FREMONT, Ohio - Thomas Messeraul made history by becoming the only driver to win three events in a season with the Mo Vaughan Transport BOSS Sprint series at Fremont Speedway.  The Mike Hensel Memorial event was worth $5,000 for the San Jose, CA native.  The very appreciative driver of the Stan Courtad Racing machine stated, “Stan has spent $100,000 on race cars because I keep tearing them up.  But he keeps buying the equipment including seats and helmets.  He is like a Dad to me.”

Steve Rando led all 25 laps of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature.  Rando spent nearly the entire event on the treacherous cushion but mastered it to win his second event of the year in the Davis Fabricators, Westway Farms, North Coast Sealing sponsored ride.  Rando admitted, “The cushion is tough to run.  I had to ease going into the corner to hit the cushion right.”

Matt Foos took the Sorg Racing car sponsored by Fremont Fence and Automatic Fire Protection to victory lane in the Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks.  Ky Harper won his third straight McCullough Industries 602 Crate Late Model feature in the Tiffin Paint and Body, Tiffin Auto Mart, Harper Enterprises machine.

The 33 lap Hensel Memorial for the BOSS Sprints started with Kent Wolters and Cody Gardner sharing the front row.  Wolters jumped to the early lead but it only took three laps for Messeraul to crack the top three from his seventh place starting position  Meanwhile, 13th starting Shane Cottle was slicing through the field, and at a lap eight caution, Messeraul and Cottle were second and third behind Wolters.  Messeraul snatched the lead on the restart and Cottle moved into second one lap later.  Those two cars would be the class of the field and they put on a show working through lapped traffic.  The biggest moment of the race came on lap 26 when the lead pair split a lapped car on the front stretch, nearly ending in disaster.  In the final corner, Cottle dove to the middle of the track and appeared to have a run but Messeraul kept his momentum on the cushion to narrowly captured the win.  Tracy Hines ran the middle stages of the race in third but was pass by 11th starting Kody Swanson with four laps remaining.  Hines would hold the fourth spot over local winged racer Brian Smith who drove the event in a Mike Hensel tribute car.  Tracy Hines set quick time in qualifying over the 43 car field.  It was the first time BOSS used time trials to set race line-ups.  Dallas Hewitt picked up $333.33 as hard charger, courtesy of the Tammy Hughes.

Steve Rando’s led all 25 laps in the 305 Sprint main but was hounded nearly the entire race by Cody Gallogly.  While Rando stayed on the cushion, Gallogly ran the bottom and both cars ran nearly identical lap times.  Bobby Clark entered the fray on lap eight and passed Gallogly for second.  However, Gallogly would not wilt under the pressure and fought back around Clark while they both stayed glued to Rando.  Clark would get by again on lap 14 but Gallogly fought back around three laps later.  At a lap 20 caution, the running order was Rando, Gallogly, Clark, Dustin Stroup, and Paul Weaver.  Rando would win the five lap dash and Gallogly would fall back to fourth behind Clark and Stroup with Weaver completing the top five.

Corey Ward led the first ten laps of the Dirt Truck feature before succumbing to Cory McCaughey.  Matt Foos was mired mid-pack until finally reaching the top three on lap eight behind Ward and McCaughey.  Once McCaughey took the lead, it only took Foos two laps to pass Ward, and then McCaughey for the lead.  Foos then put it on cruise control to take the checkers over McCaughey, Dan Roepke, Ward, and Kent Brewer, who started 19th.

Ky Harper was dominant in the 602 Crate Late Model feature, passing early leader Matt Shipley on lap three.  Dustin Keegan passed Dale Cole the on the last lap to claim the second spot with Brandon Perkins and Tim Sabo rounding out the top five.
