By Steven Partin –

It was the most anticipated event of the year at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex, the Dueling Fireworks show known as the Firestorm returned for the 16th Year and, as always, wowed fans of all ages who were in attendance for the huge event. Rains plagued the evening but the fans endured the misty weather to witness racing action and a huge fireworks extravaganza.
For the racing program, the Sport Mods hit the track first for their feature event of the night. At the drop of the flag, Danny Hamilton wheeled his number 99 to the top spot, trying early for his first points win at BMC in 2016. Hamilton held on for the early portion of the event until engine trouble caused him to exit the speedway, turning the lead over to Dustin Pennington and his number 11 car. Pennington led for a short period until problems caused him to fall back as well. The beneficiary of the troubles of the early leaders would be Jamey Adams who had a rear bumper full of Mitchell Fields. Adams was able to hold off all the charges from behind to take his first Sport Mod win at BMC. Following Adams were  Fields, B.J. Branham, Robert Lunsford and Billy Bowles to finish off the top five..

The 25-lap Modified Feature event rolled onto the track next. Rusty Hawes, Dave Warnock and Jeremy Rayburn were the early front runners in this lengthened race. Rayburn’s car was very fast early until mechanical issues caused him to have to exit the track. This left the race up to Warnock and Hawes. Hawes’ number 88 machine was on rail through the halfway portion of the event but as the laps closed down, Warnock began to close the gap.
Both drivers were chasing for a bonus, Warnock wanted to win his own bonus and keep the Pay+ Program streak alive while Hawes wanted the $200 Bonus as well. With laps winding down, Hawes’ car began to fade while Warnock stayed strong. The lap car of Taylor Allison would be the decider as Warnock used the number 5 car for a pick and drove around R Hawes late in the going. Following Warnock across the finish line were Hawes, Dustin Sword, Tyler Allison and Taylor Allison to round out the top five. With his win, Warnock raised the Pay+ Program Modified Bonus to $300 Plus the regular pay at the next event.
The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series followed the Modified Division to close out the nights racing action. The 20-lap feature would prove to be enjoyable as at the drop of the green, cars were nearly five wide in turns one and two. The race came to life when Shaun Scott, John Gutman and Steven Partin went three-wide in the first turn. Partin would be able to pull ahead in the beginning but the pack of cars behind which also included Cole DeMint and Steve Duderstadt all went to work on Partin’s number 4 car. Several cautions slowed the event, allowing drivers behind Partin’s lead to attempt restart magic but to no avail, they couldn’t pry the top spot away. It looked as if Partin would win easily in the closing laps but Shaun Scott’s number 88 car was coming on strong on the high line. Off the final turn, Partin barely held on to win his second race of 2016, and following him across the line were Scott, DeMint, Duderstadt, and Josh Francis.
