There are different tires. FASTRAK uses the FT 200/400. A waiver can be signed for the fire bottle.

Yeah, not sure going against RUSH is a good idea, sort of like fighting the empire at this point. Everyone went in another direction seems to have went RUSH eventually, Raceway 7, Dog Hollow, Stateline.
I will share what the benefits of FASTRAK are.
$50,000 TO WIN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP and $2050 to start
$10,000 to win WORLD CHALLENGE for weekly members only with X amount of races (separate event)
National Weekly Championship between all the weekly members from sanctioned tracks
$1000 given to each track towards "divisional point funds"
Absolute best performing and wearing crate spec tire in the market
Stan Lester our Founder started crate late model racing in the US April 2004
AFCO crate spec shock retails for $186 (real racing shock and your current hardware works on it)
First class awards banquet
FASTRAK also owns the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Brand
Management living in PA now
FASTRAK concentrates on dirt racing, nothing else
FASTRAK invested over $300,000 in crate racing in that area in point funds paid and sponsorships.
Keep in mind Latrobe is not the only track from that area calling either. My guess is people think there needs to be a little competition there.

SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY “SHOWDOWN ON SAND HILL” JUNE 9;
LIMITED LATE MODEL MASON DIXON SHOOTOUT SERIES
WILL JOIN STOCK CAR RACING SHOWCASE!
SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The Northeast Ultimate Super Late Model Series will sanction the “Showdown on Sand Hill” at Selinsgrove Speedway Saturday, June 9.

From a person that owns several super late model series and a couple of crate late model series, if you don;t mind I'll chime in here.
1) I have seen it for the last 10 years around the middle of June all car counts start falling off little by little. People simply run out of money.
2) I don't think crates have hurt supers at all. People run crates because they cannot afford to run supers more than anything and proof of that might be the better funded crate teams all move to supers eventually. Damian Bidwell, Mike Legher Jr, Colton Flinner, Matt Latta, Max Blair, Jonathon Davenport, Chris Ferguson, Shanon Buckingham, Zach Mitchell and many more are proof of that. Supers are the natural progression of things and I think every crate driver for the most part wants to run supers in the end.
3) To be competitive it takes 2 super engines at $55,000 - $65,000 now to compete.
4) Shock technology and aero has run a lot of people out of supers. Not many people go to a race knowing they don't have a chance.
5) Coal industry is still off and that limits a ton of funds.
It's a tough deal right now guys. Getting better but still tough. One race we have 35 cars the next we have 19 and stand their with our mouths open wondering what happened. lol. Just keep supporting your local tracks and the series races too when you can and we will all be better in the end.

Thanks for all the comments. I will not comment on the Vickie deal. If you haven't figured that out by now, you never will.
Moving forward! Hope you see some of you. Anytime you want to come run with us please feel free too. Promise we will treat you like family and you will have a good time regardless of how you run.

The entry fee for the PPMS first ever ULTIMATE Super Late Model event has been reduced to $50 plus $5 lab fee for tire testing. In working with the Mileys yesterday the decision was made between both management teams to reduce the fee for this event. We test tires at every ULTIMATE event. The $5 fee was suggested by the teams to hold us accountable and is posted on the ULTIMATE NE facebook page for everyone to see. NO HIDDEN AGENDAS.
This race is $3000 to win but please note the pay through the field plus it is $400 just to start. This event has been compared to a $5000 to win race- again take note of the complete payout. Same thing with a race at another track and a higher to win amount. our idea is to pay thicker rather than top heavy and I honestly have no idea what these other purses are. I would suggest you compare them. EVERY team needs money to come, not just the winner. We could easily match practically any purse providing we did not look after everyone instead of just 1st. If in the future (2018) you think a $50 entry fee and $200 to start is a better deal for you, then please let us know and it sure will make it easier for us to book races. This $400 to win model has worked up and down the East Coast to this point. We will meet with super late model teams over the winter to address all the rules, purses, etc. Obviously everyone wants more money, but its important to us to take care of everyone, versus just the winner. Keep in mind this is an event to introduce the teams to the series and vice versa.
I highly doubt any weekly super late model purse comes close to this total, even though it might pay $3000 to win.
Tire rule was made to match as much of the local tire rule as possible. 1300 and up seems to be pretty standard for the area or so we were told. Both tire brands are included.
We would have to assume no National drivers are coming for the most part. 1) They are on tours of their own. 2) Most of them do not run for less than $10,000. We are fortunate that those same National teams do come run with ULTIMATE when they are off as our format is very similar to theirs and they do look at the pay through the field.
Regional Series. Our number 1 goal is to provide fans and tracks a show they can afford versus some tracks simply cannot handle a $50,000 plus one day show for the National Tours. In some cases thats a simple matter of not having enough seating for that expense. This way those same tracks can have a Regional Super Late Model tour and their fans can see some great super late model racing at a reasonable ticket price.
Regional Super Late Model Teams can participate and be ready when they decide that want to go try one of the National Tours. Format similar, tires similar, etc. It puts them in a better position to compete versus getting completely just thrown to the wolves.
One thing you might consider on the "normal" $100 entry fee is its the same for all our events. Doesn't matter if its a $20,000 to win 1 day show or a $3000 to win 1 day show, its still the same $100. We do have several $20,000 to win events each year, $10,000 to win and one $12,000 to win and I think we can do the same there given the opportunity. I don't know of many super shows (if any) that pay $20,000 to win for a 1 day show. We have 2 of those each year.
The point fund in the South started at $10,000 to win - then as it grew $15,000 to win and in its 5th year was announced to be $20,000 to win which is the strongest in the country for a Regional Super Late Model Series (as far as we know). We never had any intentions of getting into super late models, but as our teams grew from crate late models and wanted to move into supers, they asked us to start something as did several of the chassis builders so after discussing it for 2 years we decided to move forward with it. The SE Region is in its 7th year now and holds 25-30 events per year. New tracks call every year wanting an event, but we just don't have anymore open dates to give them. Our car counts average 26.8 in the SE. You never have to pay a membership fee unless you want to run for the points. Annual member fee is only $100. Last place in the points pays over $1000. Rookie in the SE started at $500 and 3 drums of fuel. Now its over $3000 in cash plus prizes. There is no reason the same cannot be expected in the NE Region with your support. One step at a time and this Saturday is the beginning.
We hope you come and give it a chance to be what it can be with good support from Regional teams. We do not own and will not own any teams that will race in any of our series. Our goals are to give the local fans a great show with superb regional talent at an affordable price. Beginning in 2018 events will have fireworks, 4 wide salute to the fans, autograph sessions for the fans and some fantastic racing. if you allow us to do our job I think you will be glad you did and we love to hear from the fans as to what you think we can do better for you. You will see a lot of activity on our ULTIMATE NE late model face book page and always a good place to interact with the series.

I never cease to be amazed how negative people can be. I can clearly see why PR people despise message boards. This is the reason message boards are closing on a weekly basis.
Its only the single largest late model race in the United States this weekend, expecting 70-90 late models and you complain? Over $80,000 in purse money in one single day and all you can see is how something is wrong???
Theres a lot of difference between doing something and trying to tear something down with a keyboard. Apply that same amount of effort to helping motorsports and we would all be a lot better off.

Come on now. I appreciate the people that believe in us, I even appreciate the people that don't know what happened, but say they do and take up for "them" but really no need in being mad at each other. Personally me not saying something about all this is one of the hardest things I ever did in my life, but who would believe me anyway? If I posted the contract between the former employment on here and told it like it was, well some would believe me and some would not so really what have I gained? I have to stick to what I base my life on and thats truth. 100% truth 100% of the time and thats what we do. Having a little class is certainly hard to do under these circumstances. I can tell you this much. I was taught some valuable lessons, spent a lot of time being mad and honestly, its just not worth it.
FASTRAK is going into its 13th year. You can't stay in business that long in this industry and not do something right. Our rules have changed very, very little over the years and that alone saves FASTRAK teams tons of money. We just had our rules meeting this past Saturday at our banquet. We brought up topics, the teams brought up topics then the teams voted on them and that's the rules. The way they voted, not things that lined our pockets. This series is made for our teams. They make the rules and we enforce them. Pretty simple concept really. It's how we have done things from the beginning and will continue to do so as long as I am in charge. There were tracks sitting in the rules meeting that when we came out they stopped me and said "wow, I have never seen a rules meetings go that easy". To me that's something to be proud of. COOPERATION BETWEEN THE SERIES AND THE TEAMS. I mean it just makes common sense to me that if we work with the teams, all of our jobs are easier in the end.
Luckily we didn't need to address many things and everyone left happy as far as I know. if you have anything you would like to ask I would suggest you ask me. Otherwise its what you think, versus what you know. My number is 678-935-7304 and email is email@example.com I sure don't do everything right,but I won't run from you or avoid you either.
I love racing. My dad drive for 28 years. I drove for 34. My son drove for 31 and my grandson is driving now and going into his 9th year so racing is what we do. Series, track or actually driving, racing is all I know. My interest is in the sport.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Walker Arthur wins first ever FASTRAK NATIONAL TOUR EVENT!
(Jamaica, VA) 4/13/15 – To say the first ever FASTRAK National Tour event was a success would be an understatement as 37 of the East Coast’s top Pro Late Model ushered in a new era in FASTRAK racing. Local favorite and former track champion Walker Arthur of Forest, VA etched his name into the record books by winning the first event FASTRAK National Tour event in dominating fashion. The first ever National Tour race was a companion event for the Aaron’s King of the Commonwealth sanctioned by its sister series the Ultimate Super Late Model tour. History was made and Walker Arthur was the victor.
“We’ve turned a lot of laps around this place but this has to be one of the biggest wins I have ever had here at VMS. The car has been so good all year and it ran just flawless tonight. Even though we didn’t do as well as we want in the Super Late model tonight, we are super excited about winning the first ever FASTRAK National Tour event here at our home track,” commented Arthur in victory lane.
At the drop of the green flag Arthur rocketed to the lead from his pole position as David Smith, Jimmy Schlitz, Daniel Baggerly and Mark Parks went four wide to decide second. With the action behind him Arthur pulled away to a comfortable lead. By lap 11 Arthur began working lapped traffic while the battle for second continued between Smith, Parks and Schiltz. It was truly a “battle royale” as they raced three wide for 12 laps for 2nd place and behind that was two and three wide racing in numerous positions. When one driver would finally make the pass or slip behind another driver was right there to fill in the gap. It was truly an amazing battle in almost every position on the speedway.
At the halfway point Arthur maintained almost a full straight lead over the field while masterfully working lapped traffic. With plenty of two, three and even four wide racing behind him Arthur continued to stretch out the lead. On lap 20 Kennie Compton Jr. joined the battle for second picking off drivers one by one until he finally claimed the spot from Smith on lap 30. With 10 laps remaining Compton tried to reel in the leader but Arthur was too strong going on to take the $3000 victory with Compton, Smith, Parks and Schlitz, Matt Long, 2014 FASTRAK World Champion Tim Dohm, Dillon Brown, Daniel Baggerly and Jared Powell rounding out the top ten.
In addition to Arthur’s $3000 payday, event title-sponsor Aaron’s Inc. presented Arthur with a new 49” LG 4K Ultra HD Television as a part of the Aaron’s “Best Seat in the House” Promotion.
The Fast Time Award went to Dillon Brown with a time of 18.563 seconds. Heat race wins went to Walker Arthur, David Smith, Daniel Baggerly and Jimmy Schlitz. B-Main wins went to Jimmy Duncan and Colby Cannon.
Virginia Motor Speedway, the home of the September 18-19, 2015 FASTRAK World Championship, will host another $30000 to win National Tour event on Saturday May 16th as part of the Tire-X USA 100 with its sister series the Ultimate Super Late Models.
The next FASTRAK National Tour event will be May 2, 2015 at Toccoa Speedway for a $2000 to win event.
