Friday night, June 30th at Kankakee County Speedway not one, not two, but three different track records were established in three divisions.
The first qualifying mark to fall was that of Brandon Bollinger's UMP Pro Modified record of 16.309 set on 05/26/23. Deece Schwartz of Ashmore, IL laid down a lap of 16.277.
Next to go down was the mark of 16.730 in the UMP Stock Cars division held by Matt Hammond and recorded back on 09/29/17. Megan Erwin of Attica, IN lowered the mark to 16.711 in the Mike Alsop Chevrolet Racing 14 machine.
Finally, the UMP Factory Stocks record of 17.814 set by Nathan Arterberry just a few weeks ago on 06/09/23 was lowered by friendly rival Lee Joseph Hall to a new standard of 17.755.
Congratulations to all the new track record holders and their crews, and the work they put in off the track to accomplish these new speed standards.
