United States Modified Touring Series to make return visit to Butler County Speedway


WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (June 11, 2001) - The United States Modified Touring Series will make its second appearance of the season to the Butler County Speedway in Allison on Tuesday June 19th. The first race of the season at the BCS was a USMTS race and 52 modifieds checked in for the racing action on a very cold and windy day. Jason Hughes from Colcord, OK crossed the finish line first, but was disqualified for being to light. This give the win to Mike Sorensen Rochester, MN.

Local driver Corey Dripps led the first ten laps before a tangle with Mark Noble ended Dripps night early. The racing action will be exciting as the USMTS has had nine different winners so far in 2001 ten races. Tim Folkerts leads the north region standings by three points over Mike Sorensen.

This will be one of the biggest races of the season for the BCS as drivers from more than ten states are expected.

Also running will be the USMTS stock cars for $600 to win. The hobby stock class will also be running with a $300 to win a-main. No entry fee for the hobby stocks on Tuesday night. If more than forty cars show USMTS will pay $400 to win and if more than fifty cars show $500 to win in this class.

A lot of changes have taken place for the USMTS in the last three weeks as some lucky fan will have the chance to win up to $5000 in the Olympic Fire Protection Pick Six Program. Special prices have been put in for children and some lucky child will win a bicycle. A home stereo system will be given away courtesy of the Sound Room to some lucky adult. The USMTS has brought the fun back into racing and will have a special autograph session during the intermission.

Last year at the Butler County Speedway this race had more than 140 cars in the pit area for the three classes.

USMTS does realize that people do have to work the next day and will try to have the USMTS modified feature on the track by 9:30.

Some of the drivers expected for this event are area drivers Kevin Pittman, Corey Dripps, Troy Cordes, Shawn Ryan, Dan Bohr, Todd Ihde Jeremy Mills plus many more. Some of the USMTS drivers that will be on hand are Tim Folkerts, Mike Sorensen, Kelly Shryock, Mark Noble, Tommy Myer, Kevin Peters, Jason Hughes, Mike Chasteen, Ron Jones, Jay Ihrke, Todd Klees.

USMTS has heard rumors that a few late model drivers may be driving modifieds for this event and they are Ray Guss, Mike Smith, and Jeff Aikey.

Gates will open at 5pm with hot laps scheduled to get underway at 7 and racing at 7:30 sharp.

For more information feel free to call Todd Staley at 515-832-7944. The Butler County Speedway phone number is 319-267-9977.

Hope to see everyone at the Butler County Speedway on Tuesday, June 19.
