ULTIMATE BATTLE OF THE BLUEGRASS REBRANDED AS ULTIMATE HEART OF AMERICA

CARNESVILLE, GA - FASTRAK Companies International, LLC has announced a change to the name of one of its ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series regions. The ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series is being rebranded as the ULTIMATE Heart of America Super Late Model Series. The change comes from a shift in the area the region will cover in 2019 and beyond. The ULTIMATE Heart of America Super Late Model Series plans to host races in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee.

“The change comes as the ULTIMATE brand continues to grow,” said General Manager DJ Irvine, “It makes sense to shift this region westward. This region has a lot of strong super late model teams and great racing facilities. We can’t wait to bring the ULTIMATE brand of racing to some new places in 2019.”

The rebranding will also bring the logo and branding marks for the region in line with the other regions of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series.

“Branding is huge in today’s marketing arena,” continued Irvine, “The new logo is consistent with the ULTIMATE brand as we continue building the premier regional touring series around the country. When this region first opened, it was just one of two regions, now with five regions in 2019, the time has come for brand consistency.”

The ULTIMATE Heart of America Super Late Model Series will sanction the 32nd Annual Paul “Butterball” Wooldridge Memorial at Richmond Raceway paying $10,059 to win on August 17, 2019. The Series will also be at Richmond Raceway for the Butch Shay Memorial on July 19th and 20th paying $3,000 to win on Friday and $5,000 to win on Saturday. The Butch Shay Memorial will also kick off the 2019 Buckeye Late Model Dirt Weeks which is also part of the ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Series. Matt Hicks, of Langley, KY, remains as the regional director for the ULTIMATE Heart of America Super Late Model Series.

“These races are just the tip of the iceberg,” said Hicks, “We’ve got big plans for 2019 and we are going to work hard to grow into the new areas.”

The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series has grown into five regions, now covering 17 states with the Deep South region opening in 2019. The ULTIMATE Northeast and ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley completed their first season of competition in 2018, each boasting an average car count of over 24 cars.

“There are some great events in the works as ULTIMATE continues to grow,” continued Irvine, “we are seeing strong car counts at ULTIMATE races and that has us tossing around some exciting ideas. I am confident that 2019 is going to be a great year for all of FASTRAK Companies International.”

More dates and information will be released as they become available. The website and Facebook pages will be updated over the coming days. Questions will be answered on next Tuesday’s ULTIMATE Facebook Live Forum at 7pm Eastern.

MOTHER NATURE STRIKES AGAIN; CROSSVILLE ULTIMATE EVENT POSTPONED

CROSSVILLE, TN - Officials of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series and Crossville Speedway have made the difficult decision to postpone Friday's $4000 to win Thunder on the Plateau event. Local forecasts are calling for up to 90% chance of rain Thursday night and most of the day on Friday. "This is a real shame. We really wanted to have this show. But we have been hit hard by weather all year long. We are going to try and find a good date to reschedule it." said Crossville Promoter Lewis Jackson.

"Mother Nature just won’t give us a break. We have had so many rainouts and we hate to have another. But with that high of a percentage of rain we have to be realistic and look out for our teams and fans by making an early decision. It stinks all the way around because we had a lot of really good cars coming and Crossville is an awesome racetrack. But we are going to try and find a date that will work for everyone to make it up." said ULTIMATE Series Director Kelley Carlton.

For Portsmouth Raceway Park and the Finale, this will be the first visit to the speedway for the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week presented by the ULTIMATE MOV & BOB Series. Portsmouth plays host to the Dirt Track World Championship in October paying $100,000 to the winner. We will crown the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Champion Saturday night and guarantee the winner a spot in the DTWC worth $2,000 to start. Again, if any of the top finishers in points make the DTWC on their own or takes the Jim Dunn Memorial provisional on October 6th, then it goes down the standings to the next qualified driver not in the show.

Every driver on this tour is trying to position themselves for a provisional spot in either the Jim Dunn Memorial at Midway Speedway on October 6th or the Dirt Track World Championship at Portsmouth Raceway Park on October 18th thru the 20th. All regional drivers want to make either of these shows on their own but a guaranteed provisional spot would give them some easy minds going into October.

So for every fan that loves Super Late Model racing and the drivers of the MOV and BOB ULTIMATE Regions we look forward to seeing you at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex Friday August 3rd and Portsmouth Raceway Park on Saturday August 4th for the Finale. We thank all that has supported the ULTIMATE Series so far this season as we grow into your new Regional Series for the MOV and BOB covering OH, WV, KY, and IN.

We want to thank all the marketing sponsors for this event and will continue to add as we get more companies and businesses to join the Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week Sponsor Family. Again, for dirt racing to continue to be great, you need all four component to keep it going: Sponsors, Tracks, Fans and Race Teams.

CONLEY SWEEPS NIGHT #2 OF 4TH ANNUAL BUCKEYE LATE MODEL DIRT WEEK AT MOLER

FASTRAK Companies International / Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week – By Wesley Outland

WILLIAMSBURG, OH - The second round of the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week co-sanctioned by ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley/Battle of the Bluegrass was at the Moler Raceway Park Racing, the intense fast ¼ mile in Williamsburg, Ohio for a $3000 to win $400 to start feature on a full moon Friday Summer evening in front of a capacity crowd on hand. 24 competitors signed in to continue the quest for the $3000 prize, #10 Eddie Carrier Jr. continued his momentum from winning the opener the previous night at Atomic Speedway turning the track in 13.046 seconds in VP Race Fuels QUICKTIME single car time trials. Heat races we’re three in total and Heat 1 went to #23 Cody Mahoney and Heat 2 to #71 Rod Conley finally Heat 3 to #7 Mike Maresca. #71c RJ Conley would take $102.50 in the Moler Money Fans Dash and from there the field would watch him go flag to flag from the pole position to win Night #2 at Moler Raceway Park.

The race would consist of spectacular racing through the entire field but up front #71c RJ Conley was simply in another zip code. Even after caution and restarts for single car spins and then the major multi car incident involving #32 Chad Stapleton, #91 Blake Naylor and #44 Mark Frazier, followed by the wild rim riding in the late going up the outside retaining wall for #1c Chad Oberson, nothing would keep Conley from capturing the checkered flag for the $3000 show over a hard charging #6t Tim Dohm who simply admitted ill handling car conditions and hung up on lap traffic force his runner up finish. Steve Casebolt in the #c9 would recover from bad luck the previous night and during hot laps to prevail rally and take the top three podium finish while #12 Josh Rice and #23 Cody Mahoney rounded out the Top Five finishers.

CARRIER JR SURVIVES LATE RALLY TO CAPTURE BUCKEYE LATE MODEL DIRT WEEK OPENER AT ATOMIC SPEEDWAY

FASTRAK Companies International / Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week – By Wesley Outland

CHILLICOTHE, OH – The atmosphere was ecstatic and electric in Waverly, Ohio for the mid-week kick off Thursday night show that was the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week sanctioned by the ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley and Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series co-sanctioning the first race at Atomic Speedway. 32 Super Late Models rang the bell for the opening race for $3000 to win and $400 to start. When the dust settled after a full moon Thursday gala it was the #10 Eddie Carrier Jr. to survive a late charge by #71 Rod Conley and #42 Chris Garnes after the bad misfortunes for #11 Jared Hawkins to officially get the Ohio speed week into high gear.

The evening would get underway before sunset in front of a stellar crowd, #6T Tim Dohm (2014 FASTRAK World Champion) set the bar into action turning a 13.397 second lap around the 3/8th mile for VP Racing Fuels QUICKTIME Qualifying. Bad luck would hit the young lady in the #27 Kryptonite chassis of Lauren Longbrake from Columbus, OH after the brace on the right front broke causing her car to hit the yuke tire and the retaining wall in turn three, red flag would halt qualifying for ten minutes.

The field would be set with three 10 lap heat races won by #71 RJ Conley, #10 Eddie Carrier Jr. and #28 Tyler Carpenter. The top 6 fast qualifiers competed in a 8 lap MONEY Dash as $122.50 went to the driver of #11 Jared Hawkins and a racing fan in the crowd that had the winning ticket in the unique interaction for the fans to be part of the show. With the top 6 locked into the A-Main from qualifying and 12 drivers transferred from the heat races. #12 Doug Drown from Wooster, OH would suffer bad luck exiting turn three losing the left rear tire and parts flying off his car ending his evening. The remaining field would be stacked in a 12 lap last chance showdown taking the top 4 finishers. In this race we saw the return of young Lauren Longbrake that crashed out during qualifying, missed her heat race and then rallied in the B-main to just miss making the 40 lap feature by one spot. Drivers with Provisionals to be locked in suffered severe damage unable to answer the call including Drown and 3rd Heat winner Tyler Carpenter suffered engine failures ending his opportunity 9th for the feature. That allowed #511 Chris Lockhart and Longbrake to transfer into the show.

The race would get underway after the spectacular 4 wide salute with fireworks hyping the crowd ready for the green flag to unfurl, Hawkins would get the early jump on the field but Tim Dohm and the Conley’s in their Rocket chassis we’re hot on their tails in the early going. The first caution would fly when #24 James Morey spun off turn two. On the restart Hawkins would take off but go back to yellow again on lap 7 when contact happened on the restart as the #c9 Steve Casebolt from Richmond, IN stalling entering the top of turn 2. The yellow would fly again after the #71’s of Rod Conley and RJ Conley door slammed each other collecting also #32 Chad Stapleton. On the restart a sequence of more yellows would halt the action a total of 7 times during the duration of the event.

All the while Jared Hawkins would continue to sail away from the field opening up an interval of almost 5 seconds at one time and quickly maneuvering around lap traffic. The climax moment of the race was the 6th caution when #71 RJ Conley would tangle hard into the turn three wall with #6 Travis Carr, the end result was Conley protesting his position which forced series and track officials to put him on the tow truck sending him to the pit area ending his night.

With Hawkins still out in front Conley, Dohm and a fantastic performance by #42 Chris Garnes from Ripley, WV starting 17th in the feature to come strong to the front producing a charge to try and spoil the upset with furious racing at times four-five wide at different times around the high banked 24 degree racing surface. Also, great drives through the field was made by #12 Ryan Montgomery and #44 Mark Frazier defending Atomic Speedway super late model champion performed great drives as well. Lap 31 with 9 laps to go Hawkins would blow a right rear tire after hitting something forcing his great night to end in disappointment giving the lead to Carrier Jr. The race would commence with the final charge by Conley and Garnes making every effort to run down “The Salt Rock Express” from West Virginia. Garnes during the last sprint to the finish would drive up the cushion way on the top side to try to pull a shocking finish and was up to Conley at the checkered flag. Eddie Carrier Jr. would even run down the back marker cars again to hold off the pack as Carrier would take opening night of the 4th Annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week at Atomic Speedway with the crowd applauding him with a standing ovation and roaring crescendo.

JARED HAWKINS SCORES BUTCH SHAY MEMORIAL $5,000 WIN

RICHMOND, KY - The 4th annual Butch Shay Memorial for the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series was on Saturday, July 7th. Richmond Raceway located southeast of Lexington in Richmond, KY served as hosts of the UBOB cars and stars for the second all-time appearance in series history. The night before, the Prelude to the Butch Shay Memorial was rained out, so everyone was on an even playing field leading into the $5,000 to win showdown. When all was said and done, Jared Hawkins emerged victorious after race-long leader, Tommy Bailey jumped the cushion, breaking a tie rod and taking down the turn four guardrail, handing the lead to Hawkins who made no mistake in holding off Eric Wells for the win.

“I’d rather be lucky than good,” Smiled the 31-year-old driver from Fairmont, WV after climbing from his #11 Tim Logan Racing / Rocket XR1 Chassis / Clements Racing Engines machine to a rousing ovation from the packed grandstands. “We were in such a battle there with Eric (Wells) for second for what seemed like the whole race, I didn’t think we had anything for Tommy (Bailey). Then when he (Bailey) had his deal there, I still wasn’t quite sure if we’d be able to hold Eric (Wells) off. But we did it. Thanks to Tim, Cameron, Lee, Rick, Rondall and all the guys who work hard week in and week out.” He added.

Hawkins and Bailey led the field to the green flag for the 50-lap / $5,000 to win main event of the weekend. Bailey would utilize the outside lane to take the lead from Hawkins who then had to deal with Wells, the 2013 World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series rookie of the year, who started behind him in third. Despite six cautions before the halfway point, Bailey was up to the task on each Delaware Double-File Restart and would pull away from the Hawkins/Wells battle after each and every restart.

There were two more restarts once halfway was reached and each time, Bailey would inch away from Hawkins and Wells who never left each other’s side. With three laps to go and heading into turns three and four, Bailey, who had been working the high line for most of the race, jumped the cushion, breaking a tie rod and crashed hard into the turn four guardrail, climbing it and tearing it off its posts. After a 20-minute delay to repair the guardrail. The final restart would see Hawkins get away from Wells from the drop of the last green flag and go on to score his first career Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series Feature win.

Wells settled for second over 2017 Butch Shay Memorial winner, Jason Jameson, who started ninth. V.P. Racing Fuels Fast Qualifier, Duane Chamberlain grabbed fourth ahead of defending track champion, Derek Fisher who completed the top five. Daniel Dial scored a sixth-place finish while five-time track champion, Jason Barrett was seventh after starting 16th. Austin Burns was eighth after starting deep in the field in 22nd while 16-year-old Dalton Brown was ninth from 18th and Tim Turgate rounded out the top 10. Earlier in the afternoon, Chamberlain out-qualified the 25-car field to win the V.P. Racing Fuels Fast Qualifier award with a 14.682 while Hawkins, Bailey and Wells won the Qualifier Heat Races.

The 4th annual Buckeye Late Model Dirt Week is next for the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series as they join their counterparts within the Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Series for two weeks of exciting racing action. It all starts on Wednesday, July 25th with the series’ first ever appearance at Jackson County Speedway in Jackson, OH. Then on Thursday, July 26th a short 40-minute trip west is next as the home of the #BuckeyeLMDirtWeek Atomic Speedway in Waverly, OH hosts the series for the fifth all-time event there, the most of any track in series history.

On Friday, July 27th, the series travels even further west by 80 minutes to Moler Raceway Park in Williamsburg, OH for the second ever race there before ending the first week on Saturday, July 28th with a 200-mile trip northeast to NAPA Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, OH and the third ever race there at the northern most track on the schedule.

The second week begins on Thursday, August 2nd with the track set to host “to be announced” very soon. Then on Friday, August 3rd, it’s onto Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, OH for the next to last race and third ever event for the series there.

HOMETOWN PHENOM TAKES ULTIMATE BATTLE OF THE BLUEGRASS JOHNNY WHEELER TRIBUTE RACE AT BROWNSTOWN

FASTRAK Companies International – By Wesley Outland

BROWNSTOWN, IN – Coming off the conclusion of the biggest purse paying event in the history of the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series Memorial Day weekend at the Daugherty Speedway, the series was set to make its return to the 1/4 mile facility at the Jackson County Fairgrounds aka the Brownstown Speedway for race two on the 2018 calendar. We we're all sad in the industry to hear of the passing of the gentleman Johnny Wheeler aka The Wheelman on Tuesday. It hit the area and series mostly because Wheeler was one of the original competitors of the series of the past. To pay respects to the racing legend, the decision was made by series directors Dj Irvine and Matt Hicks to make the event 31 laps for $3000 to win.

For many fans in attendance they witnessed an awesome show with a driver that cut his teeth to have the career he's captured in motorsports on the national dirt racing level, return home to capture the victory and get a nice tune up before the 24th Annual Dirt Late Model DREAM this coming week at Eldora Speedway. That young man was #71 Hudson O'Neal Racing "The New Deal" from Martinsville, Indiana.

With the entire Midwest united states and more plagued by soggy and wet conditions, with even mother nature's aftermath in notice at the track, the show was successfully completed on a beautiful Saturday evening with temperatures in the mid 80's. Hudson O’Neal would get the night into motion setting fast time during VP Race Fuels QUICKTIME Group Qualifying just only six hundredths off the track record putting a time of 12.785 seconds from Flight #1. The #12 of Lawrenceburg, Indiana’s Jason Jameson was the fastest car in Flight #2 with a 12.802 second lap. The heat races ironically would be taken by the same two competitors of O’Neal and Jameson securing their spots on the front row for the 31 lap $3000 to win Johnny Wheeler Tribute Race.

The race for the most part was total domination by the young man O'Neal who knows Brownstown Speedway like the best of them that are veterans to the track, Jameson tried to make a charge to get to O'Neal in the late rally but would come up short. The race would be halted by only one yellow flag period in the race after the #H9 of Karlie Holt spun between turns three and four also causing the #75 Shane Piatt to get on the binders to avoid missing him. Before the caution on lap 9 the opening laps saw fierce competition with two and three wide racing several rows deep in the field as the sun set in the "Hoosier State" sky at the west end of the speedway overlooking turns three and four.

Other great competition in the event was between #1G Devin Gilpin, #7R Kent Robinson and at times #32 Chad Stapleton aka Total Chaos which battled hard the race even with ill handling conditions with a damaged torn off spoiler. In the end no one could catch the #71 Club 29 Race Cars chassis with Clements Racing Engine under the power-plant to return to where the "Phenom" got his career started following the shoes of his Father Don O'Neal to win the Johnny Wheeler Tribute Race at Brownstown as the crowd gave him a roaring crescendo exiting the car as O'Neal acknowledged the packed house at victory lane. For O'Neal it also got his first super late model win of the 2018 season so far in competition and he continued the winning legacy from Father O'Neal winning under the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series banner as well. Plus, O'Neal makes the 2nd different winner on the series in 2018.

The NEXT stop on the 2018 ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series will be on Saturday June 16th, Father's Day weekend at the immaculate 1/2 mile clay gem - Bill Sawyer's Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia for the 41st Annual USA 100 presented by WhosYourDriver.org . The event will present a $20,000 to win formatted show with all the sanctioning bodies together, ULTIMATE Southeast, ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley, ULTTIMATE Northeast and the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass spotlighted for a phenomenal dirt racing spectacle. Also, the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance, for the Southeast and Mid-Ohio Valley tours will race for $3000 to win (Paid Session) before the 15th Annual "Super Bowl of PRO Late Model Racing" - FASTRAK World Championships in September 14th-15th in the "Commonwealth State".

BRANDON OVERTON SCORES $10,000 AFTER WINNING DICKS POTTS MEMORIAL AT DAUGHERTY SPEEDWAY

Highest paying Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series race in series history

BOSWELL, IN - The Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series kicked off their third season of competition over the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend on Saturday-Sunday, May 26-27th at Daugherty Speedway (IN) with the running of the Dick Potts Memorial. The $10,000 to win Feature was the highlight of the 2018 season opener that also featured the Ultimate Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model Series. After two days in northwest Indiana that saw scorching temperatures throughout the weekend, it would be Brandon Overton making the haul from Evans, GA worthwhile by picking up the five-figure payday.

“We’ve had some terrible luck, it feels good to finally win one. Maybe this will turn us around.” Smiled the 27-year-old regular with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series where he was the 2015 rookie of the year and currently sits eighth in their points. “I kind of figured it was the way to go around the bottom there on the first lap. I just wanted to get out front early and set a pace. This takes a whole team effort and the traffic was very good at showing the leaders respect throughout the race. This is a neat little place.” Added the driver of the #116 Mission Transport / Longhorn Chassis / Durham Engines machine.

2017 Eldora Speedway (OH) Track Champion, Kent Robinson and 2017 MARS Super Late Model Series Champion, Tanner English brought the field down to the green flag to begin the 50-lap feature. As the field entered the first corner, Overton, who started third, shot down to the bottom of the race track making it three-wide down the backstretch. By the time the field reached turn three, Overton had gotten by both Robinson and English to take the early race lead. Overton set the pace throughout the event as lapped traffic kept Overton a safe distance ahead of English and the rest of the pack.

As the laps continued to click off, Robinson, who fell back to third, regrouped and got back by English and set his sights on Overton. Robinson did close the gap, but not enough to mount a serious charge as Overton would go on to lead all 50 laps to take the checkered flag. For Overton, it was his second win of the year and first since a win at East Bay Raceway Park (FL) on February 7th in a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series race. The win was also his second career Ultimate Super Late Model Series victory and first in the Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series. His previous win came in the 2017 Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth, worth $20,000 at Virginia Motor Speedway (VA) back on April 8th, 2017.

Robinson settled for second ahead of English as Chad Stapleton, who started 14th, grabbed the fourth spot ahead of Jason Feger who completed the top five. Austin Burns, who started 15th worked his way up to a sixth place finish as Dustin Golden, Chad Gross, Shane Piatt and Jordan Schriner would wrap up the top 10. The previous day on Saturday, May 26th, Robinson collected the HRE Motorsports Challenge the Clocks Fast Qualifier award, worth $300 with a 14.483. He also scored a Heat Race win while English celebrated his 25th birthday with a win in the other Heat Race. Earlier on Sunday, May 27th, Chad Stapleton grabbed the win in the B Main.

Butch Shay was inducted into the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame in 2015 and into the Kentucky Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2016. The Louisville, KY native began his racing career in 1963 and concluded it 51 years later in 2013. Shay raced in six decades and through the evolution of dirt late models. Richmond Raceway was one of Shay’s favorite tracks, as he competed on the local and regional level.

Richmond Raceway will be operating under new ownership and management in 2018. Bill Lupinos purchased the storied facility with plans to put it back on the map. Lupinos and his family relocated from Seattle, Washington and quickly got to work. They have already made noticeable improvements to the facility, with plans to begin work on the racing surface early next week.

"Our goal is to make this a place families and race teams want to come to,” said Lupinos, “we want to make Richmond great again.”

ULTIMATE INTRODUCES PARTNERSHIP WITH MY RACE PASS

CARNESVILLE, GA – FASTRAK Companies International is excited to begin a partnership with MyRacePass. All series under the FASTRAK Companies International umbrella will begin to exclusively use MyRacePass for live timing and scoring. These series include the FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance, ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series, ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass Super Late Model Series, ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley Super Late Model, and ULTIMATE Northeast Super Late Model Series. MyRacePass will enable drivers and fans alike to view real time scoring as well as lineups for the event, all from the MyRacePass app.

“MyRacePass is thrilled to have a partnership with FASTRAK Companies International for the 2018 season,” said Kris Krug of MyRacePass, “They have proven to be a fan favorite everywhere they go.”

Additionally, MyRacePass will help simplify the driver check-in process at the race track. Drivers will be given a MyRacePass hard card which will have a barcode that can be scanned when checking in. Scanning the hard card will automatically enter the driver into the system for the race. With lineups being available through the mobile app, it will increase the time that crews can work on their cars without the need to make a trip to the pit board at the trailer.

“Our partnership with MyRacePass will have noticeable benefits at the track,” said FASTRAK General Manager DJ Irvine, “It will speed up the process of check-in as well as eliminate the need for drivers or crew members from having to go to the trailer to check lineups.”

MyRacePass will also keep track of the series point standings as drivers compete for the $10,000 to win 2018 FASTRAK Racing Series Championship throughout the season. Additionally, drivers can claim their profiles on MyRacePass and update their bios and accomplishments.

“We’re excited to be able to enhance the fan, driver and staff experience on their race day,” continued Krug, “The entire team at MyRacePass is honored to have a partnership with FASTRAK that will allow us to deliver late model fans and drivers an entirely new race day experience they have never seen before. Teaming up with FASTRAK Companies International is simply going to benefit everyone involved.”

MyRacePass has additional programs that can benefit drivers, series, and tracks. These programs include website design and an apparel program. Teams and tracks can join #TeamMRP through their website, www.myracepass.com .

ULTIMATE INTRODUCES 'BONUS RACES' ACROSS ALL FOUR REGIONS

CARNESVILLE, GA – The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series will give its drivers the opportunity to improve their points total with 'Bonus Races' in the 2018 season. All races with a purse of $10,000 to win or more will be labeled as a Bonus Race outside of the host region. The upcoming $20,000 to win King of the Commonwealth at Virginia Motor Speedway on April 14th, hosted by the ULTIMATE Southeast, will be the first Bonus Race opportunity for drivers in the ULTIMATE Battle of the Bluegrass, ULTIMATE Mid-Ohio Valley, and the ULTIMATE Northeast. The King of the Commonwealth will be a required race for drivers following the ULTIMATE Southeast Super Late Model Series. Drivers who are following any of the other three regions can come to Virginia Motor Speedway and use their points earned to replace a lower finish from one of their region’s races.

Drivers must compete in 75% of their region’s races to receive any point fund money for the season. While missing a Bonus Race will not affect their attendance record, the Bonus Race cannot be used to replace a “0” or no-show for their region. The Bonus Race can not be used as a make-up for a missed race in their home region.

2018 Bonus Races (Host region)

4/14 Virginia Motor Speedway $20,000 (Southeast)
5/26-27 Daugherty Speedway $10,000 (Battle of the Bluegrass)

$100,000 IN ADDITIONAL MEDICAL INSURANCE AVAILABLE FOR ALL ULTIMATE SUPER LATE MODEL SERIES MEMBERS IN 2018

CARNESVILLE, GA - FASTRAK Companies International, parent company of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series, has reached a deal to offer members with $100,000 in participant accident medical insurance through Mutual of Omaha. Members will be able to purchase the policy for a $25 premium.

“I’ve worked for years to get our drivers something like this to make the ULTIMATE membership even more worthwhile,” stated ULTIMATE Founder Stan Lester, “This gives us the ability to offer our drivers another level of protection when they are at the race track.”

The insurance policy is available to all drivers in all ULTIMATE regions; Battle of the Bluegrass, Mid-Ohio Valley, and Northeast. The policy will cover drivers at all ULTIMATE sanctioned events, as well as any FASTRAK sanctioned event.

Drivers will also be able to insure their crew members for an additional $20 per person. Drivers will need to provide ULTIMATE with the names of any crew members they wish to insure, along with payment when they submit their 2018 membership form.

“This is big for our members,” said FASTRAK Companies International General Manager DJ Irvine, “Our sport is inherently dangerous, so to be able to put this program in place to give drivers and their families more protection is a step in the right direction.”

The insurance is a secondary policy that will pay benefits from losses or injuries incurred while at the race track, after the individual’s primary medical policy. The policy will begin to pay benefits once an individual’s primary insurance has responded to the claim. The policy also includes up to $10,000 for Accidental Death and Specific Loss which is outlined in the explanation of benefits that will be made available to drivers.

FASTRAK COMPANIES INTERNATIONAL GEARS UP FOR 15TH YEAR IN BUSINESS

CARNESVILLE, GA - When the green flag flies on February 9, 2018 at Screven Motor Speedway, FASTRAK Companies International will be entering its 15th year in business. It all started because Stan Lester, FASTRAK founder, knew that the highest costs in late model racing were the engines and tires. With the idea that those costs could be controlled, the corporation was formed late in 2003 and held its first ever race, with five cars, on April 3, 2004 at Winder Barrow Speedway in Winder, GA. It was then that the idea by Lester came to fruition.

“All five cars piled up in turn one after the white flag,” said Lester, “The track owner asked me, having never directed a race in my life, “What are you going to do?”, I told the drivers that the first one back to the finish line was the winner. You have never seen such a crazy dash to the finish in your life. It was a humble beginning to say the least.”

During that 2004 season FASTRAK saw tremendous growth. The second event had 18 cars, the third had 22, and the final race of the inaugural season had 51 cars at Oglethorpe Speedway Park in Pooler, GA.

The very next season saw the birth of the FASTRAK Mid-Ohio Valley Region. Sticking with the initial mission of controlling the two most expensive components in racing, engines and tires, FASTRAK now uses the Chevrolet Performance CT 400 (604) engine, an affordable engine that offers 450 horsepower. FASTRAK has worked side by side with Chevrolet Performance to ensure that the engine remains affordable and dependable. To address the costs associated with tires, FASTRAK worked with Hoosier Tire to develop the FT Crate Spec tires known as the FT 200 and FT 400. The FT tires are the cheapest and best performing crate spec tires currently on the market.

“We have stuck to our original mission statement of controlling the cost of the engines and tires, and the 604 and 602 crate engines have met and exceeded all expectations, along with the FT Crate Spec tires” said Lester.

In 2011 the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series was born with the Southeast Region. ULTIMATE itself has since expanded into three more regions, the Battle of the Bluegrass, Mid-Ohio Valley, and Northeast. In total, FASTRAK Companies International now has six regions of dirt late model tours along with its Weekly Sanctioning of tracks throughout the eastern part of the United States. All parts of the FASTRAK family of racing, have a common goal; help tracks make money and give back to the drivers. The following Tuesday after any FASTRAK or ULTIMATE race, the regional director contacts the track with once simple question, “Did you make money?”.

“Our goal is simple,” stated FASTRAK General Manager DJ Irvine, “help tracks make money with successful events, give back to the drivers, and make certain the fans make memories at the race track.”

Over the course of the past 14 years, FASTRAK Companies International has paid out over $4,300,000 in Championship point money to the drivers. The Company looks forward to continuing to reward drivers, while also keeping costs in check. “We’ve done a pretty good job, along with our partners in containing the cost of engines and tires,” stated Lester.
