Ten thousand dollars will once again be on the line when the UMP Summer Nationals invade the racy quarter mile bullring known as “FALS”. The 50-lap feature, sponsored by Lynn Chevrolet Buick in Pontiac, will bring a great crop of drivers from across the Midwest to compete with each other on Saturday night, June 25th. Also racing that evening will be the UMP Modifieds battling in the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals paying $1,500 to win for their 25-lap feature event. The UMP Street Stocks will also be competing for $400 to win.
Weekend events will open up Thursday night, June 23rd at 6:00 p.m., when campers will be allowed on the grounds for the annual summer event. Camping reservations from online registration will be directed to their camping spot by speedway officials upon arrival, but there will be camping available on the grounds for people that have not registered. First come first serve for those people wanting to camp with a camping fee of $35.00 for the entire Summer Nationals event weekend.

Taking wins were Kevin Weaver, Mike McKinney, A.J. Meiferdt, Richard Craven, Graham Jackson, and Ryan Hamilton.
