CAMARGO, IL — (May 23rd, 2011) — The O’Reilly Auto Parts All Star
Circuit of Champion Sprint Cars will battle the tough Fremont Speedway
weekly competitors in a big Memorial Day weekend double-header at “The
Track That Action Built,” Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29.
Three-time All Star champion Dale Blaney will be looking to add to his All
Star point lead. “The Low Rider” leads the All Stars’ National points,
Eastern Region points and Ohio Region points. However, two-time series’
champion Tim Shaffer is ready to pounce should Blaney encounter any
problems. “The Steel City Outlaw” already scored a feature win at Fremont
this season. And you can’t count out young David Gravel, who comes into
Fremont following a third place run with the All Stars at Mercer Raceway
Add to the mix 2010 Lernerville Speedway champion Danny Holtgraver who sits
third in the All Stars’ Ohio Region points and the tough Fremont regulars
like three-time track champion Byron Reed who owns a victory at the track
this season, Bryan Sebetto who also scored a Fremont win, Dean Jacobs, Cole
Duncan, Kyle Sauder, Danny Smith, Kevin Lee, Greg Wilson and 2010 Fremont
champion Craig Mintz and you have a recipe for excitement.
And, there’s the possibility of some World of Outlaw drivers coming to
Fremont as the series will compete at “The Track That Action Built” in
October. The World of Outlaws race Friday at the Dirt Track at Charlotte,
N.C. and then travel to I-96 Speedway in Michigan on Monday, May 30.
Fremont Speedway will also dedicate its new hall of fame building on
Saturday, May 28 at 3:30 p.m. Kear’s Speed Shop Night is also “fan
appreciation” night with general admission tickets just $10 and teens (ages
11-16) at $6. The Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and Fremont
Fence & Guardrail Dirt Trucks will also be in action.
On Sunday, May 29, the All Stars will vie for $5,000 to win on McDonald’s
Night with the 305 sprints and dirt trucks battling for $1,000 to win their
respective features. Tickets are $20 for adults; $18 for senior citizens;
$10 for teens; and as always, kids 10 and under get in free. Gates will
open at 4 p.m. and racing gets underway at 7 p.m. There is a rain date for
these event set for Monday, May 30.
