From the speedway to the fairway: racers tees off Friday morning at Featherlite Fall Jamboree
The 19th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree takes place Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 21-23, at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn. USMTS drivers will be racing for $5,000 to win the first two nights and a big $10,000 paycheck on Saturday.
But on Friday morning they’ll be swinging their drivers and slicing their balls at the annual Club Car Jamboree Open golf tournament.
Presented by Miner’s Outdoor & Rec and MOR Golf and Utility, the annual outing for racers, crew members, event officials and fans will tee off at 10 a.m. Friday at the Willow Creek Golf Club located just a few miles north of the race track.
The contest is open to everybody, and fans are especially invited to join the fun with USMTS drivers, crew members and officials.
As in the past, the format will be a nine-hole, four-person best-ball scramble with a Texas-style shotgun start. The top three teams will score cash prizes, and many other awesome prizes will also be awarded.
Entry is just $50 per person and covers nine holes of golf, cart rental and a great meal.
Slots still remain but space is limited. To get entered, call MOR Golf and Utility at (952) 985-1500. Space is limited to the first 80 players, so reserve your spot today.
Willow Creek Golf Course boasts some of the best greens in Southern Minnesota, a pristine 18-hole golf course and full-service pro shop. The golf course is located north on Hwy. 63 to Rochester, and then 1 mile west to 1700 48th St. SW in Rochester, Minn. Visit www.willowcreekgc.com to learn more.
Set for Thursday-Saturday, Sept. 21-23, fans will witness a complete program all three nights of the 19th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree. The Iron Man Challenge Out-Pace USRA B-Mods will battle for $750 to win Thursday, $1,000 to win Friday and $1,200 to win Saturday.
Thursday is the final event in the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental with the crowning of the 2017 USMTS national champion at the conclusion of the night's main event. B-Mod drivers will earn points in both the Iron Man Challenge and Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points all three nights.
Saturday’s annual Modified Non-Qualifiers Race will dole out $2,000 to the winner prior to the $10,000-to-win championship race which will start a minimum of 30 cars three-wide on the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval. The Non-Qualifiers Race will also have 30 cars on the track.
New for 2017, a second Non-Qualifiers Race for the Modifieds has been added to Thursday's program which will pay $700 to win and no less than $100 to start for each of the 24 starters.
There will be a complete show each night. The top 15 in heat race passing points are locked into “A” Main each night with the top 8 redrawing for the first eight starting positions. An additional 15 drivers will advance from the “B” Mains.
Ticket prices for spectators are $25 Thursday, $25 Friday and $30 Saturday. A three-day reserved ticket is $80. Kids ages 12 and under are $10 per night or a three-day reserved ticket is $30.
