ATTICA, Ohio – Ohio Logistics is one of the most successful privately held logistics firms in the Midwest. When you team Ohio Logistics up with one of the most successful sprint car races in the Midwest, it’s a combination that brings world wide attention and excitement.

 

The 29th Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics hits the track at Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 11 (rain date of Wednesday, July 12) featuring the best sprint car drivers in the world from the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

 

The Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic returned to AtticaRacewayPark in 2016 following a 10 year run at LimalandMotorsportsPark in Lima, Ohio. The event originated at ARP in 1989. A standing-room only crowd witnessed Fargo, North Dakota’s Donny Schatz drive from a 15th starting spot to claim the $10,000 win last July.

There are drivers who would rank a win in this event as one of their greatest accomplishments and it’s because of the support of our partners like Ohio Logistics. I can’t thank Chuck and Ohio Logistics enough and I couldn’t be happier that they have chosen to continue their involvement with us,” said Brad Doty, co-promoter of the race.
