CURT MICHAEL BEATS ALAIN BERGERON TO THE WIRE, POCKETS $4,000 FOR BULLY HILL NATIONALS SPRINT WIN AT BLACK ROCK SPEEDWAY

URC's Curt Michael played the waiting game and positioned himself to be in the right place at the right time to win the 35 lap Bully Hill Vineyards Sprint Car Nationals on Saturday night at the Black Rock Speedway. Michael of Ocean View, DE drove a flawless race, wheeling the Palladino owned sprint car to his sixth win of the season and his thirty-second career URC win. Michael took the lead on lap six then handed off the top spot to Alain Bergeron on lap fourteen. Michael then put the pressure on for the final five laps, regaining the lead on lap thirty-three. For the final two laps, Michael and Bergeron exchanged the lead several times with Michael holding the advantage at the drop of the checker flag. Michael won the race on URC's American Racer Tires.

A field of sixty-five sprint cars took part in the Bully Hill Vineyards Sprint Nationals with Alain Bergeron setting fast time in the Empire Super Sprint sponsored Time Trials. The Canadian Sprint Car Nationals sponsored heat race events which were won by Jessica Zemken, Josh Weller, Danny Massey, Brian Seidel and Dan Kaszubinski. The Mike Emhof Motorsports "D" Main saw Nick Bashford take the win as Rich Swathout won the Gates Electric Supply "C" Main. The winner of the Gater Racing News "B" Main was Justin Barger. Curt Michael was the winner of the six car Slocum Milk Hauling Dash for Cash.

A shower moved into the area just prior to the "B" Main, forcing a rain delay of over one hour. The track crew never gave up and brought back the racing surface so the show could be completed.

In the 35 lap sprint feature, pole sitter Chuck Hebing set the pace for the first five laps with Michael powering into the top spot on lap six. The first caution of the night came out on lap nine with Hebing came to a stop in turn three. On the restart, Michael was quickest into the first turn with Bergeron in second followed by Brook Weibley and Trevor Lewis.

On lap fourteen, Bergeron caught Michael to become the third different leader of the race. A caution on lap sixteen for Rob Dietrick slowed the field once again. On the restart, Bergeron ran to had from the rest of the field as Michael now had to contend with the challenges of Weibley and Lewis.

The final caution of the race was displayed on lap twenty-six for Bryan Howland who spun in turn two. The restart saw Bergeron slip away from the field at the drop of the green flag with Michael still fighting to stay ahead of Weibley and Lewis.

With five laps to go, Bergeron was approaching slower traffic and Michael was gaining on the leader. As Michael joined Bergeron in the race for the lead, Trevor Lewis an Brook Weibley were closing on the leaders as well. On lap thirty-three, Michael took the lead but Bergeron fought back to regain the top spot once again. With the white flag waiving, Michael took the lead for good as Trevor Lewis moved into the picture, but running short of time to challenge for the win. Lewis finished third as he was looking for his third consecutive Bully Hill National victory.

BULLY HILL VINEYARDS SPRINT FEATURE FINISH: Curt Michael, Alain Bergeron, Trevor Lewis, Brook Weibley, Dan Kaszubinski, Kevin Welsh, Brian Seidel, Blake Breen, Junior Martin, Danny Massey, Nick Fratto, Josh Weller, Justin Barger, Lance Yonge, Bryan Howland, Jessica Zemken, Davey Franek, Ed Aikin, Chris Muhleisen, Greg Coverdale, Jeff VanDusen, Steve Poirier, Rob Dietrick, Doug Emery, Scott Pursell, Jared Zimbardi, Jason Clauss, Chuck Hebing.

URC PLANS WINGLESS TEST & TUNE FRIDAY NIGHT, SEPTEMBER 15 AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

The fans have been asking for wingless sprint car racing and the United Racing Company is listening. URC, our nation's oldest traveling sprint car organization, will be offering their competitors a Wingless Test & Tune at the Bridgeport Speedway on Friday night, September 15. And yes, this Test & Tune session will take place on both the quarter mile and the five-eighth mile ovals at Bridgeport. Along with many race fans, numerous URC Owners and Drivers want the chance to remove the wings and go racing as well.

Over the past season, URC has been contacted by several track operators who are also asking for wingless sprint car. At the present time, URC is not booking any wingless shows for 2007, as it's a wait and see situation following the Bridgeport Wingless Test & Tune on September 15.

In the early years of URC, the organization was wingless, but later added the top and front wing to conform with the current day sprint cars. In the state of Indiana, sprint car racing is pretty much exclusively all wingless racing. The car counts are strong and the general feedback is, the cost of racing wingless is much more affordable. The reason being that there is less down force, extending the life of many of the high dollar car components such as the rear and motor. For the track operators, this also means less wear on their racing surface.

At this time, URC is not planning to transition 100% to wingless, but to compliment their already attractive schedule with some additional shows that would offer wingless sprint cars. Of course, this is all pending the outcome of the September 15 Wingless Test & Tune.

The last three wingless URC sprint events took place at the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. Billy Ellis was the winner on September 3, 2005, Jon Eldreth won a wingless show on August 20, 1996 and later that year, Rick Koenig was the winner on September 1.

It is said by many, that wingless sprint car racing will put the driver back into the race. It's not necessarily about the speed, but the feathering of the throttle, working this light weight high powered race car around any dirt track.

The Bridgeport Speedway URC Wingless Test & Tune is open only to URC members. Those wishing to compete, must register by calling URC at 302-422-1508 on or before September 14. It is critical that drivers pre-enter to best plan the number of warm-up sessions that will take place on September 15. For URC, the gates will open 6 PM, the show will being at 7 PM. The first warm-up session for the wingless URC sprints will be just after 8 PM. The URC wingless sprints will first practice on the five-eighth mile speedway, ending with practice on the quarter mile. URC race teams will park in the backstretch pits. URC drivers, owners and crew members will be required to pay the $25 pit fee upon entering the pit area.

Other then the rain outs of 2006, the United Racing Company has enjoyed a great season, delivering weekly events that pay $2,000 to the winner with minimum earnings of $200 just to start the 25 lap main events. Sixteen events were presented so far this year, with ten different feature winners. URC also delivered two big events, the Shot Drop Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway and the Jack Gunn Memorial which took place at the Selinsgrove Speedway. Both events had open invites to the Pennsylvania 358 Sprints, attracting more then fifty sprint cars at each event. URC developed rules that brought the 358 Sprints and URC Sprints to a near equal playing field, without any additional costs to the car owners.

URC will end their season on Friday, December 1st with the 59th Annual URC Awards Banquet, and reward their championship winning team with $10,000.

PAT CANNON POCKETS $4,000 IN URC SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS SPRINT NATIONALS FRIDAY AT WILLIAMS GROVE

Pat Cannon of Etters, PA was the best of fifty-one competitors on Friday night at the Williams Grove Speedway, winning the first annual SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Car Nationals. Cannon earned an impressive $4,000 in the 25 lap National events that ran off non-stop. The SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Nationals was the first race of its' kind ever in the state of Pennsylvania offering a total purse that exceeded $20,000. This national event was represented by thirty-one URC competitors, fourteen of the local 358 Sprints, two drivers from the USCS organization, two from ESS, one from the Patriots and one Central Pennsylvania 410 sprint car driver. A large crowd turned out for the event and Williams Grove Promoter Alan Kreitzer and URC Managing Members were already discussing plans for the 2007 edition of the 1-866-SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Car Nationals.

URC Rookie sensation Davey Sammons turned the Williams Grove Speedway in record time to earn the CnB Mushroom $200 cash award for setting fast time of 18.291 or 98.409 mph. Five qualifiers were necessary with victories in the Racing Electronics heat races going to Scott Pursell, Blane Heimbach, Justin Barger, Dave McGough and Brian Seidel. The Don Ott "C" Main was won by Midge Miller with the Wings Unlimited "B" Main victory going to Jon Eldreth.

A rain delay during the running of the heat races did slow the running of the show, but when it came to feature time, the twenty-five lap main event ran non-stop and without a hitch.

The field of twenty-five sprint cars took the green flag with Pat Cannon immediately taking the lead, followed by fourth place started Cory Haas. Kenny Adams of Malabar, FL ran third as pole sitter Kevin Welsh ran fourth on the first lap. Cannon quickly ran to hide from the rest of the field with Adams now in the runner-up spot. URC driver Bill Brian Jr advanced to fourth as he wanted to be in the mix for this victory.

Deep in the pack, all eyes were on the Palladino #99 driven by Ocean View, DE driver Curt Michael. This car was on mission to the front, racing in the top ten by the halfway point. At the cross flags, Cannon still had a commanding lead with Adams doing everything he could to keep the leader in sight. Haas followed in third with Bill Brian fourth and Kevin Welsh in fifth.

With five laps remaining, Cannon was now dealing with slower traffic and Kenny Adams was making up ground. Cannon, who at one point had a fifteen car length lead, now had Kenny Adams within five car lengths. With just two laps remaining, Adams went to the high side of the speedway and began to reel in the leader once again.

The white flag was waiving and Adams made a last ditch effort charging hard and wide into turn two. Down the backstretch for the final lap, Adams had a strong run and looked to the bottom groove as Cannon chose to go high with at least three lapped cars racing just ahead of the leaders. Cannon's choice was the right one as he flashed under the checker flag, quickly becoming $4,000 richer. Kenny Adams finished second with Cory Haas third, Brian Seidel fourth as Curt Michael delivered a very impressive fifth place finish. Bill Brian Jr., who ran in the top five the entire race, broke on the final lap to finish twelfth.

For Pat Cannon, this marked his fourth win of the season, previously winning 358 features at Williams Grove, Lincoln and Selinsgrove. In 2005, Cannon was the Silver Spring Super Sportsman track and tour champion.

DON OTT "C" Main Finish: Midge Miller, Mares Stellfox, Bryan Gohn, Timmy long, Danny Dietrich, Davey Franek, Aaron Long, Will Urkuski, Jamie Bodo, Robbie Stillwaggon, Junior Martin.

SHOT DROP NATIONALS FRIDAY AT THE GROVE,
HESSTON WILL BE DARK SATURDAY, URC EVENT CANCELLED

The URC Sprints will open their weekend on Friday night with the 1-866-SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Nationals at the Williams Grove Speedway. The following night, the URC Sprint Series were to make their inaugural visit to the Hesston Speedway, in Huntington, PA.

Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series Continues. . . .
CURT MICHAEL MAKES LAST LAP PASS FOR FIFTH URC WIN OF 2006 SATURDAY AT DELAWARE INTERNATIONAL


DELMAR, DE . . . . Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE brought the crowd to their feet with a last lap pass, taking the lead from Brook Weibley to pocket the $2,000 first place money for his fifth win of the season and thirty-first career URC victory on Saturday night at the Delaware International Speedway. Michael and his Palladino sprinter, played a game of patience, moving into second on lap five then waiting until the final lap to make the winning pass. Weibley, the race leader for the first twenty-four laps, showed signs of a wearing tire that eventually went flat during post race inspection.

This event, sponsored by Taylor & Messick attracted a field of thirty-one sprint cars. LikeWise Construction posted a $100 cash bonus to each heat race winner with victories going to Josh Weller, Brook Weibley and rookie sensation Davey Sammons. The twelve lap "B" Main saw Bill Brian Jr. take the victory.

In the twenty-five lap URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts sprint car feature, Brook Weibley gunned into the lead but the caution was displayed immediately for Davey Sammons who came to a stop in turn two. The field re-grouped and when green flag racing resumed, Weibley again set the pace with Josh Weller in second and Curt Michael third. As the field completed lap one, a wild crash took place in turn four that involved numerous cars including Bill Brian Jr and Midge Miller who both flipped. Other involved cars were Johnny Zimmerman, Mike Haggenbottom, Kevin Welsh and Ed Aikin.

On the restart, Weibley again took command with Weller and Michael in the chase. On lap five, Michael moved into second and went to work chasing down the leader. Also on a charge was Kramer Williamson who was racing in third on lap eight.

At the halfway point, Weibley still had a comfortable lead with Michael and Williamson in the hunt followed by Josh Weller and Junior Martin driving the Bar's Leaks sponsored sprint car.

Just past halfway, it became noticeable that Michael was gaining on the race leader. Weibley now had to deal with lapped traffic and for the most part, he was slicing his way through traffic. With five laps remaining, Michael was now within striking distance for the lead.

With two laps to go, Michael lost ground exiting turn two and Weibley gained about a five car length lead. Michael never gave up quickly reeled back in the leader. With the white flag waiving, Weibley covered the inside lane opening the door Michael to use the outside lane. And he did. Michael firmly planted his sprint car in turn one and used the outside lane to pull along side of Weibley. Exiting turn two, Michael powered the Palladino #99 into the lead then negotiated turns three and four to take the win.

Michael took the win in fan pleasing fashion over Brook Weibley, Kramer Williamson, Josh Weller and Junior Martin. The LikeWise Fast Time of the Night Award went to Kramer Williamson as Dave Ely claimed the Hard Charger Award.

During the running of the first heat race, Scott Pursell took a violent flip in turn one and fortunately, did walk away uninjured. On Friday night, Scott Pursell visited the Georgetown Speedway to offer the race fans a look at what was to come when URC returns to Georgetown Speedway on Friday night, September 1.

FEATURE FINISH: Curt Michael, Brook Weibley, Kramer Williamson, Josh Weller, Junior Martin, Greg Coverdale, Dave Ely, Danny Massey, Mark Bitner, Brian Seidel, Jimmy Stitzel, Dave McGough, Mike Kostic, Robbie Stillwaggon, Scott McClaren, Joe Zuczek, Jason Clauss, Davey Sammons, Justin Collett, Ed Aikin, Kevin Welsh, Mike Haggenbottom, Johnny Zimmerman, Midge Miller, Bill Brian Jr., DNQ- -Mares Stellfox, Randy West, Gary Gollub, Brian Brittingham, Tim Hogue, Scott Pursell.

1-866-SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS SPRINT NATIONALS AT WILLIAMS GROVE FRIDAY, AUGUST 25

The much anticipated 1-866-SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Nationals will invade the Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night, August 25. This event was originally to take place on Friday, June 9th, but a late day thunderstorm cancelled the first ever National 360 sprint event at the Grove. While others have talked about bringing this type of prestigious race to Pennsylvania, it was URC (United Racing Company) that delivered the goods, a 25 lap, $4,000 to win event that offers a hefty payoff from top to bottom. For example, a fifth place finish is worth $1,125 with tenth playing $1,000 along with $300 being offered just to be one of the twenty-four starters in the SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Nationals.

A talented field of more then fifty cars are expected to invade the historic Williams Grove Speedway and the roster includes Kenny Adams, Nate Snyder, Kevin Nouse, Cory Haas and Terry Gray of Memphis, TN just to name a few. From the URC Sprint Series ranks, count on Curt Michael, Greg Coverdale, Kevin Welsh, Brian Seidel, Bill Brian Jr. and Kramer Williamson to add some excitement to the 360 Nationals. URC Rookie standouts Davey Sammons (6th on Saturday night at New Egypt) and Robbie Stillwaggon are both pre-entered for this National event.

Time trials will open this racing program that has a scheduled starting time of 7 PM. Heat race events, along with a "C" and "B" Main will be the qualifying process used to determine the field of twenty-four cars that will start the 25 lap SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS Sprint Nationals.

URC Engine rules will apply for the 360 Sprints. For the 358 Sprints, they must meet the weekly Williams Grove engine rules. All other car specs, including the left and right rear tires must meet URC rules. A maximum 2" wickerbill is allowed. The top wing is the only allowable cockpit adjustable device.

In conjunction with the Selinsgrove Speedway, URC co-sanctioned the very successful Jack Gunn Memorial on Saturday, May 27. The event offered a $3,000 to win challenge between the weekly 358 Selinsgrove sprints and the URC Sprints. Fifty-five cars turned out for the show that saw Blane Heimbach wheel his 358 sprint to victory. Selinsgrove Promoter Charlie Paige and URC's Managing Members developed the format, rules and payoff that delivered a well run and well received event. This show is viewed as still another first for URC, accomplishing the successful blending of the 358 and URC Sprints. All this was done without the added costs of changing heads or limiting and restricting the rules for either class of sprint cars.

The URC Sprint Series, now in their fifty-ninth season, continue to lead the country and set the standard for 360 sprint car racing today. The weekly regular events for URC pay $2,000 to the winner with a minimum of $200 to take the green flag. URC offers an attractive and well distributed point fund that will pay their 2006 champion a whopping $10,000 in cold, hard cash! No promises, no certificates or vouchers, just CASH.

Just last weekend, female racer Mares Stellfox pocketed a $3,000 bundle of cash for winning the Bar's Leaks Charge from the "B" Main Award. Stellfox ran the consolation, started nineteenth in the main event and came home the feature winner to earn the bonus. In total, for her night of work at Penn Can Speedway, Mares Stellfox earned in excess of $4,400. Junior Martin of Felton, DE, one of the "young guns" on the URC trail, received the $10,000 Bar's Leaks Team sponsorship for the 2006 season. So what does all this mean? URC delivers!

So far this season, the URC Sprint Series has delivered an average car count of 33 and the turn out at Williams Grove for the SHOT DROP/BAR'S LEAKS NATIONALS should easily exceed fifty cars.

Fred's Trailer Parts New Series Continues. . . . .
GREG COVERDALE EARNS FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON & 50TH URC CAREER WIN AT NEW EGYPT SATURDAY

Former URC Champion Greg Coverdale of Milford, DE took the lead from Brian Seidel with just five laps remaining then went on to win the 25 lap URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series feature event Saturday night at the New Egypt Speedway. Driving the Mike Bostic owned sprinter, this victory also marked the fiftieth career win for Coverdale with the United Racing Company.

A field of thirty-four cars turned out for the Fred's Trailer Parts New Series with heat race victories going to Greg Coverdale, Joe Zuczek, Brooke Bowman and Mike Haggenbottom as Brook Weibley took the win in the twelve lap "B" Main.

In the twenty-five lap URC feature, Brooke Bowman took the lead at the drop of the green flag with Brian Seidel in the chase and racing in second on lap three. Prior to the completion of lap four, the first yellow flag was displayed for current point leader Curt Michael, who came to a stop in turn four. Michael was towed to the pits and did return to action, but he was one lap down.

When green flag racing resumed, Bowman was the pace setter with Seidel in the chase. One lap later, and Seidel was the new race leader. Seidel, Bowman Mike Haggenbottom, Mark Bitner and Greg Coverdale were in the chase for the top five positions.

A wild crash on lap thirteen collected Brook Bowman and Mike Haggenbottom as the two tangled and crashed hard into the first turn wall. Both drivers walked away uninjured. One lap later, Junior Martin tagged the second turn wall and flipped. On the restart, Bill Brian bounced off the fourth turn guardrail, taking a slow roll to display the red flag once again.

With the green flag waiving, Brian Seidel went back to work, leading the field of URC sprint cars. Greg Coverdale was now racing in the runner-up spot and in a tight battle with Mark Bitner. Coverdale now began to reel in Seidel and with five laps to go, it was a two car race for the lead. Just one lap later, Coverdale went into the lead with Seidel second and Bitner in a solid third place. With two laps to go, Bitner moved into second with Seidel still fighting for the runner-up spot.

On the final lap, Coverdale was the first to the checker flag with Seidel beating out Bitner for second as Jason Clauss followed in fourth and Kevin Welsh fifth. Also turning in a fine ride was rookie driver Davey Sammons who finished sixth.

The Hard Charger of the night award went to Kevin Welsh as Greg Coverdale earned the LikeWise Construction Fast Time of the Night cash bonus.

URC TWIN 20'S THRILL PENN CAN FANS ON VALLEY FORGE INC NIGHT. . . . . .
MARES STELLFOX GOES FROM NINETEENTH TO FIRST TO WIN THE OPENER. ..
SCOTT PURSELL HOLDS OFF BILL BRIAN TO WIN THE NIGHT CAP

The URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series made a popular showing with their Twin 20's program Friday night at the Penn Can Speedway, and the fans loved it. Passing galore was the theme of the night, sponsored by Valley Forge INC and it was female racer Mares Stellfox who turned the field inside out. Stellfox of Prospect Park, PA started in the nineteenth position and on a slow but steady mission, worked her way to the front of the pack. On the final lap, charging off of turn four, Stellfox took the lead from Junior Martin to score her second career win with URC. In the Twin 20's night cap, Scott Pursell of Frenchtown, NJ had the field cover to win his second URC feature of the season and his fifth career win. Pursell, a very colorful driver and individual added excitement to victory lane by climbing the homestretch fence which stirred the crowd even more.

The Twin 20's format at Penn Can really happened by accident. URC was at Penn Can on Friday night, May 26 and after the qualifying was complete, the rain moved in, canceling the balance of the show. At that time, Penn Can track Promoter Reed Miller met with URC Managing Members to discuss options for the return visit. The Twin 20's format was suggested, discussed and decided upon and was scheduled for Friday night, June 23rd. Unfortunately, rain again washed out the program and the final chance of running this event was then set for Friday night, August 11. It was a long wait, but the show was well worth the time and anticipation and left the Penn Can crowd wanting more.

In the opening 20 lap feature, Brook Weibley set the pace for the first lap with Gary Gollub and rookie contender Davey Sammons in the mix. Charging from fourth on lap two, Junior Martin and his Bar's Leaks sponsored sprint car charged into the lead. Weibley followed in second until lap six when Sammons moved into the runner-up spot. Also on a charge was Bill Brian Jr, racing in third on lap eight.

At the halfway point of the race, Martin was in solid command although slower traffic was just ahead. Sammons, driving a sensational race remained in second followed by Bill Brian Jr., Mares Stellfox (who started 19th) as Brook Weibley rounded out the top five.

With five laps remaining, Sammons was closing in on Martin with Brian and Stellfox within striking distance as well. Davey Franek, in his first ever URC start was the newly assigned driver of the Guy Howie owned sprinter. Franek was up to fifth after starting twenty-first.

Sammons caught Martin with just two laps to go and the rookie driver was looking for the lane to make the pace. After taking the white flag, Sammons made a move for the lead going into turn one only to spin, causing the display of the yellow flag.

On the restart, Stellfox was now seated in the runner-up spot and had a good run at Martin when the green flag fell. Charging out of turn four with the run to the checker flag, Stellfox stayed on the bottom lane to pass Martin for the win. For Mares Stellfox, it was her second career win with URC, previously winning back in 1993. Martin scored his second runner-up finish of the season with Davey Franek turning all heads to finish third, just ahead of Bill Brian Jr. and current URC point leader Curt Michael.

The second half of the URC Twin 20's was equally exciting. Ed Aikin set the pace for the first lap with Scott Pursell taking the lead on lap two. Brook Weibley moved into second on lap three with Bill Brian Jr., Mark Bitner and Davey Franek making up the top five.

The top five continued to race under a blanket with positions juggling through every turn. Bill Brian moved into second with Mark Bitner racing in third on lap eight. At the halfway point of the race, Pursell was in charge with Bitner second as Brian, Franek and Weibley followed in the top five. Racing in sixth, was current point leader Curt Michael.

The battle for second continued with Bill Brian moving back into the runner-up spot dropping Bitner to third. On lap sixteen, the caution flag was displayed for Mares Stellfox who spun while entering turn three.

On the restart, Pursell was on his game and established a solid lead over Bill Brian. With two laps to go, Bitner passed Brian for second and made every attempt to reel in the leader. Bitner ran short of time as Pursell flashed under the checker flag to score his second URC win of the season and his fifth career win. Bitner finished second followed by Bill Brian Jr., Davey Franek and Brook Weibley.

Bill Brian was the winner of the four lap CASH DASH. Mares Stellfox won the Hard Charge Award in the first twenty lap feature as Brian Seidel was the Hard Charger in the second feature.

FEATURE FINISH 1st 20- - Mares Stellfox, Junior Martin, Davey Franek, Bill Brian Jr., Curt Michael, Kevin Welsh, Brook Weibley, Ed Aikin, Scott Pursell, Jamie Bodo, Mark Bitner, Brooke Bowman, Gary Gollub, Davey Sammons, Mike Haggenbottom, Greg Coverdale, Johnny Zimmerman, Danny Massey, Robbie Stillwaggon, Jimmy Stitzel, Brian Seidel, Jason Clauss, Kramer Williamson.

In the feature event, Sammons also went on to deliver a solid ninth place feature finish. The CnB Mushroom "B" paid $100 to the winner Midge Miller.

In the twenty-five lap feature event, Curt Michael started on the pole and stayed in control most of the race. Rookie driver Davey Sammons moved into second on lap three with good company following as

The first caution flag was displayed on lap four when Jason Clauss came to a stop. On the restart, Michael ran to hide from the field with Sammons running a solid second followed by Dave Ely, Greg Coverdale and Jimmy Stitzel.

On lap ten the yellow flag was displayed again, this time for Scott Pursell who slowed and made every attempt to exit the speedway. The restart saw Michael continue his easy ride but now Dave Ely was in the runner-up spot followed by Coverdale and Stitzel.

By lap sixteen, the leader was in lapped traffic and runner-up Greg Coverdale was on a charge. Coverdale was now on the rear bumper of Michael on lap eighteen when the yellow was displayed for Midge Miller who stopped on the backstretch.

With a clear race track ahead, Michael again bolted away from the rest of the field at the drop of the green flag. For the final seven lap, Michael was not to be challenged and he went on for the victory followed by Coverdale, Ely, Stitzel and Mark Bitner.

RAIN STOPS URC RETURN TO SELINSGROVE SPEEDWAY. . .
URC PLANS VISIT TO BRIDGEPORT ON SATURDAY, JULY 29

Mother Nature has not been kind to short track racing in 2006 and once again rain has forced the cancellation of the Saturday night URC event, this time at the Selinsgrove Speedway. The URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series was scheduled to be at the Selinsgrove Speedway tonight, however, heavy rain in the morning and a forecast of more bad weather throughout the day, forced the cancellation of the racing program. Needless to say, Selinsgrove Promoter Charlie Paige was disappointed when he informed URC of the cancellation.

URC was at Selinsgrove Speedway on May 27th for the wildly successful Jack Gunn Memorial that saw the URC Sprints and the 358 Sprints compete in a combined event that drew over fifty-five sprint cars and paid $3,000 to the winner. Blane Heimbach, driving a 358 sprint car won that event.

For the URC Sprints, their next event is now set for the Bridgeport Speedway in Bridgeport, NJ on Saturday night, July 29. Along with this event being a point race for the season long Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Series, the Bridgeport show will also be a point race for the Fred's Trailer Parts New Series, a mini-point series within URC.

Kramer Williamson now leads the season long URC point chase as Kevin Welsh leads the Fred's Trailer Parts New Series point battle.

Fred's Trailer Parts New Series Rolls into New Egypt. . . . .
GARY GOLLUB RETURNS TO URC VICTORY LANE FOR 20TH CAREER WIN SATURDAY NIGHT

New Egypt, NJ . . . . . It was a great night for veteran driver Gary Gollub after winning the URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series feature event Saturday night at the New Egypt Speedway. Gollub, a former two time URC Champion (1975-1976) last won a URC feature in 2002 at the Bridgeport Speedway. For Gollub of Mohnton, PA, the Saturday night win at New Egypt Speedway marked his twentieth career URC victory and the first career win for car owner Bruce Engler. Also enjoying a success story for the night was Junior Martin of Felton, DE who delivered a strong second place finish driving the Bar's Leaks sponsored sprint car.

A field of thirty-three URC sprint cars turned out for the third race of the Fred's Trailer Parts New Series with heat race victories going to Gary Gollub, Junior Martin and Jamie Bodo. Three time URC Champion and current point leader Curt Michael won the twelve lap "B" Main.

The twenty-five lap URC feature got off to a wild start with at eight car crash as the field took the green flag. Former Champions Bill Brian Jr and Greg Coverdale flipped down the homestretch and collected the cars of Randy West, Dave Betts, Davey Sammons, Brian Seidel, Curt Michael and Robbie Stillwaggon. All drivers walked away uninjured. Coverdale, one of the flip victims was able to restart the future event.

On the restart, Todd Rittenhouse and Jimmy Stitzel tangled in turn three and the caution was displayed once again. The third time was the charm and Gary Gollub immediately took command of the race at the drop of the green flag. Jamie Bodo was in an early chase with Junior Martin just two car lengths off the pace.

The feature event ran non-stop after the lap caution flag and Gollub took advantage, running to hide from the rest of the field. At the halfway point, Gollub remained the leader with Bodo second, Martin third, Mares Stellfox fourth and Brook Weibley fifth.

On lap seventeen, the Bar's Leaks #17 sprinter charged into second with Martin setting his sights on the leader Gary Gollub. With five laps to go, Martin had reeled in the leader, bringing with him, Bodo, Stellfox and Weibley. URC now had five cars in contention for the win with five laps still on the lap counter.

Charging off of turn four, Martin made his strongest challenge for the lead on laps twenty-one. Martin came up short of the lead and Gary Gollub got the message that it was time to step up the pace. Gollub responded with a burst of energy and did open some distance between himself and second place challenger Junior Martin.

With the checker flag waiving, Gollub took the win that was worth $2,000 over Junior Martin (his career best finish), Mares Stellfox was third with Brook Weibley fourth and Jamie Bodo finishing fifth..

FEATURE FINISH: Gary Gollub, Junior Martin, Mare Stellfox, Brook Weibley, Jamie Bodo, Kevin Welsh, Dave Ely, Tim Hogue, Kramer Williamson, Brooke Bowman, Mark Bitner, Sean Michael, Greg Coverdale, Ed Aikin, Jon Eldreth, Robbie Stillwaggon, Todd Rittenhouse, Randy West, Midge Miller, Jimmy Stitzel, Brian Seidel, Davey Sammons, Dave Betts, Brian Seidel, Sean Michael.

CURT MICHAEL OUT-DUALS BROOK WEIBLEY TO SWEEP NORTH/SOUTH SHOOT OUT SATURDAY NIGHT AT I-20 SPEEDWAY

BATESBURG, S.C. . . . . . Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE made a clean sweep of the URC/USCS North/South Shoot Out by winning the thirty lap sprint car feature event Saturday night at the I-20 Speedway. The win was worth $2,700 (including a $200 cash bonus posted by CnB Mushrooms) and pairs up nicely with his Friday night win at the Riverside Speedway. Although Michael started on the pole in the feature event, Brook Weibley made for an interesting finish, taking the lead on lap twenty from Michael. Just two laps from the checker, Michael regained the top spot and held off the repeated challenges from Weibley to score his third win of the season and twenty-ninth career URC win.

The three heat races events were won by Curt Michael, Kramer Williamson and Brook Weibley as Curt Michael scored the win in the Lucas Oil Power Dash.

In the thirty lap feature, Curt Michael set the pace for the first lap. The yellow flag was displayed on lap two when Matt Linder stopped in turn two. On the restart, Curt Michael resumed the lead with Kramer Williamson second and Brook Weibley third.

On lap ten, steering problems brought the Kramer Williamson sprinter to a stop in turn two, ending his hopes of a feature win at I-20 Speedway. When racing resumed, Michael remained the pace setter with Weibley second and a fast closing Danny Martin Jr. in third.

A fine ride for Martin came to an end on lap twelve when mechanical problems sent him to the pit area. Now moving into the picture was Steve Darvalics who took the third position on lap twelve.

As the field passed for the halfway sign, Michael was the leader with Weibley a close second, Darvalics third, Marshall Skinner fourth and Sean Michael now in fifth.

The race for the lead brought the fans to their feet as Weibley took the top spot on lap twenty. Weibley ran to hide, but a determined Curt Michael, quickly regained the lost ground and was back in the battle for the top spot. With five laps to go, both cars were racing under a blanket, swapping the lead with each turn.

With just two laps remaining, Michael used the inside groove to take the lead. For the final two circuits, Michael used his super fast Kathy Palladino sprint car and lapped traffic to hold Weibley in the second spot. With the checker flag waiving, Michael dashed under the checker flag with a one car length margin of victory over Weibley. Following in the top five were Marshall Skinner, Sean Michael and Steve Darvalics.

FINISH: Curt Michael, Brook Weibley, Marshall Skinner, Sean Michael, Steve Darvalics, Robbie Stillwaggon, Terry Gray, Scott Pursell, T.J. Winegardner, Mares Stellfox, Dave Betts, R.J. Johnson, Danny Martin Jr., Brooke Bowman, Doug Day, Matt Tiffany, Josh Weller, Matt Linder, Tom Winegardner Sr.

KEVIN WELSH SCORES FIRST URC WIN OF 2006 SATURDAY AT DELAWARE INTERNATIONAL

Kevin Welsh of Far Hills, NJ had his MOPAR powered sprint car running to perfection as he captured $2,000 for winning the 25 lap URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series event on Saturday night at the Delaware International Speedway. This marked the seventh URC event of the season and the second race on the Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series. Although Welsh started on the pole, it was a hard fought battle as Brook Weibley made at least ten attempts to take the victory. With just one lap remaining, a faulty stem valve on the rear tire let loose, with Weibley spinning and displaying the caution flag. For Welsh, the win marked his first of the season and twelfth career URC Victory.

The CnB Mushroom heat race events were won by Kevin Welsh and Jon Eldreth as Johnny Zimmerman scored his first career URC heat race victory. In the 12 lap "B" Main, former Champion Dave Ely was the winner. CnB Mushroom's posted $50 in cash for all the qualifying event winners.

In the 25 lap Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts 25 lap feature event, Kevin Welsh jumped to the early lead with Brook Weibley immediately in the chase. Defending point champion and current point leader Curt Michael followed in third with Jon Eldreth and Greg Coverdale making up the top five.

The first caution of the feature was displayed for Johnny Zimmerman who stopped on the backstretch and Will Urkuski who stopped in turn four. On the restart, fourth place runner Jon Eldreth spun in turn two.

With green flag racing again underway, Welsh retained the lead with Weibley trying every groove to make the pass. The yellow was displayed again, this time for Jon Eldreth who spun in turn three. The green flag fell and the Welsh/Weibley battle resumed immediately. By lap ten, Welsh and Weibley were side-by-side in the turns with Welsh edging into the lead on straight-aways.

At the halfway point, Welsh and Weibley were a race of their own with Curt Michael third, Greg Coverdale fourth and Mark Bitner fifth. On lap seventeen, it became obvious that Welsh was winning the battle as he established a five car length lead. And now, Curt Michael was reeling in Weibley.

With just five laps to go, Welsh had a solid lead and Weibley was trying to hold off a determined Curt Michael. With the white flag waiving, Michael bolted under Weibley and moved into second. On the final lap, between turns one and two, Weibley spun displaying the final caution flag of the night.

The last lap shootout had Curt Michael looking for the rear bumper of Kevin Welsh. With two lapped cars between the leader and Curt, a strong restart was necessary if Curt Michael had a shot at the win.

Welsh had a strong start and quickly ran to hide from the rest of the field, dashing under the checker flag as the race winner. Finishing second was Curt Michael with Greg Coverdale third as Randy West and Kramer Williamson made up the top five.

RAIN STOPS URC AT PENN CAN FRIDAY, IT'S OFF TO NEW EGYPT TONIGHT!

The URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprints were scheduled to compete in the much talked about Twin 20's feature format on Friday night at the Penn Can Speedway. However, Mother Nature had different thoughts, drenching the Susquehanna, PA Speedway, forcing the event to be cancelled. Both Penn Can Management and the Managing Members of URC are determined to get this show in the books, so URC will make one more attempt, planning a return visit on Friday night, August 11. The format will remain the same to include Twin 20 lap features plus a Dash for Cash. Race time is set for 7:15 PM.

Tonight, Saturday, June 24 the URC Sprints will be in action at the New Egypt Speedway in New Egypt, NJ. This event will be the seventh show of the 2006 URC season and our second visit to New Egypt Speedway this season. Brian Seidel was the winner of the first New Egypt event back on April 29.

CURT MICHAEL EYES URC THREE RACE SWEEP THIS WEEKEND

The United Racing Company sprint cars have a busy weekend planned with three feature events scheduled in two days. The three race sweep could be worth a minimum of $4,500 and defending URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Champion Curt Michael is hoping for a hat trick. The URC sprints will be in action at the Penn Can Speedway in Susquehanna, PA on Friday night to compete in a pair of Twin 20's feature events. URC will then storm the New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night for a complete program of qualifying all leading up to the 25 lap, $2,000 to win main event.

Michael of Ocean View, DE is a former three time URC Champion, winning the title the past two consecutive season. Six races into the 2006 season, Curt Michael and the Palladino Race Team lead the current chase for the championship, worth $10,000 this year.

"The competition in URC is tough, but we have the equipment to win", commented the thirty-four year old URC favorite. A three race sweep would certainly place the Michael/Palladino Team in a comfortable place as they chase the $10,000 championship. But it's just not that easy in URC.

The point battle is still very close with the top five drivers being within one-hundred points of the point lead. Kramer Williamson, Bill Brian Jr., Greg Coverdale and Brian Seidel are well within striking distance of Michael.

In six events this season, URC has delivered five different feature winners with Brian Seidel being the only repeat winner this season. Other winners include Brook Weibley, Curt Michael, Scott Pursell and Blane Heimbach.

The following weekend, Saturday, July 1, the URC Sprints will return to the Delaware International Speedway for the second race of the Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series.

SCOTT PURSELL'S DREAM COMES TRUE WITH URC WIN SATURDAY AT LINCOLN

"This is a dream come true" shouted a thrilled Scott Pursell as he stood in the Lincoln Speedway victory lane after winning the 25 lap Valley Forge INC URC sprint car feature on Saturday night. The forty-three year old from Frenchtown, NJ was thrilled to say least, leading most of the twenty-five laps. Pursell, who started on the pole was challenged most of the race by former URC Champion Dave Ely. Although Pursell was credited with leading all twenty-five laps, Ely did manage to nose ahead of Pursell on a lap fourteen restart. Pursell was up to the challenged and regained the lead before completing the next lap.

The Lincoln Speedway visit marked the sixth event of the Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts URC Sprint Series of 2006. A field of thirty-two sprint cars took part in the race program with the C&B Mushroom heat victories going to Scott Pursell, Dave Ely and Josh Weller as Jason Clauss was the winner of the "B" Main.

In the twenty-five lap URC feature Scott Pursell and Dave Ely brought the field down for the green flag but before the first lap was completed, the yellow was displayed for Gary Gollub and Davey Sammons who tangled in turn one. The next restart was good and Pursell beat Ely to turn one. Pursell maintained a solid hold on the top spot as Ely, Josh Weller and Randy West followed.

On lap ten, the second caution was displayed, this time for Davey Sammons after he spun on the backstretch. With the green flag waiving for the restart, Lucas Wolfe (driving the John Pinter owned URC sprint car) along with Junior Martin and Will Urkuski tangled and came to a stop in turn two.

The next restart was the charm as Pursell once gain ran off to a commanding lead. Ely, Weller, West and now Todd Rittenhouse made-up the top five. The final caution of the feature took place on lap fourteen when Brook Weibley came to a stop in turn two.

Pursell had the advantage at the drop of the green but Ely squeezed by Pursell to take the lead, just for a moment. Pursell found some extra power, returned to the low groove and returned the front of the pack. Randy West took advantage of the two car battle for the lead and moved into second on lap fifteen. West tried to reel in the leader and was making up ground on Pursell.

With five laps remaining, Pursell was on point with West second, Ely third Weller fourth and Todd Rittenhouse fifth. With just two laps to go, West took to outside lane to make a last ditch run at the win. In the meantime, Ely was still working the low groove and passed West for second.

As the checker flag fell, Pursell was far ahead and all alone in scoring his first win the season and fourth career URC win. Dave Ely collected the money for second with Randy West third, Josh Weller fourth and Bill Brian Jr in fifth.

FEATURE FINISH: Scott Pursell, Dave Ely, Randy West, Josh Weller, Bill Brian Jr., Todd Rittenhouse, Kramer Williamson, Ed Aikin, Greg Coverdale, Mark Bitner, Jason Clauss, Curt Michael, Jon Eldreth, Brian Seidel, Davey Sammons, Danny Massey, Mike Kostic, Brian Brittingham, Dave McGough, Johnny Zimmerman, Brook Weibley, Will Urkuski, Lucas Wolfe, Gary Gollub.

In the Valley Forge INC URC sprint feature, Brian Seidel took the lead at the drop of the green flag with Curt Michael following in second. In just a few laps, Seidel had managed to build a comfortable lead over runner-up Curt Michael and Brooke Bowman. On lap five, Johnny Zimmerman spun in turn three displaying the first caution of the race.

On the restart, Michael had another chance to challenge Seidel for the lead but once again, Seidel was the quickest. On lap six, the second caution was displayed, this time for Jason Clauss who stopped on the homestretch. The field restarted once again with Seidel leading for lap seven when Mike Haggenbottom and Davey Sammons tangled in turn two.

Green flag racing resumed with Seidel the unchallenged race leader over Curt Michael, Brooke Bowman, Chris Coyle and Ed Aikin. After a long string of green flag racing, Seidel again established a comfortable lead as Michael followed with a solid second. Lap after lap, Chris Coyle and Brooke Bowman ran side-by-side battling for the third spot in what very well was the best race of the night.

With five laps remaining, Seidel was now racing with lapped cars as Michael was closing quickly. By lap twenty-one, Michael was now in a position to offer his first challenge for the lead. On lap twenty-two, just three laps shy of the checker flag, Brooke Bowman made contact with the homestretch wall, violently flipping in turn one and displaying the red flag. Bowman was racing in a solid third place at the time and did walk away from the accident uninjured.

Three laps remained in the main event and now Curt Michael had to offer the first big challenge for lead. With a clear track ahead, Seidel was not to be challenged and Michael used every remaining lap to find the right groove to catch Seidel.

TWIN 20'S JOIN URC SCHEDULE FOR RETURN VISIT TO PENN CAN ON JUNE 23rd

The URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series will be making a return visit to the Penn Can Speedway to make-up the rain out that took place on Friday night, May 26. After battling bad weather most of the day, Penn Can Management made repeated efforts to beat out Mother Nature, but it just didn't work. From URC's perspective, we've never seen a track promoter try so hard to complete this show. Following the three URC heat races, the rain began to fall once again. The track crew then worked on the speedway and the call was made for the URC Sprints to return to the track for their feature event. Prior to the green flag, another wave of showers drenched the speedway, forcing the cancellation of the show. The URC Sprints will now return to "The CAN" on Friday night, June 23rd and offer a Twin 20's feature only format.

URC Managing Members and Penn Can Management discussed numerous options and dates for the make-up event. Both feel the outcome of the Twin 20's format is one that will be exciting and entertaining for the race fans and a good payday for the URC competitors. Along with the URC Twin 20's format, a special Cash Dash will be added. In a way to say "thank you" to the race fans, URC will do a T-Shirt giveaway, offering as many as one-hundred FREE t-shirts.

In years past, URC offered the Twin 20's format to promoters but the novelty idea of such an event did wear out over time. The Friday night, June 23rd URC show at the CAN may be the right timing to bring such an event back into the URC fold.

So pencil this show on your schedule, the URC Twin 20's at Penn Can Speedway on Friday night, June 23rd.

HOMETOWN FAVORITE BLANE HEIMBACH BEATS THE URC CHALLENGE, POCKETS $3,000 IN JACK GUNN MEMORIAL VICTORY AT SELINSGROVE

Blane Heimbach of Selinsgrove, PA had the home track advantage and went on to win the 358/URC Sprint Challenge Jack Gunn Memorial Saturday night at the Selinsgrove Speedway. Heimbach, a former champion at Selinsgrove Speedway earned a hefty $3,000 for the win in the thirty lap Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts main event. In victory lane, the likeable Heimbach was quick to thank car owner Jeff Creasy for an excellent car and track Promoter Charlie Paige for putting on this special event. The idea of this event was to bring together the weekly 358 Selinsgrove sprints and the popular traveling URC sprints. The show was a big success.

A field of fifty-five sprint cars took time with the C&B Mushroom Fast Time bonus going to Greg Coverdale with a time of 18.213 at a speed of 104.681 mph. The five heat race events were won by Kyle Purks, Nate Snyder, Phil Walter, Scott Flammer and Jason Clauss. The "C" Main winner was Brian Normhold as Kevin Nouse won the "B" Main.

The car specification rules were designed to have little to no additional costs to run this event and at the same time, have both groups competing on a level playing field. In the C&B Mushroom time trials, it appeared that URC just might dominate the night as they controlled eight of the top ten fast times including URC Rookie driver Davey Sammons who qualified tenth.

The controlled appeared to shift in heat race qualifying as the 358 sprints won three of the five heat race events. In the feature, a field of twenty-five sprints answered the call with fourteen URC sprints and eleven 358 sprints made-up the line-up.

At the drop of the green flag, Brook Weibley was the early race leader, trying to shake off runner-up Kramer Williamson. Out of nowhere came Blane Heimbach, already racing in third after passing URC defending champion Curt Michael.

Heimbach was second on lap five and now he had his sights set on Weibley who had a big lead. Heimbach quickly began to trim down the lead and set his challenge for the top spot. After a dogfight battle, Heimbach took the lead on lap fifteen and ran to hide from the rest of the field.

At the halfway point, Heimbach was on top followed by Weibley, Kramer Williamson, Curt Michael and Jason Clauss. In the second half of the race, all eyes were on Curt Michael who had the Palladino sprint car on a charge. Michael slipped by Williamson for the third place on lap seventeen as he set his sights on Weibley.

A flawless ride for Brook Weibley came to an end on lap twenty-three when a flat tire brought his sprint car to a stop on the homestretch. The yellow flag now played into the hands of Curt Michael as the race leader was now in his sights.

With the green flag waiving, Michael went to work to pass the lapped traffic and to take a run at the leader. As the leaders passed with just five laps remaining, Michael was all over Heimbach, looking for the fast lane to challenge for the lead.

Using the far outside groove then dropping down to the inside guardrail, Michael tried every stop to take the lead. With just two laps remaining, we reached the turning point of the race. As the leaders entered turn one, the Michael sprint car bobbled, then slowed and came to a halt. The hopes of a win for Curt Michael were now over as engine problems sidelined the challenger.

At the front of the pack, Blane Heimbach was anything but alone as Nate Snyder became the new challenger, and challenge he did. With the white flag waiving, Snyder took the high groove into turn one but Heimbach was the fastest off of turn two.

With the checker flag waiving, Heimbach took the win with Snyder second, Jason Clauss third, Kramer Williamson fourth and Phil Walter fifth.

FEATURE FINISH: Blane Heimbach, Nate Snyder, Jason Clauss, Kramer Williamson, Phil Walter, Kevin Welsh, Mark Bitner, Kevin Nouse, Kyle Purks, Brook Weibley, Bryan Golden, Randy West, Chris Coyle, Bill Brian Jr., Scott Flammer, Midge Miller, Curt Michael, Scott Pursell, Tim Hogue, Greg Coverdale, Lenny Krautheim, Mike Walter, Jason Shultz, Adrian Shaffer, Colby Womer. DNQ- - Brian Seidel, Davey Sammons, Junior Martin, Brian Normhold, Bob Beidleman, Mares Stellfox, Jamie Bodo, Rob Stillwagon, Gary Gollub, Bob Anderson, Ed Aikin, Jorden Frontz, Frankie Herr, Mike Kostic, John Westbrook, Troy Funk Jr., Charlie Anderson, Nathan Berwager, Adam Romig, Mike Haggenbottom, Duane Mausteller, Johnny Zimmerman, Jimmy Stitzel, Scott Messimer, Pat Cannon, Wade Stauffer, Bave Mader, Nyle Berkes, Brian Buckwalter, Todd Rittenhouse. 55 Cars/29 358 Sprints, 26 URC Sprints.


RAIN STOPS URC AT PENN CAN PRIOR TO FEATURE EVENT

The staff, management and track crew of the Penn Speedway Can did everything possible to beat out Mother Nature on Friday night, unfortunately they lost their battle. With a 70% chance of rain and showers circling the area, the track made the call for warm-ups. A field of twenty-six URC sprint cars were registered and answered the call for the three qualifying heat race events. The heat wins went to Brook Weibley, Gary Gollub and Mark Bitner.

The URC Bar's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series feature starting field was called to the speedway. As the cars were pushed off, the rain began to fall. The URC sprints were sent back to the pits and they never had an opportunity to return to the speedway. The rain fell for about thirty minutes before the track management made the difficult call to cancel the event.

Penn Can Speedway Management and the URC Managing Members discuss several dates for the make-up event and the format of the show. An official announcement will come on shortly to confirm the make-up date.

For now, the URC Sprints are heading to the Selinsgrove Speedway for their Saturday night, Jack Gunn Memorial URC/358 Sprint Shoot Out. All cars will time trial shooting for a $200 fast time bonus being posted by C&B Mushrooms. Following time trials, a series of qualifying events and "B" will head-up the $3,000 to win Championship.

URC HANDICAPPING OFFERS PLENTY OF PASSING AND DIFFERENT WINNERS

URC is now in year two of their new handicapping system and the results have been very successful. The biggest complaint heard in sprint car racing today is the limited passing and the many, win from the pole feature events. This is not the case with URC. In 2005, after twenty-five racing events, URC delivered sixteen different winners to victory lane. It was also a season when the series champion only won three events on the road to winning title. The championship chase was that close, going down to the final three events.

Now in 2006, after just three URC events, the results remain consistent. Three races and three different winners. With that said, URC has seen a lot of passing, and yes, passing from deep in the pack.

On opening day at Bridgeport, Randy West started twenty-second in the feature and finished ninth. In opening day heat race action, Curt Michael started sixth and won his heat. Mark Bitner, the 2005 URC Rookie of the Year started seventh in his heat and finished second. In the B Main, Greg Coverdale started fourteenth and took the win. Brook Weibley won the feature that day after starting on the front row, but a lead change on lap twenty-one and again on lap twenty-two, brought the fans to their feet.

The story continues. URC then traveled to the New Egypt Speedway for race two of the series. In qualifying, Brian Seidel started ninth and rallied home to a third place heat race finish. Defending URC Champion Curt Michael started eighth in his heat and finished second. In the twenty-five lap feature, Dave Ely started eighth and delivered a second place finish as Billy Pauch started twelfth and charged home in third.

Last weekend, URC made their first stop at the Delaware International Speedway and the heat race events were equally thrilling. Kramer Williamson started eighth and won the eight lap qualifier as Bill Brian Jr started ninth and finished second in his qualifying event. Eventual feature winner Curt Michael, started the twenty-five lap feature in eleventh and scored his first win of the year, taking the lead just five laps from the drop of the checker flag. Former Champion Dave Ely, started twenty-fourth and rallied to tenth in a feature that saw only two caution flags.

Passing in sprint car racing is alive and well, at least in URC.
The URC handicapping works this way. Heat races are lined-up according to point average with the high point drivers starting to the rear of the heat race. The feature line-up is straight up off the heat race finishes with one exception, the top free from the prior weeks feature will start tenth through twelfth. There are some exceptions to the policy that includes dealing with new drivers and drivers who miss races, but for the most part, the URC handicapping system is that easy.

The URC handicapping system rewards for performance in the heat races and in turn, that makes the qualifying events even that more exciting. Points are awarded for the heats and finishes.

URC will be in action next weekend at the Penn Can Speedway on Friday night, May 26 followed by the Jack Gunn Memorial URC/258 Challenge at the Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, May 27.

THERE'S NO MATCH FOR CURT MICHAEL IN DELAWARE URC RUN SATURDAY NIGHT

DELMAR, DE . . . . . Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE turned in a stellar ride, wheeling the Palladino #99 URC sprint car to his first win of the season and twenty-seventh career win under the URC banner last Saturday night at the Delaware International Speedway. Michael started eleventh, then had to chase down pole sitter Kramer Williamson, taking the lead on lap nineteen of the twenty-five lap contest. Michael was never challenged the final six laps, easily pocketing the $2,000 first place prize money. This event marked the third race of the season long URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series and the first event of the 2006 Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series.

A field of thirty-five URC sprint cars turned out for the event with heat race victories going to Kramer Williamson, Mike Haggenbottom and Midge Miller. The twelve lap "B" Main saw Mares Stellfox take the win.

As a result of winning the first heat race of the night, Kramer Williamson of Palmyra, PA and the winner of sixty-three career victories, earned the pole starting position. At the drop of the green flag, Williamson ran to hide from the rest of the field leaving second place runner Mike Haggenbottom to deal with Midge Miller and Jon Eldreth.

The first yellow of the event was displayed on lap four when Jason Clauss stopped in turn two. On the restart, a backstretch mishap took its toll on the Bill Gallagher owned 5g driven by Brian Seidel, sidelining him from the balance of the feature event.

When green flag racing resumed, Williamson remained on the point followed by Haggenbottom and John Eldreth with Curt Michael already in the fourth position. Suddenly, the reality was noticeable as the Palladino sprinter appeared to be the fastest car on the track and reeling in the front runners. By lap ten Michael was racing in third and closing in on runner-up Mike Haggenbottom. At the front of the pack, Williamson was alone, unaware of a closing challenger.

At the halfway point, Williamson was the leader with Haggenbottom second and in a strong battle with Curt Michael. Jon Eldreth and Midge Miller made-up the top five with Greg Coverdale and Dave Ely now on a charge.

Michael moved into second on lap fourteen and quickly made-up ground on the leader. In just three quick laps, Michael caught Williamson then made an outside pass for the lead on lap nineteen.

With just five laps remaining, there were a lot of positions shuffling in the top ten. Bill Brian Jr was on a run to the front, racing in the top five on lap twenty-one. Greg Coverdale, driving the Mike Bostic URC sprinter broke into the top five with just two laps remaining.

As the checker flag fell, Curt Michael easily took the win over Kramer Williamson, Bill Brian Jr., Jon Eldreth and Greg Coverdale. Making up the top ten were Randy West, Tim Hogue, Mike Haggenbottom, Ed Aikin and Dave Ely.

The LikeWise Construction fast time of the night award went to Kramer Williamson who set the fast time of the night during his qualifying event. The Hard Charger Award went to Dave Ely who finished an impressive tenth after qualifying through the consolation event.

FEATURE FINISH: Curt Michael, Kramer Williamson, Bill Brian Jr., Jon Eldreth, Greg Coverdale, Randy West, Tim Hogue, Mike Haggenbottom, Ed Aikin, Dave Ely, Midge Miller, Dave McGough, Justin Collett, Kevin Welsh, Brook Weibley, Junior Martin, Will Urkuski, Josh Weller, Mark Bitner, Chris Coyle, Mares Stellfox, Gary Gollub, Jimmy Stitzel, Brian Seidel, Jason Clauss.

The URC Sprints will invade the First State on Saturday night with the season opener for the Taylor & Messick Delaware State URC Sprint Series. This will mark the first event of the 2006 URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series at the Delaware International Speedway. Brook Weibley won the opener at Bridgeport as Brian Seidel took the victory at the New Egypt Speedway and both drivers will be looking to be the first to score a double win in 2006.

Weibley and Seidel have established themselves as the "hot shoes" after just two events, but at Delaware International, almost anything can happen. Defending champion Curt Michael of Ocean View, DE will be looking for a home state victory as Dave Ely of West Lawn, PA is searching for that parking space in victory lane as well.

The URC STAR WAR's 4 currently have locked down the top four spots in the chase for the $10,000 URC Championship. Brian Seidel has 214 points to his credit with Dave Ely in second showing 213 points.

FOUR POINT MARGIN SEPARATES TOP THREE IN URC POINTS

The 2006 URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series is off to another competitive start. After two events, there is a four point margin separating the top three in points and right now, there's a new sheriff in town. That's right, Brian Seidel of Allentown, PA now leads the chase for the $10,000 winner's share of the URC Championship Title, holding a one point lead over Dave Ely and a four point advantage over Kevin Welsh.

Seidel was thrilled after his convincing victory in the Bill Gallagher owned Valley Forge INC sprint car Saturday night at the New Egypt Speedway. Seidel just out ran everyone in the twenty-five lap contest. Car owner Bill Gallagher gave the credit to Seidel, saying, "Brian really knows his way around this place", referring to the tricky "D" New Egypt Speedway. Seidel on the other hand said, "These guys gave me a good car that just worked anywhere on the track".

There is no doubt that we'll be hearing more from this team in 2006, clearly drawing the line in the sand that they're out to win the URC title.

"We're happy to be in the point lead but it's early in the game, right now we're going out to win races" added Gallagher.

Taking a look at the point chase after two events, Brian Seidel is on top with 214 points over Dave Ely with 213, Kevin Welsh 210, Curt Michael 192 and Brook Weibley is ranked fifth with 184. Rounding out the top ten are Bill Brian Jr 174, Justin Collett 172, Randy West 163, Kramer Williamson 154 and Greg Coverdale 152.

Along with the numerous title contenders, URC has a full roster of fast rising stars. Of no surprise is the performance of Randy West, driving the Guy Howie owned sprint car. After just two races, West is ranked in the top ten in points. Justin Collett has been a strong performer as well after just two races Collett is also ranked in the top ten in points.

Saturday night at the New Egypt Speedway, Todd Rittenhouse of Norristown, PA was a dark horse that was glowing by the end of the twenty-five lap URC feature. Rittenhouse started twenty-third in a field of twenty-five sprint cars and immediately got off to quick start, passing four cars in the first lap. Rittenhouse kept his foot to the floor and delivered an outstanding eleventh place finish to earn the URC "Hard Charger" Award at the end of the feature. This was a super run for a guy that has been away from URC for a couple years. This performance was no fluke, as twenty cars were still running at the drop of the checker flag.

Off to a bad start in 2006 is Ed Aikin of Lincoln University, PA. Aikin, driving one of the Johnny Zimmerman team cars, had an awesome 2005 season, finishing fourth in the point chase, just twenty-five points shy of the runner-up seat in the title chase. A series of mechanical problems kept Aikin from starting the feature event Saturday night, his first DNQ in over a year. Aikin is certain that he will shake off this early season bump and be back in the hunt when URC invades Delaware International on Saturday night, May 13.

The season is young and there is plenty of URC sprint car racing ahead in 2006. Following the race at Delaware International, the URC Sprints will head to the Penn Can Speedway on Friday night, May 26. Then on Saturday night, May 27, Selinsgrove Speedway will host the Jack Gunn Memorial URC/358 Challenge Shoot Out paying $3,000 to win the 30 lap feature event.

Seidel, driving the Bill Gallagher owned Valley Forge Inc. sprinter, dominated the race, winning by a four second margin over Dave Ely and modified star Billy Pauch.

At the start of the twenty-five lap feature event, Greg Coverdale of Milford, DE jumped to an early lead with Seidel racing in second by lap two. Coverdale, driving the potent Mike Bostic sprinter, quickly had to content with Brian Seidel who rocketed into the lead on lap four. Within just a few laps, Seidel had a six car length lead before the first caution of the main event was displayed on lap nine for Will Urkuski who stopped in turn three.

On the restart, Coverdale had another shot to challenge Seidel for the top spot but once again, Seidel left the competition behind as he ran to hide from the rest of the field. Also on the charge was Dave Ely who was racing in third and Billy Pauch driving the Lou Eckrich sprinter who was racing in third.

At the halfway mark, Seidel had a huge lead over Ely with Coverdale third, Bodo fourth and Billy Pauch making up the top five. On lap seventeen, defending URC Champion Curt Michael spun in turn two, displaying the second caution of the feature. Michael did continue in the race, fighting problems with his brakes the remainder of the race.

On the restart, Pauch slipped by Coverdale to move into third as Seidel and Ely ran to hide from the rest of the field. The third and final caution of the race came on lap twenty-three for Justin Collett who spun in turn four.

The restart now set-up a two lap dash as all eyes watched Billy Pauch who was sitting in the third spot. At the drop of the green flag, Seidel was off in a flash with Ely getting a quick start as well. For the final two circuits, Seidel remained untouchable, taking the checker flag and his twentieth career URC victory. Dave Ely finished second followed by Billy Pauch, Greg Coverdale and Jamie Bodo. Bodo, from Frenchtown, NJ delivered a flawless ride to score his first ever top five finish in URC.

Brook Weibley, winner of URC's season opener dropped out the feature early with rear problems as Curt Michael finished twentieth, struggling with failing brakes. Mr. Consistent Ed Aikin who qualified for every URC race in 2005, had mechanical problems keep him out of the New Egypt URC feature. During the running of the third URC heat race, Tim Hogue flipped after tapping the fourth turn wall. Hogue walked away uninjured but the car suffered extensive damage.

CURT MICHAEL LOOKS FOR HOME STATE WIN SATURDAY WHEN URC INVADES DELAWARE INTERNATIONAL

Defending Champion Curt Michael will be racing in his home state this Saturday night when the United Racing Company Sprint Cars invade the Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, DE. Michael is hot off a strong second place finish at URC's season opener last Saturday night at the Bridgeport Speedway. But a home state victory, at a track where Curt has a lot of fans is even more important.

Opening day winner Brook Weibley has another thought as he is looking for back-to-back victories driving the Turpin/Kennedy #56 sprint car. Weibley was fast at Bridgeport and the Bill Turpin power plant just gobbled-up the spacious five-eighth mile oval.

The Saturday night, Delaware International event will be part of the season long BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series point chase and the opening race of the Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series.

Curt Michael and Brook Weibley may be the favorites following their performance at the Bridgeport opener, but watch for Chris Coyle, Kevin Welsh, Dave Ely and Jason Clauss to be in the hunt for the $2,000 winner's share of the 25 lap URC Sprint feature.

BROOK WEIBLEY RATTLES STAR FILLED FIELD IN URC OPENER AT BRIDGEPORT

Brook Weibley of York Springs, PA collect $2,100 in cash after winning the twenty-five lap United Racing Company season opener at the Bridgeport Speedway on Saturday night. Weibley, driving the Fred Kennedy/Bill Turpin owned sprinter, quickly adapted to the Bridgeport Speedway and turned in an impressive performance after a late race battle with URC defending champion Curt Michael. For Weibley, it was his first career URC victory and it certainly was a thriller that was decided in the final laps. This was the first point race for the season long title chase as well the opening event of the Fred's Trailer Parts New Series of 2006.

A field of thirty-six URC sprint cars turned out for the season opener with heat race victories go to Mares Stellfox, Brook Weibley, Kevin Welsh and Curt Michael as Greg Coverdale was the best in the sixteen car "B" Main event.

In the twenty-five lap URC feature, Brook Weibley took the lead at the drop of the green flag with teammate Mares Stellfox following in second. On the move was Curt Michael, Kevin Welsh and Justin Collett who made up the top five. On lap four the first caution of the event was displayed for Chris Coyle who stopped in turn two.

The restart saw Weibley dart off at the drop of the green flag with Curt Michael now in second. The field raced for two more laps under the green before the yellow was displayed on lap seven for Brooke Bowman who slowed on the speedway.

When green flag racing resumed, Weibley again ran to hide but now Curt Michael was heating up the Palladino sprinter and the #99 was coming to life. As the field passed for the halfway sign, Weibley, Michael and Welsh made up the top three with the final yellow of the featuring now waiving. This time, it was Kramer Williamson who stopped on the speedway.

The turning point of the race was now about to take place with Weibley on the point and Curt Michael in second. With the green flag waiving, Michael now set-up a battle with Weibley for the win. Just as Michael began to pressure for the lead, the Weibley sprint car began to leave of trail of smoke and the Palladino sprinter became faster. By lap eighteen, Michael was all over the leader with lapped traffic just ahead. With five laps remaining, Weibley had his hands full, looking forward at the slower traffic and hearing the roar of the Curt Michael charge for the win.

On lap twenty-one, there was a change for the lead with Curt Michael on point and Weibley now in second. Going into turn one, Weibley reversed the same move on Michael, taking the outside groove to regain the lead. Michael fought back, but ailing brakes kept the Palladino sprinter from running at full throttle.

With just two laps remaining, Weibley had the most comfortable lead since the halfway point of the race. Some occasional smoke bellowed out the Kennedy/Turpin sprint but this win had Weibley's name written all over it. Weibley took the victory over Curt Michael, Justin Collett, Kevin Welsh and Ed Aikin. Making up the top ten were Mares Stellfox, Jon Eldreth, Bill Brian Jr., Randy West and Jason Clauss.

Fast time of the night went to Brook Weibley as the Hard Charge five point bonus award went to Randy West driving the Guy Howie sprinter. West advanced thirteen spots in the feature event.

FEATURE FINISH: Brook Weibley, Curt Michael, Justin Collett, Kevin Welsh, Ed Aikin, Mares Stellfox, Jon Eldreth, Bill Brian Jr., Randy West, Jason Clauss, Dave Ely, Dave Betts, Brian Seidel, Mike Kostic, Junior Martin, Josh Weller, Tim Hogue, Joe Zuczek, Mark Bitner, Brooke Bauman, Kramer Williamson, Scott McLaren, Dave McGough, Greg Coverdale, Chris Coyle. DNQ-Midge Miller, Jimmy Stitzel, Gary Gollub, Robbie Stillwaggon, Will Urkuski, Jeff Fifthian, Adam Gorden, Jamie Bodo, Johnny Zimmerman, Davey Sammons, Scott Pursell.

NEXT EVENT: URC will present race two of the 2006 URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series on Saturday night, April 22 at the Delaware International. This event will mark the first race of the Taylor & Messick Delaware State Sprint Series, a mini-point series within the season long URC point chase. The Delaware International Speedway is located on Route 13 in Delmar, DE.


URC DRIVERS PLAN MEET & GREET AT BRIDGEPORT OPENING DAY SATURDAY

URC drivers Curt Michael, Chris Coyle, Junior Martin and Randy West are not only ready for the first race of the season, but their ready and waiting to Meet & Greet the many race fans expected to attend opening day this Saturday at the Bridgeport Speedway. Race time is set for 6 PM. The United Racing Company Sprint Series sponsored by BAR's Leaks & Advance Auto Parts will kickoff their fifty-ninth season on Saturday night, April 15 at the five-eighth mile Bridgeport Speedway. For URC, 2006 has become a season of change, with a new direction that so far, has pleased competitors, spectators, event promoters and many media members as well.

"I'm really anxious about this season, not only because of the increased payoff, special events and point fund, but the exposure URC and the drivers have seen this year", commented three time URC Champion Curt Michael. The exposure that Curt is talking about, is a direct result of many URC drivers going on radio shows and making special appearances in the 2006 pre-season. And there is more to come.

On Saturday night at the Bridgeport Speedway, four URC drivers will be in the grandstand area between 4 and 5 PM to Meet and Greet the Bridgeport race fans. Curt Michael, Chris Coyle, Junior Martin and Randy West are looking forward to the always festive Bridgeport Speedway pre-race activities.

The URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series will open this Saturday night at the Bridgeport Speedway. This event will also be the first point race of the 2006 Fred's Trailer Parts New Series, a mini-point series for URC this season. URC will then travel to the Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night, April 22 followed by a stop at the New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night, April 29.

JUNIOR MARTIN TO SPORT BAR'S LEAKS IN URC OPENER SATURDAY AT BRIDGEPORT

There are high hopes for a story book season for twenty-four year old Junior Martin of Felton, DE. Martin had good luck go his way at the 2005 URC Awards Banquet, winning the $10,000 BAR's Leaks Race Team sponsorship for the coming United Racing Company Sprint Series. Since picking up the BAR's Leaks sponsorship, the team has new energy and a list of additional sponsors who anticipate a successful season for this true, "grass roots" racer.

Junior, an auto mechanic by trade will be at the URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series opener on Saturday night at the Bridgeport Speedway. This will be the first official outing of the BAR's Leaks #17 that Junior will pilot on the busy URC Sprint Tour. The Martin/BAR's Leaks Team has earned a lot of press since the $10,000 sponsorship announcement and in turn, that has attracted some additional sponsors to include Feador Electric, Griffith Energy Services and LikeWise Construction.

"Our goal like everyone is to win some races, but we know the reality of just how competitive URC is", commented Martin. URC is not the place to race if your looking for easy pickings and you can ask URC defending Champion Curt Michael. In 2005, Michael won his third URC title and won three races over the course of the season. How competitive is URC? In twenty-six events last year, there were sixteen different winners. Repeat or multiple wins are just hard to find.

URC will kick-off their fifty-ninth season at the Bridgeport Speedway on Saturday, April 15 with a series of qualifying races, a "B" Main and the 25 lap feature event that will pay a hefty $2,000 to the winner. The all important URC Title will pay $10,000 to the champion so collecting points will be a key over the course of the season. URC will also offer the Hard Charger five bonus points for each feature event with the driver advancing the most spots collecting the points.

Defending Champion Curt Michael and the Palladino sprint car will again be in the hunt for the title along with the return of one of URC's favorites, Greg Coverdale. Driving the Mike Bostic sprint car, Coverdale the former 1994 URC Champion is the winner of forty-nine career URC victories. Coverdale is always a fan favorite with his exciting "on the edge" driving style. Wheeling the Bostic sprint car, one of the most competitive cars on the URC circuit, Coverdale will be a shoe in threat for the nightly money and the big slice of the loot at the season end URC Awards Banquet.

Kevin Welsh of Far Hills, NJ is an eleven time URC feature winner and a driver viewed with each season to be a future URC Champion. Although on any given night, Welsh can have the fastest car, mechanical problems and being just a tad short on racing luck, has kept Kevin from earning the Championship Crown.

Of course we can't count out Kramer Williamson of Palmyra, PA. A former World of Outlaw feature winner and a past winner of the Williams Grove National Open, Kramer has the experience to get the job done. With sixty-three URC career wins and a former champion title behind his name, Kramer Williamson is expected to be in the heat of the battle.

Central PA sprint car star Brook Weibley of York Springs, PA will be in the hunt this year as well. Driving the Turpin/Kennedy #56 sprint car, Brook will want to etch his name on the URC career win list before the dust settles on opening night.

So just who else could win on opening day? Just about anyone. Watch for Jason Clauss to be in the thick of the battle along with Brian Seidel, Dave McGough, Scott Pursell and Dave Ely. Chris Coyle and car owner John Pinter will have a challenge or two in store along with "Steady Eddie" Aikin, who just appears from no where in the final laps to mix-up the finish.

For a look at the 2006 URC Roster, the season long schedule or to view the driver profiles, visit URC at: www.urcsprints.com and get ready for Saturday, April 15 when the season gets underway at the Bridgeport Speedway in Bridgeport, NJ. Pits open at 1 PM with race time set for 6 PM.


AFTER 35 YEARS, THE PINK PANTHER IS STILL GOING STRONG

Kramer Williamson will once again be back running the URC BAR'S Leaks/Advance Auto Parts sprint series in his own “Pink Panther”. The past two seasons, Kramer debuted his Pink Panther and ran most of the URC races. In 2005, Kramer finished 5th in overall points, and won the Delaware State Championship.

2006 will mark Kramer’s 35th year running the tough central Pennsylvania sprint car circuit as well as the always challenging, URC traveling tour. Will this be Kramer’s final season running sprint cars?

Kramer is running his own Kramer Kraft Chassis with a Rider Rocket under the hood from Rider Racing Engines. Kramer’s Pink Panther is a family run car. Sharon, the woman who has supported Kramer throughout his racing career, runs the URC Novelty stand where she sells t-shirt and other memorabilia for URC. Kramer’s son Kurt Williamson leads Cliff Irvin, Kyle Irvin, and Chris Gustin to make up the #73 Pink Panther crew. Kramer’s daughter Felecia also helps out with the Panther. Felecia occasionally is forced into helping to push the car out onto pit road. Otherwise she is busy running back in forth from the pits to the URC novelty stand making sure everyone has everything they need. The Pink Panther is the prefect example to the grass roots of racing, family, pride and the will to win.

Without the help of sponsors, this team would not be as successful. Chris & Jodi Gustin of Armorboard Packaging is the team’s major sponsor. Chris Gustin owned racecars years ago but with starting a business was unable to devote his time solely to racing. So he teamed up with Kramer and without Chris & Jodi’s Armorboard Packaging Sponsorship, the team would not be able to compete the entire racing season.

Kramer’s son Kurt works at Penske Racing Shocks. Thanks to his expertise in the shock department, the team feels the Penske Racing Shocks are the Hot Set Up.

K&N Filters and Hank’s Performance Products supplies the team with excellent components.

Ron & Brian May paint the Panther and are responsible for that superb looking, finely painted Pink Panther. Kramer’s brother George Williamson of GW signs supplies the team with the decals and has painted that notorious Pink Panther on the wing of the racecar.

Kramer and his Pink Panther team are busy getting ready for the URC season opener at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey on April 15th.

Last year the Pink Panther racing team won 2 feature events. The team is confident that this year you will see the Pink Panther up front and in the winner’s circle.


COUNTDOWN UNDERWAY TO URC OPENER SATURDAY, APRIL 15 AT BRIDGEPORT

The 59th season opener for the URC Sprint Cars is just days away as the first green flag will fall on Saturday, April 15 at the Bridgeport Speedway. As always, a high quality field of sprint cars are expected to kickoff the BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Sprint Series. Defending champion Curt Michael along with Kevin Welsh, Dave Ely and Brian Seidel will make-up the URC STAR WARS 4, as they plan to dominate the URC Sprint Tour.

Although the URC STAR WARS 4 may have the pre-season muscle to stake their claim on the URC title, don't count out Bill Brian Jr., Ed Aikin, Kramer Williamson, Dave McGough, Pete Green, Greg Coverdale and Scott Pursell just to name a few. The URC Champion will pocket a hefty $10,000 along with the honor and prestige of winning the URC title. URC drivers and owners will also have an eye on the $2,000 to win nightly winner's payoff.

Bridgeport Speedway will kickoff this aggressive season for URC on Saturday night, April 15 with the traveling sprint series then moving on to the Delaware International Speedway on Saturday night, April 22. The New Egypt Speedway will be the third stop on the URC Tour on Saturday night, April 29.

URC has two early season big shows quickly approaching with the first big money event taking place at the Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, May 27. This event is billed as the Jack Gunn Memorial URC/358 Shoot Out. $3,000 will go to the winner of 25 lap Jack Gunn Memorial. Then on Friday night, June 9, Williams Grove Speedway will host the 1-866-Shot Drop/BAR's Leaks Sprint Nationals. With $4,000 to win on the line, some of the best sprint car drivers in the country will be in town to take on the brass of URC.

Competitor entry forms for both the Jack Gunn Memorial and the Shot Drop Sprint Nationals are available on the URC website.

URC DRIVERS CHASE $500 IN URC REWARDS PROGRAM

A cash bonus of $500 will be paid to one lucky driver or owner who competes with the United Racing Company and works to promote their team and URC. Every time a URC driver or owner participates in a car show, public appearance, race night autograph session or sends out a team press release, that driver or owner will earn one "draw" chip. At the annual URC Awards Banquet, all the chips earned will go into the barrel for a special draw. The winning Driver or Owner in that draw, will pocket $500 in cash. It only takes one chip to win, but the more chips you earn, the better chance you have to win.

URC Managing Members John and Cher Zimmerman and Bob and Donna Miller worked to develop this program to encourage drivers and owners to rub elbows with the public and get the word out about URC and the great drivers who make up this organization.

Nineteen URC Drivers or Owners have already earned chips this season, taking part in such events as Motorsports, the York County Show, Lebanon Mall Show, Granite Run Mall Show, the Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show and the recent Zern's Market car show just to name a few. Some drivers have also taken part in various interview opportunities on Dirt Nation, Gasoline Alley, BCTV in Reading and the BIG 105 Radio. Two drivers, Scott Pursell and Johnny Zimmerman have each earned a chip for sending out a team press release.

The goal of the program ultimately is to get the drivers and URC exposure and in the meantime, the drivers gain valuable experience with interview opportunities. Press releases are also a great way to generate news and exposure and URC Teams now find a little additional reward for their efforts.

CURRENT URC REWARDS STANDINGS: 5 Johnny Zimmerman, 4 Mares Stellfox, 4 Davey Sammons, 3 Curt Michael, 3 Scott Pursell, 2 Fred Kennedy, 2 Bill Gallagher, 2 Jimmy Martin, 2 Josh Weller, 1 Dave Ely, 1 Pat Palladino, 1 Kevin Welsh, 1 Brian Seidel, 1 Bill Brian, 1 Brook Weibley, 1 Justin Collett, 1 Mark Bitner, 1 Dave McGough, 1 Randy West.


URC ANNOUNCES $4,000 TO WIN NATIONAL EVENT AT WILLIAMS GROVE,
BIG SEASON PLANNED WITH ALL THE RIGHT STUFF IN 2006

The much anticipated URC "big announcement" is out, a National event is now on the URC and Williams Grove Speedway schedule and the date is Friday night, June 9. The famed oval in Mechanicsburg, PA will host this first 1-866 Shot Drop/Bar's Leaks Sprint Car Nationals, a 25 lap event paying $4,000 to win, $1,000 for tenth and a hefty $300 just to take the green flag. Time trials, heat race qualifying, a "B" and "C" main along with a last chance race will make-up the format for the URC sanctioned National event. URC drivers are expected to make-up the bulk of the entry list but look for invaders from ESS, PSG, USCS, ASCS, NRA the 358 Sprints and some other surprises that could include Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease and Kenny Adams just to name a few. Pre-entry forms for this event can be found on the Competitors Page at www.urcsprints.com.

The 866 Shot Drop/Bar's Leaks Sprint Nationals is URC's biggest event on the 2006 schedule, joined by the Jack Gunn Memorial URC/358 Shoot Out at the Selinsgrove Speedway on Saturday night, May 27. Dedicated to the memory of one of racing's greatest promoters, the Jack Gunn Memorial will pay an eye catching $3,000 to win. The good news is far from over as URC will support the USCS North-South Shoot Out on July 7 & 8. Also on the schedule is a $10,000 to win show at Knoxville on August 5 followed by a $5,000 to win event at Knoxville on August 6.

URC is again a potent force in the $4,000 to win Bully Hill Nationals at Black Rock Speedway on September 9 as well as the $6,000 to win September 16th Oshweken weekend. Last but not least is the URC/ESS/PSG Challenge at Rolling Wheels on Saturday, October 7 with $3,000 going to the winner. 2006 is a big season of big paying events.

To enhance the URC season and this long list of big paying events, URC will post $2,000 to win all weekly 25 lap feature events with $200 going to the twenty-fourth starter in the main event.

The URC Competitors Meeting on Sunday attracted a big turn out (in excess of eighty people) and why not, there was plenty of good news to be heard. Aside from the hype of the big event/big money shows, URC also announced a URC Rewards Program, designed to offer a $500 cash reward to drivers and owners who work to promote themselves as well as URC. Drivers and Owners earn chips by participating in car show and driver appearances, doing autograph sessions on race night and sending out Team press releases. All this additional media exposure will only grow the exposure of URC and the drivers and owners who support it. At the URC Banquet, one chip will be drawn with $500 going to the winner. The more publicity to you, the more chips you earn, the more chips you earn, the better chance a Driver or Owner has of winning.

New in 2006 will be a slight change in the URC Hard Charger Award. The Hard Charger of the feature event (the driver who advances the most positions) will earn five bonus points in each feature event. With the close point battle each year in the URC chase for the title, these points could very well affect the outcome of who will the $10,000 URC Championship payout.

Another announcement made at the meeting is the joining of Bob Hilbert Sportswear with URC. URC racing apparel for 2006 will be designed by Bob Hilbert Sportswear and sold by Sharon Williamson at the URC Novelty Stand.

There was a brief discussion on URC car specifications with the major changing being in the car weighing procedure. For 2006, the minimum weight rule will be 1,475 with driver after the event. For all regular events, mufflers will be mandatory at all tracks. This may not apply for some special events. The rule book was revised and clarified over the winter months and drivers and owners are encouraged to visit www.urcsprints.com, go to the competitors page and view or print the rule book.

Rookie drivers were coached on what is expected of them and the progressive handicapping advancement in their starting positions. All drivers and owners should be aware that the opening day event is a draw for starting positions. All drivers and owners should arrive early on opening day and attend the Drivers Meeting.

The URC opener is set for the Bridgeport Speedway on Saturday, April 15. Assigned car teching will take place at 1 PM outside the pit gate at Bridgeport.

BAR's LEAKS Sprint Car In URC Booth at Motorsports

The unveiling of the BAR's Leaks URC sprint car will take place at the URC booth during Motorsports 2006, January 13-15 at the Fort Washington Convention Center in Fort Washington, PA. The BAR's Leaks sprint car, to be driven by Jimmy Martin III of Felton, DE has spurred much excitement and interest in URC. BAR's Leaks, now in their tenth season with URC, celebrated by offering a $10,000 cash sponsorship to one URC race team. The announcement was made at the URC Awards Banquet and Jimmy Martin III was the winner.

Since that night, life has changed for the twenty-four year old Jimmy Martin III who is known around the racing circles as Junior. "The phone has been ringing off the hook with interviews and crew members who are again retuning to the shop", comment Junior with much excitement.

It's amazing what $10,000 can really do. Along with the ability of enhancing their overall equipment program, the Martin moral is at an all time high. "We plan to use the money to upgrade our equipment, not just at the start of the season but on-going". Martin continued to say, "We can now change out parts when needed rather then waiting until they break".

The new start for 2006 has this youthful driver at the peak of excitement. "The car looks great and we have good equipment so now it's all up to me", said Martin over the past weekend. "My personal goal for this year is to win a URC feature and finish in the top ten in points". That in itself is a big challenge when you consider the competition on the URC BAR's Leaks/Advance Auto Parts Series.

Junior is a second generation URC sprint car driver. His dad, Jimmy Martin Jr followed the URC tour for many years and owns four career wins. Juniors grandfather and dad are very supportive of Juniors efforts and are the backbone of this team. The Martins offer a grass roots approach to their racing program which includes working late hours in the evening after a long day at work.

The BAR's Leaks sponsored racer is a sharp looking sprinter, painted black with yellow numbers (17) and touches of red. The sprint car skin sits on a J&J Chassis that is powered by an HG Associate engine. An Advance Racing Suspension will help this high powered beast work the dirt tracks of the east. Joining BAR's Leaks as team sponsors are Feador Electric and LikeWise Construction.

During your visit this weekend to Motorsports, be sure to stop by the URC Booth and check out the BAR's Leaks sprinter. Junior Martin will be with his car and giving away BAR's Leaks hats and t-shirts randomly throughout the weekend. When you visit the URC booth, be sure to pick-up your free copy of the URC TODAY Newspaper.
