8.25.17 Results Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating Night

By Brian Liskai: ATTICA, Ohio – Dale Blaney wasn’t even sure he wanted to race Friday. The J&M Motorsports team experienced mechanical issues with the tow rig and Blaney nearly told them to wait to race until Saturday. The team made it to Attica Raceway Park and Blaney promptly parked the #55 in victory lane on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating Night.

It looked like Cap Henry would take the Hammer Pallets 410 sprint win as the Republic, Ohio driver led the first 18 circuits before jumping the cushion in turns three and four and spinning though he kept it going as Blaney drove by. Blaney had to endure a couple of late race restarts but drove away the final eight laps to take the win 5.6 seconds ahead of Craig Mintz. It was Blaney’s 26th career win at Attica as he sits third on the track’s all-time win list.

“It was a tough night. My daughter’s coming home this weekend…it’s her birthday on Wednesday and I don’t get to see her a whole lot. I can’t thank Gene Jenkins and Scott Mertz and Rick enough for helping out tonight. Scott and Gene have been friends of mine for a long time. Gene worked on my car on the Outlaw tour for a long time. I’m dumfounded the way things have been going this year. I haven’t had the greatest of years. But no better place to finally get one than Attica,” said Blaney beside his Century 21 Mertz & Associates, Svas Appraisals backed machine.

“On the red there (9 laps to go) I didn’t have any brakes and I really didn’t know how hard to run. I knew Stuart (Brubaker) must have been running okay…he kind of followed me up through there a little bit. I knew the 11n (Craig Mintz) was in fourth so I just tried to run as hard as I could and not make any mistakes,” added Blaney in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Sandusky, Ohio’s Chris Andrews wrapped up his second 410 track championship aboard the Burmeister #16.

“Points racing is not fun. I relate it to like NASCAR when they tell you to drive 30 miles an hour slower to save fuel…it’s not fun at all. Sonny (Burmeister) is looking down on us and Sharon…I got a championship for them. I can’t say enough about DJ Foos and that team with Jay Kiser and Daniel Smith…they are tough to beat,” said Andrews, the track’s 2009 champion.

Wooster, Ohio’s Doug Drown grabbed the lead from Steve Kester on lap 11 in the Summit Racing Equipment Late Model feature and then held off a charging Rusty Schlenk to record his third Attica win of the year. The victory moves Drown into a tie with Schlenk atop the division’s all-time win list with 23.

“Kester was rolling pretty good but I don’t know if his motor was letting go or what because he was spitting oil all over me. That’s why I went a groove down and the car was really good down there. But I knew I couldn’t leave the top open for Rusty so I kept looking around and waiting to see him. It was good racing…the track was awesome. I saw Rusty a few times. I knew he would run me hard…that’s how we race each other hard and clean. That’s why we both have the results we have here,” said Drown beside his Hall’s Auto Sales, Kar Connection, Malcuit Racing Engines, Wooster Glass, ABR Farms, Dirty Girl Raceware, Efco backed #240.

Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels scored a sixth place finish to earn his first ever Attica Raceway Park late model track championship.

“I hate to see that top line so fast…I like dry slick. I saw some slide jobs coming and I thought ‘I’d better back out of this.’ I want to thank my dad. I have one more to go. I’m leading Oakshade points with a couple of races left,” said Shiels of his first ever championship.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver only had to make the A-main to score his third track championship in the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints. But, when his engine let go in hot laps, that title was in doubt. In stepped Jim Taddeo who gave up his seat to Weaver. Weaver rewarded that gesture by leading all by the first lap of the feature to score his eight win of the year and wrap up the track championship. It was Weaver’s 43rd career win at Attica in the 305 sprint division as he leads all other drivers.

“Jim’s seat I could have tucked my elbows under so that had to be the first thing to go. Then I had to hold my leg up because he had no heal riser so I had put that in. Still I wasn’t completely comfortable in it…the steering wheel was too low. I have to thank Jim for the opportunity and his crew guys and Daniel for busting their asses to get this thing switched over.. I want to thank Dave Rice and Bob Hampshire…we had something go wrong with the motor…I don’t know how severe. Instead of starting it back up and risk really hurting it I just parked it,” said Weaver beside the Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating, Greber Machine Tools backed #4T.

Cap Henry and Chris Andrews brought the field to green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Henry blasting into the lead. With four laps scored fourth place runner Broc Martin got up on two wheels in turn three causing fifth place DJ Foos to spin to avoid a collision. On the restart Henry pulled away from Andrews, Blaney, Martin, Stuart Brubaker, Jess Stiger and Travis Philo. Henry had a huge lead as he raced into lapped traffic on lap 12 as Andrews was trying to fend off Blaney for second.

At the half-way point Foos spun, ending his night. The restart order was Henry, Blaney, Andrews, Brubaker and Philo. The car on the move was 11th starter Craig Mintz who had worked his way up to sixth. When the green flew so did Henry, pulling away once again. Disaster struck for Henry on lap 19 as he bounced over the cushion in turns three and four, did a 360 degree spin and kept going but fell to fifth as Blaney now led Brubaker, Andrews and Mintz.

Byron Reed stopped on the track with 20 laps in with Blaney continuing to lead Brubaker, Andrews, Mintz, Henry and Philo. Racing ground to a halt with 21 laps scored when Duane Zablocki slowed on the back stretch and Brian Lay drove over him, flipping violently. Neither driver was injured.

Blaney got a great restart and drove away from the field as Brubaker began battling with Mintz with Andrews and Henry racing hard for fourth. Blaney continued to stretch his lead with Mintz finally taking second with two laps to go. When the checkers flew Blaney’s winning margin was 5.6 seconds over Mintz while Philo charged to third on the final lap with Brubaker and Henry rounding out the top five.

Steve Kester and Ryan Missler paced the field for the 25 lap late model feature with Kester jumping into the lead over Missler, Drown, Cody Scott, Mike Bores and Shiels. Doug Baird brought out the first caution with three laps scored with the running order Kester, Drown, Missler, Shiels, Scott, Bores, Ken Hahn and Schlenk. On the restart Drown immediately applied pressure to Kester but a Ryan Eddleblute spin with five laps in postponed that battle. On the restart Kester and Drown continued to race side by side with Missler trying to hold off Shiels, Bores and Scott.

Drown executed a slider in turns three and four to take the lead on lap 11 while Schlenk had blasted his way to third. With 10 laps to go Drown had pulled away as Kester and Schlenk battled for the runner-up spot with Missler, Shiels, Bores, Scott and Dave Hornikel giving chase.

Lapped traffic would allow Schlenk to close on Drown with eight laps to go. Hahn stopped on the back stretch with five laps remaining giving Drown a clear track. When the green flew Drown edged ahead of Schlenk, Kester, Missler, Bores and Shiels. With two laps to go Schlenk was glued to Drown’s rear bumper but a bobble on the cushion in turn two on the white flag lap allowed Drown to drive away to the win. Schlenk, Kester, Missler and Bores rounded out the top five.

John Ivy and Kyle Capodice brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature with Ivy gaining the advantage while fourth starter Weaver powered into second. Weaver blasted to Ivy’s outside to grab the lead on lap two. Weaver couldn’t shake Ivy as the two ran nose to tail over the next hand full of laps. The car on the move was ninth starter Jamie Miller who had worked his way up to third when the caution flew for a Seth Schneider spin with 16 laps to go.

Weaver pulled away on the restart while Ivy had to fend off Miller while Bobby Clark and Capodice stayed close. Ivy started to eat into Weaver’s lead as they raced into lapped traffic with five laps to go. It was now a four car battle for the lead with Weaver holding off Ivy, Clark and Miller. Once through the heaviest of the lapped traffic Weaver was able to pull away to the checkers over Ivy, Miller, Clark and Jordan Ryan.

Attica Raceway Park will close out the season Friday and Saturday, Sept. 1 and 2 with the Attica Ambush. On Friday the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series will battle for $5,000 to win as will the Sunoco American Late Model Series. Saturday includes the make-up A-main for the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions from June 16 and then the Dirt Classic Ohio for the All Stars paying $10,000 to win. The 305 sprints will also be in action Saturday.

8.18.17 Results WNWO NBC 24/Tusing Builders/UBS Financial Services Night

By Brian Liskai: ATTICA, Ohio – The deal was made just Tuesday for Carson Macedo to drive Pete Grove’s #70 sprint car at Attica Raceway Park Friday, Aug. 18. The Lemoore, California driver made it pay off to the tune of $3,000 as he recorded his first ever 410 sprint win at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant.

It wasn’t an easy win for Macedo as a mistake on the last lap nearly cost him the victory. Macedo, who spent much of the 30-lap feature blasting around the cushion, went to the bottom on the final two turns to block the advance of Rob Chaney. Chaney crossed over and it was a drag race to the checkers with Macedo scoring the win by just .073 seconds on WNWO NBC 24/Tusing Builders/UBS Financial Services Night.

“I went down there because I was hoping not to get slid getting into three. Obviously it wasn’t the right decision. We came back across the line and I was like ‘ooh that was pretty close.’ I looked up and saw our number atop the board. I can’t say enough about this team; Pete Grove, both of his kids Ben and Alex, Mikey…just everybody. It’s a team effort and everybody did their job tonight and that’s what it takes to win races. Pete’s got awesome equipment, great motors…the whole package and that’s what it takes,” said Macedo beside his Olympic Forest Products, Lute’s Custom Furniture, J&J Auto Racing backed #70.

“We exchanged words on Tuesday…it’s all about racing all the time. For me the 3G team is my full-time ride…I love driving for Joe Gaerte and Tim Norman…great people and phenomenal race car. They wanted the weekend off after a long week at Knoxville which I totally understand. Me and Pete got a hold of each other and made this deal happen. I’m pretty excited we did. This is surprising really because this place is hard to win at. This place gets pretty slick and technical and it was again tonight. I won at Fremont (Speedway) a couple of times and Attica and Fremont are the places you hear about back home in California. To pick up a win here is pretty awesome,” Macedo added in the Engine Pro Victory Lane.

Ashland, Ohio’s Ryan Markham nearly destroyed his late model at Attica a few weeks ago. His crew went to work and it paid dividends Friday as he led all 25 laps for his third Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model feature of the year and 13th of his career at the track. It wasn’t easy for Markham as he had to withstand several restarts.

“This is the same race car…first time we’ve been back out here since we got it fixed. There about 10 to 12 people that pitched in to get it back together and I have to thank all of them. I knew we were good but I didn’t want to burn a tire up so I was being kind of conservative and then I saw him (Rusty Schlenk) sticking his nose in there at the end so I was like if we burn it up we burn it up…I have to go,” said Markham beside his H&T Demolition; Harriger Towing; Accu-Force Shock Dyno; Innovative Graphics backed #5M.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver survived a one lap shoot out to score his seventh Fremont Fence 305 Sprint car win of 2017 at Attica. Weaver lost the lead to Kyle Capodice on lap 11 while battling through heavy lapped traffic, regained it on a restart with 10 laps to go and other than the a couple of cautions late, was able to hang on for his 42nd career victory in the division at Attica.

“For the first time in probably 10 years I put a brand new tire on the right rear. We figured if we could at least win it would pay for itself. The caution in traffic helped. When you get older and you can’t see….when you come up on them you run their speed and the dust was so bad. The whole race I didn’t run high enough. But leading the points, one race to go, don’t run off the track…you know how it goes. I want to thank Bob Hampshire, Dave Rice, my wife Andrea, Daniel, M&L Excavating, Miller Rigging, Schiets Motorsports and probably one I’ve never mentioned that bails me out when I bend something is Mark Keegan,” said Weaver.

In the Hammer Pallets 410 Sprint feature Tyler Gunn and Chris Andrews brought the field to green for the 30-lap affair with Andrews grabbing the lead. After a lap was scored the caution flew for Stuart Brubaker and Justin Peck as both went to the pits with damage. When the green reappeared Andrews continued to lead while DJ Foos, Byron Reed and Gunn battled for second while seventh starter Macedo moved into fifth by lap three.

Reed took second on lap four and quickly closed on Andrews with Foos, Macedo, Rob Chaney and Gunn giving chase. Utilizing the bottom groove Reed raced under Andrews on lap eight with the leader chopping off his advance the next lap. Macedo moved into third on lap 10 as Andrews and Reed continued battling for the lead. Reed was off the pace and went to the pits on lap 11. Macedo would rim-ride into the lead on lap 13 with Foos taking second from Andrews a circuit later.

A caution for debris on lap 16 gave everyone a chance to catch their breaths with Macedo leading Foos, Chaney, Andrews, Gunn and Cap Henry. On the restart Macedo could not shake Foos and Chaney with Andrews locked in a great battle with Henry and Gunn. With seven laps to go the car on the move was 17th starter Craig Mintz who had moved into eighth. The top three ran nose to tail until three laps to go when Chaney began making his move, driving into second and closing quickly on Macedo.

As Macedo took the white flag, Chaney took a peak to his inside in turns one and two. Entering the final two turns Macedo dove to the bottom and Chaney headed to the cushion. The pair had the crowd on their feet as they blasted to the checkers. Foos would finish third to maintain his lead in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads FAST 410 Championship Series presented by Ohio Logistics, with Henry and 13th starting Jordan Ryan rounding out the top five.

In the 25-lap late model feature Ben Mott and Markham paced the field but Steve Kester and Dave Hornikel tangled causing a second start. On the second attempt Markham bolted into the lead over Mott, Cody Scott, Devin Shiels and Mike Bores. Scott took second on lap three just prior to a caution for a Bob Mayer spin. On the ensuing restart Ky Harper spun. When the green reappeared Markham led Scott, Shiels, Bores, Rusty Schlenk, Doug Drown, Mott and Ryan Missler.

While battling for second on lap nine Bores and Scott tangled with Bores stopping. When the green flew Markham again maintained his lead as Schlenk drove into second over Scott, Shiels, Drown, Missler and Brewer. Mott spun on lap 17, keeping the leaders out of lapped traffic. On the restart Markham was able to hold off Schlenk with Shiels and Drown battling for third. The final caution came with six laps to go. Just as he had done the entire race Markham executed a perfect restart to maintain his lead over Schlenk, Shiels, Drown, Brewer and Missler.

Schlenk began to close on Markham with three laps to go, but a bobble on the tricky cushion in turn four allowed Markham to pull away for the win. Schlenk, Shiels, Drown and Brewer rounded out the top five.

Weaver and Capodice brought the field to green for the 25 lap 305 sprint feature with Weaver blasting into the lead. Weaver and Capodice quickly established themselves as the class of the field, pulling away from a terrific battle for third involving Frank Neill, Luke Griffith, Seth Schneider and Nate Dussel. Dussel would eventually take the third spot and edge closer to the front duo as they prepared to race into very heavy lapped traffic on lap 10.

Capodice utilized the lapped cars to take the lead on lap 11 and he and Weaver ducking in and out of lapped cars running side by side. Neill would bring out the first caution on lap 13 with Capodice leading Weaver, Dussel, Griffith and Bobby Clark. A lapped was scored after the restart before Jerry Dahms spun. On the ensuing restart Weaver blasted to Capodice’s outside to regain the lead while Dussel had his hands full with Bobby Clark for third. Dussel drove off the high side of the track on lap 18 ending his bid for the win.

With a clear track Weaver pulled away as Capodice now fought with Clark for the runner-up position. Steve Rando drove off the track on lap 21 putting Capodice and Clark on Weaver’s rear bumper. Weaver pulled away again on the restart and was cruising to the win when Griffith stopped in turn two on the final lap setting up a one-lap shoot out.

Weaver blasted to the cushion and drove to the win to help add to his JLH General Contractor FAST 305 Championship series presented by Engine Pro point lead as he looks to score back-to-back championships. Capodice, Clark, Schneider and Ricky Peterson rounded out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will host crown its champions on Friday, Aug. 25 on Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Night. Double points are on the line for all three divisions.
