Officials with Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri and Representatives with GM Performance Parts and Reliable Chevrolet are pleased to announce an incentive program for ULMA Late Model Drivers running a GM 602 or 604 Crate Engine at Lucas Oil Speedway in 2010. A $200 bonus will be paid to the highest finishing GM Crate Motor with an extra $100 going to a random driver running the GM Crate Motor at each show that the ULMA Late Model Class competes this season. By combining the standard $700 to win plus the $200 bonus, a win in a Crate Engine car would be worth $900 in 2010.
"With the high cost of the Late Model Engines these days, a GM Crate Engine is a great option and I am excited to partner with GM Performance Parts and Reliable Chevrolet to offer this incentive program in 2010" stated Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager Dan Robinson. "If you are considering making the switch to a GM Crate Engine, I urge you to give Jason Ulven at Reliable Chevrolet a call as they are the leader in the Crate Engine Program in Southwest Missouri." Reliable Chevrolet can be found on the web at www.ReliableChevy.com.
The winner of the bonus money each night must pass a thorough Technical Inspection and be deemed Legal by the Lucas Oil Speedway Technical Staff prior to receiving the bonus. This money will be paid on top of any standard Lucas Oil Speedway winnings that night. There are 15 scheduled races this season in the ULMA Late Model class. For complete rules concerning the engine options with ULMA, please visit www.LucasOilSpeedway.com or www.ULMAracing.com.
In addition to the added bonus money from GM and Reliable Chevrolet, GM will also provide Hats and T-Shirts to all of the bonus money winners throughout the season. To be eligible for the program, all Crate Engine powered late models must run the GM Performance Parts decals on each fender and on the hood as outlined by GM. Lucas Oil Speedway will place GM/Reliable signage at the facility as well as maintain a special section on www.LucasOilSpeedway.com that will highlight the winners and maintain a weekly list of the number of Crate cars that compete each week at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks."
