Red River Valley Speedway, Huset’s Speedway events canceled
August 20, 2012
WEBSTER CITY, Iowa -- The USMTS National Championship Series events scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 25, at the Red River Valley Speedway and Sunday, Aug. 26, at the Huset’s Speedway have been taken off the schedule.
USMTS officials received word last week that the Huset’s event was being canceled, which left a single one-day show in West Fargo, N.D. After conferring with Red River Valley Speedway promoter Donny Schatz, it was decided that in the interest of the travelling teams that the show there would also be canceled.
Plans are already being made for a return to the state-of-the-art facility in Fargo for the 2013 campaign.
The USMTS National Championship Series will wrap up on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7-8, with the inaugural USMTS National Finals at the Ogilvie Raceway in Ogilvie, Minn. The event will pay $4,000 to win each night and culminate with the crowning of the 2012 USMTS national champion.
This year’s champ gets a cool $30,000.
Current USMTS National Championship Series points standings: Ryan Gustin 1896, Jason Hughes 1752, Rodney Sanders 1672, Chris Brown 1623, Johnny Scott 1543, Kelly Shryock 1537, Stormy Scott 1527, Dereck Ramirez 1515, Zack VanderBeek 1480, Terry Phillips 1461.
