Lunsford, Allison and DeMint take Championships while Skaggs and Jordan Take Wins!

(Peebles, OH) The final points races came down to Saturday Night at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex where the top 4 drivers in Championship standings going into the final race were set equal with the highest finisher taking the top prize! After a wild first showing for the new format in 2015, it was back again to round out the season of racing action in 2016. As the sun set on the final night of racing action the fans prepared to see what was sure to be a wild night of excitement!

The Sport Mod Division was the first on track to decide their Championship. After having to battle through heat races and B-Mains, the 23 Cars in attendance were squeezed down to 18 for the Feature event. Brennan Bobst, Robert Lunsford, Jimmy Spillman and Danny Hamilton were all in contention for a Championship. When the green flag flew it was an immediate battle between contenders Brennan Bobst and Robert Lunsford. The two went back and forth for several laps until Lunsford edged ahead just barely over the #24 of Bobst. Meanwhile up front, Emily Jordan and her #13 car were busy putting on a driving school as she started to run away with the show! Once the checkered flag came down on the field it was Emily Jordan in Victory Lane and Robert Lunsford the 2016 Sport Mod Champion! Lunsford who picked up a win earlier in the year was excited to get to enjoy the championship with his family!

The Modified Division setup next to decide their Championship with Tyler Allison, Taylor Allison, Dustin Sword and Dave Warnock in contention. When the flag flew, Non-Contender Adam Stricker took his #68 car quickly to the lead ahead of the field. Dustin Sword held on to the Championship spot solidly early. Sticker lead until around the halfway mark when hard charging Brian Skaggs too his #20 car around the outside and powered to the lead. Meanwhile the battle heated up for the title when Dustin Sword spun out and had to restart at the rear of the field. This left Tyler Allison with the Championship spot and Sword behind him. Sword worked hard to get his #98 car back to the title spot but came up short as Brian Skaggs crossed the finish line and Tyler Allison won the 2016 Modified Track Championship. In his interview, Allison credited consistency and near perfect weekly attendance along with his family for his great accomplishment.

The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Car Series rounded out their title hunt last on the night. At the drop of the flag Steve Duderstadt roared out front with Cole DeMint, Josh Francis and John Gutman hot on his heels. Some early cautions slowed the event allowing for close racing on the restarts. After swapping the lead several times with DeMint, Steve Duderstadt found him self sideways and into one of the tractor tires marking the bottom of the track. With 2015 Champion Cole DeMint out front, the fans soon watched as the 2014 Champ closed in! Josh Francis’ Blue #2 car quickly closed in on DeMint making it a two way battle for it all! The two swapped positions after battling for nearly 3 laps when the caution flag fell. For the final time of the season the drivers lined up single file behind Josh Francis and the green flag flew. Quickly, DeMint shot low and slid up with Francis holding on to the top spot. As the white flag came down on the two leaders it was Hero or Zero time for Cole DeMint. DeMint set his #12 DeGraphixs machine low to the inside but Francis powered ahead. With Josh holding the low line tight through the final two turns DeMint swung for the fences and flat footed it around the high side. The final seconds of the event will go down in history as one of the Greatest Finishes in Series History as Cole DeMint edged Josh Francis for the win and the Championship by just .072 Seconds at the line.

The 2016 Racing season is over for the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex. Promoter Steven Partin made a statement thanking the tracks Drivers, Fans, Employees and Sponsors “With out the support of everyone involved we couldn’t do what we love to do all summer long. I want to personally thank everyone for their support and ask that you all be looking out for the 2017 Schedule which will come out this winter” To stay updated on all thing Brushcreek make sure to visit www.brushcreekmotorsports.com or find us on Facebook at facebook.com/brushcreekmotorsports and on Twitter by following @BMCupdates
