ATTICA, Ohio — Bryan Sebetto learned a lot during his first Knoxville Nationals last week. The Fremont, Ohio, driver took that knowledge back to Ohio and earned his fourth victory of the season Saturday at Attica Raceway Park.
The win was Sebetto’s seventh of the season as he has three victories at Fremont Speedway as well. It also increased his point lead in the $10,000-to-win Kistler Racing Products Fremont Attica Sprint Title (FAST) Championship Series Presented by Engine Pro and KS Sales and Service.
“This thing is fast every time it hits the race track. It shows how hard these guys work and how good of a race car and race team this is. It’s not just me…it’s not just Aaron (Hammer, crew chief) or just Randy (Hammer, owner) or Gressman (Scott, owner of Gressman Powersports) with the motors it’s everything…the whole package,” said Sebetto.
Brandon Martin, Chris Andrews, Brian Smith and Dean Jacobs filled the top five.
Ryan Markham took the lead from Larry Kingseed on lap 12 after a spirited battle involving Kingseed and Mike Bores, and went on to his first career victory in the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models.
“The top was a little bit better tonight. Those guys were running around there and I knew if I could just get out front I could get away from them. This feels good. We’ve been trying for a long time to win up here…we’ve had a good car. We’ve been running Hilltop on Saturday nights and we won down there two weeks ago and I said I got to go to Attica…I only have a couple more shots at winning one this year. This has been a weight that’s been on my shoulders for a long time,” said Markham.
John Ivy and Paige Polyak waged a tremendous battle for the lead in 305 sprint feature, with Ivy taking the top spot on lap 14, only to watch Polyak drive under him with three laps to go before he retook the lead in the next corner. Ivy would hold off Polyak to get his first victory of the year at Attica. It was his 11th career win in the division to move him into a tie with Scott Miller for 11th on the track’s all-time win list.
Dan Roepke Jr. took the lead on lap five of the dirt truck feature, and never looked back as he went on to score his second win of the season and second of his career at Attica.
