By Steven Partin –

Saturday, June 18 at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex was a night to remember the 1950′s. Woodland Altars 1950′s Throwback Night honored all those who remember the 50′s by admitting anyone born in or before the 1950′s for free. Drivers in all classes were itching to get back onto the track before the upcoming off weekend to get practice for the next event which hosts the largest Crowd of the year, the Firestorm on Sunday, July 3. On Saturday, Modifieds and Legend Cars headlined a wild night of racing action which had twists and turns all night long.

The Woodland Altars Modifieds hit the track with a 20-lap Feature event to begin the action. The $100 Pay+ Program Bonus was on the line for Dean Boyd this week. Should Dean win, he would receive the bonus and would be doubled the next week, however if someone could beat Boyd, they would get his $100 bonus.

The Green Flag flew with Rusty Hawes and Dean Boyd in a tight battle for the lead. Boyd led the caution-ridden opening laps as back markers had issues early. Finally, Hawes noticed a chance to capitalize and take the lead below Boyd, and took his number 88 car below Boyd’s number 11B. The two cars made contact and Boyd went spinning. The contact put Hawes on rebound mode as he had to recover from the tail of the field. With that, Jeffery Surber and Dave Warnock saw their chances next on the restart. With a large run, Warnock and his number 44 machine powered forward, continued to work the bottom line and finally was able to surpass Boyd and bring Tim Rayburn’s Number 31 along with him. Warnock would hold on to win the feature event and the $100 Bonus, bringing Rayburn, Boyd, Eric Sheppard and Hawes behind him to round out the top five.

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series stormed out to round out the night of regular racing. After an invert of three put Heat number one winner Tom Partin back into the third starting spot and Steven Partin and John Gutman would lead the field to the green. At the drop of the flag, Tom Partin and Gutman would work their way up to the front as the hornet’s nest of drivers followed behind. Tom Partin held a less than dominant lead as top runners like Gutman, Steven Partin, Shaun Scott and Tommy Stout, Sr. battled for their shot at the top spot.

Steven Partin worked his way around Gutman’s Speedway Legends, Ohio Valley Roofers Number 17 car for the second spot and set to chase down his father Tom. Tom would hold on to the lead throughout restarts and hard charges by Steven to the bottom of the track. Tom would pick up the victory for the first time in 2016. Tom Partin became the fourth different winner in five points races held in 2016. Following Partin across the line were Steven Partin, Gutman, Scott and Stout Sr.

Brushcreek Motorsports Complex is off this coming weekend but the Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series will be at the Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth on Saturday, June 25.

The next event on the schedule for BMC is the wildly popular Fourth of July tradition, the 16th Annual Firestorm.
