(Macon, IL) Race fans will be treated to a special UMP Late Model event at the Macon Speedway on Thursday, July 8th, with the running of the Herald & Review 100. This event will mark stop 21 in the 28 date Summer Nationals Late Model tour. Summer National fans will also have a special treat as NASCAR Star Ken Schrader will also be on hand for the huge event. The Summer Nationals tour pays over three-quarters of a million dollars in prize money with Thursday night’s winner taking home $6000 for their win. The UMP Summer Nationals tour has quickly become one of the most anticipated dirt Late Model tours in the nation that attracts talented drivers like Dennis Erb, Randy Korte, Rodney Melvin, Brian Shirley, Jason Feger, Billy Moyer and Shannon Babb.

In addition to the exciting hundred lap UMP Late Model feature, our UMP Modified division will also hit the track.
