Evan City, Pennsylvania native and Fully Injected teammate, Brandon Spithaler, is set to tackle the big half mile at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway this Saturday night, June 23rd, with the B.O.S.S. (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) wingless ‘410’ sprints for a first time visit! Spithaler, who is still relatively new to wingless sprint car competition, has one victory with the B.O.S.S. series in 2012; that coming on May 19th at Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania. The fearless open-wheel competitor also owns a win this year at the Mercer oval during weekly competition; winning Mercer Raceway Park’s opening night for the ‘410’ sprints for a second consecutive season.
Spithaler has been following the B.O.S.S. series on an almost full-time basis in 2012, and currently sits ninth in the updated standings. The Pittsburgh stop will act as round number six of the 2012 schedule for the wingless warriors, bringing with them a full roster of talent and excitement to ‘Dirt’s Monster Half Mile!’ The B.O.S.S. series travels to tracks all across Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Canada; with Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway acting as the last Pennsylvania stop on this year’s circuit.
Spithaler will kick-off his upcoming weekend at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania on Friday, June 22nd. The former limited sprint car graduate will take part in the Lernerville Speedway ‘Mid-Season Championship’ this Friday night – which, with a victory, could secure a starting spot in this year’s Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup sanctioned by The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series.
The Western Pennsylvania native will be piloting the Tom Burkey owned 57 during wingless competition on Saturday evening, while staying behind the wheel of his own familiar Cyclewarehouse no. 22 at Lernerville Speedway!
