    UFo Championship Sets 2016 Point Fund Projections & Super Late Model “Playoff”!

    (Mars, PA) With the 2016 racing season just one month away, the “New” UFo Championship has set its point fund projections for 2016. The 2016 UFo Super Late Model and Semi-Late tours are scheduled to pay over $450,000 in race payoffs and point fund bonus based on the current event schedule.


    As a result of the scheduling process, a “playoff” situation has been created for the UFo Super Late Model championship in 2016. While the championship will still be determined by a traditional point system that awards equal points to all races, half of the twenty scheduled point events will occur during the six week stretch from Labor Day weekend until the first full weekend in October. This will throw more Super Late Model drivers than ever before into the battle for the 2016 title going into the fall season of events.


    The 2016 point bonus fund will be fueled by long-time sponsors of the tour as well as new sponsorship. Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic, American Racer, Lias Tire speedshop and Precise Racing Products speedshop have renewed their sponsorships and have increased the UFo Championship point fund ever year under the current format since the tour’s inception. Ritchey Sandblasting of Woodbury, PA has come aboard as a new sponsor of the dual-late model division circuit. As always, the UFo Championship will pass on 100% of the sponsors’ contributions to the race teams in cash or awards.


    The UFo Championship dual division tour will take the green flag in just one month. The “2016 World Blastoff” at the state-of-the-art Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, March 26 will see both the UFo Super Late Models and Semi-Lates begin their point chase through the galaxy of supertracks. The Super Late Models will race 35 laps for $3,000 while the Semi-Lates will pay $1,000 to the winner of a 25 lap championship. Port Royal has set the rain date for the event for April 9.


    The “New” UFo Championship is proudly able to pay these point funds without the use of series membership fees and by keeping car entry fees to minimal amounts. The reduced UFo car entry fees and elimination of membership fees saved race teams over $15,000 in 2015. Race teams will save approximately $30,000 in 2016 because of this concept.


    The 2016 UFo Super Late Model base point fund will be $27,300 based upon the current 20-race schedule. The 2016 UFo Super Late Model Champion is scheduled to receive $6,000, the highest payout ever for the championship. The top eight positions in the point standing will be paid, with a strong payoff through the ranks. Any additional sponsorship will increase the point fund. If a one-day program is not completed from the present slate of touring events, the total point fund will be reduced 5.5%. If both days of a two-day program are not completed, the total point fund will be reduced 9.2%.

    The UFo Champion of the all-new Semi-Late division is slated to receive $3,000 if the current 12-race schedule is completed. The Semi-Late division will also pay back eight positions, with a total point fund of $11,300. If any of the scheduled events are not completed, the total point fund will be reduced by 8.4% for each event. Any additional sponsorship will add money to this bonus fund.

    The 2016 UFo point fund is contingent upon fulfilment of all sponsor and track commitments. Each track is fully responsible for payment of their full event payoff as well as their portion of the point fund to the drivers. Any sponsorship commitments that are not fulfilled will be deducted from the total point fund. UFo point funds have traditionally been paid out within a month of season completion, as soon as all funds can be assembled.


    2016 UFo car and procedure rules are posted on the tour website. UFo Super Late Model rules include open, steel block, spec and CT525 crate motor options. 2016 rule changes include shock and suspension limits that are in line with national series rules. In 2016, steel block motors will be permitted a 10” spoiler instead of a weight break. A new 406 spec motor option has been added to accommodate those cars in the area.


    The new Semi-Late class follows the proven rules set that was initially developed at the Challenger Raceway for the class. Several revisions have been made to the initial set of rules that were originally posted on the UFo website in an attempt to align the UFo rules more closely with individual track rule for these cars. Limited 360, econo, steel block and crate motors will race together with spoiler and weight variances that will equalize the different motor combinations. Cars from each category have recorded top finishes over the years at the different tracks where this concept has been utilized.


    A few minor procedure changes have been made in 2016. Heat race bonus points have been replaced by a passing bonus in the feature. The driver(s) that advance the most positions in the feature will receive the 2 point bonus toward the championship. All restart will be double file as long as time and conditions permit.
