Kelly Kinser dominates Attica sprints

By Brian Liskai: Attica, Ohio (Friday, Aug. 4, 2006) – Kelly Kinser made the right adjustments to his sprint car as he dominated the 410 feature at Attica Raceway Park on Burns Electric Night Presents Family Fun Night.

Scott Kraylek waited to show his hand until the last lap as he took the lead from Kevin Lee and went on to take the big payout in the 305 sprints,claiming the $1,500 top prize in the 305 Engine Builders Challenge. It was Kraylek’s second win in as many weeks at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” venue.

Defending and four-time Attica track champion Larry Kingseed doubled up in the limited late models, winning the make-up feature from July 21 and then the regular night’s feature event. It marked Kingseed’s fourth and fifth feature wins of the season at ARP.

Bellevue’s Cory Ward led all 15 laps of the dirt truck main to claim his first career feature win.

“I had forgotten they run a Goodyear spec tire here on their weekly shows…I thought I might be in trouble,” said Kinser beside his Crone Lumber/Kinser Timber sponsored #4k. “We just keep adjusting on her all night and she responded.”

“I cried and cried to my engine builder (O’Flaherty Engines) this past week. We just didn’t have the horsepower some of these other guys had…my engine was tired. He freshened it up for me this week and it made a world of difference,” said Kraylek beside his Lincoln Mortgage Beckensun Trucking sponsored #21. “I made up my mind on that last restart I was going up top, but I didn’t want to show my hand too soon…but when I saw the white I knew I had to get up there and run’er wide open.”

“We put a freshened this old cast-ironed Smith Automotive engine last night and it paid off,” said Kingseed beside his Strawberry Hill/John M. Allen Company sponsored #21. “I have to thank my wife and kids for all they sacrifice so I can do this and my crew for working so hard.”

“This is awesome…to finally get a win in this tough division. I have to thank my dad (Jim)….he started racing this truck while I was in the other one and when I had trouble, he stepped out and let me in his truck and here we are,” said Ward on his first career victory beside his Budweiser/Excuses Lounge sponsored #18w.

In the 410 sprint 30-lap main, it was pole-sitter Craig Mintz who jumped into the lead, with outside front row starter Kinser tucking right in on his bumper. Kinser would utilize his familiar bottom groove to drive under Mintz and into the lead a circuit later, with Todd Kane and Mike Linder in tow. Kane would move around Mintz into the runner-up slot on lap five, but Mintz would return the favor five laps later.

At the halfway mark, Bloomington, Indiana’s Kinser had checked out, but the action for second through sixth was exciting, as Mintz, Linder, Kane, Bryan Scott, Phil Gressman and Lee Jacobs swapping those positions at nearly every lap.

Kinser would score his fifth career ARP victory in the non-stop event, with Mintz settling for second, Linder third, and Scott and Jacobs rounding out the top five.

In the 305 Engine Builders’ Challenge (O’Flaherty Engines, Hampshire Engines, Gressman Powersports, Griff’s Engines and Levell Performance), Tiffin’s Coty Runion jumped into the early lead and looked strong through the early going, with Mark Whaley, Mark Pridemore and Kevin Lee in tow. The first caution would fly on lap 12 with the running order Runion, Lee, Kraylek (up from sixth starting spot), Whaley, Brad Bowman, Dustin Keegan, Andy Shammo and Paul Weaver. On the restart, Runion could not shake Lee, who executed the perfect slide job in turn four to take the top spot on lap 15.

The caution would fly again on lap 16 with the running order Lee, Runion, Kraylek, Shammo and Weaver. When the green flew again, Weaver went to the high side to move into fourth and was challenging for third when he spun in turn four on lap 18. Lee would continue to lead, with Kraylek moving into second, followed by Runion, Shammo and Bryan Sebetto.

The running order would remain that way until the white flag flew. Kraylek would move to the rim of the track and drive around Lee to take the lead and the win, the 9th of his career at ARP, moving him into a tie for ninth on the 305 all-time win list. Behind Kraylek would be Lee, Shammo, Runion and Sebetto.

In the make-up limited late model feature, it became a survival of the fittest, as only 9 of the starting 20 finished the 20 laps which took 50 minutes to get in due to several crashes.

Bellevue’s Ryan Missler would jump into the early lead as Bill Hahn and Kingseed battled for second. Kingseed would dispose of Hahn by lap 7 and drive under Missler on lap 9 for the lead.

Kingseed would survive a couple of yellows and two reds to pick up the win, with Mike Bores, Missler, Jeff McCoy (up from 19th in Mike Marteneny’s #45) and Hahn rounding out the top five.

In the regular portion of the program, Bores would lead the first lap with Hahn, Kingseed and Tim Sabo battling behind his rear bumper. Kingseed would move around Hahn on the second lap and drive under Bores for the lead on lap three. He would survive two yellows to claim the win, his 21st career victory at ARP.

Behind Kingseed at the checkered were John Mayes Sr., Missler, Hahn and Sabo.

Pole-sitter Ward would jump into the lead of the dirt truck 15-lap feature, but he couldn’t shake Paul Dymond or last week’s winner Art Ball who hounded him until lap 12 when Dymond would spin. Ward would hold off several challenges from Ball over the last three laps for the win. Brian Arnold, Bob Dible and Ron Kepling would round out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be off Aug. 11 for the Attica Independent Fair. Racing will resume with the Second Annual Attica Summer Nationals on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 18 and 19. Friday’s show will feature the 410 winged sprints, 305 sprints and American Late Model Series. Saturday will be an all open-wheel affair as Kear’s Speedshop Presents the Open-Wheel Onslaught featuring the 410 sprints, NRA 360 sprints and 305 sprints.
