David Gravel Steals The Brad Doty Classic From Tim Shaffer

Tim Shaffer led all but two of the 40 laps in the Brad Doty Classic on Tuesday at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park, but a late-race move by David Gravel wrested the win from Shaffer's grasp.

Shaffer finished second in one of six heat races that were required to accommodate the massive 58-car field. He won his Dash, which placed him on the pole. Shaffer didn't waste any time shooting out to the lead. He was in lapped traffic by the time seven circuits were in the books, and that allowed Sheldon Haudenschild and Rico Abreu to close the gap.

"I knew I needed to move around," Shaffer said from the horse track that separates the grandstands from the flag stand. "We went low that one time and it went pretty good, but it took so long to get in and I decided I lost a lot. It's one of those deals where you're up front and you're not sure. This is a hard one to lose, but I've won them that way too. It goes both ways. Those guys did a heck of a job, so hats off to them."

Meanwhile, Gravel--who started sixth--picked his way through the field.
