FREMONT, Ohio - The traditional
sprint cars - the fire-breathing,
mud-slinging brand WITHOUT
a wing - will once again roar around Fremont
Speedway as "The Track That
Action Built" is extending its season to include
this special event on Saturday,
The 410 non-wing sprints
will run a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to win
($250 to start).
To add to the excitement,
the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints will
also take the wings off
for the first time in their history at Fremont
"Many of the 305 drivers
had approached us about wanting to take the wings
off. We asked for a poll
at a drivers' meeting and an overwhelming majority
said they wanted to do it.
The fans have been clamoring for a non-wing race
at Fremont...it's been like
six years since USAC came here," said Fremont
Speedway Co-Promoter Rich
Farmer. "So we said 'why not give everyone an
exciting show' so we came
up with this non-wing spectacular."
"With all the rainouts, we
just didn't want to end the season on Sept. 20.
So we've added a non-wing
date at the end and we're really excited about
it," said Andy James, Fremont
Farmer said plans are in
the works to have a practice day at Fremont
Speedway for teams to get
the feeling for racing without that big wing.
"We hope this can become
a yearly event. I think the fans will really take
to the look and excitement
of the sprint cars backing it in at the flag
stand and throwing the clay,"
