USMTS Modifieds invade Missouri’s I-35 Speedway this Saturday


CAMERON, MO (April 17, 2000) — The United States Modified Touring Series will head south Saturday, April 22, for some exciting modified racing action. This will be the second time the USMTS has visited Missouri's I-35 Speedway. In 1999 the USMTS had scheduled a two-day, $3,000-to-win event in April, but Mother Nature did not cooperate with these plans. The race was run on a cold Sunday afternoon and finished the first day of the two-day race. The final day was run on Sunday, June 24, and Ron Jones from Zimmerman, Minn., picked up the $3,000 paycheck.

This year, USMTS officials talked with promoter Larry Kaster and decided to make it a $2,000-to-win, one-day show. This will be the first race of the season at the speedway, which has had some new changes in store for people that have not seen the speedway since last year. More cement has been installed on the back chute wall. More grandstands have been added. Also there will be a new judge's stand. This will be everyone’s first chance to come and get his or her car tuned up for the season opener the next weekend.

Also running with USMTS modifieds will be the street stocks and the chargers.

Some of the expected drivers to be on hand include current points leader Kelly Shryock from Story City, Iowa, Chad Lyle Lenexa, Kan., Mike Mashl Green Bay, Wis., Jim Shereck of St. Louis, Mo., Tommy Myer and Mark Noble of Blooming Prairie, Minn., John Allen Chanute, Kan., and Jones.

Local favorites Dean Wray, Mark Dotson, Gene Claxton, Buz Kaster, Todd Wilson, Jerry White, Joe Walker, Todd Wilson and many more are also expected.

Gates will open at 4 p.m. with hot laps scheduled to start at 7 and racing slated for 7:30. Grandstands prices will be $10 for adults and $3 for children. For more information, call Todd Staley at (515) 832-6321 or Larry Kaster at (913) 287-4131. The rain date for this event has not been set.
