NIGHTLY UMP SUMMER NATIONALS RESULTS FOR #99JR
(June 17, 2018) The first week of the grueling "Hell Tour" wrapped up tonight with a visit to Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana. Frank Heckenast, Jr., who dropped a new motor in for today's activities in the Hoosier State, qualified sixth quickest in his group during time trials and later ran fifth in his loaded heat race. Frankie then steered his #99jr mount past seven competitors during the $5,000 to win headliner on his way to finishing seventh in the 40-lap affair.

(June 16, 2018) Next up on the UMP Summer Nationals grind was a visit to the pristine Dirt Oval at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois where another $10,000 winner's check was up for grabs. Frank Heckenast, Jr. knocked down the second quickest lap in his group during qualifying before taking the win in heat race action. He was then running third early in the 30-lapper before unfortunately hurting a motor, which dropped him to twenty-first at the pay window at Joliet - a racetrack that is promoted by his sister Sherri Heckenast.

(June 15, 2018) The third leg of the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals was held earlier this evening at Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Illinois and a $10,000 payday was on the line. In the richest Super Late Model event ever at the 55-year old facility, Frank Heckenast, Jr. posted the ninth quickest lap in Group A during qualifying and later steered up to second in his loaded heat race. After starting the 55-lap main event from the inside of the third row, Frankie unfortunately spun on two different occasions trying to miss a car that had spun in front of him. He eventually wound up a disappointing twenty-first in the final finishing order tonight at Sycamore.

(June 14, 2018) Night two of the "Hell Tour" featured a complete $5,000 to win program at Kankakee County Speedway in Kankakee, Illinois. Frank Heckenast, Jr. knocked down the second fastest lap in his group during time trials before scoring an impressive victory in his heat race. After drawing the third starting position prior to the drop of the green flag in the 40-lap main event, Frankie hung around the lead pack before ultimately finishing sixth at the checkered flag behind only winner Shannon Babb, Billy Moyer, Brian Shirley, Rusty Schlenk, and Mike Spatola.

(June 13, 2018) The 2018 edition of the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour kicked off tonight at Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois and the #99jr team was in attendance to do battle for the $5,000 paycheck. Frank Heckenast, Jr. clicked off the fourth quickest time in Group B during qualifying prior to running second in his heat race. After starting the 40-lapper from the outside of the fourth row, Frankie slipped back a few spots during the "Hell Tour" lid lifter to finish in the thirteenth position.

FRANK HECKENAST, JR. SIXTH IN DREAM XXIV PRELIM!
(June 10, 2018) Frank Heckenast, Jr. and his #99jr team trekked to Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 7-9 for the annual running of the 'Dirt Late Model Dream.' After Thursday night's $5,000 to win prelim was pushed back to Friday afternoon due to rain showers, Frankie finished sixth in his heat race, third in his B-Main, and twenty-second in the 25-lap daytime sprint. Later that evening, Frankie scored the victory in his heat race prior to nabbing a solid sixth place effort in the $10,000 to win headliner. At the "Big E" on Saturday, Frankie wound up tenth in his loaded heat race and eighth in his B-Main, which unfortunately kept him out of the $100,000 to win 'Dirt Late Model Dream.'
