Early entry deadline June 16 for World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Red Tail Tackle
SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—Set for Thursday-Saturday, July 24-26, the 4th Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Red Tail Tackle is approaching fast, and this Monday, June 16, is the final day for drivers to get their early entry submitted and save.
One driver will leave the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., on July 26 with a $15,000 paycheck—a well-deserved reward for beating 100 or more of the world’s best open-wheel dirt modified drivers with the same goal in mind.
The Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., will host the event Wednesday through Saturday, July 24-27, with a whopping $15,000 going to the winner and each of the 30 main event starters pocketing a minimum $1,500.
On Thursday and Friday, drivers will qualify through time trials in groups of five cars with a green-white-checkered format. The top 6 qualifiers from each group will be inverted for that heat race. Heat races will take the top 12 in passing points to the “A” Main with the remainder going to one of the “B” Mains.
Points will be awarded for time trials, heat races, “B” Mains and the “A” Main each night with the top 6 in points being locked into Saturday's “A” Main. The highest overall points earner during the first two days will earn the pole for Saturday's “A” Main, second most points in the middle of the front row, third most points on the outside of the front row and so on for the 12 pre-qualified drivers after Friday night's show.
Saturday will feature an “alphabet soup” of main events with the 13th-highest points earner on the pole of the “B” Main and the lowest points earner starting last in the first “last chance” event.
An open practice for all cars will be held on Wednesday, July 23, from 6-9 p.m. This will be the only night for hot laps.
The entry fee is just $200 if received by this Monday, June 16, by 5 p.m. Central Time. Originally set for June 15, the deadline has been extended one day due to June 15 falling on a Sunday.
After Monday, the entry fee is $250 if received or post-marked on or before July 15. The entry fee is $300 if received or post-marked after July 15 or $400 at the pit gate on race night. All drivers racing all three nights are guaranteed a minimum of $200 in wings.
Drivers may enter by mailing in the completed entry form, faxing it to 515-832-7958 or by calling the USMTS office at 515-832-7944 during normal business hours.
