BTE WORLD FOOTBRAKE CHALLENGE - FINAL RESULTS

 

The 12th edition of the BTE World Footbrake Challenge presented by Yukon Gear & Axle came to a close today after what was thought to be a “challenging weather forecast” became a reality on Friday when the rains hit to cool things off both in temperature and racing. However, with the entire purse guaranteed, co-promoters Steve Stites and Jared Pennington decided to simply move the money over to make both the Saturday and Sunday races $15,000 to win rather than the posted Triple $10s.

In an effort to give back, and the complete understanding that oftentimes some… questionable language might be spoken after a hard loss, officials instituted a “Swear Jar” of sorts in the tower. All money collected was donated to ArmedForcesRacing.org, an organization started for the purpose of providing recreational therapy to veterans. Regardless of the “swear,” racers took to giving back to a worthy cause, with donations of over $600.red to allow them their opportunity.”

IT’S ALL IN THE FAMILY FOR THE CUMMINGS

 

In the racing world, it's not uncommon to see the proverbial racing bug be passed from one generation to the next. When a kid is raised at the track while a parent chases racing glory every weekend, it's impossible not to want to follow in those footsteps and live for the thrill of competition. The Cummings family is among the many racing families who have seen the racing bug affect newer generations, and what began as a one-racer team has expanded into a multigenerational operation. 

Starting with patriarch Larry Cummings, the team has grown to include his sons Slate and Britt and grandson Cole, and at NHRA races where all Sportsman classes are contested, the family will run seven race cars down the track: Larry in Super Stock, Slate in Stock and Super Stock, Britt in Stock and Super Comp, and Cole in Super Comp and Super Street. And it’s through Cole that the family’s racing legacy will continue.
