NDRL Teams with UMP DIRTcar for Inaugural Events, Hoosier Racing Tire Joins NDRL
Pittsburgh, PA (February 26, 2013) The National Dirt Racing League has come to an agreement with UMP DIRTcar to co-sanction the inaugural 'Let's Get Dirty' weekend that will pay $20,000 to the winner at each of the two events at Paducah International Raceway in Paducah, KY and Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, MO on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30.
NDRL officials met with UMP Director Sam Driggers in Florida last week to solidify the partnership for the NDRL's inaugural weekend. 'With being in UMP territory we felt that having Sam and other UMP officials at our first shows was only fitting,' series owner John Kennedy stated. 'Sam will be there for technical inspection along with our own NDRL tech inspector as drivers will compete using the mandatory UMP Hoosier LM 20, LM 30, and LM 40 tires.' Both events will also serve as UMP point's events.
