Taylor Ferns to race winged sprint car at Attica Raceway in Ohio on Saturday

Taylor Ferns, whose recent 410-winged sprint car race schedule has been repeatedly interrupted by rain,  looks to put that behind her this weekend at Northwest Ohio at Attica Raceway Park.
Ferns will be in action with the Fremont Attica Sprint Title (F.A.S.T.) on Saturday in the Jimmy’s Towing/Indy Race Parts Maxim. The racing program will begin with hot laps, followed by time trials, heat races and a 30-lap feature.
“I've been at the race shop helping out every day, so that keeps me focused on it, even if we haven’t been on the track for a few weeks,” Ferns told Ferns Racing PR. “I’ve used a GoPro camera every race this year, so I’ve been going back and watching a lot of the races from earlier this year the last few weeks. Always thinking about racing and having it fresh in your mind is a good way to stay focused.”
Shelby Township resident Ferns, 18, has raced three times at Attica Raceway Park in 2014. She led laps in her debut at the 1/3-mile track on May 9 before a spin relegated her to a 14th-place finish. She finished third in her heat race that night. Ferns returned to Attica on the Fourth of July and came home 16th in the A-Feature. On July 18 at the high-banked bullring, she crossed the finish line 13th. She opened the night by recording the eighth-fastest lap in time trials of the 28 entries and then finished third in the second heat race.
