For the second year in a row, the organizers of the Fremont/Attica Sprint Title in cooperation with the promoters of Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway are offering a $1000 cash bonus to any FAST Series driver who can win the Ohio Sprint Speedweek points title. If one of the F.A.S.T. regulars cannot take the top spot, a $500 Bonus will be paid to the highest finishing F.A.S.T. regular for the week. If a F.A.S.T. driver does win the Ohio Speedweek title and the $1000 bonus, the $500 will be awarded to the second highest F.A.S.T. driver in the week’s standings. Points will be based on the All Star’s Ohio Speedweek points system which awards 100 points to the winner of each event and is reduced by 1 point per position through the entire field (including B-main and C-main). No show up points are calculated for determining Ohio Speedweek points.
Fremont promoter Rich Farmer and Attica promoter John Bores both stepped up to the plate in 2010 to put up the cash for this bonus as a reward for the support these teams have shown their tracks this season. “I think the FAST Series has been great for our local drivers and we want to see these teams support Ohio Speedweek and compete with the drivers from other areas around Ohio as well as give the All Stars a run for the money each night,” said Farmer. “Ohio Speedweek has always been one of the biggest weeks of sprint car racing in the State of Ohio and we would like to see these guys take it seriously and go compete each night if they are able to and show the fans across the state what we get to see each weekend at Attica and Fremont,” he added.
Rules of eligibility for the Ohio Speedweek cash bonus:
1. Driver must have competed in all F.A.S.T. Series points events through June 12, 2010.
2. Driver must have Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Series decal on both side panels of the top wing for each event throughout the week. (See a F.A.S.T. Series rep for decals if needed.)
Drivers who are eligible for the Ohio Speedweek cash bonus are:
Byron Reed, Brock Mayes, Mark Keegan, Phil Gressman, Craig Mintz, Kevin Lee, Chris Andrews, Jody Keegan, Bryan Sebetto, Brandon Martin, David Harrison, Todd Heller, Mike Linder, Brian Smith, Shawn Valenti, and Duane Zablocki
Ohio Sprint Speedweek is 9 days of sanctioned All Star Circuit of Champions events starting this Friday (June 18th) at Attica Raceway Park paying $5,000 to win and ending a week from saturday (June 26th) at Fremont Speedway for the $10,000 to win finale. The week of events are to be held at the following tracks across the state of Ohio. Attica Raceway Park (6/18), KC Raceway (6/19), Millstream Speedway (6/20), Wayne County Speedway (6/21), Hilltop Speedway (6/22), Waynsefield Motorsports Park (6/23), Sharon Speedway (6/24), Limaland Motorsports Park (6/25), Fremont Speedway (6/26).
There is enough talent in Northern Ohio to go out and win the Ohio Sprint Speedweek title if any of the eligible teams should choose to run the full 9 night schedule. The FAST organization wishes these teams the best of luck in defending their turf and showing the fans in Ohio what we are lucky enough to see around here on a weekly basis.
