Dominator Late Model Nose Legal for DIRTcar and World of Outlaws
CONCORD, NC — December 21, 2011 — DIRTcar announced today that Dominator Race Products has become the exclusive molded plastic nose supplier for DIRTcar sanctioned UMP Modified competition, effective immediately. Dominator has made a multi-year commitment to support the UMP Modified and UMP Limited Modified divisions, including the Summit Racing Equipment Modified Nationals. Modified competitors will continue to have the option of running hand-fabricated aluminum noses.
“We are excited to welcome Dominator to our family of partners,” said Sam Driggers, Director of UMP DIRTcar Racing. “They recently approached us with plans to develop a new molded plastic modified nose and we worked with them through the design process to ensure that it met our rules and provided our teams with a viable alternative to aluminum noses. We are very pleased with the result and believe that our racers will be as well.”
The Dominator modified nose is available for purchase in kit form or as components (left, right and center), and is available in 7 colors including – red, white, blue, black, yellow, orange, & purple. Kits will be available through 250+ dealers across the USA.
DIRTcar UMP and World of Outlaws officials have also worked with Dominator to make adjustments to the Dominator late model nose, most notably the removal of the triangles along the leading edge. Dominator late model noses without the triangles are approved for use in all DIRTcar UMP Late Model and World of Outlaws Late Model sanctioned competition in 2012. Late Model competitors who attend events with older noses and choose not to remove the triangles may be subject to a 25 pound weight penalty.
“This announcement should put to rest much of the recent speculation about whether or not Dominator nose and flare products would be legal for the 2012 season for UMP DIRTcar and World of Outlaws competitors,” said Bentley Shaw, President of Dominator Race Products. “In particular we are very excited about the feedback we have been receiving from competitors who have seen our new modified nose. We believe that it maintains the aggressive look of a traditional modified, while giving competitors an easy to mount, and more durable alternative to aluminum.”
