  • Torn between Attica and Lernerville on Friday but leaning towards Attica since a friend of mine that's going is a big latemodel fan. Definetly going to WCS Saturday. Last week it was a hard choice between the all sprint show at fremont, allstars at Sharon, and WCS but Fremont is 2.5 hours away and everything sucks at Sharon in my opinion. So its a no brainer this weekend. 3k to win ovsca sprints at WCS since the track was beautiful last weekend and the show went smooth. Plus happy hour is a money saver.

    • Another option is SOD at Butler Saturday. Really interested on how the car counts shake out with Sharon (Fast), Atomic (BossW) and WCS (Ovsca) all paying 3k to win and 300 to start for all those guys not interested in running against the Woo Saturday. I think Sharon gets the biggest field at 30, Atomic and WCS end up with 24 a piece.

      Unfortunately I took a look at the advanced forecast for Saturday and lets just say we might be watching boat races. Hoping the percentages of wet stuff changes but not looking good now.

      • I might venture down to Hilltop after work depending how late my work day runs. Venture because it will be an experience. They are running late models, mod lights, mini stocks and trucks with the show dropping street stock and modifieds. Would like to have seen them drop the trucks too. That is 5 classes which I think is too many for that track to efficiently handle in a timely manner. So I'll really have to think about that.

        Saturday will be WCS and only 4 classes. It should be a well run program. Always some unexpected racing firsts there in a good way. Good parking, decent food for reasonable price and the facility keeps improving.

        Weather around Hilltop and WCS not saying the R word.
        Friday 70s and cloudy.
        Saturday 70s and some windy spells.

        • It's Ohio and now weather forecast calling for the R word Friday and Saturday. Not on the weekend when I might be able to do 2 racing days for once.

          • Attica & Fremont. I like latemodels as much as I like sprints and hope these two Ethanol Series events are successful. Its almost mid-May and Attica has had only 3 races for the 410's. Fremont has only had 2. Kind of disappointing, isn't it? Good thing plenty of 410 races are comming up in the next few weekends.

            • Even tho it doesn't inspire the goosebumps it once did I'll be at eldora both nites if the weather co-operates. And I may do tri-state Sunday.

              • The Big E tonight only for me. That's about all the Eldora I can handle anymore.

                      That's a very solid car count for Western PA in recent years. Glad to see that they're able to get that many. And what's a nice addition as well is many of those same cars should be at Sharon to take on the FAST drivers tonight as well.

                      Saw WoO had 37 cars at Eldora last night too which is on par for night 1. I imagine some of the drivers will go elsewhere Saturday. Locals did solid, saw Jac Haud got 4th and Cole Duncan 5th. There were FOUR WoO drivers who used provisionals...

                      Anyone have some info on the OVSCA show at Hilltop?

                          Them and Hilltop are just about the worst I've seen at reporting results...

                          • Been trying some different formatting things the past few weeks, I think I'm going to only do the highlights of the week instead of mentioning each and every event. Feel like I'm insulting ya'll's intelligence by saying something you can read directly below sometimes. Without further adieu

                            Weekend Highlights
                            -Atomic Speedway in Chillocothe Ohio welcomes the World of Outlaw Craftsman Late Models to the track for two nights of action. The pair of $10k to win events in a Late Model heavy area will surely draw some heavy hitters from the outside along with the touring members of the Outlaws. Steve Casebolt is one of the hottest local drivers right now coming off of a $4k to win victory at Attica against 40+ Cars and the AELMT. Casebolt also has a victory at Atomic this year on their opening night. The Conley's and Carpenter's will also be ones to watch as locals to pull off an upset.

                            -Brushcreek welcomes the OVSCA sprints to their track this Saturday for their only visit of the year. Nathan Skaggs picked up the win last year, although he has yet to make his debut for the season. General Admission is $15 for the event. Class A CDL drivers admission is FREE. Hot Laps and Qualifying start at 7 on Saturday.

                            -Raceway 7 attempts to open again up in Conneaut with their regular show.

                            -Sharon Speedway hosts another Menard's Super Six race with the Big Block Modifieds on the card this week. Sharon is the only spot in Ohio to see these cars race outside of the one off event for the Dirt Derby with NASCAR Trucks at Eldora so go support the event if you'd like to see more of the BBM's. AND THE EVENT IS FREE to all for GA seating.

                            -NRA 360 sprints have shows at Limaland and Eldora this weekend on tap, and (if I recall correctly) the event at Eldora is a Family fun night and has a reduced admission with fireworks.

                            -The FAST series is back in action after a rainout last week at Sharon, racing at Attica on Friday and supported by the Late Models and the FAST 305 sprints. Craig Mintz leads the FAST 410 points race by 24 points over Cap Henry and the Lane Racing team. Rounding out the top 5 in the FAST410 points are Stuart Brubaker, Chris Andrews, and the defending champ DJ Foos. The FAST 305 points race is narrowly led by Brandon Moore seeking his first championship over veteran John Ivy, who trails by 7 marks. Jamie Miller, Bobby Clark, and Kyle Peters round out the top 5.

                            -Gas City Speedway in Indiana is hosting a Non-Wing, Midget, TQ Midget, Modified, and compact show dubbed "open wheel madness". Looks like the current promoter has really risen this track from the dead and is getting a good following for the non wing sprints. If you're nearby go support them and this track coming back.

                            Weekend Plans
                            Back to Attica for me this weekend and I'm taking my fiance for her first race this year. I am really interested in the race at Gas City but I'd be cutting it a bit close on time to get there. That, and it's a significantly longer trip and I know the racing is fantastic at Attica and I'll always consider it my home track. No racing planned as of yet Saturday, however, if I can't keep busy I might have to make a visit to Fremont, Oakshade, or maybe even Waynesfield for the first time. I get paid for the first time at my new job Friday so I'll be good to go. (Although I'm looking at buying a new car so maybe I should save the bucks )

                              Nothing Huge to add but just a couple of notes. The Big Block Modifieds will not be back at Eldora after the fiasco of last year. They are running DIRTcar Modifieds and Eldora Stock Cars for the Tuesday night before the NASCAR Truck Race.

                              Also, I know it isn't in Ohio but Lawrenceburg will be hosting the BOSS traditional sprint cars this Saturday night.
