ATTICA, Ohio (March 23, 2018) – Ohio Logistics, based in Findlay, Ohio, uses the tag line “The Smart Move.” When the Brad Doty Classic teamed up with Ohio Logistics – one of the most successful privately held logistics firms in the Midwest – it was a very “smart move” as the combination has made the sprint car racing event one of the crown jewels of the sport.

The 30th Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics hits the track at Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 10 (rain date of Wednesday, July 11) featuring the best sprint car drivers in the world. The 2017 Brad Doty Classic had 58 drivers compete for the $10,000 top prize, which was the largest single day car count of the season for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

The Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic returned to Attica Raceway Park in 2016 following a 10 year run at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio. The event originated at ARP in 1989.

Last year’s Brad Doty Classic was a thriller as Watertown, Connecticut’s David Gravel executed a perfect slider on Tim Shaffer coming to the white flag and drove to his first ever victory in the event.

Ohio Logistics has been a partner with the Brad Doty Classic for 11 years. The company provides innovative warehousing, distribution and transportation services to clients with local or global logistic requirements.

“I really can’t thank Chuck Bills (President and CEO of Ohio Logistics) and his family along with all the employees of Ohio Logistics enough for all the support. They are true partners in the Brad Doty Classic and have helped make this race one of the premiere events on the World of Outlaws schedule,” said Brad Doty, co-promoter of the race.

“Ohio Logistics has been a business partner at Attica for several years and we’re excited they are back as the title sponsor of our track’s premiere event,” said Rex LeJeune, Director of Operations at Attica Raceway Park.

This year will mark the 14th consecutive season the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series have sanctioned the Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics. There have been 22 different winners in the 27 contested Brad Doty Classic features (2 have been rained out).
