I heard that Bloomer is racing the UMP series this year. I wonder when UMP comes this way to Farmer City and Fairbury and etc if he even plans to show up. What do you all think?

What I had heard was he was going to run outlaw and then run for the UMP summernats crown. I suspect he may be trying to get show up money since he is (like him or not) the big draw for UDTRA. As for running for the UMP summernats crown, I find it hard to believe he would be willing to miss so many other bigger money shows. This will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Add one more thing into the equation......
The "rumored" $100,000 to win the UMP National Championship.......

Whoooaa! That does add a whole new perspective! I wasn't aware of that. Is that for the overall UMP season or just the summernats? Thanks racenut.

I have not seen it myself, but supposedly
the last UMP newsletter mentioned the year-long National Championship will pay $100,000??? to the winner....just like that, with 3 question marks behind it.
And I heard from another source recently that an official announcement is coming VERY shortly, like by next week......

Racenut, in my latest Natl Dirt Digest, it says Memmer is planning on a $100,000 bonus for both the summernats champ AND the season long national champ. Wow! It is hinging on securing a major sponsor which he supposedly has lined up but is waiting on the money.

This could pull more than just Bloomer away from Udtra. Me thinks they better line up a title sponsor soon!!!
