Diamond Mountain hosts May 29, 30 Racing For a Reason

VERNAL, Utah – The inaugural Racing for a Reason Rumble at Diamond Mountain Speedway boasts a pair of $1,000 to win features for IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds this Friday and Saturday, May 29 and 30.

Racing for a Reason Rumble is designed to be an annual event and help various recipients in need. The 2015 recipient is six-year-old Kaden McCormick of Roosevelt, Utah, who is in need of another kidney transplant.

Both Modified features are 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifiers and pay a minimum of $125 to start.

Twenty Modifieds will take the green flag in each 20-lap main event. IMCA SportMods will race for $500 to win and $75 to start each night.

The Buy a Lap Challenge will also be held. It will be $20 a lap and half the earnings will go toward the Kaden McCormick’s kidney transplant fund; the other half will go to the driver who leads that lap.

Racing starts at 7 p.m. both nights set at Vernal.

Regular grandstand admission is $8 for adults. Hill parking is $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and children ages 5 to 12 years old and free for five and under.
