The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series released its first look at the 2022 schedule Thursday, with 24 events scheduled for the upcoming season.
The season will begin on March 5 with the 9th Annual Tennessee Tip Off at Smoky Mountain Speedway, an event which ULTIMATE will co-sanction alongside the Valvoline Iron-Man Late Model Series. The race will pay $12,000 to the winner, the first of several five-digit paydays for ULTIMATE competitors in 2022.
Two weeks later, the tour will make its first trip to Boyd's Speedway in Georgia for The Shamrock, paying $5,000 to win. That will lead into a busy April, with stops at Carolina Speedway, Lake View Motor Speedway, County Line Raceway and Modoc Raceway.
A pair of doubleheader weekends are on tap in May for the ULTIMATE Super Late Models. First, the series will do a double in the Palmetto State, with the Ronnie Brookshire Memorial at Laurens County Speedway followed by a $5,000-to-win affair at Lancaster Speedway. On May 20-21, ULTIMATE makes a stop on the Road to Jamaica at Natural Bridge Speedway before the $20,000-to-win King of the Commonwealth. The month closes with the $7,500-to-win Big Chief 50 at Cherokee Speedway on Memorial Day.
Another doubleheader weekend awaits competitors on June 3-4, as ULTIMATE heads to Georgia for a Friday night show at Toccoa Raceway and Dixie Speedway on Saturday night. There will be a brief break before ULTIMATE gets back on track on June 25 at Sumter Speedway, a venue which hosted its first ULTIMATE event in 2021.
There are currently three July dates on the ULTIMATE schedule. A Lavonia-Senoia doubleheader on July 1-2 kicks off the month, while the series will return to Lancaster on July 9.
August brings another Natural Bridge-Virginia doubleheader as part of USA 100 weekend, with the USA 100 also paying $20,000 to win. ULTIMATE returns to Lake View on August 13 for the Dirt Track Throwback, then heads to Friendship Motor Speedway on August 27.
ULTIMATE completes the Lancaster hat trick on September 3 with the Working Man 40. The series will also make a return trip to Modoc Raceway for the Clark's Hill Classic on September 24. Currently, the season is scheduled to close at Toccoa Raceway on October 14-15 with the $10,000-to-win Highbanks Hustle.
The series has labeled this a "working" schedule, tentative, subject to change with the potential of more race dates. Stay tuned to ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series' social media platforms and Racing America for updates heading into the 2022 season.
