ATTICA, Ohio – Cole Macedo and his Ray Brooks Racing team have been fast all year but little mechanical issues or bad luck has limited the victories. Friday, Aug. 20 the team put that all behind them and the Lemoore, California driver dominated the 410 sprint feature at Attica Raceway Park, winning by nearly five seconds on American Car Wash Systems/Ferguson Waterworks/Morgan Stanley Night presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales.

It was Macedo’s second victory of the year at Attica in the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints and the fifth overall for him in 2021 and was worth $4,000. It also edges him closer to DJ Foos in the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products 410 Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) presented by the Baumann Auto Group standings.

“That just shows how good my car is. We’ve been this fast all year long and just had little things that happened that we’ve learned from and made our car better and it paid off. It’s a dream come true coming here this year and racing for these guys…they treat me so well and give me a great race car every night. I’m just having fun with these guys every night. Even when we don’t win…even when our car breaks we still go home and we have fun. Also wanted to dedicate this win to Jackie Verda…we lost her this week. Hopefully Mike and Chris and the whole family are doing alright,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, T&T Laser Alignments, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Diversified Builders backed #18.

After a thrilling battle early in the Fremont Fence 305 A-main, Fremont’s Matt Foos took the lead from Macedo on lap five and held off a late race charge from both Jamie Miller and Paul Weaver to score his second win of the season at Attica. It was the fourth of his career in the division at “Ohio’s Finest Racing” speed plant.

Foos, Miller and Weaver are locked in a great point battle for the title in the NAPA of Bryan 305 AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales as well.

“We had a lot of top caliber guys out here tonight. I had Cole (Macedo) in front of me…obviously he’s pretty good. He stepped into my world though. We were too good too soon and started falling apart there at the end but it allowed me to get away from everybody and put some distance between us. We had enough to hang on. This is the most wins I’ve had in a year so that’s awesome. We’ve been consistent but were slowly getting there. I screwed myself in qualifying early this year…think we had like eight hard chargers but wins are way cooler. I have to thank Jamie and Renee Adams….they do a ton for me as the car owners. Brian Mitten just came on board this year and Fremont Fence, 818 Club, Stuart Williams at Elite Wings, Doug Berryman with our shocks does a hell of a job, Dave Rohrbacher and Kear’s Speed Shop,” said Foos.

Byron Reed jumped into the early lead of the 410 A-main with Cole Duncan, Macedo, Nate Dussel, Stuart Brubaker and Craig Mintz in pursuit. Macedo grabbed second a lap later before a caution flew for Jamie Miller. On the restart Macedo drove around Reed for the lead and pulled away until a caution for fourth running Brubaker on lap seven.

With a clear track Macedo once again pulled away from Reed, Duncan, Dussel, Mintz and Trey Jacobs. The final caution fell for Sean Rayhall on lap 14, wiping out Macedo’s comfortable advantage. Once the green flew Macedo steadily pulled away while Reed battle with Duncan and Jacobs for second. Duncan slipped off of turn two on lap 20, losing a couple of positions.

While Macedo built a nearly five second lead and Reed running comfortably in second, a tremendous battle for third ensued involving Mintz and Jacobs. Macedo powered to the win over Reed, Jacobs, Mintz and DJ Foos.
