Brubaker holds off Reed for 1st 410 Attica win
Schlenk borrows car and scores late model victory;
Miller blasts to 305 sprint win; Foos gets 2nd truck victory

By Brian Liskai ATTICA, Ohio – Gibsonburg, Ohio’s Stuart Brubaker held off a charging Byron Reed to score his first ever 410 sprint win at Attica Raceway Park Friday on Baumann Auto Group/Burns Electric Night.

It was an emotional win in the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints for Brubaker as the man who gave him the ride – Sonny Burmeister – passed away this past winter.

“This is amazing. I have THE best bunch of guys to work with. This one here is for Sonny. We lost Sonny this past winter. When he hired me he was in the nursing home…he built a hell of a race team. Sharon (Burmeister) is awesome. She keeps me positive and keeps me going. And Mikey, Tyler and all the kids here that help…just unbelievable,” said Brubaker beside his Dave Story Equipment; Stephen P. Mapus Productive Tools, Randy Beeker Excavating, Adkins Fence and Sanitation, Huffman Tools, Kistler Racing Products backed machine.

Though he charged from his fourth starting spot to lead all 30 laps, it wasn’t easy for Brubaker as six time Attica champion Byron Reed would storm from his 16th starting spot to challenge the final two laps.

“I started slowing down there…I didn’t hear anyone coming and I was trying to save tires. I saw a black wing down there and I hauled it into three and I said I hope this things sticks,” said Brubaker of his Meggit Sandblasting, Advantage Ford, Schiets Motorsports, Burmeister Plowing backed #16.

McClure, Ohio’s Rusty Schlenk had a rough weekend last week, crashing while leading and then finding out he blew the motor. He was in danger of giving up his national UMP late model point lead. But, a former car turned into a savior as he led all 25 laps to score the win in the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models. It was the 20th career win at Attica for Schlenk.

“Derek, a customer of ours, actually bought this car from me last year. This is the Pierce car I drove last year so I’m pretty familiar with it. He took the weekend off. He was actually second in points up to Cherry and he was generous enough to loan us the car for the weekend so we can keep our national points lead up,” said Schlenk.

“We’ve had a rash of bad luck…it’s been horrible. We almost won two in a row last weekend. Two laps to go I got stuffed into the wall at LaSalle and destroyed the front end of the car. Then we get home and get it backed together and started doing maintenance on the car and found we had a blown motor. I had to scramble to find a ride,” added Schlenk.

There’s just something about the high side at Attica that suits Jamie Miller’s driving style. The Fremont, Ohio driver blasted into the lead from his fourth starting spot at the drop of the green, had a scary moment when he drove off the track, but ended up with his second win of the season in the Foster’s Auto Body 305 Sprints. It is Miller’s 11th career win at Attica in the 305 division.

“I don’t know if someone lost some water or something…I hit something. I went into one and two the lap before and it was good and then I went in there the next lap and I was chasing it and off the top I went. Must have had a pretty good lead because when I came back on the track Seth (Schneider) was just passing me,” said Miller beside his Advanced Industrial Services, Fostoria Mod Shop, Quarterback Transportation, Western Lake Erie Insulation Industry, Pioneer Quick Lube, Scott’s Lawn Care and Snow Removal backed #39.

“I’ve always been good around the top here. I’d rather be up there…more comfortable for me. It took me years and a lot of torn up equipment to figure out how to run it and be that fast. We’ve been on a real strong roll,” added Miller.

Fremont, Ohio’s Matt Foos battled first with Kyle Cline and then held off a late race charge from Kent Brewer to score his second win of the season in the Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks. It was his fourth career Attica victory.

“Right before we pulled out for the feature they told me the torque convertor was broke. We got lucky. I have to thank Fremont Fence, M and L Excavating, Automatic Fire Protection, Level Performance, Pit Stop and Brian and Sherry (Sorg, truck owners) and all my guys,” said Foos.

Mitch Harble and Nate Reeser brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature in front of packed grandstands. But, it was Brubaker who used the extreme high line to blast to the lead. Harble, Reeser, Nate Dussel, Caleb Armstrong, Jody Keegan, Todd Kane and Chris Andrews gave chase.

Dussel would take third on lap three just before Reeser would spin. On the restart Brubaker pulled away as Harble and Dussel battled for second with Keegan, Armstrong, Kane and Andrews staying close.

The second and final caution would fly for Bryan Nuckles on lap six with the running order Brubaker, Dussel, Harble, Armstrong, Keegan, Kane, Andrews, Tyler Gunn, Ryan Broughton and D.J. Foos. With nine laps in all eyes were on 16th place starter Byron Reed ad he had moved up to eighth.

Brubaker continued to hold a two car length lead over Dussel with Armstrong taking third on lap 12. At the half way point the running order was Brubaker, Dussel, Armstrong, Keegan, Harble, Reed and Andrews. Reed would crack the top five on lap 116 and took fourth with 10 laps to go and moved into third by lap 22.

Brubaker caught the back of the pack with seven circuits remaining and Dussel and Reed closed. Reed would drive around Dussel on lap 24 and quickly closed the distance on Brubaker. As they took the white flag Reed dove to Brubaker’s inside in turns one and two but Brubaker’s momentum kept him out front and he picked up the pace in the final set of turns to take the win. Reed, Dussel, Andrews and Keegan would round out the top five.

In the 25-lap late model feature, Schlenk and Mike Bores brought the field to green. Schlenk would gain the advantage as third starter Chris Keller drove into second followed by Bores, Ken Hahn, Ryan Markham, Rick Bond, Larry Kingseed, Dave Hornikel and Doug Drown.

Schlenk would begin to pull away as Keller and Bores battled for second and behind them a tremendous race for fourth involving Hahn, Markham, Hornikel, Bond and Drown. The caution would fly for Josh Haynes on lap five and when the green returned Schlenk again pulled away from Keller, Bores, Hahn, Markham and Hornikel. Markham would drive into fourth on lap seven, bringing Hornikel to fifth.

The second and final caution would fly on lap 11 as Hornikel spun. The restart order was Schlenk, Keller, Bores, Markham, Drown, Bond, Matt Irey and Ryan Missler. With 10 laps to go Markham and Drown were locked into a tremendous battle for fourth. That duo would reel in Bores and it became a three car race for third.

Schlenk rocketed away on the high side by Keller started to close using the bottom groove. Drown would take third on lap 19. The leaders would not find lapped traffic until there were just two laps to go. Drown would use the lapped cars to take second from Keller as the white flag flew.

Schlenk would drive to the win over Drown, Keller, Markham and Bores.

In the 25 lap 305 sprint feature, Seth Schneider and Brandon Moore brought the field to green but it was fourth place starter Miller who blasted around the top to grab the lead. Schneider, Moore, Dan McCarron, Dustin Dinan, Trey Jacobs, Kelsey Ivy and Steve Rando gave chase.

Miller began to pull away as Schneider, Moore and McCarron battled for second. But, on lap six Miller slid off the top side of turns one and two, handing the lead to Schneider as Miller came back on the track in second. Miller would drive back into the lead on lap 9.

As the leaders hit lapped traffic on lap 11 in the non-stop feature, Miller had a commanding lead over Schneider, Moore, McCarron, Dinan, Rando, Jacobs, Jordan Ryan and Paul Weaver. Rando would use the high line to drive into third by lap 16.

As Miller drove away, Schneider would have his hands full with Rando the remaining five laps as Moore, McCarron, Dinan, Jacobs, Weaver and Ryan held a great battle for fourth.

Miller picked his way through traffic to take the win over Schneider, Rando, Moore and a closing Ryan.

Jimmy McGrath Jr. and Kyle Cline would pace the field for the 15 lap dirt truck feature. After Cory McCaughey stopped on the initial start, the second attempt would see Cline take the lead over Foos, McGrath, Kent Brewer, Brandon Leighton and Dustin Keegan.

Foos would drive under Cline for the lead on lap two as Brewer then pressured Cline for second with McGrath staying close. The caution would fly for Cory Ward on lap five with Foos leading Cline, Brewer, McGrath, Keith Sorg and Leighton.

Two laps later the caution would fly for Perry Perkins with Foos now leading Brewer, Cline, McGrath, Sorg, Leighton, Keegan and Eric Devanna. When the green flew Brewer looked to Foos’ inside several times as the two battled for the lead. Another caution on lap 12 for Bradley Stuckey gave Brewer one last chance to try to take the lead. But, Foos hit his marks perfectly the final three laps for the win with Brewer a close second followed by McGrath, Cline, and Keegan.
