ATTICA, Ohio – It took Ryan Missler four years to find victory lane at Attica Raceway Park. The Bellevue, Ohio driver must like the scenery as he scored his second straight late model win Friday, July 6 on Croghan Colonial Bank/Bazell Race Fuels Night.
In a thrilling 305 sprint car feature, Fremont, Ohio’s Dustin Stroup held off Jamie Miller for his second victory of the season while Fremont, Ohio’s Keith Sorg dominated the last half of the dirt truck feature for his second career win at Attica.
Missler used a restart to grab the lead from defending Attica champion Devin Shiels. Missler and Shiels battled the last eight laps of the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Model A-main through lapped traffic. It’s a good thing the feature wasn’t 26 laps as Missler had a left rear tire going down and by the time he found victory lane it was completely flat. It was the 13th career late model win for the five-time Attica champion aboard his Posi-Flow by Slucket, SCS Gearbox, King Industrial Supply, Terry McConnell Excavating, York Fabrication, Handy Grafix, Missler’s Sweets, Turn Key Blog Team, Wilson’s Barber Shop backed #50Y.
“I could feel the tire going down. It doesn’t get any better than this. That lapped traffic was hairy and I didn’t want to see that last caution (with two laps to go) because I felt pretty good maneuvering through there. They were all on the bottom and I was just going to keep running the top. The car’s been pretty good…a lot better than the last couple of years. I feel comfortable in this thing now. I have to thank Jerry and Matt and Amber and Dave and all our sponsors,” said Missler in the Engine Pro Victory Lane. Continue reading
