans were ready to see who would take home the win, little did they know, they were in for a treat.

Three Sprint Car heat races tore up the track first, leaving Ryan Broughton, Nathan Skaggs and Tom Busch victorious. With more than a full field of Sprint Cars there was forced to be a B-Main which eliminated some of the competitors from the feature event. R.J. Perkins picked up the B-Main win bringing Nate Reeser and Adam Cruea with him to the Feature event.

The $2,500 to win feature event was 30 laps in length and had plenty of action to say the least. Early in the event West Union’s Trey Gustin found himself upside down in his Winchester Ag number 80 car. He walked away unharmed but was not happy with the way he had to end his night. Once the green flag came back out it looked as if Nathan Skaggs would pull away with the win until Ryan Broughton found some speed and came on strong.

Broughton’s number 22 RB Designs machine caught and passed Skaggs at the midpoint in the event. Broughton held on to the lead for a few laps, then another hard change came from Todd Kane and Kody Kinser. Kinser wound up with the speed and picked up his first win at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex. Rounding out the Sprint Car top five were Ryan Meyers, Todd Kane, Jim Nier and Mark Imler.

The OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars return to BMC on September 25 and 26 for the Second Annual Showdown at the Creek. Friday Sept. 25 will pay $2,000 to win and Saturday Sept. 26 will pay $2,500 to win.

Along with the 410 Sprint Cars, all the regular divisions were also in action. The Crazy Compacts welcomed Clyde Saunders back into victory lane. Saunders’ first season in a race car has been nothing but successful. The Mini-Sprints showcased a car count of eight showing steady growth in the new Division, Chris Smalley won over Johnny Starr, Bradley Strunk, Kyle Kruger and Lawrence Fasse.

In the Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods it was Brennan Bobst of Beaver, OH picking up his First career win. Bobst was met in Victory Lane with family and friends as they celebrated the first of many wins. Brennan won over Rick Neace, William Baldridge, Derek Spencer and Danny Fout.

In the Modified division the invert fell into Adam Strickers favor putting him Outside Pole in the starting lineup. Stricker jumped out early and never looked back. Stricker however did have a rear view mirror full of Eric Berry’s number 75 as he attempted to chase down the leader. Stricker held on to win over Berry, Rusty Hawes, Darren Dryden and J.T. Toller. Sticker was thrilled in victory lane after having a rough start to the racing season, saying “it was a relief to pick up a win.”

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car series was the final group on track. Their 15-lap feature was cut short after a a nasty accident involving Steve Duderstadt and Rusty DeMint rolling over. All drivers were ok. Tom Partin officially picked up the win over Josh Francis, Cole DeMint, Derek Minshew and Scott McMahan.

Brushcreek Motorsports Complex is off this coming weekend for the Adams County Fair. We will be back in action on Saturday July 25 for “Meet the Drivers Night.”
