USMTS Scheduled For 53 Races At 30 Tracks in 2020

The 2020 United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) docket was recently released. It includes 53 dates at 30 unique dirt ovals as the tour prepares for its 22nd season.

With a new season on the horizon and new decade underway, it’s only fitting that the 2020 campaign will blast off at a new venue when the series invades the I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, on Friday, February 28. The race is part of a six-race slate in the Lone Star State over the course of nine days.

Located just a few minutes south of San Antonio, the tireless USMTS touring titans will roll two more hours south after the checkered flag waves as they return to the South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi on Saturday, February 29. The year’s first tripleheader weekend then wraps up on Sunday, March 1, at the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige.

From there, fans and racers trek north to the Dallas-Fort Worth region to the Big O Speedway in Ennis, Texas, for a three-day stop paying $2,000, $3,000 and $4,000 to win, respectively, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 5-7.

This will be the first-ever visit by the USMTS to the former 85 Speedway as the Big O Speedway becomes the new home of the Texas Spring Nationals which was held for the first time in 2007 at the Houston Raceway Park (later renamed Royal Purple Raceway).

The Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship continues Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 26-28, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas, for King of America X powered by Summit and the first of five crown jewels on the calendar.

The second crown jewel takes place June 11-13 at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin, for the 21st Annual Masters, followed by the 10th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska, on Friday and Saturday, July 24-25.

The fourth crown jewel happens September 24=26 when the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota, hosts the 22nd Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree. Last but not least, the 2020 Casey’s USMTS National Champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the 2nd Annual Summit Southern Nationals, November 5-7, at the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas.
