Rain halts Shawn McGarvey Showdown at Thunder Valley for UFo Race Championship!
Next Race July 3 at Tyler County!

Central City, PA (June 19) With the fourth and final qualifying heat race on the
track, rain showers arrived which forced the cancelation of the inaugural UFo Race
Championship event at Thunder Valley Raceway. A strong field of 31 UFo Super Late
Models has assembled at the wide 1/2 mile for the "Shawn McGarvey Showdown."
Officials will meet about rescheduling the "Shawn McGarvey Showdown" at TVR and
an announcement will be upcoming shortly. Per UFo Race Procedures, all drivers in
attendance will receive 70 attendance points.
John Mollick and Chad McClellan remain tied for the lead in the UFo Race Championship
point standings, as the Series champion will tentatively earn $5,000. Keith Barbara
is third, over Tommy Beck, and Danny Mitchell. Jim Kutas is sixth, with Doug Horton,
Jared Miley, Gary Dalton, and Tony Musolino completing the top ten.
The next UFo Race Championship event is scheduled for Saturday July 3 at the Tyler
County Speedway. The "Earl Hill Championship" will pay $5,000 to the winner of the
Area 51-lap UFo Super Late Model feature.
The UFo Race Championship is an event marketing alliance among supertracks in the
Pennova region (Western PA-Northern WV-Northeastern OH). Participating speedways
 present their own championship Super Late Model events under the UFo banner throughout
the season using common tech and procedure rules with a year-end, group funded,
point bonus for the top finishing drivers on the tour. Eligible tracks are within
the 3 hour travel distance of the central point of Washington, PA.
The UFo Race Championship Tour is proudly sponsored by Lias Tire/American Racer
of Indiana, PA, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic with distributors in Saxonburg, PA, Roaring
Springs PA and Finksburg, MD and Townsend Gas and Oil of Homer City, PA. 100% of
 their points fund sponsorship will be given to the top point standing drivers in
prize money and awards. More information on these sponsors may be found at http://www.hoosiermidatlantic.com
