  1. Osky, Silver Dollar, The Hunt on tap for USMTS after summer break With a little more than three weeks to rejuvenate, repair and refocus, the drivers and teams of the United States Modified Touring Series are getting set to embark on the most grueling grind in dirt track racing. It doesn’t seem possible, but just 29 nights of racing remain on the 2019 schedule for the Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship powered by Summit. The next event is slated for Wednesday, July 17, when the series returns to the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa, for the 12th Annual USMTS Summer Classic presented by Keyser Manufacturing. From there, the action shifts to the 9th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals presented by Swift Springs on Friday and Saturday, July 19-20, at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with a two-segment feature race paying $1,000 to win each segment on Friday, followed by Saturday’s finale which pays $8,000 to the winner and at least $500 to every main event starter. Not to mention our dancing partner for the weekend—the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, which will be gunning for a $53,000 top prize in their final showdown of the weekend. The ‘Silver Dollar’ will carry even more weight as it is the final event of the season in both the MSD Performance USMTS Mid-American Series and Spike Hardcore Energy USMTS Northern Lights Series. The season’s fourth regional series—the Casey’s General Stores Hunt for the USMTS National Championship—begins Thursday, August 1, at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan.: Aug. 1 ... 81 Speedway, Park City, Kan.

But it will be more than a full month before we will know who the 2019 USMTS National Champion will be. The final national points race happens during the 2nd Annual Summit USMTS Southern Nationals at the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, Thursday-Saturday, Oct. 31-Nov. 2. This will also be the final points race in the Summit Racing Equipment USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD Performance. One final blockbuster remains with a special two-day, non-points event on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15-16, at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan. Friday will be the 3rd Annual Park City Chisholm Trail Showdown with a $3,000-to-win feature race. On Saturday, it will be final crown jewel of the year and season finale as the 81 Speedway hosts the 4th Annual Grant Junghans Memorial with a $10,000 top prize up for grabs on Saturday, Nov. 16—one day before Grant’s birthday.

  2. Gustin outduels Mars to score second Masters victory NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (June 15)--Ryan Gustin battled mechanical gremlins from the time he left his home in Marshalltown, Iowa, on Thursday afternoon through early Saturday evening, but when the big money was on the line Saturday night 'The Reaper' exorcised the demons and bolted to his second Masters title in three years. Courtesy of USMTS PRAfter a tight three-way battle between early leader Jake Timm and Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Jimmy Mars, Gustin finally passed Mars with ten laps remaining and then drove away to score another crown jewel victory and a $10,000 winner's check."It feels good," Gustin said in victory lane. "Any time you can outrun Jimmy Mars at his home race track you've done something right.Mars led the opening lap but conceded the top spot to Timm the second time around the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval.Timm set a torrid pace for the next 18 circuits while Mars and Gustin used every inch of the race track to keep pace with the second-generation speedster.Mars zoomed ahead of Timm on lap 20 and Gustin followed into second place three laps later, setting up a two-car battle between one of Cedar Lake Speedway's most decorated and experienced racers and the 28-year-old two-time USMTS national champion.Gustin snuck past Mars briefly to lead the 27th lap but jumped the cushion in the ensuing corner to give Mars the advantage the next time around.Mars remained in control through heavy lapped traffic and 39 laps, but Gustin proved to be too much with his patented rim-riding exhibition and snagged the lead as they completed lap 40.The rest of the 50-lapper was all Gustin."It was a blast, man. That's the most fun I've had in a race car in a long time. It was an up-on-the-wheel deal. Jimmy could pull down on the race track better than we could, but we just let it all hang out up on that cushion and it worked out."The hefty paycheck will also come in handy to keep Gustin rolling down the road with his No. 19R Spike Hardcore Energy Hughes Chassis which is powered by nearby Tri Star Engines. En route to the race on Thursday, Gustin's hauler blew out two tires and he barely made it in time for hot laps.He failed to finish Thursday's main event as well as Friday's rain-delayed feature that ran during the early evening prior to the regular Saturday night program.In addition to his winnings, Gustin also garnered a set of four new springs courtesy of Swift Springs, plus contingency awards from Fast Shafts, Maxima Racing Oils and VP Racing Fuels. He also picked up a new American Racer racing tire during a drawing at the pre-race driver's meeting.For Mars, it was a successful weekend by most standards but likely left some unfinished business on the table with two runner-up finishes to two cars with the number 19 on the door after leading the most laps in two of the three feature races this weekend.Defending Masters champ Rodney Sanders claimed the third spot with Jake O'Neil beating Timm to the checkered flag for fourth. Zack VanderBeek, Dereck Ramirez, Terry Phillips, R.C. Whitwell and Adam Hensel rounded out the top ten.The top three finishers (from left to right): Second-place Jimmy Mars, winner Ryan Gustin and third-place finisher Rodney Sanders. Tyler Rinken photoHamilton County Hundred? Gustin will be seeking his 100th career USMTS victory when the Spike Hardcore Energy USMTS Northern Lights Series returns to action on Friday, June 21, at the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa.On Saturday, June 22, the show hits the road to the Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, Minn., before wrapping up the three-state, three-day weekend swing on Sunday, June 23, at the Park Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, S.D.To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit USMTS.com.

  3. Phillips reels in rain-delayed USMTS Friday feature Saturday at Masters NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (June 15)--The last USMTS win for Terry Phillips came last November in a rain-shortened Summit USMTS Southern Nationals, and his next came in a rain-delayed 40-lap feature Saturday evening at the Cedar Lake Speedway during the conclusion of night #2 of the 20th Annual Masters presented by Allstar Performance. Courtesy of USMTS PRA heavy downpour around 10 p.m. Friday night forced officials to postpone the main events for both the USMTS Modifieds and Super Late Models until Saturday around 5 p.m. Lance Hofer won the USRA Late Model feature Friday before the rains came.So Saturday kicked off with a $5,000-to-win main event in the Spike Hardcore Energy USMTS Northern Lights Series with Phillips standing in victory lane in the end.Defending Masters champion Rodney Sanders sat on the pole for the start of the race but it was Dereck Ramirez squirting into the lead from the outside of the front row.While Ramirez led the first 30 laps, Sanders was relentless in his pursuit. Both drivers tested every inch of the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval's surface before Phillips came into the picture near the halfway mark.The trio were three-wide when Phillips made the pass coming out of turn four, with Ramirez going from first to third in the blink of an eye. By the time they came to the flagstand again, Phillips had a commanding lead and cruised to his 27th career USMTS triumph and first of the 2019 campaign.Sanders held on for second with Ramirez third and Michael Truscott finishing fourth in just his second career USMTS start. Brad Waits was fifth while Jimmy Mars, Jason Hughes, Thursday night winner Dustin Sorensen, Adam Hensel and Darrell Nelson rounded out the top ten.The third and final program of the 20th Annual Masters kicks off Saturday night with a complete program culminating in the ferocious finales which offer $10,000 to the winners of both the Super Late Model and USMTS Modified main events on Saturday night. USRA Late Models will also run a complete program with a $1,000-to-win feature race on tap.Watch every lap in every division LIVE online at RacinDirt.com.The Cedar Lake Speedway is a state-of-the-art 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval located 1.0 mile east of SR 35 on SR 64, then 4.2 miles north on CR C to CR CC, then left 1.8 miles.

  4. Sorensen the USMTS Master on opening night at Cedar Lake NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (June 13)--Three nights of fierce racing kicked off Wednesday with opening night at the 20th Annual Masters presented by Allstar Performance at the Cedar Lake Speedway, and the competitors will be hard-pressed to exceed the bar they set tonight.A spectacular 40-lap main event saw Jimmy Mars steal the lead from Dereck Ramirez just shy of the halfway point and Dustin Sorensen rip the win from Mars' hands with just two laps to go.Ramirez, who started next to Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Clayton Wagamon on the front row, took control at the waving of the green flag and stayed out front for the first 17 laps while Wagamon, Mars and Zack VanderBeek grappled for second place.Finding the high side to his liking, Mars powered around the outside of Ramirez to assume the lead position with 18 laps in the books, and continued to set a torrid pace on a smooth racing surface that produces multiple racing lines on the high-banked 3/8-mile of clay.Meanwhile, tenth-starting Sorensen went around VanderBeek for third and then disposed of Ramirez three laps later and nestled up behind the rear bumper of Mars.The final 19 laps left were breathtaking as the 2018 National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame inductee who has thousands of laps logged at the New Richmond, Wis., speed palace, had to fight to keep the 18-year-old from Rochester, Minn., in his rear view mirror.Sorensen was noticeably faster than Mars, bobbling once on lap 30 and then making back up eight car-lengths in a span of two laps. But the experience of Mars wouldn't allow much room to make a pass.Finally, Sorensen began peeking at the extreme high side of turns three and four, looking to the outside of Mars for a way around. He gave it a shot on lap 36 but was forced to hit the brake pedal when Mars filled the gap before Sorensen could fill it.A quick learner, Sorensen drove hard the the same corner the next go around, and this time he was able to get wheel to wheel with Mars as they exited the corner.That was all she wrote.From there, Sorensen pulled away and crossed beneath the checkered flag with his third career USMTS victory and first away from his hometown track."That was the most fun I've ever had in a racecar," Sorensen told the crowd during his victory lane celebration. "This is the happiest I've ever been after a race, passing a guy like Jimmy. I kind of look up to him."Jimmy Mars leads eventual winner Dustin Sorensen in the late stages of Thursday night's USMTS main event.Sorensen, whose Memorial Day Weekend win in 2018 made him the youngest ever USMTS feature winner, drives an MB Customs chassis, built by none other than Mars."I didn't think I was going to get him there, and then he started running a little lower in (turns) three and four and, I just went for it."It was the third USMTS win for Sorensen, who trails his father Mike Sorensen by two in the career wins tally, and it was worth $3,000 to kick off the Masters weekend.Meanwhile, the 'Iceman' held on for runner-up honors with Ramirez trailing him across the finish line in third and VanderBeek claiming the fourth spot.Defending Masters champion Rodney Sanders, who started 17th on the grid, rounded out the top five and earned the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award, as well as the Eibach Spring Forward Award after advancing 21 positions throughout the night.Another local dirt late model veteran, A.J. Diemel, was sixth, Jake Timm snagged seventh, Hunter Marriott earned an eighth-place paycheck, Michael Truscott nabbed ninth and Darrell Nelson came from 22nd to claim the final spot in the top ten.More Masters magic: The undisputed best of the best in the world of dirt racing return on Friday and Saturday for the second and third nights of the 20th Annual Masters presented by Allstar Performance.Featuring one of the largest event purses on the United States Modified Touring Series schedule, this year's overall purse for the crown jewel event is fatter from top to bottom with Super Late Models sharing the spotlight and competing for the same big paydays as the USMTS Modifieds all three days.The main event pays a $5,000 top prize in each class on Friday. It all leads up to Saturday's ferocious finale which offers $10,000 to the winners of both the Super Late Model and USMTS Modified main events. USRA Late Models will also run a complete program each night.You don't miss a night, but if you aren't able to be there in person, RacinDirt will have the entire production live at RacinDirt.com.The Cedar Lake Speedway was founded in 1957, and today is a state-of-the-art 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval and one of the nation's leading short track facilities. The track is located 1.0 mile east of SR 35 on SR 64, then 4.2 miles north on CR C to CR CC, then left 1.8 miles.For more information, call (612) 363-0479 or (715) 248-7119 or visit CedarLakeSpeedway.com.To connect with the United States Modified Touring Series, visit USMTS.com (http://usmts.com/).

  5. Ramirez gets his kicks at Route 66 AMARILLO, Texas (June 8)--Dereck Ramirez disposed of Jake Gallardo on lap 11 of 40 at the Route 66 Motor Speedway on Saturday night, and then blasted his way through the field to score a $3,000 payday and the seventh win of his USMTS career. Adam Mollenkopf photoIt was the fifth win in the Lonestar State for the 32-year-old from Woodward, Texas, and his second of the Casey's General Stores USMTS National Championship powered by Summit in 2019.Earning the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award for a second straight night, Gallardo took control at the drop of the green flag while Ramirez, who started fourth, quickly moved to his rear bumper.Ramirez snuck by to lead lap 7 but Gallardo fought back to regain the lead. It was short-lived, however, as Ramirez was back in control for good three laps later.With just one caution early in the contest, Ramirez was able to decimate the field and lapped all but the top seven cars.Meanwhile, Jake O'Neil nabbed his third runner-up finish in the last five events while Rodney Sanders overcame a tough starting position for a second straight night and finished third.Kale Westover came from the 13th starting spot and held off Gallardo for fourth following a spirited battle between those two, but Carlos Ahumada Jr. was the FK Rod ends Hard Charger Award winner for racing to sixth after starting 21st on the grid.Terry Phillips, Philip Houston, Adam Kates and Dee Gossett rounded out the top 10.On to Wisconsin: The second crown jewel of the 2019 campaign takes place next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 13-15, at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., for the 20th Annual Masters presented by Allstar Performance.Both USMTS and Super Late Model competitors will be battling for $3,000 to win Thursday and $5,000 to win Friday with a whopping $10,000 top prize up for grabs on Saturday night.

  6. Gustin rolls to third straight USMTS win at West Texas Raceway LUBBOCK, Texas (June 7)--Only Mother Nature has been able to stop Ryan Gustin this week as 'The Reaper' reeled off his third straight Summit USMTS Southern Series win in five days Friday night at the West Texas Raceway. Courtesy of USMTS PRAfter winning last Sunday at the Creek County Speedway to break a dry spell of more than a year, Gustin won Tuesday's event at the Superbowl Speedway before the shows on Tuesday and Wednesday were rained out.An opening-lap caution moved Gustin from the third starting spot to the outside of the front row for the start of the 40-lap main event, but it was 2015 USRA Modified National Champion Jake Gallardo jumping out from the pole position to lead lap 1.Gallardo ran a smooth race up front but Gustin was able to overpower the Las Cruces, N.M., racer on lap 12 and went unchallenged the remaining 28 circuits to claim the $3,000 winner's share of the prize money.Jake O'Neil scooted past Gallardo for second but Dereck Ramirez blew by both and secured the second spot for another top-five result while O'Neill, Gallardo and Terry Phillips were the rest of the first five to reach the checkered flag.Hunter Marriott and Rodney Sanders each passed eight cars to finish sixth and seventh, respectively, but Marriott garnered the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award by virtue of his higher finish position.Fito Gallardo held on for eighth ahead of Joe Duvall, who rebounded from the opening-lap incident to score a ninth-place paycheck. Meanwhile, Logan Robertson returned to the racetrack after destroying his previous ride last month and finishing tenth at the 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval.Amarillo Saturday: The five-day swing wraps up Saturday with the 10th Annual USMTS Amarillo Ambush presented by Genesis Racing Shocks at the Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo.This will be the tenth meeting of the USMTS and the tough regional and local USRA Modified racers in West Texas and New Mexico where past USMTS events have played out in front of standing-room-only crowds.Hometown favorite Rodney Sanders captured the inaugural event in 2010, added a second trophy to his case in 2015 and a third in last year's stop.

  8. Gustin grinds out USMTS victory at Creek County Speedway KELLYVILLE, Okla. (June 2)--Ryan Gustin roped himself a rugged victory Sunday night when the USMTS invaded the Creek County Speedway for the 2nd Annual Bullring Badass presented by Bravado Wireless, AmeriFlex Hose & Accessories, Pizza Express and Duvall Electric. Courtesy of USMTS PR Following up last year's inaugural event where fans were treated to a caution-free 40-lap barnburner, another epic battle in the tight confines of the 35-year-old quarter-mile dirt oval produced another 40 circuits of rush hour traffic."It was elbows up, no doubt," said Gustin, who rode into the USMTS winners circle for the first time since the final night of the Featherlite Fall Jamboree on Sept. 23, 2017. "I broke something in the left front there and, man, that thing was tight on entry."I didn't want no more laps, that's for sure. I was wore out and the car didn't want no more either."Unfortunately for USMTS national points leader Rodney Sanders, his tire only had 30 laps in it. In the heat of a three-way tussle between himself, Dereck Ramirez and Gustin, Sanders slowed on the exit of turn 2 which allowed Ramirez and Gustin to scoot past while Sanders came to a stop in the next corner.Following the caution flag with ten laps remaining, Ramirez was able to nose in front of Gustin to lead lap 31, but 'The Reaper' came storming back on the high side to take the lead for good with eight to go.From there, Gustin rode the dangerous but faster high line to the checkered flag with Jake O'Neil advancing to claim the runner-up spot while Ramirez held strong in third.With last year's winless season and a rash of mechanical woes since March of 2019, the win was just what the doctor ordered for the two-time USMTS National Champion."We've just had some tough luck you know; That's how it goes," said Gustin, who unveiled his new livery last weekend with new sponsor Spike Hardcore Energy. "We can't be having any more failures or anything going on, so we have to stay on top of our maintenance program."It was Gustin's 95th career triumph-third on the USMTS all-time wins list."Hopefully maybe Cedar Lake on Saturday is 100," Gustin added, referencing the 20th Annual Masters, June 13-15. With seven features races on tap between now and then, anything is possible with cooperation from racing gremlins and Mother Nature.Terry Phillips and Mike Striegel each passed a dozen drivers en route to finishing fourth and fifth, respectively, in Sunday's main event. With the higher finishing position, however, Phillips earned the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award.Driving a car owned by event promoter Joe Duvall, former USMTS regular Randy Timms garnered a sixth-place paycheck while local favorite Chad Davis drive past 11 cars from his starting spot to get seventh. Saturday's winner, Hunter Marriott, took eighth, Sanders rebounded for ninth and Kyle Ledford scored his second top-10 finish in as many nights.Lap sponsors kicked in an additional $4,100 to the top three runners each laps. Lap sponsors for the event included 23 Motorsports, All American Forklift, Angela Hibbs Rodan + Fields, ARMI Contractors, ASAP Battery Service, Brandon Givens Racing, Bulletproof Tees, CCA Investments, TMSDirt.com, Chris Ross Racing, Dishman Equipment, Diva Dogs, Dizzy Dean Electric, Dozer Finance, driveWFX.com, Hibbs Funeral Home, Maria Farmer, McSperitt Construction, Mike's Flagpole Service, Ottesen Design, Pizza Express, RacinDirt.com, Shannon Scott's Henryetta Ford, Steven Bowers Racing, Tiernan Farms, Tonto Construction, United Cellular Services and Wild Bill White (Keith White), plus memorials for Junior Duvall and Mike Clark.Bergman Tax & Accounting put up $300 and Fast Shafts awarded a new carbon fiber driveshaft to the driver passing the most cars all night. T&S Beverage of Salina provided $100 cash to the first two non-qualifiers and ARMI Contractors stepped up with additional cash for non-qualifiers.The Front Row Challenge presented by Grady Smith and Smith All-Fab offered $2,500 to any driver starting in the front row who could tag the tail of the field and win. Nobody accepted the challenge.After Sunday's show, teams get a 24-hour rest prior to a five-race excursion through the Lone Star State and the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD. On Tuesday, the series slithers into the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville before making a "hump day" trek to the 82 Speedway in Petty.The Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls hosts the USMTS road warriors on Thursday, Lubbock's West Texas Raceway is the venue for Friday night's action and the Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo will welcome the tour on Saturday.For those unable to be there in person to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells, enjoy the next best thing with every lap of every race in every division every night live at RacinDirt.com.To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit USMTS.com or call (515) 832-7944.

  9. Marriott dominant in USMTS stint at Tri-State Speedway POCOLA, Okla. (June 1)--Two runner-up finishes to close out Memorial Day Weekend with the USMTS was a prelude to things to come as Hunter Marriott improved to first place Saturday night at the Tri-State Speedway to claim his second career win in his rookie season.The 27-year-old shared the front row on the main event starting grid with two-time USMTS National Champion Ryan Gustin, who led the opening lap from the Sybesma Graphics Pole Position.Undaunted, Marriott battled back to steal the lead from 'The Reaper' one lap later. He never relinquished the top spot again despite six caution flags that kept the field within striking distance.MSD Performance USMTS Mid-American Series points leader Dereck Ramirez came closest to producing a challenge for the lead but fell short by four car-lengths in the end after coming from 15th.Terry Phillips rebounded from a mid-race skirmish to snag the third spot from Hughes late in the race while 13th-starting Rodney Sanders rounded out the top five finishers.Mike Striegel earned both the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger and Eibach Spring Forward Awards for his run from 22nd at the drop of the green flag to sixth at the finish line 35 laps later.Jake O'Neil wound up seventh, followed by a trio of Arkansas pilots: Kyle Ledford, Trevor Latham and Tyler Wolff.

  12. O'Neil sets sail at Longdale for first USMTS win of 2019 After missing most of April while he recovered from medical issues, Jake O'Neil has steadily improved both physically and inside the cockpit of his LG2 chassis by Jimmy Owens. Tyler Rinken photo On Thursday night he returned to USMTS action for the first time since King of America IX in March and brought home a fifth-place finish. Friday night he improved to third and Saturday he made the climb to the top of the mountain in taking the checkers at the Longdale Speedway. O'Neil started on the outside of the front row for the 35-lap main event, but it was back-to-back Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Dereck Ramirez who got the jump at the drop of the green flag with Ryan Gustin and R.C. Whitwell following Ramirez while O'Neil slipped to fourth on the opening lap. Still looking for his first USMTS victory of the year, Gustin pressured Ramirez for the first eight laps before Whitwell got by to claim the second spot. Whitwell nosed ahead to lead lap 12 but Ramirez powered back to the front one lap later. O'Neil was eventually able to get around Gustin and Whitwell, and then wrestled the lead away from Ramirez with 27 laps in the books while Gustin coasted to the pit area with mechanical troubles for a second straight night. For the final eight laps around the half-mile clay oval, O'Neil left no doubt as he pulled away to a six-car-length triumph at the finish line with Ramirez following in the runner-up spot. Meanwhile, USMTS national points leader Rodney Sanders worked his way to the third spot after starting 20th due to switching to a back-up car after his heat race, which he won. He would have started sixth in the feature race if he had driven the same car he qualified with. Whitwell held on for fourth ahead of 14th-starting Tyler Wolff who picked up the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. Hunter Marriott, Terry Phillips, Joe Duvall, Mike Striegel and Jon Herring Jr. completed the top 10. O'Neil's fourth career USMTS win was worth $3,000. Killer Quintuple kicks off May: After a ten-day break to catch their breath, the tireless USMTS touring titans return to action on May 7 for the first of five straight nights on a journey through the Lone Star State. The Summit USMTS Southern Series swing begins Tuesday, May 7, at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville. This is the ninth attempt, but only three times has Mother Nature cooperated with efforts here. The USMTS debuted at the semi-banked clay oval in 2014. Cade Dillard was the winner in the last dry event here in 2016. From there, the series returns to two tracks for a second time but both under a new name. On Wednesday, May 8, it's a trek to the 82 Speedway in Petty where Philip Houston won the inaugural event in 2015, and then on Thursday, May 9, the reanimated Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls hosts the return of the USMTS since Rodney Sanders won here that same year. Friday, May 10, finds the relentless USMTS road warriors back at the West Texas Raceway in Lubbock before wrapping up the power pentathlon with the 10th annual USMTS Amarillo Ambush on Saturday, May 11, at the Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo.

  13. VanderBeek gets it done at 81, scores first USMTS checkers of 2019 PARK CITY, Kan. (April 25)--After several near misses in the early going this season, Zack VanderBeek finally found the road to victory lane and garnered his 48th career USMTS win at the 81 Speedway on Thursday night. The 34-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa, hasn't employed any drastic measures to get faster, just plugging away. "We made some little changes, but we're just working hard and not giving up," he said after receiving the winner's trophy just shortly after 10:30. "It's a heck of a lot easier when you can start in front of these guys." Local favorite and Wichita native Cody Schniepp snagged the Sybesma Pole Award, but VanderBeek muscled his familiar No. 33z Casey's General Stores VanderBuilt Race Cars USMTS Modified into the top spot to lead the first lap. About 20 minutes and 40 laps later, 'The Z-Man' finally had a checkered flag to take home from C. Ray Hall's historic facility-a place where VanderBeek had piled up several near-misses over the last decade. "King of America was tough, and then going down south there's a lot of good cars," VanderBeek added. "We've been kind of right there but you just have to get in the right position. I think we'll have some more wins this year." Conversely, Rodney Sanders has a series-best four triumphs at the 81 Speedway and two wins under his belt this season already. This time, however, 'The Sandman' had to follow his long-time nemesis to the finish line. Sanders chased Schniepp for the first half of the main event before eventually working his way into second, but he was never able to mount a serious challenge on the leader despite two caution flags late in the race. "Once I got to second I knew Zack was probably not going to make a mistake," said the 2013 and 2014 USMTS National Champion. "At that point I was just trying to save my right rear tire and just kind of hang on." For his part, Schniepp kept pace with the lead duo until the end, coming home with a career-best third-place USMTS finish and holding off Ryan Gustin over the final laps. Jake O'Neil returned to USMTS action after nearly a month off to recover from an apparent staff infection in his legs, and snatched a top-five finish as a 'Welcome Home' gift. R.C. Whitwell, Dereck Ramirez, Hunter Marriott, Joe Duvall and Chad Wheeler completed the top 10.

  14. Sanders collects opening night checkers at USMTS Cajun Clash VIVIAN, La. (April 11)--The fans in attendance at the Ark-La-Tex Speedway and those watching live on RacinDirt.com witnessed a barn-burner of a main event Thursday to kick off the 7th Annual USMTS Cajun Clash, but Rodney Sanders missed out on all of the excitement going on behind him. Tyler Rinken photoAfter disposing of polesitter Lucas Schott on the first lap, Sanders raced out to a big lead and stayed there for 33 laps before the first caution of the race with seven to go erased his advantage.Despite a charging Cade Dillard, Schott, Ryan Gustin and Zack VanderBeek right behind, the Casey's General Stores USMTS National Championship points leader never faltered and, in fact, survived another caution with five laps remaining to garner his second straight Summit USMTS Southern Series victory.Early in the race, Dillard and Gustin put on a whale of a battle for the third spot with Dillard eventually able to secure the position and then getting by Schott with 13 laps to go.But even with the pair of late-race cautions, Dillard-the defending Cajun Clash champ-was unable to reel in Sanders and a final-lap drive came up about a car-length short.Schott held off VanderBeek and Gustin for the third position while Carlos Ahumada Jr., Terry Phillips, Hunter Marriott, Jason Hughes and Dereck Ramirez completed the top 10.Another complete show of qualifying heat races and main events is on tap for Friday and Saturday for the USMTS Modifieds as well as the USRA Factory Stocks and USRA Limited Mods.On Friday, the pits open at 2 p.m., grandstands open at 5, drivers meeting at 6:30 and racing at 7 p.m. On Saturday, the pits open at 2 p.m., grandstands open at 4:30, drivers meeting at 5:30 and racing at 6 p.m. sharp.The Ark-La-Tex Speedway is located 0.6 mile south of SR 2 on SR 1, then 0.7 mile west on Airport Rd., then 2.2 miles south on Boyter Lane Rd.

  15. Cajun Clash looms as USMTS washed out at Whynot, Magnolia MERIDIAN, Miss. (April 6)--A rain-soaked Mississippi has forced USMTS and track officials to cancel Saturday night's stint at the Whynot Motorsports Park as well as the scheduled series debut at the Magnolia Motor Speedway on Sunday. The good news is that we are just five days away from a return to the Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., and opening night of the 7th Annual Cajun Clash presented by Horseshoe Bossier City. USMTS competitors will be seeking a $10,000 top prize to win Saturday night's finale while Factory Stocks and Limited Mods will each battle for a $4,000 paycheck. The wait is event shorter for those who will be at the Gene Boyter's speed palace for open practice on Wednesday, April 10, which will likely be the only session for hot laps during the Cajun Clash.

  16. Sanders tops Summit USMTS Southern Series action at Jackson BYRAM Miss. (April 5)--Rodney Sanders saw the green flag and then proceeded to pounce on the competition Friday night at the Jackson Motor Speedway, scoring a $3,000 victory. Tyler Rinkin photo The two-time USMTS National Champion held a comfortable lead for most of the 30-lap main event, but a caution with two laps remaining gave hard-charging Zack VanderBeek a shot at the leader. Nevertheless, Sanders held on for the win while VanderBeek finished second at the 1/4-mile dirt oval for the second year in a row.Last year VanderBeek inherited the win after apparent winner Lucas Lee was disqualified during post-race technical inspections. This time around 'The Z-Man' wasn't as lucky and had to settle for a runner-up paycheck behind 'The Sandman.'Terry Phillips and Logan Robertson each took turns chasing Sanders with Phillips eventually claiming the third-place finish while Robertson followed Timothy Culp across the finish line in the fifth spot.Joe Duvall came from the 14th starting position to finish sixth, Lance Walker passed ten cars in his USMTS debut to claim seventh, Zane Ferrell earned eighth place, Jeremy Idom nabbed ninth and new Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year points leader Mike Striegel rounded out the top ten.With his 87th career USMTS triumph, Sanders took command in the USMTS National Championship points standings as well as the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD.The series heads to the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Minn., tomorrow as the USMTS brings the boom for a third straight year with a three-wide start for Saturday night's main event at the 'House of Hook.'Pits open at 1 p.m., grandstands open at 3, the drivers meeting starts at 6, hot laps begin at 6:30 and racing gets underway at 7 p.m.Adult grandstand tickets are $20 and kids (6-12) get in for $10.

  17. Bailes Rolls to First Lucas Oil Victory SEYMOUR, TENN (April 5, 2019) - Ross Bailes rolled to his first-career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory on Friday night at 411 Motor Speedway. The 29-year-old, South Carolina native led all 50 laps of "Tennessee's Action Track 50" en route to one of the biggest wins of his career. Bailes took the lead at the start of the race, withstood several cautions, and managed to hold off a late race charge from three other drivers to become the sixth different winner of the 2019 season. Donald McIntosh took second over Jimmy Owens. Current Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series point leader, Jonathan Davenport finished in fourth followed by Dale McDowell. "This seems unbelievable," said Bailes. "We have tried for so long to win one of these and we just couldn't get it done. To come to a new place like this and to get it done here is just unimaginable. I felt good on the bottom and then when I got to lapped traffic I was slowing down. I knew I needed to search around and do something different. My crew guys told me to move up and when I did the car felt really good up there." Bailes added: "This place is awesome. I think if we would have run another 50 laps it would have been even better. I was happy with it. There was grip on the bottom . I didn't have to worry about the top for the first half of the race and then it got racy all over. This win is now at the top of my list for sure. Maybe we can get another one tomorrow night at North Georgia. I want to thank Barry and Lance Wright, Ronnie McCarter and all of my crew it was a great team win that's for sure." McIntosh, also looking for his first career Lucas Oil win, settled for second at the line. "Our car was pretty good. I had it prepared to run the top. I was just biding my time out there. I thought I could get up to him [Bailes] and make a run for the win. I am blessed to be back at Blount Motorsports and maybe we can get that first Lucas Oil win tomorrow night at North Georgia." "I don't think he [Bailes] knew the top was there. "We had a great race for second with Jimmy [Owens]. I think I showed him [Bailes] the top one time and he moved up there in traffic. Racing with these guys and from where we started that's a pretty awesome run," said McIntosh who started sixth. Owens finished third after a late-race charge. "We have been pretty good in East Tennessee so far this year. We have had good race cars all year long. It feels good to finally finish a Lucas Oil race. Last year we had such terrible misfortune. This year seemed like it was going to start off the same way but we just aren't going to let that happen. McIntosh had a good car, and he was up on the wheel. I felt like we could have gotten second, but we are just happy to finish on the podium."

  19. Thornton conquers King of America IXHUMBOLDT, Kan. (March 23)--Ricky Thornton Jr. wrestled the lead away from Kyle Strickler on lap 19 and proceeded to thrive and survive for the final 31 laps to earn a $12,000 payday and claim the crown of dirt modified racing's King of America. Todd Boyd photoRain throughout the early morning hours created havoc for crews at the Humboldt Speedway and resulted in an extremely fast yet uncharacteristically rough racing surface.Thornton, however, found the fastest and smoothest way around the quarter-mile bullring."We knew the track was going to have a lot of character," Thornton said following his eighth career USMTS triumph. "I was kind of just trying to bide my time early and then we kept going and going and I'm like 'Man, they're going to cut this. I gotta go.'At 50 laps in distance, it was the shortest distance for a King of America main event which three times has been a 100-lapper, but with a dozen caution flags for one thing or another, it wasn't the shortest on the time clock."We actually passed a lot of good cars there before they broke, so that was kind of cool for me," Thornton added. "I know we didn't have as many cars finish as we would like but we definitely had a good run getting through the field there."Last year we actually ran a crate motor and i ran out of gas coming to the checkered so this year we brought an open motor thanks to Jason Beaulieu. We knew we weren't going to run out of fuel this year."Polesitter Ryan Gustin shot to the lead at the drop of the green flag and paced the first eight laps before Strickler snuck by on the inside. Two laps later, Gustin's car began to belch white smoke from underneath the hood and poured fluid onto the track entering turn one.While Gustin was out of the race, seven others behind him were collected in a slippery melee. Along with 'The Reaper,' only Travis Sauer was unable to continue.Soon after the restart, Strickler had his hands full with former USMTS national champs Jason Hughes and Rodney Sanders, but Thornton was charging to the front and disposed of Sanders on lap 16 and then Hughes began to suffer a mechanical breakdown as Thornton sped past him and Strickler on the same orbit.Strickler fought back as he and Thornton swapped several intense slide-jobs, but Thornton finally settled into a rhythm and pulled away from the field for his first USMTS win since Aug. 17, 2017, in Memphis, Mo., behind the wheel of the Oreo-sponsored machine.Hughes, defending race winner Lucas Schott and 2016 King of America winner Zack VanderBeek went pit side between laps 19 and 35 while Strickler dropped out on lap 41 with a damaged fuel cell which had gone empty. Sanders dropped out one lap later in the tenth finishing position."We didn't put a new body on because we figured we were going to tear some stuff up here," Thornton declared after winning the main event by 5.847 seconds. "We're not here to win a beauty contest. We're here to win a feature."We finally got us a crown jewel with the USMTS." Courtesy of USMTSAs a promoter's choice provisional starter, defending Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national champion Darron Fuqua claimed the runner-up spot after starting 26th with Brady Gerdes and 'Big Daddy' Joe Duvall following close behind in third and fourth.Meanwhile, an undesirable weekend wound up with a delightful finish for Kenny Wallace. After advancing out of the Mesilla Valley Transportation "C" Main and then garnering the final transfer spot in the G-Style Transport "B" Main, the former NASCAR superstar nursed a race car with a bent chassis home in fifth after rolling off 24th on the grid. His effort earned him both the Eibach Spring Forward Award for passing the most cars throughout the three days (28 total) and FK Rod Ends Hard Charger for passing the most cars in the main event.Tyler Davis finished in the sixth position, 25th-starting Terry Phillips rebounded from his roll-over the previous night and finished seventh, R.C. Whitwell raced from 22nd to eighth and Chad Lyle, ninth, was the last car running at the checkered flag.Drivers raced in two heat races on Thursday and two on Friday with each driver's best three efforts counting toward Saturday's feature lineups. The top 12 in passing points from the first two nights were locked into Saturday's championship with the remainder of the field coming from Saturday's "B" Mains, "C" Mains and Last Chance races.Now in it's 21st season, the United States Modified Touring Series will continue with the Casey's General Stores USMTS National Championship invades three of the fastest dirt tracks in Mississippi featuring the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD.The titanic tripleheader gets started Friday, April 5, at the historic Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss., followed by a Saturday night fight at the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian.

  20. Gustin, O'Neil share King of America IX front row HUMBOLDT, Kan. (March 22)--After two nights of incredible heart-stopping USMTS qualifying races at the Humboldt Speedway on Thursday and Friday, the fields are set for Saturday's main events at the King of America IX Modified Nationals powered by Summit Racing Equipment. And with two nights of solid performances, two-time USMTS national champion Ryan Gustin of Marshalltown, Iowa, will be seeking his third King of America crown from the pole while last year's USMTS Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year, Jake O'Neil, will take the green flag from the outside of the front row.

Drivers raced in two heat races on Thursday and two on Friday with each driver's best three efforts counting toward Saturday's feature lineups. Tie-breakers, if needed, were determined by their fourth heat races.

  23. Johnny Scott celebrates with family and crewmembers at the USMTS awards banquet. Great Scott! USMTS honors drivers, crews, sponsors at awards banquet KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Feb. 22)--The drivers, crewmembers, track operators, sponsors and their families were honored at the annual USMTS awards banquet Friday night in the Star Pavilion at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City. Headlining the night was Johnny Scott who captured both the 2018 USMTS Casey's General Stores National Championship and Summit USMTS Southern Series titles. The 20th anniversary season for the United States Modified Touring Series featured a points fund of more than $160,000 highlighted by a record top prize of $50,000 for Scott. In all, more than $1.25 million was doled out to USMTS competitors throughout the course of the 2018 campaign between event purses and points funds. The USMTS Casey's General Stores National Championship, which initially included 43 points races at 37 of America's most popular dirt ovals, wound up with 37 nights of racing and determined the points tally with several non-points crown jewel events on the calendar as well. With events in Arkansas, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, the Summit Racing Equipment USMTS Southern Series also had its own lucrative points fund and crowned a champion at season's end after 14 points races. By November 3, both titles and all the bragging rights went home to Las Cruces, N.M., with Johnny Scott who recently turned 29 years old in December. He's just the seventh driver in 20 seasons to capture dirt modified racing's most elusive title and while the weather in 2018 was unpredictable, the performance of Scott was not.

  24. White, Phillips share front row for Saturday's Summit USMTS Southern Nationals finale KENNEDALE, Texas (Nov. 2)--The Kennedale Speedway Park hosted 211 competitors for the inaugural Summit Racing Equipment USMTS Southern Nationals on Friday night with drivers dueling in dual qualifying heats for their starting spots in Saturday's finale at the quarter-mile clay oval. Drivers in each division battled in two 10-lap qualifying heats from two different starting spots. Passing points were combined to set the lineups for Saturday's championship with the top 12 locked into Saturday's "A" Main, the next 12 to the "B" Main and so forth. After 880 laps of green flag racing in three divisions, the starting lineups for Saturday are set with a pair of dirt track racing veterans earning the front row of the $10,000-to-win USMTS main event. After a second-place finish and a victory in their dual qualifying heats, George White of Fort Worth and Terry Phillips of Springfield, Mo., will share the front row. White will be the polesitter by virtue of his faster-lap tiebreaker. Jack Sartain and Dereck Ramirez take the green flag from the second row, with Bo Day, Clyde Dunn Jr., Kevin Rutherford, Ryan Gustin, Kale Westover, Johnny Scott, Marvin Skinner and Jake Gallardo filling the remainder of the first 12 spots. The remainder of the field will come from the top 12 finishers in the "B" Main. In Limited Mod action, Kevin Manning of Kaufman will be n the pole with Adam Willis of Elizabeth, La., to his right. Shane Hebert, Rodney Sanders, Rowdy Day, Dustin Robinson, Tommy Davis Jr., Adam Roy, James Skinner, Don White Jr., Tanner Houston and David Bolf have the other 12 locked-in spots. Cameron Cook of Grand Prairie will be joined by Ralo Pilkington of Marshall on the front row of the $5,000-to-win Factory Stock feature race. The second through sixth rows on the grid belong to Chris Henigan, Justin Whitehead, Brett McMillin, Lance Hansen Jr., Charles Jones Jr., Keith White, Jason Cook, Frank Lackey, Jeff Hauser and Jeffrey Abbey. USMTS Modifieds will pay $10,000 to win and $800 to to take the green flag in Saturday's main event. Limited Mods are gunning for $5,000 to win and $350 to start while Factory Stocks will pay $5,000 to the winner and $300 to start the feature race. Saturday's show is the final points race for the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by Production Jars, and Johnny Scott's 76-point cushion over Rodney Sanders assures him the series title-adding to his $50,000 USMTS national championship he locked up in September. Sanders has secured the runner-up honors but the battle for third is tight with Stormy Scott clinging to a three-point cushion over Dereck Ramirez. Joe Duvall sits solidly in fifth. The pits will open at 1 p.m. and grandstand gates open at 3. The drivers meeting takes place at 3:30 with racing to follow at 4 p.m. Fans will witness a full night of last-chance races and an 'alphabet soup' of main events in all three classes.

  25. Johnny Scott flat-out shreds USMTS rivals at Rock Rapids ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Aug. 30)--Just when Johnny Scott could probably cruise safely to his first USMTS national championship, the New Mexico native just continues to push it to the limit like his life depends on it.Rather than just play it safe and collect enough points to keep his lead safe, Scott manhandled his No. 1st Rancho Milagro Racing VanderBuilt machine as hard as he could Thursday night at the Rapid Speedway and collected his 13th victory of the season."I felt that tire go down coming out of (turn) four for the white flag and I was like 'You gotta be kidding me,' but I guess I had a good enough lead and I just stayed on the gas and just kept going around there and we pulled it off. I didn't think we were going to," an elated Scott said in victory lane.Enjoying a nearly eight-second lead over Rodney Sanders with one lap to go, Scott began to slow considerably after crossing underneath the white flag. By the time he reached turn three it was obvious his right rear tire was flat and chunks of rubber began to tear into his body panels as they flew off of the car.One lapped car got back by Scott in the final corner heading to the checkered flag, but despite the right rear wheel digging into the soft clay in the final turn Scott's cushion was so massive that he was able to limp across the finish line more than two seconds ahead of Sanders.Scott took the lead on the first lap, and with just one caution during the race he lapped everybody but those finishing in the top six. He was on the back bumper of fifth-place-finishing twin brother Stormy Scott's bumper when his tire went flat."It's been a stressful year," Johnny Scott added. "When you're leading the points it's never off your mind. You just got to go out there and just try to finish races. Heck, I just try not to think about. Just go out there and try to win races." Johnny Scott limped into victory lane Thursday night at the Rapid Speedway after blowing his right rear tire on the final lap of the 40-lap feature. For his efforts, Johnny Scott pocketed $3,000 for the win-the 43rd of his USMTS career-and surpassed Tommy Myer's total of 42 to move into sole possession of seventh on the all-time victories list. More importantly, Johnny Scott basically needs to make sure he keeps breathing and he'll be the 2018 USMTS national champion.Considering he's the top eligible driver for a provisional starting spot in the final four races of the points chase, the least amount of points he can earn in each of those events is 50 while the most a driver can earn is 103 for winning the race and leading the most laps.If he wins the final four races, leads the most laps all four and Johnny Scott finishes last in those four races, the most points that second-place Stormy Scott could gain on the leader over the next four races is 212.He trails by 210.Mathematically, it's not over yet. But the fat lady is warming up and the awards-makers are charging their engraving tools.A two-time USMTS national champion, Sanders held off last year's Rapid Speedway winner Dereck Ramirez for the runner-up spot Thursday while Terry Phillips continued his late-season surge with a fourth-place finish.The last driver on the lead lap, Josh Angst was sixth, followed by Jake O'Neil, Adam Kates, Rock Rapids racer Don Gerritsen Jr. and 17th-starting Zack VanderBeek.There's no mathematical equations to figure out in the battle for the Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year Award. With his showing Thursday night, O'Neil has secured the 2018 top rookie honors.One other season-ending award was clinched with Johnny Scott's victory on Thursday night.
