Wise gets late race pass for All Star win at Attica; Casebolt earns late model victory

Attica Raceway ParkBy Brian Liskai

ATTICA, Ohio – Attica Raceway Park may just become Zeb Wise’s favorite track.

The Angola, Indiana teen took the lead from hall-of-famer Tim Shaffer on lap 28 and drove to his second career FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 feature win to open the annual Attica Ambush double-header weekend Friday on Stillwater Metals/Murphy Tractor Night. It was the second career win for Wise at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant, both coming this season for the 18-year-old driver. Friday’s victory was worth $5,000.

“To say we needed this after last week is an understatement. The last month and half, two months have been so rough. Some things that are in our control and a lot of things that are out of it. It’s just been such a trying year for me…I don’t think I’ve had as rough of a year as this one. To come out on top tonight after all the hard work from my dad, Wayne, Hoby…everyone on the team, it’s rewarding to be able to stand up here, especially at this place. I love Attica! I love all you fans…this place is electric and I love being here,” said Wise beside his Sun Dollar Restoration/Quick Pits Auto/Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales/Bill’s Towing and Repair backed #10.

Haudenschild who electrified the crowd all night came home in second.

“I felt good in the car and Ron Jacobs…he’s been with me the last five years and given me a good car and Bryan Grove has helped us a little bit this year. It feels good to get back into it. I’ve got Gravy and Zach Ames working on this and that’s what it takes,” said Haudenschild beside his Ron Jacobs Trucking/Canton Erectors backed #3.

Skylar Gee rounded out the podium.

“I thought we had something for Zeb and Jac. I got by Jac at one point and missed the bottom once and Haud’s up there doing what Haud does…it was a blast racing with him and Zeb and all these guys. It feels good to be back up front. Wished we had some traffic maybe we might have had something to say. I have to thank Mark and Julie and all of our sponsors for keeping us out here,” said Gee beside his Water Treatment by Design/Industrial Controls/Three B Services/Vector Industries backed #07.

Richmond, Indiana’s Steve Casebolt made his first appearance of the season at Attica pay off as the former Eldora Speedway Dream winner led all 25 laps of the Dirt Nerds’ Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature for his third career win at the track. The victory was worth $3,000.

“I always love coming here. I’ve been coming here since I was like 16-17 years old, probably 25, 26, 27 years ago. I want to thank the Bores family for keeping it going strong. I want to thank my head crew guy…my only crew guy right now, Tate Swafford. He works tirelessly on this car and I really appreciate him. I don’t know how good we were tonight but we were good enough to stay out front,” said Casebolt beside his Sudz Equipment Rental/IGk Imaging.com/Rocket Chassis backed machine.

At the drop of the green for the 35 lap All Star feature outside front row starter Shaffer grabbed the lead over Justin Peck, Haudenschild, Wise, Tyler Courtney and Spencer Bayston. Courtney, the current series point leader, took third from Haudenschild on lap five and began to chase down Peck and Shaffer. Shaffer entered lapped traffic by lap 10 and Peck closed while Courtney, Haudenschild and Wise put on a terrific show in their battle for third.

Courtney brought out the first caution on lap 16 just as Peck was challenging Shaffer for the lead. Shaffer got a great restart and kept Peck at bay as Wise and Haudenschild battled for third. Courtney would bring out another caution on lap 18 with the running order Shaffer, Peck, Wise, Haudenschild, Gee.

Just as Wise began to challenge Peck for second, Byron Reed would take a tumble on lap 27; he would walk away unharmed. Second running Peck would go pitside with a cut tire, moving Wise into second. On the restart Wise immediately put pressure on Shaffer but a Cole Macedo flip on lap 27 – he was uninjured – brought the action to a halt.

With eight laps to go and a clear track it looked like Shaffer was headed to victory lane but some sort of mechanical issue hit the leader with six laps to go just as Wise passed for the lead. Wise held off Haudenschild on the restart and drove to the win with Gee, Bayston and Hunter Schuerenberg rounding out the top five.

While Casebolt led all 25 laps of the late model feature it wasn’t easy as cautions early on kept the field close including 16-year-old Colin Shipley who stayed within a couple of car lengths of the leader the entire way. Casebolt took the checkers ahead of Shipley, Devin Shiels who took over the track’s point lead, Mike Bores and last week’s winner Nathon Loney.

Because of the threat of weather times for Saturday’s Attica Ambush have been moved up. Gates will open at 2 p.m. with racing under way at 6 p.m. as the All Stars battle for $10,000 to win with the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints going for $1,000 to win.
