FREMONT, Ohio – With so much on the line this weekend at Fremont Speedway – the Kistler Racing Products Fremont Attica Sprint Title (FAST) Championship and its $10,000 top prize – track promoter Rich Farmer has decided to add a rain date of Sunday, Sept. 11.
Action is set for Sunbelt Rentals Night and the FAST championship for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints for Saturday, Sept. 10. But just in case Mother Nature has other ideas – the forecast is calling for a chance of showers and thunderstorms – the Sunday make-up date has been added.
“There just aren’t a lot of opportunities left to make up events and with all that’s on the line for this race, we wanted to give the race teams and fans every chance to get this race in,” said Farmer.
“Our FAST season has come down to the final event with three contenders who have a legitimate shot at the $10,000 championship and we hope this can be settled on the track in an exciting finish to our season and not have Mother Nature determine the champion,” said FAST organizer Bryan “Swamp” Autullo.
Also in competition Saturday will be the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints who will be compete in double features due to an earlier season rain-out. The Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks will also be battling door-to-door.
Gates will open Saturday at 4 p.m. with racing underway at 7 p.m. Should Sunday’s make-up date have to be used, gates will open at 3 p.m. with racing underway at 5:30 p.m.
The state is set for one of the most intriguing championship nights in the three-year history of the FAST Championship Series presented by Engine Pro & PAC Valve Springs. After back-to-back visits to the Engine Pro Victory Lane at Attica Raceway Park, Bryan Sebetto has vaulted into the lead by a slim 13-points over veteran Dean Jacobs. And, sitting just 32 points back in third is defending FAST champion and three-time Fremont titlest Byron Reed who has finished in the top five in every FAST event at “The Track That Action Built” this season and has two series’ victories.
