FAYETTEVILLE, GA - United Sprint Car Series officials have announced that the UMP Late Models and the UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds will join the winged outlaw sprint cars at Clarksville Speedway on May 30. The event will be a "Salute To The Armed Forces" and all active-duty Armed Forces personnel will receive a special discount to the event.

The event will also be a UMP points event for both the Late Models and the Open-Wheel Modifieds. USCS Founder and President Pete Walton is promoting this spectacular event, and is excited about having the UMP Late Models and UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds in action with his winged outlaw sprint cars.

"This should be a real treat for the fans at Clarksville Speedway because it is rare to see winged outlaw sprint cars, late models, and open-wheel modifieds all competing in the same show," Walton said. "Plus we will be saluting the American heroes from nearby Fort Campbell, KY, who have proudly served and protected our nation's freedom."

The USCS winged outlaw sprint cars are pound-for-pound the most powerful short track racing cars in the world. They weigh 1,300 pounds and are powered by 700 horsepower fuel-injected methanol-burning engines. They will be turning the fastest speeds ever recorded at Clarksville Speedway.

The UMP Late Models are the fastest full-bodied stock cars in the world, and even though they weigh 1,000 pounds more than the single-seat sprint cars, they also have 700 horsepower under the hood. The economical UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds are one of the most popular forms of race cars in the country, and have been a breeding ground for many of the nations top drivers.

Walton said payouts for the UMP Late Models and UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds will be announced in the next couple of days.
