Attica To Utilize Hoosier Spec Tire In 2007

By Brian Liskai: (Attica, OH) Attica Raceway Park has signed with Hoosier to utilize the National Tire Rule for all sprints during the 2007 season.

The right rear spec tire will be the Hoosier 105/18-15, compounds SC12, SC15, and SC25. The retail price is $183.65.

“Since the majority of the national touring winged 410 sprint organizations are utilizing thie new Hooser tire, it made sense for Attica to also incorporate the tire to help our weekly race teams save money and be competitive,” said ARP Operations Manager Rex LeJeune.

The new Hoosier right rear spec tire will be in effect for the 410 sprints and 305 sprints beginning Friday, April 27. All race nights prior to that date will be an open tire rule. Attica Raceway Park’s 20th season is scheduled to kick off Friday, March 30 (raindate of Saturday, March 31). The O’Reilly All Star Spring Nationals, April 6 and 7, and the World of Outlaws visit on April 20, will fall under the sanction bodies’ tire rule.

By Brian Liskai (Attica, OH) Racing and auto parts…you can’t have one without the other. That is why Attica Raceway Park and World Auto Parts of Huron, Ohio, are teaming up for the 2007 racing season.

World Auto Parts, based in Cleveland, Ohio since 1982, expanded to the Huron, Ohio area last year. According to World Auto Parts representatives Mark Shetzer and Rob Natole – who have both been very active in grassroots racing – the partnership between the company and “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue will be very beneficial for the racers, fans and World Auto Parts not only in 2007, but for years to come.

“Both company’s thrive on that personal touch and know what it takes to be rewarding for both parties involved,” said Shetzer.

Shetzer said he knows how race fans and business owners in the racing community support those that support racing.

“As we grow in the Ohio area it is important for us to be involved with company’s that reach both fans and businesses so they become familiar with us,” added Natole.

World Auto Parts of Huron will sponsor race nights on Friday, May 11 and Saturday, August 18. Also, Attica Raceway Park’s premier weekly division will be called the World Auto Parts of Huron 410 Sprints.

Attica Gearing Up For Exciting 2007 Season

By Brian Liskai: (Attica, OH) While the weather outside may not be ideal for mud-slinging dirt track racing action now, work at Attica Raceway Park is proceeding and the excitement to be offered up in 2007 will certainly warm the thoughts of race fans.

Many more improvements and a very aggressive action packed schedule have Promoter John Bores and his race staff excited about the 2007 season at Attica Raceway Park. The new ARP team made tremendous strides during the 2006 season at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue after taking over the racetrack in mid January last year.

Improvements began immediately with repairing the drainage system, installing new concession equipment, an all new guardrail down the front stretch, digging a pond with an endless water supply for track preparation, many pieces of equipment for track preparation, and increased purses for all classes.
Bores was especially excited about the way the track crew was able to learn and improve the track conditions throughout the season. “I believe from about the mid-season point on, the track preparation really improved and the racing surface was smooth and fast,” said Bores, who also competes in the Fultz Fabrication & Speed Shop ARP Late Model division.

As soon as the 2006 season ended the ARP crew was at it again to make more improvements to give the fans, drivers and race teams an even better night of racing and fun for the 20th racing season at Attica Raceway Park. Improvements for 2007 included an all-new spectacular website, more remodeling and equipment for the concession area to make it better for the fans that enjoy the tasty food at ARP. The front stretch catch fence and lights were taken down and an all new catch fence and new light poles and lights were installed.

“The catch fence and lights will really help both the racers and fans, for safety, appearance, and being able to see the races better,” said Bores.

Also, a new set of grandstands with over 600 seats will be placed in the pit area. The seats will be elevated higher for a great view from the pit area. A section of the old bleachers are placed off the third turn area for the teams that park in the back of the pit area. Clay was added and the entire racing surface was regraded.

Attica Raceway Park’s 2007 schedule appears to be one of the best in the track’s history with the reunited World of Outlaws sprints returning Friday, April 20. Reserved seats are available. The first ever appearance of the World of Outlaws Late Models will happen on Wednesday, July 25.

The fan-favorite O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champion Sprints will invade Attica four times with the Spring Nationals on Friday, April 6 and Saturday April 7; Ohio Sprint Speedweek on Sunday, June 24; and Saturday, Sept. 1 of Labor Day weekend.

The Sunoco American Late Model Series will make three and possibly four appearances in 2007, on Saturday, April 14, Friday, May 25, and Friday, June 22.

Add all that to one of the best weekly programs in the country with 410 Sprints, 305 Sprints, Attica Late Models, and Dirt Trucks racing for a weekly purse in excess of $22,000, and Attica Raceway Park will be the place to be on Friday nights. The 2007 season kicks off Friday, March 30, with a rain date of Saturday, March 31.

A complete schedule and special pricing for season passes and skybox seating will be available soon. For more information visit www.atticaracewaypark.com or call (419) 680-5606.
