(HARTFORD, S.D.) — The United States Modified Touring Series makes its first ever stop at I-90 Speedway Saturday night. The special event is the last of what was supposed to be a five night swing for the USMTS Farm Boy BBQ Sauce Northern Region series. Tuesday night’s race at Marshalltown, Iowa rained out. Wednesday’s barn burner at Hancock County Speedway in Britt, Iowa had four lead changes, with Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas picking up the win. Sanders passed Johnny Scott of Las Cruces, New Mexico a couple of laps after a restart late in the 40 lap A-Main. Sanders led the final six laps. Scott led twice during the feature for a total of 25 laps. Zack VanderBeek of New Sharon, Iowa also led a lap. He finished third ahead of Stormy Scott and Kelly Shryock. The field included drivers from six different states.
Saturday night’s USMTS special at I-90 Speedway pays $2000 to win and $300 to start.
Also Saturday, the USRA Iron Man Race for B-Modifieds pays $600 to win. The addition of several racers from outside the region to I-90 Speedway’s weekly B-Mod field should make for the season’s biggest field in the division. Dan Wheeler of Savage, Minnesota is no stranger to I-90 Speedway. He currently leads the USRA Iron Man point standings over Jared Timmerman and Cory Crapser.
USRA Hobby Stocks also race on Saturday.
Hot laps begin at 6:30 p.m. with racing at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $17 for adults, $5 for kids ages 7-12 and free for kids 6 and under. I-90 Speedway season passes are also good for the USMTS special!
