In a normal checkpoint in Karabilah, Iraq, an insurgent leaped out and attacked Cpl. Dunham. During their struggle, he saw the insurgent release a grenade. Cpl. Dunham immediately then alerted his fellow Marines to the threat. Without hesitation, Cpl. Dunham covered the grenade with his helmet and body. He absorbed the brunt of the explosion and shielded his Marines from the blast.
In an ultimate and selfless act of bravery, in which he was mortally wounded, he saved the lives of at least two fellow Marines. He died eight days later from his wounds. USMC Corporal Jason Dunham is a True American Hero that will never be forgotten by the race fans and family of the Dunham family in western New York.
In the previous round of ULMS action at Freedom, Dave Scott held off a late race challenge from Chub Frank and Dave Hess to take the victory. Max Blair currently leads the ULMS points as they get ready to kick off their ‘Speedweek’ events at the Old Bradford Speedway on June 30th.

TWIN TRACK SERIES FOR SUPER LATE MODELS AT FREEDOM & STATELINE
-Point Fund in place for top ten-
DELEVAN, NY…..Freedom Motorsports Park and the New Stateline Speedway are happy to announce a ‘Twin Track Series’ program for the Super Late Model division. The Friday night events at Freedom Motorsports Park and selected Saturday events at New Stateline Speedway will award points to Super Late Model drivers, with a point fund payoff in place for the top ten in the standings at the end of the season.
“We put this together with the promotional team at Stateline as a way of rewarding and providing an incentive to the Super Late Model teams,” said Freedom Motorsports Park promoter Bob Reis. “The races in the series make for a nice two-night swing several times during the year, without having to run two-night weekends for a full season.”
The series champion will win $1,500. Full details of race dates, point structures, and point fund breakdowns will be released shortly.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 15, 2019
LATE MODEL RACING TAKES HEADLINE STATUS AT FREEDOM MOTORSPORTS PARK IN 2019
-Season Opener scheduled for Friday, May 10th–
DELEVAN, NY…..Anticipation is building for the return of Super Late Model racing to Freedom Motorsports Park as the 2019 Season Opener, presented by JRM Equipment and R.G Mason Auction, looms on the horizon. The 1/3 mile clay oval in Delevan, NY will begin its 2019 schedule on Friday, May 10th at 7:30 p.m.
After a few seasons with Big Block/Small Block Modifieds as the headline division for a weekly program, Freedom Motorsports Park promoter Bob Reis decided late last year to make a change to the speedway’s program for this season. “It was a combination of things,” Reis stated. “There’s lots of competition for Modified car count and fan count around the area, and when we ran Super Late Model specials we noticed quite a bump in attendance. With Eriez not opening in 2019 as a weekly venue, the opportunity presented itself to create a smaller schedule based on the Super Late Models as a headline division, and based on the driver and fan support for the class, we decided to go in that direction. Late Model racing has been an important part of Freedom’s history and we’re excited about bringing it back as a feature attraction.”
The 2019 schedule features eight races, all on Friday nights, with a card that includes DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks (FWD/RWD), and Bandits supporting the Super Late Model division. Three of the Super Late Model events will be under ULMS sanction, while the June 7th event features a stop for the BEI Lightning Crate Sportsman Series. The Big Block/Small Block Modifieds will return to be co-headliners on Setpember 7th as part of the annual ‘Big Dog’ event with the Super Late Models, and the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints will be joined by the Hoosier NY6A 600 Sprint division for a ‘Winged Warriors’ night on July 26th.
“We’ve come up with a schedule that has something special or different each race night,” Reis stated. “So far the response has been tremendous and we’re feeling really good about how the year’s going to go…our goal is to provide a great night of racing that can be enjoyed by racers and fans that makes them look forward to coming back for the next show.”

2019 Freedom Registration Info
The following Registration Forms are required to be filled out and submitted to the track (along with any applicable fee) before you will be allowed to compete at Freedom Motorsports Park. The forms are located at the bottom of the track’s homepage page at http://www.freedommotorsportspark.com/
*Driver Info Sheet
*Foar Score Application
The Registration fee prior to May 1 is $35 ($20-car/$15 Foar Score) for super late model, sportsman, Street Stocks or Mini Stocks. If you have a current Foar Score membership, you will only be required to pay $20. The Foar Score fee is to receive point fund money.
The Registration fee starting May 1 (opening night) will be $40 ($25-car/$15 Foar Score). We recommend you register before opening night to avoid the $5 increase and to speed up the opening night process.
Sportsman competitors will run under Dirtcar in 2019 and will be required to purchase a Dirtcar license. Dirtcar forms and information may be obtained online at www.dirtcarmembers.com.
THIS IS MANDATORY FOR ALL SPORTSMAN COMPETITORS IN 2019! PLEASE READ, AND ANY QUESTIONS CAN BE HANDLED BY CONTACTING BOB OR EMAILING THE TRACK AT Freedommotorsportspark@yahoo.
DIRTcar Racing Membership Required for All
All Division drivers must have a DIRTcar License to participate
and receive benefits
CONCORD, N.C. – March 2, 2017 – Starting with the first events of 2017, any participants of a
DIRTcar-sanctioned event will be required to hold a DIRTcar Racing membership. Any division
without 100 percent membership participation will be at risk of violating the sanction agreement
and suspension of the sanction by DIRTcar Racing.
A one-night weekly sanctioned track temporary membership (for the traveling racer) will be
accepted provided the driver completes the full application. However, temporary one-event
memberships do not qualify for Regional and National points, insurance and appeal benefits
provided to full DIRTcar members or Series events.
The practice of a mandatory membership is common in sports, including motorsports, creating a
mutually beneficial relationship between the drivers and the point fund, rule book, official
decisions and appeals.
DIRTcar members participate in state, regional and national divisional point funds for drivers and
tracks; where in 2016, over $550,000.00 was distributed to members. Members also receive
discounted entry fees and/or discounted pit entry fees at selected events.
One benefit that every driver hopes never to take advantage of is the $50,000 DIRTcar Member
Benefit Supplemental Participant Accident Policy over a track supplied deductible of $15,000.
Boom Briggs, a Late Model Driver and DIRTcar Racing Member sustained an injury during the
2016 season that sidelined him for more than two months. A recent DirtonDirt.com article
highlighted the benefits he received from his DIRTcar membership, and how happy he was to
have had them.
“I got a check for $3,200 a couple weeks ago from [World Racing Group’s] insurance company,”
said Briggs to DirtonDirt.com. “Thankfully my wife had good [health] insurance I’m under, but [the
insurance from World Racing Group] took every out-of-pocket expense I had and paid it. They
covered all my deductibles, all my co-pays, the emergency room, my therapies, I’ve had to pay
zero [overall] because of that. I want that mentioned because I’m very, very thankful for that.
That’s why I’ll always buy that DIRTcar UMP license… to qualify for that insurance.”
