USMTS @ I-37 Speedway, 2/28/20

By JM Hallas

 

Pleasanton, TX.,(Feb. 28Th, 2020) Time for the south Texas racing season to kick off and what better way than the United States Modified Touring Series(USMTS). This traveling series travel extensively throughout the central part of the nation bringing some of best Modified drivers in the country. This year they make their first ever appearance at I-37 Speedway's ¼ mile, semi-banked, dirt oval as both open their season.

 

Several of the regular local Modified drivers joined in the action featuring Rodney Sanders(Happy.Tx) the defending and three time series champion. Sanders has already had a busy start to the year sweeping the 'Battle on the Border' show in January at Vado Speedway(Vado, NM). He then went west to the 'Wild West Shootout' in Arizona picking up another win over the week-long event.

 

Included on the nights racing slate were the newly branded USRA Limited Modifieds and USRA Factory Stocks. Two open practices earlier this year, plus a practice session on Thursday has given the local drivers time to shake off any off-season rust and get ready for the points opener in March. Johnny Torres comes in at the defending Limited Modified champ, with Tryton Temple looking to hold his reign on the Factory Stocks.

 

Sanders Streak Sizzles ON

Sometimes you're good, sometimes you're lucky, sometimes you're a little of both. So it was as Rodney Sanders added another win for the 2020 season in his quest for the magical #100. Sanders, who started outside row 2, quickly moved to second and stalked early leader, Calvin Iverson. Sanders kept the pressure on while still trying to conserve his stuff taking an occasion peek inside off the turns.

 

Finally, at about the one-third mark, Iverson slid up enough to give Sanders the opening he was looking for. Sanders quickly capitalized on the opportunity and took the point on lap 14. Even after a couple cautions for infield tires, Sanders would distance himself from the pack.

 

Turning sixteen second laps, the leader was up on traffic coming to halfway showing Sanders, Iverson, Hunter Marriot, Jason Hughes and Tyler Wolff in the top five. Making quick work of lap cars, the laps clicked off until lap 36 when Philip Houston pulled up in turns 3-4 to bring out a late caution and rebunch the field.

 

As green waved Sanders was out and away while Marriot and Iverson battled for second. With a healthy lead Sanders took the white flag going unchallenged to the checkers. Once across the finish line, Sanders in his Wichita Tank, ARMI Contractors, Mesilla Valley Transportation, Paulson Rock Products, Kenny Tile, Swift Springs, Integra Shocks, Bergman Tachs, Pittman Logging, Wehrs Machine, Motul Oil, Hatfield powered MB Custom Chassis, had the right rear go flat.

We've had a good start to the year,” said Sanders. “We should have maybe had one or two more, but the driver messed up. We've had a good car, we were good in Arizona and New Mexico. That's a good start for sure.”

 

When you go to a new track you try to compare it to someplace you've been. This track is really different. You can make the back stretch longer if you can run the top in (turns) 1-2. I was off a little on gear last night in practice. The dirt in the south is different than up north too. So we just compare notes to get a starting point.”

 

I knew it was locked down right from the beginning. He(Iverson) was sliding on entry pretty bad but I couldn't really make a move, the lane was so narrow. He slipped up just enough, but I was burning up my tires trying to make my move. I thought I'd burn them up, and we did at the end. On that kind of track it's good to get out front and control your pace.”

 

I could tell the tire was going off the last few laps. I started getting loose on entry and had to really wait on picking up the gas. It blew completely going into (turn) 1 after the checkers. So we got lucky. Just enough laps on that tire.”

 

We'll see what the south Texas swing does. You can be a hero one night and a zero the next. We're just going to take tomorrow like another day, prepare and see what we have tomorrow. We've been to both of the next two tracks before, but you can have an idea and they'll be totally different than the last time. You've got to be prepared for everything and see what happens.”

Egbert Ekes Out USRA Honors

At the start of the 20-lap Limited Modified feature it was GW Egbert with a good jump leaving Talon Minten and Gabe Tucker side by side, Jared Maupin and Robby Minten in his wake. T. Minten sorted out second with Maupin getting by Tucker for third a lap later. Shane Hoefling clipped on infield tire on lap 5 for a quick caution.

 

On the restart Chris Swenson, Tom Grothues, Memphis Villareal and Marcus Mikulencak tangled in turn 1. Once back to green Maupin got past T. Minten for second and began pressuring Egbert for the lead. The top 2 began putting a gap on T. Minten and Tucker battling for third until an infield tire got kicked on track for a caution.

 

On the restart Tucker got around T. Minten while Johnny Torres and Paul White were wheel to wheel for sixth. Tucker then began looking under Maupin for second but was unable to find a lane. After holding off Tucker, Maupin was back on the hunt looking for the lead.

 

Egbert would give Maupin just enough room to get the nose inside on entry, but then pull back away on corner exit. Maupin gave it the ol' college try coming to the checkers, but it was Egbert in the E&E Collision, Leons Wrecker Service, PTS powered, MLRC Chassis holding on for the win.

It's been a long time since that's happened,” replied Egbert on winning two races the same night. “I'm happy it did happen, I'll take whatever I can get at this point. Every time that I've started on the pole I always have bad luck. This was probably the only time I've been able to win starting on the pole. I didn't have expectations for what was going to happen.”

 

We ended up getting lucky, Towards the end the car started getting a little bit slower and eating the right rear off of it. I just started going a little slower. I saw those guys stick the nose in there a couple times especially towards the end. I just knew to hit my marks and not make any mistakes.”

Double Up for G-Dub

As green waved on the 20-lap Factory Stock feature Michael Keylich was first into turn 1 trailed by Ben Mikulencak, Shannon Maurer, GW Egbert and Jesse Sandoval. Mikulencak took a peek low on lap 1, then tried the outside on lap 2 while Egbert took third from Maurer. Egbert and Mikulencak then ran door to door for second with Riley Heil getting by Tryton Temple and Sandoval for sixth.

 

Mikulencak, on the high groove, was holding off Egbert and challenging M. Keylich for the point. The two were side by side on lap 7 when Wayne Laven went around in turn 2 for a caution. On the restart Egbert got second from Mikulencak and along side M. Keylich for the lead. Heil got fourth from Maurer bringing Grant Wollam along to fifth.

 

Egbert was able to get the top spot on lap 9 leaving M. Keylich and Mikulencak side by side for second. The two made contact coming off turn 4 giving Heil an opening to snag third as Mikulencak began to fade. Heil then took second from M. Keylich before he looped it for a lap 12 yellow. Back to green Egbert got out while Heil and Wollam stayed side by side for second.

 

Temple was able to keep Wollam on the high side and get by for third when Mickey Helms and Kyle Kirkland got together in turn 2 for lap 18 caution that sent Helms to the tail. Egbert got a good start leaving Heil and Temple door to door for second. This gave Egbert breathing room to take the victory in the E&E Collision, Leons Wrecker Service, Best Race Engines, home-built chassis.

 

The car was pretty good,” added Egbert. “I actually wanted to run a groove higher than what I was. I was scared to go up there not knowing if it was going to work or not. Then on a restart I had to take the outside since I had no choice. It ended up working in my favor. I may not have tried it without that caution.”

 

I like racing anything. I'll race Mini Stocks, Go-Karts, I just like to race. When I found out USTMTS was coming I was loading up whatever else they were racing and heading down.”

 

I want to thank Chad, Mike and my dad for all the help they give me on the cars. Plus my wife, two boys who help at the house and let me go do this.”

And here is the report from USMTS about this event.

Sanders draws first blood, wins USMTS opener at I-37 Speedway


PLEASANTON, Texas (February 28)--As he did all of last year, Rodney Sanders will be sporting the fluorescent yellow Wrisco Points Leader spoiler on the trunk of his machine after winning the main event Friday at the I-37 Speedway in the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's lid-lifter.

The first feature race of 2020 was 40 laps long and Sanders' right rear tire only had that plus 200 feet of rubber in it.

"It was chattering and I couldn't free in (entering the turns) and then after the checkered I felt it blow out," Sanders said in victory lane while standing next to his familiar No. 20 MB Customs USMTS Modified with a shredded right rear tire. "Early I was kind of sliding too much on (Calvin) Iverson. He was sliding up and I was trying to get the spot and I knew I was going too hard too quick."

Iverson, who was the weekend's Mesilla Valley Transportation Long Tow Award recipient after his 1,337-mile one-way trip from Eleva, Wis., to Pleasanton, Texas, had an impressive launch to his Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year campaign, leading the first 13 laps before giving way to the pressure from Sanders.

At that point, Sanders was off and running. Even a couple of late-race cautions were no help for his pursuers as he sped away each time, eventually taking the checkered flag just before his tire exploded.

"Once I got the lead I was trying to slow my pace, but I figured those guys were right one me," Sanders added. "It's pretty cool to come out with a win. Obviously we had a lot of luck with the tire going flat after the race but I guess that's part of it."

Sanders collected $3,000 for his 98th career USMTS victory while Iverson, who also blew his right rear tire on the final lap, held on to take runner-up honors in the inaugural "Rustler" powered by CP-Carrillo.

Last year's top rookie, Hunter Marriott, chased Iverson around the semi-banked 1/4-mile dirt oval but was unable to find a way around and had to settle for third with four-time USMTS national champ Jason Hughes and Tyler Wolff trailing in fourth and fifth.

Another rookie contender, Casey Skyberg's long haul from Rapid City, S.D., paid off with a sixth-place finish. Terry Phillips passed 13 cars en route to winding up seventh, Tyler Davis went from 17th to eighth, Dereck Ramirez nabbed the ninth spot and Adam Kates was the tenth driver to cross the finish line.

The hottest driver at the end of the 2019 season, Jacob Bleess ran sixth most of the race but got bottled up on the final lap and found himself in the infield before salvaging a 15th-place paycheck.

One down, 57 to go: The tireless touring titans roll on to the South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi on Saturday. USMTS Modifieds last churned the clay at Steven Whiteaker Jr.'s racetrack to open the 2018 campaign. Johnny Scott swept both nights and eventually went on to capture his first USMTS title and $50,000.

The series debuted here in 2007 with Jason Hughes and David Horner taking the wins on the first two nights before rain thwarted the finale of the scheduled tripleheader. In 2014, it was 2007 USMTS national champion Jason Krohn getting the win on opening night and Stormy Scott winning the next.

The mud-slinging USMTS Modifieds will battle for $3,000 to win this Saturday while Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks and USRA Limited Mods race for $500 to win.

The pits will open at 3 p.m., grandstands open at 5, hot laps begin at 6:40 and racing gets underway at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 for those ages 17 and older. Juniors (12-16) and seniors (62+) are just $15. Kids ages 6-11 are $5 and children ages 5 and under get in for free. Pit passes are $35.

The South Texas Speedway is a 1/4-mile dirt oval located east on I-37 to exit 4A, then 3.4 miles south on FM 665/Old Brownsville Rd., then merge onto S. Padre Island Dr., then right onto FM665 W/Old Brownsville Rd., then 2.6 miles west (6701 Old Brownsville Rd, Corpus Christi, TX 78417).

The series wraps up the season-opening tripleheader weekend on Sunday at the Cotton Bowl Speedway located just outside of Austin in Paige, Texas.

Fans and racers trek to the Big O Speedway in Ennis, Texas, for the 10th annual Texas Spring Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 5-7.

The engines scream again three weeks later for the first of five crown jewels this season when the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., hosts King of America X powered by Summit on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 26-28.

The 2020 schedule for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's is highlighted by 58 nights of racing at 33 unique dirt ovals as part of the 22nd season for the world's Best of the Best in dirt modified racing.
