(Peebles, OH) Overcast conditions gave way to a tacky and fast race track at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex last Saturday night. It was the final race before local schools got started and families came out to see a good night of racing action as the 2014 season winds down.
The first cars on track were the 4 cylinder Crazy Compacts. Keith Anderson picked up the easy win. Meanwhile in second place, Kevin Howell of West Union, OH and Tommy Stout Jr of Peebles, OH battled it out. Kevin Howell looked high and low trying to get by the young driver. Tommy was able to hold off Kevin for second place. The top 5 finishers were Keith Anderson, Tommy Stout, Kevin Howell, Mike Maddison and Greg Anderson
The Hidden Gem Web Designs Sport Mods hit the track next. Tyler Smith and Harrison Hall lead the field to the green flag in the 15 lap feature. Tyler Smith got the early jump and never looked back. Harrison Hall was able to hold of charges and finish in the second spot. Tyler Smith picked up win number 5 of the season. Harrison Hall, Greg Litteral, Danny Fout and Jerry Florence Jr rounded out the top 5.
Modifieds hit the track next with Dave Jamison picking up the win after drivers having problems earlier in the night limited the field down. Chad Barr finished second. The Ohio Valley Roofers Legend Cars followed the modifieds for their feature event. From the drop of the green flag there were several drivers who proved to be fast enough to battle for the lead. Josh Francis, Tom Partin, Tommy Stout Sr, and Rusty DeMint all were fast enough to make some moves. Josh Francis lead early but it was no easy doing. The closest charger was Tom Partin who nearly cleared Francis but couldn’t as the blue and yellow number 2 had the high side momentum and passed Partin’s number 4 ‘Grave Digger’ car back. Josh Francis held on to take the second win of his Legend Car career. Tom Partin, Rusty DeMint, Steven Partin and Steve Duderstadt rounded out the top 5.
There was one final race left, the Dark Horse Dash for the Sport Mods. This was a race for drivers who had never won at Brushcreek Motorsports. Jerry Florence Jr picked up the win and the first win of his career.
