'Big Bad BOSS Master' Title
by Marcie L. Barlow
PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- Join us this Saturday as it is "history in the making" when Pittsburgh's Pennsylvania Motor Speedway hosts its first ever Wingless Sprint show. The BOSS (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) Wingless Sprint cars will battle in a 21-lap main event and the winner will get his name inscribed in the PPMS history book as "Big Bad BOSS" Master. The Super Late Models, Pro-Lates, Late Model Sportsman, Hobby Stocks and Young Guns will join the wingless warriors on the racing card Saturday as we present Big Bad BOSS Night.
"The fans in the Pittsburgh area have always enjoyed watching the Super Sprints at our speedway and we had several inquiries about presenting a wingless show during the off season so we are giving it a try this weekend. The BOSS Series features drivers from Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia such as Mark Cassella, Andre Layfield, Aaron Middaugh and Tony Beaber," stated Speedway Owner Matt Miley. "When you add our local talent such as Brent and Brandon Matus and Brandon Spithaler to the roster for Saturday; it is shaping up to be a super night of racing action."
This Saturday's on track action will also showcase the Late Model Sportsman competitors battling in their second Super Series event. Jake Simmons has six victories here at PPMS thus far in 2012 and is definitely one of the favorite's to claim the $700.00 top prize this weekend. Veterans Nick Kocuba, Pat Weldon and Wayne Carbo are also expected to be in action along with former E-Mod wheelman Vince Laboon, who has been quite impressive since joining the ranks of the full bodied racers.
Saturday's on track action may be "wingless" but the off-track action will feature plenty of "wings" as Gourmet Sauces of Pittsburgh has partnered with the Speedway to present "Two for One Dollar Wing Night". Race fans can enjoy the delicious PPMS Monster Wings with several varieties of Gourmet Sauces of Pittsburgh's wing sauce. In addition to going great with wings their sauces are also great on French fries, eggs and more!!
