The “Battle of the Bluegrass” Ultimate Super Late Model Series makes its second visit of the 2016 season at Brownstown Speedway this Saturday night.
Seymour’s Jeremy Hines is the current series points leader coming into the event that pays $3,000 to win.
Hines is winless thus far with the BoB’s Series, but consistency has paid off, as he is leading the series by 49 points over Derek Fisher of Olympia, Kentucky.
Last weekend’s Paul Crockett Memorial saw Hines charge from his 19th starting position to finish eighth.
Jeremy was the 2012 and 2014 Super Late Model Track Champion at Brownstown and looks to capitalize on his home-track advantage this weekend and extend his BoB’s Series points lead.
Cody Mahoney, winner of last weekend’s Paul Crockett Memorial, is a winner with the BoB’s Series.
Mahoney emerged champion at the most recent race the series hosted at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky.
Mahoney is not expected to enter the event at Brownstown, as he is scheduled to compete at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin, for the “USA Nationals 100” in his Bowman Motorsports entry.
Seymour’s Adam Bowman is looking for his first win of the season at Brownstown after displaying promising results in his past few appearances at the track.
Bowman’s season-best at Brownstown came July 9 when he finished third.
His late-race charge in the “Born Free 40” from his 11th place starting position to finish fifth makes him an easy favorite to take home this weekend’s prize money.
Mahoney and Bowman are teammates from the Bowman Motorsports stable located in Seymour. The two-car team is owned by Bryan Bowman.
In the team’s short existence, they already have notched several wins, most notably their victory at Florence Speedway in the annual “Spring 50” event with Mahoney behind the wheel.
Also on schedule for this weekend’s event includes “P3 Graphix” Indiana Pro Late Models, “Woolston Automotive” Super Stocks, “Staff Management” Pure Stocks, and “Pewter Hall” Hornets.
