Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title presented by KS Sales & Service
FAST Series Crowns Champions; Announces New Series Ownership in 2014

MAUMEE, OH (11-10-13) by Scott Porter - F.A.S.T. Public Relations

The Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) Championship Series presented by KS Sales & Service and the JLH General Contractors 305 Championship Series crowned their champions and honored the Top 10 in points last Saturday night (11/2/13) to celebrate the 5th season of the FAST Series.  The season ending celebration took place at the American Legion in Fremont, OH and was once again very well attended. 
 
Craig Mintz took home the Kistler Cup hardware and a check for $10,000 for edging out Byron Reed for his second FAST title.  Nate Dussel hoisted the 305 series trophy and collected $1500 for the top spot for holding off John Ivy to claim the honors.  (See list of drivers and awards below).
 
Over $35,000 in cash and prizes was handed out over the course of the evening with 10th place in the 410 division collecting $1000 cash and 10th place of the 305 division collecting $500 cash.  In the five years of its existence, the FAST organization has pumped more than $150,000 in cash and prizes back into the local racing economy.  This point fund is in addition to the Fremont and Attica track point funds and has helped these teams pump more money back into their programs for the past 5 seasons. 
 
Before the final awards of the evening were handed out to the champions, series president Bryan Autullo thanked the drivers, the fans, the car owners, and the sponsors for making the FAST Series a successful program.  He then went on to announce that effective immediately after the banquet, Fremont Speedway promoter, Rich Farmer, would be taking the reins as the new owner of the series going forward into 2014.  Farmer had been in negotiations with the series since the end of the 2013 racing season and an agreement was reached that will allow him to carry the torch into the new year.
 
“It was really a time commitment issue for us,” stated Autullo.  “Scott Porter, Chris Kettman, and I spent the past 5 years working to create a good foundation for this series, but with increased family and work obligations it just didn’t make sense for us to continue with what we were doing.  We felt that we could not advance any further with what we started and we didn’t want to start slipping backwards.  We unanimously made the decision to either shut down operations, or to turn it over to someone who would carry on what we started and continue to build on our foundation.  It has been a lot of fun and also a lot of headaches, but we proved that a small group of fans can make a difference with a little determination and lot of hard work.”
 
“Bryan came to me after the season was over and told me about their plan to shut down the FAST Series,” said Farmer.  “I thought about what the series means to this area and to my race track and made an offer to take over the duties to carry this concept into the future.”  After several weeks of negotiations, an agreement was reached and Farmer and his team will spend the winter planning and securing sponsorships for the 2014 season.  “We already got verbal commitments from 90% of the current sponsors for the 2014 season,” Farmer says.  “Our goal is to add some more new ones and try to build on what these guys have started.  I’m grateful for what they did these past 5 years and I'm excited to be able to continue what has been a successful program in this area.  I intend to take it to the next level and hope that the drivers continue to support it.”
 
Autullo went on to say, “Between the All Stars and the FAST Series, I have spent the past 10 years dedicated to helping this sport in some small way.  Over the past 5 years Scott Porter and Chris Kettman have also dedicated a lot of time to helping our local racers.  We felt it was time for us to step back and let someone else take the reins.  I know Rich will do what’s right and will continue to work with Attica Raceway Park and build this into something bigger than we were able to.  He has a passion for this sport and has never been afraid to try new ideas.  We look forward to seeing what the future holds.  We also look forward to our new role as average fans.  Thanks to everyone who has supported us in this effort since 2009.  The torch has been passed.”

F.A.S.T. Series 2013 Banquet to Celebrate Fifth Season with Champions Mintz and Dussel

MAUMEE, OH (10-7-13) by Scott Porter - FAST Public Relations

The Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) season in Northern Ohio has concluded and on Saturday, November 2nd we'll crown our series champions and award the top-10 in points in both the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Championship Series presented by KS Sales & Service and the JLH General Contractors F.A.S.T. 305 Championship Series.

This event will be held at the American Legion – Post 121 – located at 2000 Buckland Avenue in Fremont, Ohio. It is a casual affair, as it has been in past years, and is open to drivers, teams, fans and sponsors. There will be lots of bench racing and story-telling once the cash bar opens, but the highlight of the evening will be when the point fund monies, awards and contingency prizes are handed out to the top drivers in both the 410 sprint car and 305 sprint car ranks that compete at Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park.

"We try to have fun with our banquet by making it a casual event...more of a big year end celebration.  We've managed to give back to the race teams and drivers that compete week in and week out for the past 5 years," stated Bryan Autullo of F.A.S.T.  "Thanks to numerous marketing partners that have supported F.A.S.T., we're able to hand out large sums of cash and some great contingency prizes that will help these teams regroup over the off-season."

Admission is just $10.00 each at the door and includes a buffet style meal. Drivers MUST attend in order to receive cash and prizes.  There are no exceptions to this rule.  Two free admissions will be provided to each team (for the driver and car owner or guest).  "I've always felt that the guests of honor should not have to pay to get in to collect their check," stated Autullo.  "Our goal has always been to help these drivers and teams, not capitalize on them."

Doors will open at 4 pm and you'll want to arrive early.  In 2012 it was a packed house and more tables and chairs had to be brought in to accomodate the crowd.  A buffet style meal will be served at 5 pm and the awards will start around 6 pm in an effort to get everyone who attends this event back on the road early if they need to. There will be a cash bar, which usually makes the award ceremony portion of the evening something to remember.

Fans are encouraged to attend as the F.A.S.T. organization strives to bring fans and drivers under one roof in an effort to create a mutual bond. This celebration has been well attended in past years and a good time has been had by all.  Please plan to join us as we recap the 2013 season and crown Craig Mintz as the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Champion and Nate Dussel as the JLH General Contractors F.A.S.T. 305 Champion.

2013 F.A.S.T. AWARDS BANQUET PARTY AT-A-GLANCE:
When: Saturday, November 2nd
Where: Fremont American Legion (2000 Buckland Avenue, Fremont, OH 43420)

FAST Weekend Wrap-Up: Craig Mintz & Nate Dussel Crowned 2013 Fremont/Attica Sprint Title Champions

MAUMEE, OH (9-10-13) by Bryan Autullo - F.A.S.T. Public Relations
 
The Kistler Racing Products Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) Series presented by KS Sales & Service made its final appearance of the 2013 racing season at  Fremont Speedway on Saturday September 7th, wrapping up the organization's 5th season with Craig Mintz and Nate Dussel hoisting the big checks in victory lane.   Mintz won the inaugural FAST title in 2009 and with the high level of competition at these two Ohio bullrings, it took him another 4 years to earn his second Kistler Cup trophy.

Mintz rolled through the gates with a 90 point lead over 2010 FAST Champion Byron Reed.  Reed knew all he could do is try to win the race and hope Mintz had a bad night. With Mintz transferring from his heat race in 3rd place it solidified his Championship run and all he needed to do was take the green flag in the feature event.  After re-drawing the #1 position to start the A-main, it seemed like nothing couldgo wrong for the Gibsonburg, Ohio native.  However, a rough track, caused by an earlier rain shower, would cause Mintz to lose his power steering mid-race, dropping him to a 9th place finish and nearly a trip to the E.R. as he exited the car on the front stretch and collapsed.  Paramedics tended to him during the front stretch interviews with feature winner Christopher Bell in the Rick Ferkel owned #0 car and 2013 Fremont Speedway Track Champion Byron Reed. 

Mintz managed to find the strength to make it to the front stretch to hoist the $10,000 FAST "big check" in front of the large Fremont Speedway crowd.  Mintz and Reed tied for the track title, but Reed prevailed with the tie breaker.  The two local veterans made it interesting right down to the final night after battling all season long with Mintz's consistent finishes keeping him just one step ahead of Reed.  Both would manage to finish within a few spots of each other all season long, making it difficult for the rest of the feild to gain any ground.

With Mintz besting Reed by 70 points at the end of the evening, the battle for 3rd place saw Chris Andrews edge out 2013 FAST Rookie of the Year DJ Foos by just 20 points.  Foos barely held onto 4th place as another young hot shoe, Caleb Griffith, finished in 5th place just 1 point behind Foos.  Brian Lay finished in 6th place as Brian Smith vaulted into 7th place with Duane Zablocki nipping at his heels in 8th.  Veteran racer Dean Jacobs held onto 9th place and Travis Philo rounded out the Top 10. 

Also, the tough JLH General Contractors F.A.S.T. 305 Championship Series wrapped up their 10 race schedule with an extremely drama filled feature event.  Coming into the night, Nate Dussel held a 28 point advantage over John Ivy.  Ivy knew if he wanted to catch Dussel, all he could do is try to win the race and hope for the best.  Ivy drove to the front like a man on a mission doing all he could do to win the title.  He knew he had to win the race to have a chance.

Dussel was struggling and having trouble hitting his marks through turns 1 and 2.  It looked like Ivy might pull off the upset and Dustin Dinan was smelling blood as he hunted down Dussel from mid-pack.  Then disaster struck as Dussel bounced through the cushion in turn 2, got sideways, and collected Dinan sending them both flipping.  Dussel had light damage and was able to restart from the tail.  It seemed as if all hope was lost, but Dussel got up on the wheel and started passing cars.  If Ivy won the race, Dussel would need to finish 8th or better to pull off the Championship win.  He made it all the way up to 7th place when the checkers flew giving Dussel a 4 point advantage over Ivy and the 2013 FAST title. 

Jordan Ryan would finish the season out in 3rd place over Dinan with Alvin Roepke rounding out the Top 5.  TJ Michael barely edged out Paul Weaver for 6th place with Weaver just 5 points back in 7th.  Bobby Clark came home in 8th place, just 2 points ahead of 9th place Seth Schneider.  Schneider finished just 2 points ahead of Jason Keckler who rounds out the Top 10.

FAST Night #18: Fremont Speedway Quick Results

Chris Bell Earns First Career FAST Win At Fremont; Mintz Claims Second Career FAST Title

By Brian Liskai - Fremont Speedway Public Relations

(Fremont, OH) Rick Ferkel gave Christopher Bell his first ever 410 sprint car ride two years ago. Bell has moved on to USAC racing, but when he was asked to pilot the famous 0 car at Fremont Saturday the youngster from Norman, Oklahoma didn’t hesitate. He would lead all 30 laps on Tanks Meats Night to score his first ever Fremont victory.
 
Defending track champion Craig Mintz came into the championship night leading the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints points. He had already claimed the Attica Raceway Park title and just needed a top five finish to pick up the Fremont championship. Mintz suffered a broken power steering pump and fell back to a ninth place finish. Meanwhile Byron Reed would come home third meaning the two tied for the track title. Reed would earn his fourth Fremont Speedway championship by having two feature wins in 2013 while Mintz did not find victory lane. However, Mintz was able to earn his second Kistler Racing Products FAST (Fremont Attica Sprint Title) Championship Series title and its $10,000 payday.
 
“I really can’t thank Rick (Ferkel) enough. Me and him worked together a lot last summer and I feel like we should have had a couple of wins. I either let them slip away or something would happen to take them away. I can’t say enough about Rick. It’s so awesome to put the zero back in victory lane,” said Bell in the Engine Pro Victory Lane beside his Steyer Seeds/Shorty’s Truck Repair/Smith Farms/Zeis Development/Griff’s Engines/Griffith Truck and Equipment/Rick Baker Trucking backed machine.
 
“It’s an honor to win at Fremont against guys like Chris Andrews and Bryan Sebetto…they are literally the best of the best here. I tackled the wet and heavy track tonight which means a lot. The first ever time I drove a sprint car was back in 2011 for Rick…it’s just a privilege to drive for him,” added Bell.
 
Reed was happy to pick up his fourth Fremont track championship for his first ever sponsor, Crown Battery.
 
“I didn’t get the greatest start but we were pretty good there at the end. I didn’t know where Craig was…I just figured I’d do the best I could and see what happens. It shows you have to fight for everything you get and let the cards fall where they may,” said Reed. “One of the reasons I make sure I try to do my best here at Fremont is because I have Crown Battery sponsor me and they told me they really wanted a championship and it took everything we had.”
 
An exhausted Mintz was hoping to make it a trifecta of championships and feel just short in his bid for the Fremont title. But, the FAST championship brightened his night.
 
“We junked a power steering pump. I was fine and was getting into a groove until the cautions came out and it just kept making it worse and bunching us back up. I was fine when I was by myself and I had a couple of guys throwing me a wheel and I was just trying to stay out of the way and not destroy a race car. I have to give it to Byron, this track wasn’t easy to pass on and he passed a lot of race cars and that’s why he’s the champion,” said Mintz beside his Real Geese Decoys/Erie Shore Propane/Keller Chevrolet/R2C Filters/Kistler Engines/KS Sales and Service backed #09.
 
“These guys from FAST….Scott Porter, Bryan Autullo…these guys do everything for us. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them there’s no doubt about it. What they do keeps the car counts up. I think we averaged 25 to 30 cars all season and it wasn’t for FAST there’s no way that would have happened,” added Mintz.

Mintz and Bell would bring the field to the green for the 30-lap 410 sprint feature with Bell grabbing the lead over Mintz, Brian Lay, Rob Chaney, Byron Reed, Chris Andrews and Bryan Sebetto. Lee Jacobs would bring out the caution with three laps in when he stopped on the track. When the green flew Bell pulled away as Mintz battled with Lay for second with Sebetto moving into fourth.
 
Bell would hit lapped traffic by the seventh circuit but Mintz and Lay could not close. With nine laps in Bell’s nose wing collapsed but it didn’t slow his march as Lay took second. Sebetto would grab third on lap 14 but Mintz would regain the position two laps later.
 
The caution flew on lap 21 for a Travis Philo spin with the running order Bell, Lay, Mintz, Reed, Chaney, Sebetto and Greg Wilson. On the restart Reed moved around Mintz into third but the caution would fly again with 22 laps in for Duane Zablocki.
 
Again Bell would pull away from Lay with Reed, Mintz, Chaney and Sebetto in tow. Chaney would take fourth on lap 24 as Reed pressured lay for second. With five to go Mintz began to tire as Sebetto moved into fifth bringing Stuart Brubaker into sixth.
 
Bell would catch the back of the pack again as he took the white flag but Lay or Reed could not close. Bell would power to the victory over Lay, Reed, Chaney and Sebetto.
