Here you will find all of the latest updates for the UMTR North.
The venue for our race on September 4th has changed. As many know, Pacemakers will not be opening this season. The race we had scheduled there on 9/4/21 has been moved to Quaker City Motorsports Park in Salem, OH. This will be the second North/South race of the season. This race will have a guaranteed minimum payout of $1,000 to the QuickStick winner and $500 to the StreetStick winner. The higher the car count, the higher the payout.
****BANQUET UPDATE FROM DARLENE:
The UMTR North Champions banquet has been cancelled for this year. I am very sorry to share this, but with the lack of member participation, which is totally understandable with the ongoing pandemic, or maybe it was the cost increase we are not even close to the minimum required guest count, the decision was made to cancel. I feel bad for those that wanted to attend, but especially to our champions! I will personally go to the tower at every race we have and make sure that our Quick Stick Champion, Larry Kortkamp and our Street Stick Champion Jim Wilson are recognized. To those of you that mailed checks, I can either return them to you, but with the mail service being a bit in a tizzy right now I would hope you would trust me to just shred your checks! Those of you that paid via PayPal I will start the process to send your money back to you. I really had hope we could pull the banquet off and start the year celebrating, but unfortunately this was not to be. Everyone stay safe and healthy! Any questions please feel free to reach out to me.
Our race at Thompson on June 5th has been moved to July 31st at the tracks request. We have added a third race at Thompson as well as a race at Dragway 42. We are waiting to find out if Pacemakers will be running this season. If they are, we are looking to add a second race date there. Other than that, our schedule is finished for the 2021 season.
***URGENT UPDATE ON BANQUET*****
Due to the circumstances with the ongoing pandemic it is with much sadness to say we will need to postpone the upcoming champions banquet. We are looking into dates late February to middle of March. First and foremost the health and safety of everyone is our first concern, so please understand this decisions has not come easily. Please advise Darlene @ 216-244-1304 or via Facebook messenger on whether you would like us to hold your money or issue a refund. This is not what we had hoped for, but will try our best to Celebrate our Champions.
Just a friendly reminder that the deadline to RSVP for the 2020 Banquet is fast approaching! Please RSVP with payment no later than January 11th. No tickets will be sold at the door. We as that if possible, please send your payment via PayPal as the postal service is still very behind from the holiday season. You can contact Darlene Hrdlicka to get the correct PayPal information for banquet payments. Any questions, feel free to reach out to either of us. See everyone in a couple weeks!
Our partial 2021 schedule has been posted. Check back for additional dates.
