FREMONT, Ohio – FAST Top Story Logo Just three events are left for the FAST 410 teams and two for the FAST 305 race teams.

“This weekend presents great opportunities for some teams to either close the point gaps or for others to put an exclamation point on the title chase. It’s going to be a great weekend of racing,” said Rich Farmer, FAST President.

The FAST 410 teams will be part of the two-day Attica Ambush this weekend, competing for $5,000 to win on Kistler Engines Night, Friday, Sept. 1 at AtticaRacewayPark. With the Dirt Classic Ohio $10,000 to win event on Saturday, Sept. 2 at Attica, several big name drivers could battle the FAST stars on Friday.

The FAST 410 series then heads to the bull ring of WaynesfieldRacewayPark in Waynesfield, Ohio on Sunday, Sept. 3 in a make-up affair from the Summer Sprint Sizzler on July 3 when rains fell during qualifications. Over 90 winged sprint cars were in attendance on July 3 as the Great Lakes Sprint Series and National Racing Alliance 360 sprints joined the FAST 410 and FAST 305 sprints. It will be the first ever appearance of the FAST 410 sprints as they battle for $3,000 to win. The GLSS/NRA sprints will battle for $4,000 to win.
