What won the race: Leading 29 of 30 laps, polesitter Doug Drown of Wooster, Ohio, bested fourth-starting Matt Irey for a $2,000 Sunoco American Late Model series victory at Attica Raceway Park. Drown won by 2.428 seconds.
Quotable: “The guys worked their butts off. We broke a header in hot laps. We welded one up," Drown said. "Thanks to Byron Reed and Mike Bores for letting us borrow their welder. My son brought me another one from the house. ... it’s been an adventure in the pits for us. But the car was just phenomenal.”
Key notes: Doug Drown earned his fourth career ALMS victory, all of which have come at Attica. ... He previously won at the track during an April 15 ALMS stop and was also a weekly winner on May 13. ... Fourteen of the feature's 20 starters finished on the lead lap. ... The race was slowed by two cautions, coming on laps 1 and 15. ... ALMS competitors made their second of three scheduled stops at Attica for the opening event of a three-race weekend. ... Action continues Saturday at Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio, and Sunday at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. ... The final ALMS stop at Attica is set for July 29.
On the move: Jon Henry of Ada, Ohio, charged from eighth to round out the podium.
