The USMTS will light the fuse on Friday, April 5, with a battle at the Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram. Then on Saturday, April 6, the tireless touring titans hit the ‘House of Hook’ at the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian. The final explosion takes place Sunday, April 7, in Columbus at the super-fast Magnolia Motor Speedway for the first-ever visit to ‘The Mag’ by the USMTS.
UPDATE: A rain-soaked Mississippi has forced USMTS and track officials to cancel Saturday night’s stint at the Whynot Motorsports Park as well as the scheduled series debut at the Magnolia Motor Speedway on Sunday.
