Friday final day to grab USMTS awards banquet tickets
The United States Modified Touring Series will celebrate the sponsors, crew members, drivers and their families at the annual USMTS awards banquet next Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
Individual tickets are $40 each and are on sale now by calling the USMTS offices at (515) 832-7944. The deadline to order tickets is Friday, Jan. 19.
Headlining the honorees, Jason Hughes of Watts, Okla., will be celebrated for capturing the 2017 USMTS National Championship—his third straight and fourth overall—following a wild USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.
A record crowd of nearly 300 people attended last year’s gala, and this year’s party will once again be a joint effort for both the USMTS and United States Racing Association (USRA). Fans and members of the media are invited to attend too.
