Wilson, Shammo, Scott, Dible Get Early Christmas Present at Attica

By Brian Liskai

Image(Attica, OH) It was good to be running second late in the features at Attica Raceway Park Friday. The lead drivers experienced problems in the 410 feature, 305 feature and late model mains, as Greg Wilson, Andy Shammo and Randy Scott took the checkers in dramatic fashion. Bob Dible battled four other trucks before claiming his second victory in a row on Smith Family Frosted Foods' Christmas in July at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant.

Wilson, who opened up Attica's 20th season with a win back in March, bumped wheels with race-long leader Mile Linder exiting turn 2 with three laps remaining in the World Auto Parts of Huron/Cleveland 410 Sprint feature, sending Linder off  the back stretch and himself in victory lane.

"I hated that Mikey and I made contact. I got a good run under him and thought I had him cleared. There's no damn mirrors on these things...I couldn't see him. He was going for the win and I was going for the was just one of those racing deals," said Wilson beside his All Star Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning sponsored #W20. "We switched back to a Maxim recently and started going better. Veryl (Warnimont, the car owner) is on his boat and missed this...I can't wait to call him."

For the second time this season Fremont's Bryan Sebetto made contact with a spun car while leading a 305 sprint feature. Sebetto, who has six wins at Attica in 2007, hit a spun car with just two laps remaining, handing the lead to Millbury's Andy Shammo who cruised to his third win of the year at ARP. In fact, only one other driver - Mike Linder - has won a 305 sprint feature besides Sebetto and Shammo.

"They say it's better to be lucky than good. I don't know if I could have gotten around Bryan. I could race under him in one and two, but he's so darn fast in three and four," said Shammo beside his KS Sales & Service, Advanced Speciality Contractor, Lotycz & Sons Floor Covering backed #48.

ImageIn th Fultz Fabrications & Speedshop Late Model feature, it looked like Ryan Missler would claim his second win of the year, but during a late race yellow, his car would lose power. Mansfield's Randy Scott, making only his third appearance behind the wheel in 200, passed John Mayes Jr. with just two laps remaining to score his first career ARP victory.

"I thought I was into the front stretch wall when I passed for the lead...I didn't think this car was that small," said Scott Rod Eddleblut'e Garage/RTE Bingo backed #63. "This is just unbelieveable....this is only my third night out this year."

In the dirt truck feature, it was another barn-burner, with five trucks having a shot at the victory on the last lap. When the dirt settled, it was Fostoria's Bob Dible edging Art Ball for the second stright week for his third career ARP victory.

"I really needed that caution towards the end. I saw Art stick his nose under me...I knew I just had to stay up top and keep the hammer down," said Dible beside his Bob's Machine Shop/BMS Engines backed #17.

In the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Linder grabbed the early lead, driving around the big top cushion, with Brandon Martin, Mark Keegan, Brock Mayes and David Harrison in tow. Linder set a blistering pace, hitting lapped traffic by the 12th circuit. While Linder drive away in front, Martin and Keegan lurked behind. Meanwhile, 11th-starting Wilson steadily worked his way toward the front and was up to fourth by the half-way mark.

Martin would give up second when he jumped the big cushion in turn 4 on lap 21. The running order was know Linder, Wilson, Keegan, Harrison and Mayes. Wilson would try to drive under Linder the next five laps before trying the slide-job in turn 2 on lap 27 when his right rear made contact with Linder's left front, sending the later onto the back stretch horse track.

Wilson would claim the victory over Keegan, Harrison, Mayes and Gus Wasson.

ImageIn the 25-lap 305 sprint feature, Cody Runion would grab the initial lead with Chad Gullett, Shammo, Duane Zablocki and Scott Kraylek running close. When the first cautio flew on lap 7, the running order was Runion, Gullett, Shammo, 8th-starter Sebetto and Zablocki. Sebetto would move into third a lap later and take the runner-up position on lap 9.

Runion and Sebetto would race side by side the next four circuits before Kevin Lee made hard contact with the front stretch wall, sending him flipping. On the restart, Runion bobbled slightly exiting turn 2, allowing Sebetto to drive under for the lead. Shammo would move into second on lap 18 and put pressure on Sebetto the next five laps.

Brad Haudenschild spun exiting turn 4 on lap 23 as the leaders raced down the back stretch. Sebetto flew out of turn 4 and there sat Haudenschild. Sebetto made slight contact, but stopped on the track nonetheless, sending him to the tail and handing the lead to Shammo.

ImageShammo would hold off a charging Zablocki the next two laps for the win, with Runion, Gullett and 18th-starter Todd Heuerman rounding out the top five.

In the 20-lap late model main, John Mayes Jr. took the initial lead, with third-starting Missler grabbing it on lap 4. Missler would build a sizeable lead until disaster struck on lap 15. During a yellow to a separate incident in turn 4, Missler car lost power. That put Mayes back into the top spot, with 8th-starter Scott , Larry Kingseed and Mike Marteney in tow.

Mayes and Scott would race door to door the next three circuits before Scott would drive under Mayes for the win as the leaders took the white flag. At the checkers it was Scott, Marteney, Mayes, Kingseed and 11th-starter Ken

ImageDible would lead all 15 laps of the dirt truck main, but it wasn't easy, as Chuck Roelle, Shawn Valenti, Art Ball and Brian Arnold swaped the top spots each lap. At the checkers it was Dible over Ball by half a truck length, with Roelle, Valenti and Arnold rounding out the top five.
