Fremont, OH — (May 5th, 2015) — After a total of four rounds of Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title ‘410’ Championship Series presented by KS Sales & Service competition, it is defending series champion Byron Reed still on top of the 2015 championship chase; holding a 23 point cushion over former series champion Craig Mintz. Reed, the most recent winner during F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship Series action, earned his 2014 title without visiting F.A.S.T. victory lane. The Monclova, Ohio native is already one win ahead of schedule with just four rounds in the books thus far in 2015, making the Ohio veteran an easy pick to defend his championship.

Foos over the course of 30-laps to secure himself a spot in victory lane. For Jacobs, it was his second F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship Series victory of 2015, and his second F.A.S.T. victory at Attica Raceway Park. Craig Mintz, D.J. Foos, Byron Reed and ‘410’ rookie Nate Dussel completed the top-five.
Round #4 of the 2015 F.A.S.T. ‘410’ Championship took shape on Saturday evening, May 2nd back at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio. It was Byron Reed who picked up the win on Saturday night; working through traffic during 30 non-stop feature laps to lock down his first win of the year under the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. banner. For a second night in a row, Craig Mintz would roll home second, with early race leader Cap Henry rounding out the podium. Chris Andrews and D.J.
