Michael scores top-ten during Attica Raceway Park opener

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

FREMONT, Ohio (April 8, 2019) – A midweek decision to visit Attica Raceway Park rather than make the trip to Atomic Speedway for FAST Series action proved to be worth the effort, as the ‘Texas Traveler’ T.J. Michael scored his first top-ten finish of the 2019 season, this time finishing tenth against a stout field who gathered for the Attica opener on Saturday, April 6.

Michael, a Plano, Texas-native who calls Fremont, Ohio, ‘home’ during his racing schedule, put together an impressive evening at the Attica highbanks, ending the event with not only a tenth place finish during feature competition, but Michael kicked off the night with the fifth-fastest time during qualifying time trials, followed by an impressive heat race victory.

“It feels good to put together a solid night at Attica Raceway Park,” T.J. Michael explained, who started fifth on the Attica feature grid. “We are going to be making a lot of visits to Attica this year. Not to mention, there are a lot of big shows there. It’s important we get ourselves ready ahead of time so we can take advantage. I’m excited for the rest of the season. I have a lot of great people who support this race team and believe in me. It’s time for me to give back.”

Although not quite the ending he wanted, T.J. Michael wrapped up his recent weekend with a FAST Series start at Waynesfield (Ohio) Raceway Park on Sunday, April 7. The ‘Texas Traveler’ finished 13th after starting 14th.

Up next on the schedule, T.J. Michael will return to Attica Raceway Park on Friday, April 12, followed by a trip to Fremont (Ohio) Speedway on Saturday, April 13. In addition to Saturday being Fremont Speedway’s 2019 season opener, each evening will feature a full card of Attica/Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) competition.
