Culp called the deal with a Scott ‘a joke’ and says several drivers have been cheating, even after it’s pointed out to the officials
At the start of the season, Timothy Culp set out on the national dirt late model tour out of Prattsville, Arkansas. On May 19th, he dropped off the tour following a coming to Jesus moment on the side of the highway.
In the month of June, Culp ran 14 of the UMP Hell Tour events. His best finish came at Plymouth Speedway on June 17th. Culp finished 2nd in that event to another Arkansas native, Billy Moyer.
On June 30th, Timothy Culp posted an honest review of the current state of dirt late model racing. In that rant, he accused the race winner at Plymouth Speedway of cheating. He said his team pointed that out to the officials and claims those officials refused to do anything about it, even weeks later.
In the same post, Culp also called the Scott deal was a ‘joke’. Then went on to point out that drivers were able to race while suspended.
On July 9th, he listed a wide range of items for sale. The C8 toter was put on the market. It’s 2007 S&S with a 2006 Freightliner Columbia and 450 Mercedes, it was listed for $135,000.
He also listed two 2018 Rocket XR1 chassis. One of the cars was built in March and it was listed for $29,000. The other featured a wider range of brand new parts and was listed for $40,000.
Other items included an oil system for $5,000. A bulldog rearend was listed for $1,300. A Clements engine was also put on the market.
A 24′ enclosed trailer was listed for $11,000. That trailer was sold.
No events are listed on the drivers website for the rest of the 2018 racing season. However, Culp has stated that he’s not selling out.
Culp was unavailable for comment at the time of publication. You can ready the full post from Timmy Culp below.

“It’s really sad how political late models have become at the national level. The whole Scott deal is a joke. Guys have been able to race while on suspension. Multiple big races have been won lately by high profile drivers with some sort of trick or gimmick and all that is said is ‘don’t bring it back.’ ”
“I ran 2nd to a high profile driver about two weeks ago and brought it to the officials attention that he was running a Lr upper spring rod. Which is in black and white in the rules illegal.”
“Two weeks go by of several drivers asking to check this car out. Still nothing has been said to the illegal team and never will be because they would never do anything to taint his reputation. It’s sad that there is more rules enforced at the local level than the national level strictly off who you are.”
“If I were to walk out on a drug test, win a race with something visibly illegal, or test the waters while on probation I would would be painted black along with a lot of other guys because lack of status.”
