  1. MASON CITY, Iowa (July 30)--Dereck Ramirez has four wins in this year’s Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s. Two have occurred at the Mason City Motor Speedway including Thursday night’s win in the Mod Mania finale. Tyler Rinkin photoStarting fourth on the grid, Ramirez stalked Lucas Schott and Rodney Sanders for most of the 40-lap main event while the lead pair jousted for the lead, but a yellow flag on lap 23 opened the door for Ramirez and he happily stepped in to take control a few laps later.“I knew the bottom was going to clean off at the end there, it just took a while,” Ramirez revealed in victory lane. “When we got that long green flag everybody was throwing the dust out there, and on that restart, I knew it’d clean back up so I just stayed down there.”Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Lucas Schott jumped out to lead the first 19 laps with Sanders chasing him around the 1/3-mile dirt oval. Sanders edged in front to lead the 19th lap but Schott reclaimed the lead the next time around.Following a caution on lap 23 for a tangle between top-five contenders Tanner Mullens and Alex Williamson, Sanders again wrestled the lead away from Schott with 24 circuits in the books.Looking for his seventh win of the season and a chance to expand his series points lead, Sanders stayed around the high side of the racing surface while Ramirez used the shortest route to get by Schott for second.After a couple of side-by-side orbits, Ramirez took the led for good on lap 26.“Rodney was struggling. He was probably the better car but he just didn’t get down there fast enough,” said Ramirez who turned in a pair of head-scratching 11th-place finishes the previous two nights.“I did a little different thing to the car tonight. I talked to Jimmy (Owens) a little bit and he helped out, and the two guys over here (referring to crew members Johnny Overgaard and Marco Costa) we went to work and figured a little bit of something out.”The fourth win of the 2020 campaign for the 33-year-old from Woodward, Oklahoma, was the 12th USMTS triumph of his career and worth $4,000.Meanwhile, Schott’s bid for back-to-back wins came up one spot and 0.567 second short as he settled for the runner-up paycheck with Sanders following in third.Terry Phillips keeps moving forward and improved eight spots Thursday night to claim fourth and the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. Hunter Marriott was fifth.Completing the top ten were Jake Timm, Chase Rudolf (his first USMTS top ten), Joe Duvall, four-time USMTS national champion Jason Hughes and newlywed Zack VanderBeek.In the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s standings, Sanders leads Ramirez by 114 points (2149 to 2035), followed by Hughes (1915), Marriott (1761), VanderBeek (1741), Tyler Davis (1679), Calvin Iverson (1658), Phillips (1491), Casey Skyberg (1490) and Adam Kates (1398).Davis holds a slim 21-point advantage over Iverson in the Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year standings with Skyberg, Tanner Mullens and Nathan Hagar completing the top five in rookie points heading into an August 6-8 tripleheader.Up next: The tireless touring USMTS titans embark on a three-night excursion to three unique racetracks next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 6-8.Action gets going Thursday at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, followed by the 14th Annual USMTS Summer Fling at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas, on Friday. The weekend concludes Saturday with the 11th Annual USMTS Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout presented by Foley Equipment at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri.Mod Wars canceled: Earlier today, officials from the Ogilvie Raceway canceled of the inaugural $10,000-to-win USMTS Mod Wars event scheduled for August 13-15.General Manager Nate Fischer said that the staff was hopeful COVID-19-related restrictions in Minnesota would loosen up enough for to allow them to make this a successful event.“Unfortunately, it’s not going to work this year, he said. “We want to again thank everyone for continuing to support us and racing in Minnesota. We are beyond grateful and look forward to hosting many more fun and safe events this summer.”Currently, the 2020 schedule for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s is highlighted by 44 nights of racing at 27 unique dirt ovals for the 22nd season of competition for the world’s Best of the Best in dirt modified racing.To connect with the USMTS check out USMTS.com, like us on Facebook, follow on Twitter, check us out on Instagram and subscribe to our YouTube channel.

  2. Schott adds Mod Mania victory to racing résumé MASON CITY, Iowa (July 29)--A second night of Mod Mania at the Mason City Motor Speedway produced a second winner in as many days when Lucas Schott crossed the finish line to score his tenth career win in the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s. Buck Monson photoIn the night’s 40-lap main event, the 24-year-old from Chatfield, Minnesota, trailed polesitter Brooks Strength at the end of the opening lap but never trailed again as he sped to a $3,000 payday at the newly-configured 1/3-mile dirt oval.Mod Mania becomes another feather in Schott’s racing cap.

Last night he made it to fifth and Wednesday’s effort earned him the runner-up paycheck.Strength held on for third—his best result in just six career USMTS starts—while Zack VanderBeek held off Jake Timm to take down the fourth spot at the checkers.Tuesday night’s Mod Mania feature winner, Tanner Mullens, came from 13th on the starting grid to get sixth while defending series champ and current points leader Rodney Sanders picked his way from 19th to seventh during the contest.Gopher State gassers Dustin Sorensen, Jacob Bleess and Alex Williamson rounded out the top ten.Mod Mania continues Thursday at the Mason City Motor Speedway with $4,000 going to the winner and $300 to all main event starters.

  3. Mullens wires Mod Mania opener MASON CITY, Iowa (July 28)--Capturing his third USMTS victory of the year, Tanner Mullens led all 35 laps to top opening night of Mod Mania at the Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa. Tyler Rinken photo The 27-year-old from Wichita, Kan., was the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner and remained at the front of the field the entire distance to capture another multitude of awards that await each winner. He also pocketed $2,000. “I tried to ride around as long as I could on the bottom and was just trying to slow the pace down to save the tire there,” Mullens revealed in victory lane. “I was getting tight there at the end and it (right rear tire) don’t look like we have too much left on it.” Zack VanderBeek started from the outside of Mullens on the front row. He was second on the first lap and stayed glued to Mullens’ rear bumper until the checkered flag waved. “I could kind of hear him,” Mullens recalled,” and I think he bumped me there once but I was just trying to slow down and save the tire. I didn’t think they were going to be able to drive around me on the outside.” Mullens was in the mix the entire race when the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s visited Mason City on June 18, eventually finishing third behind Dereck Ramirez--who was unable to crack the top ten tonight--and current points leader Rodney Sanders. Then again, he’s been in the mix since the start of the 2020 campaign. He won the first USMTS main event of his career at the Lucas Oil Speedway on June 3 and followed that up with a heart-breaking runner-up the following night at his hometown 81 Speedway before winning again two weeks later at the Cedar County Raceway. In addition to three wins he has eight top-five finishes and he’s finished among the top ten in all 13 of his starts utilizing a family-built chassis and engine.

  4. Ramirez scores Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals crown at I-80 Speedway GREENWOOD, Neb. (July 25)--Dereck Ramirez refused to settle for second place in Saturday's 30-lap finale at the 10th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals at the I-80 Speedway, Greenwood, Neb., and notched his 11th career victory with the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's.Twelve times during the 2019 campaign did the 33-year-old from Woodward, Okla., wind up as the runner-up finisher, and four times in the first seven races of 2020.Since his last near-miss June 3, Ramirez has turned the corner and turned those second-place finishes into victories. He now has three for the year after Saturday's dramatic late-race heroics to steal the top spot away from racelong leader Jake Timm of Winona, Minn.Ramirez followed Timm and Calvin Iverson of Eleva, Wis., through the first half of the race before finding his way around Iverson for the second position. He passed Timm on lap 25 and showed the way over the final five laps.Timm, who finished fourth in Friday's opening round of the doubleheader at the Kosiski family's 4/10-mile high-banked dirt oval, earned the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award and was on his way to making it a wire-to-wire effort before Ramirez ruined his plans.Just one caution slowed the fast-paced feature race which lasted just a little more than 12 minutes.While Timm had to settle for the bridesmaid's paycheck this time around, Ramirez gathered a $3,000 prize and inched a little closer to points leader Rodney Sanders who struggled to a seventh-place finish in Saturday's contest.Including his impressive second-place finish on Friday night, it was only the third time in the last nine Silver Dollar Nationals that Sanders did not win at least one feature during the weekend. His seventh crown will be delayed until at least 2021.As he has for three seasons now, Ramirez drove a Hughes Racing Chassis built by Jason Hughes of Wats, Okla., who came home third in Saturday night's race after taking the green flag from the tenth starting spot. The four-time USMTS national champion sits third in the standings behind Sanders and Ramirez.Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year contender Tanner Mullens of Wichita, Kan., wound up in the fourth spot while the fifth spot went to Terry Phillips of Springfield, Mo., who won Friday's feature.Calvin Iverson, Rodney Sanders, Hunter Marriott, Cory Crapser and Tyler Wolff filled the remainder of the positions in the top ten. Wolff, who started 19th, garnered the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award by nipping Zack VanderBeek who started next to him in 20th.Mod Mania next: The best dirt modified racers in the universe are elbows up and hammer down for Mod Mania at the Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa, this Tuesday through Thursday, July 28-30.The inaugural tripleheader at Iowa's newest Action Track, will be highlighted by the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's with American Racer USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks also competing all three nights.The pits open at 3 p.m. each day with grandstands opening at 5, hot laps at 7 and racing at 7:30.The semi-banked 1/3-mile dirt oval is located off I-35 at exit 194, then 5.1 miles east on SR 122, then left on 4th St. SW (at the North Iowa Events Center).

(July 24)--Terry Phillips notched his second victory of the season Friday when the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's kicked off the 10th Annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. Courtesy of USMTS PRPhillips grabbed the lead from polesitter Joe Duvall of Claremore, Okla., with just two laps complete and went unchallenged the last 28 laps to score his first USMTS win at the I-80 Speedway since capturing the Silver Dollar Nationals crown in 2012.It was the 32nd career USMTS win for the 54-year-old from Springfield, Mo., leaving him 11th on the all-time wins list and one victory behind Jason Krohn.No driver has dominated this event like defending series champ and current points leader Rodney Sanders but the ace from Happy, Texas, came up one spot short of capturing his 11th feature win in 17 starts at the I-80 Speedway.Sanders held off Brookfield, Missouri's Hunter Marriott, who was seeking back-to-back wins after pocketing the winner's share of the prize money on Tuesday at the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa.Jake Timm of Winona, Minn., came from seventh to finish fourth and four-time USMTS national champion Jason Hughes of Watts, Okla., sped from tenth on the starting grid to collect a fifth-place paycheck in the 30-lapper.Zack VanderBeek, Dereck Ramirez, Jake O'Neil, Tanner Mullens and Casey Skyberg rounded out the top ten.Silver Dollar Saturday: The Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals continues Saturday with Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's sharing the spotlight once again with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.

  6. Ramirez reigns in USMTS debut at Stuart STUART, Iowa (June 16)--It would be a crime against dirt track racing humanity if another 21 years go by without the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's competing at the Stuart International Speedway. Now in its 22nd season, Tuesday's inaugural Smackdown in Stuart was the first visit by the USMTS touring titans to Mike Van Genderen's ultra-competitive short track. With fierce, nail-biting action everywhere on the track during the main event, the fans--a lot of them--were the big winners. Buck Monson photo Them, and Dereck Ramirez who claimed his first USMTS victory of the season and ninth of his storied career which moved him into the top 20 on the all-time wins list tied with Lucas Schott and Brad Waits--one tally behind Mike Chasteen. It wasn't easy for Ramirez, but the 33-year-old from Woodward, Okla., was up to the task, leading the final 17 circuits in the Ramirez also pocketed an additional two bonus points for leading the most lap in the Casey's "A" Main. Three nights after coming up two spots short of sweeping the 21st Annual Masters at the Cedar Lake Speedway in Wisconsin, Sanders was unable to take advantage of his Sybesma Graphics Pole Award and saw Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year points leader Calvin Iverson lead the first lap. Iverson and Sanders swapped a couple of slide-jobs during the first two laps before settling in nose to tail around the high side of the Stuart high banks. As it would several times during the race, lapped traffic slowed Iverson briefly--enough for Sanders to squirt past on lap 9. On the same lap, Jason Hughes also got by Iverson but the two made contact with Hughes spinning but Iverson getting the blame and restarting at the rear of the field following the race's first of two cautions. Back under green, Hughes chased Sanders around the 1/4-mile bullring as they danced dangerously close to the outer concrete wall. Following the last yellow flag on lap 12, Tanner Mullens made his way past Hughes on lap 13 and began threatening Sanders for the lead. Maneuvering in and out of lapped traffic, Mullens was able to sneak by Sanders as they completed the 23rd lap. Seven laps later, Sanders careened off of a back-marker that was trying to knock down the wall in turn two. Ramirez laid claim to second place and then used the uncharted middle of the racing surface to race by Mullens in front of the flagstand as they eclipsed the 34th orbit. Mullens never lost sight of Ramirez but save for a momentary peek to the outside of a lapped car that Ramirez quickly had second thoughts about, the two remained that way to the finish line with Ramirez nabbing the $2,500 top prize and Mullens settling for the runner-up paycheck. Kyle Brown, who started 12th on the 24-car grid, recorded a career-best third-place finish with four-time USMTS national champ Hughes and three-time USMTS national champ Sanders behind him in fourth and fifth. Zack VanderBeek, Jacob Bleess, Hunter Marriott, 24th-starting Cayden Carter and Adam Kates rounded out the top ten finishers. Just getting started: The five-day celebration of freedom, fun and fast cars throughout the Hawkeye State continues Wednesday at the Cedar County Raceway in Tipton. Headlined by the fire-breathing USMTS Modified, the Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge featuring USRA Stock Cars and B-Mods is also on tap.

  7. 'The Reaper' prevails in post-pandemic USMTS Park City Sunflower State Showdown PARK CITY, Kansas (June 4)--Race fans waited nearly two months to attend Thursday night's 9th Annual USMTS Park City Sunflower State Showdown at the 81 Speedway and they were rewarded with yet another barnburner from the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's.Postponed in April by government restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the event returned to the calendar when elected officials in Kansas eased restrictions in late May.And with an assist from a pair of caution flags with seven laps to go, Ryan Gustin made his way into the winner's circle at the end of a USMTS feature for the 102nd time in his 12-year career.Piloting a Hughes Racing Chassis out of the Ramirez Motorsports stable, Gustin followed up his third-place finish Wednesday at the Lucas Oil Speedway with some late-race heroics that extinguished Tanner Mullens' red hot run of three straight wins in five days.Including last Saturday's USRA Modified season opener here, Mullens won Sunday at the Humboldt Speedway--home of the next stop for the series--prior to picking up his first USMTS win 24 hours ago in Wheatland, Missouri.The 27-year-old from Wichita looked to be on his way to a fourth win in a row Thursday when the yellow flag waved with three laps remaining in the 40-lap main event.Gustin, who passed Zack VanderBeek for second moments before the caution, elected to fire off from the inside for the double-file restart despite making his advances to the front using the top side of turns one and two.Mullens got a strong jump when the green waved while Gustin slipped back to fourth and VanderBeek jumped back into the second spot, but it was all for not as the yellow light came on again before a lap could be completed.Gustin chose the outside lane this time and stayed close to Mullens as the pair began pulling away from the pack after a couple of laps.With three laps to go, Gustin nailed a strong run and overtook Mullens down the backstretch before slamming the door on him in turn three.From that point, Gustin increased his margin and beat Mullens to the checkered flag for the $2,500 top prize."Everybody's just kind of running the bottom there and I figured 'Hell we'll give it a shot up there' and it stuck," Gustin said in victory lane. "To save a little momentum them guys on the outside we had to get back down in (turns) three and four."That yellow saved us there. Without that, Tanner would've won. We'll take 'em any way we can get 'em."Despite enjoying arguably the best week of his racing career, Mullens was not satisfied with his runner-up finish."I screwed it all up down there in (turns) one and two and just stumbled a little bit," Mullens said. "I pushed the front end out and that was the end of that. I don't know. This sucks."One night earlier, Mullens was on the other end of heartbreak when misfortune found Terry Phillips with just three laps to go. His failed engine allowed Mullens to go on for the win that night.For Vanderbeek, a third-place showing was a welcome effort after posting a 12th-place result Wednesday night, but he too was left wondering what might have been."I think I showed Ryan you could carry a little momentum on the start there and just kind of get position on the guy on the bottom," VanderBeek said. "He knew what he had to do there. He was good. I wish I had went up to the top there like he did and make make the straightaway longer and diamond the corner because that's what got him the win."In his second start of the season, Jake O'Neil finished fourth while three-time and defending USMTS national champ Rodney Sanders wound up fifth.R.C. Whitwell came from 14th to get sixth, Dereck Ramirez raced from 12th to seventh, 19th-starting Cole Traugott finished eighth while seizing the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award, ninth went to Sybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Darron Fuqua and four-time series champ Jason Hughes completed the top ten.Action moves to the Humboldt Speedway Friday with gates opening at 6 p.m. and racing at 8. USRA B-Mods, Factory Stocks, Midwest Mods and Sport Compacts round out the five-division card.The Humboldt Speedway is a located 0.1 mile west of US 169 at the Humboldt Exit, then 0.5 mile south, then 0.9 mile east on Georgia Rd.

  9. Bo knows Big O, bags first USMTS win ENNIS, Texas (March 6)--The track's surface was smooth and fast at the Big O Speedway on Friday night, and Bo Day was the smoothest and fastest of all as he powered to his career-first USMTS victory on opening night of the 10th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals. Tyler Rinken photoA second-place finish behind Dereck Ramirez in Fast Shafts Heat Race #2 allowed the 32-year-old from nearby Greenville, Texas, to just squeak into the redraw for the main event."Big Daddy" Joe Duvall claimed the Sybesma Graphics Pole Award while Day started the 40-lap feature race alongside in the front row with both locked in on capturing their first USMTS victory.Day led Duvall by a nose to complete the first lap, and then pulled away slightly over the next few laps while Duvall tussled with Ramirez for second.While the track was sticky-fast thanks to the heavy rainfall Wednesday night that forced officials to cancel practice and Thursday's program, the drivers raced hard and clean.When the yellow flag waved for a second time on lap 6, a pair of former USMTS national champions-Jason Hughes and Rodney Sanders-were already looking to break into the top five after rolling off 15th and 17th on the grid.After the restart, the race remained green through lap 14 with Day continuing to set a blistering pace over Ramirez, Duvall, and Tyler Davis while Sanders, Zack VanderBeek Casey Skyberg, Tyler Wolff and Hughes followed close behind.While under caution, VanderBeek suddenly ducked into the pits and Wolff followed him soon thereafter. After changing a flat tire, Wolff returned to action but VanderBeek never resurfaced.A fourth and final caution on lap 28 set up a dozen-lap dash to the finish. Despite a valiant effort by Ramirez to make a last-lap pass around the outside, Day slammed the door shut and streaked beneath the checkered flag with his first triumph versus the Best of the Best.He pocketed $3,000 for his efforts."I'm just happy. We worked our butts off for this one for sure," Day said in victory lane. "I knew (Ramirez) was there and I knew I had to block on the last lap. I figured he was going to go to the top so just played a little blocking game."Despite having a great finish in second, it was another second-best for Ramirez who had 11 runner-up finishes in 2019 and already has two in the first four races of 2020.Duvall exorcised some demons that haunted lat weekend's trio of USMTS lid-lifters and finished third while Hughes and Davis were credited with fourth and fifth, respectively.Sanders wound up sixth, Wolff rebounded to finish seventh, eighth went to 18th-starting Hunter Marriott, Philip Houston made the most of his provisional starting spot and roared from 23rd to ninth, and Kevin Sustaire finished right where he started in tenth.If you missed Friday's thriller, have no fear because the weekend is only half done.The Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's returns to the Big O Speedway on Saturday for a second night of racing and another $3,000 top prize awaits.USRA Limited Mods throw down for $500 to win while Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks race for $400 to win.

  11. Sanders back in USMTS winners circle at Cotton Bowl Speedway PAIGE, Texas (March 1)--Rodney Sanders raced to his 99th career victory Sunday as the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's invaded the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas. Tyler Rinken photoAfter being lapped by the winner and struggling to a tenth-place finish one night earlier, the 30-year-old from Happy, Texas, rediscovered his groove and fended off a late-race challenge from Dereck Ramirez.Earlier in the program, Ramirez chased down Sanders in Edelbrock Heat Race #3 and blasted past the defending USMTS national champ to take the win.After falling back early in the 40-lap main event, Ramirez eventually found his way to Sanders' rear bumper with 15 laps remaining, and pulled alongside the leader on several occasions before a caution with eight laps to go slowed the pace and gave the front-runners a clean track in front of them.Ramirez chose the outside for the restart while Jason Hughes, who had worked his way to third from 14th on the starting grid, filled the inside lane. At the drop of the green flag, Hughes powered ahead of Ramirez but the yellow flag returned again before a lap could be completed.This time, Ramirez chose the inside line for the restart and it paid off as he got the advantage over Hughes and set his sights on Sanders.Sanders, however, seemed to gather strength as the final laps clicked off and sailed away to take the win and $2,500 winner's share of the prize money while Ramirez settled for second behind 'The Rocket' as he did 11 times in 2019.Hughes continued to run up front, finishing third in front of Hunter Marriott and 12th-starting Zack Vanderbeek. Saturday's winner, Jason Ingalls, came home in sixth with Philip Houston, Nathan Hagar, Tyler Davis and Kevin Rutherford rounding out the top 10.Remember the Big O: On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 5-7, the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's invades the Big O Speedway in Ennis, Texas, for the 10th Annual Texas Spring Nationals.The track will host an open practice test 'n' tune session on Wednesday, March 4, with drivers in all racing divisions welcome to partake.

  14. Sanders rockets to third USMTS title in seven seasons WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (Dec. 20)--Habits can be hard to break, and that seems to be the case for Rodney Sanders whose habit of winning continued in 2019 with his third USMTS national championship.Sanders, who turned 30 years old less than two weeks after securing the title at Deer Creek Speedway's 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree on September 21, also won back-to-back crowns in 2013 and 2014.Despite being considered a "veteran" of the sport at such a young age, success hasn't gotten an easier for the Happy, Texas, hustler."It's definitely tough," Sanders said. "A lot of people see the racing part of it and think they want to do it and then they come try it for a month and realize how much work it is. A lot of it is late hours and being away from home-that's the biggest thing. I'm maybe gone for a couple months at a time. It's tough to find help but it's really tough to find good help. It's grueling for sure."His grueling schedule in 2019 saw 'The Rocket' compete in every USMTS event as he swept the three regional series schedules in addition to his overall United States Modified Touring Series national title. From beginning to end, however, he donned the daiglo yellow spoiler as the Wrisco Points Leader."We had a really good year. We raced 71 times and had 20 wins and 19 second-place finishes along with winning our third USMTS championship and all three regional championships. All of this wouldn't be possible without all our great marketing partners."Eleven of those wins occurred during the 41-race USMTS grind-a winning percentage of more than 26 percent. But perhaps even more impressive is the fact that his No. 20 MBCustoms machine finished outside of the top 10 just twice in those 41 starts."I feel we have good preparation week in and week out and obviously luck doesn't hurt anything so I just feel like we had a good team, worked well together and just tried to stay out of trouble," Sanders revealed. "Usually the better you run the higher up front you are and you get to race with good guys so you don't tear up anything. We had good parts on the car and didn't have hardly any parts failures, motors ran great... I think it's just a combination of everything."That combination produced his fifth USMTS season with at least $100,000 in earnings and more than $1 million since his rookie season in 2007.Money-wise, his biggest tax return happened in 2014 when he took home nearly $150,000 in winnings. That magical season that produced a seven-race win streak during the campaign netted him $10,000 for winning King of America IV in March, $20,000 at the World Modified Dirt Track Championship in July and $12,000 with his win rain-delayed Sunday win at the Featherlite Fall Jamboree.The following year was almost as good, but it was also one that ended in heartbreak. With a $100,000 bonus up for grabs to any driver who could win three regional championships plus the USMTS national championship, Sanders trailed Jason Hughes by just four points on the final night but came up short and settled for second in the final standings while Hughes netted his second USMTS title.Fast forward four years and Sanders finally sealed the deal for the season sweep. En route to claiming the 2019 USMTS national championship, he added first-place efforts in the MSD Performance USMTS Mid-American Series, Spike Hardcore Energy USMTS Northern Lights Series, Summit USMTS Southern Series and the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit.Sanders ended the 2019 season with 97 career USMTS wins-fourth on the all-time list behind Kelly Shryock (182), Hughes (155) and Ryan Gustin (101). As a 19-year-old, his first win happened at the LA Raceway in La Monte, Mo."It don't really seem right, especially the wins and everything," Sanders added. "We kind of got two (championships) there pretty early and I didn't know if we'd ever get another one. It's a tough deal and it's pretty cool to say we've done it three times."Pushing Sanders in 2019 from beginning to end was Woodward, Oklahoma's Dereck Ramirez. A veteran at 33 years of age, Ramirez shadowed Sanders nearly every night and settled for a second-place paycheck on 11 occasions while also garnering three wins.The two racers remain close friends, which translates into respect on the racetrack, Sanders said."I felt like this year as a whole, with the group of guys that we raced against, I felt like it was the most fun. We interacted with each other more than in the past and everyone got along great, and that makes it a lot more fun"For Sanders, the 2019 campaign was another year of checking off boxes for his résumé on his hall-of-fame level journey. While a victory in four of the USMTS crown jewels eluded him, the one that did not was the one that seems to never get away.In July, Sanders nabbed his seventh Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals title at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska. In fact, 10 of his 97 career wins have happened at the Kosiski family's 4/10-mile high-banked dirt oval.Sanders noted that getting his first-ever USMTS win at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri, was a highlight of the 2019 campaign. In order to win the 10th Annual USMTS Slick Mist Show-Me Shootout, he had to claw his way through a Real Racing Wheels "B" Main and then started 14th in the main event.Statistically speaking, Sanders now has three USMTS national championships but has also finished second twice and third three times. In 12 seasons, he has 97 wins, 348 top-fives and 485 top-ten finishes in 627 starts. He's also led 3,154 main event laps.Sanders is quick to credit his crew chief Michael Bixby, parents Marcus Sanders and Cheryl Crider-Sanders and girlfriend Morgan McMann with helping him achieve success. His marketing partners include Wichita Tank Racing, ARMI Contractors, Mesilla Valley Transportation, S&S Fishing & Rental, Kenny's Tile, Paulson Rock Products, Mb Customs Race Cars, Hibner Logging, CMD Race Shocks, Swift Springs, Swan Energy, KBC Graphix, Hatfield Race Engines, Allstar Performance, Wilwood Engineering, Schoenfeld Headers, PEM Quick Change, Winning Edge Carburetors, Fast Shafts, Wehrs Machine & Racing Products, Integra Shocks, Real Racing Wheels, Deatherage Opticians, Super Sucker Fans, Day Motor Sports, Performance Bodies, FK Rod Ends, Bergman Tax, Speedway Motors, Bulletproof Tees, QA1 and Champ Pans.Final 2019 USMTS National Championship points:1.

  15. Bleess' awesome autumn continues with Grant Junghans Memorial win PARK CITY, Kansas (November 16)--On a history-making night at the 81 Speedway where crew members, fans and racers honored the late Grant Junghans and paid tribute to hall-of-fame promoter C. Ray Hall, a young driver from Chatfield, Minnesota, named Jacob Bleess forever etched his name into dirt modified racing lore.With the champagne still not dry on the Featherlite Fall Jamboree trophy he took home on September 21, Bleess gave the audience in Park City, Kansas, an encore performance with a wire-to-wire victory at the 4th Annual Grant Junghans Memorial.Following a heat race win, Bleess revealed his formula for success in the main event: "Stay consistent, keep the tires on it and not get passed."The racing surface was spectacular and racy all weekend but locked down right away in Saturday's feature race and put passing at a premium.Drawing the pole position was the one box Bleess checked just to be sure."Got that clean air right away and knew if I had the lead and just quarter-throttle the whole time and keep the tires under it-I didn't really see that many people blow tires-so I knew I was pretty good for how much I was saving," a smiling Bleess said during his victory lane celebration. "It was a good night."Bleess, who finished seventh in Friday night's Chisholm Trail Showdown nightcap, beat reigning World of Outlaws Late Model Series champ Brandon Sheppard into the first corner and that was all she wrote."When you're out front leading, you can set the pace and the guys behind you are usually going a little harder than you," Bleess added. "No one was blowing tires so I knew we were going to be okay."Remembering one of the most popular USMTS racers ever, Saturday's Grant Junghans Memorial main event paid $10,002 to the winner while each of the 24 main event starters earned no less than $1,202.Bleess was 22 years old when he took the checkered flag Saturday night, but will celebrate his 23rd birthday after midnight on the same day that Junghans was born. He would have been 31 on Sunday.The racing world lost Junghans on March 12, 2016, after a courageous six-year battle with a rare form of neuroendocrine cancer. The Grant Junghans Memorial is an opportunity for his family, friends, fans and fellow competitors to remember the good times and racing memories shared in his 27 years with us.Junghans was first diagnosed with cancer in February of 2010. Despite on-again off-again chemotherapy treatments and numerous surgeries, he never lost his sense of humor, fighting spirit or natural-born tendency to be decent to others.He was also the 2009 USMTS Rookie of the Year and that award has since been renamed in his honor.Saturday's triumph was the second career USMTS win for Bleess.

  16. Rain, bitter cold soak Summit Southern Nationals plans KENNEDALE, Texas (October 28)--With rain showers through Wednesday followed by three days of bitter cold, officials from the Kennedale Speedway Park, United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) and United States Racing Association (USRA) have announced the cancellation of this weekend's Summit Southern Nationals. After an imminent chance of rain for the next three days, Halloween Thursday is expected to be windy and bone-chilling cold, followed by areas of frost and a freeze on Friday morning. Saturday is expected to be the third straight day with lows dipping into the 30s. "This was an awesome show last year with a huge car count and packed grandstands, so we were really looking forward to this event especially after having last year's main event cut short by rain," said Todd Staley, President of both the USMTS and USRA. "Nobody in their right mind wants to sit outside for three or four hours in freezing cold wind. It might be good for watching on pay-per-view in your house, but we're not going to put our drivers and fans through that." Staley noted that an event in early spring may be just what the doctor ordered. "Stay tuned for more details about that." Rodney Sanders, who needed only to suit up this weekend to secure the points battle, is now officially crowned the 2019 USMTS national champion-his third overall and first since winning back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013. In the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series, all national and regional points events are now complete for all divisions. Following an audit and review of the season's competition, points will become official and final next Tuesday, November 5.

  17. Bleess seizes piece of history with Featherlite Fall Jamboree victory SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 21)--Jacob Bleess drove the race of his life Saturday night in the finale of the 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree at the Deer Creek Speedway. Courtesy of USMTS PR Bleess took the lead at the waving of the green flag and went on to pace all 50 laps in securing his career-first USMTS win on the world's biggest stage for dirt modified racing. "I'm speechless right now. It feels good," said the 22-year-old from nearby Chatfield, Minn. "We won here in the B-Mod like five years ago and it feels good to be back." The main event kicked off with 32 of the planet's best racers lining up three wide and 11 rows deep. Bleess rolled off from the outside of the front row with fellow Chatfield resident Lucas Schott on the pole and track champion Brandon Davis the man in the middle. Bleess may have been the leader, but he was never able to rest during the contest. Schott and Davis threatened throughout the race and pulled alongside several times-occasionally three wide with room to spare. The leaders reached the back of the field by lap 12 and had to deal with heavy lapped traffic. Meanwhile, Ryan Gustin-who used a past champion's provisional to earn the 31st starting spot-had passed half the field by the ninth lap. When the race's first caution waved with 26 laps in the books, Bleess was still clinging to the lead with Schott, Davis, defending Jamboree champ Rodney Sanders and Friday's runner-up, Jake O'Neil, filling the rest of the top five. With half of the race complete, deep-in-the-field starters Dereck Ramirez (17th), Terry Phillips (14th), and Zack VanderBeek (18th) had also cracked the top 10. Another yellow came out six laps later, but Bleess wasn't rattled by either pause in the race. In fact, he said, it allowed him to get back into clean air where his No. 21 VanderBuilt chassis was better. "I just stayed consistent and tried to keep the tires under it," Bleess said. "The yellows kind of helped me. I wasn't able to go through lapped traffic good. "Pull a tear-off... Cool down... Clean track... Just hit my marks." Davis has four USMTS triumphs at 'The Creek' but none during Featherlite Fall Jamboree week. This year, he won the Labor Day race and came into Thursday's show riding a seven-race win streak here. Sanders, who had a championship to be aware of as well, came up to make it a three-way battle for the lead over the final 15 laps but eventually Bleess and Davis pulled ahead to make it a two-way race. Over the final three laps, Davis pulled even with Bleess on at least six occasions. In the final turn on the final lap, the opportunity was there for Davis to slide up and execute a "checkers or wreckers" pass of Bleess, but left enough room for Bleess to scream past on the outside and beat him to the finish line by a whisker (eight one-hundredths of a second to be exact). Jacob Bleess (21) crosses the finish line just ahead of Brandon Davis (50). Photo courtesy of USMTS PR Bleess' first USMTS win was also his first win anywhere this season. His take-home pay came to a cool $12,700 with $2,500 in bonus money from Tralo Companies plus a slew of contingency awards including a new driveshaft from Fast Shafts and the Swift Springs "Four Corners" Award. Davis had to settle for the $5,000 runner-up paycheck and Sanders came across the line third to score $4,000. VanderBeek was fourth and netted $3,300 while Schott held on for fifth which added $2,700 to the newlywed's bank account. Phillips, Ramirez, Jason Hughes, O'Neil and Joe Duvall completed the top 10. Hughes, who started 23rd, was awarded the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award. Using his patented high-side acrobatics, Gustin climbed as high as 10th in the 50-lap feature and wound up in the 14th spot. Prior to Saturday's main event, the annual $2,000-to-win Non-Qualifiers Race was a thriller itself with R.C. Whitwell scoring his second NQ contest of the weekend. Make plans now to attend the 22nd Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 17-19, 2020, at the Deer Creek Speedway. With his better finish, Sanders claimed the points title over Ramirez in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit after an incredible grind of 19 nights of racing that began Aug. 1 and ended Saturday night. Summit Southern Nationals next: While Saturday's show was the final points race in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup, the 2019 USMTS National Champion will be determined at the 2nd Annual Summit Southern Nationals at the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas. Set for on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 31 through Nov. 2, the race will also feature USRA Factory Stocks and USRA Limited Mods on the card. Junghans Memorial Nov. 16: The USMTS season concludes on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15-16 with the year's only non-points races at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan. The 3rd Annual Chisholm Trail Showdown will take place on Friday and pay $3,000 to win. The 4th Annual Grant Junghans Memorial happens on Saturday-one day before Grant's birthday-and will once again pay $10,002 to win and $1,202 to start.

  18. Sanders best of the best in Friday Featherlite Fall Jamboree thriller SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 20)--Magical things just seem to happen between the walls of the Deer Creek Speedway when the United States Modified Touring Series is in town, and the racing gods bestowed yet another badass blessing on the race fans Friday during the second night of the 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree. When considering the amount of sheer excitement throughout the evening's 40-lap main event, perhaps the best move of the night took place when Jake Timm, Blake Arndt and Kyle Brown climbed from their destroyed race cars after a frightening crash on the opening lap. Replays from the live RacinDirt.tv broadcast showed Jason Hughes and Arndt make contact near the end of the back-stretch while battling in the middle of the pack. Arndt shot up the track into a helpless Timm who then smacked the concrete wall and went into a series of end-over-end flips, nearly exiting the track. Brown, who used a provisional in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup to get the 30th starting spot, was also collected in the melee. Ultimately, after a few tense moments, all three racers emerged from the twisted metal without serious injury. On the restart, cars became bunched up coming to the flagstand which forced one car off the track and brought about the race's second slow-down before a single lap could be completed. Finally under green, Dustin Sorensen took control from the pole position and proceeded to set a blistering pace around the extreme high side of the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval with Austin Siebert and Jake O'Neil challenging the second-generation speedster. USMTS national points leader Rodney Sanders joined the fray and O'Neil used the occasion to grab second place from Siebert as they raced three-wide behind Sorensen. With Sorensen, O'Neil and Sanders dragging each other around the top of the track, the caution flew on lap 13 just as the leaders had caught the back of the field. When the green flag returned, Sanders took advantage and slipped by O'Neil for second while 14th-starting Jacob Bleess took fourth away from Hunter Marriott. A slight bobble in turn two was all that Sanders needed to make a run on Sorensen, and the two-time USMTS national champ slid past the 18-year old for the lead on lap 24. The final 16 laps were nothing short of incredible. While Sanders continued to hold serve, O'Neil followed in his tire tracks with Sorensen right behind and Marriott trailing in fourth. Meanwhile, Thursday night winner Dereck Ramirez (from 24th) and Zack VanderBeek (from 22nd) had cracked the top ten and battling to get into the top five. Lapped cars gain became a factor with ten laps remaining. Sanders and O'Neil broke away slightly and waged a hearty battle through traffic when suddenly the yellow lights came on and caution flew over the speedway with just two laps to go. On the restart, O'Neil was a bit slow to fire but caught Sanders by the time they reached back-stretch while Sorensen tip-toed his way around the low side of the racing surface and Ramirez tried to squeeze in through the middle. Entering the final corner coming to the checkered flag, O'Neil shot to the low side and began a huge slide up the track but was restrained enough to give Sanders a car's width to squirt around the top and speed past to take the win. As O'Neil tucked in behind Sanders, Sorensen snuck underneath for second while Ramirez passed 20 of his fellow competitors en route to a fourth-place finish and VanderBeek drive by 17 cars to register his second top-five in as many nights. Top three (from left to right): runner-up Dustin Sorensen, winner Rodney Sanders and third-place finisher Jake O'Neil. Not to be outdone, track champion Brandon Davis passed 20 cars too, finishing seventh behind Marriott with Bleess, Hughes and 21st-starting Lucas Schott rounding out the top ten. "Dustin had a good car and he had a fast pace early, and I was just trying to save my stuff there," Sanders told USMTS announcer Chris Stepan in victory lane. "I kind of moved up there after I got by him and I felt like I was just kind of spinning my wheels a little bit. I saw Jake back underneath me and moved back down. With his ninth career USMTS victory at 'The Creek' and 96th overall in USMTS competition, Sanders pocketed $5,000 and took another step closer to securing his third national title. "It was a fun race. I've got to thank Jake and Dustin and all those guys for running hard and clean. Jake threw a 'Hail Mary' at the end but he left me room. It's fun when you can race hard with people like that but not tear up anything." Eartlier in the program, the Stoen Racing Engines "Dash 4 Cash" featured the drivers with the fastest one-lap time in each heat race competing for $1,000 to win. Hughes held off O'Neil for the win, followed by Marriott, Sanders, Ethan Dotson and Travis Saurer. In addition to $2,000 in cold, hard cash for the eight-lap sprint, the six drivers also earned contingency awards and product from Callies Performance Products, Construction Partnership, Inc., Jobbers Parts Warehouse, Kevko Racing Oil Pans & Components, National Fleet Graphics and Spyder High Performance Filters. Jason Hughes won the Stoen "Dash 4 Cash" race. The 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree continues Saturday, and race fans will witness a complete program with the winner of Saturday's championship pocketing $10,000. Thirty cars will start the main event which will go three-wide for the green flag start. The 30-car Non-Qualifiers Race will pay $2,000 to win. The pit gate opens at 3 p.m., grandstands open at 4, opening ceremonies begin at 5:45 and racing gets underway at 6 p.m. For fans unable to attend in person, all three nights of the 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree will be broadcast live at RacinDirt.TV.

  19. Ramirez, Deer Creek bury the hatchet in Featherlite Fall Jamboree lid-lifter SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 19)--Dereck Ramirez watched the monkey on his back grow old, but the 32-year-old from Woodward, Okla., finally laid it to rest Thursday on opening night of the 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree. Courtesy of USMTS PR Ramirez started on the outside of the front row and followed polesitter Joel Alberts for the first six laps of Thursday's main event before powering to the front. Besides Alberts, Ramirez was also challenged by Adam Hensel, Zack VanderBeek and Rodney Sanders during the first half of the 40-lapper but eventually he checked out with Sanders to settle it among themselves. It seemed fitting since the pair are ranked first and second in both the Casey's General Stores USMTS National Championship points battle and USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit which wraps up with the conclusion of Saturday's race. Lapped traffic came into play during the final dozen laps, but despite his best efforts Sanders had to settle for the runner-up paycheck while Ramirez broke through for his third win of the season and eighth of his USMTS career. In doing so, Ramirez also buried the hatchet with the Deer Creek Speedway. "This is one of them places where in racing this is where you shine-Eldora for the Late Models; Deer Creek for the Modifieds-and it's so great to actually do it," an emotional Ramirez said in victory lane. "I've struggled and struggled here, and I finally got something figured out. I think we got something to work with." Thursday's event was the 108th United States Modified Touring Series race at the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval near Spring Valley, Minn. For Ramirez, it was his 80th attempt but first trip to the winner's circle here. "It was good," he said of his Cornett-powered No. 4r Hughes Chassis. "I'm so happy to run good here. You've got probably the greatest fans in dirt track racing for us, and I just never ran good here. I never showed my true talent to these people and I'm glad it shined tonight. "I usually don't drink, but I think tonight's the night I probably get drunk." While Ramirez avoided a 13th second-place finish this season and instead picked up his eighth career USMTS win, Sanders held off 2019 track champion Brandon Davis who clawed his way from 12th on the grid to finish third. It ended a streak of seven straight wins at the track for Davis, including the Labor Day Weekend event which gave him his eighth career USMTS victory. Top three (from left to right): second-place finisher Rodney Sanders, winner Dereck Ramirez and third-place finisher Brandon Davis. (Courtesy of USMTS PR) Hunter Marriott made a late-race pass to steal fourth away from VanderBeek while Dustin Sorensen, Jake Timm, Alberts, Jake O'Neil and Brad Waits rounded out the top ten.

  23. Phillips finds $4,000 and fourth 'Hunt' win in Casino Speedway's Sandy Benson Memorial WATERTOWN, S.D. (Aug. 25)--Terry Phillips capped off a big week of USMTS racing on Sunday with a hard-earned $4,000 victory in the Sandy Benson Memorial at the Casino Speedway in Watertown, S.D.Phillips may very well be the hottest driver on dirt right now. If not for a last-lap pass by Jake O'Neil one night earlier, Phillips would be riding a three-race wins streak into Labor Day Weekend.O'Neil gave it his all in his attempt to ruin Phillips' party again Sunday, but this time Phillips was too strong and led O'Neil and Rodney Sanders to the checkered flag after 40 rowdy laps around the quarter-mile bullring on the shores of Lake Kampeska.During this four-night stretch, leading a USMTS main event has been treacherous, and it proved to be the case again Sunday when Ryan Gustin smacked a lapped car while leading on lap 20.Phillips nearly collided with the two tangled racecars but was able to avoid damage. He set the pace when the field went back to green while Gustin limped back to his pit area and out of the contest.Despite tight racing between lapped traffic and O'Neil threatening around the top side of the track, the 53-year-old racer from Springfield, Mo., maintained his composure and went on to claim his fifth win of the 2019 season-four of which have come in the month of August."Just trying to be careful-lapped cars and stuff, leading again-don't know if I'm a sitting duck or what," a smiling Phillips said in victory lane. "This is why we do this thing. These victories with a lot of good race fans out there... that's why we do it."I'll tell you what, I might be twice as old as all these guys but I feel like 25 when I'm in this thing.O'Neil, Sanders, Hunter Marriott and Dereck Ramirez took home the rest of the first five spots while sixth through tenth went to Adam Kates, Jon Tesch, Jayson Good, David McDonald and Brent Dutenhoffer."He (Gustin) had a good car," Phillips added. "but that's the deal with this series. This is the best Modified drivers in the country, bar none. And if anybody wants to argue that, come get some. That's what I'm saying... every one of them. I race a lot of other stuff too but I'm talking Late Model drivers, all of them. Come get some. When you win one of these with these guys, it makes you proud."Three colossal blockbusters await the tireless USMTS touring titans next weekend in the corner where Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin meet.On Friday, the series competes in the 7th Annual Dahl Chevrolet Buick GMC End of Summer Bash presented by Edelbrock at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wis. Saturday takes the USMTS to the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., for the 14th Annual J&S JCB Labor Day Duel presented by FK Rod Ends and the tripleheader wraps up Sunday, Sept. 1, with the 7th Annual USMTS War in West Union presented by KSE at the Fayette County Speedway in West Union, Iowa.To connect with the United States Modified Touring Series, visit usmts.com.

  24. O'Neil wows Worthington crowd with last-lap pass WORTHINGTON, Minn. (Aug. 24)--Ever since Terry Philips nipped Dereck Ramirez by two one-thousandths of a second for the win on the first night of 'The Hunt' three weeks ago, the racing in the USMTS has been nothing short of incredible.Saturday night was more of the same.After a riveting 39 laps of racing around the Nobles County Speedway, the winner's paycheck at the 9th Annual USMTS Summer Slam presented by Beyea Custom Headers came down to a pass for the lead on the 40th and final lap of the main event.One of the hottest drivers in the sport during the month of August, Phillips took command at the start of the race and set the pace for ten laps but tagged the guardrail in turn two, allowing Jon Tesch to take over the top spot.Tesch led the procession around the extreme high side of the 1/4-mile clay oval for four circuits before he smacked the back-stretch wall and came to a stop at the top of turn three, ending his night and bringing out the race's first caution.That gave the lead back to Phillips with Jake O'Neil and Ryan Gustin trading punches for the runner-up spot behind the veteran racer.O'Neil eventually gained a solid grip on second place, and let Phillips know on several occasions that he was not going away.Battling heavy lapped traffic the final three laps, Phillips took the white flag with O'Neil on his rear bumper, and the scooted around the low side as O'Neil churned the dark cushion around the high side.On their way out of turn two, O'Neil pulled alongside of Phillips and beat him in the race to turn three. That was all she wrote, as the Tucson, Ariz., native kept Phillips behind him for the last few hundred feet and collected his seventh career USMTS win.The $3,000 triumph was also the fourth of the 2019 campaign and second of the weekend for the 27-year-old while Phillips had to settle for back-to-back runner-up finishes in this event.Gustin held firm for third with Hunter Marriott and Dereck Ramirez completing the top five. Adam Kates, Don Gerritsen Jr., Kyle Brown, Travis Saurer and Daniel Hilsabeck were sixth through tenth, respectively.Kates advanced eight positions overall for the night to earn the Eibach Spring Forward Award, and nine spots in the feature race to take home an extra one hundred bucks as the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award winner.Sunday for Sandy: Another classic is expected when the Casino Speedway in Watertown, S.D., hosts the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup powered by Summit on Sunday, Aug. 25, to celebrate the life of Sandy Benson, the track's "Chairman of the Board."Presented by Riddle's Jewelry and Jurgens Printing, the Sandy Benson Memorial will carry a top prize of $4,000 for the USMTS road warriors. On top of that, Wissota Midwest Mods will grapple for a $2,000 top prize and Wissota Street Stocks are looking at $1,500 to win their main event.Fans can expect to see USMTS legend Jon Tesch at his hometown track as he pilots a USMTS Modified out of the Ramirez Motorsports stable. The Wizard of Watertown' will be shooting for his third career victory in the 11th running of the USMTS Summer Slam presented by Out-Pace Racing Products.In addition to Tesch, Zack VanderBeek is also a two-time winner in Watertown. Tommy Myer took down the win in the first visit here in 2005 with Watertown's Scott Ward getting his first and only USMTS victory here in 2007. Al Hejna and Kelly Shryock picked up wins here in 2009 and 2011, respectively, while Ryan Gustin (2017) and Johnny Scott (2018) are the most recent winners here.The pit gate opens at 4 p.m. and grandstands open at 5.

  25. Phillips reaps rewards in Rocket-Reaper madness at Rock Rapids ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa (Aug. 23)--With less than eight laps to go in the main event Friday night at the Rapid Speedway, an unusual turn of events paved the way for Terry Phillips to collect his fourth Casey's General Stores USMTS National Championship victory of the 2019 campaign.From the outside of the front row, Ryan Gustin took charge at the drop of the green flag. A two-time winner of the USMTS Rapid Rumble presented by Wrisco, 'The Reaper' set a torrid pace for the first half of the race while Phillips pressured him the whole way.The only other driver with two career wins at the 3/8-mile clay oval in the Northwest corner of Iowa, Rodney Sanders raced by Phillips just shy of halfway in the 40-lapper, and disposed of Gustin on the 22nd lap.The race's second caution occurred with 30 laps complete when Jake O'Neil, who was running fourth and looking to back up his win on Thursday night in Webster City, spun into the infield at the exit of turn four.The yellow flag slowed the pace and wiped out a sizeable advantage for Sanders, but Gustin had been reeling in 'The Rocket' since finding new life tip-toeing around the high side of the turns.When the green flag returned, Phillips tried to stay with Sanders on the low side while Gustin made a bold challenge around the top. One lap later, Sanders and Gustin were door to door racing down the back-stretch when the exit of turn four swallowed its next victims.Gunning to regain the lead he lost ten lap earlier, Gustin drove hard into the third turn and slipped over the banking in turn four. Meanwhile, as he tried to settle himself and power back onto the racing surface, Sanders spun into the infield in the same spot O'Neil had two lap earlier.As the lead duo performed synchronized spinning, the center of the racetrack parted like the red sea and Phiillips' familiar red No. 75 came shooting out of the cloud of dust as he became the new leader.Gustin regained control but Sanders stopped on the front-stretch to bring about the final yellow flag of the contest.Phillips-a second-generation veteran racer nearly twice the age of Gustin and Sanders-nailed a flawless restart and was able to keep Gustin behind him until he streaked beneath the checkered flag with his 29th career USMTS triumph and a $3,000 paycheck for his efforts.Gustin was denied his 101st series win and settled for second place while Dereck Ramirez finished third.Hometown favorite Don Gerritsen Jr. raced from tenth on the starting grid and collected a career-best fourth-place finish with the nation's elite modified tour and Hunter Marriott rounded out the top five after starting 12th.Lance Mari also recorded a career-best sixth-place finish and USMTS legend Jon Tesch-winner of the 2007 event here-drove a second car out of the Ramirez Motorsports stable to seventh, garnering both the Eibach Spring Forward Award and FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award in the process after rolling off 18th.Adam Kates was eighth at the finish line while Sanders regrouped and salvaged a ninth-place finish. Polesitter Travis Saurer completed the top ten.Nobles Next: The USMTS ventures to the Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, Minn., on Saturday for the 9th Annual USMTS Summer Slam presented by Beyea Custom Headers.The pit gate opens at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5, hot laps at 7 and racing gets underway 7:30.
