Ohio (June 4) - Fremont Speedway promoter Jim Ford has
announced several changes to the 2002 schedule.
The All Star Circuit of Champions will try for the third
time in 2002 to compete at "The Track That Action
Built" on Saturday, June 8. This make-up show is
sponsored by Wilhelm Auto Parts and will pay $5,000 to
win for the All Star Sprints. It promises to be highly
competitive show...in fact, there have been nine different
winners in the last nine All Star shows at Fremont.
The 305 sprints and dirt trucks will also be in competition
on June 8.
Also, the Budweiser 40, which was rained out on May 25,
will be run on Tuesday, July 2, when Fremont hosts the

will pay $6,000 to win and $500 to start. The dirt trucks
will also be on the racing card.
The fifth leg of the All Star Ohio Sprint Speedweek will
