Attica Raceway Park
Tonight’s racing action is starting early because of a threat of rain. Hopefully we can get this one in! Wow, this group of young All Star racers is fun to watch. Kings Royal winner Tyler Courtney has shown that he is a force to be reckoned with in a winged sprint car. Cory Eliason is fast, along with Hunter Schurenburg, Justin Peck, Zeb Wise, Skylar Gee and Spencer Bayston. These guys bring it every night. If not for the bad luck and inconsistency befalling some, the point battle might look a lot different.
Peck obviously has had his share of bad luck this year. Justin is fast and many times has been in contention for wins, but a cut down tire or someone crashing in front of him has derailed a promising season. Wise has had bad luck too, with parts flying off the car at speed and a few violent wrecks while racing at the front. Otherwise Zeb has shown he’s able to wheel a winged sprint car. And Spencer Bayston has shown that he can win..and beat the best, with a consistent ride.
The racing program started around 5:00 pm which was really cool. Maybe we can get home really early tonight! Tyler Courtney turned the fastest time on a tacky track. At 5:30 the first heat was pushing out under an overcast sky. The top 5 would transfer to the A main. In heat 1, the winner was Bayston, followed by Wise, Peck, first starting Dussel and Sammy Swindell. Reutzel and Shaffer miss the transfer. In heat 2, Jac won from the front, followed by Reinhardt, Macedo, Eliason and Spithaler. The track has a little cushion but is slicking off some up around the top. The middle is still tacky with the bottom starting to dry a little. The wind has picked up and that is drying up the track as well. In heat 3 the winner was Scelzi followed by Schuerenburg, Courtney, Polyak and Henry.
