USMTS unleashes 2024 schedule

USMTS unleashes 2024 schedule



On the heels of a record-breaking year and the richest season in the first 25 years of the series, officials from the United States Modified Touring Series have announced another bold and lucrative schedule for 2024 featuring the nation's premier dirt modified outlaws.

Forty-eight nights of racing are on the calendar, and for a third straight year the Summit USMTS National champion will earn a $100,000 paycheck and the Leon Ramirez Memorial Trophy.

More than $250,000 is committed to points fund earners on the final 2024 points standings of the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.

In 2023—the most competitive season in USMTS history—18 different winners claimed victory utilizing 17 different chassis manufacturers in the 34 races that were held. What's more, there were 17 competitors who attended every event.

Rodney Sanders claimed his fifth USMTS title in 2023 to earn $100,000 and “The Leon” trophy, which he will receive at the USMTS/USRA awards banquet on Saturday, Jan. 27, at Harrah's Kansas City Hotel & Casino.

At the conclusion of next season, RacinDirt will award $30,000 to eligible drivers with perfect attendance at USMTS events—this is in addition to the massive points fund already in place from the USMTS and their marketing partners.

Action wraps up the final weekend in October with back-to-back shows  at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., and 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan., where the 2024 USMTS National Champion will be crowned.
