Lucas Cattle Company ULMA drivers pulled into Lakeside Speedway last weekend for their first-ever appearance in the state of Kansas, and although the race was nine years in the making, the long wait didn’t dampen the excitement of participating drivers their fans, friends, and family, who came to see them compete at the iconic speed plant.
Eighteen ULMA drivers were among the more than 120 cars packed into the pits on Friday evening and with all the makings of an instant classic, the action did not disappoint throughout the night. For the late model contingent, there was a common vibe echoed among the drivers and their crews and that simply was, “we are just glad to finally be racing here.”
The drivers were sorted into three 6-car heat races, allowing plenty of space for drivers, many of whom were competing for their first time at the track to get the feel for the track. Long-time Kansas City racer Garry Billings had the honor of starting pole position for the first-ever ULMA heat race. However, from the drop of the green flag it appeared fellow front-row starter Bob King had the action well in command.
