FREMONT, Ohio - After a fantastic 2019 season that saw him claim a pair of championships, DJ Foos was struggling in 2020. But about a month ago he and the Burmeister Racing team started to gain momentum and it came to a head Saturday, Sept. 19 at Fremont Speedway as the Fremont, Ohio driver led all 30 laps to score his first win of the season on Pub 400 Night.

“Wrecks kept happening right in front of us and a million yellow flags and Cole (Macedo) is a gasser and I kept expecting a slider in one and two. I kept driving it in there harder and harder…I made so many mistakes there towards the end. There’s one thing I’ve learned this year…you can never take a win for granted. It feels so good to win,” said Foos in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

“These guys on this team don’t give up. The Burmeisters have been doing this for 60 years and there’s a reason for it. I’m so grateful to be sitting in this car and race every weekend. Mikey, LJ, Rollie, Sharon, Justin….everyone does so much for us like Paul Kistler, Doug Berryman and all our great sponsors,” added Foos beside his Crown Battery,Vantage Branding, Kistler Engines, CR Juices, Berryman Shocks, Burmeister Trophy, The Jet Express, Minor Customs, Napa of Bryan, KS Sales & Service, Keizer Wheels, Dave Story Equipment #35.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver is having one of the greatest seasons in his long history of racing and he added to his accomplishments Saturday in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. Weaver jumped into the lead at the drop of the green of the 25-lap feature from his outside front row starting spot and never looked back, claiming his sixth win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.” Weaver now has 13 total victories in 2020 including seven wins at Attica Raceway Park. Saturday’s triumph was the 57th of his career at Fremont and puts him seventh on the track’s all-time win list.

“Things are just going our way when it comes to pill draws. You keep putting me on the front row and it makes it hard to lose. I want to thank Pam and Steve Brown, Russ Adkins, definitely Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

In a caution filled – 10 yellow flags in 20 laps – Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature, Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti took charge on lap seven, survived numerous restarts and drove to his fourth win of the season. It was Valenti’s 59th career win at Fremont putting him fifth on the track’s all-time win list, only one win away from tying John Ivy and Mark Keegan for third.

“To be up there in wins with those guys is pretty amazing. I have to thank the Babocks. When we unloaded this thing we weren’t that good and actually had to have some parts brought in and change a leaf spring that went bad. A pretty amazing group of guys with John Brooks and Chris…they bust their butts on this thing too,” said Valenti of his Best Performance Motorsports; A Plus Auto Center; Craig Miller Trucking; KS Sales & Service; Gressman Powersports; Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.

Foos and Trey Jacobs brought the field to green for the 30-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Foos gaining the advantage over Cole Macedo, Jacobs, Stuart Brubaker, RJ Jacobs, Dean Jacobs and TJ Michael. A caution on lap five kept the field close as Brubaker had moved into third.

Following back-to-back cautions on lap eight and nine, Foos got tremendous restarts and pulled away from Macedo who had his hands full with ninth starter Nate Dussel with Brubaker and Dean Jacobs battling for fourth.

Foos entered heavy lapped traffic at the half-way point and Macedo and Dussel closed with Dean Jacobs taking fourth. With 10 laps to go Foos made a fantastic move in lapped traffic and began to pull away until Josh Turner tipped over right in front of the entertaining battle for second involving Macedo, Dussel and Dean Jacobs.

After another caution on the ensuing restart, Foos pulled away again when the green reappeared but a caution with six laps remaining gave Macedo and Dussel another shot. Foos was too good when the green fell and he drove away to his 16th career victory at Fremont with Dussel taking second on the white flag lap. Macedo, Dean Jacobs and Brian Smith rounded out the top five.

Brandon Moore and Weaver paced the field for the 25 lap 305 A-main with Weaver taking the initial lead over Moore, Jamie Miller, Alvin Roepke, Kyle Capodice and Mike Keegan. A caution after two laps were scored slowed Weaver’s march to the checkers and when the green reappeared he drove away while Miller took second with Roepke taking third on lap five.

Weaver encountered heavy lapped traffic by lap eight but Miller could not close. A caution with 12 laps in put Miller and Roepke right on Weaver’s tail but the veteran again pulled away until another caution on lap 14.

When the green came back out Weaver built his lead once again as Miller and Roepke exchanged the runner-up spot lap after lap with Seth Schneider moving into fourth.

No one was going to catch Weaver as he drove to the win over Roepke, Miller, Schneider and Moore.

In the crash-filled dirt truck A-main, Cory McCaughey grabbed the lead at the drop of the green and maintained the top spot the first six circuits. Valenti used a restart to take the lead on lap seven and despite numerous cautions, would build big leads. A caution with three laps to go wiped out a nearly six second lead for Valenti.

Valenti would not be denied driving to the victory over McCaughey, Jamie Miller, Dana Fry and Kent Brewer.

It will be all sprint cars Saturday, Sept. 26 at Fremont Speedway as the FAST winged 410 sprints come to down along with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprint cars and the 305 sprints.

FREMONT, Ohio – Nate Dussel was feeling upset about his racing fortunes as of late. Then a phone call with long time sponsor and family friend Bill Berrier Saturday morning put things into perspective. The Bradner, Ohio driver used lapped traffic to take the lead in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature on lap five and sliced through lapped traffic on a heavy Fremont Speedway Saturday, Sept. 12 to earn his second feature win of the season and the $5,000 payday on Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products Night.

“I had a pretty tough conversation with Bill Berrier this morning…you know his wife is going through hell right now. I was pretty pissy about how we’ve been running and last night and I thought grow up dude there’s people fighting way bigger fights than we’re fighting. This is for Bill and Cathy…hope it lifts their spirits a little bit,” said Dussel in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry, who earned the 2020 Attica Raceway Park track championship, wrapped up the 2020 All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group with his third place finish.

“Things kind of went our way there that last little bit at the end. We got lucky and started on the front row of the heat race and got through the heat race. It was hard to pass but we knew we were okay starting there in the feature and just had to run our race. I can’t say enough about Zack, Brett, Jim, Conner and all the girls behind this deal. Everyone puts in so much time and effort and this is really special,” said Henry of his Lane Racing machine.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver inherited the lead in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature with just three laps to go when Shawn Valenti pulled off the track. Weaver went on to score his fifth win of the season at Fremont – it’s his 12th overall in 2020 with seven wins at Attica – and it was his 56th career win at “The Track That Action Built” putting him seventh on the all-time win list. The victory also gave weaver the NAPA of Bryan AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales championship.

“I closed on him (Valenti)….I don’t know if there was something wrong…maybe he ran out of tear-offs. I was using a tear-off every other lap. This whole weekend everything went perfect…starting out front and getting heat race points…just everything went my way. Hate to see what’s going to happen tomorrow,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, Hampshire Racing Engines, Seagate Sandblasting, M&W Excavating backed #1W.

Austin Black, 18, from Clyde started racing go-karts when he was four-years-old. This year he decided to strap in a dirt truck and compete. The youngster looked like a seasoned veteran, leading all 20 laps and holding off former track champion Kent Brewer and Jim Holcomb for his first ever win in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. After an opening lap yellow, the feature went non-stop and Black not only was battling to maintain the lead but had to do so in heavy lapped traffic the last half of the race.

“I have to thank Tony Myers, my mom and dad and everyone that helps me out. When I saw Jim Holcomb coming I thought I’d better get going and next thing you know lapped traffic came and that’s all she wrote and I had to figure out what to do. This feels like a dream right now,” said Black beside his Ala Carte Café, Fireside U Pull It Auto, Quality Welding, Norman Family Collision, ABC Used Cars, Southridge Market, Big D’s Pizza, Lee’s Famous Recipe, The Mane Station, Jones Manufacturing, Redline Racing, Auxter Funeral Home backed #78.

Dussel and Duane Zablocki brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Zablocki grabbing the early lead over Dussel, Stuart Brubaker, DJ Foos, Caleb Griffith, Cap Henry and Trey Jacobs. The leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by the fifth circuit and Dussel used it to grab the lead.

Dussel began to pull away, slicing through lapped traffic like a surgeon with Brubaker taking second on lap 12 with Zablocki, Henry, TJ Michael, Dean Jacobs and Tim Shaffer in pursuit. The first race stoppage came on lap 20 when Caleb Griffith tumbled in turn two; he was okay. After allowing drivers to put on more helmet tear-offs, the race resumed with but only for a lap when something broke on Trey Jacobs’ mount. On the restart Dussel pulled away again with Henry, Michael, Foos and Dean Jacobs giving chase.

Dussel hit his marks perfectly the remaining eight laps and drove to the win over Brubaker, Henry, Michael and Foos.

“First half of that race I was probably one of the few who could maneuver. That last nine laps I couldn’t stop plowing and I thought man I’m going to give Stewie (Stuart Brubaker) this win. I would go through two tear-offs in one corner and I thought man that doesn’t add up for 30 laps…I’m going to be out of tear-offs. I fell in line here and there but took my chances when I had to,” said Dussel beside his Northwest Installation/Industrial Movers, Fausey Farms, Berrier Custom Fabrication, JRC Transportation, NuFarm, Al Davis Carpet and Laminate, Real Geese Decoys, Gressman Powersports, A Plus Auto Center, Box 7, Speedways Bar & Grille, DGGI, Wurtec, Swindell Speedlab backed #1.

Mike Keegan and Shawn Valenti brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with Valenti bolting into the lead over Keegan, Jamie Miller, Kasey Ziebold and Paul Weaver. After a lap was scored two cars got hooked together bringing out the caution. On the restart Valenti pulled away from Keegan, Miller, Ziebold and Weaver.

Keegan great run came to an end when he slipped over the cushion in turn two and made contact with the wall. On the restart Valenti again pulled away from Miller, Weaver, Ziebold, Zeth Sabo and Kyle Peters. Heavy lapped traffic came into play with seven laps to go with Valenti leading Miller and a closing Weaver. Weaver took second on lap 20 and three laps later Valenti slowed and pulled into the infield.

Out front, Weaver drove to the win over an impressive run for Sabo, Miller, Seth Schneider and Ziebold.

After an opening lap crash, the dirt truck feature went non-stop for 20 laps and was very entertaining. Pole-sitter Black grabbed the lead over Dustin Keegan, John Brooks, Jim Holcomb and Kent Brewer. Brooks took second on lap two with Holcomb taking the spot a lap later. From there it was a tremendous three truck battle the remaining 17 laps.

Black sliced his way through traffic while Holcomb and Brewer traded the runner-up spot just feet behind him every lap. Holcomb made several moves to Black’s inside while in lapped traffic but couldn’t get the pass.

As they raced to the white flag, Holcomb tried to get under Black and hit one of the infield tractor tires, putting Brewer into second. Coming to the checkers Brewer tried to race under Black but couldn’t get by as Black took the win by just feet over Brewer, Holcomb, Shawn Valenti and Jamie Miller.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 19 with the 410, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action. Then on Saturday, Sept. 26 it’s all sprint cars as the FAST series 410s come to town along with the Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series non-wing sprints with the 305 sprints on the racing card as well.

ATTICA, Ohio – A few weeks ago Craig Mintz was down on himself. He had crashed at Attica Raceway Park and decided to take some time away from racing to clear his mind and get refocused. It paid off Friday, Sept. 11 as the two-time Attica track champion took the lead with just six laps to go and survived a late race caution to score his first win of the season on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating/American Powersports presents the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night.

“We haven’t won in a couple of years and I can’t tell you the last time we won at Attica. We have been struggling. And it’s not my guys…it’s me mentally. Some nights I’m not here mentally. Tonight we had a pretty good night overall. It was fun racing with Travis (Philo) and Cale (Conley) at the end. My wife is probably mad because she wasn’t here but I love her and my son and daughter. I have to thank my dad and Rich and we threw a new guy on our team tonight…it’s amazing to be here. To be honest with you this is a 2017 GF1 (chassis) so George Fisher must have been up there looking out after us,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys, Eagle Ignition Leads, KS Sales & Service, Kistler Racing Engines, Elite Wings backed 09.

“There were nights I sat home on Fridays and Saturdays and barely could watch because I wanted to be here. But I knew for the best for the team was take some time off and go build another race car and have it set up the way we wanted and come back strong rather than keep banging your head against the wall,” added Mintz about his 15th career Attica 410 victory.

Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry racked up his first ever Attica Raceway Park track championship with his sixth place finish in a season that saw him win seven features at the track.

“My visor got so fogged up I couldn’t see those guys and I knew I should quit racing with Craig when I couldn’t find him. I just kind of backed up to make sure we could finish that thing. I can’t say enough about my team…it’s a team effort and I’m just proud of these guys. It’s incredible. We got really close last year and just couldn’t do it so to seal it off this year…it’s been a remarkable season. I haven’t won a championship in anything since I was a little kid in go-karts,” said Henry of his Lane Racing team.

Mansfield, Ohio’s Matt Irey came into championship night just 16 points behind Devin Shiels. All Irey could do was win and hope Shiels finished worst than third. Irey did his part but so did Shiels. Irey took the lead with five laps to go and drove to his second late model victory of the season at Attica and the fifth of his career. Shiels held on to finish third and claim his second track title by just two points.

“This thing has been a rocket ship all year. We broke a motor last week and we put the small motor in to come out tonight. I couldn’t do this without all my family and my wife…I got married two weeks ago. We did everything we could….just came up a little bit short,” said Irey beside his Mid-Ohio Graphics, Rod Eddleblute’s Garage, Robin Jakubick Realtor, Artisan Concrete, Flenner Water Well & Excavating, Kilgore & Harring CPA backed #36.

For Shiels, the pressure of having to finish in the top three to win the track title was pretty intense.

“I love double point nights…not. We blew the water pump off last week for our worst finish of the year. Luckily it wasn’t a point night,” said Shiels.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver put an exclamation point on his phenomenal year in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints, dominating the 25 lap feature for his seventh win of the year and 56th of his career in the division. It wrapped up his fourth track title in the last five years.

“I have to thank B&B Drains…Pam and Steve Brown came on board last year and Dave Rice and Bob Hampshire for helping get the motor going…that’s the most expensive part. Anyone can buy a race car but the motors are out priced basically,” said Weaver of his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

Travis Philo and Ricky Peterson brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Philo grabbing the lead over Peterson with Cale Conley, Mintz, Cap Henry and Tim Shaffer battling hard for third. Mintz drove into second on lap two and closed quickly on Philo.

While the battle for the lead was entertaining so was the race for third between Conley and Henry. At the half-way point the leaders were slicing and dicing through heavy lapped traffic and Conley capitalized, taking second from Mintz on lap 17 and closed on Philo. But Mintz regrouped and retook the runner-up spot on lap 20 and four laps later drove under Philo for the lead.

The only thing that slowed Mintz’ march to the checkers was a caution with two laps to go. Mintz got a fantastic restart and drove away to the win over Conley who took second on the restart, Philo, Shaffer and Chad Kemenah.

With his fifth place finish, Kemenah has tightened the point battle with Cap Henry in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group heading into the championship night Saturday at Fremont Speedway.

Nate Potts and Mike Bores brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model feature with Bores, who scored the win a week ago, taking the lead over Shiels, Larry Bellman, Potts, Ryan Missler and Irey.

Bores pulled away to a commanding lead while the action behind him was heating up. Shiels ran comfortably in second with Bellman and Irey locked in a torrid battle for third. The leaders raced into heavy lapped traffic by the 12 circuit with Bores lead beginning to evaporate as Shiels and Irey closed. Irey took second with nine laps remaining and closed to within half a car length of Bores.

The only caution flew with five laps to go and on the restart Irey drove around Bores for the lead. Bores continued to drive under Irey but could not make the winning pass as Irey took the checkers over Bores, Shiels, Missler and Gregg Haskell.

Weaver and Jim McGrath comprised the front row of the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main and when the green flew a multi-car incident brought out the red; there were no injuries. On the second attempt for green Weaver drove into the lead and pulled away while the action behind him was entertaining.

A caution with seven laps to go put Seth Schneider, Matt Foos and Jamie Miller right on Weaver’s rear bumper but the veteran was able to pull away once again. A final caution with four laps to go would not slow Weaver’s march to the win and championship. He pulled away for the victory as Miller, Schneider, Foos and Kody Brewer rounded out the top five.

ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry continued his dominance at Attica Raceway Park Saturday, lapping up to the fourth place car to earn his seventh 410 victory of the year and an extra $1,000 for sweeping the double-header weekend at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant on Foster’s Auto Body/Croghan Colonial Bank Night.

Henry, from Republic, Ohio, took the lead on lap 8 of the 30 lap affair and never looked back in the non-stop feature for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints. It was his 10th overall victory of 2020 and his 12 career win at Attica.

“With tonight not being a points night Zach (Meyers) and I kind of took a little bit of an effort to try some stuff we haven’t been able to….not really sure if it was better or not but we were good. It’s crazy to stand down here this much in a season. Zach and Jim and Brett and Tess and Dana and Patty and everyone involved…it takes a team effort to do this and I’m super grateful for what I have,” said Henry beside his Dragons Milk White, New Holland Spirits, Beer Barrel Bourbon, FK Rod Ends, Wings Unlimited, Kistler Engines, J&J Auto Racing, Linder Shocks, Simpson, Ballistic Designs, Big D’s Pizza, Lead Head Water Fowl, Geck Electric, Nemesis Designs backed #4

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver became the third leader of the 25 lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprints A-main on lap 20 and drove to his fourth feature win of the season at Attica. It was his 53rd career win in the division at the track.

“We struggled the last couple of weeks….we were a top five car. We just tightened it up a little more and going out second definitely helped as far as maneuvering around. You didn’t have to rely on the top which was fast with a clear track. I have to thank B&B Drain, Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice, M&L Excavating,” said Weaver.

Fostoria, Ohio’s Shawn Valenti held off several late race charges from Jim Holcomb to earn the dirt truck feature win. It was his 19th career win in the division at Attica as he sits atop the all-time victory list.

“I watched Jamie (Miller) in that 305 race and I thought man he’s going to do same thing in truck and be tough. A lot of guys want to count this truck out already but I think we’re going to be around awhile. I have to thank Adam Jones at A Plus Auto Center for the extra money tonight. He’s an awesome guy and a great backer on this truck,” said Valenti beside his Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking, KS Sales & Service, Gressman Powersports, Dave Story Equipment, Speedways Bar and Grill backed #7B.

“A couple of weeks ago I lost a dear friend who was a good fan. We lost him to cancer and I want to say this one is for you crazy Dave,” added Valenti.

Cale Conley and Henry brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 A-main with Conley bolting into a commanding lead over Henry, Mitch Harble, John Ivy, Travis Philo and Chad Kemenah. With two laps in a tremendous battle ensued for third involving Harble, Philo and Ivy with Philo taking the position a lap later.

Henry started steadily eating away at Conley’s lead and on lap eight threw a slider at him for the top spot in turns three and four. Philo grabbed second from Conley on lap 11 with Harble, Ivy, Stuart Brubaker and Kemenah in pursuit.

Henry was simply too good and drove away for the win with Philo, Conley, Ivy and Brubaker rounding out the top five.

Jamie Miller and Steve Rando comprised the front row of the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main and when the green flew Miller gained the advantage of Kyle Peters, Matt Foos, Rando, Mike Keegan and Weaver. Following a caution on lap two, Miller began to pull away while Foos moved into second.

Following a caution on lap four, Miller again got an excellent restart but could not shake Foos with Peters locked in a battle for third with Rando and Weaver. The race ground to a halt on lap eight for a Kody Brewer flip and after he walked back to the pits the racing action resumed with Miller leading Foos while Weaver charged from fourth to third.

By lap 14 Weaver began to close on Miller and Foos. Foos was able to wrestle the lead away on lap 17 with Weaver taking second two circuits later. With five laps to go Weaver drove into the lead but Foos and Miller were glued to his rear bumper.

Once in the lead Weaver pulled away the remaining four laps for the win over Foos, Miller, Keegan and Seth Schneider.

Things heated up quickly at the drop of the green for the 15 lap dirt truck feature with Dustin Keegan holding a slight advantage over Steve Sabo, Andy Keegan, Kyle Lagrou, Paul Brown Junior and Valenti. Following a caution after a lap was scored, Keegan and Sabo battled side by side for the lead while Valenti worked his way to fourth by lap three.

Sabo took the lead on lap four with Keegan and Valenti making it a three-wide affair with Valenti taking the lead on lap six. Valenti could not shake the field as Sabo and a charging Jim Holcomb stayed within striking distance.

A caution with four laps to go put Holcomb and Sabo right on Valenti’s deck lid but Valenti blasted the high line and drove to the victory over Holcomb, Sabo, Jamie Miller and Austin Black.

It’s season championship night with double points on the line for the 410 and 305 sprints and late models on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Friday, Aug. 28

ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry continued his dominance at Attica Raceway Park, driving to his sixth win of the year at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant in the 410 sprints on Central Ohio Farmers/Columbus Equipment /Adkins Group Night, Friday, Aug. 21.

For Henry it’s his 9th overall victory of 2020 and the 11th of his career at Attica. Henry has now won six of the 10 Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints A-mains at Attica this year.

The only close call Henry had was with two laps to go when he bottled slightly on the cushion in turns three and four.

“I kind of got out of my rhythm….I thought that thing was only like 25 laps long. I could have swore I took the white flag three or four times. I never got back into a good rhythm after that. I about owned these guys a huge apology. Zack (Meyers) has been getting this thing so fast. We made some last minute changes and he did the right ones. It’s a lot of fun driving something this fast,” said Henry beside his Dragon’s Milk White, Beer Barrel Bourbon, New Holland Spirits, FK Rod Ends, Wings Unlimited, Kistler Engines, J&J Auto Racing, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Simpson, Ballistic Designs, Big D’s Pizza, Lead Head Water Fowl, Geck Electric, Nemesis Designs backed #4.

Matt Miller and car owner Rick DeLong had to borrow an engine to compete but they made it pay off at Attica as Miller held off several challenges to win his second Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast Late Model feature of the year at the track. It was his 10th career victory at Attica.

“I didn’t know where to run to be honest. The track’s been a little different each time we’ve been here. I felt okay but not awesome. A big shout out to Matt Carmody. We blew up our motor a couple weeks ago. He owns Jon Henry’s car but he was nice enough to let us borrow a motor,” said Miller beside his Dominator Racing, Rocket Chassis, DeLong Racing #3.

The only thing that would slow down Jamie Miller was a mechanical issue and he nearly experienced just that. Miller, the defending Fremont Fence 305 track champion, nursed a six engine the final hand full of laps, edging Paul Weaver and Kyle Capodice to the checkers for his third win of the season at Attica. It was his 27th career win at the track as he sits second all-time behind Weaver.

“I had to take it easy that last lap. This thing was only running on seven cylinders with five to go and the temperature gauge was at 280,” said Miller beside his Reedtown Tavern, Fostoria Mod Shop, Sloopy’s Pizza, Smitty’s Pizza, Phil Rister Racing, York Carpet, Crown Battery, Schriner Farms backed #26.

Shawn Dancer and TJ Michael brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 A-main with Dancer taking the lead over Michael, Chad Kemenah, DJ Foos, Henry, Nate Dussel and Cole Macedo. A caution on lap two kept the field close and on the restart Henry vaulted from fourth to second. Another caution on lap four put Henry right on Dancer’s rear bumper and when the green flew the battle up front was on.

Dancer and Henry raced side by side for several laps before Henry was able to wrestle the lead away on lap 10 with Dancer, Kemenah, Michael, Dussel and Foos giving chase. At the half-way point Henry had built a three second lead over Dancer and increased it to nearly six seconds by lap 20.

Kemenah got around Dancer for second on lap 21 but the car on the move was eight time track champion Byron Reed who had stormed from 12th to fourth. Reed took third with four laps to go.

Henry caught the back of the field with about eight laps remaining and was content to ride behind them as Kemenah could only close to within 3.6 seconds. Henry bobbled once with two to go but kept his composure and took the win with Reed getting around Kemenah on the white flag lap to finish second. Kemenah, Foos and Dancer completed the top five.

In a caution-filled 25 lap late model feature, Miller immediately grabbed the lead from his pole starting position as two cautions prevented any laps to get scored. Four cautions within the first four laps kept the field close.

When the green flew after three circuits had been complete Miller and Ryan Markham battled hard for the lead with Mike Bores, Jeff Warnick, Devin Shiels giving chase. The final caution flew on lap 13 with Miller leading Markham, Bores Shiels, Matt Irey who had gone to the tail after an early race incident, Larry Bellman and Ryan Missler.

Bores drove into second on lap 15 and closed on Miller with Irey taking third from Markham who would go pit side on lap 19. Miller kept his car straight and smooth on the bottom and drove to the win over Bores who edged Irey, Shiels, who has yet to finish out of the top five in 2020 at Attica and Bellman rounding out the top five.

Matt Foos and Miller paced the field for the 25 lap 305 A-main and after an opening yellow, Miller quickly used the extreme high line to take the lead over Foos, Paul Weaver, Mike Keegan, Jimmy McGrath and Seth Schneider.

Miller quickly pulled away from the field as Foos, Weaver, Keegan and Schneider gave chase. A caution with seven laps in kept Miller within striking distance. But once the green flew so did Miller, once again pulling away while Foos and Weaver battled side by side lap after lap for second. The car on the move was 10th starter Kyle Capodice as he moved into fourth by lap 12.

Following a caution with 10 laps to go, Miller’s over-heating mount would not let him pull away as he had before. Weaver stayed within a car length while Foos and Capodice battled for third. The final caution flew with just six laps to go and Miller had his hands full on the restart with a closing Capodice and Weaver.

Coming to the checkers it was a three-wide drag race for the win with Miller holding off Weaver who edged Capodice for the runner-up spot, Foos and Schneider rounded out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 22 on Foster Auto Body/Croghan Colonial Bank Night featuring the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks. Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing under way at 7 p.m.

FREMONT, Ohio – In racing sometimes you need to go back to the basics and that’s what Cole Duncan and his 410 sprint team did at Fremont Speedway Saturday, Aug. 8 on O’Reilly Auto Parts Night. Duncan, who started 12th in the 30-lap A-main, didn’t qualify well, went backwards in his heat and the crew decided to make changes for the feature and it paid off as he threw a slide job on Zeb Wise in the last two corners on the last lap to score his second win of the year at “The Track That Action Built.”

Duncan moved the wing back with about seven laps to go and found something on the high side of turn two that no one else could make work.

“Sometimes that line bites you and I’ve been bit by it a couple of times. We were having such a piss poor night. Bad qualifying effort but still put ourselves in a decent position but a terrible heat race but these guys never gave up. We went back to our old school ways and what we know works here…damn that was fun,” said Duncan in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

“It was a delicate thing…if I show him my nose too early in three and four it’s over because he moves down and blocks that advance. I saw the white flag and I had one more shot. I wanted to sail it off in there hard enough to make sure I didn’t crash him…that’s not my style. I knew there was just a little bit of cushion left off turn four…just enough to catch you. I seen him cross back under me and it was just a drag race. Whatever we did back in the pits between the heat race and the feature we had just that much more traction and that was the race,” added Duncan beside his Ohio Heating; Helms Construction; Motorcity Auto Transport; Gressman Powersports; FK Indy; Wolf Composites backed #22.

Cap Henry also had a miserable night going but rallied to charge from 18th to a seventh place finish to maintain his point lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Chad Kemenah was poised to take the point lead, leading the first 10 laps before a flat right rear put him on the tail where he drove up to an 11th place finish to stay within striking distance of Henry.

Fletcher, Ohio’s Dallas Hewitt fought off several challenges from Matt Westfall to claim his second Fremont Speedway Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series win of the season.

“I heard engine noise but I didn’t know where to go. Under that last yellow I looked at the board and saw Matt was there. A couple of years ago it was me and him on the last lap and I was like here we go again, don’t mess up. I really don’t like to run the bottom but I made it work some how,” said Hewitt beside his Keen’s Auto Body Sales, Carts & Parts, Loan Star Pawn Shop backed machine..

Fremont’s Paul Weaver held off a late race charge from Kyle Capodice to score his fourth win of the season in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints. It was his 55th career win at Fremont Speedway moving him to seventh on the track’s all-time win list. He also has seven total wins in 2020 combined with the three he has recorded at Attica Raceway Park.

“That was one of the most fun races I’ve run in awhile. My tire started to go away there at the end,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Services, Hampshire Racing Engines, M & L Excavating backed #1W.

Cory McCaughey and Kent Brewer put on a driving clinic in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks, raced side by side throughout the 20 lap feature before McCaughey pulled away for his third win of the season.

“I appreciate Kent. That was really fun. Side by side…he’s better off of two and I’m better off four. I’m jacked right now. I lost a good friend of mine about a year ago….Steve…this one is for him,” said McCaughey beside his KC Engineering; Ron Miller Race Cars, DAS Motors backed #911.

Cole Macedo and Kemenah brought the field to green for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Kemenah gaining the advantage over Macedo, Nate Dussel, Duane Zablocki, Byron Reed, DJ Foos and Wise. Wise was on the move early, driving from 10th to third by lap five.

Kemenah held a slim advantage while Macedo and Wise battled hard for second until the leader experienced a flat tire on lap 10. Wise pulled away on the restart with Macedo now battling Foos for second with Dussel, Zablocki, Trey Jacobs and Duncan in pursuit.

A caution on lap 15 gave Duncan the opportunity he needed as he drove to the outside of turns one and two on the restart and into fifth. With 10 laps to go Wise held a 2.5 second lead over Macedo, Foos, Dussel and Duncan. Unfortunately for Macedo the car jumped out of gear on lap 22.

Wise continued to lead when the green reappeared with Duncan and Foos battling for second. With five laps to go Duncan began to close on Wise, setting up the last lap excitement. Behind Duncan at the checkers were Wise, Foos, Jacobs and Dussel.

In the 25 lap BOSS feature Luke Hall grabbed the early lead over Dustin Ingle, Hewitt, Westfall and Tyler Gunn. Gunn charged from eighth to third in just two laps. Hewitt drove into the lead on lap three and had to survive caution with just five laps to go as Westfall put a ton of pressure on him for the win.

Hewitt held off Westfall while 16th starter Isaac Chapple stormed to a third place finish with Gunn and Dustin Smith rounding out the top five.

Third starter Weaver grabbed the early lead of the 25 lap Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature with Dustin Stroup, Jamie Miller, Zeth Sabo and Alvin Roepke in pursuit. While Weaver built a sizeable lead, the battle for second was entertaining involving Stroup, Miller and Roepke. Roepke drove into second on lap 12 but made contact with an infield tire several laps later, ending his night.

At one point in the late stages of the feature, Weaver’s lead was nearly four seconds. But, the car on the move was 10th starter Kyle Capodice who wrestled second away from Miller on lap 17 and began chopping off Weaver’s lead and had it under half a second with give laps to go.

Weaver was able to negotiate through lapped cars and took the win over Capodice, Steve Rando, Sabo and Miller.

The 20-lap dirt truck race, following two crashes at the start, went non-stop the rest of the way. Brewer and McCaughey battled door to door throughout the 20 lap feature with McCaughey taking the win over Brewer, Ben Clapp, Dustin Keegan and Dana Fry.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 15 on American Powersports Night with the FAST 410 Sprint Cars, 305 sprints and dirt trucks in action.

ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry knew starting on the pole of the 410 sprint feature Friday, Aug. 7 at Attica Raceway Park he could not let his Lane Racing team down. The Republic, Ohio driver led all 30 laps and survived a late race caution to pick up his fifth win of the season at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant on Smith Family Foods/Kear’s Speed Shop/Ferguson Water Works Night.

Henry is having a dominant year at Attica, as he has won five of the nine features and now nine total for his career at the track.

Just as important, Henry will pad his point lead not only in the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints, but also in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Though his lead only grew by a few points as Chad Kemenah finished second and came into the night second in AFCS points.

“Zack (Meyers) had that thing pretty spot on. We could move where ever we had to. Zack and Jim and Brett have had this thing really good all year long and it makes driving this thing a lot of fun. At this point if we start up front and we don’t run up front it’s my fault. I’m so happy to be a part of this. This is tough. Chad’s fast, Cale’s fast, Travis is fast…we race with a lot of really fast guys. And to be able to put this thing up here every couple of weeks means a lot,” said Henry beside his Dragons Milk White, New Holland Spirits, Beer Barrel Bourbon, FK Rod Ends, Wings Unlimited, Kistler Engines, J&J Chassis, Linder Shocks, Simpson, Ballistic Designs, Big D’s Pizza, Lead Head Water Fowl, Geck Electric, Nemesis Designs #4.

Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels is making a great run at his second Attica Raceway Park championship in the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast Late Models. He led all 25 laps to score his third feature win of the season and ninth of his career at the track. After an opening lap multi-car crash, the race went non-stop.

“We’ve been fast on the bottom. Seems like the track is usually on the top for the heats and then down to the bottom because there’s still some moisture there after the sprint cars. I have to thank my dad, Denny, Braden and Dillon for being here tonight, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dirt Nerds Podcast and Magic Fountain Auto Wash,” Shiels said in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver threw a slider on Jamie Miller on the white flag lap to take the lead and held off a last lap rally from Miller to score his third Fremont Fence 305 Sprint win of the year at Attica. The victory is Weaver’s 52nd in the division at the track as he sits atop the all-time win list.

Weaver’s win will also tighten up the NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan AFCS 305 Sprints Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales point battle. Coming into the weekend Matt Foos held a 13 point lead over Miller and Weaver 39 points back. With Weaver’s win, Miller finishing second and Foos charging from 11th to a fourth place finish things will be interesting heading into the last few point races. Weaver will also maintain his slim Attica point lead over Miller and Seth Schneider.

“I thought you guys had it in for me…every time the yellow came on I went backwards,” joked Weaver.

“That second to last caution my tires were gone and that last caution I was like hug the tires and quit racing him and stay on the bottom and let him (Miller) worry about me. He spun the tires and I was just there,” added Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Weaver Performance backed #1W.

Henry and Kemenah brought the field to green for the 30 lap 410 sprint feature but a caution necessitated another start. On the second try a multi-car incident reshuffled the starting line-up. When the green came back out a third time Henry jumped into the lead over Kemenah, Shawn Dancer, Travis Philo, Caleb Griffith, Cale Conley and Zane DeVault.

By the 10th circuit Henry raced into heavy lapped traffic with Kemenah starting to close while Conley, Griffith, Philo, Dancer, DeVault and Nate Dussel gave chase. Henry negotiated perfectly through traffic and with 11 laps to go had put a pair of lapped cars between himself and Kemenah.

The caution flew on lap 25 in an incident involving Philo and Griffith who had been waging a tremendous battle for fourth. Henry executed a great restart and drove away to the win over Kemenah, Conley, DeVault and Michael who had originally started 20th.

After a caution to start the 25 lap late model feature, the rest of the race went non-stop. Shiels grabbed the lead at the drop of the green but Ryan Missler stayed within a car length the entire race until about five laps to go when Shiels pulled away.

While the top two drove away from the field, the action for third was fantastic involving Ryan Markham, Mike Bores and Larry Bellman. When the dust settled Shiels took the win over Miller, Bores, Bellman and Markham.

Schneider and Mike Keegan brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 A-main with Schneider taking the lead over Miller, Keegan, Kasey Jedrzejek and Weaver. The race was marred by several early cautions but after each Schneider and Miller battled each other tough with Miller taking the lead on lap six with Schneider regaining the top spot a lap later with Miller re-taking the lead on lap eight.

Meanwhile Weaver steadily inched closer to the lead duo and following a caution on lap 12, grabbed second from Schneider. Four laps later just as Weaver raced under Miller for the lead the caution flew. Two laps later and the same occurred.

Miller got an excellent restart with seven laps to go but Weaver again steadily inched his way closer. A caution with three laps to go gave Weaver the opportunity he needed. When the green flew he raced under Miller who fought off the challenges. Weaver threw a slider at Miller in turns three and four as they came to the white flag and took the lead. Miller attempted the same move coming to the checkers but Weaver held him off for the win. Schneider, Foos and Luke Griffith rounded out the top five.

There is no racing at Attica on Aug. 14 but a double-header weekend is planned for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 21-22.
