Jesse Lowe of Crossville will receive the United Championship Racing Alliance - UCRA 2019 National Points Championship $5,000 prize Saturday at the awards luncheon along with the Top 5 in points at the Western Sizzlin’ Steakhouse Restaurant in Jasper, Tn. off I-24 at Exit 155 at 1 p.m. CST/2 p.m. EST.
Lowe whom "hit for the cycle" garnered eight Top Five finishes last season, held off 2018 Rookie of the Year Michael Courtney of Knoxville for the championship, only finished outside the Top 5 once the entire season en-route to his first National Points Championship
Kenny Kizzar of Sale Creek, Tn. will be honored as the UCRA second runner up. Kenny’s been a mainstay with the UCRA since its inception in 2015 and has finished third overall in the points for the past two seasons. Georgia's Seth Wimpey won the $1,000 Rookie of the Year title and like the champion receives a custom Hoosier Racing Tire jacket from Hoosier Tire South. Alabama's Rod Carroll finished fifth in the points and will be honored as well
In 2019 only one racer earned multiple victories on the tour of nine events. Michael Courtney chased points champion Jesse Lowe the entire season, winning back to back August UCRA Main Events. Along with Lowe and Wimpey (whom took the season opening "Bama Brawl" in March) Sam Seawright (Alabama), Cory Hedgecock (Tennessee), J.T. Seawright (Alabama), Jason Welshan (Tennessee) and Zach Sise (Tennessee) all picked up victories that posted nearly $90,000 cash purse prize totals for the season.
The UCRA also produced nine different Fast Qualifiers with no repeaters at their 2019 events.
