Rico Abreu scores $10,000 in Attica Ambush finale at Attica Raceway Park

Rico Abreu scores $10,000 in Attica Ambush finale at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (September 5, 2020) - It did not come easy, but St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu left the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing” on Saturday evening as an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 winner, scoring the Attica Ambush finale at Attica Raceway Park for a $10,000 payday. Abreu, who started second on the feature grid, led the final 27 circuits to nail down the five-figure winner’s share, but was forced to fend off the likes of Trey Jacobs and Aaron Reutzel along the way.

His first since cashing in for $5,000 at Muskingum County Speedway in July, Abreu is now a two-time All Star winner in 2020, bumping his career total to nine in the process.

Two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, finished second in the Ambush finale, followed by Cap Henry, Ian Madsen and Trey Jacobs.

“That’s an intense 40 laps here,” an elated Rico Abreu said in victory lane, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Curb Records/Lucas Oil Products/Whistle Stop Bar and Grill/Self Made Racing/Salty’s BBQ/Dancer Logistics/J. Davidson Scrap Metals/Wiser Golf/ShopRico.com/No. 24 sprint car. “You really have to be patient and know that your car is going to keep coming to you. Wow, what a crowd. This is great for Attica.”

Although starting from the outside-pole position, it was polesitter and Wooster, Ohio-native Trey Jacobs who earned the initial jump, driving away from Abreu and Cale Thomas to lead the first circuit. A caution on lap two would freeze the running order the first time giving Abreu a second chance at snagging command. The ensuing restart would prove to do Abreu a favor, ultimately utilizing his momentum to sneak up on Jacobs and capture the lead by lap five.

Despite Abreu’s attempts in maintaining a quick pace around the outer edge of the speedway, it was Jacobs who kept his focus on the bottom and eventually tracked down the leader, first losing a drag race on the frontstretch before regaining control officially on lap 12. A caution on lap 13 would pause the race yet again giving Abreu another chance to restart on the tailtank of Jacobs. As displayed before, Abreu took advantage of the restart and worked up enough momentum to slingshot around Jacobs on lap 14.

In the meantime, Aaron Reutzel was on the move, powering his way to third from sixth by lap 15 before getting by Jacobs to take second with 25 circuits in. By lap 30, the heat was on between Abreu and Reutzel, racing nearly nose-to-tail for the next several circuits. The Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry showed Abreu its nose on a few occasions, and even with periods of slower traffic playing in Reutzel’s favor, Abreu never faltered. At the finish, Abreu and Reutzel were separated by a mere-1.08 seconds.

“I knew Reutzel was pressuring me, or somebody was pressuring me. You can kinda sense those things,” Rico Abreu continued. “I moved around, but I was just way too free on the bottom. I could keep my car really propped up on the top. Just hats off to my team. We enjoy coming to Attica and we’re already looking forward to coming back.”

“That was all I had,” Aaron Reutzel said after finishing second. “I didn’t realize the race was about to end when it did. I’m not sure what more I could have done. I got to where I could run the top really hard and he started to get tight. I tried to move to the bottom with the intent to get him to move to the bottom, which he did for a little bit, but I didn’t capitalize. I felt like my car was getting better and better, but it was so hard to get runs.”
