  1. 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.

  2. 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. Headed for Hutch: On Friday, the series invades the historic Kansas State Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Kan., for the inaugural USMTS Salt City Assault and another pivotal points race in the MSD Performance USMTS Mid-American Series.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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."

The dirt-slinging demons of the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD light the fuse on Friday, April 5, with a battle at the Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Johnny Scott onslaught continues at Ogilvie OGILVIE, Minn. (Aug. 11)--Johnny Scott's stranglehold on USMTS victory lane continued with an impressive win at the Ogilvie Raceway during Saturday's 7th Annual Chubbs Performance Modified Madness presented by U.S. Army.With his second straight triumph in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the 28-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M., now residing in Cameron, Mo., brought his weekend take-home pay to nearly $7,000 and eclipsed the $50,000 mark in season-long earnings heading into Sunday's clash at the Mason City Motor Speedway.The win was Scott's eighth of the year in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit, and tenth overall-exactly one-quarter of his 40 career United States Modified Touring Series wins.While this was Scott's first first-place finish at "The Big O," his twin brother came up two spots shy of capturing his fourth checkered flag here after climbing from 11th on the grid to finish third behind Lucas Schott in the non-stop, caution-free 40-lapper.Jake O'Neil garnered fourth-place money and Terry Phillips held on for fifth. Jeremy Nelson, Rodney Sanders, Zack VanderBeek, Dereck Ramirez and Justin Oestreich completed the top ten.On Sunday, the Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa, hosts the 7th Annual Diamond Jo Casino "All-In 77" at the historic North Iowa Fairgrounds clay oval now in its third year under USMTS legend Al Hejna.This will be the ninth USMTS event held here. Six different drivers won each of the first six, beginning with Ryan Ruter's victory in 2009. Mike Steensma, Kelly Shryock and Jason Hughes also tasted USMTS glory when the track was still known as I-35 Speedway.Two events were staged in 2016 with Rodney Sanders and Cade Dillard topping those shows. Ryan Gustin won both main events last year after an early-season rain-out in June forced double features for the August show.Sunday's blockbuster will also feature Holley USRA Stock Cars, Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, Cook Racing Supplies USRA Hobby Stocks and Rookies Rockin' USRA Tuners running for increased prize money as well as track, regional and national points in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series.The pit gate opens at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5 and hot laps begin at 6 with racing to follow. Adult general admission tickets are $20. Seniors (65+), members of the military and first responders get in for $17. Juniors ages 11-16 are just $10 and kids 10 and under are free. A pit pass costs $35.Coupons good for $2 off adult admission are available at Casey's General Store locations in Clear Lake, Forest City, Garner, Lake Mills, Manly, Mason City, Nora Springs, Northwood, Osage, Sheffield and St. Ansgar."Big Daddy" Joe Duvall will have his Spike Hardcore Energy No. 91 machine at the Casey's located at 6 Plaza Dr. in Clear Lake from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday.The Mason City Motor Speedway is a semi-banked 1/2-mile clay oval located 5.1 miles east of I-35 at exit 194 on SR 122 at the North Iowa Fairgrounds (3700 4th St SW, Mason City, IA 50401).

  16. VanderBeek in victory lane at Humboldt HUMBOLDT, Kan. (Aug. 3)--The 50th United States Modified Touring Series feature held at the Humboldt Speedway saw Zack VanderBeek lead from start to finish for his 47th career USMTS victory Friday night. Driving the Oreo/Casey's General Stores VanderBuilt Race Cars No. 33z, the 33-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa, redrew the pole to start the 40-lap main event and fended off early-race challenges from Dereck Ramirez before pulling away to an eight-car-length win at the finish line to earn the $3,000 top prize. Stormy Scott, who started seventh, came alive late in the race but was unable to reel in the winner and had to settle for the runner-up honors at 'The Hummer' rather than notching his 49th career victory. Rodney Sanders got around Dereck Ramirez to take the third spot while R.C. Whitwell claimed the fifth position. Ethan Dotson, Jake O'Neil, Terry Phillips, Lucas Schott and Jason Hughes rounded out the top 10. On Saturday, the party heads east to the state-of-the-art Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., for the 9th Annual Lucas Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout presented by Foley Equipment. Zack VanderBeek won the last appearance by the USMTS at the track in 2016 as last year's Lucas Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout was rained out. Johnny Scott and Gustin will also be looking to score their second win at the 'Diamond of Dirt Tracks' but the only two-time winner of this event is Terry Phillips. Phillips has 24 career USMTS victories but none since Aug. 5, 2016, at Humboldt. Saturday's show on familiar ground may help keep the 52-year-old from nearby Springfield from extending his winless drought past the two-year mark. Gates open at 4 p.m. and racing begins at 7:05 following a prayer and the national anthem at 7. Adult admission is $20, seniors 62 and older are $17, youth ages 6-15 are $10 and kids ages 5 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $40. Joe Duvall will have his No. 91 Spike Hardcore Energy USMTS Modified at the Casey's General Store located just a few blocks from the track at 310 E. Hwy 54 in Wheatland from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Race fans can pick up coupons good for $2 off adult admission at Casey's General Stores locations in Bolivar, Hermitage, Osceola, Stockton, Warsaw, Weaubleau and Wheatland. To find the location nearest you, visit www.caseys.com. Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will also be in action competing for track, regional and national points in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series. Big O Tires Street Stocks are also on the card. The Lucas Oil Speedway is located at the junction of Hwy. 83 and 54 in Wheatland, Mo. A campground with shower and bathroom facilities is also available. With its entrance located just outside the pit gate this sprawling scenic camping facility will continue to enhance the racing experience at the Diamond of Dirt Tracks.

  17. Sanders reclaims USMTS Silver Dollar Nationals throne GREENWOOD, Neb. (July 21)--Rodney Sanders is always tough to beat. At the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., it seems like it's not even a fair fight.Sanders-the 2013 and 2014 USMTS national champion-led all 40 laps Saturday night to capture the United States Modified Touring Series main event during the 8th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals.Since 2013, "The Sandman" has been nearly unstoppable at the Kosiski family's 4/10-mile of clay nestled halfway between Lincoln and Omaha at exit 420-only twice, in fact, out of the 10 USMTS main events staged here since his first win five years ago.The 28-year-old from Happy, Texas, started on the pole and, despite three cautions during the last half of the race and a late charge by Jason Hughes, was never seriously challenged for the $8,000 winner's share of the prize money.Hughes, making his first USMTS start since last month's Masters event at the Cedar Lake Speedway, got by Lucas Schott following the race's final caution with five laps remaining but could not get close enough to Sanders to make a bid for the lead.Zack VanderBeek claimed a fourth-place paycheck behind Sanders, Hughes and Schott while 16th-starting Stormy Scott held off his twin brother, Johnny Scott, for fifth.As the current USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup national points leader, Johnny Scott took a provisional and drove Stormy Scott's back-up car from the 23rd starting spot after needing a provisional to make the show.Casey Arneson, who started 17th after winning the Real Racing Wheels "B" Main, was seventh at the finish line with Dereck Ramirez, Jake Timm and Jesse Sobbing rounding out the top 10.Missing in action this weekend due to tornadoes that rocked his hometown of Marshalltown, Iowa, Ryan Gustin's 85th career USMTS win came at the I-80 Speedway one year ago when he ended Sanders' stranglehold on the Silver Dollar Nationals winner's circle.Sanders recorded his 85th USMTS victory on Saturday. Nearly 10 percent of the those have happened in the Cornhusker State.What's on tap: The USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit is back in action with a tripleheader weekend Aug. 2-4. On Thursday, the tour trots into the Springfield Raceway in Springfield, Mo., followed by a Friday night fling at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan. The weekend wraps up Saturday with the 8th Annual Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit www.usmts.com online or call 515-832-7944.

  18. Sanders adds Oskaloosa to USMTS conquest collection OSKALOOSA, Iowa (July 18)--In capturing his 84th career victory Wednesday night, Rodney Sanders dominated the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup main event, leading all 30 laps of the 11th Annual Summit Racing Summer Classic at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa.It had been seven years since the series fired up at "The Monster" and the win gave "The Sandman" another new race track to add to his list of conquests.A pair of cautions flags on laps 17 and 21 only served to give false hope to Sanders' pursuers as he was able to pull away on each ensuing restart before crossing beneath the checkered flag with, according to Sanders, "about two laps left" on his right rear tire.Stormy Scott held off his twin brother Johnny Scott to claim the runner-up finish while Terry Phillips and Lucas Schott finished fourth and fifth, respectively.Dereck Ramirez, 16th-starting Kenny Gaddis, Jake O'Neil, 20th-starting Joe Duvall and Lance Town completed the top 10.Tire issues plagued the field in the main event. Both O'Neil and Town ducked into the pits for fresh rubber during the lap-17 caution and both found their way back to the front for top-10 finishes. Others were not so fortunate, including USRA Modified national points leader Darron Fuqua who fell out with four laps to go while running fourth.The touring USMTS titans take Thursday off as they get set to join the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at the 8th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals this Friday and Saturday, July 20-21.Both divisions will compete in double qualifying heat races on Friday with a pair of 20-car qualifying features for the USMTS Modifieds that will lock in eight drivers from each into Saturday's $8,000-to-win championship race.To learn more about the United States Modified Touring Series, visit www.usmts.com online or call 515-832-7944.

  19. VanderBeek golden in Brown County USMTS tilt ABERDEEN, S.D. (June 29)--Nobody passed Zack VanderBeek in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup main event Friday night at the Brown County Speedway as he led all 40 laps en route to a $3,000 payday and his 46th career United States Modified Touring Series victory. Johnny Scott, on the other hand, passed just about every other car in the feature race except VanderBeek, and saw a miraculous run from the 17th starting spot end with a second-place ribbon. Starting third, VanderBeek quickly disposed of front-row-starting Lance Mari and Lucas Schott to take control of the race at the onset. The 33-year-old from New Sharon, Iowa, never looked back. If he had looked back he would have seen Scott reeling him in during the last dozen laps of the race. Relegated to the Real Racing Wheels "B" Main after a tough heat race, Scott jumped into action quickly in the main event as he picked off his competition lap after lap. While VanderBeek was leading the field back to the flagstand each time around the high-banked 1/3-mile clay oval, Scott was climbing the ladder. He moved into the top five at the halfway mark, and then passed local favorite Alex Guthmiller with 14 laps to go. Scott narrowed the gap behind VanderBeek and closed to within a few feet, but even a couple of late-race cautions wasn't enough to propel him past 'The Z-Man' and the 2010 USMTS Rookie of the Year followed the 2004 USMTS Rookie of the Year to the checkered flag. Making jut his second career USMTS start, Guthmiller ran a strong second for most of the contest before eventually crossing the finish in third ahead of Mike Stearns and Terry Phillips. Defending race winner Stormy Scott claimed the sixth spot, Trevor Anderson was seventh, Ryan Gustin wound up eighth, Travis Saurer passed nine cars to get to ninth and Nebraskan Kyle Prauner rounded out the top 10 finishers. SATURDAY: The weekend wraps up Saturday with the inaugural USMTS event presented by Ironhide at the Devils Lake Speedway in Crary, N.D.

  20. Scott great in Worthington's USMTS Summer Slam WORTHINGTON, Minn. (June 28)--With the march toward the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup title at the halfway mark, Johnny Scott has set himself up as the man to beat in the battle to become the 20th USMTS national champion and $50,000 richer.On Thursday night at the Nobles County Speedway, the 28-year-old from Las Cruces, N.M.-now living in Cameron, Mo.-bolstered his position as the leader of the pack with a thrilling victory at the semi-banked 3/8-mile clay oval in Worthington, Minn.From the outside of the front row, Scott snagged the lead at the drop of the green flag with polesitter and 2007 USMTS national champ Jason Krohn of nearby Slayton, Minn., following close behind.With drivers from the front of the field to the back maneuvering all over the racing surface, the fans witnessed perhaps the best racing ever staged in the eighth running of the USMTS Summer Slam event.Scott paced the first 11 laps but lapped traffic impeded his progress just enough on lap 12 to allow Krohn to slip past and assume the top spot, but Scott recovered two laps later and regained the lead with 14 laps in the books.The third and final caution waved on lap 22, and Scott was never challenged from that point forward in winning by more than four seconds over Terry Phillips, who matched his best finish of the 2018 campaign while still in search of that first checkered flag.The $2,850 triumph was Scott's sixth of the year but first at the Nobles County Speedway, and raised his USMTS career wins total to 36 and a tie with Jon Tesch for seventh on the all-time list.Krohn, who won here in 2011, settled for a third-place paycheck and Jake O'Neil improved from ninth to fourth in the 40-lapper, but the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award went to Ryan 'The Reaper' Gustin who finished fifth after rolling off 17th on the starting grid.Rodney Sanders, Lance Mari, Zack VanderBeek, Stormy Scott and Trevor Anderson rounded out the top 10 finishers in Thursday night's blockbuster.FRIDAY: The touring USMTS titans return to the Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, S.D., on Friday for the 3rd Annual Best Western USMTS Modified Showdown with Midwest Modifieds and BCS Pure Stocks joining the on-track racing party.Stormy Scott won this race last year, and Corey Dripps captured the inaugural event at the high-banked 1/3-mile clay oval on June 10, 2011.Grandstands open at 5:30 p.m. with hot laps at 6:45 and racing at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for fans ages 14 and older, $6 for youth ages 7-13 and free for kids 6 and under.The Brown County Speedway is located on the east edge of Aberdeen on US 12, then 1.9 miles north on CR 19 (400 24th Ave NW, Aberdeen, SD 57401) at the Brown County Fairgrounds.

  21. Patient Scott prevails in USMTS opener at Cedar Lake NEW RICHMOND, Wis. (June 14)--While everybody around him was flying around the high side of the Cedar Lake Speedway Thursday night, Stormy Scott was content to take the road less traveled and it paid off with a late-race pass for the lead and his 48th career USMTS victory on opening night of the 2nd Annual Modified Masters. Hugging the shortest route around the track, Scott bided his time while several competitors pulled away, including early leader Jake Timm and A.J. Diemel, who led 24 of the first 27 laps before a broken axle sidelined the 20-year veteran late model pilot. After pacing the first three laps, Timm resumed his spot at the front when Diemel dropped out. Meanwhile, a trio of high-side haulers-Jake O'Neil, Casey Arneson and Terry Phillips-were hot on his tail while Scott continued to show his presence at the bottom of the high-banked corners. Slowly but surely, the high line inched closer to the wall while Scott started to close the gap from below. "I seen the top getting faster and I knew I had to do something so I went down there even lower and all of a sudden it's like it hit another gear, Scott said. "I just knew if I could be patient and just keep hitting my marks that I would probably get better as the race went on." O'Neil, who charged from the 13th starting spot, banged the right rear of his mount and produced a shower of sparks on several occasions as he searched for a way around Timm. Arneson split between O'Neil and Scott down the back-stretch late in the race to move into third as Scott inched closer to the front. With two laps to go in the 40-lapper, Scott was the first to reach the flagstand on lap 38 and he got there first the next two laps too, denying Timm his second career USMTS triumph and collecting a $2,500 paycheck. "They were abusing their stuff hard up there," Scott added. "But I destroyed my nose in the process-these things aren't easy to put on-but it makes it well worth it to get the victory." Timm held on for a solid second-place finish with Arneson, O'Neil and Phillips finning out the rest of the top five. USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup points leader Johnny Scott claimed the sixth spot, Josh Angst finished seventh, Shane Sabraski gave the eighth-best effort, R.C. Whitwell nabbed ninth and Jason Gross rounded out the top ten. Rodney Sanders, who won two of three USMTS features last week, started 24th on the 26-car grid and worked his way to an 11th-place finish in earning both the Eibach Spring Forward Award and FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. The undisputed best of the best in the world of dirt modified racing will be back in action for qualifying on Fridayas they battle for a $40,00 top prize for the the driver who reaches the checkered flag first in Saturday's main event. Similar to last year's rain-hampered event, the Masters is the largest event purse on the United States Modified Touring Series schedule. While the 2017 edition carried a $50,00 top prize, this year's overall purse for the crown jewel event is fatter from top to bottom. Friday will see each driver compete in two 12-lap heat races with starting positions and drivers mixed. Last Chance Qualifiers and main events take place Saturday, culminating with the $40,000-to-win, $2,000-to-start, 70-lap championship finale. Points will be combined for the two heat races on Friday with the top 12 locked into Saturday's "A" Main. The next 12 in points (13th-24th) will be locked into Saturday's "B" Main, the next 12 into the "C" Main and the remainder will run in Last Chance Qualifiers on Saturday.

  23. It's number 81 at 81 for Sanders PARK CITY, Kan. (June 7)--Rodney Sanders arrived at the 81 Speedway on Thursday afternoon and headed down the highway several hours later with a $2,500 winner's paycheck and his 81st career USMTS victory. Sanders-the 2013 and 2014 USMTS national champion-started deep in field from the outside of the fifth row, and used the high side of C. Ray Hall's 3/8-mile clay oval to track down early leader Johnny Scott and take the lead with a dozen laps remaining in the 40-lapper. Scott stole the lead from polesitter Austin Siebert after one lap around the Park City, Kan., speedplant, and set the pace for the next 27 laps before giving way to Sanders in the late stages of the exciting contest. The win was the second of the season for Sanders, and his series-best fourth at the 81 Speedway. During last November's Park City Chisholm Trail Showdown here, Sanders grabbed his third win on opening night while Johnny Scott, who finished second on Thursday, won the finale the following night. VanderBeek and Stormy Scott held down the third and fourth finishing positions, R.C. Whitwell took fifth and the rest of the top ten at the checkered flag were 14th-starting Lucas Schott, Ryan Gustin, 16th-starting Cade Dillard, 23rd-starting Jake O'Neil and Dereck Ramirez. With his runner-up effort, Johnny Scott leap-frogged O'Neil in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup points battle by three points (1363 to 1360), Sanders surpassed Schott to claim the third position with 1299 points while Schott is just another eight markers behind with 1291 markers. Stormy Scott sits fifth with 1286, followed by VanderBeek (1276), Ramirez (1250), Terry Phillips (1204), Joe Duvall (978) and Jake Timm (952). Friday will find the sultans of speed at the Dodge City Raceway Park in the Southwest Kansas town of Dodge City for the first time since 2004 as they take to the 3/8-mile dirt oval for a $3,000-to-win, $300-to-start tilt that is a must-see for fans throughout the region. The series first visited the Dodge City Raceway Park on Aug. 13-14, 2004, for two complete shows each paying $2,000 to win. Kelly Shryock was the Friday night winner and Tommy Myer topped Saturday's contest. The track was covered by asphalt the previous year. Along with the USMTS Modifieds, the event will feature Sport Modifieds, Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks. A bonus will be for grabs for IMCA-legal Modifieds taking part in the USMTS events. The top finishing IMCA-legal Modified will earn an extra $300, with another $200 for the second highest finisher and $100 for the third. Tickets are $25 for adults while children ages 11 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pit passes are $30. Racing starts at 7:30 p.m. The dirt track is 60 feet wide with 8 degrees banking on the straight-aways and parabolic 10-, 12- and 14-degree banked turns. The race track facility is owned by the city and was built with "Y" sales tax. The Dodge City Raceway Park is a 3/8-mile semi-banked dirt oval located on the south edge of Dodge City, Kan., on US 283, then 0.9 miles west on US 56, then 0.1 miles south (11322 110 Rd, Dodge City, KS 67801). For more information, contact the track at (620) 225-3277 or check www.dodgecityraceway.com. The tripleheader wraps up on Sunday, June 9, with the legion of zoom strafing the Salina Speedway in Salina, Kan. Cade Dillard captured last year's checkered flag in the inaugural event that took place less than three weeks after the track took a direct hit from a tornado. Track crews and volunteers worked tirelessly to fix buildings and lights, and repair fences that were destroyed by the high winds. The USMTS Modifieds will be joined by the BSB Manufacturing NeSmith Late Models and Auto House Towing & Recovery Mod Lites. Pits gates open at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5, hot laps begin at 6:15 and racing gets underway at 7 p.m. Adult tickets are $20 with free admission for kids under 16 years old.

During November's Park City Chisholm Trail Showdown, Rodney Sanders grabbed his third win at C. Ray Hall's palace of power while Johnny Scott won the finale the following night.

The series first visited the Dodge City Raceway Park on Aug. 13-14, 2004, for two complete shows each paying $2,000 to win. Kelly Shryock was the Friday night winner and Tommy Myer topped Saturday's contest. The track was covered by asphalt the previous year.

  25. Sorensen electrifies Deer Creek Speedway crowd with career-first USMTS win SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (May 26)--With 43 of the top dirt modified drivers in America rolling through the gates at the Deer Creek Speedway on Saturday, Dustin Sorensen led all 40 laps of the main event to register the first USMTS victory of his young career. Zakary Kriener photo From the outside of the front row-and from the drop of the green flag-the 17-year-old pro hockey prospect from Rochester, Minn., led fellow Gopher State youngster Lucas Schott to the checkered flag in a repeat 1-2 finish of last Saturday's USRA Modified feature during the North Star Nationals at the 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval in Spring Valley, Minn. The USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup win was worth $3,000 to Sorensen whose father, Mike Sorensen, has five career USMTS triumphs to his credit. Schott, 21, held off a hard-charging Johnny Scott who clawed his way forward to finish third after starting 16th on the grid while Zack VanderBeek-who raced from 14th to third in last Saturday's Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series event-started 14th again on Saturday and followed Scott across the finish line to claim fourth. Two-time USMTS national champion Rodney Sanders has collected eight checkered flags at 'The Creek' during his short career, but settled for a fifth-place finish in Saturday's nightcap for the 16th Annual A&A Electric Southern Minnesota Spring Challenge. Terry Phillips, Stormy Scott, 25th-starting Jake O'Neil, Cory Crapser and Dereck Ramirez rounded out the top 10. Dustin Sorensen (19) had to fight off several challenges from Lucas Schott (69) to capture Saturday night's USMTS win. On Sunday, the 11th Annual Nordic Nationals presented by Weis Buick GMC takes place at the Upper Iowa Speedway in Decorah, Iowa, and will see the Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods plus Cook Racing Supplies USRA Hobby Stocks on the card. Zack VanderBeek collected his first of three wins at the Upper Iowa Speedway during his rookie campaign in 2005.
