(Peebles, OH) In June of 2001, Tom Partin and Brushcreek Motorsports, LLC opened what was once just a vision. The group of partners lead by the energetic Partin set out two years before to bring a first class racing venue to Peebles, OH. Finally, the first race at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex was run before a packed house. Now, 15 years later, racing is set to once again get started this spring as race season returns with the 15th Season Opener on Saturday May 2nd!
May 2nd is scheduled to be a night full of fun and action for all ages. Not only is there a full night of racing action featuring Modifieds, Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods, Southern Ohio Lighting Mini-Sprints, Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Cars and Crazy Compacts but there is a 100 Lap Enduro plus a Fireworks show planned to kick off the year! What better way to kick off the 2015 season than with racing and some fireworks?
Saturday May 2nd will be the first race going toward the new Championship format. Points will be kept at each event as normal however things will be a bit different on the final night of the year. On October 3rd, the top four drivers in each classes championship standings will each have an equal chance to win the title. The best finisher in the feature out of the top four will win the championship crown! No Heat Race points, no feature points, just the best out of the four drivers decides the champion for the year.
Also planned for 2015 are several 410 Winged Sprint Car events. The first of the 4 Nights of Sprint Car action scheduled will take place one week after the season opener, Saturday May 9th as the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association (OVSCA) rolls into town! The methanol injected winged warriors return to BMC on Saturday July 11th and then are back on September 25th-26th for the 2nd Annual Showdown at the Creek! If you’re a Sprint Car fan you can’t miss these races.
A new mini-series will also be visiting the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in its inaugural season. The newly founded Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week will find its way to the 3/10 mile track on Friday June 19th! In the only visit to the track this season for the Late Models, drivers will be fighting for the $3,000 top prize. Joining the Late Models in the spotlight on June 19th will be the Modifieds as they race the Central Star Drilling 25. The best Modified drivers around will be racing for $1,000 to win! This historic event is a must see as the inaugural Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week makes its second-to-last stop in Peebles, OH!
For the entirety of its 15 year history, Brushcreek Motorsports Complex’s weekly ticket prices have never changed. Identical to years past, General Admission tickets will cost adults (13 and Older) just $12 and Kids 12 and Under are Free!
