Image(Maumee, OH) A battle is about to be waged on Ohio soil, and one warrior will be crowned the 2009 Kistler Racing Products FAST Champion when the season winds down in September.  It has been nearly a year since the planning began to crown a combined 410 sprint car champion between Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park in the first ever “Fremont/Attica Sprint Title” or “FAST” as it has become known to Northern Ohio fans.  This weekend, those plans are put into motion as the quest for the inaugural Kistler Cup kicks off at Attica Raceway Park on Friday April 24th.  From there, the fierce competitors in the fire breathing 410 sprint division will head just 30 miles down the road to Fremont Speedway on Saturday April 25th.

With more than $50,000 in cash and prizes on the line, FAST has become the talk of Ohio sprint car racing in recent months.  With $10,000 in cash (plus prizes) to be paid out to the 2009 Champion, several drivers are gearing up for a season long battle to hoist the Kistler Cup and make Ohio sprint car history.  This Championship is paid on top of the two track championships for what could potentially be a pretty large payday for one driver who can finish consistently in the Top 5 at both tracks all season long.

Byron Reed has won several track championships at Fremont and Attica in recent years and enters the FAST points chase as the odds on favorite, but with big money on the line he will have his hands full.  So far this season, 65 drivers have competed in the 410 sprint division at Fremont and Attica combined.  A total of 29 of those drivers raced at the Fremont opener and also have at least one night of racing at Attica .  Only 3 of those 29 are regulars on the All Star tour, leaving 26 possible candidates for the FAST Championship title, with the possibility of more who may show up for the first time this weekend to go FAST .

Drivers expected to compete for the Kistler Cup are Chris Andrews, Mike Burkin, Rob Chaney, Cale Conley, Cole Duncan, Phil Gressman, David Harrison, Cap Henry, Lee Jacobs, Jody Keegan, Mark Keegan, Craig Keel, Kevin Lee, Mike Linder, Brandon Martin, Brock Mayes, Jamie Miller, Craig Mintz, Travis Philo, Byron Reed, Ben Rutan, Bryan Sebetto, Andy Shammo, Brian Smith, Dean Jacobs, and Duane Zablocki.

With the weather predicted to be in the low 80’s with abundant sunshine for this race weekend, the crowds are expected to be overflowing and the racing will be exceptional as always at these two top notch facilities.  We invite every race fan to go FAST this weekend at Attica and Fremont and cheer on your favorite driver to victory lane.  Visit,, and for more information
