SWEENEY RUSH LATE MODELS RELEASE TENTATIVE 2020 TOURING SERIES SCHEDULE; DRIVERS SET TO COMPETE FOR RICHEST TOUR POINT FUND IN HISTORY WITH $12,000 TO THE CHAMPION; KICKS OFF WITH "BATTLE AT THE BAY" APRIL 15-18
(Pulaski, PA)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Touring Series powered by Pace Performance is ready to head into the new decade full speed ahead! The 2020 RUSH Late Model Touring Series Championship point fund will nearly double with the champion capturing $12,000 (see complete point fund below). The dramatic increase in the point fund quickly turned the heads of many and is expected to draw even more well known Crate Late Model racers from throughout the region to an already stout field of competitors! RUSH is proud to release the tentative 2020 schedule that will get underway April 15-18 for the "Battle of the Bay" Mid-Atlantic Speedweek.
 
Highlighting the current 18-event slate is the prestigious $10,000 to-win "Bill Emig Memorial", which returns to Lernerville in conjunction with the renowned "Firecracker 100" weekend with the World of Outlaws Late Models. Also featured in the schedule include the "Jook George Steel City Classic" and "Bill Hendren Memorial" events at Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway, which have continued to grow in stature; these events paid $10,010 and $5,000 to-win respectively in 2019. Six other weekends have two or more complete shows minimizing travel for competitors.
 
"After coming off our richest Touring slate which resulted in our highest average car count in history we're looking forward to keeping the forward momentum going in 2020," acknowledged Emig. "Last year, the schedule of events went to a different level and that translated into an average of more than 38 cars for our events, often exceeding 40 plus cars and over 50 on three different occasions. With that said, we felt it was time to substantially increase our point fund and look forward to our 2020 champion earning a record $12,000 with all other points paying positions increasing greatly! Our slate of substantial paying Tour events combined with our richest ever Tour point fund is definitely going to create an awesome situation for both RUSH fans and Crate Late Model racers throughout the region!"
 
The 2020 schedule will get underway with the third annual "Battle of the Bay" Mid-Atlantic Speedweek April 15-18, that last year saw drivers from eight states and Canada compete. The Speedweek will kick-off once again at Delaware International Speedway in Delmar for the second annual "Raelyn Huffman Memorial" paying $4,000 to-win. Thanks to the promoters of Georgetown, Potomac, and Winchester Speedways, their events will once again be $3,000 to-win.
 
Besides the increase in to the standard Tour payoffs, there will again be a $3,000 point fund for the top 10 RUSH members in points over the four nights with $1,000 going to the champion. There will also be a $150 travel package for any Tour driver in the top 12 from 2019 that participates in at least the opening event. Seven of the eight scheduled "Battle of the Bay" events have been completed all-time with a minimum of 40 cars at all events. Last year's 53 cars at Delaware set a "Battle of the Bay" record. Max Blair topped 2018 champion, Logan Roberson, to win the "Battle of the Bay" crown.
 
DIS, under the direction of veteran promoter Charlie Cathell, has completed three successful seasons under the RUSH banner with increasing weekly car counts. Georgetown meanwhile is located just 20 miles from DIS, and promoter Brett Deyo will be entering his fourth season of having RUSH sanction his Crate Late Model races with a separate point fund that's new for 2020. Friday and Saturday sister speedways, Potomac and Winchester, have led the tremendous growth of Crate Late Model racing in the Mid-Atlantic as both will embark on their seventh season under the RUSH banner with track owner Greg Gunter and general manager Denise Hollidge.
 
After a month off, the Touring Series returns to Stateline Speedway for the fourth consecutive year for the "Bill Law Memorial" on May 16. The 2017 event was the first ever Tour event at the Busti, NY oval in the 10-year history of Crate Late Models in the Northeast as a big crowd watched a thriller as Jeremy Wonderling held off standout and track dominator Max Blair for the victory. The 2018 event was just as good as Damian Bidwell made a late race pass of Scott Gurdak for his first Tour win in more than three years. And last year, saw Wonderling hold off Blair and withstand a mid-race rain delay to top a record Stateline field of 33 cars.
 
The Stateline event is annually held in memory of the late Bill Law, who pioneered the Crate Late Model concept in the Northeast as a car owner for several racers including his son Jon. Law's grandson, Kyle Murray, carries on the family tradition as he currently competes in the RUSH Late Models. Kyle finished 10th in points in 2019 in his first year on the Tour.
 
The following night (Sunday, May 17), Eriez Speedway will host a "Marquee" event giving racers back-to-back $2,000 to-win shows within just a 40-mile distance. Located just outside of Erie, Pa., this will be year number two of ownership for Dave Alexander, who will again host weekly Sunday night RUSH Late Model racing. There have been seven RUSH Tour events completed all-time at Eriez and the Blairs have won all seven with Max winning six and his father Rob one in a substitution role for Max.
 
For the fourth straight year, Outlaw and Genesee Speedways in New York have teamed up to host back-to-back $2,000 to-win "Marquee" Events on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30. Outlaw's show will again be dubbed as the "Gary Montgomery Memorial". The last three Outlaw races have been tremendous as former BRP Can-Am racers Bryce Davis (2017) and Jeremy Wonderling (2018-2019) winning in memory of BRP Series founder Montgomery. Wonderling then ended Jason Genco's two straight Genesee Tour wins, which was part of his three-race win streak in 2019. Tyler Siri has done a tremendous job at transforming Outlaw Speedway, while Genesee promoter Jim Johnson hosts a very successful Saturday night weekly program featuring the RUSH Late Models at the Genesee County Fairgrounds in Batavia.
 
The most anticipated Crate Late Model race in the history of the Northeast took place last year at Lernerville Speedway as part of the track's "Firecracker 100" with the World of Outlaws Late Models. The $10,000 to-win "Bill Emig Memorial" sponsored by Hovis Auto & Truck Supply attracted 53 cars with Max Blair making a late race pass of Ross Robinson to win what was at the time the richest race in RUSH history in front of the huge crowd. The event will return in 2020 once again sponsored by Hovis June 25-27.  
 
For the second straight year, Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway will host a trio of Tour events. The first show will be on Saturday, July 4 for the "Herb Scott Memorial". In 2019, Kyle Lukon swept all three PPMS events and pocketed $18,800 in route to a second place point finish in his first season on the Tour! Miley Motor Sports features the RUSH Late Models as their headlining division on Saturday nights at the "Monster Half Mile". PPMS is a great partner of RUSH also hosting numerous events for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds and RUSH Sprint Cars.
 
The return to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio on Saturday, July 18 has long been anticipated by drivers throughout the region. The RUSH Late Models last appeared at the 3/8-mile showplace in 2016 with a pair of Tour events. That was prior to the new red clay surface that has produced tremendous racing in recent years. The RUSH Late Models ran weekly at Sharon from 2011-2014. Will Thomas III is the division's all-time winner with 13 victories. Details surrounding the event are being finalized and will be announced soon that are sure to make it a must attend for western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio race fans! This will be a big night for RUSH as the RUSH Sprint Cars and RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will also be on the card. A possible second Tour date could take place on Friday, September 11.

 
One night later on July 19, Eriez Speedway will host the annual "Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance for their second Tour race of 2020. The last time Eriez hosted "Manufacturers Night" was 2015 and attracted 47 cars, which is also the average car count for the event over the eight-year history since the MFG Night debuted in 2012. Over $30,000 of valuable and useful products is typically distributed to competing racers on this night. Sharon and Eriez are just 80 miles apart and will serve as a great back-to-back night of racing.
 
For the fourth time, the "Jook George Steel City Classic" at PPMS will be a Tour event. The "Jook George" will take place on Saturday, August 8 with the exact payoff of this prestigious event TBA. The 2018 event attracted a record 51 cars and saw Jacob Hawkins take home $5,010. At last year's event presented by Zarin Truck & Automotive, Kyle Lukon left PPMS with a RUSH event record $11,610 payday thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Branden Lockwich.
 
The RUSH Late Models will once again invade one of the country's most state-of-the-art dirt track facilities, Weedsport Speedway, on September 12. In 2018, John Waters won the first ever RUSH-sanctioned event that was also the first ever nationally televised Crate Late Model race, while last year saw Max Blair win in his first visit to the speedway. This year's event will again be broadcast by MAVTV thanks to Sunoco Race Fuels distributed by Insinger Performance. This time however, instead of a midweek July show, will move to a Saturday night in September and join up with the Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modifieds for the first time ever!
 
For the only time of the season and first in many years, back-to-back Tour events will take place at the same facility on the same weekend! Genesee Speedway will play host to the Tour on Friday and Saturday, September 25-26 with $2,000 to-win each night. It'll also be the first time Genesee has hosted back-to-back Tour events and first time the track has scheduled three events in the same season. The Saturday show will be the "Traveling Manufacturers Night" presented by MSD Performance with product giveaways for the top 15 drivers in track points at Fulton, Genesee, Humberstone, and Woodhull. The RUSH Sprint Cars will also run a complete show each night as part of their third annual "Empire State Classic".
 
For the fifth straight year, the Tour will be part of the "Pittsburgher 100" with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on October 2-3. The "Bill Hendren Memorial" has been increasing in stature in recent years with $4,000 to the winner in 2018 and $5,000 last year, which was won by Kyle Lukon. Not only has the feature purse increased, but so has the "One to Remember" Non-Winners race along with the Non-Qualifier. Sponsors such as Pro Fabrication, FK Rod Ends, Pace Performance, CrateInsider.com, the Hendren Family, and others have stepped up to really make this into a major event. In 2005, Bill Hendren, the patriarch of the Hendren family and founder of Hendren Racing Engines, had the foresight to began building his affiliation with crate racing.
 
All Tour events in 2020 will again pay a minimum of $2,000 to-win, $225 to-start with a $200 to-win non-qualifier, and guaranteed $125 tow money with over. All events will utilize the group qualifying format featuring $100 FK Rod Ends "Shock the Clock Qualifying" and $25 to-win FK Rod End heat races.
 
The "500 Club" presented by Zarin Truck & Automotive will return for the second consecutive year. Five drivers from the host speedway's top 15 in points (or the closest two nearby tracks if not at a weekly-sanctioned track) the ability to win an additional $100 bonus at Tour events! The "500" Club will influx an approximate $8,000 of cash into the hands of RUSH "weekly" racers who participate in RUSH Touring events! The "$500 Club" will take place at all Tour events with the exception of the two "Manufacturers Nights".
 
2020 RUSH Late Model Touring Series Points Fund ($35,500 guaranteed): 1. $12,000 2. $6,000 3. $4,000 4. $3,000 5. $2,500 6. $2,000 7. $1,800 8. $1,600 9. $1,400 10. $1,200.

SWEENEY RUSH SPORTSMAN MODIFIEDS TO BE FEATURED BI-WEEKLY AT RACEWAY 7 IN 2020; EVENTS PART OF $3,500 TO-WIN HOVIS WEEKLY SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP PLUS NEW $1,000 TO-WIN "ROUTE 7 RUMBLE" SERIES PRESENTED BY WEDGE MOTORSPORTS WITH SHARON & MORE

(Conneaut, OH)...The Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Sportsman Modified Series powered by Pace Performance is excited to announce that Raceway 7 will host the division on a bi-weekly basis in 2020! The 7/16-mile Conneaut, Ohio track's events will be part of the Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Championship plus there will be a separate "Route 7 Rumble" cumulative point fund series presented by Wedge Motorsports for the Raceway 7 and Sharon Speedway events! Raceway 7 will rotate the Street Stocks and RUSH Mods throughout the season with both running bi-weekly. In addition, Raceway 7 will have a five-position weekly track point fund for both the RUSH Mods and Stocks!
 
Raceway 7 used to be a hotbed for weekly Big-Block Modified racing from 1975-1989, but since has only ran special events for various Northeast center-steer Modifieds divisions. Five RUSH Sportsman Modified events have been contested in the history of the division at Raceway 7 with five different winners! Adam Hilton and Dave Conant, Jr. won events during the inaugural 2014 season. After a four-year hiatus from Raceway 7, Justin Shea won a thrilling event in 2018. This past season saw Chas Wolbert and Rob Kristyak share victories during the month of June.
 
"We were thrilled when the McDonalds called about bringing the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds to Raceway 7 on a bi-weekly basis in 2020," stated RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The shows there over the years have been exciting and racers are always wanting to race there more. The RUSH Mods will give Raceway 7's fans something different to watch throughout the season, and rekindle some of the Modified memories from years gone by. Raceway 7 just concluded their second year running our RUSH Late Models weekly and averaged a strong 21 cars per night for their weekly events."
 
The "Route 7 Rumble" Series presented by Wedge Motorsports will be a new point fund for 2020. A cumulative point system for all races between Raceway 7 and Sharon will be used with the top eight drivers in points sharing $2,500 with $1,000 going to the champion! Drivers must be a RUSH member to be eligible for the point fund.
 
It was already announced in the fall that the 2020 Hovis Auto & Truck Supply Weekly Series Champion for the Sweeney RUSH Mods will take home $3,500 with an increase in all 20 points-paying positions! Each points-paying position will increase from $100-$500, which represents a 36% increase over the 2019 points fund, and marks the second point fund increase since the Series debuted in 2014!
 
"We're coming off a season where more drivers participated than ever in the division," stated Emig. "Sharon has averaged between 24-28 cars each of the last four years and only on four nights during that period has the car count dipped below 20 cars- an almost unheard of statistic for weekly racing today! With all that said, we were pleased to increase the Weekly point fund for 2020, and now with the addition of the Raceway 7 events it'll be possible for a driver to win $4,500 not even counting the point funds at each track and the Touring Series! We're excited about the upcoming season and the continued forward momentum of the division."
 
The 2020 season for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will open up on Friday, April 11 at Tyler County Speedway for an $800 to-win Hovis Touring Series event part of "RUSH Night" at "The Bullring" in Middlebourne, West Virginia. A complete schedule of events for the RUSH Sportsman Modifieds will be announced soon.

(Pulaski, PA)...Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Racing Series powered by Pace Performance Directors Vicki Emig and Mike Leone are pleased to announce that for the third straight year, the "Battle of the Bay Speedweek" will kickoff the new season for the Late Model Touring Series. The four-race Speedweek will take place April 15-18, 2020 at Delaware International, Georgetown, Potomac, and Winchester Speedways. It was recently announced that the 2020 Tour point fund was nearly doubled with $12,000 going to the champion!

 
For the second straight year, the opening round at DIS will be designated as the "Raelyn Huffman Memorial" paying a minimum of $4,000 to-win, $300 to-start! Also for the second straight year, the events at Georgetown, Potomac, and Winchester will pay $3,000 to-win, $250 to-start thanks to the continued strong support of these shows.
 
Once again, there will be a $3,000 "Battle of the Bay" point fund for RUSH member racers that will pay $1,000 to-win down 10 positions providing at least three of the events are completed. If two events are completed, the point fund will be pro-rated. And in addition, a $150 travel package will again be available for each competing top 12 drivers in 2019 Sweeney Tour points. Driver must compete in at least two events including the first race of Speedweek to be eligible.
 
"You're not going to find a better deal for crate racing than this Battle of the Bay," stated Max Blair after winning last year's Georgetown event. "Huge props to Mike (Leone) and Vicki (Emig) along with all of the race tracks. This is a really, really good deal for crate guys. It's the best stretch deal going in the country for us. This is a really stout field of race cars and to be able to win the first two nights is pretty awesome."
 
The 2019 "Battle of the Bay" saw 62 different drivers compete from eight different states (Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, Ohio, and South Carolina) plus Ontario, Canada in the three completed events as the Potomac show was rained out. Thirty-five drivers participated in all three events (DIS, Georgetown & Winchester), which was an increase of seven from the 28 that participated in all 2018 events. The opening event at DIS attracted 53 cars, which was a "Battle of the Bay" record and matched the "Bill Emig Memorial" as the season high car count.  Seven of the eight scheduled "Battle of the Bay" events have been completed over the two years with no less than 40 cars at any of the events!
 
"The 'Battle of the Bay' has been tremendous the last two years," acknowledged RUSH Director Vicki Emig. "The drivers have really supported it each of the last two years and have been rewarded with increased payoffs, the point fund, and travel money. It's an honor to again have the Huffman Family utilize RUSH and the 'Battle of the Bay' to hold Raelyn's memorial event at Delaware. We have to thank the promoters of these great speedways for continuing to allow us to open our Touring season in such a great fashion. This year's events are once again going to be an incredible kickoff to the $12,000 to-win championship!"  
 
Ray and Brenda Huffman have been heavily involved in racing over the years with their R&J Poultry business and have sponsored RUSH Late Model drivers such as Max Blair and Cody Dawson. Shortly after the 2018 "Battle of the Bay", Raelyn lost her life in a tragic accident. Ray Huffman is Raelyn's father, while Brenda is her step-mother. Raelyn's mother is Billie Jo Justice and her step-father is Tim Justice.    
 
Raelyn was 22 years old and from Delmar, DE- the home of Delaware International Speedway. Raelyn graduated from nearby Seaford High School and worked for Lowe's Home Improvement. She loved her job, racing, and any four-legged furry friends. Raelyn spent her weekends growing up at the races; from Friday nights at the go-kart track, Saturday nights watching RUSH Late Models, and Sundays at the US 13 Dragway with her longtime boyfriend, Matt Adams.
 
"It was just part of her lifestyle and that is why we we're so adamant on perusing this memorial race," explained Raelyn's sister Shelby. "She was a beautiful girl with a smile that could light up a room and a laugh that was completely contagious. We are so proud of her and how much of an amazing person she turned out to be. We love and miss her everyday and we strive to pass on her memory and share stories that celebrate her life. Our family, the Lowe's family and the racing community lost a very loved and valued member, and we all miss her very much. There are many memories that our family, co-workers and friends share that we will always cherish, but there are so many we didn't get to make. She was a one of a kind girl with a big heart, a bright smile and a loving nature. There aren't words for how loved and missed she is."

FASTRAK to honor Future Stars Tour Championship payout
 

Officials with the FASTRAK Future Stars Tour have announced that the championship payout will be honored after the series’ only event at Toccoa Raceway on June 12th. Trae Kirk of Monroe, GA picked up the win in the teenager-only series’ inaugural event. Kirk will be honored as the FASTRAK Future Stars Tour Champion at the FASTRAK Night of Champions banquet on January 25th in Greenville, SC. Montgomery Homes was the sponsor of the $2,500 to win championship point fund for the FASTRAK Future Stars Tour.

“These young men deserve to be recognized at our Night of Champions banquet,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “They are the future of our sport and have bright careers ahead of them. A special thanks to the teams who participated in the series and to Montgomery Homes for supporting this series for young drivers.”

Kyle Stallard of Gate City, VA will be honored as the series’ runner-up at the Night of Champions banquet. They will be part of the awards ceremony that will include both the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance and all regions of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series.

Both Kirk and Stallard were members and competed in the lone series race in 2019, qualifying them for the points fund per the FASTRAK Future Stars Tour rulebook.

“We are going to pay these guys their point fund, as we always have and always will, even though there was only one race,” said FASTRAK Founder Stan Lester, “It wasn’t their fault that there were no more races, and they held to their commitment and so will we.”

 

FASTRAK offers $1 weekly sanctioning for tracks

It has never been easier or cheaper for a dirt track to gain sanctioning with one of the nation’s premier sanctioning bodies.  Tracks who wish to become members of the FASTRAK Racing Series banner can now do so for just $1 per year in sanctioning fees as part of a new partnership with DealergroupUSA.

FASTRAK announced the reduced sanctioning fee Tuesday on its Facebook page, part of an effort to increase affordability for weekly sanctioning and bring more tracks into the FASTRAK family.
“Thanks to our new partnership with DealergroupUSA, we are able to implement this new idea for weekly

sanctioning,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “This makes the entire program more affordable for our tracks. Without tracks, the drivers don’t have a place to race and fans won’t have a place to watch the races. We want to do our part to help tracks remain open.”

FASTRAK member tracks pay out points towards FASTRAK’s National Weekly Championship.  In 2019, Kyle Thomas was awarded $5,000 as the FASTRAK National Weekly Champion, but FASTRAK has pledged to provide a $30,000-to-win National Championship and a points fund paying through the top 50 positions if 20 weekly tracks can commit to the FASTRAK Racing Series averaging 12 cars per week.

 

Any tracks that run Pro Late Models as a weekly division or are considering adding them to their weekly program are encouraged to contact DJ Irvine at 706-223-3014 or by email at dj@fastrakracing.com.

ULTIMATE Throwback race coming in 2020

In recent years, the NASCAR Cup Series’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway (SC) has added to its fan allure by becoming a signature throwback race.  The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series hopes to bring that same excitement to Lake View Motor Speedway (SC) with a throwback race, Dirt Late Model style.

The ULTIMATE Southeast’s date at Lake View Motor Speedway on Thursday, September 3 will now be a throwback race in conjunction with the Southern 500 Cup race.  It will be an opportunity for Dirt Late Model racers to celebrate auto racing history in their own way in front of fans already in the area for the NASCAR weekend.

“We’re doing it in conjunction with the Darlington throwback weekend,” said Kelley Carlton, ULTIMATE Southeast Race Director.  “The NASCAR track being just down the road from Lake View.  It’s on a Thursday night, so we’re hoping we can pull in those folks who are pulling into Darlington for the NASCAR race.”

Racers will be encouraged to show up with throwback schemes, which could represent either NASCAR stars of days gone by or Dirt Late Model legends.

“We decided we would do a throwback deal, do the same thing they are doing.  We’re going to offer our competitors the opportunity to decide if they want to do a throwback to an old NASCAR scheme or an old Dirt Late Model scheme. We’re working on putting together a prize for Best Appearing or Fan Favorite car.  It may be a Best Appearing award decided by fan vote.”

Carlton is excited for the event to take place at Lake View, which joined the ULTIMATE schedule in 2019 as part of the venue’s rejuvenation under Scott Tripp.

Carlton is excited for the event to take place at Lake View, which joined the ULTIMATE schedule in 2019 as part of the venue’s rejuvenation under Scott Tripp.

“I think it’s going to be pretty neat.  Scott has always been a great guy to work with.  He’s excited about it.  They did some PR for the event all the way back at the last Darlington race.  Not so much the throwback aspect, but the announcement of the race was made back then.  We’re just growing some things, adding to it and trying to make it a really big event.  This will give drivers plenty of time to think about it, get with their wrap people and come up with some really good ideas.

“Scott and his whole staff were on fire for the program when we came this year.  When we talk about this, you can hear the excitement in his voice. We learned some stuff from going this year, track prep and such, and we really think we’ll have a jam-up event.”

BJ Robinson wins inaugural ULTIMATE Deep South race at Boothill Speedway

The ULTIMATE Deep South Super Late Model Series held its first ever event at Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, LA on Friday, November 29th with the Advanced Powder Coating Topless race. Fourth starting BJ Robinson of Bossier City, LA claimed the victory over a field of 20 super late models.

Polesitter Brandon Hightower led the 35-lap feature early but succumbed to engine failure early in the event. Jon Mitchell inherited the lead after Hightower retired, leading the next few circuits. Mitchell was held up in lapped traffic leaving the door open for Jason Rauen to throw a daring slider for the lead on lap 8. When Rauen made slight contact with a lapped car, Robinson was able to take the lead coming off of turn two. Robinson would never look back as he held off the field on an ensuing restart to claim the $3,000 victory. Morgan Bagley, Jon Mitchell, Patrik Daniel, and Jason Rauen rounded out the top five.

Feature Results

2020 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series schedule features 28 dates 
The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Southeast Region released the working schedule for the Series’ tenth anniversary season of competition in 2020 today. The slate includes 21 confirmed dates along with 7 dates that are to be announced in the next few weeks. As in recent years the series opens its season in early March at the 1/3rd mile North Georgia Speedway and the series will again close out the year at Sylvania, Georgia’s Screven Motor Speedway in November.

The ULTIMATE SE schedule is also once again highlighted with a pair of $20,000 to win events at Bill Sawyer’s immaculate Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia. The Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth is set for Saturday, May 30th while Ernie Shelton’s 44th Annual USA 100 is set for Saturday, August 1st at the Mid-Atlantic region half-mile oval. Both events will be one-day shows with 60 lap features.

Returning to the ULTIMATE venue line-up for the first time in over 8 years will be the historic Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina. A pair of $5000 to win features are slated for May 2nd and July 4th respectively. Also returning to the schedule will be 311 Motor Speedway in Pine Hall, North Carolina. All other venues in the current release of the schedule were on the 2019 schedule. More details about many of the events on the schedule will be forthcoming during the time leading up to them.

“We are waiting on all the final pieces to fall into place to announce all of our TBA events. With racing season lasting nearly year-round, it takes a little extra time to get some things firmed up for some of our promoters. We anticipate announcing dates at some new venues as well as some returns to some of our previous host facilities. But we wanted to get our schedule out as early as possible for teams to make plans and so we could make any tweaks that may become necessary.

FASTRAK boasts strong car counts in 2019

The FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance concluded the 2019 season at Screven Motor Speedway over the past weekend. The 2019 season saw the series’ average car count hold steady at 25 cars per event from the previous year. The FASTRAK Racing Series had 15 points paying events in 2019. Non-point events included the 2nd Annual Damn Yankees 50 at Richmond Raceway, the FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway, and the FASTRAK World Challenge at I-77 Speedway.

“It is great to see our average car counts holding steady,” said FASTRAK Vice President DJ Irvine, “We always want to see full fields at every event and strong fields as well. The racing on the tour this season was very competitive, seeing eight unique winners this season in points races. When you add the non-points events, that makes eleven different winners.”

While it was not factored into the average car count, FASTRAK saw a record turn-out for the $50,000 to win 2019 FASTRAK World Championship at Virginia Motor Speedway with 113 entries. The FASTRAK World Championship marked the highest late model car count of any event in several years. The record turn-out prompted Virginia Motor Speedway and FASTRAK to once again pay $50,000 to win the FASTRAK World Championship in 2020.

“We are certainly looking forward to the 2020 season,” continued Irvine, “We are returning to the Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the FASTRAK Triple Crown and East Coast Rumble are back along with the FASTRAK World Championship and will have some new events on the 2020 slate. Definitely looking to strengthen that average car count next year. A lot of exciting events are still in the
