(May 9, 1999) - The United States Modified Touring Series kicks off the month of June with a bang. In what was supposed to be a four-race swing in Iowa and Illinois has turned into a three-race swing. The USMTS was scheduled to rent the track in West Union, IA but the track has been leased out to someone else for the year. These people are not interested in renting the track at this time. The races later in the year on the USMTS schedule have not been taken off the schedule as of yet.
The series will start on Wednesday, June 2nd at the new Butler County Speedway in Allison, IA. This speedway is in their first full year of racing and are getting a very good field of cars in all classes.
Thursday, June 3rd will find the series headed to the fast 1/2-mile in Freeport, IL at the Freeport Raceway. The series will end this three-race swing at the Bureau County Speedway in Princeton, IL on the fast 1/4-mile speedway.
All of these races will pay $2,000 to win and $250 to start the A-main. Anyone needing information in regards to these races can call Todd Staley at (515) 832-6321. J&J Camper Sales from East Moline will be a sponsor of the race in Princeton, IL.
