USMTS Unveils 2015 Race Schedule!

USMTS - United States Modified Touring SeriesWEBSTER CITY, Iowa — In just over two months, the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) 2015 race season begins with drivers and crews heading south to compete in 12 Gulf Coast Border Region events.

This year’s Gulf Coast action begins at South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi from February 12 through the 14. Now under the direction of Ken Hobbs, USMTS Officials are excited to see what Hobbs has in store for drivers and fans as he and the rest of the staff welcome drivers and fans to the speedway.

On the following weekend, the USMTS contingent heads north to Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas, for another three-night stand beginning Thursday, February 19th. Although events are limited at the track, fans should make a point to visit the pristine facility, which features a large paved pit area and one of the largest grandstands in the industry.

The final Lone Star State appearance during the Gulf Coast Border Region takes place at El Paso Speedway for three nights of racing beginning on Thursday, February 26. Last season, the Scott Brothers each picked up a win at the west Texas speed plant.

Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruses hosts the final leg of the Gulf Coast Border Region events with three nights of action beginning March 6. Fito Gallardo, the 2014 USRA National Modified Champion, and a host of other locals will look to defend their home turf when the USRA drivers come to their playground.

During all of the Gulf Coast stops in 2015, drivers have the opportunity to turn practice laps on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. prior to the start of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday points racing. Each of the three-night series feature stepladder payouts of $2000, $3000, and $4000 to win!

USMTS and MVT have teamed up to provide a pair of possible provisional starting positions throughout the 2015 season for drivers who compete in all 12 of the Gulf Coast Border Region events.

Two eligible drivers will earn provisional starting positions should they fail to qualify for any of the following premiere 2015 events: the King of America race in Humboldt, Kansas; the World Modified Dirt Track Championships and the Fall Jamboree at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota; and the Fall Nationals at Southern New Mexico Speedway. All races pay a minimum of $900 to start.

In addition to the Gulf Coast events, three additional regions populate next year’s schedule. Thirteen events make up the Southern Region, beginning on March 12 at Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas before wrapping up at Lawton Speedway on June 27.

Central Region competition consists of 11 races beginning at Caney Valley Speedway in Caney, Kansas on Friday, March 10 before coming to an exciting conclusion at the annual Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska.

This year’s 10-race swing in the Northern Region kicks off at Rice Lake Speedway in Wisconsin on May 14 and finishes on July 21 at Rock Rapids Speedway in Iowa during the Lyon County Fair. All Southern, Central, and Northern Region events pay a minimum of $3,000 to the winner.

Participating drivers have a chance to compete at three venues hosting their first-ever USMTS events, this list includes Red River Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas; I-94 Speedway in Fergus Falls, Minnesota; and Mountain Creek Speedway in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The Hunt for the Casey’s USMTS National Championship begins Thursday, August 6 at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas. National Championship points end on the first night of the 17th Annual Fall Jamboree at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota. The 2015 Hunt for the Championship consists of 15 races.

  1. How come the USMTS can’t make an IL. swing?
    I’m sure that the IL. mod guys would love to compete against the dirt boys.
