PLAINFIELD, Ind. (Oct. 5, 2015) – With the Midwest Non-Wing Sprint Car Season coming to a close, only a few races remain. Most Indiana tracks have begun wrapping up their seasons, if not closing for the year. Thus travelling out of Indiana to compete with the Ohio-based Buckeye Sprint Car Series (BOSS) is one of the few options for competition this weekend. Eldora Speedway will host its Season Finale Sprintacular with the UNOH Allstar Sprints, NRA Sprints and BOSS Non-Wing Sprints.
Boespflug is pleased to announce he will reunite with legendary car owner Paul Hazen and once again climb aboard the Paul Hazen Racing 57 for this weekend’s BOSS portion of the Eldora Speedway Sprintacular. Boespflug was hired for this weekend as current Paul Hazen Racing driver Shane Cottle had a prior commitment to race in Syracuse, N.Y. The duo has found much success in years prior, picking up a combined 13 wins together, one of which is an AMSOIL USAC Sprint Car win. With Boespflug currently a “free agent”, driving the remainder of the 2015 season for multiple teams was never out of the question. The opportunity to race, whether it be in the same car or different, isn’t going to stop Boespflug from competing in as many races as he can to finish out the year.
“I am really looking forward to racing with Paul again,” said Boespflug. “We had a lot of success in the past and work well together. (I’m) thankful for the opportunity to race for him once again after parting ways to race more USAC races at the end of 2014. We have maintained a great relationship on and off the track, and I’m positive we will pick right back up where we left off.”
With the support of AMSOIL, Bell Helmets, BUDS Auto Sales, Butlerbuilt Seats, FK Indy, Hinchman Racewear, Kercher Engines, Midwest Shades, Physical Medical Consultants, Stida and Revvd Up Industries, the Paul Hazen Racing 57 will travel to Rossburg, Ohio, to compete in the BOSS Event at Eldora Speedway. The event is scheduled to roll off earlier than normal, with hot laps at 4:30 p.m. followed by racing at 6 p.m. Saturday.
