Yesterday, Super Late Models returned to the track for the first time in eight years as local favorite, Freddie Carpenter tested out the racing surface for speedway officials.

RaceFest will again welcome a pair of series co-sanctioning the event as the North meets the South for an October arrangement in the Mountain State. On October 8th and 9th the stars and cars of Chris Zuvers Northern ULMS will greet Chris Tilley’s Southern Iron-Man. Each series brings a variety of motorsports talent with PA favorite Max Blair leading the charge for ULMS while Iron-Man Ryan King currently leads the 2020 point standings.
On Friday October 8th ULMS & Iron-Man Super Late Models will take to the Worlds Fastest Dirt Track for a solid $5,000 to win while Saturday October 9th the prime time division takes center stage for a $15,000 dollar payday.
“We’re excited to further the tradition of RaceFest at WVMS as well as bring two standout regional series into the town for this prestigious fall classic” stated Watson. “Both Chris’ have solid series’ and drivers who put on great shows. I can’t wait to see their rosters blend as well as other local, regional and national drivers who want to win a possible $20,000” added Watson. “In addition, I wanted to ensure that the support divisions of the area were a big part of the weekend too so they can come enjoy the camping and atmosphere that comes along with a two day show at WVMS” concluded Watson.
As mentioned, RaceFest not only displays the full fendered division but boasts a solid slate of support divisions anxious to turn the final laps of the season on the ‘Speedplant’. UMP Modifieds, Sport Mods and Steel Blocks will roll into the speedway for a two day weekend featuring heat races on Friday night and three $1,500 to win features on Saturday respectively.
