FAST Returns Home to Fremont Speedway This Saturday
For the first time in this abbreviated 2020 season, the Ti22 Performance - FAST on Dirt winged 410 sprint car tour will visit the Fremont Speedway this Saturday, August 15th. Located on the historic Sandusky County Fairgrounds, auto racing has gone on at his location for nearly a full century. The permanent 1/3 mile Fremont Speedway was built in 1951 and continues to this day.
For the FAST tour, this will be race number 3 for the season. Local driver Dean Jacobs picked up the opening round win at Wayne County Speedway on June 27th and Sikeston, Missouri's Hunter Schuerenberg won round 2 picking up the $8,500 win in the Freedom 40 at Atomic Speedway on July 11th. After 2 doubleheader weekends were lost to the COVID-19 pandemic and one rainout, FAST is finally ready to get race 3 in the books!
Jordan Harble currently leads the point standings over T.J. Michael, Bryan Nuckles, Tyler Gunn, Cody Gardner and Mitch Harble. They will face serious competition from the Fremont point runners who include Nate Dussel, DJ Foos, Stuart Brubaker, Cole Macedo, John Ivy, Brian Smith and more!
