FREMONT, Ohio (June 12, 2022) – For the second time in just five Series starts, Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so during night three of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires at Fremont Speedway. Wise, earning $6,000 for his Chuck and Shirley Kear Classic triumph, started from the outside-pole position and never looked back, eventually leading all 30 circuits around “The Track That Action Built” while outrunning current Speedweek points leader, Cap Henry.

“Since joining the All Stars, this is a track that’s always treated me really well. It feels good to be up here standing in front of all of these great fans…there are so many people here,” Zeb Wise explained, driver of the Wise-Priddy Racing/Sundollar Restoration/QuikPits/No. 10 sprint car. “My car was so good tonight. Hats off to everyone back there in the pit area…Wayne, Derrick, Connor, Dad…they worked their butts off.”

The main event’s lone caution on lap seven, a red flag situation for Kyle Reinhardt who was third at the time of his easy tip over, resulted in Zeb’s only momentum break, which, inevitably, led to a long stretch of traffic that lasted the entire back half of the 30-lap contest. Despite his run in with slower cars, Zeb’s preferred line around the top of the speedway kept his nose clean, sealing the deal in the final five circuits by keeping a pair of lappers between himself and Henry.

Including Fremont, Wise is now a four-time All Star winner over the course of his young career, two of which accomplished right down the road at Attica Raceway Park.

“I’m not sure how close Henry was there at the end. Traffic got pretty wild and I couldn’t go where I wanted,” Wise continued. “Lucky for me, my car was good enough that I could go wherever I wanted. I wasn’t sure I had the car to win, and I was a little worried there after the dash. I thought the ‘4’ car was the car to beat, but we were able to come out on top.”

In traditional back-to-back fashion, Ohio Sprint Speedweek will move east and invade Wayne County Speedway and Sharon Speedway on Monday and Tuesday, June 13-14, respectively. The northeast Ohio venues, each awarding $6,000 during Speedweek action, hosted All Star competition on one occasion already in 2022. “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg was the victor at Wayne County with Lane Racing’s Cap Henry stealing the show at Sharon, utilizing a last corner pass to secure the Buckeye Cup title over Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks.
