FREMONT, Ohio - For the second week in a row, Gibsonburg, Ohio’s Nate Dussel was passed for the lead in the middle of the 410 sprint feature but his perseverance allowed him to make a race-winning pass late in the feature on Industrial Resourcing Group Night. This time, Dussel passed Cale Conley as the pair took the white flag to win the Ti22 FAST event. In the MPD BOSS non-wing main, Fenton Michigan’s Steve Irwin took the lead on a lap 14 restart and eventually ran unchallenged for his first ever Fremont Speedway win. In the 305 sprints, Paul Weaver passed Dustin Stroup with four laps remaining to claim his fifth win of the season. Jamie Miller took the lead on lap six of the Dirt Truck feature and scored his third win on the year.

For Dussel, the track’s 2020 Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint champion it was his third victory of the season and the 28th of his career at “The Track That Action Built. Weaver earned his 64th career win at Fremont, putting him just one behind Shawn Valenti for second on the track’s all time win list with 64 victories. Miller now has 26 career wins at Fremont.

Troy Vaccaro and Nate Dussel brought the FAST on Dirt feature to the green flag. Dussel jumped to the early lead with Cole Macedo taking the runner-up spot on lap three. Macedo would then suffer mechanical issues, bringing out the caution. Fourth-starter Cale Conley would pass Vaccaro for second and run down Dussel for the lead. DJ Foos would take the third spot from Vaccaro and 7th starting Lee Jacobs followed suit to take fourth. In the closing laps, Dussel reeled Conley back in before making the winning pass. Conley would take the runner-up position over Lee Jacobs, 13th-starting Trey Jacobs, and Foos.

Carmen Perigo led Steven Irwin for the first 13 laps of the BOSS non-wing sprint feature before Irwin made his winning pass. Mike Miller and Matt Westfall ran third and fourth nearly the entire race. Jesse Vermilion had a steady charge through the field to finish fifth, after starting 12th.

Steve Rando led the opening laps of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 sprint feature before being passed by front row mate Dustin Stroup. Paul Weaver would supplant Rando for second and would take the lead on lap 15, but a caution would negate his pass. It would take Weaver six more laps to find a line around Stroup for the win. Stroup held onto second over Jamie Miller, Rando, and 11th starting Tyler Shullick.

Three drivers took their turn at the front of the Dirt Truck feature. Cody Truman would lead the opening lap before RJ Cornett took control for the next handful of laps. Jamie Miller would then take the lead after starting 8th. The battle behind Miller was often three wide before Cory McCaughey, Jim Holcomb, Brad Stuckey, and Keith Sorg settled into the remaining top five positions.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Tuesday, Aug. 24 to help kick off the Sandusky County Fair, with the NAPA of Bryan 305 Attica Fremont Championship Series in action. Lots of cash and prizes will be on the line!
