  1. Sorensen shines in USMTS finale at Hamilton County SpeedwayWEBSTER CITY, Iowa (April 3)—Dustin Sorensen made the most of his opportunities Saturday night during the inaugural USMTS Spring Challenge powered by MSD at the Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway to score a $10,000 payday. Tyler Rinken photoFrom the pole, Joe Duvall led the opening stages of the 40-lap main event with Wrisco points leader Terry Phillips providing the pressure for the first two laps before smacking the concrete wall in turn 1 on the third lap.Phillips hit the wall even harder the next time around and the race’s second caution waved over the speedway while Phillips limped his damaged racecar into the pit area.Back under green, Duvall once again drive away from the pack but Lucas Schott, who started 13th, began to reel in Duvall before his powerplant went up in smoke and left Duvall with a more-than-three-second cushion over second place Jason Hughes.Duvall encountered heavy lapped traffic on lap 15 which allowed Hughes to narrow the advantage to less than two seconds by lap 20. Three laps later, Hughes was side by side with his fellow Oklahoman but Duvall remained ahead by a nose when they reached the start-finish line to complete the 23rd lap.Able to slip by Duvall the next time around, Hughes took control of the fast-paced race while Duvall continued to battle back with a multitude of other racers below, beside and behind him. Jake O’Neil edged Duvall for second on lap 28 but ‘Big Daddy’ battled back to regain the runner-up spot one lap later.Meanwhile, Hughes was cruising while Dan Ebert jumped past both Duvall and O’Neil. The next time around the historic half-mile dirt oval, Sorensen moved into contention with former USMTS national champs Rodney Sanders and Johnny Scott coming along for the ride.The third and final yellow flag of the race was displayed on lap 34, which erased a sizable lead for Hughes. Four laps later, Sorensen blasted by Hughes on the outside and set sail for the checkered flag.“When we first got to traffic there I thought I had something for Duvall and Hughes but I fell back to like sixth or seventh,” Sorensen said. “Then I got back to third on that restart and I found that slider line (in turn one) down here, and you could drive it in so far and it would stick. It just worked I guess.”Although Sorensen had qualified for the feature in the five previous shows this season, the 20-year-old from Rochester, Minnesota, had yet to crack the top ten at the pay window.“I think I just started driving harder. I was kind of being really conservative beforehand and I just kind of said ‘Screw it’ and give it my all,” he added after his $10,000 triumph. “It’s the most money I’ve ever won so that’s pretty cool.”His fifth career USMTS victory also tied him with his father, Mike Sorensen, on the all-time USMTS wins list.O'Neil held off Hughes for second with Ebert, who started 16th, finishing fourth. Mike McKinney and Johnny Scott finished fifth and six, respectively, after rolling off 21st and 22nd on the grid and defending series champ Rodney Sanders was seventh.Eight place went to Dereck Ramirez, Tanner Mullens raced from 25th to finish ninth and Duvall rounded out the top 10,Bayou Bound: The stars and cars Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s find themselves in the Louisiana bayou for their next excursion, Friday and Saturday, April 23-24.

  2. Phillips finds USMTS winner’s circle in Webster CityWEBSTER CITY, Iowa (April 2)—Terry Phillips became the first repeat winner of the 2021 campaign for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s with a stout performance on opening night of the inaugural USMTS Spring Challenge powered by MSD at the Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway. Tyler Rinken photoJohnny Scott started on the pole for the 35-lap main event but it was his fellow Las Cruces, New Mexico, native securing the top spot at the end of the opening lap. Phillips, who started behind Gallardo in fourth, fought for real estate with Scott and Jake O’Neil for the next 10 laps before securing second place.Phillips chased Gallardo for the next six laps before finally discovering a way around the 2015 USRA Modified national champion and stealing the lead with 17 laps in the books.“He was going in so hard I was having to go in hard to keep up,” Phillips said about chasing Gallardo through the corners. “I kept diving and finally he pushed pretty bad and I watched him and watched him and thought he was clear. He kept almost messing up and he finally he kind of messed up—his car got tight it looked like—and then after that I just tried to hit my lines.Gallardo’s chance at capturing the win ended four laps later when he suffered a flat right rear tire. After the caution period, Phillips was able to briefly drive away from the field while Scott and O’Neil traded blows for second.O’Neil closed the gap to a car length by the time the checkered flag waved but Phillips held him off and crossed the finish line first to collect the $5,000 winner’s share of the prize money. It was the 35th career USMTS triumph for the Wrisco points leader.O'Neil was second in the end, Dan Ebert climbed from ninth on the grid to a third-place finish, Scott held on for fourth and Jason Hughes finished fifth. Lucas Schott, Tanner Mullens, Tyler Wolff, Dereck Ramirez, Woodward and Lance Mari rounded out the top 10.One of the richest events in the history of the 110-year-old facility, the USMTS Spring Challenge powered by MSD continues Saturday with a $10,000 top prize up for grabs for the main event winner.Medieval USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks will also be in action again.

New lights and much more are already finished, underway or in the planning stages.The Hamilton County Speedway is located off US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south on Bluff St. to the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Webster City, Iowa. The physical address is 1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595. For more information, call (515) 832-6000& or check out HamiltonCoSpeedway.com.

  3. Strength wears King of America X crownHUMBOLDT, Kansas (March 27)—The first nine crowns were worn by eight of the biggest legends in dirt modified racing history, but Saturday night at the Humboldt Speedway it was Brooks Strength letting the world know that the new kids on the block are the new sheriffs in town as he wired the 60-lap main event at King of America X powered by Summit. Tyler Rinken photoOn Friday night it was Carlos Ahumada Jr. scoring his career-first USMTS victory, and Strength made it a sweep for the first-time visitors to victory lane with a dominating performance that paid off to the tune of $20,000 for the 21-year-old from Raymond, Mississippi.“I’ve got to catch my breath for a minute. I’m speechless,” Strength said after climbing from his No. 444 MB Customs Race Car in victory lane. “You sit there and you prepare for this moment… I don’t even know what to think. It’s like I had tunnel vision out there, I said ‘Golly, are we hot-lapping? What are we doing? What’s going on?’ I’m speechless.”Signs of his prowess this weekend were evident Friday night when Strength started second in that $5,000-to-win opening night feature race. Just past the halfway mark, Ahumada was the first to get around Strength, and then a few laps later Strength contacted Terry Phillips following the race’s first caution.“I got bullied a little bit by the 75 and kind of lost my head, went in a little too hot,” Strength said. “You know, I just can’t believe it. Cannot believe it.”That ended his hopes last night, but Saturday he was as cool as a cucumber in fending off challenges early from 2018 King of America winner Lucas Schott, battling through some heavy lapped traffic and then finally keeping 2014 event champion Rodney Sanders behind him in the closing laps.Several competitors in the talent-rich field of 28 starters made impressive moves throughout the 60-lapper that saw just two brief cautions, but most could not continue charging the front. Strength, however, was the most consistent of all as he was nearly perfect in hitting his marks through 120 left-handers.It was a solid effort both nights for Strength after failing to qualify for either main event three weeks ago at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, during the season opener for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s“We got real discouraged right when we started off—didn’t make either show at Crandall—so kind of went home and regrouped. Cade Dillard… man, he put me right here. Can’t thank him enough.”Strength is a contender for this year’s Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year title—an award his car builder Dillard won in 2014.While he never saw the rear bumper of any of his pursuers, several racers put on a whale of a show for the fans behind Strength. Sanders, who started ninth, and 11th-starting Jake O’Neil joined strength on the proverbial podium while Phillips rebounded from what could have been a disastrous near-spin early on to finish fourth and keep a grip on the Wrisco points leader spoiler for another week.Passing 14 cars en route to a fifth-place finish, Dereck Ramirez was the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award winner for the second night in a row. Defending King of America Ricky Thornton Jr. came from 17th on the gird to get sixth at the checkers with Tanner Mullens, Schott, Casey Skyberg and four-time USMTS national champ Jason Hughes completing the top 10.Celebrating his 49th birthday on Saturday, Skyberg got a gift to remember when he drew the Sybesma Graphics Pole for the main event which paid no less than $1,000 to all starters.A field of 92 competitors took part in King of America X powered by Summit, which was 92 more than last year’s event that was wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic. King of America XI is planned for the third week of March 2022.USMTS vs UMP at 34 Raceway: Competitors from the two most powerful empires in the dirt modified universe will come together Friday and Saturday, April 2-3, to battle at the 34 Raceway in West Burlington, Iowa, during the inaugural USMTS vs UMP Spring Challenge powered by MSD.This will be the first-ever visit to the 34 Raceway by the touring titans of the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s.

  4. Ahumada gets first USMTS win on first night of King of America XIt’s a long way from El Paso, Texas, to Humboldt, Kansas—about 860 miles to be exact—but the road from his first start to his first USMTS win Friday night was a lot longer for Carlos Ahumada Jr. But, hey, the drive from his home to ‘the Hummer’ didn’t pay $5,000 to win either. Shortly after midnight Friday, Ahumada pulled into victory lane to celebrate his career-first Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s triumph after a thrilling 50-lap main event to kick off King of America X powered by Summit that featured 91 entries. Tyler Rinken photoAhumada paced the field to the green flag from the Sybesma Graphics Pole Position and led the opening lap but slipped back to second on the second lap when Mississippi’s Brooks Strength muscled his way past the 24-year-old Texan.Strength, who is seeking the 2021 Grant Junghans Rookie of the Year Award, was solid and smooth during the opening act that lasted 32 laps before the yellow flag made its first appearance. On lap 27, however, Ahumada pulled alongside Strength as the pair zoomed past the flagstand before stealing the lead back with 28 laps in the books.The lap-32 caution appeared just as the lead group of Ahumada, Strength, Terry Phillips and Ricky Thornton Jr. were contending with a swarm of back-markers. The cause was for ninth-running Jake O’Neil whose engine exploded in a wall of smoke and left him stopped on the racing surface.When the green flag waved again, the yellow quickly returned as Strength and Phillips traded blows in turns one and two, and then again in turns three and four with both racers spinning in front of the field and Strength tagging the rear of the field for the next restart.Two more cautions occurred over the final 18 laps, each time wiping out a sizeable lead for Ahumada. With his pursuers searching every line around the track for a way to run down the leader, the 24-year-old was flawless as he sailed smoothly around the low groove every time—except the final turn where he missed his mark but had a big enough cushion that it made no difference.“Yah, it got a little snug,” a smiling Ahumada said about his last turn of the wheel coming to the checkered flag. “I tried to coast it in as easy as I could. I got a little shove and just didn’t go in as deep as I needed to and it shoved on me there at the end. Glad nobody got by me.“The bottom’s my favorite line. If the bottom’s good you’ll find me down there, that’s for sure. This is a dream come true.” Todd Boyd photoEarlier this month in the season opener at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, it was the low line that he used to track down Terry Phillips late in the race, but that night had to settle for the runner-up paycheck.Phillips played the role of the bridesmaid this time, but his second-place effort was good enough to regain the Wrisco points lead back from Dereck Ramirez, who finished sixth after rolling off from the 23rd starting spot.Tanner Mullens came on strong at the end, passing three drivers in the final ten laps to finish third while defending series champ Rodney Sanders wound up fourth. Defending King of America winner Ricky Thornton Jr. was fifth, followed by Ramirez, Dan Ebert, Nathan Smith, Zack VanderBeek and Tyler Davis.In Medieval USRA Stock Car action, Mitch Hovden picked up the win and Tony Bahr opened up Battle at The Bullring VI with a B-Mod feature race victory.Super Saturday show starts soon: With two complete shows on tap, the fire-breathing Modifieds of the USMTS will share the spotlight with B-Mods, USRA Modifieds and Medieval USRA Stock Cars for a marathon Saturday that will satisfy the horsepower hunger for any diehard race fan.The morning show starts at 10 a.m. Grandstands open and the pits will be cleared at 8 a.m. Rise ‘n’ shine racing will feature a complete show of USRA Modifieds ($2,000 to win) and Medieval USRA Stock Cars ($750 to win)—both of which were postponed Thursday.

  5. Ramirez reels in USMTS Texas Spring NationalsWoodward, Oklahoma’s Dereck Ramirez met every challenge that came his way Saturday night at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, and it paid off with a $10,000 prize and victory in the finale of the 11th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals. Tyler Rinken photoSybesma Graphics Pole Award winner Kale Westover of Blair, Oklahoma, took control at the waving green flag while Friday’s winner, Terry Phillips, quickly jumped from fifth on the starting grid to second in less than two laps around the quarter-mile bullring.With Phillips searching for an opening around Westover around the bottom of the racing surface, Ramirez made a charge around the outside of third-running Tyler Wolff to put himself into contention when the yellow flag was displayed for the first time with seven laps in the books to thwart the four-car breakaway.Phillips to the high side, gets by Westover and slams the door shut to lead the ninth lap. Westover followed Phillips to the top while Ramirez and Wolff occupied the short way around the track. Meanwhile, defending USMTS national champ Rodney Sanders joined the action up front.The next dozen or so laps were jaw-dropping as Phillips went high with Ramirez low in one corner and then crossing-over to swap lanes in the next while Westover and Sanders sat back and enjoyed the show. Ramirez was rewarded for his patience and shot past Phillips to lead lap 21.Four laps later, Westover executed a bottom-to-top monster slider to put Phillips back to third place. Five laps later Phillips was all the way back to fifth while Ramirez, Westover and Sanders battled up front with Wolff in tow.Sanders erased the advantage Ramirez enjoyed and the leaders finally reach the back of the field on the 38th lap—31 orbits since the last slowdown on the seventh lap—but the great battle that was brewing was cooled off then the race’s third caution slowed the action.Ramirez took to the low side on the restart while Sanders went to the top, but the two changed lanes in the next corner with Ramirez continuing to cling to a thin advantage with 10 laps to go. Meanwhile, 2018 USMTS national champ Johnny Scott was catfishing his way forward and challenged Wolff for third as they completed lap 41.With five to go, Sanders peeked to the inside of Ramirez but was unable to pull ahead. Ramirez responded by pulling away while Wolff filled the top line when Sanders abandoned it.Ramirez saw the checkered flag first to earn a $10,000 paycheck and his 15th career USMTS win. He’ll be sporting the bright yellow Wrisco Points Leader spoiler when the series invades the Humboldt speedway for King of America X in two weeks.Wolff wound up one spot shy of notching his second USMTS triumph while Sanders held on for third with Scott and Westover completing the top five. Tanner Mullens, Jake O'Neil, Phillips, Lucas Schott and Jake Gallardo rounded out the top 10.KING OF AMERICA X UP NEXTDelayed by one year due to the pandemic of 2020, King of America X powered by Summit is set for Friday and Saturday, March 26-27, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas. Friday night's winner will pocket $5,000 while Saturday's top prize is no less than $10,000.Eight different drivers have claimed victory in the previous nine blockbusters and the previous winners list is a who's who of dirt modified racing. Ricky Thornton Jr. captured the crown two years ago and is the defending champion of the event.This year's version will fire off with an open practice on Thursday, March 25, followed by two complete shows featuring USMTS Modifieds, Medieval USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and USRA Tuners on Friday and Saturday.If you can’t be there in person, you can still enjoy every lap of every race in every division on every night streaming live at RacinDirt.TV.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.

  6. Phillips draws first blood in USMTS Texas Spring NationalsCRANDALL, Texas (March 5)—The most anticipated opening night in the 23-year history of the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s finally took place Friday night and the 11th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals at the RPM Speedway did not disappoint. Courtesy of USMTS PRFollowing two weeks of some of the most destructive weather in a generation, race fans in North Texas flocked to the quarter-mile dirt bullring outside of Crandall to watch 71 fire-breathing USMTS Modifieds and 200 cars between all of the classes on the card.Fito Gallardo of Las Cruces, New Mexico, led the 26-car field to the green flag for the start of the 50-lap main event but it was Terry Phillips of Springfield, Missouri, getting the advantage by the time they returned to the flagstand to complete the first lap.Tyler Davis joined the action to make it a three-wide battle through the next corner, but Phillips was able to once again pull away as the field circled the racy, wide track again. He eventually increased his advantage to nearly a full straightaway by the end of the fifth lap.Meanwhile, Gallardo and Davis continued their battle for second with Joe Duvall, Rodney Sanders, Dereck Ramirez, Jake O’Neil and Nathan Smith—who laid down the QA1 quickest qualifying lap earlier in the program—grappling for positions right behind the front trio.Smith’s hot night turned to a simmer when he got sideways on lap 10 to bring out a yellow flag which sent him to the rear of the field for the restart. Two laps later, Gallardo smacked the backstretch wall and then veered straight into the outer concrete wall in turn three to bring out the race’s fourth caution and a tow truck to carry his injured machine back to the pit area.With Phillips continuing to hold the point, Ramirez worked his way ahead of Davis for second place on lap 20 and then was gifted a yellow flag two laps later to put him on Phillips’ rear bumper for the restart.To no avail, the 54-year-old Phillips left his pursuers behind as he streaked away from Ramirez and on to a $10,000 payday.If a sixth caution had occurred in the final ten laps, Carlos Ahumada Jr. might very well have had something to show Phillips. Ahumada, who started tenth, passed three cars between laps 35 and 40 including O’Neil, Davis and Ramirez.Despite shaving off nearly a half-second of Phillips’ advantage each of the final eight laps, the veteran “TP” was flawless up front as he moved in and out of lapped cars en route to his 34th career USMTS victory.“Had no clue where to go,” Phillips said after his wire-to-wire performance. “I figured they was all over me. Just when I caught traffic there it got so rough down there on the bottom that they didn’t have nowhere else to go.“Car was pretty good. Threw a little different stuff at it over the winter here and it seems like it helped. I was off a little bit in the heat but got a good, lucky draw. Anyway, car was awesome. GRT (Race Cars) hanging in there and building winners.”Ahumada, meanwhile, clawed his way to a career-best runner-up finish and a $5,000 prize. Davis bested Ramirez for third and fifth-starting O'Neil was fifth. Sixth through tenth were Sanders, Lucas Schott, Duvall, Tyler Wolff and Lance Mari.A frequent visitor to RPM Speedway’s Honeycutt Sand & Gravel Victory Lane, Tommy Davis Jr. finished 13th after starting 24th and copped the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award while taking the initial lead in the Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year Award points.The Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's will bang wheels again Saturday with another $10,000-to-win main event on tap for the second night of the 11th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals.This weekend's 11th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals was slated to be a two-track affair but due to oversaturated grounds from heavy rain this week, officials at the Superbowl Speedway have announced that the track will not be able to host Saturday’s event.

  7. Both nights of USMTS Texas Spring Nationals back at RPM Speedway this weekend CRANDALL, Texas (March 2)—The weather during the first two months of 2021 have thrown a wrench in the plans of many in the racing world. In fact, the 11th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals slated for this Friday and Saturday, March 5-6, is making another adjustment today. Due to oversaturated grounds from heavy rain this week, officials at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas, have announced that the track will not be able to host Saturday’s event. Therefore, both days are now back at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas. The Best of the Best in dirt modified racing will be lighting the fuse to kick off the 2021 campaign for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s and guaranteed to deliver some fast and furious entertainment for Texans who have suffered through snow, ice, rain and rolling blackouts to start the new year. Dirt modified racing’s best of the best will bang wheels for $10,000 to win each night as the biggest, boldest and richest season in the 23-year history of the series gets underway in the Lone Star State with racing this Friday and Saturday. USRA Limited Mods, USRA Factory Stocks, USRA Tuners and Eco Mods will also be part of the program. The USMTS competitors have banged wheels six times at the RPM Speedway, including four times last fall. After a rain-out in 2012, Johnny Scott won the series debut here in 2013 with Rodney Sanders grabbing the win when the USMTS returned 79 days later. Dereck Ramirez garnered the win last September before the series returned for the three-night season finale in November. That event produced first-time winners Jack Sartain and Brandon Sheppard on Thursday and Friday with Sheppard backing up his victory with a second straight on Saturday night. On Friday, pits open at 3 p.m., grandstands open at 5 and racing gets underway at 7 p.m. On Saturday, pits open at 3 p.m., grandstands open at 4 and racing starts at 6 p.m. With more favorable conditions and an already-prepared racing surface, RPM Speedway officials are optimistic that a test ‘n’ tune session will happen but will make an official announcement at 3 p.m. Wednesday regarding whether an open practice will be held on Thursday.
