A fast-paced hotlap session on opening night 2013 at Attica Raceway Park
Near a quiet little cemetery in a quant town in North-Central Ohio there is a place where speed and power culminate for an ultimate show of competition and adrenaline.
Attica Raceway Park is in the heart of the Attica Fairgrounds and although locals are used to the rumble of a fast moving train trekking on the property line frequently, the hauling locomotives can’t even begin to hold a candle to the rumble that emits from the speed plant every Friday night and occasional Saturday’s.
