Non-wing sprints will highlight the action this Friday May 22nd at Lincoln Speedway for Mt. Pulaski Night. The sprints will be racing as the debut of the WAR-East Series, a newly-formed counterpart to the existing WAR series that has been hugely successful in Missouri.
Also in action are Springfield Iron and Metal Pro Late Models, Nutech Lightning Sprints, Hornets and B-Mods.
As a part of Mt. Pulaski night at the races, anyone with a Mt. Pulaski address on their drivers license will be admitted to the grandstands for only $5.
1. 3-Link 602 Crates per UMP Pro Mod rules = 2,400 pounds.
2. 4- Bar 602 Crates (spoon/Peoria) = 2,500 pounds, with 50 pounds bolted in front of the radiator.
3. We don’t anticipate any 365 open motors but for this week they will race with a 2 barrel at the same weights as above depending on suspension.
No spoilers. Grooving and siping allowed for a period of time. Modified A and H tires only.
Please note that we are geographically between the 3-link UMP cars to our South and the 4-bar cars to our North. Long term we want to move people toward the 3-link UMP car so we need those cars to be competitive. We are trying to strike a fair balance between the two cars. Jeff Schmidt our lead technical official has spent a lot of time thinking through how to even the playing field. This is where we are going to start. If we see one or the other has an advantage based on rules instead of talent, we will adjust accordingly in future weeks.
As we have said, we have a partial schedule right now for B-Mods. If we see a healthy field developing we will add nights with a long-term view of making the B-Mod a part of our weekly program.
Payout will be $250 to win/$40 to start. We will post the full payout on our website shortly.
