ATTICA, Ohio – Ray Brooks of Ken Gill Construction started a sprint car team in 2021 and when it came time to put a number on his sprint cars, Brooks chose the number “18” in honor of Brad Doty. Brooks and Gill Construction are once again honoring Doty as the title sponsor of all heat races for the 34th Annual Ohio Logistics Brad Doty Classic Presented by Racing Optics. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series heads to Attica Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 12 for the Brad Doty Classic.

Gill Construction was the title sponsor for the Last Chance Showdown for the Brad Doty Classic in 2021. Brooks’ other business – CK Mechanical llc – will be the presenting sponsor of the Last Chance Showdown in 2022 with Gill Construction moving to be the heat race sponsor.

“Ray Brooks has been involved in racing as a car and team sponsor for several years before becoming the car owner of the 18 car driven by Cole Macedo. He and his companies, Gill Construction and CK Mechanical, have also become a big part of our race in the last few years and all of us at Attica Raceway Park appreciate everything he does for not only our event but for being a great car owner as well,” said Brad Doty, Co-Promoter of the event.

Brooks race team with Macedo behind the wheel, as two feature wins in 2022 – one at Attica – as of press time and leads the Attica Raceway Park and Attica Fremont Championship Series points. In the last three events at Attica, Macedo has placed in the top three in each.
