to host NST stars Saturday
By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio (Monday, July 17, 2006) - A full day of fun and racing
is planned at Fremont Speedway Saturday, July 22, as the big guns of the
National Sprint Tour come to battle the always tough Fremont stars.
Prior to the race, from 2-4 p.m., many drivers will be on hand at an
autograph signing session at the 4-H building in the Sandusky County Fairgrounds.
At 3 p.m. a special charity auction conducted by Brubaker Auctions, Vicki
Brubaker, Realtor/auctioneer, will take place with lots of racing items
on the auction block. Proceeds will go to the "Cookie" Coles double lung
transplant fund. There will be die-cast cars, autographed race car items
including t-shirts, hats, flags, prints, driver's donated parts and lots
Besides the big purse - $10,000 to win - Callies Performance Products
of Fostoria, Ohio is sponsoring the $300 Fast Time Award.
Earlier this year former World of Outlaws champion and multi-time Knoxville
Raceway champion and current NST point leader Danny "The Dude" Lasoski
from Dover, Mo., claimed the NST win at "The Track That Action Built."
However, "The King," Steve Kinser has gotten hot lately, picking up two
NST wins in the past week. You can't count out Paul McMahan who wheels
the Tony Stewart owned #20, or Clovis, California's Jason Myers, Washington's
Jason Solwold, Oklahoma's Shane Stewart, Tennessee's Jason Sides, San Jose,
California hot shoe Tim Kaeding or Pennsylvania's Brian Paulus.
They will have their hands full with the likes of three-time Fremont
feature winner and current point leader Mike Linder; the "Monclova Missile"
Byron Reed; Lee "The Snowman" Jacobs, John "Poison" Ivy, Phil "The Gas
Man" Gressman; "Super" Dave Harrison; Mark Keegan (58 career Fremont feature
wins) and the other tough weekly racers.
To better accommodate race fans, Fremont Speedway has added more general
admission seating arrangements for the Short Track Shoot-Out National Sprint
Tour presented by Budweiser.
Reserved seating will still be available in the top four rows of Section
A in the covered grandstands (closest to turn 1); the top seven rows of
the covered grandstands in Section B (middle); and the top 10 rows of Section
C in the covered grandstands (closest to flag stand). The bottom six rows
in Section A and the bottom three rows in Section B of the covered grandstands
will be general admission seating.
In the open bleachers, the top three rows (Sections D, E & F, closest
to the flag stand) will be reserved seating, as will the top two rows closer
to turn four (sections G, H & I). The rest of the open bleachers will
be general admission.
All reserve seats are $30 each (add $2 process fee if using Visa or
MasterCard) and may be obtained by calling the track office at 419-862-2206.
To sit in a reserve section you must purchase a reserve ticket regardless
