PPMS welcomes new series

Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway begins competition tonight with an added twist this season to its usual 23-race schedule.

The change adds the Unified Force Race Championship - a traveling series that is designed to attract more drivers from the region with bigger prize money. The 12 UFO races will be split between five area tracks within 120 miles of Monroeville, Pa. PPMS will play host to four of those races on May 18, July 13 and Aug. 17. The Pittsburgher 100 on the weekend of Sept. 18 will award the UFO winner more than $20,000.

PPMS will continue its weekly “action events” with its six normal divisions racing each Saturday, including tonight. The “action event” races begin at 7 p.m. each Saturday this summer.

Last year‘s champions:
Super late models - Jared Miley
Crate late models - Kyle Lukon
E-modified - Wayne Tessean
Pure stocks - Joe Anthony
Amateur stocks - Davy Lee
Young guns - Dusty Curry and Michael Reft
