Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / ALL STAR CIRCUIT OF CHAMPIONS – ATTICA, OH – The month of September is officially underway for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, and the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing” is first on the hit list.
Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, a staple on the All Star campaign trail with three events contested already in 2023, will host “America’s Series” this Friday and Saturday, September 1-2, set to headline their annual two-day Attica Ambush. Featuring two, complete programs, Attica’s doubleheader will also feature two major paydays including a $12,000-to-win finale on Saturday evening; Friday’s opener will award $6,000.
As noted, Attica Raceway Park hosted the All Star Circuit of Champions on three prior occasions already this season including one during the annual running of Ohio Sprint Speedweek. Three appearances resulted in three different winners, one of which was Rudeen Racing’s own Zeb Wise, who opened the aforementioned Ohio Sprint Speedweek event with a triumph over Tyler Courtney and Jordan Ryan. Wise is currently on top of the All Star driver standings heading into the two-day visit to the Buckeye State, leading Lane Racing’s Chris Windom and Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney.
Fremont, Ohio’s Craig Mintz and Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks each were victorious at Attica Raceway Park in April, each doing so in dramatic fashion. Mintz earned his victory with a last corner pass of Wise, while Marks accomplished his impressive feat from 20th, also overtaking the Rudeen Racing No. 26.
America’s Series will roll into Ohio fresh off of a two-day visit to the Wolverine State, headlining action at Tri-City Motor Speedway in Auburn, Michigan, and Butler Motor Speedway in Quincy, Michigan, on Friday and Saturday, August 25-26. Zeb Wise was the man on top in Auburn, while two-time and defending All Star champion, Tyler Courtney, claimed the $8,500 top prize at Butler.
