PPMS Releases 2010 Tentative Schedule
Officials of Miley Motor Sports have assembled an exciting 2010 schedule of events
for Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway. The 2010 "Total Special Event" schedule features
championship racing events or exciting fan promotions on virtually every event.
The season will kick off with an open practice on Saturday, March 27 followed by
the the "2010 Blastoff" season opener on Saturday, April 3. Weekly Saturday night
racing in 2010 will feature the Super Late Models, Semi-Lates (formerly Pro-Lates),
E-mods, Cadets (formerly Sportsman), Hobby (formerly Factory Stock) and Young Gun
Rules for all classes have been posted for the upcoming season on the track website
and are highly compatible with other area track's rules. Officials are very excited
about the new GM 525 motor option for Super Late Models. Race teams will be able
to compete in the Super Late Model class for approximately $9,000 in motor costs.
The Spec motor program has been a key to keeping the Super Late Model division
on track at PPMS, and the even lower cost GM 525 motor should continue that trend
well into the future by allowing more race teams to remain in the class long-term.
Headlining the 2010 schedule are 4 UFo Race Championship events. PPMS will continue
to operate as the home-base track of the UFo tour. The "Red Miley 53" will take
place on Saturday, May 15, with the "F-2" Shockwave on Saturday, July 24 and the
"PENNational" on Saturday, August 28. The annual "Pittsburgher/Ultimate" is scheduled
for the traditional 3rd weekend in September. 3 of those events will be co-sanctioned
with the United Late Model Series from the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania including
"The Pittsburgher." The 2009 UFo events at PPMS produced some of the most exciting
racing in the track's history.
The BRP Tour for Big Block Modifieds return on Saturday, May 29 for "Modisaurus-X."
This event will be an open wheel bonanza with the UEMS/TSMA E-mods also in competiton
for a championship race. A full racing program including the Super Late Models
will round out the racing program.
The 410 Super Sprints will invade PPMS on Saturday, July 10 for the "Flight of the
Phoenix." The winged warriors produce incredible speeds on the Monster Half-Mile,
unlike anywhere else. This program will also feature all divisions including Super
At least 2 championship, extra-distance events have been scheduled for the Semi-Lates,
E-mods, Cadets, Hobby & Young Gun divisions during the regular racing season, in
addition to "The Pittsburgher/Ultimate." The "Semi-Late Grand Prix" is scheduled
for June 12 with the annual "Jook George Championship" on August 14. The E-mods
will take place in the UEMS/TSMA face-off as part of "Modisaurus-X" on May 29 with
the TSMA "E-mod Tri-State Challenge" on July 31. The "Cadet Frenzoid" will take
place on April 24 with the "Cadet Thunder Run" scheduled for Labor Day weekend,
September 4. The Hobby & Young Gun divisions will compete in their "Spring & Fall
Trophy Championships" on April 17 and September 11.
Free grandstand admission will also return to PPMS in 2010. On designated nights,
the residents of all surrounding counties, West Virginia and Ohio will be admitted
to the grandstands for free.
The Wacky Wheels Figure-8 class will also be returning to PPMS in 2010 for 4 events.
This 4-cylinder, strictly stock class provides daredevil drivers a very low-cost
way to compete at PPMS.
The season will come to a summit on September 16-17-18 with the 22nd annual "Pittsburgher/Ultimate."
The UFo Super Late Models co-sanctioned by ULMS will headline the weekend's events.
The new 2009 format produced the most amazing "Pittsburgher" ever and an equally
outstanding "Ultimate." Bart Hartman passed a total of 28 cars in the feature
events to sweep the twin 51-lap races, carrying home the biggest prize ever paid
at PPMS. The Semi-Lates, UEMS/TSMA E-mods and Cadets will compete in companion
Super Championship events along with the Hobby & Young Gun divisions.
Before the 2008 and 2009 racing seasons, Miley Motor Sports has added new clay to
the Monster Half-Mile as well as reconfigure the track banking. The result has been
top-to-bottom, 3 and 4 wide racing on the 100 foot wide surface. The past off season
is no exception, as even more new clay was hauled in to continue the excellent competition
Pittsburgh's PA Motor Speedway is located just west of Pittsburgher off US 22/30
at the Noblestown Exit. Complete track information may be obtained at the track
website. More information can also be obtained by calling 412-279-7223 weekdays.
