On February 19 the UPR Sales Trailer rolled into South Georgia Motorsports Park for our first race of the year. Lights Out V hosted by “the Duck” (Donald Long) has become a major event in the Outlaw, X275, and Ultra Street world. Upon arriving, I was really happy to see the track was crowded with racers on Wednesday! The UPR Products sales trailer was set up by noon and sales began almost immediately. We had several new products on display including our travel limiter kit, 4 position AN Billet wrench, tubular oil pan savers, and GM G-body Pro Series rear suspension.
South Georgia is a hotbed of racing activity and we got to say hi to many of our UPR racers as well as our friend and Team UPR racer Jose Rivera (Freakin Rican from Street Outlaws on Discovery Channel). Great weather contributed to record breaking performances, foremost of which was the fastest-in-history 275 drag radial run by Team UPR racer David Pearson in his ProCharger-equipped Mustang coupe. His 4.24 second at 171 mph run was highlighted by a 1.10 60 foot time utilizing a 6 year old UPR Pro Series Rear Suspension!!
Although rain on Sunday curtailed racing, Saturday’s perfect weather generated a record spectator turnout. Outlaw and 275X racing has a tremendous following and Team UPR will be attending most major events including the Yellow Bullet Nationals and the Duck’s fall event.
