The night final night was a double points, $5,000 to win shootout that came down to a final lap restart. Matt Westfall’s Best Performance Motorsports car was leading the race when the final caution flag flew. Jackie Boggs of Grason, Ky was in the second spot and plotted his move on the restart. Boggs won the Dirt Week event at the Brushcreek Motorsports Complex and wanted to cap off the Mini-Series with another win. When the green flag came out, Westfall held off the hard charging second place car but a well timed slide job propelled Boggs past Westfall and into victory lane! Jackie Boggs picked up the $5,000 check with the victory! Matt Westfall was crowned the 2015 Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by Octane Race Products Champion.

7-24-15 Williamsburg, OH – The Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by Octane Race Products show that rained out on June 11th was made up this past week and it was a night full of exciting action with lots of cars. In the Late Model division it was Jackson,Ohio’s Jason Montgomery setting fast time and a NTR of 12.469 in his brand new Rocket Chassis machine. In the dash event for top six qualifiers it was Devin Gilpin of Columbus, Indiana taking the win over Jason Jamison with Wheelersburg,Ohio’s RJ Conley, Zach Dohm, Jackie Boggs, and Montgomery completing the running order and setting the first 3 rows of the feature event. In heat race #1 it was Devin Moran of Dresden, Ohio over Duane Chamberlain of Richmond,Indiana. In heat race #2 it was West Virginia’s Steve Lucas out front at the green flag but Edinburgh,Indiana’s Chad Stapleton would drive past him on lap #7 and go on to take the checkers. In the third and final heat race it was John Whitney from Clarksville,Ohi out to the lead at the green flag but Pleasant Plain’s Matt Westfall would get around Whitney and go on to take the win. The final preliminary event would see Chris Shannon win the B-main event and complete the starting lineup for the 30 lap feature event. At the drop of the green flag it was Gilpin to the lead but it was 3rd starting RJ Conley who would lead lap #1. Lap #3 would see Gilpin take the top spot but contact between Gilpin and Conley would allow Jackie Boggs to sneak by and take over the top spot. The Grayson,Ky driver would lead frm lap #4 through lap #13 when Jamison would get the top working and drive by and take over the lead. Gilpin quickly followed and it appeared as those two might get away but a mechanical failure on lap #22 would end Gilpin’s night and bring out the event’s first caution. On the restart it was Jamison out front but it was Conley and Moran who would put on a show by trading the 2nd position back and forth while Boggs sat in 4th spot. At the end it was Jamison taking the win with RJ Conley, Devin Moran,Jackie Boggs, and Matt Westfall completing the top five spots
