Canadian Skylar Gee earns first Attica 410 win

Canadian Skylar Gee survived a restart with just two laps to go and drove to his first career 410 sprint car win at Attica Raceway Park Aug. 19 on American Car Wash Systems/Morgan Stanley Night.
Gee, aboard the Logan Fenton Racing #99, led all 30 laps of the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints A-main, but it wasn’t easy, as Tyler Gunn pressured him several times late in the race but when Gunn jumped the cushion and flipped in turn four with two laps to go, Gee had clear sailing, hitting his marks perfectly on the restart and driving to the victory worth $3,500.
After tangling with Chris Andrews battling for fifth early, Attica point leader Cole Macedo came back to finish second ahead of DJ Foos, who edged Tim Shaffer and Trey Jacobs. Macedo’s rally will add to his point lead in the All-Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann
Auto Group.
“I feel like we should have had a few here, but it’s a tough place to win. That last restart, I see the 18 car (Macedo) behind you, so you know you have to be perfect. I thought I cut two really good laps there at the end. I have to thank my dad, Jack, Tim…they’ve been working hard all year. We haven’t had any luck. It feels like things are turning around and we’re getting up front and win some races,” said Gee beside his Dirt Sharks Excavation/Pack Rat Dumpster, Strong Properties backed machine. “The cautions really helped me…traffic was tough. I tried to give it away early in the race."
In a caution-filled 25-lap Dirt Nerds Podcast/Propane.com UMP Late Model feature Britton, Michigan’s Devin Shiels powered away to a dominating victory, his fourth of the season and 14th of his career at Attica, placing him 5th on the division’s all-time win list. The 2017, 2020 and 2021 Attica late model champion has not finished out of the top five all season at Attica and has seven overall victories in 2022 at various tracks.
Teenager Collin Shipley would get by Mike Bores on the last lap to steal second with BJ Gregory and Larry Bellman rounding out the top five.
“The cushion in three and four was very treacherous. I knew Markham (Ryan) would be up there and I just tried not to screw it up. What year we are having…. this car is just really good,” said Shiels beside his Magic Fountain Auto Wash, Rally’s Hamburgers, Dundee Products, Banshee Graphics, Salenbein Trucking & Excavating backed #51.
Fremont’s Jamie Miller, a three-time and defending Attica champion, drove from eighth to third in just eight laps of the Fremont Fence 305 Sprint A-main and then blasted from third to the lead a lap later and drove away to his fourth win of the season at Attica and his sixth overall victory of 2022. The win was Miller’s 35th career 305 victory at the track and pulls him closer to Paul Weaver in the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales standings.
Kody Brewer drove a fantastic race to finish second with Matt Foos charging from 11th to third followed by 10th starter Kasey Jedrzejek and Jimmy McGrath.
Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, Aug. 26 with the 410 and 305 sprints and UMP late models in action.
