ATTICA, Ohio – Bryce Lucius took advantage of a late race mechanical issue for Cale Thomas and led the final two laps at Attica Raceway Park Friday, March 29 to score his first career 410 sprint feature win to open the 2024 season.

Lucius, who just turned 17 earlier in the month and was the 2023 national 410 rookie of the year, ran in the top three the entire race, but a bobble caused by a steering issue for Thomas with just two laps to go gave Lucius the opportunity to pounce for the lead and the win on Advanced Drainage Systems/Construction Equipment and Supply Night. Nate Dussel led the first 22 laps of the 30-lap affair before Thomas took over, leading until lap 28 when Lucius drove into the lead.

“Scott Bartson had me really good there. I can’t thank my mom, my dad, Scott, Starky and everyone else on this car. I knew we were good from the beginning but I just had to make sure I made the right move at the right time,” said Lucius of his Fremont Fence, CML Transport, Big Red Truck Wash, X-1 Race Cars, Kistler Engines, Shellukes Bar and Grill backed #32.

Nate Dussel led the first 22 laps of the 30-lap affair before Thomas took over, leading until lap 28 when Lucius, from Findlay, Ohio, drove into the lead and the win. Thomas, Dussel, 11th starter Max Stambaugh and Skylar Gee rounded out the top five in the Callies Performance Products 410 Sprints feature.

The 25 lap Dirt Nerds Podcast powered by Propane UMP Late Model feature saw Todd Brennan jump into an early lead but Ionia, Michigan’s Travis Stemler powered into the top spot on lap eight, utilizing lapped traffic for the pass. Stemler was able to pull away for his second career Attica win over Rusty Schlenk, Devin Shiels, John Lee and Ryan Markham.

“I wish they could pick this track up and move it three hours north. I love racing here. The track was tricky and you had to be patient,” said Stemler beside his Great Lakes Directional Drilling, Cusack Collision, Nortan Equipment Sales, C& L Trucking, SP Smillie Contractors, MacAllister CAT Rentals, Summit Health Club, Sharon and Clyde Kinne, Rod-N-Kim, Positive Cleaning backed #4.

The 25-lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprint feature also came down to the closing laps. Dustin Stroup led the first 22 laps, but a bobble allowed four time and defending Attica track champion Jamie Miller to grab the lead and drive to his 40th career Attica win. Stroup, Shawn Valenti, Steve Rando and Seth Schneider rounded out the top five.

“I thought we were in trouble at the start. We had the car way to tight. I just had to drive it harder Forty wins here is just unbelievable. It’s a great start to the year,” said Miller beside his Boca Construction, JLH General Contractors, Kenny Kolb Farms, Tuck Pointing America, Queen of Clean, Smitty’s Pizza, Roberts & Sons Contracting, Pizza Wheel, Crown Battery, Reedtown Tavern, Fostoria Mod Shop, Sandy’s Dad, Gressman Powersports, Phil Rister, Slade Shock Technology, backed #26.

Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, April 5 for Erie Blacktop/Smith Paving Night featuring the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprints, Dirt Nerd Podcast Powered by Propane UMP Late Models and the Fremont Fence 305 Sprints.
