Eldon, Missouri (September 23, 2017) - Justin Russell of Henley, Missouri captured his first 2017 ULMA Late Model win last Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway. Nineteen drivers signed in for competition as the Lucas Cattle Company 2017 nears completion. The victory marked Russell’s fourth-career ULMA win and first since April of 2015 at Lucas Oil Speedway, where he was Track Champion that season.

Unfortunately, the race was marred by a race incident that left Aaron Marrant and Johnny Fennewald with ULMA fines for violations of ULMA general race rules. Fines must be paid prior to each driver competing if they wish to race at I-35 Saturday, September 30th when the season ends. ULMA has heard from Lake Ozark Speedway management indicating the track will announce separately their plans regarding the incident. During the previous week at Lake Ozark Speedway, all participant drivers received one “show” point. The rained out race was not and will not be made up at the speedway.

What's Next: The eleventh season of ULMA concludes Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Mike and Kyle Johnson’s I-35 Speedway in Winston, Missouri. During ULMA’s last appearance at I-35 Speedway in June, Dylan Hoover took the victory with the rest of the podium including Larry Ferris and Cody Holtkamp. On Saturday at I-35 Speedway it is Tompkins Industries Night at the Races featuring Midwest Lightning Sprints, SMVR (Vintage) racing plus ULMA Late Models and weekly championship racing. There will be Power Wheel races during intermission. General Admission $15, Seniors (62 & Over) $12, Kids 7-12 $6, Kids 6 & Under Free. Pit Pass $35 with Pit Passes for Kids 6-10 $25, 5 and under free. Hot laps begin at 6:30, racing at 7. Find more information on the track’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/i35speedway. The standings are close heading into the final race of the season as early season leader Cody Holtkamp has returned to the top of the leader board. Aaron Marrant is now second with previous champion Dustin Hodges in third. Please note, mention of driver name in press release does not guarantee race appearance. ULMA will release final point standings and prize fund payout information in next week’s press release.
