July 26, 2017 - Lucas Cattle Company ULMA drivers competed at Lucas Oil Speedway last Saturday in near record heat and in the end fans were treated to one of the best main events of the season as Todd Shute of Des Moines, Iowa claimed his second-straight win at the track in Wheatland, Missouri.

As one observer stated, Saturday night the ULMA Late Models put on the best and cleanest feature of the season as the race went green to checkered for the 25-lap, $1,000-to-win event. In fact, it was such a great race that Speedway Management told the drivers after the feature that each participant will receive a free crew member pit pass on their next visit for the outstanding race. The drivers proved Saturday night why they are the premier weekly class.

Highlights from the recent Lucas Oil Speedway press release regarding the event state that, “Shute jumped to an early race lead before Fennewald moved to the front by lap four. Shute bobbled a bit down the back stretch but regained his composure and regained the lead from Fennewald halfway through the event. Chris Cox finished in third behind Shute and Fennewald while Aaron Poe came away in fourth with Daniel Jessen finishing in fifth.

Racing continues this Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway and fans bringing four non-perishable food items to the main gate will receive one free admission to the races. Just three Weekly Racing Series events remain, including the Season Championships on Aug. 26. Aaron Poe leads the ULMA Late Model points race by 52 over defending champion Aaron Marrant and 75 over Johnny Fennewald.

On Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway, gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 7 and racing at 7:35. Admission prices: (One FREE admission for four non-perishable food items). Adults (16 and up) $12. Seniors/Military (62 and up) $9. Youth (6-15) $5. Kids (5-and-under) FREE. Family Pass $25. Pit Pass $30.

The heat took its toll on many events last weekend, including Lakeside Speedway, which canceled racing at the track. The second and final night of the RacinDirt.com Double-Down Showdown will now finish up on Friday, August 11th at Lakeside Speedway. The Lakeside winner will take away $600 with the race paying $100 to take the green flag in the main event. The overall top three positions in the mini-points battle will compete for the $250 first-place money in the special point’s battle, second will earn $150, and third will go away with an extra $100. The event is made possible courtesy of Racin.Dirt.com!

ULMA was recently contacted by the new promotions company taking over operations at the Missouri State Fair Speedway effective immediately. MC Promotions assured ULMA board members that the race date scheduled for Sunday, August 20th during the Missouri State Fair is still very much a part of the action to close out the fair. ULMA will support the ASCS National Sprint Car tour during this event. The race will pay $700 to win and $100 to start the main event. This is a rare and distinguished opportunity for ULMA drivers to compete at and add their name to the storied list of drivers that have turned laps at the ‘Historic Half-Mile’ in Sedalia, Missouri.

All competing drivers must either purchase the yearly license or a temporary license to race in this weekend’s events. The 2017 license form is printable from the ULMA website.
