Brushcreek crowns 2015 racing champions

(Peebles, OH) One week after its originally scheduled date, the H&S Excavating Night of Champions at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex proved to be the exciting action packed show everyone hoped it would be. Four Teams in each class came into the night with an equal opportunity to win the 2015 Track Championship for their respective clasess. All a driver had to do was beat the other three in the running for the championship and he was the champion. As the night’s action rolled on, the pressure continued to mount for all teams in contention.

Here is how the racing action broke down.

In the Crazy Compacts Division, Kevin Howell, Clyde Saunders, Ray Fisher and Keith Anderson were in the running for the championship. Howell and Anderson showed early that they would be the ones contending for the title. As the laps wound down, contact between the two would set Howell behind the pace allowing Anderson to claim the 2015 Crazy Compact Championship. As they crossed the line, Fisher ended up second in points and Howell third. Saunders failed to arrive which put him fourth in the standings.

The Sport Mod division was very exciting as Danny Fout, Brennan Bobst, Ricky Neace and Jimmy Spillman were in the battle for the title. As the race wore on, Bobst looked as if he would be the champion but contact while battling for the lead sent him out of the race. Then it was up to Brennan’s car owner Ricky Neace and Jimmy Spillman to duke it out for the title. Even though Chris Shelton crossed the line to win, Neace was able to pull out the championsip. Neace, Spillman, Bobst, and Fout was the final order of the top four contenders.

The Modified division saw a dominating performance by Dave Jamison to take the win and the championship. Glenn East, Clark Vanhouten and the the absent Jason Bilyeu rounded out the top four in the championship standings.

The Legend Cars had a tight battle all year for their top four spots. Cole DeMint squeezed into the top four late in the going along with Josh Francis, John Gutman and Steve Duderstadt. The whole race long the top four battled back and forth. DeMint held his own out front behind race leader Shaun Scott, but that was enough to win the championship. DeMint picked up his first championship in the same season he picked up his first win. Gutman, Francis, and Duderstadt rounded out the top four in the standings.

The Brushcreek Motorsports Complex has one more event to close out the season, coming up on Sunday, Nov. 1. The racing program will include Modifieds, Sport Mods, Mini-Sprints, Legend Cars and Crazy Compacts plus the Sept. 25 Sprint Car Makeup show and a Team Enduro.

Gates will open at noon with the Drivers Meeting at 1:30 p.m. and Hot Laps at 2 p.m..
