“WHO'S WHO” OF DIRT MODIFIED RACING HEADED FOR 10TH ANNUAL

FEATHERLITE FALL JAMBOREE

 

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (Sept. 16) – The wait is nearly over

for thousands of race fans in America’s heartland as the

10th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree is less than 48

hours away.

 

Slated for this Wednesday through Saturday, Sept. 17-20 at

the Deer Creek Speedway, the Featherlite Fall Jamboree is

the undisputed marquee event for America’s most talented

dirt Modified drivers, and this year’s event is shaping up

to be one of the biggest ever as 102 of the “Who's Who” of

dirt Modified racing have already pre-entered for this

year’s installment.

 

Featuring the O'Reilly USMTS National Tour, the

star-studded field of superstars consists of drivers come

from 10 different States (Arkansas, Iowa, Illinois,

Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas

and Wisconsin) and one Canadian Province (Ontario) as they

converge on the tiny rural town of Spring Valley, Minn.

for a possible $12,000 to win over three big days.

 

Along with the O’Reilly USMTS Modifieds, the four-day

event will also feature WISSOTA Midwest Mods, with more

than 50 early entries already in. Combined, the two

classes will compete for a total purse of nearly $200,000

in America's dream date for Modified fans.

 

Three complete shows are on tap for Thursday, Friday and

Saturday at the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval, with a

practice session and the "Night of Victory" Shoot-Out to

kick off the festivities on Wednesday.

 

Wednesday – Early bird race fans can get a free preview of

the action, and drivers will get their chance to make

final adjustments to their machines with an open practice

for all drivers in all classes beginning at 4:00 p.m. Then

at 7:30, NASCAR superstar Kevin Harvick will take part in

the "Night of Victory" Shoot-Out featuring NASCAR

Nationwide Series driver Landon Cassill, top American

Drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and 17 local and national dirt

Modified aces. Former crew chief and current FOX Sports

analyst Larry McReynolds will join the team in the

announcers booth for the call of the race. Admission to

the grandstands is just $10. V.I.P. Tickets are still

available for this event for $60, which includes access to

the private meet and greet with the NASCAR celebs, a

guaranteed autograph, a fantastic meal catered by the

Minnesota Pork Council and the opportunity to bid on great

NASCAR memorabilia, plus access to the grandstands, pits

and V.I.P. area.

 

Thursday – A field of 30 cars will start the O’Reilly

USMTS main event, which carries a $2,000 top prize and

pays a minimum of $200 to start—a hefty top prize, indeed,

but that’s only opening day at The Jamboree! Grandstand

gates open at 4:00 p.m. and the first green flag waves at

6:00.

 

Friday – Friday’s menu will kick off with the annual

Jamboree Golf Tournament in the morning, followed by a

second night of screaming on-track action. The O’Reilly

USMTS Modifieds will again have a 30-car feature field,

with the winner’s share of the purse doubled to $4,000 and

a minimum of $300 going to each driver making the main

event. Fans, drivers, crews and families will put a lid on

Friday’s festivities with the annual Karaoke Night … open

to everybody. Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with racing

scheduled to start at 6:00.

 

Saturday – The super-sensational enormous explosive finale

will feature the hottest dirt Modified pilots in the

nation battling for a spot in the 10th Annual Featherlite

Fall Jamboree main event for the O’Reilly USMTS Modifieds.

A field of 30 cars will start the main event three-wide

and 10 rows deep as drivers battle for a $6,000 top prize

and at least $700 just to take the green flag. And if that

wasn’t enough, non-qualifiers will have a chance at one of

the 24 spots in the Non-Qualifier "A" Main, which carries

a $2,000 top prize and pays $300 to start—that’s more than

most Modified races pay to win their “big one.” Fans can

begin storming the gates at 3:00 p.m. and the mud starts

flying at 5:00.

 

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, breakfast will be served

by the Bear Creek Church Men’s Club in the hospitality

area from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Thursday's meals will

be served as a free will donation while Friday and

Saturday is just $6 per person. All proceeds benefit the

Bear Creek Men’s Club. Open to all … you don’t want to

miss this great home-cooked opportunity!

 

WISSOTA national points will be awarded all three nights

for the WISSOTA Midwest Mods. Thursday's main event will

pay $300 to win and $60 to start, Friday will pay $400 to

win and $70 to start and Saturday's winner will earn $500

with $80 guaranteed to start the 24-car main event.

 

Last, but certainly not least … this year’s Featherlite

Fall Jamboree will be the final event in the Casey's

General Stores Hunt for the O'Reilly USMTS National

Championship. Not only will we produce a 10th Featherlite

Fall Jamboree winner, but we will also crown the ninth

O’Reilly USMTS National Champion after Saturday night’s

finale.
