The quest for the ULMA championship gets under way in just over two weeks at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO, on Saturday, March 31st, which is the first night drivers begin earning points towards the championship. With a total of 28 drivers already signed on as members and the prospect of several more signing up during the initial weeks of the season, the championship race is going to be exciting to watch all year long! Only drivers that join the association as members are eligible for ULMA sponsor point fund bonus money and contingency prizes at the affiliated tracks and special events. During the season, drivers can earn points at Callaway Raceway, Central Missouri Speedway (CMS), Lucas Oil Speedway and Valley Speedway or special designated events by keeping their overall 15 best points-earning nights of the year. After a driverís initial 15 events are recorded they will begin replacing their worst pointís nights with improved performances, which should make for an exciting finish down the final stretch! The inaugural champion will be crowned at the ULMA banquet, which is in the early planning stages but set for October 20th in Sedalia, MO.
