Fremont Speedway promoter Rich Farmer and the family of former Fremont Speedway racer Mike Hensel have partnered with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series to offer $3,300 to win the series opener on Saturday, May 4th at the "Track That Action Built". Hensel was a local racer who loved competing without the wings and in honor of his career as car #33, the event will be a 33 lap feature for the $3,300 top prize with $300 to start the 20 car main event. In addition, $200 is guaranteed to the first car who fails to transfer out of the B-Main and all drivers who compete in the program are guaranteed $100 tow money.
Defending BOSS champion, Dustin Smith of Russiaville, Indiana will lead a strong contingent of series regulars into battle including the 2012 top 10 in points, consisting of Tony Beaber of Gibsonburg, Ohio, Landon Simon of Indianapolis, Indiana, Kirk Jeffries of Westerville, Ohio, Aaron Middaugh of Polk, Ohio, Brandon Spithaler of Evans City, Pennsylvania, Chuck Wilson of Perrysburg, Ohio, Lewie Christian of West Jefferson, Ohio, Steve Irwin of Fenton, Michigan, and Mark Cassella of Weirton, West Virginia. Several new drivers have indicated their intentions to compete full time with BOSS in 2013 and will be on hand at Fremont including Chad Wilson, Andre Layfield, Skip Dougherty, Matt Phillips and more.
For the second year in a row, Fremont will kick off the BOSS campaign like last year the Michigan Traditional Sprint series (MTS) will co-sanction the opener. 2012 MTS champ Joe Irwin will lead his group into battle including drivers like Mark Irwin, Joe Bares, Mike Galajda, Nate Bostrom and many more. Fremont Speedway regulars are also expected to join the field on the heels of last year's upset victory by local driver Jamie Miller who was followed by Stuart Brubaker, another Fremont regular.
