Bryan Sebetto Masters Attica Dirt
ATTICA, Ohio – Bryan Sebetto has had a reputation for being inpatient and very daring behind the wheel of a 410 sprint car.
But, the 30-year-old Fremont driver showed maturity and patience Friday at Attica Raceway Park, and it took him to victory lane on Croghan Colonial Bank/All Pro Aluminum Heads Night.
Sebetto, who has claimed the last two Kistler Racing Products FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title) Championship Titles, lead all 30 laps but it wasn’t easy by any means. On a very fast and heavy track, Sebetto road the cushion and several times escaped with the lead as he got over the ledge.
Then, when he got to lapped traffic, he slowed down and carefully picked his line which allowed Brian Lay and Dale Blaney to close quickly. The last five laps had the top three running inches apart but Sebetto would take the FAST points feature event for his first Attica win of 2013 and the eighth of his career at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speedplant.
“You could run it in wide open in one and two and when I had to burp it a little or missed the cushion it would bite and I had to really fight it. The lapped cars were just as fast as us and when I got to Chris (Andrews) and he was running my line, it made it interesting,” said Sebetto beside his Hammer Pallets/Crown Batter/Gressman Powersports/JLH General Contractors/Meggit Powder Coating/All Pro Heads/Butlerbuilt backed #24h.
“We have struggled a lot this season but we finally got an All Star win at Fremont a couple of weeks ago and that gave this entire team a lot of confidence. I think we are going to get on a roll now,” added Sebetto.
Fremont’s Dustin Dinan avoided catastrophe late in the Foster’s Auto Body 305 Sprint feature as two cars he was about to lap tangled and flipped inches in front of him. He would then pull away for his second career Attica victory and the second of the season at the track, as he lead all 25 laps to claim the JLH General Contractor FAST Championship points event.
“I don’t know how I got through that…I guess it was just luck. I kind of said a few cuss words and said I hope I can make it through,” said Dinan beside his Alley Tap Room/Tanks Meats/Johnson’s Hunting and Fishing/Quality Welding/Schiets Tender Touch Car Wash/Quaintance Farms backed No. 6.
“It was good for me to get that break at the end….that gave me a clear track. I was a little nervous because he (Nate Dussel) was pretty fast. I have to thank my crew, Dave Foos, A.J. Sleek, Jamie and Homeless and Rachel and my baby girl Skylar and Rich Farmer and Shelly Liskai for all their support,” added Dinan.
The Bob’s Machine Shop/BMS Engines Dirt Truck feature was a thriller, with Brian Sorg and Dustin Keegan racing side by side nearly the entire 15 laps. But, it was 11th place starter Daniel Roepke who charged through the pack and joined the top two in a three truck shoot out the last four laps. Roepke would blast into the lead on the white flag lap and held off Keegan and Sorg for his second win of the season at Attica. It was Roepke’s fifth career victory at the track.
“The harder I drove this thing the better it got. We had engine problems all night and it still wasn’t right, but it got us to the horse track (victory lane) and that’s all that matters,” said Roepke beside his Perkin’s Tree Service/Johnny’s Electric/Vision Quest/Village Inn backed No. 88.
