Set for Thursday–Saturday, March 31-April 2, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., the dirt modified mega-event will once again feature USMTS Modifieds and the Holley Iron Man Series featuring USRA B-Mods with cameras and crews on location all three days to film the action for broadcast on MAVTV.
Officials recently announced that this year’s 100-lap USMTS finale on Saturday, April 2, will see the winner’s share increased to $12,000 with every other finishing position also getting a boost over last year’s purse with a minimum of $1,100 going to each main event starter.
Like last year, each driver will run four heat races from four different starting positions-two on Thursday and twoon Friday. Passing points will be combined for the best three of four heat races with the top 12 drivers in overall combined passing points from Thursday and Friday’s heat races locked into the first six rows of Saturday’s “A” Main. The balance of the main event field will come from the “B” Main.
Heat race winners both nights will pocket a $100 bill with the overall hard charger of the heat races pocketing $200.
Saturday’s program will feature last-chance races and an “alphabet soup” of main events that will culminate with a stellar starting field for the 100-lap championship race that will start three-wide. Even if a driver has some tough luck during qualifying, he or she still has the chance to climb the ladder of qualifying events on Saturdayto earn a spot in the finale.
The Holley Iron Man Series featuring USRA B-Mods will run a complete show of heat races and main events each of the three days.
Thursday’s winner gets $600 with $75 to start. A whopping $1,500 awaits Friday night’s USRA B-Mod feature winner with each starter guaranteed at least $125. On Saturday, the show will pay $1,000 to win and $100 to start.
There will be an open practice for all drivers on Wednesday from 6-9 p.m. Admission to the grandstands is free and pit passes are $20.
