When the BOSS (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) rolls into
Central Indiana on Saturday Night, September 6th, it
will be one of the most anticipated shows of the Montpelier Motor
Speedway 2014 season. Indiana, a state known for its high
caliber open wheel drivers, will face off against Ohio's finest
BOSS series and Ohio sprint regulars. When the Montpelier Motor Speedway
looked to return Non-Wing Sprint Cars to the East Central Indiana
facility after a several year absence, it turned to none other
then the BOSS series due to their reputation of large quality
fields and programs along with outstanding open wheel racing.
The BOSS series averaged 31 cars per race during the 2013 campaign
hosting races throughout
Indiana, and Pennsylvania. The series hosted 12 events during
2013 where a staggering 11 different
winners found victory lane.
The BOSS series is a non-wing 410 Sprint Car series that competes in
true “Outlaw” style with the absence of tire rules allowing any
brand or compound of tire to compete along with a no entry fee
policy for competitors. The BOSS series, through sponsorship,
pays “heat race money” to the top finishers in each heat race and
also provides a number of contingency and cash awards to
competitors at the conclusion of each event. The Montpelier Motor
Speedway event will pay a healthy $1500 to Win and $300 to Start
along with tow money and the aforementioned contingency awards.
The Montpelier Motor
Speedway will feature its weekly regular racing classes including
the highly popular and competitive UMP Modifeds, Super Streets,
and Thunder Cars along with the budget FWD Compact class all
competing weekly. The Mod Lites will also compete at the
Montpelier Motor Speedway for a host of programs in 2014.
