ATTICA, Ohio – As the 2020 racing season – impacted by COVID-19 – starts to wind down, tracks have worked tirelessly to schedule races. Attica Raceway Park added several races to the schedule after losing all of the events in March, April and May and continues to work hard to give race teams and fans opportunities including this weekend.
“Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant is scheduled for Kistler Racing Products/Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating presents the Mark Keegan Classic Season Championship Night Friday, Aug. 28 for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints, Fremont Fence 305 Sprints and the Propane.com/Dirt Nerds Podcast Late Models with double points on the line. If the event gets cancelled Attica Raceway Park will race on Saturday, Aug. 29 and will feature the 410 and 305 sprints and dirt trucks and it will be a non-points race. Should Friday’s event get cancelled, season championship night will be moved to Friday, Sept. 11.
“We are trying to give race teams more opportunities to compete. We’ve only had 11 races in 2020 and having a Saturday rain date gives teams more options to race,” said Rex LeJeune, Director of Operations at Attica Raceway Park.
