  • Fast Schedule to be announced Jan 1

    Saw on Facebook that FAST posted they will announce their schedule Jan 1. States it currently has 17 races at 10 tracks with $3k to win/$300 to start + tow, heat, bonus $$$. Point fund growing.

    The big surprise. No races at Attica. Post is below

    Schedule unveils Jan 1. So far 17 races at 10 tracks. 3K to win/300 to start + tow, heat & bonus $$$. Point fund growing. The sad news - declined by Attica who chose to focus on their program.

    The original Attica/Fremont series is coming back so I doubt they'd get any followers from those teams anyway.

      Once FAST expanded I never understood why Attica kept going with it because it was basically promoting another series with no real benefit for Attica. It was still Attica's money, it was still Attica's purse, and mostly Attica's teams/drivers, etc... The only thing it did was benefit the drivers/teams which I am sure is one reason why Attica kept bringing them in.

      If it wasn't for Attica the FAST series wouldn't have been running for $3,000 to win which is the same purse for a normal regular show at Attica.

        Taking a wild stab at the 10 tracks;

        1. Atomic (already released schedule)
        2. Fremont
        3. Mansfield
        4. Sharon
        5. Gas City
        6. Montpelier
        7. Kokomo
        8. Route 44
        9. Waynesfield

        I can see 10 being Wayne County, maybe Mercer and I always hold out hope for more winged shows at Lawrenceburg.

          Not sure what you mean by the original series is coming back.

          Another deal to keep the cars at Attica and Fremont so they wont travel?

              Bringing back the original idea that helped the locals there and the tracks. Smart on their part not everyone wants to get off the porch.

                Yes and i hear the new guy from FAST is charging a sanctioning fee. Why would Attica or Fremont pay a sanctioning fee to have the same cars show up?

                  DirtRacer42 ....Although I enjoy reading most of your comments I respectfully disagree with the bottom statement. Most of the FAST series up till now sponsorship wise were from the Fremont area and without them Fast wouldn't of had a series to begin with. Obviously, John,Rex and Rich worked hard on FAST but the sponsor list from last year kinda speaks for itself. I'm sure Fremont and Attica are pounding out a replacement as I type, hopefully it gets the support the old FAST received. New FAST new direction from looking at the schedule on FB. Its gonna be a great year!!!!

                        Thanks. Did not see that previously. Wonder if they'll do a double shot that weekend with I-96 being a Sunday show.

                            My thought is too many sprint series now.
                            You got BOSS NW
                            BOSS Wing
                            FAST
                            Vicki Emig RUSH sprints
                            OVSCS
                            Unnamed Attica and Fremont series
                            Western PA sprints
                            I feel for tracks trying to run regular sprints up against this.

                              Agree, the only comment is FAST is replacing BOSS Wing (same owner). I am just curious who will follow the FAST series full time. My question is how long with the All Stars allow these OH tracks to book these other series that are trying to pull away from their product. All Stars won't be happy if a promoter finds he can make more money on a cheaper FAST or OVSCS then paying for the high priced All Stars. Going to be interesting.
