May 22, 2017 - Race numbers five, six, and seven recently produced three different winners during 2017 Lucas Cattle Company ULMA events. Despite some less than desirable weather in recent weeks, Callaway Raceway in Fulton and Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland hosted drivers and fans for their respective race programs.

Although Callaway Raceway suffered another rainout during last weekend’s planned events, defending ULMA Champion Dustin Hodges captured the victory the week before as he claimed his first win of the season. Hodges had the goods to deliver the win over Chris Cox, Todd McCoin, Cody Holtkamp, and Gage Wineland.

ULMA drivers have the weekend off at Callaway Raceway but will return to action for back-to-back weeks on Friday, June 2nd and Friday, June 9th. On June 2nd, gates open at 5, the drivers meeting begins at 6:45, hot laps roll out at 7, and racing begins at 7:30.

Lucas Oil Speedway is coming off back-to-back weekends of weekly championship racing before taking off this weekend for the annual Show-Me 100 event for super late models. Two Saturdays ago, last season’s ULMA Rookie of the Year and track champion, Aaron Marrant, rang the winner bell for the first time this season by holding off several drivers who recorded their best finishes of the season, including Jon Binning, Aaron Poe, Lane Ehlert, and Cody Holtkamp inside the top five.

Last weekend at Lucas Oil Speedway, a large field of 30 cars took part in the action. Larry Ferris, Johnny Fennewald, and Aaron Marrant claimed heat-race victories while Daniel Jessen of Joplin, Missouri claimed the B-main victory. In the main event, Fennewald raced to his fourth-career ULMA victory and first since early August of last season. Behind the Appleton City, Missouri winner were Marrant, Ferris, Aaron Poe, and Todd McCoin to round out the top five.

As previously mentioned, ULMA drivers have the weekend off at Lucas Oil Speedway, which is hosting the annual Show-Me 100 over the Memorial Day holiday. ULMA Late Models return to action at the speedway on Saturday, June 10th. For complete information regarding the speedway, visit www.lucasoilspeedway.com.
