ATTICA, Ohio – Attica Raceway Park put the wraps to it’s 32nd season of racing Saturday, Nov. 23, handing out awards to the top 10 in points in the track’s three weekly divisions. The inaugural season of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) 410 Sprint Division Presented by the Baumann Auto Group was also celebrated during the banquet. In total, over $76,000 in point fund money between the track and series was handed out 33 drivers.

Attica Raceway Park Promoter John Bores also addressed the big crowd, saying plans are full steam ahead for the 2020 racing season that begins in March.

“We put new dirt on the track last winter and it wasn’t any good and I take responsibility for that. Pork Chop (Brandon Smith) and the guys got it a lot better as the season went on but it wasn’t what we expect at Attica Raceway Park. We have put new clay on the track and hopefully the surface will be a lot better,” Bores said. “The schedule will pretty much be the same as last year with our signature event the Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday, July 14. It’s been a real pleasure working with Brad and we look forward to great weather this year. I want to thank Duane Hancock for all his hard work putting the AFCS together to help the race teams throughout the season. Of course, we couldn’t do this without all our sponsors, race teams and great fans.”

During the awards ceremony, nearly every driver in the top 10 in points in the track’s weekly divisions said they would return to compete at Attica in 2020. Hancock also indicated marketing partners and the great supporters of the AFCS are already signing up to be a part of the series next season. Brad Doty announced the 32nd Annual Brad Doty Classic will be sanctioned once again by the NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaw Sprint Car Series in 2020.
