If you are a dirt sprint car fan or you like the rumble of late models, Attica Raceway Park will satisfy your need for speed in 2012.

"Ohio’s Finest Racing" venue has 21 exciting nights of racing action planned with some of the biggest names in sprint car and late model racing to pay a visit trying to collect the over half million dollars in prize money.

For the sprint car fans, besides the weekly winged O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints and Fremont Fence 305 Sprints, there are several big shows planned. The University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions will visit Attica four times in 2012, including the traditional HD Supply Spring Nationals on Friday and Saturday, April 6-7; to kick off the 30th Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Ohio Caterpillar Night, Friday, June 22; and to wrap up the track’s season with the Attica Ambush on Baumann Auto Group Night, Saturday, Sept. 1. The World of Outlaws will return to ARP for the Kistler Engines Classic on Friday, June 1 for the $10,000-to-win event.

Then throw in the 10 races in the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. (Fremont/Attica Sprint Title) Championship Series presented by Engine Pro with four of those events paying $3,000 to win and the Kistler Racing Products Mark Keegan Classic Championship Night on Saturday, Aug. 25 which will also pay $3,000 to win.

Besides the weekly Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model events, the national stars of racing will come to Attica for the Central Ohio Farmers/Summit Racing Equipment Night as part of the UMP Summer Nationals Hell Tour along with the UMP Modifieds on Friday, July 13. And a new twist has been added to Attica’s schedule as the late models roofs will come off for a night of topless late model action on Friday, May 4.
