“With the kind of money on the line Saturday we are expecting a great car count. Earlier in the month for the first Open Wheel Shootout we had 90 sprint cars in the pits. We’ve received a lot of inquiries about Saturday’s race and the weather looks fantastic,” said Rich Farmer, FAST Owner.
The FAST 410 series point battle has tightened up following the May 18 event at Attica Raceway Park. Gibsonburg, Ohio’s Stuart Brubaker claimed his first FAST win of the season (his second overall win at Attica) to move into second in the point standings only 17 markers behind leader Craig Mintz.

Four time FAST champion Byron Reed has the only other series win in 2018 and sits 13th in points, having missed a race at Fremont Speedway last month.
