(Attica, OH) Late model fans will have back-to-back thrilling weekends of ground-pounding, wheel-hiking action at Attica Raceway Park.

First, on Friday, July 17, Underground Utilities and Bazell Race Fuels will present the Fultz Fabrications and Speed Shop UMP Late Models gunning for $1,500 to win ($200 to start) thanks to Ludwig Propane. The Fremont Fence 305 Sprints and dirt trucks are also in action for just $10 for general admission. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing heating up at 7:45 p.m.

Then on Friday, July 24, the best dirt late model drivers in the world will come to Attica as Construction Equipment and Supply Night showcases the World of Outlaw Late Models. Josh "Kid Rocket" Richards is looking to make it back-to-back wins at Attica while he will battle the likes of current World of Outlaws point leader Steve "The Kentucky Colonel" Francis, 2008 champion Darrell Lanigan, Rick Eckert and Shane Clanton for the $10,000 top prize.

It will be show-up points for the weekly Attica competitors on July 24. There is a $1,000 bonus to the feature winner if he is in the top 20 in Attica's weekly point standings through July 23. There's a $500 bonus to the highest feature finisher that is in the top 20 of Attica's weekly points. And, there's a $500 bonus to the highest feature finisher who is not a member of the World of Outlaws, not in the top 12 of World of Outlaws points and has never won a World of Outlaw Late Model feature.

Don't fret sprint car fans, not only will the best late model drivers be in competition, but "Ohio's Finest Racing" speedplant will also run the winged 410 sprints for $3,000 to win!

Gates will open on July 24 at 4 p.m. with racing underway at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are $30 for adults; $15 for teens 11-15; while kids 10 and under get in free. Pitpasses are $35.

PLEASE NOTE:  Scott Bloomquist regrets that he will not be able to race this coming Friday night at Attica Raceway Park due to being short on engines right now and a big swing coming up on his racing schedule as he fights for the Lucas Oil Series Championship.
