(Attica, OH)
In an effort to try and contain and control the cost of racing and keep the  competition equal and fair to all participants in the 305 sprint and dirt truck divisions, Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park have teamed up to implement a few rule changes for the 2008 season.

The rules for the 410 sprints at both Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway for 2008 will follow those established by the O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws. Farmer said the only major difference is a one-inch wicker bill will be allowed on the top wings.

This mark is cast onto the surface and must be visible to be legal. Do not disturb the stock combustion chamber.
