(Attica, OH) With over half a million dollars in prize money up for grabs, the world's best dirt track drivers will sling the clay at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant - Attica Raceway Park - during its 23rd season of racing in 2010.

Besides the exciting weekly Friday night competition of 410 sprints, Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop UMP DIRTcar late models, Fremont Fence 305 sprints and the occasional door banging action of the Computer Man Inc. Dirt Trucks, ARP will play host to several "special" events in 2010 that will draw race teams from all over the world.

"Every week looks like a special event in 2010, bringing in most of the top touring groups. Then, when you throw in the second season of the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. (Fremont/Attica Sprint Title) Championship Series....the fans will certainly get their money's worth in 2010," said ARP Promoter John Bores.

The World of Outlaw Sprint Cars and World of Outlaw Late Models will once again try to tame the high banks of ARP.  The sprint cars will visit Attica for the Kistler Engines Classic on Friday, May 21, as they vie for $10,000 to win. The World of Outlaw Late Models will also vie for $10,000 on Ohio Cat Night, Friday, July 31, with the winged 410 sprints also competing that night for $3,000 to win.

The UMP wheel-hiking late models will also take center stage for the first-ever visit of the UMP Late Model Summer Nationals at ARP on UUI/Bazell Race Fuels Night, Friday, July 16. Also, the ALMS late models will tackle the clay on Friday, April 16.

The O'Reilly All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint Cars will compete four times at Attica Raceway Park in 2010. The All Stars will kick off their northern tour with the traditional Spring Nationals presented by HD Supply on Friday and Saturday, April 9 and 10. The April 9 event will pay the All Star winner $3,000 with the UMP late models also on the racing card. The 305 sprints join the All Stars on Saturday.

Attica Raceway Park will kick off the often replicated but never duplicated Ohio Sprint Speedweek featuring the All Stars on Friday, June 18 on Aaron's Sales and Lease Night.

The All Stars help ARP wrap up their season with the traditional Attica Ambush on Baumann Auto Group Night, Saturday, Sept. 4.


Other Special Events in 2010 at Attica Raceway Park Include:

• 305 Engine Builders Challenge, Friday, May 7 - an increased purse for the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints.

•  Burns Electric Mid-Season Championship Night - Friday, June 4 - double points for the 410 sprints, late models and 305 sprints.

• Kear's Speed Shop Fan Appreciation Night - $10 general admission for all four divisions of racing on Friday, July 2

• 11 races in the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Championship Series for the 410 sprints, and, for the first time, 5 races in the F.A.S.T. 305 Championship Series for the 305 sprints. Attica and Fremont Speedway will each host 11 F.A.S.T. 410 shows and 5 F.A.S.T. 305 shows in 2010 with points awarded for a separate point fund from that of both tracks.

"We are excited and thankful for all the sponsors that have come back again for the 2010 season along with some new business partners. Thanks to them and our loyal fans and teams, this coming season promises to be one of the best in the history of Attica," said Rex LeJeune, ARP Director of Operations.

It is also worth noting that on the special Saturday night events, Attica Raceway Park will open its gates at 4 p.m. with racing slated to get underway at 7 p.m.

The fun begins Friday, March 26 with Columbus Equipment Night - so let the countdown begin!
