Chamberlain Sweeps Attica ALMS, Sebetto Takes 3rd Straight In 305s, Ball Edges Dible In Trucks

By Brian Liskai: (Attica, OH) Duane Chamberlain was having a bad-racing month. What he needed was a shot in the arm, some confidence. He got that and more Friday at Attica Raceway Park, as the Richmond, Indiana driver won both the Sunoco American Late Model Series feature events – the make-up from the May 25 Fultz Fabrications & Speed Shop that was rained out, and the regular show on Wynn’s Automotive/ Service Drive Solutions Night.

Fremont’s Bryan Sebetto scored his third straight 305 sprint feature win at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue.

Tiffin’s Art Ball literally won by a bumper in the dirt truck A-Main.

Chamberlain lead both 30-lap late model features wire to wire, surviving a crash-filled A-main in the make-up feature, and an ill-handling car in the final feature. The wins were his fifth and sixth of the season and his third and fourth in the Sunoco American Late Model Series.

Image”We haven’t been very good at all this month…our luck has been horrible. We got to start up front and that was a huge difference. In the first feature, I just had to stay up against the cushion. With all those yellows (six) in the first feature, I was wondering when something would happen to the car,” said Chamberlain beside his CW Excavating sponsored #1c. “In the second one, I got into a lapped car about half-way through and must have broke something in the front, because it was a handful. My wife is seven months pregnant, so somebody must have known I needed these wins.”

Sebetto drove his Gressman Powersports #01 around the high side of Matt Lucius exiting turn 4 on lap 10 and never looked back as he sailed to his fifth win at Attica for the season.

“This thing is just so good around the high side of three and four…I could almost flat-foot it around there,” said Sebetto beside his Frosty’s Put-In-Bay Bar sponsored sprinter. “We had our fingers crossed this motor would last…we broke something in the oil pump ealier in the night. That’s just tells you how good a motor Scott Gressman builds.”

The truck feature once again was unbelieveable, as Ball and Dible raced side by side the last five laps of the feature before Ball would edge Dible at the start-finish line. It marked Ball’s third win of the season at Attica in the last four weeks of racing. He now has five victories in his career in the dirt trucks at Attica to lead all drivers.

“I didn’t know who won. I kind of got in cruise control early on and then something woke me up and told me it was time to race,” said Ball beside his Chaney Roofing, Clouse Construction, All In One Home Improvement backed truck. “I have to give Bob Dible credit….he raced me as hard as anyone has ever raced me and he did it as clean as anyone has.”

In the make-up ALMS feature, Chamberlain jumped into the early lead from his outside front row starting spot with Ryan Markham and Dusty Moore giving chase. Four yellows would stop the action in the first 10 laps, continuously giving Chamberlain a clear track. The real battle was for second between Markham, Aaron Scott, Brian Ruhlman and Ronnie Perrin Jr.

ImageAt the half-way mark of the 30-lap event, Chamberlain lead over Markham, Perrin, Ryan Missler and Tim Sabo. Perrin would get around Markham on lap 18, but would retire to the pits with mechanical woes three laps later.Casey Noonan and Jerry Bowersocks would pick up their pass in the closing six laps, but it was too little too late, as Chamberlain powered away to the win. Markham, Missler, Bowersocks and 16th-starter Keith Berner would round out the top five. However, Missler’s car would come up light at the scales and he would be scored last.

Chamberlain would again start in the outside front row for the Wynn’s Automotive/Service Drive Solution A-main and would once again use the outside groove to build a lead. And, once again, the action behind him was fantastic between Markham, Ruhlman, Eric Myers, Tyler Boggs and Rick Combs. Unlike the first feature, this one saw only two yellows, but they would fall at opportune times for Chamberlain as was getting into heavy lapped traffic.

Chamberlain would get some pressure from Ruhlman by lap 24, but once he clearned traffic he would build his lead to five car lengths. Ruhlman would finish second with Markham, Combs and Boggs rounding out the top five.

In the 305 sprint feature, Matt Lucius would utilize the bottom groove to grab the early lead over Dustin Dinan, Chris Lang, Duane Zablocki and Brad Bowman. All eyes were on 9th-starter Sebetto and 15th-starter Andy Shammo as they picked their way through traffic. Sebetto would crack the top five on lap 6, with Shammo moving into sixth place as the first yellow flew on lap 8. The running order was Lucius, Dinan, Lang, Sebetto, Bowman and Shammo. When the green came back out, Sebetto would drive to the cushion in turns 3 and 4 and move from 4th to second in one corner. He would use the same groove to power past Lucius on lap 10 and built a huge lead. Meanwhile, Shammo continued his march forward and moved into second on lap 16. By then, Sebetto’s lead was nearly half a lap as he worked his way through traffic.

At the checkered flag, it was Sebetto over Shammo, Dinan, Lucius and 17th-starter Cody Runion to round out the top five.

In the 15-lap dirt truck main, Ball would lead the first lap before Dible would drive around the high side to take the top spot a lap later. Dible would continue to lead with Ball and Steve Endicott putting on constant pressure. At times the three ran side by side battling for the lead.

As the race settled into a rhythm, Dible seemed to have it in control. But, with four laps remaining, Ball got up on the steering wheel and pulled along side Dible as the duo raced door to door the remaining laps with Ball squeaking out the narrow victory. Dible, 10th-starter Cory Ward, Shawn Valenti and 12th-starter Chuck Roelle would round out the top five.
