FREMONT, Ohio – The racing
in the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprints has been very competitive
and exciting at Fremont Speedway during the 2011 season. There have been
nine different winners in the 12 events and all are looking to make it
a big pay day on Sunday, Sept. 4 for the 12th Annual 305 Sprint Invitational
on Hoys Night.
Claiming wins in 2011 are
Bobby Clark, D.J. Foos and Zack Kramer, each with two wins, while Dean
Jacobs, current point leader Stuart Brubaker, Paul Weaver, Nate Dussel,
Jimmy Colvin and Paige Polyak each have one.
They, along with the likes
of Dustin Dinan, John Ivy, and a host of others will be vying for the $2,500
first place prize – one of the richest events in the nation for 305 sprint
Past winners of the 305 invite
are: 2000 - Bobby Foster; 2001- Bryan Scott; 2002 - Roger Shammo; 2003
- Scott Miller; 2004 - Paul Weaver; 2006 - Paul Weaver; 2007 - Andy Shammo;
2008 - Todd Heuerman; 2009 - John Ivy; and 2010, Bryan Sebetto.
"Jim Ford created this race
as a way to thank the 305 teams who supported him week in and week out.
We will continue that tradition as this division is one of the most competitive
in the country," said Fremont Speedway Promoter Rich Farmer.
The format for the 305 invite
offers the teams a unique night of racing.
The drivers will qualify
- the only time they do this all year - one lap which will determine their
heat race line-ups. The top eight qualifiers who transfer to the feature
out of their heats will compete in a "King of the Hill" match race where
two cars will run two laps with the winner moving to the next round until
there is one champion who will start on the pole of the feature.
Also in competition will
be the wheel-hiking late models and door-banging Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks,
who will be competing in double features as they make up a rained out event
from July in addition to their regular night of racing.
Gates will open at 4 p.m.
with racing underway at 7 p.m.
