ImageThe fans of Attica Raceway Park have spoken and voted the duel between Brian Arnold & Art Ball on May 6th, which saw Arnold victorious as their favorite Dirt Truck moment of the 2011 race season!

That night saw Arnold drive to the lead at the drop of the green from his outside front row starting spot with fourth place starter Art Ball and Dwight Waltermeier in tow. Just as Arnold hit lapped traffic on lap four, the caution would fly for a multi-truck pile-up. On the restart, Ball would drive to Arnold ’s inside and the the pair would raced side-by-side for nearly the remainder of the race. Ultimately Arnold would out duel Ball for his only feature win of the season.

It is now time for you, the fans, to determine what was your favorite moment of the 2011 at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speed plant.

 The four divisional winners are now up against each other for the entire month of February for you to decide!
