Tight UMP Late Model Point Battle Going Into Final Stretch
Only two weeks remain in the UMP Late Model point battle at Oakshade Raceway. On the line is a Rocket Chassis and $7,000 courtesy of Ruhlman Race Cars in Clark Lake, Michigan, Wyse Excavating in Wauseon, Ohio, Raceway Energy’s in Wauseon, Ohio, Harold and Sue Holland in Lyons, Ohio, Bill Ehrsam Concrete in Sylvania, Ohio, Don Williams Excavating in Wauseon, Ohio and Leo’s Metal & Wood in Clayton, Michigan.
Seven drivers remain mathematically alive for the point championship, with the top four separated by less than 100 points.
Rody Schroyer and Dusty Moore have remained in a heated battle atop the UMP Late Model point standings at Oakshade throughout the entire summer. Neither driver has been able to establish much of a point lead and currently Schroyer leads Moore by just 24 points.
Casey Noonan has made his presence known, closing in to just 51 points behind Schroyer after posting his third UMP Late Model Feature win at Oakshade last weekend. Consistent runs for Zach Olger all summer have netted him 81 points back.
With 95 points possible for a feature win, Kevin Reeve, Ronnie Perrine Jr. and Zac Davis all still have a very slim chance at the championship, but would need for the top drivers to experience a lot of bad luck the next two weeks.
The Oakshade Raceway UMP Late Model Champion will be determined the night of Saturday, August 23 so the next couple weekends ought to make for some exciting racing action with such a tight point battle so late in the season.
