(Attica, OH) They say lapped traffic can really hurt the leader of a race. However, it was THE LACK of lapped traffic that may have cost Mike Linder. He led for 29 and 7/8 laps at Attica Raceway Park Friday night. But it was Lee Jacobs who led the most important 1/8 of a lap...the last bit of straight-away to claim the 410 sprint feature on Burns Electric Mid-Season Championship Night.

Attica rules put lapped cars to the tail on yellow flags, so that the leaders can battle for the top spot, thus giving fans a thrilling show. And thrilling it was.

Linder had built up a substantial lead, but late race cautions would take away the advantage he had of having lapped machines between himself and his closest competitors.

Following a restart with three laps remaining, Jacobs drove to the high side to power around Paul McMahan and Linder in the final two turns and won the drag race to the checkered flag.

“I knew we had the car to beat on that yellow with seven laps to go. Then I screwed up on the restart and drove off the race track down thback stretch and lost a couple of positions,” said Jacobs beside his Stephen P. Mapus Productive Tool & Equipment sponsored, Burmeister owned #16.

Jacobs ran behind Linder, McMahan, Byron Reed and Caleb Griffith until the yellow fly on the 27th circuit for a Chris Andrews’ spin. On the restart, while Linder and McMahan went to the bottom of the track, Jacobs set sail up top, driving around Griffith and Reed into the third spot. As Linder was fighting to hold off McMahan, Jacobs drove hard into the cushion on the final two turns and flew up beside Linder and beat him the last 10 yards to the flags.

“When that yellow came out at the end, I knew if Mike and Paul went to the bottom I had a shot. I just concentrated and hit my marks and the car was awesome. Hats off to John Bores and his track prep crew...they have given us a racy track every week,” said Jacobs of his second career Attica victory.

Behind Jacobs at the finish was Linder, McMahan, Chad Blonde and Greg Wilson to round out the top five.

With severe weather hitting all around the race track, the program was put on the fast track. All track side victory lane interviews were cancelled.

When pole-sitter Cap Henry developed steering problems on the opening lap, it was outside front-row starter Bobby Clark who took the advantage. The Fremont driver led all 25 laps in his Fremont Fence, Al Davis Carpeting #40 to record his second victory of the season at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant. Stuart Brubaker would drive from his ninth starting spot to finish second with Brad Haudenschild, Todd Heuerman and Dan Hammond rounding out the top five.

It was Clark’s fifth career 305 sprint victory at the track.

In the Service Drive Solutions UMP Attica Late Models, Bellevue’s Ryan Missler would work his way up from his 12th starting spot to grab the lead on the 13th lap and held off a hard charge from Mike Marteney to claim his second win of the season at Attica and his eighth career victory. Missler’s eighth career ARP victory came aboard his Missler Industries, Hawk’s Auto Reconditioning, Taze DJ & Karaoke backed late model.

Rounding out the top five were Marteney, Jamie Reed, Nate Potts and Curtis Deisenroth.

The 15-lap dirt truck main was a barn-burner, with Art Ball, Brian Arnold and Cory Ward battling side by side throughout the race. Ward took the lead for good on lap 10 and would hold off Ball, Arnold, Bob Dible and Dan Henning for his second win of the year and seventh career victory at Attica.

Ward’s victory came aboard the TJ Hosang Construction, Excuses Lounge, Precision Body and Frame backed truck.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, June 13 for Quality Welding Night with the 410 sprints, 305 sprints, late models and dirt trucks in action.
