(Attica, OH) On a night when Attica Raceway Park honored the track champions from the past 19 years, it was 12-time titlist Mark Keegan who scored his 55th career victory on World Auto Parts of Huron & Cleveland Night.

Bryan Sebetto scored his 7th win of the season in the 305 sprints, while Ryan Missler tightened up the points battle in the Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop Attica Late Models by taking his third victory of 2007. Brian  Arnold used a last lap pass to pick up his second victory of the year in the dirt trucks.

Keegan benefited from cautions just as he was entering heavy lapped traffic, giving him a clear track to hold off point-leader Byron Reed for his first win of the season at "Ohio's Finest Racing" venue in the World Auto Parts of Huron & Cleveland 410 Sprints.

"I want to dedicate this win to Eric Phillips...this place was his dream 20 years ago and we (Mark and his brother Larry) to be a part of opening Attica Raceway Park back up," said Keegan of the former ARP promoter who passed away earlier in the week.

"Those cautions came at the right time. There were lapped cars racing pretty hard ahead of me and I didn't know what I was going to do. This car was so good tonight...I knew I would have to strew it up pretty good not to have a shot at winning," said Keegan beside his Midwest Transportation and Auto Sales, Jon Wright Custom Chrome Plating backed #X car.

ImageFremont's Bryan Sebetto used his patented high line in turns 3 and 4 to drive around early leader Stuart Brubaker and take the victory to move to within 37 points of Andy Shammo for the track title in the 305 sprints.

"I have to thank Josh Meggitt for understanding the situation I'm in. Rich Farmer allows me to drive his 410 sprint on Saturdays and Josh kept me in his car for the 305s here so I could have a shot at the points title," said Sebetto beside his Frosty's Put-In-Bay Bar, Gressman Powersports, Hot Shots Painting, Sandblasting and Powder-coating backed #01.

Bellevue's Ryan Missler drove to the high side of early leader Clint Coffman and went on to score his third win of the year in the Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop late models.

"To have a shot at the track championship I knew I had to win...that's all I can do. I want to thank my fiancee Amber, my dad and his business Missler Industries and Machine Shop, Taze DJ and Karaoke, McElwain Construction and all my sponsors," said Missler

Tiffin's Brian Arnold used a lapped machine as a pick to drive around race-long leader Bob Dible with just a lap left to score the dirt truck victory.

"I have to give all the credit to my crew...we changed everything on this thing tonight. I want to thank Bobby Davis for helping us get this thing hooked up," said Arnold beside his Burns Electric, Burns Iron & Metal, Make-A-Wish Foundation backed #33.

Keegan shot into the lead from his third starting spot at the start of the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Tony Beaber, Lee Jacobs, Paul Weaver and Troy Vaccaro in tow. The first yellow would fall on lap 6 just as Keegan was set to hit lapped traffic.

Keegan would pull away on the restart, with the battle for second a good one between Beaber, Jacobs, Weaber and 7th starter Byron Reed. Jacobs would move into second on lap 9, with Reed moving into third a lap later. Keegan hit traffic again by lap 12, allowing Jacobs and Reed to close. Reed would move into second on lap 16 and began to pressure Keegan just as the yellow would fly on lap 19.

On the restart Reed pulled under Keegan in turns 3 and 4, but Keegan kept his momentum up running high with the yellow once again flying each of the next two laps. Once racing resumed, Keegan pulled away from Reed who now had his hands full with Jacobs.

The final yellow would fly on lap 26, saving Reed who had driven off the high side of turn 2. Keegan would lead the final four laps with Reed, Jacobs, Weaver and rookie Chris Andrews rounding out the top five.

Stuart Brubaker would grab the early lead of the 25-lap 305 sprint feature with Brad Bowman, Duane Zablocki, Sebetto and Mark Whaley in tow. Whaley would bring out the first caution on lap 3 with the running order Brubaker, Bowman, Sebetto, Zablocki and Kevin Lee. Sebetto would move into second on lap 6 and would drive to the high side of Brubaker for the lead on lap 8. Cautions on lap 10 and lap 15 and 16 would slow the action, giving Sebetto a clean track.

Sebetto would fly to the checkers with Brubaker, Zablocki, Bowman and Lee rounding out the top five.

Ashland's Clint Coffman would grab the early lead in the 20-lap late model main with John Bores, Jim Fleming, Chuck Hummer and Ernie Haynes following. Fleming would move into the runner-up spot on lap 4 with back-to-back yellows slowing the action. Back under green, Coffman continued to hug the bottom groove for the lead with Fleming putting pressure on the high side.

Following a lap 9 caution, Fleming would drive off the high side of turn 2 to surrender second to Missler with point-leader Ken Hahn up to third from his 9th starting spot. Missler would drive around Coffman on lap 11 and would lead the remaining caution-free laps for the win with Hahn, Wayne Maffett Jr., Coffman and Fleming rounding out the top five.

Fostoria's Bob Dible would grab the lead at the drop of the green for the 15-lap truck feature with rookie Alex Weichman, Arnold, Cory Ward and Loren Schwochow in tow. Arnold would move into second on lap 7 and would use lapped traffic to make his winning move on lap 13. Dible, Art Ball, point-leader Ward and Endicott would round out the top five.
