ULTIMATE Doubleheader Kicks Off Busy Stretch of Racing

While the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series is coming off a weekend off, they are about to tackle a busy stretch of racing.  That starts this weekend, April 30-May 1, with a South Carolina doubleheader.

The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series takes on a South Carolina doubleheader this weekend at Laurens County Speedway and Lancaster Motor Speedway.

ULTIMATE will race at Laurens County Speedway on Friday, April 30 to kick off the doubleheader weekend for the Dirt Late Model touring series.  On Saturday, May 1, the series will make the two-hour trip east to Lancaster Motor Speedway for the second leg of the doubleheader.

 

Friday’s race is the Ronnie Brookshire Memorial, paying $4,014 to the winner.  Saturday’s race at Lancaster will pay another $4,000 to win.

 

This weekend sets up a busy stretch of racing for the ULTIMATE Super Late Models throughout the month of May.  The series will go to Cherokee Speedway on May 8 before a doubleheader weekend in Virginia on May 14-15.  That weekend includes a stop at a new venue for the series, Natural Bridge Speedway, before taking on the $20,000-to-win King of the Commonwealth at Virginia Motor Speedway.

 

Another doubleheader weekend is on the horizon for ULTIMATE.  They will race May 14-15 at Natural Bridge Speedway and Virginia Motor Speedway.

 

The series will then close out May with a return to Cherokee for the Big Chief 50.  That race will pay $7,500, another big payday for the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series.

 

Dustin Mitchell scored the win in the ULTIMATE season opener at Lake View Motor Speedway, while Brandon Overton was victorious in the second race of the season at Modoc Raceway.  Anthony Sanders currently leads the ULTIMATE points standings by one marker over Mitchell, with Jeff Smith, Matthew Nance and series rookie Cla Knight rounding out the top five.
