Image(Maumee, OH) The Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) Championship Series presented by Engine Pro & PAC Valve Springs continues to grow and increase the level of cash and prizes that will be awarded to the 410 sprint car teams of Northern Ohio.  The promoters of Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway have already stepped up in 2011 to add six $3000 to win FAST events that will increase the field to 22 cars and pay $250 to start.  FAST has just reached an agreement with both tracks to secure a $3000 cash bonus to any driver who is able to win the FAST title, the Attica track championship, and the Fremont track championship in 2011.  This feat would bring the FAST Champion’s cash total to $13,000 in addition to the cash payout from both track point funds.

“We had meetings over the winter with both track promoters and did a little brainstorming on how to make this FAST Series stand out more,” says Bryan Autullo of the FAST organization.  “I think that these $3000 to win shows are a great step toward what we would like to accomplish, especially with starting 22 cars in the A-main on those nights.  That is going to help a couple of guys out at the pay window who would have had to load up early and watch from the stands.”

The FAST Series was founded with the intention of helping the race teams who frequent these two Northern Ohio speed plants by injecting more money into their pockets through increased sponsorship and additional promotion.  Now in the third year of operation, FAST has been able to establish a program that works for the teams, the tracks, and the sponsors who support it.  Most importantly it has given local race fans something extra to call their own and follow all season long.

“The other thing we wanted to do,” Autullo continued, “is have the three organizations put up $1000 each toward securing a $3000 cash bonus to sweep the two track titles and the FAST Championship in 2011.”  Winning both track championships is no easy task with the level of weekly competition and the two tracks are entirely different.  In more than 20 years since Attica opened, this task has only been accomplished by Mark Keegan (who is now retired) and Byron Reed who will be defending his 2010 FAST Championship title.  “By pumping more money into the promotion of this Series it is going to help to attract more teams to this area and increase the entertainment value for the weekly fans," claims Autullo.

In addition to the influx of cash in 2011, the FAST organization has been working with series contingency sponsors to provide products and prizes for the 2011 year end awards banquet.  Nearly $12,000 worth of prizes will be awarded to the Top 10 finishers in FAST Series points in 2011.  This nearly triples the amount of prizes award in 2009 and 2010.
“We’re fortunate to have such great people working with is,” says Autullo.  “In addition to all of our cash sponsors, our contingency award sponsors have stepped up to the plate this season with all kinds of products that these teams can use.  They know who their core market is and want to give something back to the teams who buy their products all year long.”

The list of prize contributors includes All Pro Heads, Rod End Supply, R2C Filters, J&J Auto Racing, Weld Wheels, OC Shocks, KSE Steering, Hot Shot Engine Heaters, Hepfner Racing Products, TQ Fiberglass, Rocket Headers, Wings Unlimited, Kinsler Injections, PRO Shocks, Kinser Filters, DMI Race Components, Kears Speed Shop, Ti22 Performance, King Racing Products, Productive Tools & Equipment, Race Coveralls and more.

“I can’t thank these companies enough for what the do for FAST and for these teams,” said Autullo.  “We’re continuing in a positive direction with what we are doing and I think in the end it will be the fans that benefit the most from seeing a quality racing event week in and week out.”

The F.A.S.T. season kicks off on April 22nd at Attica Raceway Park and April 23rd at Fremont Speedway with both nights paying $3,000 to win. This year the FAST Championship series features a 20-race schedule.
