By Brian Liskai: (Attica, OH) Billboards are being hung, new pit bleachers have been installed, the new track lights have been adjusted…everything is in preparation for the season opening night of racing action at Attica Raceway Park, Friday, March 30 (rain date of Saturday, March 31).
“Mother Nature has cooperated this week so far. She provided warm weather and plenty of wind to help dry out the grounds. The crew worked on the track for five hours the other night and its ready to go. We’re busy sprucing up the rest of the grounds and right now, all systems are go for Friday’s opener,” said ARP Operations Manager Rex LeJeune.
LeJeune said the weather forecast keeps improving for the rest of the week and he expects a large turn-out of World Auto Parts of Huron and Cleveland 410 Sprints, 305 sprints and Fultz Fabrications and Speedshop Attica Late Models on HD Supply Night Friday.
“The grassy parking lot near in the fairgrounds is a little soft yet, but it gets better everyday. We have the parking in the stone areas around the fairgrounds and the stone lot behind the grandstands and the school parking lot near by, so fans have plenty of dry areas to park,” said LeJeune. “John Bores and his crew have made a lot of improvements over the off-season in preparation for Attica’s 20th anniversary and we’re excited to show them off to the fans.”
LeJeune urges fans to keep an eye on the website for “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue by logging onto www.atticaracewaypark.com or call the track office at 419-680-5606.
