Rempfer Memorial Season Championship Night set for Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway

Lucas Oil Speedway's Rempfer Memorial Season Championship Night is set for Saturday, with champions determined in all four divisions. Cole Henson (21) will be looking to repeat his ULMA Late Model title in the closest points battle, as he's 35 in front of
WHEATLAND, MO. (Aug. 24, 2021) - Season champions will be crowned on Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway with the Rempfer Memorial Season Championship Night Presented by Bill Roberts Chevrolet-Buick concluding the regular season.
The closest of the four championship chases in the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series is in the ULMA Late Model division, where Cole Henson of Russellville holds a 35-point lead over Appleton City’s Johnny Fennewald. Henson, the reigning track champion, picked up 21 points last week with a third-place feature finish as Fennewald struggled to an 11th.
Henson followed up his solid run with a Sunday feature win at State Fair Speedway in Sedalia. He said it was a confidence booster in his Rob Schlup-owned Rocket XR1 that he debuted midseason. Henson also is leading the Lucas Cattle Company ULMA national points.
“With this new car, we did pick up a win at the lake (Lake Ozark Speedway) a couple of weeks ago and we’re still trying to get used to everything on it and get me used to it,” Henson said. “That win at Sedalia really built some confidence.
“It would be really awesome,” Henson added, when asked what a repeat title at Lucas Oil Speedway would mean. “We’ve had a fantastic season. Either way, and if something happens and we don’t get it, it’s still been a fantastic season. But it would be the cherry on top to bring home a championship and a ULMA one, too.
“Hopefully we can go out, keep our nose clean and bring it home.”
Henson has won two features at Lucas Oil Speedway this season and has 10 top-five finishes in 11 events.
Henson isn’t the only driver looking to celebrate multiple track championships. Kris Jackson of Lebanon has a 77-point lead over Springfield’s JC Morton in his attempt for a sixth Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod crown.
David Hendrix has an insurmountable 201-point lead in the first-year O’Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Car class. Hendrix, of Waynesville, is a past Street Stocks track champion.
A new champion will be crowned as the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modified division is decided. Dillon McCowan of Urbana appears to be in command there as he will begin action 65 points in front of Jason Pursley of Hermitage.
All four features will go 20 laps with both the feature winner and season champion recognized in victory-lane ceremonies on the front straightaway.
The championship program is named to honor Harold "Rowdy" Rempfer and his wife, Julia, who were killed in an automobile accident three years ago. Rowdy was the mayor of Wheatland and he and Julia both worked at Lucas Oil Speedway.
