The F.A.S.T. program this Saturday will be the 2013 season finale for the northwestern Ohio ‘410’ series; as well as the season finale for Fremont Speedway’s individual sprint car point race.
Travis Philo sits tenth (10th) in the current F.A.S.T. standings heading into the 2013 series finale on Saturday, September 7th at Fremont; on the strength of one (1) F.A.S.T. victory during the 2013 season (Attica). The Bowling Green, Ohio native finds himself trailing current F.A.S.T. point leader, and Fremont Speedway point leader, Craig Mintz by 425 markers.
