(Tom Myers) Orrville, Ohio 9-6-2020 - The Attica Ambush finale on Saturday was a really entertaining race and still on my mind as we pulled up to Wayne County Speedway for the 2020 edition of the Pete Jacobs Memorial. Could we see another good one on Sunday at Orrville? I was hoping so, and with a big payout for the winner and a good field of cars on hand, the odds were that we were gonna see another good show.
We arrived at 3:30…just after the gates opened…and the place was filling up already! A huge crowd filtered in as the afternoon wore on. So the 11n rigs pulls in and right behind is another open trailer with another 11n car on it. In addition to D.J. Netto, the Linder brothers have Buddy Kofoid driving a second car tonight. Sweet! Rico is here. REEEECCOOOOOO! Others on hand were Cole Duncan, Tim Shaffer, Cap Henry, Jac Haudenschild, Cole Macedo, Chad Kemenah, Jack Sodeman Jr., Lee Jacobs, Dean Jacobs, Trey Jacobs, R.J. Jacobs, Cale Conley, Broc Martin, Stewart Brubaker, Ricky Peterson, Jordan Ryan, Danny Mumaw, Chris Myers and Henry Malcuit among a few others. Thirty cars in all….if my count was correct. I expected more cars but a race in Michigan and another at Atomic pulled some cars away from here.
The weather was partly cloudy and cool, with occasional sunshine and not much of a breeze. The track was tacky and it stayed that way all evening. As a matter of fact, the track widened out nicely, as cars raced around the bottom, through the middle and up around the fence, and there was no dust. We got a little dirt during the feature, not much actually, and you could see the action with no problem.
