THE FINAL TWO EVENTS OF THE 4TH ANNUAL BUCKEYE LATE MODEL DIRT WEEK IS ON TAP FOR BRUSHCREEK MOTORSPORTS PARK AND PORTSMOUTH RACEWAY PARK
With at great turnout of 52 drivers last weekend, we head to the final two events of the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by the the ULTIMATE Mid Ohio Valley and the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series. We have seen great racing the first 3 events with a different winner each night. The Atomic Speedway played host to the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Opener and had Eddie Carrier Jr of Salt Rock WV in victory lane. The second night at Moler Raceway Park for the Ike Moler Tune up, it was R J Conley of Wheelersburg OH pulling out the win. Then in night three, "Chubzilla" Chub Frank of Bear Lake PA was the winner of the Don & Hans Gross Memorial.
Next up is the 4th Annual Burn Burner at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles OH. Jackie Boggs won this event in 2015 and 2016. The defending champion in 2017 was Tyler Carpenter. If any one of these two win Friday it will be 4 different winners for this Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week. Current point leader Tim Dohm has been the most consistent the first weekend with 3 top 5 finishes, but 2016 Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion Rod Conley is only 3 points behind and lurking in 3rd spot is the ULTIMATE MOV Point Leader Eddie Carrier Jr just 8 points behind.
For Portsmouth Raceway Park and the Finale, this will be the first visit to the speedway for the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by the ULTIMATE MOV & BOB Series. Portsmouth plays host to the Dirt Track World Championship in October paying $100,000 to the winner. We will crown the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion Saturday night and guarantee the winner a spot in the DTWC worth $2,000 to start. Again, if any of the top finishers in points make the DTWC on their own or takes the Jim Dunn Memorial provisional on October 6th, then it goes down the standings to the next qualified driver not in the show.
Every driver on this tour is trying to position themselves for a provisional spot in either the Jim Dunn Memorial at Midway Speedway on October 6th or the Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park on October 18th thru the 20th. All regional drivers want to make either of these shows on their own but a guaranteed provisional spot would give them some easy minds going into October.
So for every fan that loves Super Late Model racing and the drivers of the MOV and BOB ULTIMATE Regions we look forward to seeing you at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex Friday August 3rd and Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday August 4th for the Finale. We thank all that has supported the ULTIMATE Series so far this season as we grow into your new Regional Series for the MOV and BOB covering OH, WV, KY, and IN.
We want to thank all the marketing sponsors for this event and will continue to add as we get more companies and businesses to join the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Sponsor Family. Again, for dirt racing to continue to be great, you need all four component to keep it going: Sponsors, Tracks, Fans and Race Teams.
