By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Monday, Aug. 14, 2006) – The summer heats up this weekend as Attica Raceway Park plays host to the 2nd Annual Attica Summer Nationals, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 18 and 19.
Quality Welding Night opens the weekend racing with the fire-breathing 410 winged sprints, exciting 305 sprints and the super late models of the American Late Model Series on the racing card on Friday, Aug. 18. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with racing slated to begin at 8 p.m.
Saturday’s show features all winged sprint cars on Kear’s Speed Shop’s Open-Wheel Onslaught. The 410 sprints will share the card with the 360 sprints of the NRA Sprint Invaders and the 305 sprints. Gates will open at 4:30 p.m. with racing to get underway at 7:30 p.m.
Last year, Fremont’s Mike Linder swept both nights of the Attica Summer Nationals in the 410 sprints. On Friday night, Ryan Lowe won the 305 sprint feature with current ARP Promoter John Bores taking the limited late model victory. On Saturday night, joining Linder in victory lane were Millersburg’s Keith Berner in the ALMS late models and Risingson’s Mike Dussell in the NRA 360 sprints to clinch the series title.
