Stars have big double-header weekend at Fremont
By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio – The O’Reilly
Auto Parts All Star Circuit of Champion Sprint Cars will battle the tough
Fremont Speedway weekly competitors in a big Memorial Day weekend double-header
at “The Track That Action Built,” Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29.
Three-time All Star champion
Dale Blaney will be looking to add to his All Star point lead. “The Low
Rider” leads the All Stars’ National points, Eastern Region points and
Ohio Region points. However, two-time series’ champion Tim Shaffer is ready
to pounce should Blaney encounter any problems. “The Steel City Outlaw”
already scored a feature win at Fremont this season. And you can’t count
out young David Gravel, who comes into Fremont following a third place
run with the All Stars at Mercer Raceway Park.
Add to the mix 2010 Lernerville
Speedway champion Danny Holtgraver who sits third in the All Stars’ Ohio
Region points and the tough Fremont regulars like three-time track champion
Byron Reed who owns a victory at the track this season, Bryan Sebetto who
also scored a Fremont win, Dean Jacobs, Cole Duncan, Kyle Sauder, Danny
Smith, Kevin Lee, Greg Wilson and 2010 Fremont champion Craig Mintz and
you have a recipe for excitement.
And, there’s the possibility
of some World of Outlaw drivers coming to Fremont as the series will compete
at “The Track That Action Built” in October. The World of Outlaws race
Friday at the Dirt Track at Charlotte, N.C. and then travel to I-96 Speedway
in Michigan on Monday, May 30.
Fremont Speedway will also
dedicate its new hall of fame building on Saturday, May 28 at 3:30 p.m.
Kear’s Speed Shop Night is also “fan appreciation” night with general admission
tickets just $10 and teens (ages 11-16) at $6. The Fremont Federal Credit
Union 305 Sprints and Fremont Fence & Guardrail Dirt Trucks will also
be in action.
On Sunday, May 29, the All
Stars will vie for $5,000 to win on McDonald’s Night with the 305 sprints
and dirt trucks battling for $1,000 to win their respective features. Tickets
