Two-Time Champ Boom Briggs Finds NDRL’s ULMS Success Again

July 24, 2013 (Bear Lake, PA) The National Dirt Racing League’s United Late Model Series (ULMS) Speedweek made stops at four local tracks this past week, including McKean County Raceway, Lernerville Speedway, Sharon Speedway, and Eriez Speedway. Each night would showcase a 30-Lap event, paying $3,000 to the victor. Defending, Two-Time Champion Boom Briggs and his #99 Super Late Model were all set for the four night swing, but Mother Nature had other plans in store.

Thursday evenings show at McKean County Raceway was greeted by rain showers which unfortunately forced the postponement of the event until this Friday, July 26. Things were not looking much better for Friday’s show at one of the nation’s premier dirt track facilities – Lernerville Speedway. The skies darkened and the raindrops began to fall just as hot laps were to begin. Fortunately, it was only a quick shower and racing began after a slight delay. Boom lined up on the outside pole of his heat race. After a slight hiccup on the start, which also brought out the caution, Boom was moved to the back of the pack. He overcame the poor start and drove to a 5th place transfer spot, positioning him for a 14th place starting slot in the A-main. The white #99 Rocket Chassis was working excellent and Boom moved steadily forward, finishing in fourth place.

On Saturday, the tour moved to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, OH. Things once again did not look good, as weather forced another rain delay. Things finally got under way, and Boom would come home third in his heat race. After the redraw, Boom and crew would learn that the pole position had their name on it. The car was filled with VP Racing Fuel, some adjustments made to the Rocket Chassis, and a set of freshly grooved and siped Hoosier Racing Tires were mounted on the car. All that remained now was for the “Bear Lake Banzai” to do his job, and that he did. Leading all 30-laps while holding off several late-race charges from some formidable competition, Boom would state “Wow that was a fun race, the car worked great. I needed this.” He continued “We have struggled a bit this year, so it’s good to finally get back to Victory Lane.”

Sunday’s visit to Eriez Speedway was not as successful. Boom wheeled the car to a seventh place finish at the 3/8 mile oval. He looks to rebound this Friday at McKean County Raceway’s conclusion of the ULMS Speedweek. For more information, visit and
