FREMONT, Ohio - Nothing says
spring time in Northwest Ohio like the roar of
racing engines emanating
from the historical Sandusky County Fairgrounds in
the heart of Fremont, Ohio.
Fremont Speedway kicks off its 58th year of
racing Saturday, April 18,
as Pepsi Night presents the Fort Ball Pizza
Palace 410 Sprints; Fremont
Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints; and the
Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks.
The 2009 season promises
to be more exciting than ever, as not only will
"The Track That Action Built"
crown its own champions in each division, but
soon the Kistler Race Products
FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title)
Championship Series will
begin. The FAST series offers 11 point races each
at Fremont Speedway and
Attica Raceway Park and with the Kistler FAST Cup
champion walking away with
$10,000 in money and contingency products.
The big questions coming
into the 2009 season are:
- Can Byron Reed continue
his dominance in Northwest Ohio 410 sprint car
racing having won the last
two track championships at Fremont Speedway and
the last four at Attica?
- Can Stuart Brubaker repeat
his 2008 championships in the Fremont Federal
Credit Union 305 Sprints
at Fremont and the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints at
Attica? Or will one of the
many sophomore year drivers or the great field of
veteran drivers step up
- Who will win the "rookie
of the year" award at Fremont Speedway with a
talented crop including
Duane Zablocki, Sheldon Haudenschild, Mitch Harble,
Kevin Lee and more?
- Can Clyde, Ohio's Jim McGrath
repeat as the Fremont Fence Dirt Truck
champion at Fremont or will
the track's all-time career feature winner Art
Ball get the title or can
Cory Ward come back from his 2007 championship to
- Who will be the surprise
in each of the three competitive divisions?
- What "travelers" might
the fans see at Fremont Speedway with its rich
purse and the Kistler Race
Products FAST Championship Series as incentives?
The answer to these and many
more questions will be played out over the
summer at "The Track That
Gates will open Saturday
at 4 p.m. with racing action heating up at 7 p.m.
Admission is $12 for adults;
$10 for senior citizens; $6 for teens ages
11-16; and kids 10 and under
get in free. Pit passes are $25.
"We know the economy has
had a tremendous impact on everyone and we worked
hard over the winter to
form great marketing partners with the business
community so we could keep
our ticket prices unchanged from last year," said
Fremont Speedway Promoter
