MAUMEE, OH (10-23-12) By Bryan Autullo – F.A.S.T. Public Relations
The Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) wants to remind race teams and fans that on Saturday, November 10th the annual awards celebration takes place to crown our series champions and award the top-10 in points in both the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Championship Series presented by Engine Pro and KS Sales & Service and the F.A.S.T. 305 Championship Series. All drivers must be present to receive their point fund check and to be eligible for prizes.
This event will be held at the American Legion – Post 121 – located at 2000 Buckland Avenue in Fremont, Ohio. It is a casual affair, as it has been in past years, and is open to drivers, teams, fans and sponsors who want to enjoy a night of fun, music and bench racing. The evening will filled with point fund money, awards and contingency prizes being handed out to the top drivers that compete in both the 410 and 305 sprint car ranks at Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park.
In addition, there were five 410 drivers who competed in all the 2012 F.A.S.T. Series events, but did not finish in the top-10 in points. Those drivers (Brian Lay, Brad Bowman, Todd Heller, Jody Keegan, and Travis Philo) are all eligible for prize give-aways from the series sponsors. In the F.A.S.T. 305 Series, there were three drivers who had perfect attendance, but did not make the top-10 (Jimmy Colvin, Jordan Ryan, and Jess Stiger). They are also eligible for the prize give-aways and nobody will go home empty handed at the end of the night.
“We have some really nice prizes to give away again this year,” stated Scott Porter of F.A.S.T. “Thanks to our marketing partners we will be able to hand out around $35,000 in cash and a lot of great prizes such as Weld Wheels, tank shells from Fuel Safe, top and nose wings from Wings Unlimited, kits from Rod End Supply, a G-Force helmet and several certificates worth $250 to $500 cash.”
Tickets are just $10.00 each and includes a meal. Drivers MUST attend in order to receive cash and prizes. Two free tickets were provided to each team in the Top 10 (for the driver and car owner). All others will need to purchase tickets in advance of Saturday, November 8th. No tickets to the dinner and awards ceremony portion of the night will be sold at the door.
Mike Risner of the band “Quick Shine” will provide acoustic guitar entertainment when the doors open at 4 pm through the meal portion of the program. There will also be a cash bar, which usually makes the award ceremony portion of the evening something to remember. A buffet style meal (BBQ chipped ham and shredded beef sandwiches along with pasta salad, baked beans, cole slaw and chips) will be served at 5 pm and the awards will start around 6 pm in an effort to get everyone who attends this event back on the road early if they need to.
But the night isn’t over once the checks and awards have been past out as Columbus, Ohio based Aaron Buckley & The Buckin’ Ugly Band will take to the stage at the American Legion shortly after the awards ceremony to kickoff the Toys For Tots After-Party. All banquet attendees can stay for the event with their banquet ticket at no additional charge. Anyone who only wishes to show up for the late night portion of the program can pay a $5.00 cover at the door, but can bring an unwrapped, unopened toy to donate for $2.00 off.
“This year we’ve also secured a band to play after the award ceremony to benefit Toys-For-Tots,” says Porter. “We have been involved with Toys-For-Tots in the past with our FASTfest events and with the holiday season right around the corner it only makes sense to take this opportunity to help out this amazing charity. Country music artist Aaron Buckley will carry the after-party into the night at the request of our 2012 Champion Bryan Sebetto. Aaron plays a wide range of covers from the likes of Johnny Cash to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Zack Brown Band.”
Fans are encouraged to attend as the F.A.S.T. organization strives to bring fans and drivers under one roof in an effort to create a mutual bond. This celebration has been well attended in past years and a good time has been had by all. Please plan to join us as we recap the 2012 season and crown Bryan Sebetto as the Kistler Racing Products F.A.S.T. Champion and D.J. Foos as the F.A.S.T. 305 Champion. We will also honor 410 sprint car drivers Craig Mintz, Dean Jacobs, Phil Gressman, Byron Reed, Mike Linder, Chris Andrews, Brian Smith, Duane Zablocki and Stuart Brubaker (2012 F.A.S.T. Rookie of the Year), as well as, 305 sprint car competitors Nate Dussel, Dustin Dinan, John Ivy, Jamie Miller, Paige Polyak, Steve Rando, Jason Keckler, Matt Merrill and Tyler Gunn.
