FREMONT, Ohio - The Sunoco
American Late Model Series 2008 championship will
be decided at Fremont Speedway,
Saturday, Sept. 13 when the wheel-hiking,
ground-pounding super late
models visit "The Track That Action Built."
Clark Lake, Michigan's Brian
Ruhlman - the 2005 and 2007 ALMS champion -
currently leads the UMP
DIRTcar Racing-sanctioned tour point standings by
just 18 points ahead of
Jackson, Michigan's Rusty Schlenk. Schlenk beat
Ruhlman for the 2006 ALMS
title by just five points. Rusty Seaver is 107
points back in third. The
rest of the top 10 includes Tyler Boggs, 4th;
Jerry Bowersock, 5th; Ky
Harper, 6th; Ryan Vanderveen, 7th; Dusty Moore,
8th; Mat Miller, 9th; and
Casey Noonan, 10th.
The ALMS last visited Fremont
Speedway in 2006 with Jeep Van Wormer and
Schlenk taking the victories.
"We're very excited the ALMS
title will be decided at Fremont. Brian Ruhlman
and Rusty Schlenk have battled
for the series title the past three years and
are locked in a tight battle
this year. It should be an entertaining night
of racing," said Fremont
Speedway Promoters Rich Farmer and Andy James.
"We're expecting a very
large field of top late models."
Ludwig Propane will sponsor
the night's action which includes the Fremont
Federal Credit Union 305
Sprints and Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks. The coveted
Fremont Speedway champions
in the 305 sprints and trucks is very close as
well, with Stuart Brubaker
holding a slim 14 point advantage over Kevin Lee
and Jim McGrath holding
only a 1-point lead over Cory Ward in the trucks.
Gates will open at 4 p.m.
with racing underway at 7 p.m.
