USMTS road to $50k goes through Humboldt

The United States Modified Touring Series is back in action this Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3-4, with a pair of pivotal points races in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by Summit and the quest for $50,000. The doubleheader begins Friday at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., for the 13th Annual USMTS Summer Fling @ The Bullring where the stars and cars of the USMTS will compete in their 50th feature race at the Whitworth family’s 3/8-mile high-banked clay oval. Eighteen different drivers have tasted victory at ‘The Hummer’ since Johnny Bone Jr. won the inaugural event here on June 28, 2000, but the far-and-away all-time wins leader is Jason Hughes with 13 trips to victory lane. Stormy Scott has been a winner at Humboldt six times while Kelly Shryock is a five-time winner, including the first King of America Modified Nationals in 2011. On eight occasions the first driver to the finish line has been Ryan Gustin or Rodney Sanders with four wins apiece. Bone is a two-time USMTS winner here, along with Terry Phillips, Jason Krohn and Johnny Scott. Drivers getting to the winner’s circle just once include Tim Donlinger, Jon Tesch, Steve Holzkamper, William Gould, Jeremy Payne, Zack VanderBeek, Mitch Keeter, Kyle Strickler and Lucas Schott, who wired the field in the most recent visit to Humboldt this past March for the King of America VIII. This Friday night, the Modifieds of the USMTS will share the spotlight with Rays Metal Depot NASCAR B Modifieds, Tumbleweed Music Festival NASCAR Street Stocks and Home Savings Bank NASCAR Factory Stocks. Gates open at 6 p.m. with racing at 8. Cory Crapser and his Snickers-sponsored Modified will meet ‘n’ greet fans at the Casey’s General Store located at 712 E.
