Can someone explain the Boost stat?
The other stats are easy to understand, but the Boost stat still sorta confuses me on what it does and I'm not sure how to prioritize it.

I figure it does one of two things. Either:
1) How long boosts lasts. -or-
2) How much faster a boost pushes the vehicle

Could someone clear this up for me?

The higher the boost stat, the faster you go from boosts

Boost stat influences top speed while boosting.
It's the best stat for time trial except on the classic maps where boost pads are generally spread out and its hard to maintain a high level of boost for long periods of time.
In races it's good on Dream Valley, Adder's Lair, Carrier Zone and Galactic Parade. For the others I reckon it's outpaced by having a balance of other stats. That said, if you manage to pull away from the pack not much can beat you.

Funny thing, on boost races, my results seem improved when I sacrifice just a little boost to keep at 3 or 4 in Handling. Not crashing into every damn curve seems to help more than plain unmitigated speed (compared with most Console mods with 1 in Handling with full Speed/Boost)
