ATTICA, Ohio – There are just a few races left at Attica Raceway Park before the World of Outlaws come calling to challenge the tough locals at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant. And the local drivers will be trying to stay in the track’s top 25 in points to be eligible for the bonuses being offered for the World of Outlaws event on June 1.
It all begins Friday, May 11 for the Sutton Bank Scouts Night. It is a Kistler Racing Products FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title) Championship night and Attica and Goodyear Tires have teamed up to pay the feature winner of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 410 Sprints $3,000. Attica will also start 22 cars in the A-main.
The Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models and Fremont Fence 305 Sprints will also be in competition.
All Scouts and their Scout leaders who wear their uniforms will get in free Friday as well and there will be vintage race cars on display.
The final tune-up before the Kistler Engines Classic with the World of Outlaws will be Merrill Lynch/All Pro Cylinder Heads Night, Friday, May 18. It will be another FAST event for the 410 sprints and the first FAST night for the 305 sprints. The UMP late models will also be in competition.
There is no racing at Attica on May 25.
When Steve Kinser, Donny Schatz, Sammy Swindell, Craig Dollansky, Joey Saldana and the rest of the Outlaws come to Attica to challenge the local drivers for the $10,000 payday, there are plenty of other bonus funds up for grabs. Any driver in the top 25 of Attica’s weekly point standings after that May 18 event who can take the win will get an additional $2,500. Should that driver also be in the top 10 of the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champion’s National point standings through May 27, there is another $1,000 bonus from that series.
Also, engine manufacturers Kistler Engines, Gressman Powersports and Level Performance are offering a $2,000 gift certificate if one of the Top-25 in Attica’s weekly point standings is running an engine built by one of those companies and wins the race. Also, All Pro Aluminum Heads is giving a $250 gift certificate if the race winner is using their engine heads.
Attica Raceway Park will also give the highest finisher in the A-Main that is in the track’s Top-25 in points a $500 bonus. If a driver in the Top-25 in points wins the race, then the second highest feature finisher in the Top-25 in points will get the $500 bonus.
