This will be the fourth showing of the Big Ten UMP Late Model Series at Macon Speedway.

In the Midwest Big Ten Series, each of the ten races will include larger winnings to the winner of the feature.  At the end of the season the points each driver has accumulated in 8 out of 10 races will be totaled and there will be $5,000 distributed throughout the top ten Late Models with the top point fund winner taking home another $2,000!  As of now, Steve Sheppard, Jr. is in first place with a two-point lead over Matt Taylor, and six points over Brian Dively.
