$8,000 to win B-Mods and $10,000 to win USMTS Modifieds!! Wow! 3-Day race on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Jimmy and Bruce left on Wednesday, headed to Humboldt, Kansas, for the 5th time! to run in the BIGGEST B-Mod race around. Jimmy will represent the State of Illinois again in the "Race of the States" because he's been there every year since they started having this race. Obviously he loves it!

This year he is joined by B-Mod drivers Doug Tye, Tom Rorabacher, JC Morton & his dad Gene Morton (Hi Gene!), Darren Forrest, and Modified drivers Mike Harrison and Kenny Wallace. Gonna be a good show! Did you read that...Mike Harrison is there!!!

Tonight is the first night of racing. Jimmy passed "tech" this morning in the huge tech barn. Bruce says it can fit 4 cars at a time. Bruce also says there is a huge amount of cars there this year. The pits are full!! Jimmy is parked by JC Morton on one side, Mike Harrison on the other, with Kenny Wallace right there too.

More details as I get them....Good Luck to our guys!!!

Jimmy Dearing, I need a darker green color for my posts and I don't know how to get it. You made me one before, remember? This just isn't "Cummins Racing Green"

I got this from my RacinDirt email today...

Drivers in both classes will race in two heat races Thursday and two more on Friday from four different starting positions with 10 to 14 cars in each. Each driver's best three efforts will count toward Saturday's feature lineups with any tie-breakers, if needed, being determined by the fourth heat race.

The top 12 in heat race passing points from the first two nights will be locked into the Saturday finale with the remainder of the field coming from Saturday's "B" Mains.

B-Mods will award three provisionals (one each from IMCA, USRA and Wissota national points) from the pool of drivers that fail to qualify for the "A" Main on Saturday. A past champion provisional will be available for USMTS competitors.

Mike Harrison started his 2nd heat race in the 7th spot, finished 6th, going up 1 spot.

Kenny Wallace started his 2nd heat race in the 9th spot, finishing 8th, also gaining one spot.

It's 11:56 p.m. and they are still racing with one more heat race for the A-Mods to finish. I'm going to wait for Jimmy or Bruce to call before calling it a night.

Doug Tye posted this on Facebook last night...
"I've had nothing but bad luck since we unloaded. Practice night guy spins in front of me and puts me in the wall. We straightened the frame horns but the rear clip is moved 4 inches. Not knowing what the car would do in our first heat I took it easy, started 3rd finished 5th. Last heat I started 10th and car felt great and had to check up several times on the first lap. Video is from the second lap. (Video is on Facebook) I just had no where to go. Busted radiator and bent front spindle. Me and Dylan will patch her up and give them hell tomorrow!"
So that's what happened to Doug. Jimmy was getting ready for his race and saw Doug go off the track on the hook but didn't know what happened...not a good sign any time.

Bruce was a little down after Thursday's results. It's not easy there. Jimmy, Mike H., and Kenny Wallace all did about the same. No great gains. Bruce said they had a good crowd for a Thursday night race. Regroup and hit the dirt again on Friday! This is FUN folks! Just remember that.
