Justin Peck won the All Star event Saturday at Attica
The dash finish was pole sitter Eliason in first, followed by 4th starting Wise, 2nd starting Peck, Madsen, Schurenburg who started 8th, Conley, Mintz and last was 3rd starting Wolfe, who couldn’t hold his starting position.
So that makes the front row of the feature Eliason and Wise, followed by Peck and Madsen, Schurenburg and Conley, Mintz and Wolfe.
The 40 lap feature was ready to start at 7:35 p.m. which was really good since the sun was starting to go down and it was still windy. The race was a good one as Eliason grabbed the early lead with Wise in tow. It was follow the leader down low pretty much, except a few brave racers would try it up against the dusty cushion in turn 1. Some would get momentum from it but then loose traction as they exited turn 2. On lap 5 Macedo exits the track in turn 3 and goes to the work area. He then returns. The running order was Eliason, Wise, Madsen, Peck, Schurenburg, Mintz, Conley, Marks, Andrews, Courtney and Wolfe, who was falling back. On the restart it was really dusty and Henry spins it in turn 3. Macedo exits with a sputtering engine. On the lap 6 restart Wise creeps past Eliason and then Wise starts to extend his lead. Peck then gets by Eliason on lap 14 for 2nd and on lap 16 Wolfe spins in turn 2. On the restart Wise gets out to a lead and extends it. Wise stays down low and as the leaders enter traffic, Peck blasts around the top in 1 and 2 to inch closer to Wise. Around lap 26, Peck, who got up to Wise’s bumper for a few laps, finally inches by for the lead. Wise stays close, even blasting around the top himself in turns 1 and 2, but can’t get the lead back as Peck takes the win.
The top 10 finish was Peck, Wise, Schurenburg, Marks, Eliason, Mintz, Courtney, Madsen, Andrews and Foos. I have to say that Peck is on fire and he has confidence. He looks like a veteran in victory lane. He’s the real deal. He really impressed me with his driving. Wise drove well too. Wise looks like he will be in the hunt as well as Eliason, Schurenburg, Marks and Courtney. Henry and Wolfe and Balog will regroup and make some noise too.
Thank you Attica Raceway Park and Thank you All Star Circuit of Champions. See you at the next race!
