21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree set for Sept. 29-21
The 21st Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree will take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-21 at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn.
The truly super, undisputed heavyweight champion of dirt modified shows will feature the fire-breathing Modifieds in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey's Cup and the Arnold Motor Supply Iron Man Challenge featuring Out-Pace USRA B-Mods sharing the spotlight each night.
The high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located in the rolling hills of Southern Minnesota will be host to the world’s elite open-wheel Modified and B-Mod drivers and their machines for a little more than 100 hours as they battle for more than $150,000 in prize money.
At this year’s blockbuster event, race fans will witness a complete program all three nights with $5,000 going to the USMTS Modified winner on Thursday and Friday while Saturday’s winner will pocket $10,000. B-Mods will battle for $1,000, $1,200 and $1,500 to win, respectively, over the three nights.
The top 15 in heat race passing points are locked into “A” Main each night with the top 8 redrawing for the first eight starting positions. An additional 15 drivers will advance from the “B” Mains.
Thirty cars will start the main event each night in both classes. Saturday’s championship features will go three-wide for the green flag starts.
For the titans of the USMTS, Thursday’s Non-Qualifiers Race will award $700 to win and a minimum of $100 for each of the 24 starters. Saturday’s 30-car Non-Qualifiers Race will pay $2,000 to win and a minimum $250 to start.
New this year, Friday’s program will feature the first-ever “Stoen Speed Dash” for the USMTS Modifieds. The driver with the fastest one-lap time in each heat race gets the invite. The 8-lap sprint will pay $700 to win and $100 to start with a slew of valuable contingency awards and high-performance products being awarded too.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday are the final three points races in the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by Summit and will also award USMTS national points. Meanwhile, the B-Mods get Iron Man points as well as national points in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series all three nights.
