PEEBLES, Ohio – It has been some time since the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex has been listed on a national sanctioning body’s schedule.
That will change in a big way next year as the three-tenths-mile oval will play host to the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series on April 25.
The Southern Ohio area has long been known as a hotbed of late model racing and a race like this should draw cars from West Virginia, Kentucky and the entire state of Ohio to give the World of Outlaws regulars all they can handle.
Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame promoter Carl Short will be handling the promoting duties.
“I am extremely pleased to be working with the Morton Buildings World of Outlaws and Brush Creek Motorsports Park,” said Short. “I have long thought Brushcreek was worthy of an event like this and I am glad to see it finally happening.”
Short promotes two of the biggest and most prestigious late model races in the country, the Hillbilly 100 at West Virginia’s Tyler County Speedway and the Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park in Ohio.
“I hope the fans that support the Hillbilly 100 and DTWC every year will come out and support what we are doing April 25 and I think they will leave happy they made the trip,” said short. “Brushcreek is one fast and racy track.
Among those expected to take part in the event, which will be called Carl’s Common Man 100, are tour regulars Scott Bloomquist, Chris Madden, Brandon Sheppard, Ricky Weiss and Darrell Lanigan, among others.
Fans in attendance will also have the opportunity leave as winners. Fans who purchase tickets and merchandise in advance will be entered into a drawing, with each driver in the feature drawing a name out of a hat. The driver who wins the race will not only earn the cash prize, but will also earn one lucky fan a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
In addition, First Turn Trucking’s Owner Operator Division and Allied Construction have come together to offer a $2,000 bonus to any driver outside the top-10 in World of Outlaws points should they win the event.
Support classes, start times and additional details will be announced at a later date.
