ATTICA, Ohio – Carson Macedo finally got the monkey off his back at Attica Raceway Park. The past couple of years the Lemoore, California driver looked on his way to an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions feature win at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant only to have a mechanical issue. It all came together Saturday, Sept. 1 as he claimed the Dirt Classic Ohio victory in dominating fashion to close out the 2018 season at Attica Raceway Park on All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads Night.
Macedo took the lead from Cale Thomas on lap two and then lost it to Craig Mintz – who ironically put Macedo in a second team car to come to Ohio a few years ago – in heavy lapped traffic on lap 9. He regained the lead on a restart on lap 10 only to see Mintz challenge again in lapped traffic at the half-way point. Once he cleared traffic, his only challenge would come with six laps to go on a restart. Macedo pulled away in the Tim and Cindy Norman, Joe Gaerte owned machine to score his fourth All Star win of 2018. It was his fifth career series win. It was Macedo’s second career win at Attica.
“This is one of the hardest places in the world to win at in my opinion. There’s so many good local guys…they have a lot of talent. We’ve been so fast here in previous All Star shows we’ve just had bad luck or things happen that set us back. To get the win for my guys, Joe Gaerte, Eric Slade with Slade Shocks, Tim and Cindy Norman and all my sponsors…it’s definitely a team effort. I have a blast driving their car and I’m looking forward to the rest of the All Star season,” Macedo said beside his Tarlton and Son, Southern Pacific Farms, Eagle Ignition Leads, Shepherd Chevrolet, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions backed machine.

For Shaffer, from Aliquippa, Pa., it was career win #63 with the All Stars as he sits fourth all-time with the organization. It was the 17th career win at Attica for the four time All Star champion of which seven have been series victories.

“We’re having a lot of fun and this new RPM car is awesome. It was a pretty steep cushion tonight and at the end I got the wing back too far and I got too tight and thought I was going to give it away but it worked out. Cody and Ricky are doing a great job and the Demyan-Rudzik gang are just an awesome group of guys,” said Shaffer beside the Rudzik Excavating, RPM Chassis, FK Rod Ends, Smith Titanium backed #49x.

“Cody (Jacobs) gave me a car I could move around with in lapped traffic. We are coming on late. We started really good and then backed off a little and now we’re going again. It’s always been fun to race here,” Shaffer added in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.
