    The races were pretty good all night. Amazed at how good the track was despite the conditions. Brubaker is putting together one heck of a year. If he keeps up he might very well be the track champ when all is said and done. Tons of passing in all of the features. Mintz started 13th and finished in the top 5, brubaker started 5th to win. Reed and Henry came from deep towards the front as well.

    one thing that stuck out to me was it seemed like nobody could get the car to stick in 4. All the refs and most of the cautions was so to people jumping the cushion in 3 and 4 all night. Can’t belueve how lucky bobby Clark was to fly off and through the entrance to the track and work area and not hit a single thing. That could’ve been a very bad crash.

    Broc martins flip was scary on the backstretch too. Seemed like it was just close hard racing from my perspective but hard to see a car get junked that badly. Bayston was fast all night too but his fence climbing put that car out of race. Seemed like a lot of drivers were driving harder than normal and I wonder if the track is why.

    The best heat race was the last one for the 305's. Prior to that, once the cars got single file, they all ran the top and were pretty well spread out. All 3 features were good. 5 reds in the 410 feature were not so good. Unusual track conditions instead of the normal dry/slick probably were a factor. (not a criticism of track prep, just an opinion)

    Wind changed direction from blowing off lake and your right, the night felt warmer. 8pm had sweatshirt on at work, 9pm was T-shirt and that was in Sandusky to tell how much change wind was. Sounds like good racing and lotta passing

    On a night when Attica could have cancelled, they chose to race. Thank you to every one at ARP for getting this show in. For two consecutive weeks, Attica has had great events and disappointing crowds. Hopefully, the weather and the attendance will both be good next Friday. Strange as it sounds, it was warmer at the end of the show than at the beginning. That's a new experience.

    Thanks for background. I actually thought he was still in high school.
    Hopefully he becomes a smooth driver.

    That's not true. It depends on the kid. My son started at 13 and was track champion at 15. Maturity makes a big difference.

    Young drivers have a tendency to tear **** up and/or make mistakes. Like when my dad and I first started really watching we called Tyler Gunn "Spinning Gunn" because he spun at every event we saw him. He's a pretty damn competitive driver now. Give people time to race and be glad for every driver that walks through the gates of a track. Whether their driving a beat up old compact at wayne county or coming in with a semi and multiple cars and engines in the hauler they are the ones putting on the show. Take the drivers off the track and you dont have a race to go watch and people will moan about the low car counts. Be happy that the Baker family is bringing their two boys racing at Attica, wayne county and fremont instead of putting them down for not being the best drivers as of yet. Lord knows if they were a driver of the same talent level who didn't have money people would support them...

    I believe he is 21yrs old

    I believe Ferkel finished the last month of racing in 2017, and made it thru Ocala with him this year. Brian Grove is turning wrenches on the car now. This is the beginning of his 2nd year in a 410, with 1yr in a 305. His brother Chase has 4 nights in a 410 total.

    He wasn't comparing the 2 at all. Just simply stating that Sheldon tore stuff up also. Hell, for that matter, he still does.
