  1. 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. Rodney Sanders and Kyle Strickler will fill row two. Ricky Thornton Jr. will start from the third row along with Jason Hughes. Row four will see Dereck Ramirez and Zack VanderBeek while the fifth row has Hunter Marriott on the inside of defending race winner Lucas Schott.

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.

  2. USMTS throws down Thursday in Texas PETTY, Texas (March 11)--The 2019 USMTS campaign begins with a three-night excursion through Texas starting this Thursday, March 14, at the 82 Speedway in Petty. The Kennedale Speedway Park hosts the USMTS touring titans on Friday, March 15, and the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville wraps things up for opening weekend on Saturday, March 16. The 82 Speedway is a wide, sweeping 1/3-mile high-banked dirt oval and the facility holds 3,400 spectators in its elevated grandstands which offer superb viewing from any seat. The USMTS visited the former East Texas Speedway on June 25, 2015, with Philip Houston picking up the win. The pit gate opens at 4 p.m. and grandstands open at 5. Draw cutoff for competitors is 6:15, the drivers meeting happens at 6:45, hot laps begin at 7 and racing starts at 7:30. Spectator admission is $20 or $18 for seniors and members of the military. Youth ages 6-11 are $5 and kids 5 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $35 for all ages. Factory Stocks ($700 to win), Econo Mods ($400 to win) and Limited Mods ($700 to win) join the USMTS Modifieds on the racing card. The 82 Speedway is located about 15 minutes west of Paris and 25 minutes east of Bonham (1.5 hours northeast of DFW, depending on what part of the Metroplex you're coming from). The track's physical location is 16369 US Hwy 82, Petty, TX 75470. For more information, call (214) 682-8460 or visit 82speedway.com. The series heads to the Kennedale Speedway Park on Friday, returning to the venue where veteran Terry Phillips held off 2018 USMTS National Champion Johnny Scott for the win this past November in a rain-shortened Summit USMTS Southern Nationals. Scott is a two-time winner here with both victories coming in 2013. The series returned in 2017 with Zack VanderBeek walking away with the winner's check and one year ago Ethan Dotson snagged his first-ever USMTS victory here after a legendary fight to the finish with Rodney Sanders. The pit gate opens at 2 p.m. and grandstands open at 5. The drivers meeting happens at 5:45, draw cutoff for competitors is at 6, hot laps begin at 6:15 and racing starts at 6:45.

Factory Stocks and Limited Mods will also be racing with Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points up for grabs in both classes. The Kennedale Speedway Park is a semi-banked 1/4-mile dirt oval located off I-20 at exit 442-A, then 1.7 miles southeast on Mansfield Hwy., then 1.6 miles southwest on New Hope Rd., then 0.3 mile east on Hudson Village Creek Rd. For more information, check out kennedalespeedwaypark.com. This Saturday's show at the Superbowl Speedway is the eighth attempt, but only three times has Mother Nature cooperated with our efforts here. The USMTS debuted at the semi-banked clay oval in 2014 with Johnny Scott taking the first win that year and his twin brother, Stormy Scott, grabbing the win here three months later. Cade Dillard was the winner in the last event here on May 5, 2016. The pit gate opens at 2 p.m. and grandstand gates swing open at 5. The drivers meeting takes place at 6, draw cutoff is 6:15 sharp, hot laps begin at 6:30 and racing starts at 7 p.m. Spectator admission is $20 for adults while seniors (65+) and juniors (12-16) are just $15. Youth ages 6-11 are $5 and kids 5 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $35 for all ages.

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. He secured his first title with a 13 wins and a dominating run that left his competition scratching their collective heads. While leading 482 feature race laps in 2018, Scott also helped VanderBuilt Race Cars claim the USMTS Manufacturers Championship and the USMTS Engine Builder of the Year Award for Durham Racing Engines. He was also the most proficient in the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award, passing 173 cars in main events during the 2018 season and added the season-long Eibach Spring Forward Award to his list of accomplishments. Special awards doled out at Friday's gala included Jake O'Neil who earned the Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year Award. Former Rookie of the Year Award winners include R.C. Whitwell (2017), Ricky Thornton Jr. (2016), Jesse Sobbing (2015), Cade Dillard (2014), Trevor Hunt (2013), Stormy Scott (2012), Jason Grimes (2011), Johnny Scott (2010) Grant Junghans (2009), Brandon Kenny (2008), Scott Green (2007), Jay Poidinger (2006), Brad McEwan (2005), Zack VanderBeek (2004), Corey Dripps (2003), Justin Boney (2002), Jason Hughes (2001) and Kevin Peters (2000). Chris Clark garnered the USMTS Sportsman of the Year Award for a second time and Johnny Scott's crew chief, Levi DiMartino, took home the Crew Chief of the Year Award. The Most Improved Driver Award went back to Kansas with Adam Kates. Johnny Scott (left) and Stormy Scott (right) pose with their two-year-old younger brother, Waylon, and Johnny's hardware for winning the 2018 USMTS National Championship. Scott pocketed more than $150,000 during the 2018 campaign, including event purses and points funds. Meanwhile, his older twin brother Stormy Scott also had an impressive showing with his second runner-up finish in as many seasons. Two-time USMTS National Champion Rodney Sanders wound up third while also claiming two crown jewels during the year. He pocketed $40,000 for winning the Masters main event at the Cedar Lake Speedway in June and claimed the final night of the 20th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree at the Deer Creek Speedway in September. Zack VanderBeek picked up five wins en route to a fourth-place finish in the standings while Jake O'Neil, who led the national points early on, wound up fifth. Terry Phillips, Dereck Ramirez, Lucas Schott, Adam Kates and Joe Duvall completed the top 10 while Chris Clark, Jake Timm, Lance Mari, R.C. Whitwell and Ryan Gustin were 11th through 15th and also received points fund money. After 20 seasons of USMTS competition, Kelly Shryock tops the charts in both championship rings and career wins. Shryock has 182 feature victories with Jason Hughes sitting second with 155 wins. Gustin is third with 94, Sanders is fourth with 86 and Stormy Scott is fifth with 48 career triumphs. Sixth through tenth on the all-time wins list are VanderBeek (47), Johnny Scott (45), Tommy Myer (42), Jon Tesch (36) and Jason Krohn (33). Overall, 127 different drivers have visited victory lane.

  5. 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. Spectator tickets are $25 while juniors (12-16) and seniors (62+) are $20. Kids (6-11) get in for $10 and children ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge. Pit passes are $40.

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

Also, due to forecasted high temperatures, officials have declared that all bottles of water will only be $1.

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.

(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.

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.

  18. Last-second heroics propel VanderBeek into USMTS winners circle at Tri-State Speedway POCOLA, Okla. (May 5)--For the second time this year, Rodney Sanders had the checkered flag in his sights but didn't get there first, and for the second time this year Zack VanderBeek was in second place when he entered the final turn but found a way to win as the Tri-State Speedway hosted a spectacular main event for the overflow crowd in attendance Saturday night. Terry Phillips took control of the 40-lap main event when the green flag was displayed, and then paced the early laps around the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval before Sanders snuck by in lapped traffic on lap 18.For the next 18 laps, Sanders stretched his lead on occasion while some mind-blowing action was happening behind him throughout the field, but five cautions-including two in the final five laps-kept the field close to his rear bumper.While some were running low and others high, VanderBeek found a comfort zone by entering the middle of the turns and drifting up to catch some moister mud. After picking off Phillips, he narrowed the gap between himself and Sanders with less than ten laps remaining.Despite pulling even with the two-time USMTS national champion on a few occasions, VanderBeek was never able to put Sanders behind him. The race's final caution on the final lap set up a green-white-checkered finish with VanderBeek getting one final shot following the single-file restart.With both Sanders and VanderBeek charging hard into the final corner, Sanders remained on the lower half of the racing surface while VanderBeek powered in deep. A slight bobble from Sanders forced him into the outside lane and VanderBeek took advantage with a cross-over move coming out of the final corner.Sneaking underneath Sanders in the final couple hundred feet, VanderBeek won the drag race to the finish line to register his 45th career USMTS victory."(Running the high side) is not really my character but the car was working good tonight, it was steering good... it was all good," an elated VanderBeek said during his post-race interview. "I was really too tight down on the bottom. I was just rodeoing down there and almost lost it a couple times and just decided to kind of maintain and roll through the middle and just keep it one piece. It all turned out good."By leading only the final orbit, VanderBeek has now paced 41 laps during the 2018 campaign. Forty of those came in a wire-to-wire win two weeks ago, one happened Saturday night. His other win this year was inherited after the apparent winner failed post-race technical inspection."We've had kind of a rough start," VanderBeek admitted. "We got a win earlier in the year and had that one given to us in Jackson-the guy didn't make tech. Overall we just got to keep staying consistent. There's a lot of racing left and I think we can do that."For Sanders, it was the second near-miss where he was the leader at the final left-hander but wound up with the runner-up paycheck. Two months ago at the Kennedale Speedway, Sanders suffered mechanical problems in the final corner and slipped to second at the finish line while Ethan Dotson claimed his career-first USMTS win."He's probably one of the cleanest, if not the cleanest racer out here so I knew he was going to race me clean," Sanders said of Vanderbeek. "Them yellows at the end... I was trying to get off (turn) two on the bottom but it was so rough I had to kind of go up and come across, and I knew I was giving up a lot of speed."We had a right front shock break there at the end and I had my hands full. We're happy with second but just a little bit short."Jake O'Neil is proving he's no one-hit wonder either. The current USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup national points leader was involved in a caution on the second lap and had to restart at the tail of the 26-car field, but by the end of the feature he had clawed his way to the front and went home with a third-place finish.Phillips finished fourth and garnered an extra $500 from GRT Race Cars as the highest-finishing driver in one of their chassis, and defending USMTS national champ Jason Hughes didn't miss a beat, rolling from 11th on the grid to fifth at the checkered flag.Ryan Gustin followed Hughes across the stripe, Stormy Scott was seventh, Johnny Bone Jr. netted an eighth-place finish, ninth went to Johnny Scott and "Big Daddy" Joe Duvall was the final driver to score a top-ten.The Creek County Speedway will play host to the USMTS for the first time on Sunday and the bullring that's been delivering high-octane excitement to fans in the Tulsa, Okla., area since 1986 will see the stars and cars of the biggest modified series on the planet.With more than $4,000 just in lap leader money from sponsors, even more for the hard charger of the race, tons of contingency sponsors, an increased purse for the support class and, of course, one-of-a-kind trophies awarded by good ol' fashioned trophy girls, you'd be out of your mind to miss this event.Gates will open 5 p.m., hot laps hit the dirt at 6:30 and the first green flag gets unfurled at 7 p.m. General admission spectator tickets are $20, kids ages 8-14 are $10 and children under 8 get in for free.

  21. USMTS invades Southern New Mexico Speedway for Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout LAS CRUCES, N.M. (April 18)--The mud-slinging masters of dirt modified racing return to the Southern New Mexico Speedway on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 20-22, for the Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout and the one and only stop of the 2018 campaign at the Las Cruces, N.M., oval.Presented by Premier Waste Services, Barnett Harley-Davidson, G3 Fitness, S&S Fishing & Rental and Torco Race Fuels, fans will see the best of the best of both worlds as the blockbuster is both a USMTS national and southern series event.Las Cruces native Johnny Scott sits atop the point standings in both series.

  22. O'Neil zeroes in on first USMTS win at Canyon Speedway Park PEORIA, Ariz. (April 14)--Racing against the best of the best, Jake O'Neil was one of the best with a third-place finish on Friday, but Saturday night there was nobody better from start to finish as he dominated the 40-lap USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup main event at the Canyon Speedway Park. "We haven't run a lot of USMTS races, but we feel like we've been pretty good at times," O'Neil said in victory lane after claiming the first USMTS victory of his career. "It feels pretty good to get one and to do it here in Arizona." Leading from the drop of the green flag to checkers, O'Neil wasn't just dominant in the feature race. He ran down Friday's night's winner, Johnny Scott, to win Fast Shafts Heat Race #2 and sat atop the heat race passing points going into the night cap. The 25-year-old from Tucson proceeded to draw the pole position and then marched away from the field to claim the $3,000 first-place money by pounding his #0 machine on the high side of the 3/8-mile clay oval. "I felt consistent enough to be able to run that top. I just kind of feel bad for my equipment, it got kind of abused. That was pretty tough." Two cautions in the first eight laps allowed the field to close back in on O'Neil, and then a third and final caution just past the halfway point wiped out a sizeable lead again. But O'Neil was up to the challenge each time and drove away from eventual runner-up Ricky Thornton Jr. on each restart. In the series' first venture into the Copper State, the pair rewarded their fans with an Arizona pilot one-two finish. While O'Neil was checked out, the battles for position behind him were stellar. Scott followed Thornton to the stripe in third while Lucas Schott came from 13th on the grid to take fourth in front of 11th-starting Terry Phillips. Dereck Ramirez finished sixth after starting 16th and earned the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. Zack VanderBeek held on for seventh, Rodney Sanders rebounded from a pit stop on lap eight to grab eighth and Fito Gallardo fended off fellow Las Cruces, N.M., racer Stormy Scott for ninth. In the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup points, Johnny Scott maintains the top spot but O'Neil closed the gap to just 13 points (427 to 414) with his clean sweep Saturday. Ramirez sits third with 403 markers, followed by Schott (392), Sanders (365), Stormy Scott (364), Phillips (356), VanderBeek (353), Jake Timm (341) and Logan Robertson (295). The mud-slinging masters of dirt modified racing return to the Southern New Mexico Speedway this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 20-22, for the Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout. This will be the one and only stop of the 2018 campaign at the Las Cruces, N.M., oval-and possibly the last ever before the new Vado Speedway Park opens in the near future. Presented by Premier Waste Services, Barnett Harley-Davidson, G3 Fitness, S&S Fishing & Rental and Torco Race Fuels, fans will see the best of the best of both worlds as the blockbuster is both a USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup national series race and a Summit USMTS Southern Series event. Louisiana's Cade Dillard has yet to win a USMTS main event this year, but he sits atop the national standings and is just two points behind Las Cruces native Johnny Scott in the southern points battle. Dereck Ramirez, Jason Krohn, Johnny Scott and last week's King of America VIII winner Lucas Schott fill the top five positions in this year's fight for the $50,000-to-win USMTS national championship. In the Summit USMTS Southern Series, USMTS rookie Ethan Dotson of Bakersfield, Calif., picked up his career-first win in February, and trails Johnny Scott and Dillard in the points chase entering the Short Track Shootout while two-time USMTS national champ Rodney Sanders and Ramirez rounded out the south's top five. Other hungry checkered flag chasers expected for the Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout include "Big Daddy" Joe Duvall, Zack VanderBeek, Jake O'Neil, Terry Phillips, Logan Robertson, Bryan Rowland, Zane Ferrell and the other half of the twin Scott brothers duo, Stormy Scott. While the USMTS is the pinnacle of the dirt modified world, the Southern New Mexico Speedway has no equal when it comes to local and regional talent capable of stealing the big money. Former USRA national champions Fito Gallardo and his son, Jake Gallardo, of Las Cruces will join Mesilla Park's Bumper Jones and his father, Royal Jones, to take on the high-speed invaders. Other regulars expected include USMTS rookie-of-the-year contender Carlos Ahumada Jr. of El Paso, Christy Barnett, Jimmy Ray, Donavon Flores, Dustin Smith, Austin Adams, Terry Tipton, Zane DeVilbiss, Butch Reid Jr., Sherman Barnett, Max Sadler, Philip Houston and more. Also on the racing card all three nights of the Rancho Milagro Short Track Shootout will be Anthony Sosa Roofing Late Models, Hacienda Carpet & Tile X-Mods, Casa Nissan Legends Cars and Sun Valley Hardware USRA Stock Cars. The Modifieds will be co-sanctioned by the USRA and will earn Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national, regional and track points all three nights along with Stock Cars and B-Mods (X-Mods).

(March 15)--The USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup was back in action Thursday to kick off the King of America VIII Modified Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment at the Humboldt Speedway with 78 cars and drivers signed in for battle.Polesitter Jason Krohn led the field to the green flag and paced the first of 40 laps, but North Carolina's Kyle Strickler drove underneath the 2007 USMTS national champion to take control the second time around before the yellow flag waved for the first time with four laps in the books.On the restart, Strickler pulled away from Krohn while Darron Fuqua pulled into third and began to challenge for the second spot.With Strickler comfortably out front and lapped traffic approaching, 2012 King of America champ Stormy Scott came to a stop in turn two to bring out the race's second caution flag.Fuqua was able to sneak by Krohn back under green and applied pressure to the rear bumper of Strickler while Dereck Ramirez and R.C. Whitwell completed a five-car breakaway from the rest of the pack.Kyle Strickler (8) fends off a challenge for the lead by Darron Fuqua during the 40-lap feature race.Strickler continued to lead with Fuqua waiting for an opportunity to make a move. His chance came with four laps to go when the leaders reached the back of the field.But Strickler quickly disposed of two lapped cars to pad his advantage, and then cruised the final lap to score his career-first USMTS feature win."The USMTS guys are so good, and this is one I've wanted for a long time," a jubilant Strickler said in victory lane. "This ranks right up there with some of the biggest races we've won."I knew we had a really good race car. When they dropped the green flag, it was time to go. I just hope we can be there again Saturday for the big one."Strickler's triumph was worth $2,500 while Fuqua matched his best USMTS finish with a runner-up paycheck. Krohn, Ramirez and Whitwell remained third, fourth and fifth, respectively.Jason Strand, Ricky Thornton Jr., 2014 King of America winner Rodney Sanders, last year's Thursday night winner Mitch Keeter and Terry Phillips rounded out the top ten.The King of America VIII Modified Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment continues Friday and Saturday.
