Jacobs continues hot ways, wins Attica Nationals; Shammo, Hall also take checkereds

By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006) – Lee Jacobs continued to be one of the hottest 410 sprint car drivers in Ohio, as he dominated the second night of the 2nd Annual Attica Summer Nationals Saturday at Attica Raceway Park.

Ludlow Falls, Ohio driver Luke Hall scored his first career sprint car victory by taking the 25-lap NRA 360 Sprint Invaders feature.

Andy Shammo rounded out the Kear’s Speedshop Open-Wheel Onslaught Night by claiming his second career Attica victory in the 305 sprint feature.

Jacobs, the son of legendary driver Kenny Jacobs, came into the weekend after winning the last two straight features at Fremont Speedway. He looked to continue that Friday, but an early race tangle put him on the tail from which he charged back from the tail to finish 6th. Saturday night, the Holmesville, Ohio driver was not to be denied as he led all 30 laps for the

“We have been so close all year to winning one here…it’s feels do good to finally reward this team with a victory at Attica,” said Jacobs beside his Burmeister #16. “This is a two and half year-old car. We’ve talked about getting a new one, but this thing handles so well. I’d rather we put it in a corner and if a new one doesn’t respond we can dig this one back out….we
know it’s a winner.”

Hall seemed in shock at the prosect of his first sprint car victory.

“I’m really in shock….I never thought we’d get a win this early in my career. This 360 deal is so tough, but we’ve been getting faster and faster every week. I have to thank Aestric Finishers and all my crew…they kept believing in me and here we are,” said Hall.

Shammo has run in the top five consistently all season in the tough 305 sprint division, but a win kept slipping through his grasps. Not Satuday, as he out-dueled cousins Ssott and Bill Kraylek for his second career Attica victory.

“We got to start up front and that’s huge in this tough division. We’ve made some changes to the car the last couple of weeks and it’s responding,” said Shammo beside his K-S Sales and Service, Fort Ball Pizza sponsored #48s.

In the 410 sprint main, Jacobs jumped into the early lead from his pole starting spot, with Keith Baxter, Caleb Griffith, Rodney Duncan and Kyle Cummins in tow. The only caution would fly on lap eight, wiping out a half-track lead for Jacobs. On the restart, the battle heated up for second between Baxter and Griffith, with the later gaining the advantage on lap 10. Current point leader Byron Reed had moved from his eighth starting spot to fourth by lap 11.

While Jacobs checked out the crowd kept a close eye on the runner-up spot, with Griffith, Baxter, Reed and 12th starting John Ivy staging a wicked battle. At the half-way mark, Jacobs would lead over Griffith, Ivy, Reed and Baxter. While Baxter would begin to fade, Ivy would move into the runner-up spot on lap 16 with Griffith and Reed in tow.

Jacobs would cruise to the win over a closing Ivy, Reed, Griffith and 11th starting Craig Mintz rounding out the top 5.
n the NRA 360 Sprint Invaders 25-lap feature, Lima’s Dennis Yoakam would assume the early lead, with Jeff Williams, Hall and Mike Dussell in tow. On lap 8, Williams would take the top spot from Yoakam with Hall and Williams in tow. Hall would utilized the high side to gravethe lead on lap 11, will Williams, Yoakam, Greg Wilson and Dussell following. Hall would grab the top spot a lap later and would build a sizeable lead until lapped traffic allowed Rob Chaney to close.

However, Hall would take the checkered with Chaney, Wilson, Williams and Dussell rounding out the top 5.

Bill Kraylek would grab the early lead in the 305 sprint feature, with Shammo, Scott Kraylek and Mark Whaley in tow. By lap 8, the battle between Bill and Scott Kraylek and Shammo heated up, with Shammo taking the lead on lap 11.Will Kraylek would continue to run second and hounded Shammo until lap 23 when Scott Kraylek would get around and put pressure on Shammo the last two laps.

At the checkered, Shammo would help his batle for the 2006 track title with Scott Kraylek, 14th starting Dustin Dinan, Bill Kraylek and Whaley rounding out the top five.
