(Attica, OH) Greg Wilson notched his third 410 sprint win of the season at Attica Raceway Park, while Bryan Sebetto took his 8th checkered in the 305 sprints, Wayne Maffett Jr. claimed his second win in the late models and Art ball picked up his fourth win in the dirt trucks on Kistler Engines Season Championship Night.

By virtue of his runner-up finish in the feature, Monclova's Byron Reed claimed his third straight and fourth overall track championship in the World Auto Parts of Huron & Cleveland 410 Sprints.

With a fourth place run in the 305 sprint feature, Milbury's Andy Shammo scored his second straight track title in the 305 sprints.

With a sixth place run in the feature, Gibsonburg's Ken Hahn edged five-time track champion Larry Kingseed by 7 points and Ryan Missler by 8 points to claim his first track title in the Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop Attica Late Models.

ImageTiffin's Art Ball came into the championship night 11 points back. With his feature win, combined with Cory Ward's 12th place finish, Ball scored his second straight track title by 14 points over Ward.

For Wilson, the win came aboard Veryl Warnimont's #M20 rather than his normal #W20 ride.

"This team has been struggling and we decided to race this car and help them sort it out. Butch (Schroeder, the driver of the M20) had a wedding he had to go to. And, we've climbed back in the title picture (for the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions) and we wanted to save that car for that run," said Wilson of his 17th career Attica victory aboard the All Star Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning backed car. "I have to thank the crew, Ken Fan and my Australian friend...they have never given up on this team. It's great to get a win on Kistler Engines Night....this engine has like 16 races on it...just goes to show ya that Paul Kistler builds one heck of a motor."

ImageFor Sebetto, the win was bitter sweet as it is his last night in the Josh Meggitt #01 as he will be racing a 410 sprint the rest of the season.

"To win eight races and not get the championship is hard to swallow. But hats off to Andy Shammo and that team...they didn't have any DNFs the entire year and we had a couple when we crashed while leading. I'm glad I could leave Josh with a win," said Sebetto beside his Gressman Powersports/ Frosty's Put-in-Bay Bar backed sprinter.

Maffett's win was #29 in his career at Attica, just one behind his late father for the all-time late model/street stock mark.

"I just like racing here...this place is awesome. The harder you drive the better you go," said Maffett beside his ReedY Racing Engines, Wright Choice Auto Sales backed late model.

For Ball, it was all about his team propelling him to his fourth win of the year and the track title.

"Keith Pierce and this entire team never gave up. Last week we had a good top three that would have given us the point lead and we lost a rearend. The guys went to work and here we are," said Ball beside his Mager's Lumber, Clouse Construction backed dirt truck.

ImageAt the drop of the green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Wilson bolted into the lead from his pole starting spot with Reed, Jamie Miller, Brandon Martin and Dean Jacobs in tow. Wilson would hold a comfortable lead as he flew around the top side, with Reed getting no challenge for second. Miller, Martin, Jacobs and Mike Linder would battle hard behind that duo. Action would slow for a Craig Mintz spin on lap 2 and wold be followed by a stoppage a lap later as Chad Blonde flipped, collecting Mark Keegan. Blonde would come back but Keegan was done for the night.

On each restart, Wilson would fly to a comfortable advantage with Reed still getting no challenge for second. Miller would continue to run in third when a Brock Mayes tip-over on lap 23 brought out the red. On the restart, Martin would surrender fourth to Linder who would grab third a lap later.

At the checkered it was Wilson, Reed, Linder, Jacobs and Martin rounding out the top five, with Blonde coming from the back to score sixth.

Sebetto would utilize his patented high line to grab the lead from his outside front row starting spot and wouldn't look back. However, the racing behind him was fantastic. Brad Haudenschild held the runner-up spot the first 2 laps before surrendering it to Brad Bowman. With five laps in the books the running order was Sebetto, Bowman, Dustin Dinan, Dustin Keegan and Shammo. Dinan would grab the second spot on lap 14 of the 25-lap affair, with Keegan moving into third by lap 16.

When the checkered flew for Sebetto, Dinan, Keegan, Shammo and Matt Lucius would round out the top five.

ImageIn the 20-lap late model main, Maffett grabed the lead from his pole starting spot, but couldn't shake Jim Fleming who hounded him the entire race. The real battle was for third through sixth with the positions seemingly changing every lap. At the halfway mark the running order was Maffett, Fleming, Bill Hahn, Ryan Missler, Larry Kingseed and Ken Hahn. Missler would move into third on lap 12, bringing Kingseed into fourth.

Maffett would go onto the win with Fleming, Missler, Kingseed and Bill Hahn rounding out the top five.

Rookie Zak Kramer grabbed the lead in the 15-lap dirt truck fature, with Paul Brown Jr., Ball, Bob Dible and Shawn Valenti in tow. Ball would power into the lead on lap three as Kramer spun. At the half-way mark the order was Ball, Brown, Dible, Valenti and Steve Endicott.

ImageWith five laps to go Ball had pulled away to a 7 truck length advantage with Dible in second, Brown, Brian Arnold and Endicott rounding out the top five.

At the checkered it was Ball over Dible, Arnold, Valenti and Brown.

Attica Raceway Park will wrap up the 2007 season on Saturday, September 1st as the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions make their fourth appearance of the season. The Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop Attica Late Models and dirt trucks are also in action.
