ATTICA, Ohio – Travis Philo held off Chris Andrews for his first 410 sprint win of the season at Attica Raceway Park Friday, July 27 on Columbus Equipment/Gordon Lumber/True Alpha Wealth Management/Morgan Stanley Night. Matt Miller lost the late model feature lead on lap 10, but utilized the bottom groove to retake the top spot with 10 laps to go and drove to his first win of 2018 at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant. Paul Weaver survived a late race caution to record his third 305 sprint win of the year at Attica.
Philo, from Waterville, Ohio, led all 30 laps of the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main. But his night began on a sour note as the team had to change an engine after qualifying. At one point in the feature he had built nearly a six second lead but lapped traffic saw that advantage quickly disappear and a caution with 12 laps to go put defending Attica track champion Chris Andrews right on his rear bumper. The duo raced nose to tail and with five laps to go as they once again raced into lapped traffic, Andrews dove under Philo several times. Philo utilized the extreme high line cushion to maintain the lead and drove to his third career win at Attica on an All Pro Aluminum Heads FAST 410 Championship Series Presented by Ohio Logistics point night.
“We’ve been so close over the years….it’s been awhile since we’ve been here. We ended up blowing a motor in qualifying – this won’t pay for that but it’s still nice to win. I have to thank my guys. They busted ass and got us back out there for the heat race and luckily we drew the pole. It was tough go get through the lapped cars. The track was kind of narrow in three and four…the top was really moved down. There wasn’t much room to get around them. I knew I chewed up any lead that I had when I caught them and couldn’t get around them. Luckily we had some cautions there and broke it up. I was hoping we wouldn’t catch lapped traffic again after that last restart. I knew Chris was coming…we race each other pretty hard,” said Philo beside his Control Design Solutions/Banshee Graphics/Tire Slick/Interior Supply/Advanced Industrial Services/Bohmer Rentals/Kistler Engines/Slade Shocks/Kistler Racing Products backed machine.
