ULTIMATE SOUTHEAST SLATED FOR 28 DATES IN 2019 ANCHORED BY VMS BIGGIES
CARNESVILLE, GA - The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Southeast Region released the working schedule for the Series’ ninth season of competition in 2019 today. The slate includes 21 confirmed dates along with 7 dates that are to be announced in the next few weeks. As in recent years the series opens its season in early March at the 1/3rd mile North Georgia Speedway and the series will again close out the year at Sylvania, Georgia’s Screven Motor Speedway in November.
The ULTIMATE SE schedule is also once again highlighted with a pair of $20,000 to win events at Bill Sawyer’s immaculate Virginia Motor Speedway in Jamaica, Virginia. The Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth is set for Saturday, April 20th while Ernie Shelton’s 43rd Annual USA 100 presented by WhosYourDriver.org will be Saturday, June 15that the Mid-Atlantic region half-mile oval. Both events will be one-day shows with 60 lap features.
New to the ULTIMATE venue line-up for 2019 will be the Scott Tripp owned and promoted Lake View Motor Speedway. The 4/10ths of a mile facility is located in Nichols, South Carolina. Also returning to the schedule after several years’ absence will be Friendship Motor Speedway in Elkin, North Carolina along with Patriot’s Park Raceway (formerly known as 441 Speedway) in Dublin, Georgia. The series only previous visit to Friendship was rained out in May of 2013 while the only previous visit to Patriot’s Park was in June 2012 when Casey Roberts picked up one of his series-leading 20 career wins.
Series officials are awaiting finalization of the dates that are listed TBA in the initial schedule release. “We are waiting on all the final pieces to fall into place to announce all of our TBA events. We actually have tracks for our TBA dates. It’s not something that we are hoping to book. With racing season lasting nearly year-round, it takes a little extra time to get some things firmed up for some of our promoters. We anticipate announcing dates at some new venues as well as some returns to some of our previous host facilities. But we wanted to get our schedule out as early as possible for teams to make plans and so we could make any tweaks that may become necessary. I have been very pleased with the number of date requests that we have received for 2019. We have also been encouraged with the number of drivers inquiring about our 2019 season with eyes on chasing our point championship.” said ULTIMATE SE Series Director Kelley Carlton.
