FREMONT, Ohio – The 2011
racing season has been a memorable one at Fremont Speedway. The racing
action has been exciting during the track’s 60th anniversary and the champions
in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints, Fremont Federal Credit Union
305 Sprints and Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks will be crowned Saturday, Oct.
The battle for the 410 sprint
title could literally come down to the last lap on Kistler Racing Products
Night. Bryan Sebetto has had one of the most talked about summers of racing
as anyone in recent history. The Fremont native has four feature wins at
Fremont, including holding off two time All Star champion Tim Shaffer to
win the Jim Ford Classic recently. He holds a slim five point lead over
three time Fremont champion Byron Reed who has three victories at the track
in 2011. Sebetto, who also claimed two feature wins at Attica Raceway Park
in 2011, also won the Kistler Racing Products Fremont Attica Sprint Title
championship. Dean Jacobs, the 2011 Attica track champion, is also within
striking distance, just 16 points out, while defending Fremont champion
Craig Mintz is 47 points back.
In the 305 sprints, defending
and two time Fremont champion Stuart Brubaker has two feature wins in 2011
and holds a 25 point advantage over two time track champion Paul Weaver
who also has a pair of Fremont victories this season. Paige Polyak, who
scored the 305/360 sprint challenge victory in 2011, is only 40 points
In the dirt trucks, 73-year-old
Art Ball is looking for his first title in the division. The Tiffin resident
has two late model track championships in the 1970s, and scored his 71st
career Fremont feature win in 2011 to add to his all-time win list advantage
at the track. Four time and defending track champion Steve Sabo is only
seven markers behind Ball, while 2011 Attica champion Bob Dible sits just
25 points back thanks to his pair of feature wins at Fremont. Former champion
Cory Ward, who has a feature win in 2011, is 32 points out.
Gates will open at 4 p.m.
and racing gets underway at 7 p.m. as the battle concludes to wear the
coveted Fremont Speedway crown.
