New event excites Brushcreek fans

(Peebles, OH) A new event hit the track on Aug. 15 at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex. The first ever Team Enduro took place following all the regular racing action. Six teams took to the first time event right after a wild feature event with several twists and turns. Dan Shirey and Austin Tolle brought their team “Shirey Squared” to victory lane at the end of the 20 Lap event. Tolle was the knocker and his truck was virtually shot but it held on long enough to help his teammate pick up the win. Fans went crazy as the two champions celebrated winning the first ever Team Enduro together.

The Crazy Compacts started off the regular program and Stacy Evans wasted no time getting to the front. After adjusting his car before the feature event, he made winning look easy. Evans was followed by Kevin Howell, Keith Anderson, Tyler Vice and Ray Fisher who rounded out the top five.

The Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods rolled out with Danny Fout and Mitchell Fields leading them to green. Fields jumped out early but had competition the entire race long. Eric Shepherd’s 1S car was able to close the gap but passing Fields was another story. Shepherd worked high and low attempting to get by. As the laps wound down, Brennan Bobst brought his number 24B car into the mix. Bobst was running both Fields and Shepherd down, however he could only get by Shepherd in time. Fields won the event followed by Bobst, Shepherd, Danny Fout and Austin McGlone to finish up the top five.

The Modified division hit the dirt next. Rusty Hawes picked up his first career win just a few weeks ago and showed again that he had his number 88 car figured out. Second place Spensor Watson had nothing for Hawes in the feature event. Watson finished second with Darren Dryden, Phill Babst, and Pete Brunton closing out the top five.

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series entered Round 18 of the 2015 season at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex. Derek Minshew was in the car originally driven by Jim Bob O’Cull. Minshew proved early that he would be a force to be reckoned with and never let up all night long. Charges by John Gutman never slowed the blue and yellow 19 car on its way to victory lane. After a disqualification in the top five, the official results were Minshew, Cole DeMint, Shaun Scott, Steve Duderstadt and Scott McMahan.

The Series returns to BMC on August 22 but prepares for their big showcase at the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Hillbilly 100 at I-77 Raceway Park on Sunday Sept. 6.

Brushcreek Motorsports Complex will be back in action this Saturday Aug. 22 with a Regular Racing Program. Fans will see Modifieds, Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods, Southern Ohio Lighting Mini-Sprints, Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Cars and Crazy Compacts.

General Admission is just $12 for adults and kids 12 and under are free. Want to see the cars up close? A Pit Pass is just $25 for all ages.

Racing action is set to get started at 7 p.m. Visit www.brushcreekmotorsports.com for more info.
