(Attica, OH) It seems like – due to Mother Nature – summer just began. But fall is just around the corner and that means the yearly switch from Friday night racing to Saturday events for Attica Raceway Park.
With only four shows remaining in 2014, “Ohio’s Finest Racing Speedplant” still has plenty of fun and excitement left. It begins Saturday, Aug. 16 on WNWO NBC Toledo Channel 24/Culy Contracting Night with the 410 sprints going for $3,000 to win with the UMP Late Models, 305 sprints and dirt trucks also in action.
Kistler Racing Products will present the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night on Saturday, Aug. 23. Double points will be on the line in all four divisions with the 410 sprints gunning for $3,000 to win.
The point battles are close in all the divisions. Former track champion Chris Andrews holds a slim 16 point lead over Caleb Griffith in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 sprints. Brian Lay is third with Travis Philo and defending track champion Craig Mintz rounding out the top five.
Things are much tighter in the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model point standings. Jeff Babcock leads Ryan Markham by a scant five markers. Mike Bores, Devin Shiels and Matt Irey round out the top five.
Jordan Ryan’s consistent top five finishes has him atop the standings in the Foster Auto Body 305 Sprints with defending champion Nate Dussel just 69 points back. Steve Rando, John Ivy and Jason Keckler round out the top five.
In the Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks, early this season it looked to be a Shawn Valenti run-away. However, lately the rest of the pack has begun to close with Kyle Line just 78 points back. Matt Foos, former champion Art Ball and defending champion Dustin Keegan round out the top five.
ImageThe Attica Ambush will wrap up the track’s season on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 29 and 30. Detroit Chocolat Night on Friday will feature the Lucas Oil Late Model Series gunning for $10,000 to win while the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions will also be in competition for $3,000 to win.

ImageOn the Baumann Auto Group Night Saturday, the UNOH All Stars will battle for $5,000 to win with the late models in action for $1,500 to win as part of the Attica-Wayne County Late Model Challenge Series. The 305 sprints and dirt trucks will also be in competition Saturday.

Henry Holds On For Attica Aprint Win; Missler Earns 1st Late Model Victory, Weaver Survives For 305 Sprint Win; Foos Tames Trucks

By Brian Liskai

Image(Attica, OH) Cap Henry held off Greg Wilson for his second straight win in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints at Attica Raceway Park Friday on WNWO NBC 24/Culy Contracting Night. The Bellevue, Ohio driver had to not only fight Wilson for the win, but a car that lost its brakes the last hand full of laps.
“I really have to give a lot of credit to Wilson…he really could have done it (last lap slider) a lot worse and he raced us clean. He gets as much credit as we do. He could have made that real ugly and I couldn’t stop if I wanted to,” said Henry beside his Genzman Racing/Ludwig Propane/Level Performance/Crown Battery/Automatic Fire Protection/Jet Express/Handy Grafix/Kear’s Speed Shop backed machine.
“I can’t thank this Genzman team enough. They’ve been working so hard. It’s really making me look good now and I’m loving it. I made them look bad early and we’re making up for it now. The caution helped. I was hoping someone would do something because I really didn’t like negotiating the traffic,” added Henry who executed a great restart with 10 laps to go. “I’ve been working on my restarts and it helped tonight.”
In Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model feature, five time and defending track champion Ryan Missler finally slammed that gorilla off his back and held off Jeff Babcock for his first win of the season. The victory was the 11th of Missler’s career at Attica.
“My four-year-old daughter drew me a number one last week and I didn’t do so good. So she drew me a one this week and I figured I’d better do something with it,” said Missler beside his York Fabrication/Terry McConnell Excavating/Taze DJ Service/King Industrial Supply/Quality Welding/Cenpeco Lubricants/Keizer Wheels backed machine.
“I knew there wasn’t much to grab hold of coming off four on the bottom. So I figured I’d have the momentum if I didn’t screw up,” added Missler. “I have to thank everyone who helps me…Jerry Huff at York Fabrication, my Uncle Jim, my wife and daughters and my in-laws…everybody that helps. This is great. I’d like to put a little win streak going here,” added Missler of his Gordon Lumber/SCS Gearbox/NAPA of Attica/TNT Farms/Twin Lakes Golf Course/ Pizza House West/Bellevue Beverage Center sponsored #50Y.
The Foster Auto Body 305 Sprint feature was a dandy with Dean Jacobs leading the first 20 laps. But, as he raced into lapped traffic, he made contact with Paul Weaver as they battled for the lead with Jacobs sustaining front end damage. Weaver would hold off T.J. Michael the final four laps to secure his third victory of the season at Attica. The win is the 32nd of Weaver’s career in the 305 sprint division at the track.
“I thought he (Jacobs) had a bad deal coming off the corner so I just drove it in there. I thought I had him clear…I feel bad about that. I don’t want to run Dean like that…he’s a clean driver,” said Weaver beside his Hampshire Engines/Buckeye Mobile Coatings/Fostoria Mod Shop/Weaver Performance Karts and Parts/M&L Excavating/Sunny Farms Land Fill/Tender Touch Car Wash backed #1w.
“I want to thank Jamie Miller for helping me and Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice for putting the motor together and making it run good,” added Weaver.
After taking a wild ride in his 305 sprint, Matt Foos would recover to hold off Shawn Valenti and Kent Brewer in the Fremont Fence Dirt Truck feature to score his second win of the season at Attica.
“You have to be absolutely on your ‘A game’ with those guys. They have had their stuff together and I’ve been scratching my head all week and finally…here we are. The thing was a rocket. No flaw whatsoever,” said Foos beside his Fremont Fence/M&L Excavating/Level Performance/Pit Stop Convenience Stores/Automatic Fire Protection/Buckshot Farms backed #2.
