Wilson back in Attica victory lane

By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Friday, July 28, 2006) – Greg Wilson has been very fast all year, but bad luck has struck the Benton Ridge, Ohio driver, keeping him from several feature wins. However, he wasn’t to be denied Friday at Attica Raceway Park, as he dominated the 410 sprint feature for his third win of the year at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue on Budweiser Night.

Tiffin’s Jeff McCoy held off several challenges for the lead from Mike Marteney and Bill Hahn to score his second limited late model victory of the year, earning $1,000 thanks to Underground Utilities Inc. It was McCoy’s 19th career Attica win.

Fostoria’s Scott Kraylek was the beneficiary when early leader Paul Weaver and Bryan Sebetto tangled with eight laps to go, as he scored his eighth career Attica victory in the 305 sprint make-up feature from July 21.

Sebetto would come back to take the checkered in the regular portion of the night’s program for his second career victory at Attica in the 305 sprints.

Tiffin’s Art Ball held off a last-lap challenge from Cory Ward to win the $450 Tiffin Area Business Community feature in the dirt trucks. It was the 67-year-old’s second career truck victory at ARP.

In the 410 sprint feature, Wilson jumped to a big lead from his pole starting spot with Mike Linder and Brandon Martin in tow. The current All Star Circuit of Champions point leader built a sizeable lead while Linder, Martin and Caleb Griffith battled behind.

The first caution would fly at the half-way mark of the 30-lap affair with Wilson holding a four lapped-car advantage over Linder, Griffith and Lee Jacobs. When the race resumed, Wilson resumed his assault on the high side, with Linder keeping him in his sites while Griffith and Jacobs battled for third.

The yellow would fly for the last time on lap 21 with the running order Wilson, Linder, Griffith, Jacobs and David Harrison. When the green came back out, Wilson built up his lead as Linder now had his hands full with Griffith.

At the checkered, Wilson held a 7 car length advantage over Linder, Griffith, Jacobs, Harrison, 12th starting Mark Keegan, Martin and Bryan Scott.

“We were fast the last couple of weeks but weird stuff would happen that kept us out of victory lane,” said Wilson beside his All Star Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning sponsored #W20. “My nephew drew that pole starting number and that helped turn our fortunes around.”

For Wilson it was his 14th career Attica win, tying him for fifth on the all-time 410 sprint win list.

In the limited late model feature, McCoy jumped into the lead from his pole starting spot, but he couldn’t pull away from Bill Hahn and Mike Marteney who hounded him the entire distance.

At the half-way mark of the 20-lap affair, McCoy lead over Hahn, Marteney, Ryan Missler, John Mayes Jr. and Larry Kingseed. He would lead the rest of the way for his second win of the season at Attica.

Behind McCoy at the checkered were Hahn, Marteney, Missler and Kingseed.

“I have to thank the Stiltner family…if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t be racing,” said McCoy beside his Abdoo Wrecking sponsored #02. “Mike (Marteney) raced me hard and clean and then I saw that block nose (Hahn) under me a few times and I knew I was in for a battle.”

In the make-up 305 sprint feature, Weaver would jump into the early lead with Kraylek in tow. The five-time Attica winner would cruise to a big lead that would be wiped out with a lap 17 caution. The running order was Weaver, Sebetto (up from 11th), Kraylek and Coty Runion.

On the restart, Sebetto executed the slide job in turn one, sliding up in front of Weaver for the lead. Weaver would not give up, as he got into the tail of Sebetto exiting turn two, sending him spinning. Weaver was black-flagged for rough driving, thus giving the lead to Kraylek.

Kraylek would lead the rest of the way for his eighth career Attica win. Jim Dunham would come home second followed by Runion, Dustin Dinan and Andy Shammo rounding out the top five.

“I hated to see that happen in front of me, but I was in the right place at the right time,” said Kraylek beside his Lincoln Mortgage, Keith Brewer Automotive sponsored #21. “I don’t think I could have caught those two guys…I had my foot all the way to the floor…their motors are sharper than mine…it’s tired.”

In the regular portion of the 305 night, Fostoria’s Bill Kraylek would jump into the early lead and continue to hold the point until lap 15 of the 25-lap affair. Behind him Sebetto moved from his fifth starting spot to four on lap six and into third on lap eight. He would advance to second by lap 14 and then drover around Kraylek for the lead on lap 16.

Sebetto would take the checkered ahead of 12th starting Chris Andrews, Scott Kraylek, Bill Kraylek and Andy Shammo.

“I’m not going to comment on what happened in the first feature…I have my story and I’m sure Paul has his,” said Sebetto about the first feature altercation. “All I know is we have finished second a lot lately and it feels awesome to get back to victory lane. I won my first feature here in 2003 and it’s taken a long time to get another one.

“I have to thank Matt Poltner my owner for sticking with me and my crew for all their hard work,” added Sebetto beside his Madison Street Tavern/Abdoo Wrecking sponsored #01.

In the 15-lap dirt truck main, pole-sitter Art Ball lead all the way, but couldn’t shake Bellevue’s Cory Ward who hounded him from the second lap on. As Ball took the white flag, Ward stuck his nose under the veteran as they raced side-by-side down the back stretch. Exiting turn four for the win, Ball held on by a front fender, with Ward, Brian Arnold, Steve Endicott and Bob Dible rounding out the top five.

“Winning keeps you young,” said Ball beside his Pierce Engineering/Mager’s Lumber sponsored #01 truck. “These guys are tough competitors and they raced very clean. I have to thank the Pierce family for giving me everything I need to race and have fun.”

Attica Raceway Park will host Family Night sponsored by Burns Electric of Tiffin on Friday, Aug. 4, with adult admission only $10! Bring the whole family out (kids 10 and under get in free) and enjoy the racing action featuring the 410 sprints, 305 sprints, limited late models and dirt trucks.

Kaeding holds off “The Boss” for NST win at Attica

By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Friday, July 21, 2006) – Tim Kaeding has paid attention in “school.” He took the lessons learned from arguably the best sprint car driver of all time – his car owner – Steve Kinser, and used it against “The King” and “The Dude” Danny Lasoski to outdual them the final seven laps to score his 10th National Sprint Tour win of the season at Attica Raceway Park Friday.

On a restart with seven laps remaining, Kaeding drove his Slick 50 sponsored #11k around the rim and past Lasoski to grab the lead and immediately went back to the bottom groove. While the Clovis, California resident thought he would cruise to the win, Kinser powered his Quaker State #11 around Lasoski for second and moved to the outside to challenge Kaeding.

With four laps remaining Kinser would try the top side and tried to pinch Kaeding for the lead, but he would have none of it as he held his ground, sliding up top for the block. The next lap Kinser would try the slide job on Kaeding in turns three and four, almost taking both cars out, but Kaeding would hang onto the lead, as Kinser slide high, nearly making contact with the front stretch wall, allowing Lasoski to sneak by into second.

Kaeding would go on to the victory over Lasoski, Kinser, outside front row starter Shane Stewart, quick qualifier Dale Blaney, Jason Meyers (up from 13th starting spot), Greg Wilson, Kerry Madsen, Paul McMahan and Jason Sides.

“I live and die by the high side,” said Kaeding about his winning move onthe lap 33 restart. “But I knew once I got around Danny I had better get back to the bottom because he was really good down there. Then I saw Steve outside of me…I have to admit it, I blocked a lot those last few laps.”

“We’ve struggled the past few weeks…to get back on track and put such a great show on for the fans…WOW! This is a dream season,” added Kaeding.

The 40-lap Kistler Engines feature had Jason Solwold and Stewart in the front row. Before they could get a lap in, Solwold spun in turn four. On the restart, Stewart would jump into the lead with Lasoski, Kinser, Kaeding and All-Star Circuit of Champions point leader Wilson in tow. The yellow would not fly again until lap 33.

On lap six, Lasoski, utilizing the bottom groove, moved beside Stewart and would take the top spot a lap later. By lap 9 the leaders hit lapped traffic, allowing Kinser and Kaeding to move around Stewart. The top three would remain that way until the halfway mark when Kaeding began pressuring Kinser for second. Kaeding would grab the runner-up spot on lap 27 and set his sights on Lasoski, setting up the dramatic finish the last seven laps.

The A-mains for the 305 sprints and limited late models were postponed due to unsafe track conditions. A blown motor in the limited late B-main caused the track crew to put loose clay over the oil. When the 305 sprints tried to start their feature, the very dusty conditions created an unsafe race environment, so ARP officials decided to end the night. The 305 sprints will make up the A-main on Friday, July 28 in addition to their regular program. The limited late model A-main will be made up on Friday, Aug. 4 in addition to their regular program.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 28 for Budweiser Night with the 410 sprints, 305 sprints (double features), the limited late models (Underground Utilities Inc. A-main paying $1,000 to win) and the dirt trucks.

7.7.06 Results

Keegan ends dryspell at Attica; Weaver scores 5th victory; Marteney, Dible win

By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Friday, July 7, 2006) – There was a time at Attica Raceway Park when the mere mention of Mark Keegan’s name drew an emotional response – some applause and some boos. That was because the Fremont driver dominated sprint car racing there, picking up 52 wins and 12 track titles over the first 17 years of the track’s existence.

But the last five years have been relatively quiet for Keegan. Sure there was a 410 sprint track title in 2004, but no feature wins since 2001.

That all changed Friday, as Keegan led all 30 laps and survived some close calls with lapped traffic to score his 53rd career Attica win on Smith Family Frosted Foods Night.

Fans witnessed an exciting battle in the 305 sprint feature, with current point leader Paul Weaver of Fremont and Bryan Sebetto of Fremont swapping the lead on at least five ocassions before Weaver would post his fifth win of the season to celebrate Christmas in July at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant.

The limited late model feature saw Bellevue’s Mike Marteney and Gibsonburg’s Bill Hahn race side by side for several laps before Marteney would score his second victory of the year.

Not to be outdone, the dirt trucks put on a whale of a race, with Fostoria’s Bob Dible and Tiffin’s Brian Arnold trading the lead back and forth while continually racing door to door throughout. Dible eventually edged Arnold for his first career Attica win.

“Sorry it took so long to get back to the horse track here…but I forgot where it was,” joked Keegan beside his Midwest Transportation/Jon Wright Custom Chrome/Edward Jones Financial Services sponsored #X car. “The starting spot (outside front row) was everything tonight for us. The track was so demanding and fast…it would have made it hard for us to pass a lot of cars. I have to thank my brother, Larry, and Tom Kistler for all the help they give me. I especially have to thank all these sponsors..without them I couldn’t keep doing this.”

“I didn’t even have time to grab a tear-off (clear plastic sheet on helmet’s shield). The track was very fast and tricky,” said Weaver on his victory aboard his Genzman Racing/Levell Performance #1w. “Normally I say you have to be patient and stay out of trouble, but Bryan Sebetto wouldn’t let me wait tonight. He raced me hard and clean. I want to thank my crew and my
wife for working so hard on this car.”

“That was a lot of fun racing Bill (Hahn). He’s a good, clean, hard racer,” said Marteney beside his Quality Welding, York Fabrication, Cameo’s Pizza sponsored #45. “I would get under Bill and he would drive around the outside. So I’d go up top and he’d go under me. I think we finally have this car figured out and we can be competitive the rest of the year.”

“I can’t say enough for the guys who put in so much time on this truck. I also have to give Brian Arnold a lot of credit. There were times we could have taken each other out, but he trusts that I won’t do that and I trust he won’t do that,” said Dible standing beside his Bob’s Machine/Slammers Sports Bar sponsored #17. “I want to thank my wife Becky who’s home tonight recuperating from shoulder surgery.”

In the 410 sprint main, Keegan bolted into the lead at the drop of the green, with David Harrison and Todd Heller in tow. Keegan set a blistering pace, hitting lapped traffic by lap 6. Disaster nearly truck for Keegan on lap 9, when the motor let loose in Mike Burkin’s car right in front of the leader, sending him over the banking of turn 1. Keegan kept the car going and retained his top spot, with three lapped machines between he and second place running Harrison, who had his hands full with a charging Lee Jacobs and Mike Linder.

On the restart, both Jacobs and Linder moved around Harrison, with the yellow once again flying a lap later for a stalled Craig Mintz. All eyes were on Byron Reed who had moved from his 16th starting spot to fifth.The field would see 10 laps of green flag racing, with Keegan having to be cautious in lapped traffic, allowing Jacobs to close.

But action would grind to a halt on lap 20, as Jody Keegan smacked the front stretch wall and flipped. He would walk away uninjured. Keegan now had a clear track ahead and went on to the win, with Jacobs, Linder, Reed and Heller rounding out the top five.

In the 305 sprint feature, Sebetto would take the early lead from his pole starting spot, with Dustin Dinan and Brad Haudenschild in tow. The red would stop racing on lap 2 for an upside down Coty Runion (unhurt). On the restart, Sebetto would retain the lead, but the crowd was watching Weaver, who had started 11th and was up to fourth by lap 4. Weaver would shoot around Haudenschild and Dinan on each of the next two laps to move into the runner-up position by lap 6.

Sebetto continued to lead until lap 12, when a bobble in turn one would allow Weaver to take the lead Weaver would lead the next four circuits before Sebetto would catch him and race side by side over the next four laps, swapping the lead through each turn. Weaver would edge Sebetto at the checkered with Dinan, A.J. Sleek and Andy Shammo rounding out the top five.

Bellevue’s Ryan Missler led the limited lates to the green and would grab the lead. However, Hahn shot around Missler a lap later and continued to lead through a lap 9 caution. Hahn an sixth starting Marteney would battle the next three laps before Marteney would shoot to the inside of Hahn exiting turn two to grab the point. Hahn and Missler would pressure Marteney the entire rest of the way, but fell short at the checkered. Behind Marteney, Missler, Hahn, Larry Kingseed and Art Ball would round out the top five.

In the dirt truck feature, Fremont’s Bobby Davis would jump into the early lead, with Dible getting around him a lap later. Arnold would power around the outside of Dible on lap 9 of the 15-lap affair, but Dible would pull along side the next lap for the lead. The two would swap the top spot back and forth the rest of the way, with Dible hanging on for the win over Arnold, Art Ball, Steve Endicott and Shawn Valenti.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, July 14 for Underground Utilities Night featuring the winged 410 sprints, 305 sprints, limited lates ($1,000 to win!) and the dirt trucks. Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing gets underway at 8 p.m. For more information call 419-426-8911 or visit www.atticaracewaypark.com
