by Chris Kettman, FAST Staff Writer

MAUMEE, OH (5-18-10) — The Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Championship Series presented by JE/SRP Pistons and Engine Pro wants to see you come out and show your support for your favorite local(s) when the World of Outlaws visit Attica Raceway Park Friday May 21st. The winner of the contest will be the fan with the best or most outrageous display of support for any member(s) of the “home team”. Up for grabs will be a F.A.S.T. prize pack including a 2010 F.A.S.T. t-shirt of your choice, a 2009 F.A.S.T. Series season recap DVD, a F.A.S.T. can coozie, and a set of FAST 410 and 305 stickers. To really “up the ante”, the good folks at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway will also provide the winner with one pair of tickets good for any F.A.S.T. night at both of the Northern OH speed plants.

Start making your plans – and costumes – now! Simply wearing a driver’s t-shirt and hat will not win this contest! Be creative! Go big! Show your pride for our local heroes as they battle the best in the business on Friday night. Contestants will be shown on Attica’s new video screen message center and fans will vote with applause for the best display of support for one of our local teams. Voting will take place after WoO qualifying and Late Model hot laps. Contestants should meet at the gate to the horse track behind the flag stand. Listen for announcements to be made over the P.A. system. Bring your college football spirit! Stay tuned for further details.

22 cars started the A-main event on Friday night at Attica with “track provisionals” allowing 2 extra teams into the feature to thank the teams for the large turn out. This is not the same as making it into the event as an “alternate”. The 2010 FAST rules state that no points are awarded to alternate starters in the A-main. The two additional starting spots were announced at the beginning of the evening and FAST Rules/Points allow for 21st and 22nd place points if needed for these situations (as has been noted in FAST rules since the inception of the series). Please refer to the rules/points page of the FAST web site for further clarification.
