BOSS returns to close out Fremont Speedway season

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – The Mo Vaughn Transportation Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) will return to Fremont Speedway Saturday, Oct. 3 to close out the track’s 2015 season. Besides the traditional, non-wing sprints, the winged 305 sprints, 602 late models and dirt trucks will be in action and there will be a special ladies powder puff truck race and a special mechanics race for the late models, who will be racing “topless” on Saturday.

This fall event has been lost to Mother Nature the last two seasons, but hopefully the old saying, "the third time's the charm" holds true.  Fremont has been the scene of some of the biggest and best events of the BOSS tour and this Saturday should offer much the same as it is Flag City Recycling "Family Fun Night" at the track.  

With only two events remaining in the 2015 season, Shawn Westerfeld holds a commanding lead in the BOSS standings.  If he can make Saturday night's main event and finish in the top 10, he will secure the championship with an event still to run.  Past tour champions Mike "The Magic Man" Miller and the "Hustlin Hoosier" Dustin Smith are both determined to take one last shot at Westerfeld. Cooper Clouse sits in the number four spot with Aaron Middaugh and Michael Fischesser locked in a battle over the fifth position.

The last time the BOSS drivers visited Fremont was in August and Thomas “T-Mez” Meseraull picked up the win, becoming the first three time feature winner in a single season for the series. Other BOSS winners in 2015 are:

Brandon Matus – Mercer

Thomas Meseraull T-Mez – Limaland, Lawrenceburg, Fremont

Kody Swanton – Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway

Dallas Hewitt – Waynesfield Raceway Park

Landon Simon – Legendary Hilltop Speedway

Dustin Smith – Tyler County Speedway

Todd Kane – Atomic Speedway

Shawn Westerfeld – Lawrenceburg Speedway

Cooper Clouse – Millstream Speedway

Shane Cottle – Montpelier Motor Speedway

Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer is reminding the ladies planning to compete in the dirt truck powder puff race, they are responsible for securing their own rides and it is only open to those who have not competed in any form of racing. The same holds true in the mechanics race for the late models – the mechanics are responsible for securing their own rides and they can not have competed in any form of racing.

Gates will open Saturday at 4 p.m. with drivers meeting scheduled for 5:30. Racing action will begin promptly at 7 p.m.  Adult general admission will be $14 with seniors admitted for $12.  Students will be $8 with kids 10 and under admitted free.  For race teams, there are no fees to run with BOSS.  Mufflers are required for this event and transponder rental will be $5.



Haubstadt, IN - September 26, 2015 -  The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series drivers competed at Tri-State Speedway Saturday night during the third annual Class Track Fall Roundup.  Kyle Cummins of Princeton, IN, won the 25 lap feature.  The victory was his second for this event in that he also won it in 2014.  Cummins has also won two of the last three MSCS features held at the track this season. The winning sprint car was the 3R deployed by the Rock Steady Racing Team owned by Hank Byram.  The car is powered by a Cummins Race Engine and sponsored by Pro Glide Coatings and Creative Finishing. The winner’s share of the purse was $2,000.

Twenty cars started the sprint car feature.  Max McGhee was the early leader.  He started third on the field and held off pole sitter Zach Daum for the first nine laps.  Daum left the track and competition during a yellow flag erasing his chance for a top finish.  On the restart Cummins was running second and he would take the lead on lap 16 with one of his patented passes down the backstretch and into turn three.  By lap eighteen Brady Short had moved up behind him and the two would match speed at the front of the pack for the final eight circuits.  Short would finish second.  Kent Schmidt of Owensville, IN, took third place with a last lap pass which dropped McGhee to fourth place.  Brandon Mattox would finish fifth.  Mattox had the best finish for the four drivers penalized starting positions for reporting late to staging.

Dakota Jackson, Jordan Kinser, Chet Williams, Aric Gentry, and Bub Cummings made up the rest of the top ten.  Braxton Cummings was eleventh and received the Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award.  Chet Williams, who started twentieth, was the Keizer Aluminum Wheels Hard Charger of the race in moving up to eighth.  Max McGhee and Kyle Cummins won the two preliminary heat races.  Brandon Mattox earned the most passing points for the drivers during the two heat races.

The work area was very busy all night during the MSCS portion of the program.  There were five caution periods during the feature with as many as three cars receiving attention at the same time.  Dakota Jackson made two separate stops in an effort to replace a front shock, restarted at the back, and then raced his way to a sixth place finish.  There were 7 drivers though who were unable to make repairs and could not finish the event.

The final event for the Midwest Sprint Car Series will be held on October 10th at Tri-State Speedway.  The Harvest Cup that night will pay $3,000 to win.  Traditionally that is the night that the series crowns it’s new champion and rookie of the year.   Brady Short had a good points night at the Roundup.  The 11 points Brady gained over Carson Short was the insurance he needed to assure that he will be the MSCS Champion for 2015.  Brandon Morin also has a lock on the Rookie of the Year honors!

The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets competed in a 30 lap feature. Sixteen cars started the Ford EcoBoost Challenge event.  Former
series champion Zac Daum of Pocahontas, IL, proved to be the fastest driver in setting a blistering pace and he won that main event.
Critter Malone was second.  These two drivers were the only two drivers to bring cars to compete in both the sprint and midget
races.  However Malone finished a spot ahead of Daum in the sprints.

Austin Brown, Andrew Felker, and Derek King rounded out the top five for the midgets.  Darren Hagen would finish sixth.  Zach Daum and
Austin Brown won the two heat races.  Gage Walker, who won the August POWRi feature held at Tri-State, was a scratch for the feature.

Haubstadt, IN - September 22, 2015 -  The Hoosier Tire Midwest Sprint Car Series will share in presenting the racing program this Saturday night September 26th with the Lucas Oil POWRi Midgets and the UMP Open Wheel Modifieds.  The occasion is the fourth annual Class Track Fall Roundup at the Tri-State Speedway.  The MSCS Sprint Car feature will pay $2,000 to win.  The triple header of open wheel racing should provide a thrilling program with the promise of excitement as the cars position to enter every turn and then emerge to race each other down the two straightaways.

Only two more race dates are left on the 2015 schedule for MSCS. Both are at Tri-State Speedway.  At this point the racing is not just about the night’s feature purse but season honors and the series point fund.  The fund is made possible with the ongoing support of Hoosier Racing Tire,

Brady Short continues to lead in points accumulated.  Carson Short is second to the Bedford Blaster and has fallen behind 68 points.  A racing incident took Carson out early during the B Main at the Haubstadt Hustler and prevented him from an opportunity to transfer and earn additional points during the feature.

Last season Kyle Cummins locked up his fourth Championship bid at the Fall Roundup.  Brady Short is looking for MSCS Championship number two, having won it for a first time in 2011.  This past Saturday night Brady turned in a record setting performance in winning the Haubstadt Hustler.  He became the All Time Feature Wins leader for the series with 21 victories.  Ten of those wins have happened during this season.

The remainder of the standings also depend on results from the last two events before they can be finalized.  Last season’s Rookie of the Year James Lyerla is third in the standings.  He finished seventh in the overall points in 2014 and has worked to improve upon those stats this season.  This year’s MSCS Rookie Points leader is Brandon Morin of Jasonville, IN.  He is currently ninth in the points and was ranked as high as sixth in the standings earlier this season.  Kyle Cummins is currently tenth and sits on a bubble with at least two other drivers still within reach of a top ten season finish.

Even though Brady Short has enjoyed a dominating season other drivers have picked up victories.  Chase Stockon has two wins.  He won the season opener and then again at mid season.  Kyle Cummins won on Labor Day Weekend and led 35 laps of the Hustler.  Robert Ballou won on the 4th of July weekend.  Thomas Meseraull won one of the three Memorial Day weekend features.  Shane Cottle took the feature at Montpelier.  Brady Bacon and Bryan Clauson won the two USAC-MSCS co-sanctioned events in April.  That is a total of eight different feature winners!

The final race of the season for the MSCS Sprint Cars will be on October 10th.  That is the date for the annual Harvest Cup at Tri-State Speedway.  It is two big season ending races and just two weeks apart.  Racing begins at 7:30 P.M. Central time.


The POWRi Midgets will be making their second appearance of the season.  The event is a special event new to and within an existing special event.  The program is also the second portion of the Ford Eco Boost Challenge.  The first portion was held at Tri-State Speedway on August 1st with Gage Walker becoming the feature winner. Walker races out of Fairland, IN, and the win was the first of his career with the Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget Series.

Among those drivers expected to compete are Darren Hagen, Andrew Felker, Austin Brown, Kyle Schuett, and Spencer Bayston.  Those five make up the Top Five in the standings for the series.

2015 Wingless Oklahoma Warriors Season Review

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – September 20, 2015 - The Wingless Oklahoma Warriors have completed their second full season and as he did in the inaugural season for the series it was Norman, Oklahoma’s Koby Barksdale taking home the series championship in what turned out to be a very successful 2015 race season for the tour.

For the second year in a row the series kicked off their 2015 campaign at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas as a support division for the 5th annual “Air Capital Shootout,” which featured the National Championship Racing Association 360-ci sprint car series. The feature finale saw Blanchard, Oklahoma resident Gil White picking up the first victory of the new season with nine cars pit side for the March 28th event.

One week later it was off to the first of six events at the little, red-clay oval of Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Oklahoma where it was Bristow’s Tim Kent getting the best of a fifteen car field to take home his only series feature win of the season.

Outlaw Motor Speedway in Oktaha, Oklahoma held the next WOW event one week later and it was Collinsville resident Craig Carroll claiming his first career series victory as fifteen drivers came to compete atop the new-look track, now being run by last year’s series official Chris Smith.

A bit of a break seemed to be a time to regroup for Shelby Byrd as the young Oklahoma City driver would win the first of his three events, this coming in a return visit to Lawton Speedway where a season high seventeen drivers were pit side.

Barksdale, the reigning series champion, waited until June 6th before he claimed his first of two feature wins on the season as the tour visited Lawton Speedway once again.

The first of two feature victories in a row for Byrd came on June 20 at Lawton Speedway and once again, six days later in the series only 2015 appearance at Creek County Speedway in Kellyville.

A well-deserved, one month break for the series before their next to last appearance of the season at Lawton Speedway where, on July 25, it was Cyril, Oklahoma resident Cord Dodson claiming his first career series victory over a seventeen car field.

The birth place of the WOW (then called “e-sprints”), Brill Motor Speedway in Meeker, hosted the tour where a strong field of sixteen cars signed in and Barksdale claiming victory atop the quarter mile oval.

Lawton Speedway would host the final WOW point show for 2015 on August 15th and it was Dillion Burks turn to score his first career series victory and Barksdale would clinch the championship.

The final 2015 WOW top ten point standings looks like this: 1) Koby Barksdale 2110, 2) Ryan Dean 2) 1590, 3) Lee Wade 1330, 4) Gil White 1280, 5) Shelby Byrd 1250, 6) Chris Gordon 1210, 7) Dillion Burks 1140, 8) Ricky Crawford 1090, 9) James Fabian 1060, 10) Craig Carroll 950.

Thirty-five different drivers from three states (Oklahoma, Texas and California) competed in at least one of the ten events that were held. Byrd won a series-leading three events and Barksdale won two while Gil White, Tim Kent, Craig Carroll, Cord Dodson and Dillion Burks all earning one feature a piece.

The career feature winners for the two year, WOW series looks like this:

Koby Barksdale (11)

Shelby Byrd (4)

Kyle Cobb (3)

Gil White (2)

Tim Kent, Craig Carroll, Cord Dodson, Dillion Burks, David McDuffie (1)  

The Wingless Oklahoma Warriors would like to thank the following series partners for their involved with the series during the 2015 race season: Harryman’s Insurance of Newcastle, Jeff Sleeper, Joey Buntin and O’Reilly Auto Parts, Steve Ochs and Showtime. A huge “thank you” to Marcy Edwards and Lawton Speedway as the “home track” for the WOW in 2015 as well as special thanks to 81 Speedway, Brill Motor Speedway, Outlaw Motor Speedway and Creek County Speedway for hosting at least one WOW event this season.

The WOW series could not be possible without the hard work and dedication from the following: Jackie Jones, Annette Leesekamp, Jim and Ernie Messmer, Gil White, Annie Nestell, Kevin Barksdale and Michelle Walden.

Drivers will be honored Libby’s Café in Norman on December 5, 2015 at 8:00 PM. If you are interested in attending R.S.V.P. is required and you can find any and all information on the WOW 2015 banquet on their official facebook page for this event, 2015 Wingless Oklahoma Warrior Celebration Banquet.



Haubstadt, IN - September 19, 2015 -  Brady Short made a valiant return to victory lane at Tri-State Speedway Saturday night.  The Mitchell, IN, driver won the biggest race of the year for non-wing 410 sprints at the track.  The Haubstadt Hustler paid $10,000 to win and was co-sanctioned with the MSCS Sprints and USAC Sprints competing together.

The feature event was for a 40 lap distance.  Brady Short would start 12th in the 24 car line-up.  The front row included two time Haubstadt Hustler winner Daron Clayton and four time MSCS Champion Kyle Cummins.  After two complete restarts for spinning cars Cummins shot into the lead.  Clayton began experiencing problems and pulled into the infield.  Dakota Jackson had already took the runner-up spot and battled driver after driver to stay in the chase for a top finish.  Cummins was fast and stretched the lead.  By lap 18 Short had moved through the front half of the field to take second.  With lapped traffic a factor he was able to gain ground and the Hustler was shaping up to be another Cummins and Short dual.

That ended abruptly on lap 35 when Cummins made contact with a car that had spun on the front stretch.  The car was sideways in front of oncoming traffic and there was no where for the leader to go.  The crash eliminated Cummin’s 3R ride from further competition.  Brady Short now had the lead for the restart.  Kevin Thomas Jr. would take on the challenge from second.  The two drivers would finish one two after another very quick five laps.  Dakota Jaskson was third followed by Brady Bacon and Chase Stockon.

Short was elated!  “This is a huge win - $10,000!”  It was a comeback effort after he was the one involved in a crash two weeks ago while battling for the lead.  “Once we got to racing I was confident that we had a good race car.  We’ll take this win!  It will pay for parts!”  The victory was the 21st MSCS career win for Brady Short and he now leads in all time feature wins.  It was also his 10th MSCS feature victory this season!

The second five for the feature included Dave Darland, Robert Ballou, Chris Windom, C.J. Leary, and Thomas Meseraull.  Dave Darland won the first heat race.  Ballou flipped in the fourth turn at the start of that heat and he had to transfer to the A by placing in the semi or B. Brandon Mattox won the 12 lap B Main which had a 14 car field.

Carson Short’s night ended early on the first lap of the B when he flipped his sprint in turn four.  Kyle Cummins, Brady Bacon, and Donny Brackett won the other three heats.  Shane Cottle received the  Wilwood Tuff Brakes Award for finishing eleventh in the feature.

The Midwest Sprint Car Series will be in action again Saturday night September 26th.  That is the night for the Class Track Fall Round-Up at Tri-State Speedway which will include the addition of the POWRi Midgets to the program along with the Modifieds.  It is another great event at the Haubstadt oval as the season winds down.  The final event for MSCS and the track is the Harvest Cup which will be on October 10th.

A Main (40 Laps) - Brady Short, Kevin Thomas Jr., Dakota Jackson, Brady Bacon, Chase Stockon, Dave Darland, Robert Ballou, Chris Windom, C.J. Leary, Thomas Meseraull, Shane Cottle, Aaron Farney, Brandon Mattox, Kent Schmidt, Jon Stanbrough, James Lyerla, Kyle Cummins, Donny Brackett, Chad Boespflug, Tracy Hines, Justin Grant, Hunter Schuerenberg, Mike Terry Jr., Daron Clayton

Meseraull Claims $5,000 in BOSS / Hensel Memorial Win  
San Jose, California native Thomas Meseraull made the Cali natives 3 for 3 in the Mo Vaughn Transport - BOSS / Hensel Memorial by claiming the $5,000 first prize on Saturday night.  The two previous events were won by Robert Ballou (Rocklin, CA) in 2013 and Kody Swanson (Kingsburg, CA) in 2014.  The win however, did not come easy for "T-Mez" as a miscue after his heat win found him upside down in the Stan Courtad #9x in Fremont Speedway's first turn.
The evening began with 43 Mo Vaughn Transport BOSS sprint cars signing in for qualifications.  The one lap - against the clock proved tricky for some and advantageous for others.  Tracy Hines in the Hines #4T set fast time with a 14.494 to edge Meseraull and Kody Swanson out of the fast time award.  After qualifying, Hines was honored on the front stretch where he rolled the die to bring up the "8" inversion.  Therefore, the fastest 8 cars who transferred out of their heat would make the 8 car inversion.
Heat race events saw the top 6 inverted in each heat with the top 4 advancing to the main event and getting their qualifying time back.  Hines, Meseraull, Derek Hastings, Shane Cottle and Landon Simon all won heat race events.  Meseraull made his win a little extra exciting for the fans as he hooked the cushion and flipped in turn 1 after taking the checkered flag.  The team was able to make quick repairs and be ready for the main event.   The twin B-Main events were claimed by Kody Swanson and Todd Keen.
The 33 lap Hensel Memorial found tour regulars Kent Wolters  and Cody Gardner pacing the field to the starters green flag.  Scotty Weir and Ted Hines made up row 2 with Mike Miller and Landon Simon in the 3rd row.  Meseraull and Hines would start together in row 4 with Cottle starting back in the #13 position.
The initial start saw 3 cars coming together in turn 1 and 2 ultimately eliminating Bill Rose and Michael Fischesser.  At the drop of the second green it was Tipp City, Ohio driver Kent Wolters who rocketed to a comfortable early lead over Gardner.  Several cars were on the mover early including Meseraull, Swanson, and Cottle who had started 13th.  Landon Simon was also on the move early,  however, working lap #3, an over eager Simon spun in turn 1 to bring out the race's first caution.
Back under green, Wolters continued to show the way but Meseraull was clearly the man on the move taking over the runner-up spot on lap 6.  Just as the lead battle was taking shape, the race's second and final caution flew when Andy Feil spun to a stop working lap #9.  The restart order saw Wolters leading with Meseraull, Cottle, Gardner, Tracy Hines, Weir, Swanson, Brandon Spithaler, Brian Smith and Ted Hines rounding out the top 10.
On the restart, Meseraull needed less than a lap to take over the top spot to officially lead lap #9.  Cottle quickly moved to the runner-up spot and over the next 23 laps the 2 heavyweight contenders would throw down in a battle royale for a $5,000 payday.  Meseraull, on all four Hoosier tires, held steady at the point as the charging Cottle flirted with disaster reeling in the leader in the Hazen #57 clad with all four American Racers.  The duo entered lapped traffic on lap 18  as the war waged on with Meseraull able to keep the Courtad 9 just a few car lengths in front.
The deciding factor of the race may have come on lap #25 when Meseraull dove inside a lapped car exiting turn 4 and Cottle throttled the car to the high side making it 3 wide down the narrow Fremont front stretch.  Contact was made but everyone stayed straight and Meseraull was able to pull away by a few car lengths.  The final 8 circuits saw Cottle try valiantly to reel in Meseraull, and a last lap herculean effort saw Cottle throw the car in deep to pull even with the leader off turn 4, but Meseraull had the momentum to hang on by a car length in yet another exciting BOSS feature finish!  Defending race winner Kody Swanson charged from his 11th starting spot to round out the podium.
The rest of the top 5 were Tracy Hines and Brian Smith who was driving the Mike Hensel tribute #33 car.  The rest of the top 10 were Kent Wolters, Cody Gardner, Dallas Hewitt, Brandon Spithaler, and Shawn Westerfeld.  Hewitt was the Bridge Restaurant "Hard Charger" of the night and took home an extra $333 courtesy of Hughes Racing.  Westerfeld quietly extended his points lead over defending champ Mike Miller and inaugural champion Dustin Smith.
The tour is now silent for 2 weeks before returning to action on Friday, September 4th at Moler Raceway Park in Williamburg, Ohio.  This will be the very first visit to the 1/4 mile bullring located deep in southwestern Ohio.  Watch for details on this event in the coming days!
