ImageOver the off-season atticaracewaypark.com conducted several polls to help determine what was the greatest moment of the 2011 season at Attica Raceway Park.

 Each poll featured five events that stuck out in the minds of the Attica Staff from the past season for that particular division. The fans of "Ohio's Finest Racing" speed plant then had a month to vote to help determine what was the most exciting event for each division. Once each division had a winner we pitted them head-to-head and ultimately let the fans decide what was the greatest moment of 2011 at Attica Raceway Park.



The fans of Attica Raceway Park have spoken and have voted Caleb Griffith's checkers and wreckers feature win on August 5th as the greatest moment of the 2011 race season at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant. Griffith's dramatic feature win edged out Justin Chance's UMP DIRTcar Late Model win on July 8th in votes by just 57 votes.

When Paige Polyak and Caleb Griffith hit turn three for the final time, Griffith blasted to the inside and slid up beside Polyak, who drifted down. The pair banged wheels as they exited turn four and both tried to hold on and race to the checkers. Both went spinning across the start-finish line with Griffith winning by a nose. The exciting finish brought the fans at Attica Racewya Park to their feet that night and made for a rememberable first-career feature win for Griffith at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speed plant.
