After 6 events in 2012, the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series has seen 6 different winners. The traveling wingless sprint car tour is now set to invade the Buckeye State’s only weekly non wing race track for a showdown between the Waynesfield Raceway Park Buckeye Machine and Fabrication Sprint Series drivers and the stars and cars of the BOSS series on Saturday, July 7th, 2012. The event is the “Dick Spencer Memorial” and will pay $1500 to win and $225 to start with $100 tow money going to any team who fails to make the main event.
Leading the BOSS series into Waynesfield is Gibsonburg, Ohio driver Tony Beaber who holds a very slim lead over Kirk Jeffries of Westerville, Ohio. Dustin Smith of Russiaville, Indiana will be aboard the Lee’s Hydraulic’s #37 and he too sits well within striking distance of the points lead. Landon Simon of Tipp City, Brandon Spithaler of Evans City, Pennsylvania, and Grafton, West Virginia’s Andre Layfield are all fresh off 2012 victories and looking to become repeat BOSS winners for the season. Other BOSS stars expected to be in attendence are 1995 USAC Rookie of the Year Mark Cassella from Weirton, West Virginia, Chuck Wilson from Perrysburg, Lewie Christian from West Jefferson, and Aaron Middaugh from Polk, Ohio.
In the other corner will be the stars and cars of the Waynesfield weekly sprint program led by current points leader Tom Rhoades. Mike Dunlap, Kyle Simon, Rod Henning and Derek Hastings currently round out the top 5 in current WRP points. With Waynesfield averaging well over 20 cars weekly and the BOSS series bringing 10 or more travelers, fans can expect to see 30 or more of the best non wing racers the Buckeye State has to offer.
