Buckeye Machine BOSS Tour Heads Home to Wayne County

On the heels of a blockbuster season opener at Fremont Speedway, the Buckeye Machine BOSS sprint tour now sets its sights on the series' most storied venue, the Wayne County Speedway. The Orrville, Ohio 3/8 mile oval was once known as "Buckeye Speedway" but it has since reverted back to its original name. In 2011, then rookie promoter Jason Flory took a shot on a rookie series of wingless 410 sprints and that October night set the tone for what has been a tremendous partnership. The traveling series has now recorded more events here, than at any other venue.

This Saturday, May 10th will see the sixth event in Buckeye Machine BOSS history contested at Wayne County. No other venue has run more than four so far. In the previous 5 events, three different winners have found victory lane. The inaugural series champion, Dustin Smith of Russiaville, Indiana picked up wins in 2011 and 2012. Local young gun and crowd favorite Sheldon Haudenschild of nearby Wooster swept both BOSS appearances at Wayne County a year ago. And Mike Burkin charged from 15th starting spot to win the spring 2012 event.

This weekend, the series welcomes aboard new heat race sponsors K-D Pizza with locations in Ashland, Mansfield, and Wooster and Cowen Truck Lines of Perrysville, Ohio. They will join Burdette Builders of Sunman, Indiana and Lias Tire / American Racer of Indiana, Pennsylvania to present heat race payouts to the competitors.

As always, the BOSS bonus award system will be in effect with The Bridge Restaurant of Sidney, Ohio covering the $50 "hard charger" award. Hochstetler Truck and Auto Repair of Ashland, Ohio will award the highest finishing steel block engine with a $50 bonus. Lynn Cook of Dayton, Ohio will provide a $50 bonus to the night's "Hard Luck" driver of the night. A new award added for 2014 is the new Rusty and Cappie McClure "Lucky Pill Draw" Award. Each night, a number is pre-designated and the person drawing that number (or the closest to it) is rewarded with a free pit pass along with hot dogs and drinks for the crew.

As always, the series runs under an open tire rule. Last week, American Racer tires adorned the feature winning car along with the cars finishing in 4th and 9th respectively. Hoosier tires ran 2nd, 3rd, and 5th a week ago. This shows the competitiveness of the series and BOSS is pleased to have both Hoosier and American Racer providing tire bonuses to the highest finisher on all 4 of each brand.

For teams traveling to Wayne County, mufflers are required. Pit gates open at 4 pm. Pit Passes will be $30. Teams will be paid by BOSS series check at the conclusion of the night. Standard BOSS purse will be in effect and it is as follows: $1500, $800, $700, $600, $500, $450, $400, $375, $350, $325, $300, $290, $280, $270, $260, $250, $250, $250, $250, $250. We will start a 20 car A-Main event. For more information, please contact the series director Aaron Fry at 740-703-3768

Layfield Masters Wayne County BOSS Field

Despite a less than ideal weather forecast, Wayne County Speedway promoter Jason Flory chose to forge ahead to bring the Buckeye Machine BOSS traditional sprints before his fans tonight. For the fans who came out, they were rewarded by one of the most spectacular drives in the history of the series. Grafton, West Virginia crowd pleaser, Andre Layfield, charged from his 16th starting spot and appeared to be destined for a second place finish. However, off the final corner, Layfield was able to surge past Mike Miller to lead the final 50 feet.

The evening began with 26 Buckeye Machine wingless sprint signed in for competition. Heat races were won by Mike Miller of Wapakoneta, Ohio, Brandon Spithaler from Evans City, Pennsylvania, and Dustin Smith from Russiaville, Indiana. For Andre Layfield, the night began ominously in heat #1 when he was scheduled to start on the pole but spun to a stop while lining up. BOSS rules state that any car requiring a second push is sent to the tail. Layfield struggled home 6th in heat #1, then proceeded to half track the field in the B-Main event.

With 20 of the best traditional wingless sprint drivers in the Midwest set to do battle for 25 laps, Adam Miller and Tyler Gunn paced the field to the starter's green flag. Miller, of McDonald, Pennsylvania, surged to a quick opening lap lead in search of his first career sprint car win. His margin was erased for the race's only caution flag when Tyler Gunn slowed with a flat right rear tire at the completion of the first lap.

Back under green, Adam Miller quickly resumed command of the pace with Brandon Spithaler and Johnny Beaber battling for second place. For many fans, the show was watching Layfield in the QuickTime Suspensions #21 who started 16th and was up to 7th in just 5 laps. Layfield flirted dangerously close to the steel guardrail in turn 1 and 2 on many occasions, but managed to pick off one car after the other, then suddenly found himself in the top 5.

As the laps quickly went by, it appeared Adam Miller was staring his first win in the eye, but contact with the wall did some minor rear end damage. This allowed Spithaler and Mike Miller to close the gap forcing a three wide battle for the top spot. Mike Miller was able to take the lead from Adam Miller (no relation) on lap 17 and suddenly it appeared he would score his first career BOSS main event win. But Andre Layfield had the "win it or wear it" attitude and mounted a furious charge over the final 5 laps.

With the white flag in the air, Layfield knew he had one final shot and he made it count. He led only the final 50 feet, but it was the final 50 feet that mattered . The crowd erupted as the cars met the start/finish line with Layfield narrowly edging Mike Miller. Michael Fischesser, the current BOSS point leader worked some heat into his American Racer tires during the long green flag run and was able to charge from 8th to finish 3rd. Early race contender Brandon Spithaler scored 4th place cash while winged superstar Kory Crabtree grabbed the 5th spot. The top 10 finishers were rounded out with Aaron Middaugh, Mike Burkin, Tony Beaber, Logan Hupp, and Chuck Wilson.

The Buckeye Machine BOSS tour now moves on to Eldora Speedway this Saturday, May 17th for family fun night. The $8 general admission will be the best value in racing all year!! Watch for more details soon!
