FOREST, Ohio (October 19, 2020) – Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports capped their 2020 campaign with a road trip south of the Mason Dixon, this time joining the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS Series) for a two-day visit to Mountain View Raceway in Spring City, Tennessee, on Friday and Saturday, October 16-17.
Although not ending their trek to foreign territory on top, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports did their best to provide competitiveness during their weekend road trip and secured one top-ten finish, opening their stay in the Volunteer State with an eighth-place performance on Friday. The Forest, Ohio-based race team concluded the Mason Dixon Challenge doubleheader with a 15th-place run on Saturday.
“It was a tough weekend, but it’s nothing to shake our heads at. It was a fun trip and hopefully we have the opportunity to do it again in the future. Now that we know what to expect, I’d like another shot at it,” Matt Westfall said, driver of the Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “I can’t thank Ray Marshall and this entire team enough for their hard work in 2020. Ray is a special guy; he believes in me and he believes in this team. He makes all of the results possible.”
Despite adapting to a dysfunctional schedule as the result of early season COVID-19 restrictions, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will hit the off-season with a load of success to their credit, scoring four victories since July 17 and doing so at three different facilities across two states. Westfall, the 2019 BOSS Series champion, accomplished victories at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on July 17, Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Indiana, on August 29, and at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on September 25 and October 9. The victories at Kokomo Speedway and I-96 Speedway (9/25) were earned during BOSS action, raising Westfall’s BOSS win total to ten in three seasons; four in 2018, four in 2019 and two in 2020.
With all results considered, Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports concluded the 2020 BOSS campaign second in the Series standings, simultaneously accomplishing a fifth-place result in Gas City’s weekly point championship.
“We were competitive on all levels in 2020,” Westfall added. “It was a weird year considering how things started out, but to come out of the quarantine and still accomplish what we did says so much about this team and our focus level. It was an easy year to get distracted and lose our focus, but we never did. I’m proud of this team and I’m already looking forward to next season.”
News and updates pertaining to Ray Marshall Motorsports’ 2021 plans will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Fans are encouraged to stay alert for further details.
