Kennedy Motorsports ULMS
Super Late Model and Winged Super Sprints
Seventh Annual Red Miley Rumble
PITTSBURGH, PA — The Seventh Annual Red Miley Rumble is just a few short days away and the excitement surrounding the event continues to grow. The Kennedy Motorsports ULMS Super Late Model teams will make the trek south to battle the Diehl of Robinson Super Late Model competitors as well as a bevy of Late Model invaders in a 53 lap main event paying $5,053.00 to win.
The Winged Super Sprints will make their first appearance of 2013 as they tackle the high banks of “Dirt’s Monster Half Mile” in a 20-lap main event paying $2,053.00 to the victor. The Precise Racing Products RUSH Pro-Lates, Sunoco Race Fuels Late Model Sportsman, Miley BP Carwash Hobby Stock and Imperial Heights Garage Young Guns will also be in action.
The “Red Miley Rumble” is a tribute to former PPMS and Motordrome track owner Red Miley. Red was the leader of Miley Motor Sports until his passing. Red was born in 1953, and was 53 years old when he passed on May 3, 2007. The number “53” is significant throughout the event as indicated by the number of laps of the Super Late Model main event. In addition, position sponsorships in the amount of $53.00 have been purchased by local businesses, race fans and other marketing partners, further adding to the overall payout for both the Super Late Models and the Winged Super Sprints.
“We are looking forward to another action packed event showcasing both the Super Late Models and the Super Sprints,” commented Speedway Owner Matt Miley. “This event is designed to provide the racers in both divisions with additional money through the position sponsorships rather than just rewarding the leader of each lap. All of the drivers and their crews work hard on race day and throughout the week and we hope they appreciate the funds provided by our marketing partners.”
At press time over $4,000.00 has been added to the Super Late Model payoff by the positions sponsors. Imperial Tire and Automotive has also stepped forward and will award the Super Late Model driver who sets the evening’s quick time with a $100.00 Fast Time Award. Additional position sponsors will be taken right up until race time. Anyone interested in this affordable marketing opportunity which will further increase the payout should contact Matt Miley at firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 736-3142.

Jared Miley scored the RMR Super Late Model victory
South Park, PA driver Jared Miley claimed the biggest victory of his career to score the win in the 2012 edition of the Red Miley Rumble. Miley overcame misfortune at the start of last year’s main event to score the coveted victory in his Uncle’s Memorial Event. Keith Barbara, Keith Berner, Steve Baker, who was the victor here at PPMS last Saturday, and Mike Johnson completed the top five in last year’s main event and are expected to be in action this weekend.
World of Outlaws competitor Josh Richards claimed the laurels in the inaugural Red Miley Rumble that was held in 2007 and returned to Victory Lane for the 2010 running of the event as well. Baker was victorious in 2008, Bart Hartman scored the win in 2009 and Dave Johnson was the winner in 2011.
Mike Knight currently leads the Kennedy Motorsports ULMS Point Standings by 79 points over Boom Briggs and will lead the Northern Tier competitors to the Imperial, PA oval. Matt Urban, Russell King and Ron Davies round out the top five in the ULMS points chase and are also expected to battle for the win.
In addition to those mentioned above, defending PPMS Super Late Model Champion Michael Norris as well as current points leader Alex Ferree, Brandon Burgoon, Lynn Geisler and Jim Stephans will vie for the victory. Invaders such as Devin Moran, Keith Barbara, Michael Davis, B.A. Malcuit, Jacob Hawkins and Gregg Satterlee are always a threat to score the win when they stop by the Imperial, PA oval.
