WRIGHT, SCHROEDER WINNERS IN ALL STAR RACES
Gary Wright won his sixth Frigidaire All Star Sprint Car series race of the season Friday, and on Saturday, Butch Schroeder won the first of his career.
Both races were held at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio. Friday's win for Wright was worth $4,000 as he led flag-to-flag in the 40-lap A-Main. He crossed the line a car-length ahead of Tyler Walker who finished second. Schroeder, a local driver, finished third that evening.
Dean Jacobs had the fast-time Friday with a new track record of 11.936-seconds. Chad Kemenah, Walker, Tim Shaffer, Wright and Bob Felmlee were heat winners in the 52-car field. Daniel Coggeshell claimed the C-Main, and Van Gurley, Jr., took home the honors in the B-Main.
The top ten finishers in Friday's A-Main were:
1. Gary Wright 2. Tyler Walker 3. Butch Schroeder 4. Tim Shaffer 5. Frankie Kerr 6. Danny Smith 7. Dean Jacobs 8. Todd Kane 9. Byron Reed 10. Keith Kauffman
Saturday's show was worth $5,000 to win for Schroeder. He took the lead on lap 13 and fought hard to keep it.
The final re-start set up an eight-lap sprint to the end, with Schroeder taking the inside groove and holding off all challengers.
Dean Jacobs again had the fast time, though at a slower, 12.053-second pace. Terry McCarl, Chad Kemenah, Alvin Roepke, Matt Linder and Mark Keegan were heat race winners on Saturday. James Fisher was the victor in the C-Main and Jim Nier won the B-Main. Jacobs won the Commercial Truck and Trailer Dash.
The top ten finishers in Saturday's A-Main were:
1. Butch Schroeder 2. Keith Kauffman 3. Dean Jacobs 4. Frankie Kerr 5. Todd Kane 6. Mark Keegan 7. Tim Shaffer 8. Alvin Roepke 9. Danny Smith 10. Terry McCarl
