Hickle gets late race 410 AFCS win at Fremont; Weaver earns 305 victory

By Brian Liskai

FREMONT, Ohio – J.J. Hickle had an ace up his sleeve Saturday, June 24 at Fremont Speedway – crew chief Andy Potter. Hickle, from Quilcene, Wash., grabbed the lead in the 410 sprint feature on lap 22 and drove to his first ever win at “The Track That Action Built” on Willie’s Sales & Service Toro Lawn Mower Night.

It was Hickle’s first win with the Seeling Motorsports team and comes under Potter, who has a habit of getting racers their first wins at Potter’s home track of Fremont Speedway.

Stuart Brubaker grabbed the early lead in the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprint feature but Cap Henry, who came into the night leading the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group points, took the top spot on lap 14 and looked headed to his fifth win of the year at Fremont. But a tangle with a lapped car with 13 to go gave Brubaker back the lead. Hickle pounced on a restart on lap 22 and held off Brubaker for the win.

“It was definitely a tough track tonight. You had to be on your A game every single lap and every single corner. I have to thank Andy Potter, AJ, Joe and Diane Seeling and everybody that supports this deal. This is our first win together and I’m really proud of this team,” said Hickle beside his Ardent Racing, Windsor Construction, Sugar Street Bar and Grill, Herz Precision Products, McIntire Retirement Services backed #97.

Fremont’s Paul Weaver stormed from his 10th starting spot to take the lead with 10 laps to go and then held off a charge from 17th starter Kasey Jedrzejek to earn his second Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature win of the year. Weaver now has 73 career wins at the track to sit third on the all-time win list.

Tyler Shullick led the first two laps before Bryce Lucius drove into the lead. Weaver took the top spot on lap 15 and built up a good lead until a caution on the last lap. Weaver hit his marks perfectly and drove to the win to pad his point lead in the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales as he looks for his fourth straight series title.

“It was rough under yellow. When you got going under speed it wasn’t that bad. You could maneuver around. I probably would have gone up top if I had to. I found something in the middle where you just don’t take off and bounce and you were all right,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting backed #1W.
