“We wanted to let our teams know how much we appreciate them. Just because the weather hasn’t cooperated early on doesn’t mean we won’t reward them with a great point fund for 2018. Our weekly purses and season point fund are some of the best in Ohio. We are able to reward our race teams because of the tremendous support we get from our area business partners and of course the fans,” said John Bores, Attica Raceway Park Promoter.
The weekly 410 sprints will pay $3,000 to win while the late models will pay $1,200 to win and the 305 sprints will pay $750 to win.

ATTICA, Ohio – Clear vision on the track for a racer sounds simplistic but how that occurs takes a lot of innovation, something Racing Optics continues to accomplish for every form of motorsports.

The 30th Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics hits the track at Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 10 (rain date of Wednesday, July 11) featuring the best sprint car drivers in the world. The 2017 Brad Doty Classic had 58 drivers compete for the $10,000 top prize, the largest single day car count of the season for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.
“Racing Optics is constantly working on new and innovative products and continues to find ways to incorporate their unique and patented tearoff design into other areas including the GoClear tearoffs for GoPros and even screen protectors for smart phones. Racing Optics tearoffs are by far the best tearoffs on the market and are used all over the world,” said Brad Doty, co-promoter of the race.
“Racing Optics began as a heat race sponsor back in 2009 and became the events presenting sponsor in 2010. We’ve had a long and great marketing partnership and I’m elated that they will be back with us in 2018,” added Doty.
