May 15, 2019 - UCRA New & Notes for Fort Payne Mayhem 40
1 KEY NOTES: The UCRA will yet again attempt to make its 2nd trek to the home base of Janis Ingram and Marvin Ford's Fort Payne (AL) Motor Speedway 45-minutes South of Chattanooga, TN off I-59, Saturday May 18th, after a week delay from Mothernature. All eyes will be on leading Rookie contender Seth Wimpey of Blue Ridge, GA to see if he can back-up his dominating performance of FPMS, from back in March at the "Bama Brawl". Current Points Leader Jesse Lowe of Crossville, TN got a break recently at I-75, during the feature when Top 3 running Wimpey, fell out of the race with one lap remaining, regulating him to a 13th place finish. One point separates first from second in the $16,000 National Points chase. Many other top 604/Crate Late Model race-teams should be in competition at FPMS Saturday. Previous UCRA/Fort Payne winners include; Chip Brindle of Dalton GA, local's Sam Seawright (who's chasing the $1,000 Rookie of the Year Bonus), "The Hurricane" Kasey Hall  and Kyle May. Last season’s UCRA Champion Jimmy Elliott of Cleveland, TN is likely to enter, as is his racing pal; 2018 Rookie of the Year Michael Courtney of Knoxville, who'se currently second in points. "Hot" Rod Carrol of Anniston, AL and Kenny Kizzar of Graysville Mtn, TN look to build on their Round #2 performances also this Saturday at FPMS. The Top 5 in points are all within striking distance of one another, Super Late Models, 602/Sportsman, A-Hobby, B-Hobby, Bombers, Pony and FWD are also racing with the $2,500 to-WIN 604/Crate UCRA series annual "Mayhem 40" lapper.

Who to watch: Either brother J.T. or Sam Seawright locals, unknown to which, as rumor has it a switch from Super Late Model to Crate Late Model amongst teenagers has transpired.  Seth Wimpey was strong in Round #1 and Round #2 s far this season..
