FREMONT, Oh. - DJ Foos thought coming into the weekend he needed at least a pair of top three finishes to gain some momentum going into Ohio Sprint Speedweek. He did much better than that.

The Fremont, Ohio driver led all 30 laps of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature Saturday at Fremont Speedway on Vision Quest Night to sweep the weekend for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Sprint Championship (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group. Like Friday's win at Attica Raceway Park, Saturday's victory was worth $4,000 thanks to Spanky's Pizza of Carey.

"This is pretty awesome. Back in the day in 305s me, my dad and brother were pretty good but we never swept a weekend. To do this with the Burmeister crew is pretty awesome. We want to dedicate the win to John Wisbon and his family. I know John drove for them a long time ago and hopefully I'm making him proud up there," Foos said of the late driver who was inducted into the Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame earlier in the afternoon.

Foos' 12th career Fremont victory wasn't easy though, as a bobble on the cushion in turns three and four with three laps to go nearly allowed Tim Shaffer to get by. "I kind of got off the back side there. The cushion was getting on the back side of the banking and I was trying to cheat it cause there was a nice little rut to follow through. On that last yellow I saw Shaffer was in third...I knew that wasn't going to last long so I knew I needed to step it up a bit. I had trouble getting around some last cars and I'm sure he made it exciting," Foos said.

"I love Fremont. This is where I grew up watching every weekend as a little kid. To come here now and win with an amazing crowd, great staff and great team...it doesn't get any better than this. Also congrats to Rich Farmer (former Fremont promoter) who got inducted into the hall of fame today. If it wasn't for him I'd have never been in a sprint car," said Foos beside his Jet Express/CR Juices/Crown Battery/Greer Automotive/Burmeister Trophy/KS Sales & Service/Kistler Engines/Kistler Racing Products/NAPA Auto Parts/Dave Story Equipment/Minor Customs backed machine.

Ivy, who celebrated his 50th birthday earlier in the week, battled with fellow veteran Alvin Roepke throughout the 25 non-stop laps of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature and drove to his 57th career win at "The Track That Action Built." Ivy, who owns 8 track championships at Fremont combined in the 305 sprints, 410 sprints and dirt trucks, now is one shy of tying Jim Linder for fourth on the track's all-time win list.

"You forget to breath some times when you get going and I screwed up a couple of times going into turn one there and thought I was going to give it away. I had to settle down. I grew up watching Jim Linder race and he does our shocks for us now. We stunk the place up last night at Attica but we put our heads together today at the shop and the boys worked their butts off today and made my job a whole lot easier," said Ivy in the Engine Pro Victory Lane of his L&R Farms/C&N Supply/Rohr Lawn care/Sonny's Welding & Machine/Welty Financial/Atkinson Farms/Story Equipment backed #77i.

Ivy has climbed his way back into contention for the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title with the $1,000 victory.

The 20 lap Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature was a barn-burner involving five drivers - Dustin Keegan, Brad Keckler, Jim Holcomb, John Brooks, Kent Brewer - and when the dust settled Keegan, Fremont's 2017 truck champion and 2018 late model champion, claimed his eighth career victory at the track.

"To race my teammate (Keckler) like that was just unreal. We started seventh and tried a little something and I guessed it worked. I love slick tracks like this. It's been two years since I won in the trucks. I want to thank my dad, my fiancée, Dabby, Denny, Brad, Noah, Gappy, Uncle Hoppy and everyone who helps out," said Keegan beside his LST Excavating/Kevin Walby/ Green Creek Lawn Care/MRE of Ohio/York Fabrication backed #17x.

Prior to the night's racing the 11th Fremont Speedway Hall of Fame induction ceremonies took place. Being enshrined in the hall were John Wisbon, Bruce Berryman, Dave Marko, Jerry "Dude" Creeger, Chuck Kear, Rich Farmer, Floyd Slater and Chuck Keegan.

In the 30-lap 410 A-main Brian Smith and Foos brought the field to green with Foos gaining the upper hand. Foos immediately began to pull away from Smith while a tremendous battle ensued for third involving Travis Philo, fast qualifier Justin Peck, Byron Reed, Shaffer, Stuart Brubaker, Craig Mintz and Nate Dussel.

Foos drove into heavy lapped traffic by the 10th circuit but Smith was unable to close while Philo, Peck and Shaffer continued their torrid battle for third. Shaffer would finally move into third on lap 14. The only caution of the race fell on lap 17 for a Ryan Broughton spin and on the restart Foos drove away from Smith who had his hands full with Shaffer. Shaffer drove into second on lap 19 but Foos held a commanding lead.

With a clear track Foos began to pull away as Shaffer and Smith gave chase. Meanwhile a great battle for fourth was underway involving Peck, Philo, Buddy Kofoid and Mintz. Foos encountered heavy lapped traffic with five laps to go and Shaffer began to close with Smith holding off Kofoid. Foos nearly lost the lead in turns three and four with three laps to go but maintained his composure and kept the lead to the checkers over Shaffer, Smith, Kofoid and Peck.

Paul Weaver and Roepke brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature with Roepke taking the lead as fourth starter Ivy bolted into second. Roepke and Ivy raced nose to tail and side by side over the first nine laps until lapped traffic came into play. That's when Ivy pounced and drove into the lead but Roepke didn't give up and raced under Ivy lap after lap.

In a feature that went green to checkers and completed in just over seven minutes, Ivy was never able to complete shake Roepke as they battled in traffic. Ivy didn't make a mistake though and took the checkers over Roepke, Weaver, Brandon Moore and Kyle Peters.

Keith Sorg and Brad Keckler paced the field for the 20 lap dirt truck feature with Keckler gaining a slight advantage over Sorg, Jim Holcomb, Jimmy McGrath Jr., Steve Endicott and Brad Mitten. Meanwhile Dustin Keegan began his march to the front and was third by lap five. The fist caution flew on lap eight with Keckler leading Holcomb, Keegan, McGrath, Kent Brewer, John Brooks and Endicott. Another caution for debris on lap 11 kept the field close.

On the ensuing restart Keckler held Holcomb at bay while Keegan, Brewer and Brooks battled for third. With six laps to go it was a tremendous three truck battle for the lead with Keckler holding off Holcomb and Keegan. That trio raced each other hard over the next couple of laps before Keegan utilized the bottom lane to take the lead with just four laps to go.

Keegan drove to the close win over Holcomb, brooks, Keckler and Brewer.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, June 15 on Fort Ball Pizza Palace Fan with a Can Night (fans are encouraged to bring canned, non-perishable food items for local food pantries. The Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (BOSS) non-wing sprints, 305 sprints and dirt trucks will be in action. Also the trucks will run their feature events that were cancelled due to weather on May 26.

FREMONT, Ohio - Michael "Buddy" Kofoid had only raced at Fremont Speedway twice, including Saturday, May 18. But, the 17-year-old Penngrove, California driver looked like a long-time veteran, handling a tricky track surface, passing for the lead late in the 410 sprint feature and holding off a challenger to score his first ever win at "The Track That Action Built" on Kistler Engines Night.

Kofoid, who looked to be heading for his first win in Ohio the previous night at Attica Raceway Park only to suffer a minor issue and finish third, tracked down race long leader Travis Philo with 10 laps to go to take the lead and then held off fast qualifier Justin Peck to score the $4,000 win thanks to Spanky's Pizza of Carey. Kofoid unofficially takes the lead in the point standings in All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.

"That was probably the most physically and mentally tough race I've ever run. I was so determined and I had so much adrenaline and it keeps you going in the seat. My hands are so cramped right now I can barely pull a tear off and pull myself out of my car. Yesterday at Attica we had a lot of speed and probably should have won but had some issues but having that much speed gave me a big momentum boost. I had to sack up and run the rough stuff. I felt like I knew I was making it work in three and four a car width higher than them and a couple of times I tried way to high and almost blew myself into the turn four wall. I figured it out right through the middle above those guys," said an exhausted Kofoid in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

"I can't thank Ed Neumeister enough for giving me an amazing opportunity for me to fulfill my dream and come out here and race full time. Of course the Linders for all their help and letting me live with them. Also thanks to Gill Construction, CK Plumbing, Linder's Speed Equipment, DMI, AL Driveline, ProShocks...without those guys I wouldn't be standing here," Kofoid added.

Former Fremont Speedway track champion Paul Weaver battled with Luke Griffith throughout the opening half of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature before grabbing the lead on lap 12 and holding off Jamie Miller for his 48th career victory at the track. Weaver is tied for seventh on the track's all-time win list. The victory puts Weaver in the running for the championship of the KS Sales and Service AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer sales.

"Running second wasn't bad...your focus was on getting into the lead and you really didn't think about the track. But once you got into the lead then it got really rough. I want to thank Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice for the motor on this deal, my nephew Daniel, Schiets Motorsports, B&B Drain...they just come on board, Russ Adkins come on this year to help out...I can't thank them enough," said Weaver.

While the stat sheet will show Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti led all 20 laps of the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Truck feature it wasn't easy as former track champion Kent Brewer challenged him the entire distance. But, Valenti was able to hold on for the win, his 48th career victory at the track to tie him with Weaver for seventh on the all-time win list. It was his second victory of the year at Fremont and third overall of 2019 in the truck division, having scored the win at Attica the previous week.

"The track was something else tonight but I know these guys are working on it to make it the best they can be and hopefully now we can get the bad weather behind us and get some racing in. The top looks like the smoothest but Kent stuck his nose down there so I had to go down there. I have to thank the Babcocks for everything they do for me, Craig Miller Trucking, Speedways Bar and Grill out of Bradner, Gressman Powersports, Best Performance Motorsports, A Plus Auto Center and everyone who helps out," said Valenti.

At the drop of the Silver Top Bar and Grill Green Flag for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint 30-lap A-main outside front row starter Travis Philo jumped into the lead but after a lap was completed a three car tangle involving Jac Haudenschild, Byron Reed and Trey Jacobs slowed the pace. On the restart Philo pulled away from Dale Blaney, Justin Peck, Joey Saldana, Nate Dussel and Kofoid. While Kofoid pulled away, Blaney and Peck battled hard for second with Peck taking the spot on lap six and quickly closed on Philo. That left Blaney to battle Saldana for third with Kofoid joining in on that fun by lap 10.

As Philo and Peck ran nose to tail, Saldana took third on lap 11 with Blaney and Kofoid continuing to apply pressure. The leaders raced into lapped traffic just before the half way point when Kofoid used the middle groove to take third from Saldana three laps latter. With 10 laps to go it was now a three car battle for the lead involving Philo, Kofoid and Peck. Kofoid once again used the middle line to grab the lead on lap 21, with Peck taking second a lap later. Peck tried lap after lap to get around Kofoid but to no avail.

Kofoid took the checkers half a car length over Peck with Philo, Saldana and Nate Dussel rounding out the top five.

In the 305 feature outside front row starter Luke Griffith grabbed the early lead over Jimmy McGrath, Weaver and Seth Schneider. Weaver quickly moved into second but Griffith started to pull away as Schneider took third and Jamie Miller and Tyler Street rounding out the top five. Weaver used lapped traffic to reel Griffith in and took the lead on lap 12 just as the caution flew for a Schneider spin. On the restart Miller drove around Griffith into second and stayed within striking distance of Weaver. The veteran Weaver worked his way through the lapped cars and drove to the win over Miller, Griffith, Street and John Ivy.

Valenti, who started outside the front row, quickly took the lead in the dirt truck feature over Keith Sorg, Brewer and Jim Holcomb. Brewer took second on a restart on lap four and hounded Valenti until a caution slowed the pace with four laps to go. In the shoot out Valenti was able to hold off both Brewer and Holcomb for the win with John Brooks and Sorg rounding out the top five.

Fremont Speedway has a big Memorial Day weekend double-header. It begins Saturday, May 25 as the FAST 410 Series invades along with the 305 sprints. General admission is only $10 for adults. The following night, Sunday, May 26, Tony Stewart's Ollie's Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Presented by Mobile 1 return to "The Track That Action Built" after a three year absence.

ATTICA, Ohio - It was patented Jac Haudenschild. The National Hall of Fame inductee from Wooster, Ohio, utilized Attica Raceway Park's extreme high line to pass Joey Saldana coming to the white flag of the 410 sprint feature Friday and went on to score his third career victory at the track on American Powersports/AmeriGas Night.

The victory was worth $4,000 for Haudenschild on an All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group point night.

Not to be outdone, the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models saw a tremendous battle between Wooster, Ohio's Doug Drown and McClure, Ohio's Rusty Schlenk - who ironically came into the night tied with 25 career Attica wins to sit atop the division all-time victory mark. The duo raced side by side, slicing through lapped traffic the final five laps with Drown prevailing for his second win of the year and the 26th of his career at Attica on an Attica/Wayne County Speedway Challenge Series point night.

To finish out the exciting night, Fremont, Ohio's John Ivy used the low groove to get around race-long leader Jimmy McGrath with just four laps to go to score his second Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature win and the $1,000 Gressman Powersports check. It was Ivy's 17th career 305 victory at Attica putting him seventh on the division's all-time victory list. It was also a valuable point night for Ivy in the chase for the KS Sales & Service AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.

Haudenschild grabbed the early lead of the Callie's Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main, battling early with Buddy Kofoid who took the point on lap six. Kofoid seemed to have things in hand as Craig Mintz and Saldana battled with Haudenschild. Kofoid suffered some sort of issue with eight laps to go, dropping to fourth as Saldana inherited the lead over Mintz and Haudenschild right before the caution flew. Saldana, Mintz and Haudenschild battled for the lead with "The Wild Child" driving into second with four laps to go and blasted around Saldana exiting turn four coming to the white flag and driving to the close win.

"Joey and Craig and Buddy got me pretty good there at the start...I was searching around a little bit because when you start on the front row I didn't really know where to run for sure. I had to get up on the cushion and go there at the end. Zach (Ames) had the car pretty good. We are a little loose in the heat but Zach worked on it and had the car really good any where on the track," said Haudenschild beside his Finzer Farms/Ron Jacobs Trucking/Performance Foot & Ankle/Triple X Racing backed #3.

Pole sitter Mike Bores jumped to the early lead of the 25 lap late model feature but faced constant pressure from Devin Shiels. Meanwhile eighth starter Drown worked his way to third by lap seven and after a great few lap battle with Shiels moved into second and drove around Bores on lap 13 to take the lead. Meanwhile Schlenk, who started 11th, worked his way into third with nine laps remaining and took second from Bores a lap later. When the five to go signal was given Drown and Schlenk were mired in heavy lapped traffic as the pair raced door to door trying to maneuver around lapped cars. As they crossed the white flag they were side by side with lapped cars all around. Drown would hold off Schlenk for the win.

"That's what everybody wants to see...Rusty and myself battling like it's been for many many times here. That's why I wasn't getting off the top. I knew if anyone was going to run up there and be able to peddle the car he would be the one. The lapped cars were kind of my blockers. I have to thank Ely Road Reel, BAR Farms, 89 Homes, Wooster Blass, Chubb Frank Racing for giving us this machine, Cody for building the car and working on it every week, my wife for her support, my dad, my uncle, Steve or tire guy and Hoosier Racing Tire, AccuForce and everyone who helps out on this car," Drown said.

McGrath led the first 21 of the 25 lap 305 feature while seventh starter Ivy steadily moved his way tot he front, taking second on lap 10. A red for last week's winner Kyle Capodice who tipped over with eight laps to go put Ivy right on McGrath's rear bumper. McGrath got a great restart and looked like he might be on his way to his first career sprint win, but the veteran Ivy methodically ate away at the lead and drove off the bottom of turn four on lap 22 to take the lead and drove to the win.

"I'm glad we had that red flag there...I was sucking wind pretty bad," said Ivy who also drove in the 410 sprint feature. "This thing wouldn't take off real good on the restart. I just tried to bide my time and settle down and make sure I made my right move. I have to thank all my guys. I made it hard on them tonight going back and forth to the 410 car and they do it all the time for me," said Ivy beside his L&R Farms/C&N Supply/Rohr Lawncare/Sonny's Welding & Machine/Welty Financial Services/Atkinson Farms/Story Equipment backed #77i

Haudenschild and Kofoid brought the field to green for the 25 lap 410 sprint feature but before a lap could be completed Caleb Griffith stopped necessitating a complete restart. When the green flew again Haudenschild gained the advantage over Kofoid, Chris Andrews, Ivy, Mintz, Saldana, Tony Stewart and DJ Foos. Kofoid continued to pressure Haudenschild while Mintz drove into third. Kofoid took the lead on lap six with a slider in turn one. Kofoid began to pull away slightly as Haudenschild had his hands full with Mintz, Saldana, Andrews, Ivy, Stewart and Greg Wilson who had charged from 18th.

Kofoid encountered lapped traffic by lap 11 with Haudenschild, Mintz and Saldana battling for second with Mintz taking the spot on lap 14. Saldana slipped by Haudenschild for third on lap 17 as heavy lapped traffic appeared. With 10 laps to go Kofoid was still in command while Saldana got around Mintz for second. Something appeared to happen to Kofoid in turn four with eight laps to go as he slowed dramatically, handing the lead to Saldana as Mintz and Haudenschild also got around the California driver.

Other than the initial start, the feature's only caution flew for a Skylar Gee spin with seven laps to go. On the restart Mintz pressured Saldana with Haudenschild joining the fun a lap later. Haudenschild drove around Mintz on lap 26 and quickly close don Saldana. Haudenschild rocked off the high side of turn four coming to the white flag and went on to take the win over Saldana, Kofoid, Mintz and Andrews.

"We had a really really good car. I had a terrible start and fell back and I just kept with it and kept with it. The top wasn't cleaned off early and right there at the end I saw the top cleaned and I was like 'oh shit Haud.' If anyone's going to try it he's going to and look, it paid off and he won. If they don't have the yellow I think we win the race. We had a car good enough because we could move through traffic really really good and they couldn't get through traffic as good as me. At the end...that's called experience..Haud knows what to do. You only have one shot and it worked and I lost," said Saldana.

Bores and Shiels brought the field to green for the 25 lap late model feature with Bores, who already has a win this season, holding off Shiels for the lead with Larry Bellman, Matt Irey and Drown locked in a torrid battle for third.A quick caution on lap four saw the running order Bores, Shiels, Irey, Drown, Bellman, last week's winner Ryan Missler, Steve Kester and Schlenk.Bores began to pull away when the green came back out while Shiels was trying to fend off Drown and Irey. Drown took the runner-up position on lap 10 and quickly closed on Bores.

Bores was glued to the bottom and Drown used the high line to take the lead on lap 13 but Bores and Shiels didn't give up, challenging over the next couple of laps. Meanwhile Schlenk had moved into fourth. With nine laps to go it was a great four car battle up front with Drown leading Bores, Shiels and Schlenk. With five laps to go a lapped car held up Drown and Schlenk took the lead but a circuit later Drown regained the top spot. Drown and Schlenk raced side by side in traffic the remaining four laps with Drown getting the narrow win over Schlenk, Shiels, Bores and Missler.

McGrath and Shawn Valenti brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint A-main with McGrath getting the top spot over Valenti, Matt Lucius, Dustin Rall, Tyler Street, Ivy and Luke Griffith. McGrath and Valenti raced side by side over the next hand full of laps before McGrath started to pull away. Meanwhile Lucius, Rall, Street and Ivy were battling hard for third when the caution flew on lap nine. On the restart Ivy took second and started to close on McGrath.

Last week's winner Kyle Capodice and Rall tangled with eight laps to go. When the green flew McGrath got an excellent restart and pulled away slightly from Ivy with Valenti, Street, Bobby Clark, Lucius, Paul Weaver, Griffith and Jamie Miller giving chase. McGrath and Ivy ran side by side over the next few laps until Ivy utilized the bottom groove to take the lead on lap 22. Ivy drove to the win over McGrath, Valenti, Street and Weaver.

In an effort to advance the sport of sprint car racing, constituents from across the country representing sanctioning bodies, tracks, car owners, chassis builders and drivers have announced the formation of a sprint car council. It is believed to be the first of its kind in the sprint car industry.

The intent and purpose of the council is to improve communication among all constituents in the sprint car industry. The council will work together, focusing on car and track safety initiatives, improving consistency in rules, maintaining costs, enforcing suspensions across all tracks and series, and advancing the holistic improvement of sprint car racing for drivers, team owners, series, tracks and fans.

The council will not act as a governing body. The decision to adjust rules, adapt safety measures, enforce suspensions or otherwise will ultimately be decided at the respective series, track and car owner level.

“Many people in the industry are aware that we had a vision and goal to assemble a council when we met in August during the Knoxville Nationals,” said Tony Stewart, who represents the All Star Circuit of Champions as a series owner. “I am extremely excited about the enthusiasm and participation from our members. This is a great opportunity for all of us to improve sprint car racing for years to come.”

The council will represent individuals from tracks and series representing all geographical areas of the United States. Such individuals will actively participate in sub-councils which will focus on the following disciplines: track safety, car/chassis safety, aerodynamics and forward-looking rules changes.

“Since 1978, the World of Outlaws has been a leader in sprint car racing, and we are pleased to expand on that role with the sprint car council,” said World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter. “Going back 10 years with our stakeholders group, the World of Outlaws has strived to bring the industry closer and to strengthen the foundation of sprint car racing while keeping an eye toward the future. We hope through the sprint car council all the parties can learn from each other to continue enhancing the sport we all love.”

The council will meet four times per year, at a minimum, with to-be-determined dates in February, August, November and December.

Participating members of the council include: All Star Circuit of Champions, American Sprint Car Series (ASCS), Attica Raceway Park, BAPS Motor Speedway, Barry Jackson (crew chief CJB Motorsports and chassis builder), Daryn Pittman (driver), Empire Super Sprints (ESS), IRA Sprints, Jackson Motorplex, John Darby (consultant), Kevin Nouse (PA 358 Sprints), Knoxville Raceway, Lincoln (PA) Speedway, Mark Chevalier (team owner and engineer), Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA), National Sprint League (NSL), Ryan Hand (former crew chief), Paul McMahan (driver), Port Royal Speedway, POWRi, POWRi WAR Sprint Car League, Skagit Speedway, Upper Midwest Sprint Series (UMSS), United States Auto Club (USAC), WI MSA 360 sprints, World Of Outlaws and Williams Grove Speedway.

FREMONT, Ohio - Tim Shaffer dominated the last half of the 11th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway on JLH General Contractor Night to take home the $10,000 payday to wrap up the 67th season of racing at "Track That Action Built."

It was Shaffer's fourth win in the event that is held in honor of the husband and wife team and their family who saved Fremont Speedway and brought it back to life in 2000. Shaffer, who finished second the previous night at Fremont Speedway, now has 18 career wins at the track.

"Cody (Jacobs) and my guys keep giving me a great car. Tonight I could maneuver around and that was huge in lapped traffic. I haven't been here all year and to come in and be good tonight...that's just hats off to Cody and we had Ricky come on board and it seemed to up our game and it's a lot of fun," said Shaffer beside his Rudzik Excavating, FK Rod Ends, Smith Titanium, VRP Shocks backed machine.

Shaffer grabbed the lead from Penngrove, California's Buddy Kofoid on lap 16 of the 40-lap affair and Kofoid held off Cole Duncan to finish in the runner-up spot in his Fremont Speedway debut weekend.

"To finish second to Tim Shaffer is definitely not something to hang your head about. I feel like we got way better once the race went on. I got the wing back and the restarts were killing me. I'd wheelie up so I had to put the wing forward and put it back again. I can't thank Ed Neumeister enough for the opportunity and the Linders and the whole crew that makes this car go fast," Kofoid said beside the Dough Si Dough Bake Shoppe, Linder's Speed Equipment, Fisher Engines backed machine.

"This is probably one of the most fun times I've had in a long time. Just coming to new places is definitely makes you feel good. We were good both nights and picked up from last night. Two top fives...I'll take it," Kofoid added.

Grove City, Ohio's Cole Duncan, who has won a pair of big $10,000 shows this season, settled for third.

"Tim was better, especially earlier. But then it kind of evened out there and the top three cars were pretty similar. He would just stick better. That's all we had. I can't thank my guys enough. We over came a bad starting spot yesterday and put ourselves in a good position today but just came up a little bit short," said Duncan of his Helms Construction, Ohio Heating, Motor City Transport, Eco Mend backed machine.

Fremont's Jamie Miller dominated the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint A-main, leading all 25 laps for his sixth division win of the year at the track. He also has a late model and dirt truck victory in 2018 and now has 20 career wins at Fremont Speedway. It is Miller's 11th overall victory in 2018 in the 305 sprint class. Miller was also crowned the champion of the JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship Series Presented by Engine Pro.

"I was actually a little freeier than I'd have like to have been but we got it done. Thirteen wins in a year was my best and we have 11 this year. It's nothing to complain about. This division is tough to get one win let alone 11," said Miller of his Sonic Hauling, Fostoria Mod Shop, Phil Rister Racing, NAPA of Attica, Reedtown Tavern, Branham Builders, Crown Battery, Avon by Angie, Sparting Underground backed #26.

The Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks competed for a $1,000 pay day and the 20-lap feature came down to the last 100 yards. Miller threw a huge slider on Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti in the final two corners and the duo banged wheels all the way to the checkers with Valenti taking the narrow victory.

It's the fifth truck win of the year at Fremont for Valenti who now has 46 career victories at the track placing him eighth on the all-time win list.

"I know Jamie and that 88 truck is fast and they won here the last time. I got lucky and threw a slider on him on that restart and I figured he was going to be throwing one back. I just hope the fans enjoyed that race because it doesn't get any closer than that," said Valenti. "Hat's off to Rich Farmer (promoter) and everything he has done for the race track. Hope to see him around more years to come. It's sad this is his last night. I have to thank the Babcocks for everything they do for me, Gressman Powersports, APlus Auto Center, Craig Miller Trucking and Pagliai's Pizza...without them this wouldn't be possible."

Shaffer and Kofoid brought the field to green for the 40-lap Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint A-main with Kofoid gaining the advantage. With two laps scored the caution flew for Chance Morton who spun with DJ Foos spinning to avoid him. When the green reappeared Kofoid drove away from Shaffer with Andrew Palker trying to hold off Duncan and Adam Kekich for third.

Morton brought out the caution again on lap eight and on the ensuing restart Shaffer made a bid for the lead but Kofoid fought back the challenge. Duncan soon began pressuring Shaffer with Dale Blaney, Palker and Haudenschild in tow. Foos and Dan McCarron tangled in turn two on lap 13 and this time on the restart Shaffer hung tight with Kofoid and powered under him on lap 16 exiting turn four for the lead.

Travis Philo spun on lap 17 necessitating a fuel stoppage. When the race resumed Shaffer used the clear track to build a lead of over two seconds while Kofoid now had to fend off the challenges of Duncan. Philo would spin again due to steering component issues on lap 22 wiping out Shaffer's big lead.

On the ensuing restart Shaffer powered away from Kofoid, Duncan, Blaney, Palker and Hunter Scherenberg. Shaffer finally encountered lapped traffic with 11 laps to go but was able to maneuver through to maintain his advantage over Kofoid, Duncan, Blaney and Palker.

Shaffer was not to be denied as he drove to the checkers over Kofoid, Duncan, Blaney and Palker rounding out the top five.

In the 25-lap 305 A-main, Tyler Street and Miller brought the field to green but Kyle Peters would spin necessitating another start. The second start saw Miller bolt into the lead over Street, John Ivy, Ricky Peterson, Jimmy McGrath, Seth Schneider and Alvin Roepke.

Miller built a substantial lead until he caught the back of the pack on lap eight. Street was occupied trying to hold off Ivy though with Ivy taking the runner-up spot on lap with McGrath taking third two circuits later. Just as Ivy was reeling in Miller Peterson stopped to bring out the caution with 11 laps to go.

With a clear track Miller began to drive away once again as Ivy, McGrath, Roepke and Schneider gave chase. Roepke drove into third on lap 18 but could not make up ground on the lead duo of Miller and Ivy.

Miller sliced his way through traffic and took the checkers over Ivy, Roepke, Schneider and McGrath.

Fifth starting Kent Brewer drove into the lead of the 20-lap dirt truck A-main at the drop of the green with Miller, Jeff Ward and Brad Keckler giving chase. Within two laps 11th starting Valenti drove up to fifth before the caution for an Eric Devanna spin. On the restart Miller pounced into he lead with Brewer having to fend off Valenti and Ward. A caution for debris on lap five followed a crash involving Brewer and Ward a lap later. Another caution on lap seven for a crash involving four trucks slowed the action on lap seven.

When the green flew again Miller and Valenti began their battle with Cory McCaughey, Keith Sorg and Matt Foos giving chase. Another caution on lap 12 for Kyle Lagrou gave Valenti the opportunity he had been searching for. When the green flew Valenti executed a perfect slider on miller for the lead with McCaughey, Foos, Keckler and Sorg in tow.

Ward brought out the caution with five laps remaining and another involving Ward and Noah Wagner with two laps to go kept the race interesting and setting up the final lap excitement that saw Valenti hold off Miller with McCaughey, Foos and Sorg rounding out the top five.

Sorg was also honored for taking the 2018 Fremont Speedway title, his second in the division in the past three years.

JLH General Contractor gave out lots of bonuses throughout the evening including to the non-transfer cars, feature winners, hard luck driver, best wheelie and three lucky fans who caught Frisbees with the feature winning drivers names on them.

FREMONT, Ohio - It's been a very long time since "The Wild Child" Jac Haudenschild visited victory lane at Fremont Speedway. The 60-year-old hall-of-famer did just that Friday, Sept. 14 to open the 11th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Night.

A crowd favorite, Haudenschild, from Wooster, Ohio, had to hold off last year's opening night Jim Ford Classic winner Tim Shaffer who had charged from 16th starting spot. An fuel stop with four laps to go put Shaffer right on Haudenschild's rear bumper but the veteran hit his marks perfectly to take home the $3,000 payday and his fourth career win at "The Track That Action Built."

"I can't remember when the last time I won at Fremont. We won an All Star show this year and now this and it helps a ton. I saw the 49 started about last and was second so I knew he was on it. When things are working good like this it's still fun. I have to thank all my sponsors; if it wasn't for them we couldn't do this deal," Haudenschild said beside his Southern Pacific Farms, Whistle Stop Bar and Grill, Finzer Farms, Ron Jacobs Trucking, Triple X Race Company, Performance Foot and Ankle backed #3.

By taking the green flag Gibsonburg, Ohio's Craig Mintz earned his third championship and the $10,000 payday for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series Presented by Ohio Logistics. Mintz also earned his third career Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Fremont Speedway track championship.

"I just drive the race car, these guys behind me make it happen. The RPM Chassis, Elite Wings, Kistler Engines...you put those three together and it's a pretty good deal," said Mintz of his titles.

The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 sprint A-main came down to the last corner of the last lap and Fremont's Paul Weaver used a lapped car as a pick to take the $1,000 win from race long leader Kyle Peters. It was Weaver's second win of the year at Fremont Speedway and his eighth overall victory of 2018. Weaver now sits seventh on the track's all-time win list with 47 career feature wins.

"He (Peters) did the right move. I was going to haul it in there...I wasn't going to wreck him. When he decided to go to the bottom I thought hopefully he comes to a stop and I kept my momentum and it worked," said Weaver adding his 10-year-old race shows came apart and the heal kept getting hung up on the brake pedal.

"I have to thank Daryl Schiets, and Bob Hampshire and Dave Rice...if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be here," added Weaver beside his Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Weaver Performance Center, Schiets Motorsports, Seagate Sandblasting, Miller Rigging backed machine.

Fremont, Ohio's John Ivy was also honored for his third career 305 sprint Fremont Speedway track champion. It is Ivy's seventh overall track title as he has three 410 sprint championships and a dirt truck title as well.

Woodville, Ohio's Troy Hahn made is debut in the McCullough Industries Limited Late Models a night to remember at Fremont Speedway as he scored his first career victory.

"This one is for my uncle Bill (Hahn, a former track champion). He got us all into this a long time ago. He's in the hall of fame here. There's a lot of parts and pieces on this car from his old car and I put one of Kenny Hahn's cars back together. This means a lot to the Hahn family. We specifically built this car for this track. I have to thank Rich Farmer for everything he has done for the late models and I now he's planning on retiring but I hope they continue this deal...there's more guys interested in the division," said Hahn beside his L&K Truck and Auto, High Side Design, Wojo's Heating & Air Conditioning, Fremont Chiropractic, Key Realty backed #20.

Fremont, Ohio's Dustin Keegan was recognized for winning the late model track championship to go with his 2017 dirt truck title at Fremont Speedway.

Haudenschild and Stuart Brubaker brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature but before a lap could be completed Chance Morton, making his winged sprint car debut, spun. On the second attempt at a start Brubaker grabbed the lead over Haudenschild, Lee Jacobs, Mintz, Buddy Kofoid, Travis Philo and Dan McCarron.

With three laps scored Nate Dussel spun with the restart order Brubaker, Haudenschild, Jacobs, Mintz, Kofoid, Philo. Disaster struck on lap six for Brubaker who stopped on the speedway, handing the lead to Haudenschild. With seven laps scored DJ Foos took a wild flip in turn three and was uninjured while Mintz and Philo tangled battling for fourth with Mintz coming to a stop. On the restart Haudenschild pulled away from Jacobs, Kofoid, Philo and Cap Henry.

By lap 10 the car on the move was Shaffer who had moved from 16th to sixth. Haudenschild encountered heavy lapped traffic by the 13th circuit allowing Jacobs to close with Kofoid, Shaffer and Henry in tow. Shaffer took third at the half way point and with eight laps to go leader Haudenschild was struggling with lapped traffic allowing Jacobs to close once again.

Morton spun with seven laps to go, giving Haudenschild a clear track. On the restart Shaffer took second from Jacobs and closed quickly on Haudenschild. Once Haudenschild got his rhythm he pulled away from Shaffer with Jacobs, Kofoid, Henry and Philo giving chase.

With just four laps to go Dussel brought out the caution, necessitating a fuel stop. When the race resumed Haudenschild had to deal with Shaffer with Jacobs, Kofoid, Philo, Cole Duncan and McCarron staying close. Haudenschild had one brief scare as he got over the cushion in turn two with two laps to go, but gathered it back in and drove to the win over Shaffer, Jacobs, Kofoid and Henry rounding out the top five.

In the 25-lap 305 sprint feature, Tyler Street and Peters paced the field with Peters grabbing the lead over Street, Weaver, Jamie Miller, John Ivy and Alvin Roepke. Peters and Street battled had for the lead until Chase Dunham had a front end break and hit the front stretch wall. On the restart Peters and Street resumed their battle with Weaver, Miller and Ivy staying close.

Mike Keegan coasted to a stop with six laps scored and when the green flew it was a five car battle for the lead involving Peters, Street, Weaver, Miller and Ivy. Joe Armbruster spun with nine laps scored and on the restart Justin Adams got side ways. A lap later and Jordan Ryan took a tumble in turn one and was uninjured. When the green flew Peters and Street continued to fight for the lead while Weaver and Miller ran nose to tail for third and fourth.

Peters and Street raced side by side from lap 12 to lap 17 when Weaver joined in the battle. Those three put on quite the performance as they entered lapped traffic with three laps to go. Weaver took second on lap 23 and closed on Peters who was trying to navigate through the traffic. After taking the white flag Peters drove into turn three and tried to block Weaver on the bottom but lapped cars slowed his momentum and Weaver blasted to the outside and took the lead exiting turn four and drove to the win over Peters, Ivy, Street and Miller.

Miller and Dana Fry brought the field to green for the 15 lap late model A-main with Miller gaining the advantage with fifth starter Hahn quickly moving into second just before the caution flew for Josh Kiser and Jerry Creeger tangle. On the restart Hahn grabbed the lead over Miller, John Mayes and Steve Sabo.

The car on the move was Chester Fitch who moved into third on lap four but promptly spun. Another caution for Collin Shipley on lap seven allowed Hahn to stay in front of Mayes, Miller, Bill Clapp Jr. and Sabo.

Hahn steadily pulled away and took the win over Sabo, Mayes, Miller and Shipley.

Fremont Speedway will wrap up the 2018 season Saturday, Sept. 15 with the 11th Annual Jim and Joanne Ford Classic paying the 410 feature winner $10,000. The 305 sprints and Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks will also be in action.

Gates open at 4 p.m. with racing at 7 p.m.

FREMONT, Ohio - Heavy rains throughout the morning and afternoon forced the cancellation of racing at Fremont Speedway set for Roots Poultry Night, Tuesday, Aug. 21.

The event was to kick off the Sandusky County Fair which will run throughout the week.

"This is very disappointing. The race teams and fans look forward to this event that is a long-standing tradition for the Sandusky County Fair. But, we encourage all the race fans and everyone in the area to come out to the fair for all the other events throughout the week from pro wrestling Wednesday and the rodeo on Thursday to the demo derby Friday and the tractor pulls Saturday; there's really something for everyone," said Rich Farmer, Fremont Speedway Promoter.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 8 for Kistler Racing Products Season Championship Night featuring the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series Presented by Ohio Logistics along with the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints, Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks and the McCullough Industries Limited Late Models. It is also the "salute to champions" as all former track champions are welcome to attend.
