Plainfield, IN - Off to a quick start Chad Boespflug set quick time in group qualifying before finishing 2nd in heat race competition during the No Way out 40 at Brownstown Speedway Friday. Pulling off the race track after smoke came from under the hood Boespflug's night was cut short while running 6th in the NWO AMain. The oil filter o-ring pushed out causing quite the mess and potential motor damage. Following the cancellation of Saturday's USAC Event at Montpelier Boespflug made the decision to not race locally Saturday in order to ensure there were no underlying issues following the part failure Friday. The Claxton Engine has been pulled and is being serviced.
"I have faith that Jeff, Owner of Claxton Engines, will go through everything so we do not risk any further damage as we go into this stretch of consecutive USAC events. Since Claxton is located in Indiana that allows me to get motors to him quickly for a fast turn around of service. We will be back ready for two nights with USAC this weekend." - Chad Boespflug
Two nights of AMSOIL USAC National competition are slated for Boespflug and the NineEight Motorsports 98 this weekend. Both events will take place in Southern Indiana making the first stop at Bloomington Speedway Friday where Boespflug was victorious in the spring USAC race in 2017. The current Bloomington Speedway non wing sprint car track record holder looks to enter this weekend with the same speed he found early at Brownstown. This weekends USAC Double Header then travels to Haubstadt, IN for the first of three USAC appearances at Tri-State Speedway in 2018. Saturday will be a co-sanctioned USAC / MSCS event.
