FREMONT, Ohio – DJ Foos put on a dominating performance Saturday at Fremont Speedway, leading all 30 laps of the TI22 Performance FAST On Dirt feature event for his fifth win of the year at “The Track That Action Built” on Ohio Laborers Local 480 & Local 574 Night.

Britton, Michigan’s Dan McCarron took the lead with 10 laps to go and drove to the Great Lakes Sprint Series victory. It was his second career win at Fremont.

Hometown driver Paul Weaver also powered into the lead of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint A with 10 laps to go and took his fourth win of the year at Fremont. It was his 63rd career win at Fremont putting him third on the track’s all-time win list behind Art Ball and Shawn Valenti. It was also Weaver’s 9th overall win of 2021 as he has five victories at Attica Raceway Park as well.

Foos wasted little time in the 410 sprint A-main, charging from fourth to the lead at the drop of the green. Chris Andrews challenged him early but was involved in a spin on a restart with 13 laps to go. Foos built a two second lead before the final caution flew with eight laps remaining. When the green flew he pulled away for the win to build his track point lead with Macedo, Nate Dussel, Kyle Capodice and Alex Bowman rounding out the top five.

“Three and four was a handful there. I looked up under the yellow and I saw the 18 (Cole Macedo) was there and I was like ‘oh boy’ so I picked up the pace a little bit. I felt pretty comfortable. My brother was over in turn two telling me to slow down and hit the bottom…I hate to go against him but sometimes it just didn’t feel good and I couldn’t roll through there like I wanted. I let my team down last night and put ourselves in a bad spot. We crashed early…it was very unfortunate for both teams. I knew starting fourth tonight the pressure was on me. Paul Kistler just got us this motor back yesterday and man this thing is a thumper…it just hits so good…so drivable. Doug Berryman got my shocks dialed in. Mikey Sommers does a great job and the whole Burmeister family and my crew. I’m so grateful for this opportunity with them. Usually a guy only lasts three years with this team so I knew coming into this year I was really going to have to step it up on my end,” said Foos beside his Crown Battery, CR Juices, All in Tent Rentals, Dave Story Equipment, Burmeister Trophy, Sonny’s Signs, Vantage Branding, The Jet Express, Berryman Racing Shocks, Kistler Engines, Kistler Racing Products backed #16.

The GLSS 360 feature had only one caution, that coming after one lap was complete. The remaining 24 laps went caution-free with Ryan Ruhl grabbing the lead over Max Stambaugh, Dustin Daggett and McCarron. McCarron moved into third on lap seven but Ruhl had built a nearly two second lead. McCarron used lapped traffic to take second on lap 12 and then drove under Ruhl for the lead on lap 15. McCarron muscled his way around a few lapped cars and built a 2.6 second lead with seven laps to go and had three lapped cars between himself and Ruhl. However, with five laps to go McCarron was trapped by a hand full of lapped cars but Ruhl could not close as McCarron, who started in the 305 division at Fremont, drove to the win over Stambaugh, Ruhl, Brad Lamberson and Daggett.

“Three weeks ago I led 23 and half laps…was gone and a lapper ruined it for me. So I put the wood to Jay Steinbach….sorry but I’m not losing any more like that. Tonight was a lot of work. We started out in the hole a little bit. My guys gave me crap and I got angry and we went to it. My wife is so supportive of everything. Patrick Poor has been with me for years. We won our first night out and then we haven’t won since so this is awesome. I love Fremont,” said McCarron beside his Poor Racing, XYZ Machining, Street Diesel Solutions, Joe Conway Racing backed #22M.

Dustin Stroup grabbed the early lead of the 305 A over Matt Foos, Weaver, Brandon Moore, Jamie Miller, Alvin Roepke and DJ Foos. Weaver drove into second on lap two just before the only caution flew. When the green reappeared Stroup and Weaver battled lap after lap. Weaver utilized heavy lapped traffic to grab the lead on lap 15 and built a nearly three second lead to take the win over Stroup and Matt Foos.

“I would like to thank Russ Adkins. He sold his stuff a couple of years ago because his health wasn’t there and helped me out and now he’s stage four cancer. I don’t know how much longer he’s got…I wish he was here. I’ll call him to let him know we got another win,” said Weaver beside his B&B Drain Service, M&L Excavating, Hampshire Racing Engines backed #1w.

Fremont Speedway will be back in action Saturday, Aug. 7 with the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group battling for $4,000 to win along with the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales and the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks. Also on Sunday, Aug. 8 the vintage race cars will compete on the Johnny Auxter Day event.
