Boespflug Prepares for the Final USAC National Event in the Midwest

Plainfield, IN -  Coming off a weekend of misfortune the break in the USAC National schedule has allowed Chad Boespflug with the help of Robert Brown, HAR team member, to rebuild for the final USAC National appearance in Indiana in 2017. The rescheduled Tony Hulman Classic is set for this Saturday October 14th at the Terre Haute Action Track in Terre Haute, IN kicking off with a Fan Pit Party at 3:30pm. Boespflug has finished in the runner up position to Chris Windom the past two USAC race at T.H.A.T. this weekend the plan is to end that bridesmaid streak. Together he and Brown feel they have found the speed the HAR Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69 has been lacking and are confident heading into the final stretch of the USAC National schedule.

"I am looking forward to getting back into the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser 69 Maxim Saturday. We were fast at Terre Haute in September and I think we have made gains in the past month that Robert and I have worked together on, even though the results have not shown. We have had a fast car, but poor qualifying has put us behind going into the features. With the USAC format qualifying is huge, your whole night depends on it. Starting deep and being able to pass through the field shows we have the speed, but we need to put together solid nights these next few weeks as we head into Ovals. Our luck has got to turn around sooner or later, but for now I have to thank my guys that have stuck behind me and keep digging even when were down as a team." - Chad Boespflug

Chad Boespflug's Headed "Home" in the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser 69

Plainfield, IN -  The 6th Annual Kokomo Speedway Smackdown saw the HAR 69 in trouble multiple nights with no where to go and falling victim of circumstance. Boespflug then had to have to fight his way to a better finish after having to restart at the tail while running in the top 10 two different times. Thursday was the best night all around for Boespflug and the HAR Team finishing just outside of the top 5 in 6th. Another top 10 finish would come again in the Smackdown Finale. After getting caught up in a caution halfway through the 40 lap main event Boespflug found his groove though the middle of turns 1 & 2 and the bottom of turns 3 & 4. Settling in to what he found was the fastest groove for the HAR 69 he races his way from 19th back to 9th when the checkered flag flew.

"Man sometimes I feel like if we didn't have bad luck we wouldn't have any luck at all. It was definitely an up and down Kokomo Smackdown this year. We got caught up in someone elses mess the one night, had mechanical issues in the BMain another, but this Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser Team stuck with us and I made my 6th consecutive Smackdown AMain start Saturday and finished in the top 10, even after having to restart from the tail." - Chad Boespflug

Coming off an up and down four day race weekend at the Baddest Bullring in Indiana Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser Team hard at work in the Indianapolis based shop to prepare for what lies ahead. With just two days to wash, maintaince, and load the trailer before starting their 32 hour trek to Northern California to start USAC/CRA California Sprint Week. California Sprint Week is compiled of 6 races that stretch from wine country to dairy farms and cotton fields as far as you can see. CSW kicks off with the two day 10th Annual Louie Vermeil Classic at Calistoga Speedway in Napa Valley. The mini series will then travel south to Petaluma then back north to Chico before landing at the coast at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA. The final leg of the trip will see Boespflug making a return to his hometown of Hanford, CA to finish out the week of racing. Teams will travel from north to south over 700 miles in 6 days all chasing one thing, the California Sprint Week Title. 

"I have been working hard to get this trip put together to take the Hoffman 69 to California Sprint Week and with some added financial support it's now able to happen. Being able to race CSW in a car that I have raced in all year I think is an advantage for sure. The past few years I have been able to race a few hit and miss shows during CSW for other owners and that was tough to adjust and be competitive racing guys that are in their primary cars. I am looking forward to all of the stops that CSW makes, but especially Hanford. Being able to race at "home" in front of so many people who have supported me through the start of my career and that continue to support my racing across the country is special. Most of those fans and family members of mine are not able to make it to Indiana or the midwest to watch me race., so I am excited to end the week there. I have to thank Abreu Vineyards, Fox Paving, HAR, Manvel Motorsports, Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser, and Westin Diversified Services for making this trip possible. - Chad Boespflug

"I am looking forward to racing with the Grau Family again and branching out to four new race tracks for me. The Grau's have prepared the #34 Maxim Chassis and will travel from Phoenix where we will meet in Arkansas for the first of four races. I had the opportunity to race for John Grau in May when a USAC National race was rained out in Indiana. We had a strong night with a 3rd place finish at ET. I am confident that they have prepared a car that will be in contention to win each night. I am excited to get this week started." - Chad Boespflug

Chad Boespflug Collected Multiple Podium Finishes for HAR to Round Out Indiana Sprint Week

Plainfield, IN Thursday July 20th 2017 - The 30th Annual AMSOIL USAC Indiana Sprint Week has was stretched out over the course of 10 days of grueling heat, tornado warnings, and heavy rains to name a few hurdles. Trying is an understatement when describing what ISW was to not just Hoffman Auto Racing, but to all teams who competed in the 7 race mini series. ISW brings out the best of the best from coast to coast in non wing sprint car competition. Some teams travel thousands of miles to compete in Indiana, the hot bed of non wing sprint car racing. Fortunate for Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69 Team they are based out of Indianapolis and are just a short tow from track to track. However, what started out to be a well designed travel schedule compiled of venues across the state quickly turned a bit more hectic with added seat time, in the tow rig that is, to bounce back and forth to hit the venues that were postponed due to rain. With that came no "days off" as those were quickly filled with makeup races. Not only did the team's schedules go from busy to really busy with the increased travel, the fans who support the mini series were forced to make new arrangements as well. The loyalty of the fan base that ISW has was shown even more this year with near capacity crowds and parking lots filled with cars and campers as far as you could see.

With car counts hovering around 40 the racing each night was at the highest level of competition that most teams will face all year. Unfortunately Boespflug and the HAR Team struggled to find their groove the first two nights of the series finishing 15th at Kokomo Speedway and 19th at Lawrenceburg Speedway after taking a provisional. The team rebounded to a 4th place finish at Gas City Speedway followed by 2nd at Bloomington Speedway, and an 8th place finish at Tri-State Speedway. Boespflug would cap the week off on a high for HAR with another podium finish at Lincoln Park Speedway. finishing 3rd. Although Boespflug and the HAR team pulled it together with two podiums and a fourth late in the week it was not enough to regain the points lost early in the week and finished 7th in overall ISW points. 

"What a long trying week for not only myself but the team, we rebounded well after a couple of bad nights. Thank you to the Hoffman Auto Racing Team for their continued hard work. I believe this was one of the hardest Indiana Sprint Weeks I have ever been apart of with the extended days dues to rain outs. Thank you USAC for giving us a great event to be apart of and to showcase our sport to tens of thousands of fans." Chad Boespflug

Boespflug and HAR will take advantage of the downtime in the USAC National schedule to rebuild motors and maintenance before the series heads west to Kansas and Missouri the last week of July. During the week off Boespflug will travel to California to race once again for Dwight Cheney at Perris Auto Speedway Saturday July 22nd.

Chad Boespflug Scores No Way Out 40 Win for Hoffman Auto Racing

Plainfield, IN - While adding a No Way Out 40 Win to his credit Chad Boespflug also added a notable win to Hoffman Auto Racing's already impressive stats. Saturday in addition to a complete MSCS event Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN hosted the No Way Out 40 makeup feature that had been postponed due to rain in the spring.  Track promoters decided to completely reset to the original starting lineup that was set in March rather than picking up on lap 8 where the feature was called due to rain. The complete restart saw Boespflug starting 4th in the 40 lap AMain. Boespflug jumped out to the early race lead passing both Brady Short and Jeff Bland Jr. before the completion of lap #1. Boespflug held off a hard charging Short leading all 40 laps to take the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69 to victory lane. The 9th Annual No Way Out 40 was Boespflug first career win at Brownstown Speedway.

Coming straight off of a feature win the celebration period was short lived as the team had to switch focus to the full MSCS program that followed. Boespflug timed 3rd quick earning him a front row starting position for MSCS heat race competition where he would finish 2nd. The feature inversion saw Boespflug starting inside the second row for the 30 lap MSCS AMain. Falling back early after moving to the top to try something other than the following each other around the bottom as the track surface changed Boespflug slipped back to 8th. Lap after lap Boespflug searched the track for the faster line. Running to top he was able to gain momentum to gain one more spot and finish 7th before the checkers flew.

"We have been struggling so being able to put 40 good laps together and capitalize and win is great for this Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser Team. It is pretty cool to add my name to the list of No Way Out 40 winners. I owe a thank you to the team behind me and all of the supporting partners for their support. We have been tried over the past month so this win is huge, it definitely makes all or the late nights at the shop worth it." - Chad Boespflug

A Trying USAC Eastern Storm for the Hoffman Auto Racing Team

Plainfield, IN - An AMSOIL USAC Eastern Storm that Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser 69 Team are less than proud of has come to an close. The conclusion of the 5 day stint in Central Pennsylvania couldn't come soon enough for the HAR Team. A week filled with ups and downs and extreme heat was very trying on the team. Amidst the lows of the week Boespflug did qualify in the top 10 4 out of the 5 nights and scored a top 5 and two top 10 finishes at Lincoln Speedway and Susquehanna Speedway. The final night of Eastern Storm was one of the better nights overall for Boespflug and the team qualifying well, winning the heat race, and adding another top 10 finish to the week. 

The team has made their way back to the Indianapolis based shop where they have taken time to wash, maintenance, and regroup for the rescheduled USAC Tony Hulman Classic at the Terre Haute Action Track this Friday. Saturday the team will return to Brownstown Speedway for another makeup event that was shortened in the spring due to rain. The No Way Out 40 feature will be made up in conjunction with a full MSCS program.

A Podium Finish for Boespflug During USAC's Return to Knoxville

Plainfield, IN - As the USAC National Series headed west of Indiana for the first time in 2017 the first stop was I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska Friday. A strong field of traveling cars, some west coast regulars, and a few locals filled the field in the Corn Husker state. A 6th place qualifying run followed by advancement through the heat race Chad Boespflug put the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner 69 into the show. The feature inversion was in Boespflug's favor as he would set the pace from the pole position. The invert may have fell to his advantage, but as he fought a tight race car right from the start Boespflug was unable to capitalized on the good starting position and began to fall back early. Unable to recover the lost ground Boespflug finished 12th in the AMain.

Entering Saturday with the attitude "today is a new day" is just what Boespflug and the HAR team did. A fresh start and a new game plan was set as Boespflug would make his first career start at the historic Knoxville Raceway located in the Sprint Car Capitol of the World, Knoxville, Iowa. He laid a lap down quick enough to hold on for 4th quick in ProSource Qualifying out of 35 strong competitors. Advancing through heat race competition straight into the AMain passing his way from 6th to 3rd Boespflug found himself once again in the feature invert. Boespflug and Crew Chief Davey Jones made the changes needed to keep the Mean Green 69 up front for all 30 laps. Starting and finishing 3rd Boespflug earned another USAC National podium finish in the series' first return to Knoxville Raceway since 2011.

"Another podium finish is just what this team needed. We have been in a slump as the results have shown over the past few races. Struggling to capitalized when it matters most, in the mains. Saturday's 3rd place finish at Knoxville was a great way to bounce back after finishing outside of the top 10 again at I-80 Friday. I look forward to hopefully traveling back to both I-80 and Knoxville with USAC next year. Now as we move forward into our "busy season" we need to regain that consistency as a team. We will race a few local races during Indiana Midget Week starting with Lincoln Park Speedway to work out any more kinks in our program before we travel east for 5 nights in Pennsylvania." - Chad Boespflug

Plainfield, IN - Eldora Speedway's #LetsRaceTwo weekend was less than favorable to Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner Team. Each night started off with a decent qualifying run timing 6th and 5th quick in ProSource Qualifying. Followed by advancement in heat race competition transferring into the AMain straight from the heats each night. However the tables turned when it came time for the AMain each night Boespflug and Crew Chief Davey Jones struggled to find the right setup and it showed on the racetrack. A 17th and 11th place finish was not what the team wanted to see as they came into the Eldora two day weekend failing to finish outside of the top 4 in USAC National competition. Although falling back in both feature events are not the results Boespflug or the HAR Team planned or hoped for they were still able to leave the weekend 2nd in overall Amsoil USAC National points.

The team will start fresh this weekend as they travel to two new tracks for Boespflug as the series heads just a few hours west for the #RivertownShowdown. The USAC double header will make its first stop just outside of St. Louis at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, IL. The teams will then travel south of St. Louis to I-55 Raceway to try their hand at the 1/3 mile high banked oval.

"We struggled all weekend as the track changed we chased it. Not the results I wanted at a track we had much success at early last season, but that's part of it. We were just off in the features each night and it showed in our results. With this weekend behind us we keep our head up and move forward. I am looking forward to traveling to Illinois and Missouri this weekend to two new tracks for me. I am thankful that the USAC National schedule this season has added more travel dates and new venues. Being able to travel and race in front of new crowds is what our series needs. The addition of PPV this weekend is huge as well as we know not everyone can travel when we leave Indiana so it gives those fans the opportunity to watch live thanks to SpeedShiftTV's partnership with USAC."- Chad Boespflug

Another USAC Podium for Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Team

Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner 69 Team traveled to northern Indiana for the Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car Series debut at Plymouth Speedway Friday. A track Boespflug has competed at only twice in his career, but does have a win to his credit at the 3/8 mile track. A rough technical track was an obstacle that everyone had to overcome throughout the night.

The surface was tricky and the racing grooves were unpredictable, but that made is quite exciting for the fans to watch especially during ProSource Qualifying. Boespflug laid down a lap that would earn him the 2nd position, out qualifying 25 others. A strong qualifying effort that was just a few tenths off fast qualifier Chase Stockon. The traditional USAC inversion placed Boespflug outside the third row of heat race #2. Boespflug used the entire race track to his advantage to pick off as many cars as he could before a late race restart in the heat. The restart allowed Boespflug to seal the deal and take the heat race lead from veteran Dave Darland and score the heat race win. The feature inversion saw Boespflug starting 5th in the 30 lap AMain. Boespflug settled in to 2nd early and began to track down race leader Justin Grant who had stretched his lead to over a straightaway before Boespflug made his way into 2nd. Boespflug gained on Grant as he struggled to get through lap traffic as the racing surface saw three wide racing action throughout the nonstop feature. He used that to his advantage as he reeled him in. Boespflug showed Grant a nose with 5 laps remaining, but then he was held up by a lap car and was forced to leave the bottom where he had gained most of his speed in turn one and two. Grant was able to pull away and hard charging Tyler Courtney passed Boespflug with 2 laps to go. Finishing 3rd Boespflug added another podium finish and tightened the Amsoil USAC points. Boespflug and the HAR Team has yet to finish outside of the top 4 in Amsoil USAC competition. 

"We had a bleeder issue that I think cost us a little, but still another strong night for us as a team. The hard work behind the scenes and the consistency at the track has us right where we need to be on the track to earning HAR another championship." -Chad Boespflug

Boespflug is now just one point behind Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car points leader Justin Grant. The series will be back in action Mother's Day Weekend for the Lets Race Two event at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, OH. Boespflug hopes to duplicate last years Lets Race Two appearance where he earned his first career Eldora Speedway Win when he returns to Amsoil USAC National competition May 12th & 13th.

Boespflug Earns First Bloomington Speedway Win while scoring Hoffman Auto Racing's 102nd USAC National Win

Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner 69 Team traveled to southern Indiana for two days of Amsoil USAC National racing. The famed red clay of Bloomington Speedway and the paperclip tight Tri-State Speedway played host to the best in non wing sprint car drivers in the country Friday and Saturday. Strong fields of over 30 cars entered both nights of competition.

The red clay of Bloomington Speedway has defeated Boespflug more often than not, so a mid pack qualifying lap of 13th quick was about standard for him. However on Friday that mid pack qualifying lap would earn him a front row starting position for the 30 lap AMain after transferring through Heat Race #1. On a typical night against the USAC National drivers 13th qualifying spot rarely earns your those honors, but Friday the odds were in favor of Boespflug. Starting second outside veteran Dave Darland Boespflug quickly took the lead and held it over Darland and Chris Windom through halfway. A restart on lap 22 saw the lead slip away from Boespflug and into the reigns of Windom. As the elbows went up inside the cockpit of the HAR 69 so did Boespflug's line on the track. He chose to run the high line as Windom settled in on the bottom. The hunt was on with 5 laps remaining in the AMain. Boespflug on the top and Windom on the bottom the duo raced side by side wheel to wheel. A similar sight from last falls Jim Hurtubise Classic at THAT except slide jobs was not the name of the game Friday instead the pair would race side by side in more of a drag race still coming within inches of each other, but never making contact. As the white flag fell Boespflug took the lead over Windom to gain that edge he needed to hold him off and earn his first Bloomington Career feature win and HAR their 102nd USAC National win.

"Wow, what a battle. Windom raced me clean and hard, but never raced me dirty, and I respect him for that. Being able to finally win a race here is pretty cool and to do it in the HAR Mean Green Cleaner 69 is even cooler. This place has eluded me for so long, heck almost ten years of racing in Indiana. To get a USAC win as my first here against this tough field of cars is pretty special." - Chad Boespflug

Following the win and celebration Boespflug and the HAR Team headed even further south to Tri-State Speedway, yet another track that has been less than a favorite for Boespflug. They traded in the red clay for the black tricky paperclip surrounded by cornfields in Haubstadt, IN. A better qualifying lap of 6th quick placed Boespflug in the 5th starting position in Heat Race #2 leaving him one spot outside of a transfer position as they threw the green. A great start for Boespflug and huge momentum made it possible for him to race his way into the 2nd position at the conclusion of lap 1. Boespflug tracked down heat race leader Chris Gentry, a Haubstadt local, before the checkered fell to pick up the heat win. Once again Boespflug found himself on the front row for the 30 lap AMain following the inversion. Boespflug grabbed the early race lead, but quickly found himself in what seemed like a deja vu battle with that orange #5 of Chris Windom once again. After being passed he continued to show Windom a nose lap and lap again, but it was just not enough to regain the lead as the duo that has recently been named the "Chad and Chris Show" by USAC swapped positions on the podium for night two in southern Indiana. Boespflug has yet to finish outside of the top 4 in Amsoil USAC National Competition and he kept that consistency going finished 2nd to Windom.

"Tonight it was Windom's turn, he and Derek have been fast lately, but to be even on the podium at Haubstadt is like a win for me as I have struggled here time and time again. Heck the whole podium has. I think this is a taste of what fans have to look forward to this year. Windom and I have had many close races, but it seems to be becoming a nightly thing. This year is going to be tough like I said before he and Derek have that thing figured out and are in the hunt every night." - Boespflug reflects after his second podium finish of the weekend.

Boespflug will follow the Amsoil USAC National tour as they head to northern Indiana this weekend with Plymouth Friday and Montpelier Saturday.

A Podium Finish for Boespflug at "The Burg"

Plainfield, IN - After struggling to find speed during numerous events at Lawrenceburg Speedway Chad Boespflug scored his first podium finish with the Amsoil USAC National Series at "The Burg" Saturday. A track where Boespflug holds a track championship has eluded him the past few seasons. The test session Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Team had just a few weeks ago was just what he and his team needed to gain the confidence and skills needed to earn a podium position. A field of 35 Amsoil USAC National cars was on hand Saturday to fight for 1 of 22 starting positions in the AMain.

Boespflug was 9th quick in ProSource Qualifying before advancing one position from 4th to 3rd in Heat Race #1 earning him a transfer position into the AMain. The field inverted the top 6 starting positions of the highest 6 qualifiers who transferred through a heat race. This placed Boespflug on the pole for the 30 lap AMain. The initial start saw Boespflug take the early race lead over Chris Windom before being stopped due to a red flag before completing a lap. The second start did not go as smoothly as the first and Windom won the drag race into turn one. Boespflug attempted the slide Windom multiple times throughout the race to regain the lead, but came up short finishing 2nd to Windom. Boespflug has not finished outside of the top 5 in Amsoil USAC National events in 2017 with two seconds and a fourth.

"I fought some throttle issues as the race went on, having to pickup the pedal, so naturally my focus shifted when I should have solely been concentrating on tracking down Windom I had other things to deal with. However this is the strongest I have ran at The Burg in a few years. I wish we would have finished one spot higher on the podium, but a 2nd place finish at a track I haven't had the best results at is still a strong finish for us as a team. Consistency is what we lacked last season and this year we are headed in the right direction with two seconds and a fourth in the first three races." - Chad Boespflug

Tentatively Boespflug will return to California Saturday to race the Cheney Racing #42 at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA in USAC/CRA competition, weather permitting.

Boespflug Ready for the Amsoil USAC National Midwest Opener at "The Burg"

Plainfield, IN - Coming off a busy weekend shortened by mother nature Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner Team are confident going into the Amsoil USAC National series Midwest Opener at Lawrenceburg Speedway Saturday. Boespflug and the HAR team took advantage of the open test day at "The Burg" this past Saturday morning before making their way to Brownstown Speedway for the No Way Out 40. The test session was designed for Boespflug to get more comfortable at the high banked 3/8 mile where he has struggled to find speed at in the past few seasons. He was able to hit the track for a few hot lap sessions as he and Crew Chief Davey Jones worked to tweak things on their Maxim Chassis' before the first of three stops the Amsoil USAC National Series makes at Lawrenceburg Speedway in 2017. The first of which is this Saturday April 1st.

Wrapping up their test session just before mid day the team loaded up and hit the road about an hour and a half north west to Brownstown, IN. A chance of rain lingered over the entire state of Indiana most of the day, but with an earlier start time for the No Way Out 40 the track attmepted to get the show in, and they almost did. A field of 31 cars filled the pit area at the first non wing sprint car race in the state of Indiana in 2017. Boespflug was off to a strong start before the rain came picking up a heat race win after starting third and then taking over the race lead after starting fourth before the rain came on lap 8 of the feature. Heavy rains forced the track to postpone the event following lap 8 of the feature despite their continued efforts to keep the show moving to "beat the rain", unfortunately a race that most often is won by the dreaded "r" word. The makeup feature is scheduled to be added to the MSCS event June 24th.  

As Boespflug and the HAR Team head south to Lawrenceburg Speedway, the "home" track of HAR and Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser, they feel they made strides during their most recent test session and are ready for the Amsoil USAC National Midwest Opener at The Burg.

"We were up and out before the sun was up last weekend to get a full day of testing and then racing in before we were cut short because of the rain. The team behind me is a bunch of hard workers that never complained about the early trip to test crammed in before a night of racing. We needed to test, I haven't been fast at The Burg since the sprint week show a few years back in the Hazen 57. The USAC National schedule goes to The Burg three times this year and those are three races we can not let slip away due to lack of speed as we chase the National Championship. We tried some things and I think the changes we made will be helpful this weekend. I am looking forward to starting the USAC Midwest season Saturday at The Burg especially in the HAR 69 as it is as close to a "home' track for the Hoffman's and Mean Green as we get. So a strong showing is what our goal is. Of course we want to win, but to come out of the gate strong with a good qualifying lap will set the tone for the whole night." - Chad Boespflug

From Coast to Coast Boespflug Broadens His Resume

Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug returned to Indiana early this morning after a weekend in California spent competing in the Amsoil USAC/CRA Season Opener at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, CA. Boespflug drove the Cheney Racing #42 to a top ten finish Saturday despite struggling with brake issue on the newly built car all night. The team addressed the brake issues each time the car came off the track, but they were unable to completely resolve the issue.

"It was the first time out for the new car so there were a few bugs to be worked out. We fought brakes all night so it was a bit sketchy getting into the corners, especially there where carrying a lot of speed into the corners is crucial to keep you momentum going. Cheney and the guys never gave up and kept thrashing all night to get me comfortable and the brake issue worked out. Unfortunately the issue lingered in the main. This trip was helpful to get the new car figured out and I look forward to going back west to race with Cheney in the near future." -Chad Boespflug

Home for a few days and then on the road again is becoming the new normal for Boespflug lately. Boespflug returned to his "day" job as a project manager early this morning not long after returning from California. Unlike most he juggles a full time job and a full time racing career. Long hours during the week as a project manager for an Indianapolis based company does not stop when he hits the road, the work continues for Boespflug just remotely. Thus allowing him to be able to do the travel needed to chase his racing career. This week will be deja vu for Boespflug except the destination is on the opposite side of the country. Friday evening Boespflug and Crew Chief Davey Jones will travel east to Central Pennsylvania where Boespflug will make his debut against the Pennsylvania Posse at Lincoln Speedway Saturday in Abbottstown, PA and Williams Grove Speedway Sunday in Mechanicsburg, PA. Boespflug will return to the Wayne Quackenbush Owned Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Trailers #91 Maxim chassis. Quackenbush and Boespflug teamed up at the end of 2016 for Boespflug to begin cutting his teeth in the wing sprint car world. Tentatively Boespflug and Quackenbush plan to compete in as many events as they can fit into the breaks in the Amsoil USAC National Schedule.

"At the end of last year I made my wing sprint car debut at the World Finals in Charlotte against the best competition in wing sprint car racing aside from the Knoxville Nationals. I had the opportunity to drive the Quackenbush Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Trailers #91 just once in a practice session before diving right in. World Finals was a huge learning curve for me, like most things you do for the first time are. It took a bit to get used to the different feels that you don't experience in a non wing sprint car, but by the end of World Finals I was a lot more comfortable. I am ready to get back into a wing car. As the saying goes "Go Big or Go Home" and I'm going to do just that again as I throw myself to the wolves of wing racing in Central Pennsylvania. The local competition will be tough, but once again I am going for laps and to gain experience as I venture out of my comfort zone. Racing in company with guys like Lance Dewease and Danny Dietrich who have thousands of laps in not just a wing car, but in PA is an honor. Those guys have defeated the Outlaws so racing against and watching them on their home turf I will be able to learn a lot and take that away from this experience. I can not thank the Wayne and David Quackenbush enough for taking the chance with me and giving me the opportunity to branch to the "Dark Side" as non wing fans call it. Hopefully mother nature is on our side this weekend and we are able to race Saturday at Lincoln and Sunday at The Grove." - Chad Boespflug opened up about his wing sprint car experience and upcoming debut against the Pennsylvania Posse.

Boespflug Headed West for the USAC/CRA Sokola Shootout at The P.A.S.

Plainfield, IN - After just a few days "home" in Indiana Chad Boespflug will pack his bags and head to the west coast this weekend to compete in the Amsoil USAC/CRA Opener at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, California. While the Amsoil USAC National Season waits for the weather to break in the Midwest Boespflug has the opportunity to fill the void racing from coast to coast.

Saturday March 4th Boespflug will climb back behind the wheel of the Dwight Cheney Racing #42 Maxim for the Sokola Shootout at The PAS. Boespflug and Cheney have some history together competing in select USAC/CRA events together in California in years past. The duo will pick back up where they left off Saturday. Boespflug had success at the end of 2016 in with his own car picking up the Oval Nationals Prelim night win at The P.A.S. This weekend will be a little different for Boespflug as he will return to just the driver instead of wearing the hat of driver/owner. Although not in the same equipment as his last visit to The P.A.S. Boespflug is confident in the cars Cheney has prepared for them to compete in this weekend.

"As I have said before any time I get the chance to return to my home state of California to race I usually jump on the opportunity. Our season in the Midwest doesn't start until the end of March beginning of April so to have the chance to race for Dwight Cheney during the USAC National season downtime is great. I am looking forward to working with Cheney again this weekend. Cheney has rebuilt over the winter and I am looking forward to coming out a bit early to help get things buttoned up with his new Maxim Chassis'. Hopefully we get a good run in this weekend and I can fit a few more races into the already busy schedule this year in California."

Winter Dirt Games a Success for Chad Boespflug and Hoffman Auto Racing

Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug made his Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car Season debut in the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser #69 at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL Friday. Heavy rain and wet conditions Wednesday and Thursday shortened the originally scheduled three day USAC Winter Dirt Games event eliminating an open practice night and night #1 of WDG. The extremely wet conditions that shortened the weekend would in return offer a better than normal track surface than years past. The typical "dry slick" or "rubbered up" track was traded for a heavy, fast, racey surface.

Boespflug hit the track Friday afternoon for the first time behind the wheel of the HAR #69 Maxim chassis in the first practice session of 2017. The track surface changed quickly from the first set of hot laps until the time for the first car to go out to qualify. An early qualifying spot landed Boespflug a lap that held the top spot for a while until the track became better in time. His qualifying lap was good enough to hold on to a top 5 position, qualifying 5th quick overall. Boespflug started 5th in his heat race and fell out of the transfer position early, but quickly regained momentum and charged back to a 4th place finish good enough for a transfer position into the AMain invert. Starting 3rd in the AMain Boespflug battled with Dave Darland and CJ Leary racing three wide during opening laps. Boespflug checked up as he and Leary nearly got together coming off of turn two early in the race allowing Justin Grant to sneak by. Boespflug quickly regained his momentum to chase down Darland and Grant. A late race restart gave Boespflug the chance to race wheel to wheel with leader Grant even swapping the the lead down the backstretch with just two laps to go. In the end Boespflug just did not have enough drive off the bottom to seal the deal and maintain the lead over Grant and finished a close second.

"A 2nd place finish right out of the gate is something for us to be proud of as a team. I just didn't have enough to pull Grant down the backstretch when I got a run on him off the bottom." - Chad Boespflug

Saturday Night Boespflug and the HAR Team fell behind the eight ball early with a mid pack qualifying run. In return that landed Boespflug a deep starting spot for the AMain after transferring out of his heat race. Although an 11th place starting position was less than desirable after starting 3rd the night before Boespflug used the changing track surface to his advantage. The top started to come in about halfway through the main. Boespflug made his way to the top where he passed his way into the 4th position chasing down the top three front runners just missing another podium finish.

"I should have gone to the top sooner and may have had a little more for Meseraull to make it two podium finishes in a row. Leaving here third in USAC National points with two top five finishes, including a podium finish is something to be proud of. We struggled down here last year so to leave here with this much success and the momentum going into the start of the USAC season in the midwest is a huge confidence builder for myself and the HAR Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser Team." - Boespflug reflects on the Winter Dirt Games.

Boespflug Set to Chase the 2017 Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car Title Aboard the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner #69

Plainfield, IN - Chad Boespflug and the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser Team have prepared the past few months for this moment. The moment when all of the pieces of the puzzle fit together nicely and is ready to be put on display. This week the team will head south chasing the warmth and sunshine to make their debut in Florida as they start the 2017 Amsoil USAC National Sprint Car Tour. The USAC National Tour is compiled of 47 races in 12 different states as they series travels from coast to coast.

To kick off 2017 the first stop for the seventh consecutive season is the Winter Dirt Games (WDG) at Bubba Raceway Park. Winter Dirt Games VII is a three day event on the 3/8 mile dirt oval located in Ocala, FL. This will mark the third consecutive WDG for Boespflug. The return to the famed Hoffman Auto Racing #69 has been much anticipated by Boespflug as he has only competed in a handful of events behind the wheel of the 69 in years past. As he straps in for the first time in 2017 as the full time driver the goals are a little different than they were when he filled the seat on those several occasions in the past. He, his Team, and Richard Hoffman all share the same common goal, to win races and secure the 2017 Amsoil USAC National Championship. Hoffman Auto Racing currently holds 11 USAC National Sprint Car Titles and 100 USAC Wins. Boespflug hopes to add to not only his 7 personal USAC National wins, but to continue on the Hoffman Auto Racing legacy and enhance their stats as a team this season.

"Consistency will be key all year. Last year was very successful for myself personally as well as my newly formed team, but we lacked the consistency. We meshed well all year and made huge strides by the end of 2016 and will take that momentum into this season. Although on the surface it appears like a big transition to the Hoffman Auto Racing 69 from my own NineEight Motorsports car, it won't be. The team of guys that contributed to the success of 2016 will just be wearing new team colors and representing Hoffman Auto Racing along with me.  Crew Chief Davey Jones, Bryan Stanfill, and Jason Keefer return for 2017 in addition to Tim Waechter of HAR. I am looking forward to not only representing HAR, but Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser as well. Their continued support and partnership with HAR is a big part of the continued success of HAR. In addition to Mean Green all of the continued supporting partners of HAR and myself have helped us build this team to what it is today. We want to win races and a championship for not only the HAR Team, but for all of our Partners as well. I'm excited to finally get back in the seat after the winter and start racing this week." - Chad Boespflug reflects on what is to come as he starts the year as the driver of the Hoffman Auto Racing Mean Green Cleaner & Degreaser #69.
