(Attica, OH)
The two tracks sit just a little over 30 miles apart. Both have a loyal following of race teams and fans. Both tracks work together to ensure the teams and fans have an affordable, fun weekend of racing. Now, the promoters of Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway will put on their race suits and battle each other in two special match races.

Attica promoter John Bores, a weekly competitor in the track's UMP late model division, and his son, Mike Bores, also a late model driver, will battle Fremont promoters Rich Farmer and Andy James, both former race drivers, in the special match races. The Bores team will pilot late models, while Farmer and James will drive 305 sprints.

The first race will take place on Saturday, July 18, at Fremont Speedway when the Sunoco American Late Model Series competes along with the 305 sprints and dirt trucks. The challenge moves to Attica Raceway Park on Friday, July 31, when the 410 sprints, UMP Late Models and 305 sprints are in action.

"We got to joking around about it and John (Bores) said 'let's do it.' We felt the fans might have a lot of fun with this. We looked at the track records of both divisions at each track and they are pretty close. While the late models have more horse power, they are a lot heavier than the 305 sprint car...I think it will be pretty even," said Farmer.

"Of course John and Mikey have a big advantage as they race every week and Andy and I might get in the seat once a year if we're lucky....guess we'll see. Maybe next year Andy and I will get in the late models and John and Mikey will drive the sprint cars," joked Farmer.
