Weaver Ends Bad Luck Streak
As Weaver tried to work through lapped traffic, Ryan slid into second on lap 14. Schneider would tumble in turn three right in front of the leaders on lap 16. Now with a clear track, when the green flew, so did Weaver, pulling away slightly from Ryan, Rando, Dussel, Dinan, Jacobs, Kramer and Keckler. With 11 laps to go, the battle on the track was for fourth between Dussel and Dinan. Weaver held a slim lead over Ryan, Rando, Dussel and Dinan with 10 laps to go.
As Weaver blasted away up top, Ryan ran the bottom and Rando cruised the outside line to close with Dinan and Dussel continuing their battle for fourth. Action ground to a halt on lap 23 when Dan McCarron flipped off turn two. The restart order was Weaver, Ryan, Rando, Dinan and Dussel. When the green flew Ryan challenged Weaver, racing to his inside with Rando close. Once Weaver got his rhythm back he pulled away as Rando challenged Ryan for second.
Weaver would take the checker as Ryan held on for second with Rando, Dussel and Dinan rounding out the top five.
Mike Bores has been inching his way closer to a win all season in the Summit Racing Equipment UMP Late Models. He took the lead from Larry Kingseed at the half-way point and picked his way through traffic to score his first ever late model win at the track promoted by his father.
“When I took the lead I said it’s time to go. You have to be patient only so long with lapped cars and then you have to move them. I have to thank Trent, Brent and Eddie…they work their tails off for me,” said Bores.
The Fremont Fence Dirt Truck feature was a dandy with Kent Brewer, Dan Roepke Jr. and Shawn Valenti battling the entire distance. Brewer would hold a slim lead by lap seven and held on to record his first ever win at Attica.
“I can’t believe we finally got a win. It takes a really good truck to race with these guys. These guys are really tough competitors. We finally got lucky tonight. I was on the gas. I saw that fender and I was like I’m not losing this tonight,” said Brewer.
