ATTICA, Ohio – Patience paid off for TJ Michael Friday, June 24 at Attica Raceway Park. The Plano, Texas native led the first 15 laps of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group 410 A-main, lost it to Tyler Street, then used a restart with a hand full of laps remaining to his advantage and drove back out front to take his first ever Attica 410 win.

Michael, who admitted his team has struggled this season, credited the hard work of his two crew members, the support of his sponsors and a never-give-up attitude to propel him to the $4,000 pay day on Burns Electric/Metal Master Fabrication Night.

“It’s a lot more fun when you’re running up front and not in the back I can tell you that. I struggled trying to figure out where I needed to be on the race track. I felt okay…I really didn’t feel good at the beginning. Once Tyler got up…I thought he was a lot better than me there towards the middle of the race. I started playing with my wing and moving around and I realized I had been running in the wrong part of the race track. We had a really good car,” said Michael beside his Advanced Cast Stone/Crown Battery/Fremont Fence/Pro-Tech Services/Viva Los Healthy/North Central Services/Kistler Engines backed #8M.

“I have to thank everybody on this car. We’ve struggled all year and they’ve stuck around. And my guys, Jacob and Glenn. If you would have told me pulling into the gate tonight we had a chance to win I would have told you you were funny just the way we’ve been running. But you have to stay positive, gotta stay digging and hopefully we can come back tomorrow and repeat,” added Michael.

Fremont, Ohio’s Jamie Miller held off challenges early from Larry Kingseed Jr. and a late race charge from Matt Foos to score his third Fremont Fence 305 sprint A-main win of the year at Attica. It’s his 34th career 305 win at the track for the three time and defending division champion. It’s the fifth win overall for Miller in 2022 including a win at Fremont Speedway and Waynesfield Motorsports Park. The win also keeps him in the hunt for the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales title.

“It was loose the entire race. I just sucked it up and drove the hell out of it and hoped I could hang on up there. Not a whole lot of cushion left up there in the middle of three and four. We used up every bit that was there,” said Miller beside his Kenny Kalb Farms/JLH General Contractor/Roberts & Sons Contracting/Sonic Hauling/Queen of Clean/Sloppy’s Sports Café/Smitty’s Pizza/Crown Battery/Rohr Total Lawn Care/Schreinder Farms/Reedtown Tavern/Fostoria Mod Shop/Flooring Outlaw/Phil Rister/Carpenter Creative backed #26.
