(Attica, OH) Byron Reed inched closer to his fourth straight Attica Raceway Park track championship with his first 410 sprint win of the season at "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant on Friday, July 4 in front of a big crowd on Quality Welding Presents Fan Appreciation Night.

Fremont's Bobby Clark led all 25 laps for his fourth win of the year in the305 sprints.

Mansfield's Wayne Maffett Jr. tied his father, the late Wayne Maffett Sr. with his 30th win in the Service Drive Solutions UMP Attica Late Models.

Tiffin's Brian Arnold led all 15 laps for his first win of the season in the dirt trucks.

ImageReed assumed the lead on the ninth lap when Jamie Miller made contact with a lapped machine, giving him a flat tire. The Monclova, Ohio driver withstood a last lap challenge from Craig Mintz for his 22nd career Attica victory.

"I'm not a very good leader. I made some mistakes in lapped traffic, but Kurt, Ramey and my dad had the car so good, I could overcome those," said Reed beside his Reebar Die Casting, Pro Shocks, JEI Chassis backed sprinter.

Clark held off several late race challenges - including a restart with two laps remaining - from Duane Zablocki to score his 7th career 305 sprint feature.

"Hats off to my crew, this thing was easy to drive. I had to run through the mud on the bottom to cool my tires...I spun them pretty good and go them hot," said Clark beside his Fremont Fence, Al Davis Carpeting, Crown Battery backed sprint car. "I wasn't good in turns one and two and just had to hit my marks."

Maffett took the lead from Mike Marteney on the fourth lap and survived a late race altercation with a lapped machine while racing hard with Ryan Missler for the late model win.

"I got down in the mud and pushed up into the lapped car and he hit Missler...didn't mean for that to happen, but we were racing hard for the win," said Maffett beside his Wright Choice Auto Sales, Fultz Fabrications Estes Racing Engines backed late model. "This is a something I dreamed about my whole life. It took dad just five years to get 30 wins and it took me 20."

Arnold held off several challenges from Dave Brewer to score his fifth career dirt truck win at Attica Raceway Park.

"I just had to stay on the bottom and concentrate on driving my truck and not worry about anyone else," said Arnold beside his Make-A-Wish Foundation, Burns Electric, Air Cooled Engines backed truck.

At the drop of the green of the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, pole-sitter Jamie Miller bolted into a big lead with Caleb Griffith, Reed and Mintz in tow. Miller set a blistering pace and was into lapped traffic by the 7th circuit. Disaster struck Miller on the ninth lap. As he raced into heavy lapped traffic into turn one, he made contact with a car, flattening a tire and sending pitside.

Reed pulled away on the restart while Griffith and Mintz battled for the runner-up position. Mintz would take the second spot on lap 12 and ran the cushion in Reed's tire tracks. The action would grind to a halt for a hard Mark Keegan flip on lap 13. Keegan was okay but the car was done for the night.

Reed could not shake Mintz on the restart as they pulled away from Griffith. The yellow flew on lap 16 for a staled Brock Mayes who had moved from ninth to fourth. The running order was Reed, Mintz, Griffith, Lee Jacobs and David Harrison.

ImageReed would hit lapped traffic with just six laps remaining, allowing Mintz to close as both Jacobs and Harrison got around Griffith. At the checkered, Reed had just a two car length advantage over Mintz, with Jacobs, a rebounding Griffith and Harrison rounding out the top five.

In the 25-lap 305 sprint feature, Clark grabbed the early lead from his outside front row starting spot with Stuart Brubaker, Brad Haudenschild and Duane Zablocki in tow. The first yellow would fly on lap five with Clark leading over Brubaker, Zablocki, Haudenschild and Brad Keckler. During every yellow, Clark would dive to the bottom to cool his tires.

The racing resumed with Clark leading Brubaker who was trying to hold off a fast Zablocki when the caution would fly for fifth place running D.J. Foos on lap 14, also collecting Keckler. Clark now had Zablocki on his rear bumper.

ImageClark would fend off several challenges by Zablocki when the final caution flew on lap 23 for Foos. Clark got a great restart to take the win with Zablocki, Brubaker, Coty Runion and 16th starter Todd Heuerman rounding out the top five.

In the 20-lap late model main, Mike Marteney grabbed the initial lead with Maffett, Missler and Mike Stiltner in tow. Marteney would utilize the high line while Maffett ran the bottom Maffett would driver under Marteney for the lead on the fourth lap with the caution flying soon after.

On the restart Maffett was able to take advantage of the great battle for second between Marteney, Ryan Missler, Stiltner and Ken Hahn, to pull away slightly. Missler would move into second on the sixth lap and would race side by side with Maffett the next 13 laps. Disaster would strike Missler when Maffett went under a lapped machine, forcing it to move up exiting turn two right into the side of Missler, ending his run.

Maffett would hold off Hahn the final two circuits for the win, with Stiltner, Curtis Deisenroth and 16th starter Jeremy Canada rounding out the top five.

ImageIn the 15-lap dirt truck main, outside front row starter Arnold grabbed the initial lead with Dave Gibbs, Dave Brewer, Todd Keegan and Cory Ward in tow. Brewer would move into second a lap later and began to race to the outside of Arnold in a battle for the top spot. They would run that way all the way to the checkered, with Arnold taking the win, Brewer, Steve Endicott, Bob Dible and Art Ball rounding out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 11, for Underground Utilities Inc. Night. The $10 general admission gets fans in to see the wheel-hiking action of the Service Drive Solutions UMP Attica Late Models battling for $1,000 to win with the 305 sprints and dirt trucks also in action.
