Reed, Weaver, Kingseed score Attica openers

By Brian Liskai: (Friday, 31 March 2006) In the 25-lap 305 feature, Miller jumped into the lead from his outside front row starting spot, with Duane Zablocki battling him hard the opening laps, and Weaver in third. On lap 10, Weaver went high and Miller went low around the lapped car of rookie Benny Bowman, making contact and sending Bowman flipping into the front stretch wall. Bowman, whose helmet flew off during the crash, was bruised but otherwise okay. On the restart, Miller again built a sizeable lead, only to watch it fade away as he got into lapped traffic. Weaver used the slower cars as a pick and drove around the high side of Miller on lap 19, with Miller making contact with the lapped traffic and stopping on the track, ending his run.

Weaver cruised to the win over Andy Shammo who held off a fast closing Chris Andrews, Kevin Lee, Stuart Brubaker, Bill Kraylek, Brad Bowman, Todd Heuerman, Scott Kraylek and Dustin Dinan.

“I tried the bottom a few times because I figured I couldn’t move Jamie (Miller) off the top. We got into lapped traffic and he went low and I stayed up top and it worked. Then it was a matter of the car handling so much better in clean air,” said Weaver beside his Weaver-Koonce Construction/Levell Performance Engines #1W.

Kingseed jumped into the early lead of the limited late model main, only to see last year’s Attica rookie of the year Ryan Missler take it away four laps later. The battle heated up when Mike Marteney joined the fray. Missler would drop out with mechanical problems – which befell many of the cars in the feature – handing the lead back to Kingseed. Marteney would exit a few laps later with mechanical woes. Meanwhile, the 2004 ARP champion, Chester Fitch had stayed out of trouble and was charging through the pack from his tail starting spot. Kingseed would score the win, with Fitch finishing second, followed by Josh Steinacker, Jeff McCoy, Chris Keller, Art Ball, Chuck Hummer, Bill Clapp Jr., Steve Sabo and Nate Potts, as only 10 cars were left from the 20 car field at the checkered.

“I just tried to hit my marks…the car was very driveable so I could get around traffic,” said Kingseed beside his Strawberry Hill Farm Market #21. “This old cast-iron motor still has a lot of life left in it.”

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, April 7, with the 410 sprints, 305 sprints and limited late models in action. In case of rain, Saturday, April 8 is the raindate.

By Brian Liskai: ATTICA, Ohio (March 2, 2006) – The racing action in Northwest Ohio is second to none in the United States. And the purse at Attica Raceway Park for 2006 will reflect that high caliber of competition.

“We are very encouraged by the support we’ve received from the many sponsors who have signed on as business partners in 2006,” said ARP Director of Operations, Rex LeJeune.

“With this support and continued great support from the fans, Attica is anticipating one of the most exciting racing seasons in the 19 year history of the track,” said LeJeune.

“Between Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway, race teams and fans have a great opportunity to enjoy an entertaining and exciting weekend of action,” added Bores, noting the two tracks are within 40 miles of each other.

Mix together that great fan support, the backing from the business community and some of most entertaining weekly racing in the country, and you have a recipe for fun and excitement!

LeJeune said the weekly purse at Attica Raceway Park will pay the winner of the 410 sprint feature $2,500, with the A-main paying $250 to start. The highly competitive 305 sprint division will pay $500 to win the A-main, with $120 to start. The battling limited late models will compete for $500 to win each week and $75 to start the A-main. The three division weekly payoff totals $20,925.
