Simon Scores Again in MVT / BOSS Sprints at Wayne County

In the four year history of the Mo Vaughn Transport BOSS tour, there has been very few drivers record multiple wins in the same season. Diversity and large car counts have seen seasons with 11 different winners in 12 events in 2012 and 13 different winners in 14 events in 2013. Now, Landon Simon joins a very short list of drivers to score more than a single BOSS win in the same season. Last night he scored his 3rd career BOSS win by picking up the main event victory at the Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio driving the Mount Baker Vapor #24.

The evening began with 22 drivers signed in for competition setting up 3 exciting heat races. Before the action really got underway, Cincinnati driver Buddy Lowther broke a rear axle in hot laps and narrowly averted a serious situation as he rolled the car to a stop. The 3 preliminary heat races were won by three recent tour winners, Simon, Cooper Clouse, and Shawn Westerfeld.

The top 3 drivers from each heat race went into a redraw that found defending champion Mike Miller and youngster Cooper Clouse on the front row. Michael Fischesser and Andy Feil made up row #2 with a stacked row 3 consisting of Simon and Westerfeld. From the very drop of the green flag, it was Mike Miller who rocketed to an early lead. The race's only red flag would fly quickly though when Chuck Wilson and Randy Fink tangled on lap 2. Wilson somehow saved what appeared to be a disaster happening, but Fink was not as fortunate as he rolled the #41 car but emerged unhurt.

Back under green, Miller continued to show the way with Clouse in tow, but Simon and Westerfeld were like a cavalry charge on their way to the front. Miller was hampered by a shock that broke shortly after the red flag, and he was forced to give way to Simon who took the lead on lap #5. Westerfeld was to the runner-up spot by lap #6 and the duo would throw down over the remaining circuits to decide the outcome on the Orrville, Ohio 3/8 mile clay oval.

Two more cautions on laps 13 and 18 for Steve Little and Jeremy Shambaugh would give Westerfeld the opportunity to close up on Simon. However, Simon proved to be up to the task and was able to turn back the herculean efforts of the "Guilford Gasser" Shawn Westerfeld to score the win. Behind the lead pair, Dustin Smith edged Michael Fischesser for the 3rd spot after those two drivers put on a spirited battle in the closing laps. Cooper Clouse rounded out the top after turning away a determined charge by the fresh out of retirement, Bobby Distel who turned in a fantastic performance at some points running in the top 5 despites starting 11th. Rounding out the rest of the top 10 were Mike Miller, Aaron Middaugh, Andy Feil and Chad Wilson.

Shawn Westerfeld extended his series points lead and has the inside edge on the 2015 championship. But Smith, Miller and Clouse all have some other ideas left to try! The series now heads to Fremont Speedway next Saturday, August 15th for the Mike Hensel Memorial. Watch for the exciting details of this highest paying BOSS event to be announced in the next few days.






Westerfeld and Clouse Score MVT / BOSS Wins

Following the Friday night event at Atomic Speedway, the Mo Vaughn Transport BOSS triple header weekend moved on to Lawrenceburg Speedway on Saturday and a first ever visit to Millstream Speedway on Sunday. Local favorite and current BOSS point leader Shawn Westerfeld of Guilford, Indiana scored his first tour victory on his home track in the second annual Jason Soudrette Memorial. One night later, Cooper Clouse would pick up his first tour win and also the first ever sprint car win of his career by claiming the Millstream feature. With Todd Kane scoring the thrilling win on Friday night, that made the weekend 3 for 3 with first time BOSS winners.

Saturday's event at Lawrenceburg found 29 cars signed in for competition on a night dedicated to the memory of one of the tour's original supporters. Jason Soudrette, who lost his battle with cancer a little over a year ago, was an adamant supporter of the new series in 2011 and helped the series get its first national attention with an interview on Jackslash.

Heat race events at Lawrenceburg were won by Shawn Westerfeld, C.J. Leary, Brandon Spithaler and Mike Miller. The B-Main was claimed by Garrett Abrams in an event that became almost a survival test. A four car pile-up in turn one eliminated several cars with Dustin Smith and Steve Little winding up on their tops. Both drivers were able to walk away.

The 25 lap A-Main was paced to the green flag by Nick Bilbee and Shawn Westerfeld. Bilbee jumped the initial start and the ensuing caution found BOSS regular Kirk Jeffries climbing a wheel as the field slowed, sending Jeffries on a vicious end-over-end series of flips. Thankfully Jeffries was out of the car quickly and was able to walk away. Unfortunately, the carnage was not over as the restart found Mike Miller spinning while Brandon Spithaler hooked an infield tire and executed one of the highest sprint car flips in BOSS history, completely destroying the Tom Burkey owned #57B. Spithaler was also able to walk away with no injuries.

Once finally underway it was Joss Moffatt who grabbed the early lead but Shawn Westerfeld only needed until lap 4 to roll around Moffatt on the high side to take command. C.J Leary, Dickie Gaines and a hard charging Thomas Meseraull made up the early top 5. The race's first caution flew on lap #9 when Cooper Clouse got into the wall and then spun in turn 1. Seven laps later, the only other caution flew when Nick Bilbee tried to throw a slider on Jarrett Andretti and the pair made contact, sending Andretti around and into the wall. Andretti was eliminated and Bilbee was sent to the tail of the field.

Over the final ten laps, Westerfeld held the point as the class of the field inching away from C.J. Leary as the laps wound down. It was Meseraull in the Keen #18 who appeared to be the only driver as fast as Westerfeld, but with no more cautions, the 15th starting Meseraull had to settle for 3rd. At the finish it was Westerfeld, Leary, and Meseraull with Dickie Gaines and Joss Moffatt rounding out the top 5. Michael Fischesser charged from 20th to 6th to take home the Bridge Restaurant "Hard Charger" Award with Garrett Abrams, Justin Owen, Cody Gardner and Mike Miller rounding out the top 10.

On Sunday, the tour concluded the grueling 3 day weekend at Millstream Speedway in Findlay, Ohio. A great field of 31 cars were signed in despite the tour losing 3 cars from the previous night's carnage. The preliminary heats were won by Landon Simon, Luke Hall, Logan Hupp and Dallas Hewitt. The always exciting B-Main found Kody Swanson taking the win which would set the stage for him to be a star of the main starting from 17th position.

The 25 lap feature event saw Thomas Meseraull in the Cortard #9x on the pole with youngster Cooper Clouse alongside. At the drop of the green, Meseraull wasted no time in flexing his muscle and charging to a commanding lead. The race stayed clean and green for 17 laps and Meseraull got into lapped traffic very quickly on the 1/2 mile oval. Clouse was under siege from a trio of cars charging from behind including Landon Simon, Dallas Hewitt and a charging Kody Swanson. Then, disaster struck.

With a full straightaway lead on the field, Meseraull ran down the backstretch into turn 3 where Dustin Smith had just gotten into the wall and began to flip. Smith's #77 car rolled down the banking leaving Meseraull with nowhere to go. The resulting contact eliminated Meseraull. Smith was able to walk away from the accident, which was his second flip in as many nights.

With only 8 laps remaining, 16 year old Cooper Clouse, the 2014 National Non Wing Rookie of the Year, was now in command of the field. In search of his first career sprint car victory, Clouse ran on the ragged edge of control over the closing laps with Landon Simon rapidly closing to apply pressure. With the white flag in the air, Clouse stepped over the edge of control into turn 3 and with a slight bobble the crowd rose to their feet at Simon closed in. However, Clouse kept his composure and gassed the car on to victory and into the record books as the BOSS tour's youngest winner in history. Simon was a very close second with Hewitt third. Swanson was "hard charger" of the night coming to 4th as Shawn Westerfeld extended his points lead with a solid 5th place finish. Rounding out the top 10 were Steve Irwin, Logan Hupp, Luke Hall, Michael Fischesser, and Chad Wilson.






Todd Kane Wins MVT / BOSS Atomic Thriller

If you missed Last night's Atomic Speedway night number one of the Open Wheel Championship, then you missed the most exciting race in Mo Vaughn Transport /BOSS history and according to many track old timers, the most exciting feature in Atomic Speedway's modern history. A three car battle that saw cars swapping positions in every corner with all 3 leading at some point over the last 2 laps. With the fans on their feet, the trio of racers hit the line in a photo finish that found Todd Kane picking up the win, with Landon Simon second and Dallas Hewitt coming home third while executing a vicious series of flips down the front stretch, destroying the Chip Pearson #69 car.

Landon Simon and Todd Kane paced the 20 car A-Main to the starter's green flag with Kane jumping out to a quick early lead in the Lewie Christian owned #8. Slicing and dicing was going on all over the pack with cars running from the inside wall to the outside wall. The race's only hiccup was a lone red flag when Kent Wolters rolled the #21K in turn 3 with Steve Little also involved. Both drivers were eliminated.

With Kane still leading and Simon in tow, it was 8th starting Dallas Hewitt who was running up on the wall and reeling in the lead pair. In the closing laps, the lead battle that brought fans to their feet was not the only great race taking place. The battle for 4th was equally exciting as Aaron Middaugh, Dustin Smith, Kirk Jeffries and Michael Fischesser all left everything they had on the Atomic clay.

For Kane, the win was his first career BOSS feature victory with Simon and the flipping Hewitt running second and third. Aaron Middaugh and Kirk Jeffries rounded out a hard fought top five with the balance of the top 10 being Michael Fischesser, Dustin Smith, Brandon Whited, Cooper Clouse, and Mike Miller.

Preliminary heat races were won by Hewitt, Bob McMillin, Kane and Dustin Smith. Local veteran Randy Fink scored an impressive win in the B-Main. Overall 28 cars were on hand.

Tonight's action moves on the Lawrenceburg Speedway in Indiana. Sunday the traveling BOSS racers move on to Millstream Speedway in Findlay, Ohio.
