Outlaw Hosts Kent Summer Nationals; Super Lates Added

By Kenny Shupp Jr.

DUNDEE,NY- Outlaw Speedway owner/promoter, Tyler Siri is pleased to announce the Annual Summer Nationals are scheduled for Friday, July 29, 2022 at the track.

“This one of our signature events that we annually promote here at Outlaw, stated Siri.  After opening the season with a couple of big events including the Spring Nationals in April, the Fall Nationals come in September and Dutch Hoag Weekend in October, so this is our premier event held in the summer. Since I purchased the facility, we have hosted the Summer Nationals every year and in 2022 we have a block buster line-up including the ULMS Super Late Models.”

The Chris Zuver promoted United Late Model Series (ULMS) is now in its twenty-first year and continues to grow in car counts and the number of tracks visited.  Many of the top Northeast’s Late Model pilots follow the series and are most are planning on attending the event at Outlaw Speedway.

With its 4/10 of a mile configuration of long straight a ways and wide, sweeping corners, Outlaw Speedway is a perfect fit for the highly powered Super Late Models where drivers can just stand on the gas of their 800 plus horse powered behemoth machines.  

Outlaw has hosted a pair of World of Outlaw Late Model events within the past few years and the class was very well received at the facility with huge crowds albeit the fact Outlaw Speedway lies primarily in Modified Country.

“For the second consecutive year, I think having the ULMS here it gives fans an opportunity to see how well they can perform on a wide, fast, racy track.  We generally promote Modifieds and Sportsman as the headline divisions each week along with a group of outstanding support divisions, but when I get an opportunity to put a top touring group like ULMS on the schedule, I am going to book it.  The fans are in for a real treat on July 29.  Last years ULMS Show was fabulous, and we are expecting another packed pit area and capacity grandstand”.  That once again according to Siri.

Also, on the Friday night card of events it will be a complete show of the Friendly Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram Modifieds as they will compete for a winner’s share of $3,500 as will the Patriot Sprints.  The Sunrise Insulation American Racer Tire and Speed Connection DIRTcar Hoosier Tire Divisions will join forces for a combined Open Tire Sportsman special paying $1,750. The Stan’s No Tubes Street Stocks winner will pocket a check for $1,200 and both the Winner’s Circle Deli Mini Stocks along with the NAPA Hobby Stocks will race for a winner’s share of $900 each.

Steve Kent of Elmira, NY was a standout driver throughout his career primarily running in full fender classes like the Super Stocks and 360 Late Models.  Later in life he could be found working the pit area lending a hand on several different competitor’s machines and he had his favorite seat always reserved towards the top of the main grandstand seating area.  Steve Kent hardly missed an event, and his presence is sorely missed at Outlaw Speedway. He truly was a friend to all!  Thus, his name is etched into the Steve Kent Summer Nationals at the Outlaw Speedway for 2022.

Free Camping is provided at the track all weekend along with free rides on the Outlaw Speedway’s Monster Truck, Outlaw Crusher at designated times throughout the evening.
