King of America, Battle at the Bullring share spotlight March 26-28 at Humboldt

Update March 17, 2020: This event has been postponed.

The first of five crown jewel events for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 26-28, when the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., hosts King of America X powered by Summit.

And for the second year in a row, Mother Nature has forced the marriage of two great events into one colossal event with the postponement of this week’s B-Mod Battle of the Bullring to the same weekend at the end of March.

Modifieds will partake in two rounds of qualifying Thursday and another two on Friday to set the lineups for Saturday’s “alphabet soup” of main events. Each night will be highlighted by a 16-lap, $1,000-to-win feature. A top prize of $10,000 awaits the winner of Saturday’s finale which pays a minimum of $1,000 to each of the starters.

B-Mods will compete in a complete program of heat races and main events all three nights. Thursday’s winner will take home $2,000. The winner of Friday’s feature gets $3,000 and Saturday’s winner will pocket $4,000.

There will be an open practice on Wednesday, March 25, which may be the only time for hot laps during the event. The pits gate opens at 2 p.m. and practice is from 6-9 p.m. Pit passes are $20 for adults. Admission to the grandstands is free.

On Thursday and Friday, the pits open at 1 p.m. and grandstands open at 5 with racing getting underway at 7 p.m. All times are one hour earlier on Saturday.

Grandstand admission on Thursday and Friday is $20 for adults, $15 for juniors (12-16) and seniors (62+) with kids (6-11) just $5. On Saturday, adults get in for $25, juniors and seniors are $20 and kids are $10. Children ages 5 and under are free every day. Pit passes each night are $40.

MODIFIED PROCEDURES: Each driver will run four heat races from four different starting positions on Thursday and Friday. Starting positions and drivers will be mixed. Each heat race will feature 10 to 12 starters. Passing points will be combined for the best three of four heat races (fourth heat used as tiebreaker if needed) to determine Saturday’s race lineups. The top 12 are locked into the first six rows of Saturday’s “A” Main. The next 12 are locked into Saturday’s “B” Main and so forth. Full USMTS points will be awarded Saturday with 75 points awarded Thursday and Friday. USMTS rules apply.
