The management of both the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series North East Region and Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway have collectively decided to not
sanction the upcoming “Red Miley Memorial” at PPMS scheduled on August 26th.
“Both staffs talked about it and the decision was made that this event just didn’t need
sanctioning” ULTIMATE North East Region Director Rose Compton said. “We enjoyed being there
in July, and the teams, fans and speedway now see how ULTIMATE does things and as a series and
that’s all we wanted to do. Teams and fans now see that although ULTIMATE is a Regional Super
Late Model Series, it’s ran more like a National Tour. The teching, the format and the thicker purse
is something everyone now knows about and that was our only goal for 2017.”
Compton went on to say that the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series North East Region is
now concentrating on new innovative programs between the sanctioning body and tracks, and
schedules for the 2018 racing season and beyond.
“As tight as our schedules are for the rest of the year we are simply out of time,” Compton
said. “Our new “co op” advertising plan for our $5000-to-win and up events is going “off the charts”
of what we would ever expected, and we felt our time was better spent finalizing plans for 2018. I
have to make a trip to the corporate office so we can finalize everything for 2018. I can’t share
everything we are doing in 2018 for our track events, but it’s going to be something the racing
industry has never seen before.”
There is an excitement among the ULTIMATE Officials as the four Regions get ready for
2018. The ULTIMATE NE Region is the newest in the ULTIMATE family of Regions, and Compton
has been busy working with the Corporate Office in Carnesville, GA getting everything in place for
“Our corporate staff has been working their tails off all year on putting something together
for 2018,” Compton said. “They started in March of this year working on 2018 and when we have
our weekly staff meetings via Skype each week. There seems to be something new each meeting. We
do appreciate the teams coming out and supporting the July ULTIMATE event at PPMS and look
forward to working with them in 2018.”
The PRI Show in December is when you will start seeing a hint of what’s coming in 2018 and
be ready, racing is about to get better in all regions of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series.
Larger purses, and co op advertising for the speedways are only a small part of the plan.
