ATTICA, Ohio – Cole Macedo has struggled the last six events at Attica Raceway Park, managing a pair of seventh place finishes as his best performances. His crew chief Steven Linder went to work and it paid off Friday, July 29 as the Lemoore, California native drove to a dominating performance for his second 410 sprint win of the season at the track on Kear’s Speed Shop/Sutton Bank/The Adkins Group Night presented by Integrity Auto and Truck Sales of Bucyrus.

The victory, coupled with mechanical woes for Trey Jacobs put Macedo back into the point lead for the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints at Attica and gave him a huge cushion in the battle for the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group title. Macedo’s fourth career win at Attica is his eighth overall victory in 2022 aboard the Ray Brooks Racing #18.

“Here lately at Attica I haven’t had the most confidence in myself and in my car. Me and Steven actually got into a little bit last week…just hot tempers…just couldn’t get going here. But man he did his homework this week and made this thing really nice. These guys were in my way out there he had it so good. Really easy to drive like that when your car is really nice so thanks to him for getting us better and regaining that point lead and putting on a show. What a year….I can’t thank Ray Brooks enough. He and his family are here tonight. He gives us the equipment that it takes to win races,” said Macedo beside his Fremont Auto Parts, Grant Decker Construction, Linder’s Speed Equipment, Gill Construction, CK Mechanical, ML Graphics, Catawba Island Club, Durst backed machine.

Fremont, Ohio’s Paul Weaver dominated the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main, leading all 25 laps for his third win of the season. It’s the five time division champion’s 67th career victory in the 305 sprints and 70th total wins at the track. Weaver has six total wins in 2022, also recording three at Fremont Speedway.

With the win, Weaver, who hasn’t finished out of the top four all season at Attica, regains the point lead by a narrow margin over defending track champion Jamie Miller who finished second in the feature. The win did give Weaver a little more breathing room in the chase for the title of the NAPA of Bryan Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales.

“When you’re leading you get paranoid and you hear things…the motor is going to blow up and the tire is going to go flat. You hear all kinds of stuff. You have to have a good tire at the end. You can’t run the middle of the track and burn it up trying to pass two lapped cars. It don’t make sense. As you get older you learn a few things,” said Weaver beside his Steve Brown’s B&B Drain Service, Hampshire Racing Engines, M&L Excavating, Seagate Sandblasting, Fostoria Mod Shop backed #31.

In the 30-lap 410 sprint feature, Caleb Griffith jumped into the early lead over eight time track champion Byron Reed, TJ Michael, Macedo and DJ Foos. A caution on lap three wiped out a big lead for Griffith as did another yellow on laps seven and 10. On the restart following the last caution, Macedo pounced pulling alongside and then taking the lead.

Macedo pulled away and only a caution for Griffith with six laps to go gave the rest of the field a chance. Macedo executed a great restart and drove away for the win over Foos, 13th starter Travis Philo, Reed and Craig Mintz.



Weaver and Jamie Miller – who account for 100 combined 305 feature wins at Attica – brought the field to green for the 25 lap A-main. Weaver bolted into the lead in a race that had only one caution, a lapped car spun right in front of the leader on lap nine.

Weaver was never challenged for the lead as Miller, a charging Matt Foos, Bryan Sebetto and Mike Keegan rounded out the top five.

Attica Raceway Park will be off a couple of weeks for the Attica Independent Fair but will resume action on Friday, Aug. 19 with the AFCS 410 and 305 sprints and late models in action.
