FASTRAK AND ULTIMATE DIRT LATE MODEL SERIES ANNOUNCE "CO-OP" ADVERTISING PROGRAM

CARNESVILLE, GA - FASTRAK AND ULTIMATE dirt late model series announce the first ever "co -op" advertising program for dirt late racing in the history of the sport.

The management team of FASTRAK Companies International LLC is very excited to announce a new “Co - Op” advertising program for all venues holding either FASTRAK or ULTIMATE Touring events. “This is exciting” stated DJ Irvine General Manager. “No one to our knowledge has ever had anything like this in dirt racing and this is certain to bring additional fans to all our events. Our owner Stan Lester has been working on this new program for almost a year now and finally we are under contract with dirt late model magazine to make this happen. Honestly I just can’t wait to see the results and what it provides for our tracks, teams, fans and sponsors alike.”

“Although no one has ever done this in dirt racing, Stan is constantly thinking of how we can give more back to everyone involved and how to make our shows more profitable for the speedways hosting our events. Stan reminds us weekly, these are our customers and it’s our job to make them money. He just won’t have it any other way. He believes the teams and tracks are our customers and if we don’t take care of them, someone else will. Every Tuesday after an event we are required to call the speedway and make sure they made money. Not how much, but just that they did and they are happy. That’s true customer service and that’s what this company is all about.”

Dirt Late Model Magazine will have a 2 page spread in every issue in 2018 which will have $10,000 to win and up events ($5000 for FASTRAK) on the left hand side of the page and every touring event for either series on the right hand side of the page. Double page spread in the magazine will begin in the Speed Weeks issue and a thank you to all of our tracks, champions and sponsors. The schedules begin in the March issue.

With the addition of 2 more regions of ULTIMATE and additional events in the FASTRAK Series we know this will give all of our regions additional exposure and help each and every event grow into the future.

FASTRAK currently has crate late model (PRO) regions in the Southeast and Mid Ohio Valley.
 

ULTIMATE currently has super late model regions in the Southeast, Battle of the Bluegrass plus new regions in the Northeast and Mid Ohio Valley.

Please go to www.fastrakracing.com for our main page which will give you links to all of our series. Office- (678) 935-7304 each regional director has their own extension which will transfer you directly to their cell phone while traveling.

FASTRAK/ULTIMATE LIVE FORUM ON TUESDAY AT 8 P.M.

CARNESVILLE, GA – Get the latest news and information about everything FASTRAK and ULTIMATE this Tuesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern Time with the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Live Forum on Facebook Live with Host FASTRAK/ULTIMATE General Manager D.J. Irvine. There will be a lot to discuss with FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series and ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series races.

The FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series South East Region had an action packed Rebel Yell 40 on Saturday night at Screven Motorsports Complex in Sylvania, GA that had tightened up the most competitive championship battle in all of dirt late model racing. The point lead has changed hands six times among four different drivers in the first seven races of the season, and just 12 points separate the top five drivers.

That point battle will continue this coming Saturday night when the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series will compete in what is now the second jewel of the FASTRAK Triple Crown with a $3,000-to-win, $250-to-start race at Wythe Raceway in Rural Retreat, VA. This race was rescheduled from a May 28 rainout and will award points for both the South East and Mid-Ohio Valley Regions.

The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series will be singing “Georgia On My Mind” with a double-header this weekend featuring a pair of $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start races. The ULTIMATE South East Region stars will visit Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA on Friday night, and then it’s on to Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA.

One thing ULTIMATE SE fans, competitors and officials don’t want to hear is the “R” word, as Mother Nature has spread out enough liquid sunshine to postpone the last three ULTIMATE races. Both races this weekend are events that have been rescheduled from earlier in the season, and the drivers are anxious, as they haven’t raced ULTIMATE-style in over a month.

The latest point standings and race results for the FASTRAK Weekly Racing Series will also be revealed. Competitors at FASTRAK Weekly Racing Series tracks are competing for a Division point fund, and a National point fund that pays $10,000 to the National Champion.

FASTRAK drivers are also looking to make sure they get in their ten required races to participate in both nights of the richest weekend in all of Pro Late Model Racing at the World Championship Weekend at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, VA on September 15-16.

On September 15, it’s the $5,000-to-win World Challenge Race for FASTRAK Members with ten or more races in 2017. Then on September 16, it the $20,000-to-win 14th Annual World Championship Race that is open to all drivers with a FASTRAK-legal Pro Late Model powered by a Chevrolet Performance 604 or 602 Circle Track Engine.

ULTIMATE ANNOUNCES CO-OP ADVERTISING PLAN FOR 2018

CARNESVILLE, GA – ULTIMATE has done it again! Since its inception in 2011, ULTIMATE has always been an innovator in Super Dirt Late Model Racing with its economical Regional concept of racer friendly touring events. ULTIMATE has also been an innovator in race car and driver safety.

Once again, ULTIMATE is stepping it up with what might be the ONLY co-op advertising program in dirt racing today by a sanctioning body. This will be put in place for Touring events under both the four ULTIMATE Super Late Model Regional Series.

The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series will continue to grow in different areas of the country. ULTIMATE has a South East Region, a Battle of the Bluegrass Region, a Mid-Ohio Valley Region, and a North East Region.

With this growth, the overall goal is to help the events become more profitable for the tracks hosting them. ULTIMATE Founder and CEO Stan Lester and General Manager D.J. Irvine have a plan ready to go that can meet those goals.

“We realize most sanctioning bodies come into a track, put on a show, collect a sanctioning fee along with entry fees, and that’s the end of their responsibility,” Irvine said. “Stan does not feel that way at all, and if anything has ever proved that, I think this co-op advertising program certainly does.”

Lester has always been the first one to say to all in the motorsports community that we’re all in this together, and we have to work together to make this sport successful. Lester has always made it a point to give back to the sport.

“I take it personally,” Lester said. “It’s my job to make the tracks money, and that’s exactly what we want to do. I truly believe this program is going to work, and by all indicators, the tracks are really excited about this.”

There will be some guidelines that tracks will have to follow to participate, such as a minimum purse for the events at $5,000-to-win for the ULTIMATE Super Late Models. All tracks MUST have their event contracts into the ULTIMATE office no later than October 15, 2017 to meet the advertising deadlines.

Any track interested in participating and learning more about the co-op advertising program should contact D.J. Irvine at 678-935-7304 extension 104 or by E-Mail at dj@fastrakracing.com.

D.J. IRVINE IN THE HOUSE AS THE NEW FASTRAK/ULTIMATE GENERAL MANAGER

CARNESVILLE, GA – D.J. Irvine has taken over the day-to-day operations of FASTRAK Companies International and the six dirt late model racing series under its corporate umbrella from FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Founder and CEO Stan Lester. As the new General Manager, Irvine will host the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Live Forum on Facebook Live tomorrow night at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Irvine will be the new face of the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series South East and Mid-Ohio Valley Regions and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East, Battle of the Bluegrass, Mid-Ohio Valley and North East Regions. Irvine will take over for Lester, who will turn 59-years-old next month and is looking to slow down a little.

Lester will be taking on a new role with the company he founded in 2003 to focus more on the finance and marketing aspects, as the company continues to enjoy significant growth. The company stated out with the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series in 2003, and then added the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series in 2011. In the past two years, FASTRAK has added an additional Region, and ULTIMATE has grown to four different Regions.

“I really look forward to D.J. being here on a daily basis,” Lester said. “Trying to do it all for the last 14 years has been a real task. My role now is to focus my attention on finance and marketing. Any business owner that has ever grown realizes one thing you have to do in business is not out run your cash flow, and I am going to make sure that doesn’t happen to us and we can properly take care of our six series now.”

Lester knows that for any racing series to reach its full potential, an equal amount of time and effort must be paid to both the competition side and the business side. Irvine will handle the competition side of the company, and Lester will concentrate on the business side of the company.

“On the marketing side of things, I have a lot of contacts, many of which have nothing to do with racing, but we are a great tool for companies of many kinds that want to market to fans and teams like we have,” Lester said. “I want to be able to give more back to our teams and fans, and the task has already begun. It’s already working as quite a few things are in the works as we negotiate with new sponsors and we should be able to start announcing some things very soon.

Lester said today’s change in the management team at the top of the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE chain of command is the beginning of a bright future for everyone involved in both racing series, including the weekly tracks.

“I think everyone involved with FASTRAK and ULTIMATE will really like what we have coming for 2018,” Lester said. “We will be able to concentrate on marketing and make both our weekly tracks and touring shows more successful for all involved.”

Irvine comes to FASTRAK Companies International from Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, KY where he served as General Manager of that successful facility until it was taken over through Imminent Domain by the State of Kentucky to make way for a highway interchange.

D.J. Irvine’s contact information is by phone at the Office in Carnesville, GA 678-935-7304 extension 104, Cellphone at 270-564-1914, and by E-Mail at dj@fastrakracing.com.

The FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Facebook Live Forum this Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time will give everyone an opportunity to meet D.J. Irvine as the host of the program, welcome him into his new job, and ask him questions about how he sees the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Racing Series.

BLOOMQUIST WINS 4TH USA 100 AND FIRST ULTIMATE RACE AT VIRGINIA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

JAMAICA, VA – Despite dropping a cylinder on lap 23, Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN swept the 41st Annual USA 100 for the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series at Virginia Motor Speedway on Saturday night. Bloomquist was the Fast Qualifier, won his eight-lap Heat Race, and then led all 60 laps to claim the $20,000 top prize driving the Reece Monuments Bloomquist.

The win now lists Bloomquist as the only four-time winner of the USA 100, and he seemed really impressed that is was his first career win with the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series, after racing many times with the Regional series.

“I think we might have burned up a spark plug wire when we lost the cylinder, but the car was still fast, and those seven cylinders left gave all of the traction I needed,” Bloomquist said. “I didn’t realize I had never won a race with the ULTIMATE Series until tonight, so that’s something impressive.”

Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL and Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, GA battled side-by-side on the last lap of the race for the second spot, and they made contact on the backstretch. That put McDowell into the steel guardrail. Pearson finished second in the Dunn-Benson Ford/Lucas Oil Longhorn and apologized to MacDaddy after the race. McDowell was third in the TEXTRON Sweet/Bloomquist.

You can also call the Autolite/Fram/DirtOnDirt.com Rookie of the Year point leader Tyler Millwood of Cartersville, GA the new ULTIMATE SE Region point leader after a fourth-place finish, and Kenny Moreland of Waldorf, MD was the Hard Charger of the Race after starting 22nd and finishing fifth.

Russell Erwin of Beaver Dam, VA took the sixth spot and the 2011 ULTIMATE Champion Chris Ferguson of Mt. Holly, NC was seventh. Zack Dohm of Cross Lanes, WV finished eighth, Dale Hollidge of Mechanicsville, VA drove to a ninth-place finish, and Rick Elliott of Seaford, DE rounded out the top ten.

Bloomquist toured the Taj Mahal of American Dirt Tracks during M&W Transport “Haulin’ It” Qualifying in 16.671 seconds to earn an extra $400 for the Fast Time Award. Also winning eight-lap preliminary Heat Races were Pearson and McDowell.

Bloomquist took the lead at the drop of the green flag to start the race, but Ross Bailes of Clover, SC spun in turn four to bring out the first of four caution flags. That necessitated a complete restart, and Bloomquist again took the lead followed by Pearson, McDowell, Ferguson and Greg Satterlee of Rochester Hill, VA.

Ferguson passed McDowell for the third spot on lap two, while Bloomquist began to pull away from Pearson, but that was void when the caution flag came out on lap seven when Austin Hubbard of Seaford, DE stalled in turn four to light up the yellow caution bulb. Bloomquist led Pearson, Ferguson, McDowell, Satterlee, Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, GA, Bailes, Millwood, Justin Williams of Concord, VA, Hollidge for the double-file restart.

Satterlee got by McDowell for the fourth spot on the restart, as the field raced under green flag conditions for one lap before Jackie Boggs of Grayson, KY spun in turn four on lap eight to bring out the third caution flag. After the restart, McDowell reclaimed the fourth spot by passing Satterlee on lap ten.

Satterlee would race for six more laps before falling off the pace and parking his race car in the infield pit area. Davenport lost a driveshaft from under his Barry Wright house car on lap 18 to bring out the final caution flag of the race. When the field went back to green flag action, Bloomquist opened up a half straightaway lead on Pearson, who had raced his way back up to second.

Coming by the front straightaway grandstands on lap 23, the note of the engine under the hood of Bloomquist’s race car went off song, but not only was he able to maintain his lead over Pearson, he opened it up even more! Not even lapped traffic would slow Bloomquist down.

At the halfway point, Bloomquist led Pearson, McDowell, Millwood, Ferguson, Moreland, Erwin, Hollidge, Bailes and Dohm. In the last ten laps of the race, Bloomquist opened up a big lead over Pearson, who was beginning to feel the heat from McDowell. The second and third-place drivers battled side-by-side for the last to laps of the race, while Bloomquist took a 4.207 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.

The next two races for the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region will be on Friday night, June 16 at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA for a $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start race, and on Saturday night, June 17 at North Georgia Speedway in Chatsworth, GA for a $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start event.

Brandon Overton of Evans, GA took his first of two ULTIMATE victories this season at VMS on April 8 winning the $20,000 top prize in the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth.

Earl Pearson Jr. of Jacksonville, FL will be making the trip up the Eastern Seaboard this Saturday for the USA 100 in search of the $20,000 top prize. Pearson also has an ULTIMATE win this season.

McDowell took the lead from Ross Bailes of Clover, SC on lap 29, and then went on to win the $10,000 top prize.

Two-time 2017 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series winner Brandon Overton of Evans, GA took the second spot, and Bailes came home in third. Shanon Buckingham of Morristown, TN finished fourth, and fifth went to Fast Qualifier Vic “The Thrill” Hill of Mosheim, TN.

Hill set a new Volunteer Speedway Track Record in M&W Transport “Haulin’ It” Qualifying with a lap in 11.860 seconds. Jimmy Owens of Newport, TN was sixth and Ryan King of Seymour, TN started 15th and finished seventh. Ricky Weiss of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada had the longest tow and took the eighth spot.

The defending and two-time ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Champion Dennis Franklin of Gaffney, SC drove to a ninth-place finish. Dakotah Knuckles of Ewing, VA rounded out the top ten after starting 20th, and was the Hard Charger of the Race. In other preliminary action, the three eight-lap heat races were won by Bailes, Overton, and McDowell.

When the green flag came out to start the Freedom Isn’t Free 50 on Memorial Day evening, Overton took the lead from his outside front row starting spot followed by polesitter Bailes, and third-starting McDowell. On lap three, McDowell passed Bailes for the 2nd spot. The first of only two caution flags came out for Travis Greer of Marion, VA on lap 16.

During the caution period, G.R. Smith of Statesville, NC hit Hill, and Smith was sent to the pit area for the rest of the evening. Bailes got by McDowell to reclaim the second spot on the double-file restart, and on lap 18, moved up to challenge Overton for the lead. Bailes grabbed the point on lap 19, with Overton second, and McDowell in third.

McDowell was back up on the wheel by lap 20, and he moved back up to the second spot, passing Overton on lap 22. The final caution flag of the race came out on lap 28 for debris on the front straightaway. The restart saw Bailes jump the cushion on lap 29, and McDowell was able drive by to take the lead.

The last 20 laps of the race saw the veteran two-time Hav-A-Tampa Dirt Late Model Series National Champion work lapped traffic like playing a vintage violin and drive unchallenged to the checkered flag with a .777 margin of victory.

Smith of Statesville, NC is ninth with 101 points, and Michael Page of Douglasville, GA rounds out the top ten with 93 points.

Having the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series has a special meaning for the Freedom Isn’t Free 50 because the race, being on Memorial Day, honors those brave men and women throughout the history of our great nation that have made the ultimate sacrifice unselfishly and unafraid to keep us a free nation. The ULTIMATE competitors are more than happy to race in their honor to service.

The $10,000-to-win Freedom Isn’t Free 50 is a National Event for the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series. While it is a points race for the ULTIMATE South East Region, competitors in the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Region may use the points earned in this event to replace an event total in the ULTIMATE BoB standings of lesser value.

This National event is also on the schedule for ULTIMATE’s two newest regions, the ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley Region and the ULTIMATE North East Region. They are both on an Introductory Pilot Season with no points or point fund being awarded in 2017. Both Regions will have their first full seasons in 2018.

D.J. IRVINE PROMOTED TO FASTRAK/ULTIMATE GENERAL MANAGER

CARNESVILLE, GA – D.J. Irvine has been promoted to the FASTRAK Companies International, LLC General Manager effective immediately. FASTRAK Founder and CEO Stan Lester said Irvine will be relocating from Paducah, KY to Northeast Georgia to handle the day-to-day operations of the company that consists of six different dirt late model racing series.

Irvine was hired by Lester in February to become the Director of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Battle of the Bluegrass Region. Irvine became a good fit for Lester and FASTRAK, as Irvine desired a fulltime position in Motorsports, and Lester was looking for fulltime help in the office.

FASTRAK Companies International consists of the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series South East Region, the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series Mid-Ohio Valley Region, the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region, the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Battle of the Bluegrass Region, the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Mid-Ohio Valley Region, and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series North East Region.

“I am beyond excited to have accepted Stan Lester’s offer to become the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE General Manager and my Fiancée Lauren and I are looking forward to moving to Georgia next month,” Irvine said. “I am truly blessed to have a loving fiancée who stands behind me chasing my dreams.”

Irvine was introduced to Lester by FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Communications Director Roby Helm, who knew Irvine when he served as the General Manager and Promoter of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, KY before it was taken over by the State of Kentucky by Immanent Domain for an Interstate Highway interchange.

Just when his dream of working in racing fulltime looked like it was going to end as soon as it got going, opportunity knocked for Irvine with FASTRAK/ULTIMATE. The company was growing with two new ULTIMATE Regions coming online in 2017, and Lester knew he needed additional personnel to make it work.

“FASTRAK/ULTIMATE is growing at a rapid pace and there is more to come in the future months and years,” Lester said. “Roby Helm and I were discussing bringing on someone to direct the ULTIMATE BoB Series, and he suggested D.J. Irvine. I trust Roby’s judgment, and he got me and D.J. together. I had to agree with Roby that D.J. is a good fit for us, and after spending a lot of time with him, I’m confident he’s going to do a great job as General Manager.”

Lester said Irvine will take a lot of work off his plate, so he can do two things he really wants to do. Number one is to concentrate more on bringing more income into the company, and after being the front man for FASTRAK/ULTIMATE since its inception in 2004; Lester wants to slow down a little.

“It doesn’t seem possible, but I’ll be 60 years-old next summer and I’d like to start slowing down a little,” Lester said. “Having D.J. handling the day-to-day operation will free me up to do just that, plus I can give more attention to the financial part of the business and develop more marketing programs that will make this company grow.”

In addition to his duties in the FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Corporate Office, Irvine will also be a fixture at as many FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series and ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series events as he can. Lester said he will still be around, but Irvine will be the new front man for the company.

“I’m looking forward to working with Stan and everyone with the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Series and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series,” Irvine said. “We are going to work hard to bring more exciting things to the fans, drivers and tracks. I am very excited to see what the future holds.”

Irvine will remain the Director of the ULTIMATE BoB Region while he settles into his new GM role, and a new BoB Director can be hired. Irvine can be reached at the FASTRAK Corporate Office at 678-935-7304 ext. 101, by cellphone at 270-564-1914, by E-Mail at dj@fastrakracing.com, and by Skype at DJ Irvine.

QUESTIONS ARE THE KEY FOR FASTRAK/ULTIMATE FACEBOOK LIVE 8 P.M. TUESDAY

CARNESVILLE, GA – The FASTRAK/ULTIMATE Facebook Live Forum returns this Tuesday night at its new starting time of 8 p.m. Eastern time. The pace continues to be fast and furious with the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region, as they come off a Saturday night event and get ready for a $10,000-to-win National event this weekend.

Shane Clanton of Zebulon, GA took the ULTIMATE SE win on Saturday night at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, GA. It was supposed to be a Double Peach State Racing Weekend, but Sunday night’s race at Rome Speedway in Rome, GA was rained out. But not to worry, that race on the fast high-banked half-mile has been rescheduled with a bonus.

It will be another Georgia Double Racing Weekend on May 6 and May 7. Added to the 2017 ULTIMATE SE schedule is a 40-lap $4,000-to-win race at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, GA, followed by the rescheduled 40-lap $4,000-to-win Rome Rumble at Rome Speedway.

OVERTON WINS $20K IN VMS KING OF THE COMMONWEALTH FOR ULTIMATE SLMS

JAMAICA, VA – Brandon Overton of Evans, GA drove to his second straight ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region win on Saturday night and pocketed $20,000 in the Aaron’s King of Commonwealth at Virginia Motor Speedway. Overton battled with Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, GA early and often before taking the lead for good on lap 28 of the 60-lap race.

Dale McDowell of Rossville, GA was strong in the second half of the race, and finished second. The ride of the night belonged to Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN, who pitted under caution on lap three with what he thought was an engine problem. His crew found everything under the hood O.K., and sent their driver back out on the track to restart the race in the 24th and last spot.

Marlar was the fastest car on the track and he blazed a path through the field, but fell two spots short of victory and salvaged a third-place finish. Davenport led 20 laps of the race in a back and forth battle for the lead with Overton, and ended up fourth at the checkered flag.

Chris Madden of Gray Court, SC was fifth after topping the 34-car field in Qualifying with a lap around the ½-mile clay oval in 17.580 seconds. That earned Madden the $400 Fast Time Award from M&W Transport and Towing. Austin Hubbard finished sixth and Rick Eckert of York, PA took the seventh spot.

Matt Cosner came home in the eighth position, and ninth went to Chris Ferguson of Mt. Holly, NC. Dale Hollidge rounded out the top ten, and was the Keyser Manufacturing Hard Charger of the Race Award winner after starting 17th.

The win was the second straight ULTIMATE SE win for Overton, who also won the season opener on March 4 at North Georgia Speedway in Chatsworth, GA. In preliminary action on Saturday night, the four eight-lap Heat Races were won by Overton, Davenport, Madden and Marlar. The two ten-lap B-Main races were won by Hollidge and Nick Davis.

After starting on the outside of the front row, Davenport took the lead from polesitter Overton with a crossover move to the inside coming off the second turn on the first lap that saw Marlar, Madden and Hubbard in third through fifth respectively.

One crossover move is worth another, as Overton returned the favor on Davenport to take the lead on lap two, as McDowell got by Hubbard for the fifth spot. The caution flag was unfurled for the first time on lap three when 2016 ULTIMATE SE Rookie of the Year Glenn Elliott spun in turn four. Marlar gave up the third spot on the track to pit under caution.

The double-file restart saw Overton leading Davenport, Madden, McDowell, and Hubbard. When the green bulb was fired up, Hubbard was on the move, as he passed McDowell for fourth on the restart, and then got around Madden for third on lap four. The fifth lap saw Davenport pull alongside Overton to battle for the lead.

Overton pulled in front of Davenport on lap seven, and Madden worked his way back around Hubbard for the third spot. Davenport made an inside move on Overton coming off the fourth turn on lap nine to take the lead. Hubbard and Madden were still contesting the third spot, with Hubbard reclaiming the position on the 11th lap.

Davenport reached the cars on the tail end of the lead lap on lap 13, and McDowell got around Madden to take the fourth spot on lap 15. Overton chased down Davenport in lapped traffic, and began to challenge for the lead on lap 20. McDowell and Madden got by Hubbard to move up to third and fourth respectively on lap 20.

Davenport was able to keep Overton behind him in lapped traffic, but once they had clear race track in front of them, Overton dove to the inside going into turn three on lap 28 to take the lead from Davenport. McDowell then closed on Davenport and they raced side-by-side for second on lap 30. Elliott brought out the caution flag for a second time on lap 32 to bunch up the field for a restart.

The double-file restart saw Overton leading Davenport, McDowell, Madden, Hubbard, Jason Covert, Ferguson, Eckert, Tyler Millwood, and Ross Robinson in second through tenth respectively. McDowell passed Davenport for second on the restart, with Ferguson bolting into the fifth spot. Marlar came from out of nowhere to take over the sixth spot.

By lap 35, Overton had pulled out to a half straightaway lead over McDowell. Marlar moved into the top five again on lap 38 when he got around Ferguson. The final caution flag of the race came out on lap 44 for debris in turn four. Overton led McDowell, Davenport, Marlar, Madden, Ferguson and Hubbard double-file back to the green flag.

Marlar passed Davenport for the third spot on lap 45, and with ten laps to go, Overton had once again opened up a half straightaway lead over McDowell. Overton found himself in lapped traffic on lap 53.

Overton had increased his lead over McDowell to a full straightaway on lap 55. At the checkered flag, Overton was out of sight of McDowell and took the checkered flag with a 4.175 second margin of victory. The next race for the ULTIMATE SE Super Late Model Series will be the $5,022-to-win Jack Starrette Memorial Race at Modoc Speedway in Modoc, SC on April 15.

ENGLISH SWEEPS BROWNSTOWN 2017 ULTIMATE BoB SEASON OPENER

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Second generation driver Tanner English of Benton, KY drove the Seay Motors Rocket to a clean sweep on Saturday night in the 2017 season opener for the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series at Brownstown Speedway. English was undefeated for the night.

English was the fast qualifier with a lap around Brownstown Speedway in 13.098 seconds, he won his ten-lap heat race to earn the outside front row starting spot, and then led all 30 laps of the main event. He did it all Saturday night, as he even carried the American Flag for the National Anthem to start the evening’s festivities.

Despite eight caution flags, English was able to open up as much as a full straightaway lead on the second-place car, and his margin of victory was 1.703 seconds. While English was in command at the point, positions second on back were hotly contested throughout the 30-lap race.

Jered Bailey of Bedford, IN finished second in the Bailey Racing Special after a race long battle for the second spot with the defending ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Champion Jeremy Hines of Seymour, IN. Jason Jameson of Lawrenceburg, IN took the third spot in the M.G.L. Auto Sales Club 29.

Adam Bowman of Seymour, IN was the Hard Charger of the Race after starting 13th and finishing fourth in the Bowman Motorsports Black Diamond. The fifth spot went to Chad Stapleton of Edinburgh, IN in the Sub Surface of Indiana Special, and Hines slipped off the race track with five laps to go and fell back to finish sixth in the Jason Ayers Trucking Longhorn.

Britan Godsey of Mitchell, IN took the seventh spot in the Kevin Walls TNT, and Matt Bex of Avoca, IN was eighth in the All-Star Performance Rocket. John Whitney of Clarksville, OH drove the Carthage Auto Revolution to a ninth-place finish, and John Baker Jr. of French Lick, IN rounded out the top ten in the Baker’s Hillham Garage Rocket.

Hines won the first ten-lap Heat Race to earn the pole position and he led the field down for the start. The first of eight caution flags came out on the first lap when Bowman and Alan Magner of North Vernon, IN in the Borgman Farms Barry Wright tangled in turn two. That created a complete restart.

On the next try, English from the outside front row starting hole took the lead from Hines coming off the second turn. Hines, Bailey, Stapleton and Jameson followed in second through fifth respectively. The second caution came out on lap two when Jeff Wilson of Butlerville, IN stalled the Jim Beeman Lumber Mastersbilt on the backstretch.

With the Delaware Double-File Restart, English, out front in the row all by himself took off from the point, but the battle for second was on, as Bailey worked inside Hines to take the second spot. Once Hines built up his momentum on the high side of Brownstown Speedway, he sailed around the outside of Bailey on lap five to retake the second position.

The yellow caution bulb was lit on lap seven when Stapleton stalled on the backstretch. English had Hines, Bailey, Jameson, Devin Gilpin of Columbus, IN in the Dasco Race Supply Sweet/Bloomquist, Bex, Magner, Levi Ashby of Cumberland Furnace, TN in The Wheel Shop Rocket, and Austyn Mills of Cincinnati, OH in the Carthage Auto Parts Swartz doubled up four rows deep behind him for the restart.

The racing was fast and furious behind the leader, who if you were just watching him, you missed some great racing behind English. The caution came out on lap eight when Bex sailed off the second turn, but there were wholesale position changes for the next restart. English was the leader followed by Hines, Bailey, Jameson, Gilpin, Magner, Mills, Bowman, Whitney and Ashby.

On the restart, Bailey dove underneath Hines to take the second spot, but once again, Hines was up to the challenge, as the champ sailed around the outside of Bailey on lap 11 to regain the second position. Whitney spun in turn four on lap 12 to make the yellow cloth wave over the field.

Hines changed strategy for this restart and he chose the inside in an effort to keep Bailey from diving underneath him. Bailey liked the outside too, as he passed Hines on the high side when the field went back to green. Hines then showed Bailey he was good on the bottom as well, and he drove under Bailey for second on lap 13.

English missed all of the good racing action because it was a full straightaway behind him at the halfway point of the race. Lap 15 also saw Bailey pass Hines on the outside for second. A lap 19 caution flag for debris set up a wild restart that saw Hines sail around the outside of Bailey for second, and after restarting in the fifth spot, Mills went to the inside of Bailey to make it a three-wide battle for second.

Mills drove under Bailey down the backstretch to take over the third spot. Bailey regrouped and got back by Mills for the third spot on lap 24. On lap 25, Hines slipped off the track and lost several spots, and Mills broke something and spun on lap 26 to bring out the final caution flag. The field lined up single-file for the five lap dash to the finish.

English led Bailey, Jameson, Bowman, Stapleton, Hines, Godsey, Whitney, Baker and Bex down for the restart. English once again showed the same strength he had displayed all night and pulled away unchallenged to a half straightaway lead to the checkered flag.

The next race for the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series competitors is an optional National points race at Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, VA on April 8. The 60-lap $20,000-to-win, $575-to-start Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth is the richest single-day event in Regional Super Late Model racing.

In the Virginia Motor Speedway National event, ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass drivers can use the points earned in this race to replace an ULTIMATE BoB Regional event total of lesser value in the season point totals.

READY TO GO BOBIN’ AT BROWNSTOWN TO OPEN 2017 SEASON FOR ULTIMATE BoB

CARNESVILLE, GA – The ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series is set to open its second season on April 1 at Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN. The top two drivers in the 2016 ULTIMATE BoB Tour are looking forward to starting the 2017 season at their home track.

Jeremy Hines of Seymour, IN is the defending champion of the ULTIMATE BoB Series and he captured the title in his first season of hitting the road with a traveling series. Hines will begin his sophomore season with a book full of notes and lessons learned going to different tracks on the tour. For Hines, the highlight of the 2016 season was clinching the title at Brownstown Speedway.

“It felt great to clinch the championship here at my home track where my dad and my family have raced for years,” Hines said. “It was a lot of fun to run the Ultimate BoB Series, as we traveled to five different states and I got to run at a lot of tracks I’ve never been to before. My plan is to defend my title in 2017.”

A familiar face battled with Hines for the 2016 ULTIMATE BoB Championship, but Derek Fisher of Seymour, IN had to settle for second in the point standings. Fisher, however, won a title of his own, as he earned the 2016 ULTIMATE BoB Rookie of the Year Award. Like Hines, Fisher learned his racing skills at Brownstown Speedway.

In addition to Hines and Fisher, look for the series’ Brownstown Speedway track record holder Cody Mahoney of Hanover, IN, who toured the fast clay oval in 12.728 seconds on October 1, 2016. Also expected for the ULTIMATE BoB season opener are Alan Magner of North Vernon, IN, Joe Godsey of Edinburgh, IN, Jared Bailey of Bedford, IN, and Chad Stapleton of Edinburgh, IN.

The ULTIMATE BoB Tour will also have a new Director for the 2017 season, as D.J. Irvine is ready for his first race with the series at Brownstown Speedway on April 1. Irvine comes to the ULTIMATE BoB Series from Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, KY where he served as the Track Manager and Promoter.

“I'm ready to get the season underway,” Irvine said. “I've built a great team that's ready to continue the Ultimate style of racing in the Bluegrass Region. Getting a late start on the building the schedule has been difficult, but I'm working hard to finalize some dates with various tracks. I’m looking forward to having an excellent second season for the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Late Model Series. Looking to Brownstown, it's a great facility to open our season. I hope the drivers and fans are as excited as we are to get 2017 rolling.”

TWO SANCTIONING BODIES DO THE UNUSUAL - FORM AN ALLIANCE

(Carnesville, Georgia) 3/2/17 – In what seems to be most unusual in today’s world of Motorsports, two sanctioning bodies have agreed to support and help each other. Fastrak/Ultimate Racing Founder and CEO Stan Lester, and American Motor Racing Association’s Angie Haught have announced an Alliance for 2017 between the two sanctioning bodies.

The Fastrak Pro Late Model Weekly Racing Series sanctions crate late model racing at several tracks in West Virginia and Southern Ohio, and AMRA sanctions super late model racing at the same tracks. With Lester announcing the formation of the touring Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model series, the two sanctioning bodies have discussed ways to help each other.

“We will be working with AMRA in training their tech staff for the economical Chevrolet Performance 604 and 602 Circle Track Engines that are built and sealed at the factory to prevent any expensive modifications,” Lester said. “That will service our weekly sanctioned tracks and race teams in the area much better and more efficiently.”

Going on its 14th season, Fastrak has been the leader in affordable dirt late model racing as the first dirt late model series to use the 400 horsepower aluminum-head, steel-block 604 and the 350 horsepower steel-head, steel-block 602 Chevrolet Performance Circle Track Engines, which are durable, very low maintenance, racing engines that can be bought for a fraction of the cost of an aftermarket all-aluminum super late model engine.

“As we have for 14 years, we will continue to work towards making dirt late model racing affordable for everyone,” Lester said. “Proper and regular technical inspections are the key to keeping this type of racing affordable for competitors, and that is also passed on the track operators, and then to the race fans.”

According to AMRA officials, this alliance with the Fastrak Pro Late Model Weekly Racing Series and the Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Tour is something they have been searching for.

“For years, we have been trying to reach out to tracks and other sanctioning bodies in an effort to make us all stronger in the industry,” Haught said. “We’re excited that AMRA/Fastrak/Ultimate has found each other because we share the same goals. This is a great thing for everyone involved and we’re looking forward to growing this alliance in the years to come.”

The Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV Tour will give the AMRA weekly racers an opportunity to compete in a series of higher paying special events with a separate point fund. According to Lester, Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV is making an effort to make it easy for AMRA drivers to compete in the Touring events, and to also earn their ARMA Weekly Points at the same time.

“Ultimate will handle the touring duties of the super late models, and AMRA weekly teams will receive AMRA weekly points for those events,” Lester said. “Ultimate will also be collecting Temporary Memberships of $25 per race, or a one-time fee of $75 Ultimate Membership Fee for AMRA drivers.”

Lester said Ultimate is also making concessions in the rules for AMRA drivers, with an emphasis on tire rules, which traditionally is a major stumbling block for different series to work together. This is a barrier Lester says he is more than happy to plow through.

“I have heard tracks and teams say forever they wish we could figure out how to work together as sanctioning bodies,” Lester said. “AMRA/Fastrak/Ultimate are now doing it, so it is possible. The Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV Tour will utilize the AMRA tire rule because it makes sense, and no one has to change a thing. We aren’t coming in and telling people, ‘well that’s not our tires, so go buy another type.’ Let’s use what’s already in place and let’s go race!”

The Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV Tour will schedule ten to 12 races for 2017, with the minimum purse to be $3,000-to-win and $400-to-start. The first Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV event is scheduled for Friday night, April 7 at Beckley Motorsports Park in Beckley, WV for a $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start race.

This will be a tri-sanctioned race with the two of the Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV sister series. Points will also be awarded at the April 7 Beckley Motorsports Park race for the Ultimate Southeast Super Late Model Series and the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series.

Robbie Cyrus is the Director of the Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV Tour and he is currently putting the 2017 schedule of events together. Tracks interested in booking a Dave Poske’s Performance Parts Ultimate MOV race can contact Cyrus at 304-575-3792 or E-Mail him at robbie@fastrakracing.com.

The 2017 Ultimate SLMS Schedule has been posted at www.fastrakracing.com, and will begin on March 4 at North Georgia Speedway in Chatsworth, GA.

D.J. Irvine named Ultimate BOB Super Late Model Series Director

(Carnesville, Georgia) 2/13/17 – D.J. Irvine has been named the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series Regional Director by Fastrak Companies International Founder and CEO Stan Lester. Irvine is a well-known race official in Western Kentucky, which fits right in with the part of the country the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series operates in.

In 2016, the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series was spun off the Southeastern Ultimate Super Late Model Series. While the Ultimate series continues to operate in the Southeast, the Ultimate BoB Series gave super late model racing a new region, operating in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
Irvine takes over the reins of the Ultimate BoB Series after serving in various positions at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Calvert City, KY, and at Paducah International Raceway in his native Paducah, KY. Irvine began at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in 2014 as a communications intern while attending Murray State University.

Irvine was promoted to the position of General Manager/Promoter of Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway toward the end of the 2014 season, and he then graduated from Murray State with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations.

Irvine served in that position during the 2015 season until the track was shut down late in the season by the state government that exercised eminent domain for highway expansion. Irvine then moved to Paducah International Raceway where he served as the Race Director for the 2016 season.


Irvine is the second major hire by Lester in the last four months. Lester hired veteran motorsports official Roby Helm as the Fastrak President of Communications and Special Consultant in December of 2016. Lester said it was Helm that suggested Irvine for the position of Ultimate BoB Regional Director.


“Fastrak is growing at a rapid pace and there is more to come in the coming weeks,” Lester said. “Roby Helm and I were discussing bringing on someone to direct the Ultimate BoB Series, and he suggested D.J. Irvine. I trust Roby’s judgment, and he got me and D.J. together. I had to agree with Roby that D.J. is a good fit for us, and I’m confident he’s going to do a great job.”

Helm has had past experience working with Irvine while he was at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway, and Helm was impressed with how Irvine conducted himself before, during, and after the races.

“For such a young man, I was really impressed with D.J. Irvine when I had the chance to work with him when the series I was working with at the time had an event at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway,” Helm said. “Irvine had outstanding professionalism, and he showed me a rare talent nowadays in that he could multi-task.
“D.J. can promote and manage an event,” Helm said. “He can race direct the event, he can write the press releases, and if need be, he can pick up a microphone and announce the event. I’m proud to have him as a part of the Fastrak/Ultimate Team and I look forward to working with him in the years to come.”

Irvine is looking forward to this new challenge in his young career, and is thankful for Helm suggesting him to Lester for the position. Irvine is ready to jump right in and help finish the 2017 Ultimate BoB Series Schedule and then hit the ground running getting to know the series’ competitors.

“I'm excited to be named to the position and look forward to building the BoB Series into a premier regional series for Late Model drivers,” Irvine said. “Grassroots racing has a special place in my heart, since my grandfather raced on dirt. I'm ready to do my part to continue the sport's growth, especially in this region.” Irvine can be reached at 270-564-1914, by E-Mail at dirvine31@comcast.net, on Facebook at Dj Irvine, or on Skype at dirvine31.

Fastrak / Ultimate Awards Banquet takes on family theme

(Gatlinburg, Tennessee) 1/21/17 - At most racing awards banquets, champions and others come to the stage, accept their point fund checks, trophies and special awards. The night tends to be all about accomplishment. The Fastrak/Ultimate Annual Awards Banquet on Saturday night at the Park Vista Hotel had that and more. The theme of the evening quickly became of family.

Nothing drove that home more than the very end of the banquet. Fastrak/Ultimate Founder and CEO Stan Lester asked everyone in attendance to stand up as one big family and form a prayer circle around the Grand Ballroom, join hands, and to go to the Lord in prayer for someone that was not even a competitor, sponsor, or official. This gave the banquet a unique exclamation point!

Leading up to that point, Lester drove home the point that everyone in the room, that included competitors, sponsors, track operators, and officials, were all members of the Fastrak/Ultimate family, and win or lose on the race track, that the family atmosphere of the Fastrak/Ultimate series’ is what is the most important. It also set the table for the 2017 season.

“A lot of people might think that the fact we’ve handed out over $208,000 in point fund money and awards tonight is the most important thing, but to me, it’s not, and I know to a lot of you in this room tonight it’s not,” Lester said. “To me, the most important thing is the family atmosphere in this room. During the course of the season, we have our disagreements, but I will never hide from you. If you have a problem, I’m at every race, I’m available to talk to you any time, I do answer my telephone and return messages, we talk, we work things out, and then we move on. That’s what families do!”

Among those collecting the lion’s share of the $208,000 handed out on the stage of the Grand Ballroom were the Fastrak Pro Late Model Series South East and Mid-Ohio Valley Touring Champion Cla Knight, the Fastrak Pro Late Model Series Weekly Racing Series National Champion David McCoy, the Ultimate Super Late Model Series Champion Dennis “Rambo” Franklin, and the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series Champion Jeremy Hines.

Rookies of the Year honors went to Chris Steele in the Fastrak SE Series, Glenn Elliott in the Ultimate Super Late Model Series, and Derek Fisher in the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series.

The highlight of the Fastrak Hall of Fame Induction was the entrance of longtime Fastrak competitor David Smith into the Hall. Also in the Class of 2016 were TNT Race Cars, Rocket Chassis, and Hoosier Racing Tires. Chris Steele was presented with the Chuck Field Sportsman of the Year Award. The 2016 Fastrak/Ultimate Track of the Year went to Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, IN.

Youth was also served at the Fastrak/Ultimate Awards Banquet, and a pair of drivers under the age of 20 were honored as Fastrak Future Cup recipients. Henry Hornsby III was the Future Cup Champion in the South East Region, and Tyler Stutler was the Future Cup Champion in the Mid-Ohio Valley Region.

The Champions of the six Fastrak Weekly Racing Series also came to the stage to be honored and receive their point fund checks and trophies. The top ten drivers in attendance at the Awards Banquet in all Touring Series, and Weekly Racing Series Divisions were recognized and received awards.

McCoy won the Division 1 title representing Lavonia Speedway and Toccoa Raceway in Georgia. Matthew Nance is the Division 2 Champion representing Antioch Speedway and Rolling Thunder Raceway.

Tyler Arrington is the Fastrak Weekly Racing Series Division 3 Champion representing Princeton Speedway, Lizard Creek Speedway and Wythe Raceway. Justin Williams is the Division 5 Champion representing Virginia Motor Speedway.

Troy Frazier is the Fastrak Weekly Racing Series Division 6 Champion presenting Tyler County Speedway, Elkins Raceway and Rolling Knob Motorsports Complex, and Jake Henry is the Division 7 Champion representing Ponderosa Speedway.

Late Model in the ballroom for the biggest Fastrak / Ultimate banquet ever

(Carnesville, Georgia) 1/13/17 - A full day of activities for the Fastrak/Ultimate Annual Awards Banquet at the Park Vista Hotel in Gatlinburg, TN will start early in the morning on January 21. The first order of business right after breakfast will be the parade of Championship Dirt Late Models being rolled into the Grand Ballroom of the Banquet.

Each Fastrak/Ultimate Champion to be honored on January 21 has the opportunity to display their race cars in the Grand Ballroom of the Banquet. They will be carefully placed into position because the feast to honor the 2016 Champions is bigger than ever. Fastrak/Ultimate officials said today that the ticket sales have increased 40 percent for this year’s event.

Fastrak Facebook Live Forum to air 7 PM Tuesday on the Fastrak Facebook Page

(Carnesville, Georgia) 1/2/17 – The popular Fastrak Facebook Live Forum with Fastrak Founder and CEO Stan Lester will return to the cyber air waves this Tuesday night at 7 p.m. Eastern Time on the Fastrak Facebook page. The main topic of conversation this Tuesday night will be tires, and specifically, the Fastrak FT200/400 Hoosier Racing Tire.

Stan will answer any and all questions about the Fastrak FT200/400 Hoosier Racing Tire, as well as any and all questions about the Fastrak Pro Late Model Series Southeast Region, the Fastrak Mid-Ohio Valley Region, the Fastrak Weekly Racing Series, the Ultimate Super Late Model Series, and the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series.

Those competitors that have never raced with Fastrak may want to tune in to the Fastrak Facebook Live Forum this Tuesday at 7 p.m. Eastern Time because you may learn about some savings you will have running with Fastrak that you will not get running with any other series.

First of all, you can compete without having to purchase a membership, Annual or Temporary, if you are not running for series points. Secondly, there is also a lot to be saved on your tire bill for non-members running with Fastrak.

While the FT 200/400 Hoosier Racing Tires are required for use in all Fastrak sanctioned events, it may not be that well known outside of Fastrak that the tire is only required for the rear of the race car for competitors not running for points. Competitors that are not running for points can run any tire they wish on the front of the race car.

“As far as I know, Fastrak is the only Crate Late Model Series in the country that lets the competitors not running for points use any tires they want on the front of the race car,” Lester said. “Most series that I know of make their competitors, both members and non-members, run their spec tire on all four corners of the race car. Fastrak is all about doing what we can to save the racers money, and I’ve tried to get the other series to agree on one tire for everyone, but got no response. With so many different tires out there, both for series and weekly tracks both sanctioned and unsanctioned, we only make the racers not running for points spend half the money for tires to compete with us.”

Lester went on to say that racers he has spoken with like the FT 200/400 Hoosier Racing Tire, especially with the long standing rule of no grooving and siping the tire. The competitors have said the tire repeats well and can be used for multiple events, saving them money on their respective tire bills each season.

In addition to Facebook, the Fastrak Live Forum can also be seen on Skype at fastrak.corpoarate.officies. It is an audience participation program, and your questions are the stars of the show, so let Stan have them early and often. As long as you fire us question, we will be broadcasting the answers!
