FREMONT, Ohio – Traditional
sprint car racing – non-wing excitement – will return to Fremont Speedway
on Sunday, Aug. 1. The race was originally to take place at Millstream
Speedway in Findlay, Ohio, as part of the eight-race, non-sanctioned, non-wing
series, but will now take place at “The Track That Action Built.”
“We simply have too much
work to do at Millstream and not enough time to get it done so we’ve moved
it to Fremont,” said race promoter Rich Farmer.
Tracks that have participated
in the special non-sanctioned series include Eldora Speedway, Gas City
Speedway and Waynesfield Motorsports Park.
Prior to the Aug. 1 race
at Fremont, the series will race at Eldora Speedway on Saturday, July 31
for a $2,000 to win event and a guaranteed spot in the Second Annual Jack
Hewitt Classic to be contested at Waynesfield on Aug. 7. Sunday’s race
at “The Track That Action Built,” will pay $2,500 to win and a guaranteed
spot in the Hewitt Classic as well.
Thanks to Hoosier Tire, there
is a point fund for the series. The Hoosier DT3 right rear tire will be
incorporated in all of the series’ events.
The addition of the non-wing
race at Fremont will be part of a double-header weekend at the historical
speedway. On Saturday, July 31, the winged Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints,
Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints and Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks
will compete on Kistler Engines Night, which will also be a Kistler Racing
Products FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title) Championship series night for
the 410 sprints and a FAST night, presented by Kear’s Speed Shop and Cleveland
Golf, for the 305 sprints.
On Sunday, joining the non-wing
sprint cars will be the dirt trucks combined with the stock cars.
Gates will open both nights
at Fremont Speedway at 4 p.m. with racing underway at 7 p.m.
