UDLMCS Heads to Volusia Speedway Park this Saturday for the Late Model Fall Nationals
Barberville, FL (October 19, 2009) In just five more days, the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series will have their Florida State Late Model All-Star Championship with racing action on Friday night at Ocala Speedway for $3000 to win followed by Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park and $5000 to win. These two races will be the next to last race for the series and both nights will see plenty of action.
"We tried our best to run the Labor Day Late Model Shootout with the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series," said General Manager Tonya Moschell, "but Mother Nature would just not cooperate with us. We tried twice and each time we were rained out. This will be our last race of the year with the series and we are definitely looking forward to Saturday night and a great turnout."
"With the weather so nice right now and not melting the fans or drivers, we expect a good crowd Saturday night and a great field of drivers. With the series running Friday night at Ocala, this will definitely be a test to see who really is the "best of the best". It is always a challenge for the drivers when they run two nights in a row and must do repairs if needed."
"With $8000 on the line if one driver can win both nights taking home the $3000 at Ocala and $5000 here at Volusia, you can beat these guys are going to put on one action packed show."
