Atomic’s East Coast Nationals double as Hyatt Memorial for Ohio RaceSaver Series

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (April 10, 2024) – IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car teams and fans will remember one of their own when Atomic Speedway hosts the inaugural East Coast Nationals Chad Hyatt Memorial.

The Saturday, April 20 Ohio Thunder IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Series main event at Chillicothe pays $3,500 to win and a minimum of $300 to start. IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing National, Ohio State and series points are also at stake.

Hyatt, a RaceSaver driver and race director for the Ohio Thunder series, died last August at the age of 54.

“Chad is the one who originally contacted me about bringing 305 Sprint Cars back to Atomic,” explained promoter Charlie Vest. “We thought it fitting that we hold a special race like this as a memorial for him.”

Local division sponsor Holdren Construction of Chillicothe adds to the purse for the evening.

Pit gates open at 1 p.m. on race day, with the front gate opening at 3 p.m., hot laps at 4 p.m. and racing at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Entry fee is $20 and pit passes are $35. Spectator admission is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors ages 60 and over, $10 for students ages 11-16 and free for kids 10 and under.

More information is available from Vest at 740 703-9749.
