Sterling Heights, MI (Monday, June 22, 2020) - In another all new episode of Horsepower Happenings, Zach Hiser and Rich Frantz call a pair of very familiar names in the motorsports industry - Brian Ruhlman and Andy Bozell. The pair have won countless races and are always a threat to win when they unload. This past weekend, each driver found themselves adding to their legacy with another milestone win. Plus, the show will feature special interviews with Rusty Schlenk and Tyler Carpenter.
A Clarklake, Michigan native Ruhlman is a well known driver in the Great Lakes region of racing, dating back to the 1990s where he began to make a name for himself in DIRTcar UMP Late Model competition. From there, Ruhlman has built a stable of race cars at his shop that include Late Models, DIRTcar UMP Modifieds and the more recently added non-wing Sprint Cars. Saturday night from Silver Bullet Speedway, Ruhlman went from his pole-starting position to victory lane for the first time in his career with the Great Lakes Traditional Sprints. Tonight, hear what it means to Ruhlman to add to his winning resume and what he looks forward to in the future.
Then another well established driver joins the show fresh off an impressive performance at Galesburg Speedway. Andy Bozell dominated the Smitty Memorial 100 on Sunday, lapping every car on the track minus his son Phil Bozell. The list of races and Championships won by Andy Bozell is long, so we'll dive into what has made his career so impressive.
Plus, Rich was on scene Saturday for the 31st running of the Barney Oldfield Memorial at Oakshade Raceway is Wassion, Ohio. West Virginia's Tyler Carpenter went to battle with Oakshade ringer Rusty Schlenk and came out on top. Rich caught up with both drivers post race to get their thoughts on the race.
