Zeb Wise claims Attica Ambush finale for $12,000 payday

ATTICA, Ohio (September 2, 2023) - It was close to a weekend sweep at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio, but Rudeen Racing’s Zeb Wise stepped in with other plans, ultimately concluding the speedway’s annual Attica Ambush presented by Janet Holbrook with a feature score. The victory, a $12,000 prize - the richest Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 prize in the track’s history - bumped Wise’s All Star victory count to four at the home of “Ohio’s Finest Racing,” now with 11-career All Star triumphs to his name, seven of which occurring during the 2023 season.

Although Wise was able to turn up the volume late, it was Friday night winner, Kerry Madsen, who claimed the early race lead, driving on to command the first 17 circuits before being overtaken by the Rudeen Racing No. 26. A mid-race caution on lap 16 is what set the winning tone for Wise, earning a great restart to take third from “Sunshine” Tyler Courtney, then sliding by Madsen in turn four just two circuits later.

Courtney would eventually follow Wise by Madsen the following lap, and despite wave after wave of two and three wide traffic, Wise held strong, leading Courtney, Madsen, Kyle Reinhardt, and Chris Windom to the final checkers.

“Just by the way my car was handling, I knew I’d be good late. But as the race went on, I started to struggle more and more. Especially with traffic,” Angola, Indiana’s Zeb Wise, driver of the Rudeen Racing/Rayce Rudeen Foundation No. 26 sprint car, said. “The lapped guys were having a race of their own, and they were putting on one heck of a show, I just didn’t know where I needed to go. I’m not sure where Tyler [Courtney] was behind me, but I knew he had to be close.

“Just hats off to this entire team,” Wise added. “We struggled some last night, but they gave me one heck of a race car tonight. They really make my job easy. Hats off to all of the fans. I love being at Attica and we love racing here.”


The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2023 campaign with a trip to Port Royal, Pennsylvania’s Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Thursday through Saturday, September 7-9. The 55th Annual Tuscarora 50 will be the weekend headliner, highlighted by back-to-back $10,000-to-win preliminaries on Thursday and Friday, all of which followed by the 50-lap, $55,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 finale on Saturday. The three-day spectacle will be the All Stars’ final visit to the Keystone State this season.
