[July 21, 2011]  If you liked the racing action the last time the Super Late Models were in town for the UMP Summer Nationals Hell Tour, you won't want to miss Friday night's race, when the Northern Allstars Series will descend upon the Lincoln Speedway. The Super Late Models will be racing for $2,000 to win.

Brandon Sheppard from New Berlin took home the checkered flag when the Summer Nationals Tour made their stop at the Lincoln Speedway. Jason Feger from Bloomington set a new track record, which he also held.

A full show of racing will be in store for the fans' pleasure. The UMP Modifieds will compete for $600 to win. Last week Flyn' Brian Lynn, driving the 14 Cashless Racing, battled his way to victory lane against the 77, Guy Taylor. The 20-lap feature was a dueling battle till the finish, with the 77 challenging Flyn' Brian the whole race. Great racing and spectacular sportsmanship made it even better.

In the Pro Late Model class, Nick Bauman in the B1 captured another feature win last Friday night. Can he make it two in a row, or will Randy Meyers in the 18 charge to the finish?

The E-Mods put on a nail-biter of a feature as well. Mark Anderson narrowly edged out Todd Bates for the checkered flag. Terry Miller in the 0 car found his way to victory lane last Friday. With the taste of victory still fresh for Miller, Chuck Barnes and John Farris will need to be on top of their game in order to take the checkered flag this week.

Racing action will start at 6:30 with hot laps. If you missed the Super Late Models when they made their stop at the Lincoln Speedway in June, you won't want to miss them Friday. If you were one of the many people in the stands for that race, then you know how great the racing action will be!
