Ohio dirt race fan will tell you that the number one place to be on
Independence Day Weekend is at Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield,
Ohio for the highly talked about Bob Reynolds Memorial. Since the shows
infancy, promoter Ron Hammons has continued to up the ante each and
every year putting on the best race possible for the fans. For the 2015
edition of the famed race, Hammons has done just that. In an
announcement just before the holidays, Hammons revealed the addition of
the Fremont/Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T) 305 Championship Series to the
agenda of the Independence evening race. The race opens a new chapter
for the F.A.S.T series, making history by being the first ever
appearance off the shores of Lake Erie. The 305 drivers will be
competing for a $1000 payday, $150 for making the competitive field, and
$75 for each driver not making it into the A-main.
The addition of the F.A.S.T series to the Bob Reynolds Memorial event on July 4th
was just half of the announcements promoter Ron Hammons made Friday
afternoon. The UMP Modifieds were announced to be returning for the
fourth edition of the famed race running for a $3000 cash payday. The
UMP Modifieds also have a chance to pick up an extra $1,000 to win at
Limaland Motorsports Park the night before and a provisional for the Bob
Reynolds event. Also returning to the event is the ever-popular NRA 360

For Immediate Release:
Attention Buckeye Machine Non Wing sprint car participants, we have decided to make a change regarding our tire rules for the 2014 season. Starting June 1st, 2014 all sprint cars will be required to run a Hoosier Medium 105/16 right rear tire only. The other three corners of the car will remain Hoosier (any compound). Until June 1st you can continue to run any compound Hoosier on all four corners. We feel that not only will this save the racer $40 per RR tire it will also put everyone on the same tire.
As always, we thank you for your support and look forward to another great season of racing in this class.
New to WRP this season we will be creating and using an email list for notifications, results, news and press releases. If you want to most up to date info for WRP make sure to sign up for this email link below. This will allow fans, drivers, media, etc., to add, delete, and update their email addresses.

In order to qualify for Rookie of the Year honors you must not have raced in the division at our facility or any other facility in the past. We are wanting to honor new drivers to the divisions as we have seen a huge increase in drivers moving up or starting out in our divisions.
