USMTS fires up 2024 with four nights in North Texas

USMTS fires up 2024 with four nights in North Texas



The 26th season featuring America’s premier powerhouse of dirt modified racing kicks off the 2024 campaign with a huge doubleheader weekend in the Lone Star State for the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.

Fire lights the fuse on Friday and Saturday, February 23-24, with the 9th Annual Summit USMTS Texas Winter Nationals at the Hunt County Raceway in Greenville, Texas, and then blasts off the next weekend at the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, March 1-2.

Both North Texas venues will host an open practice on Thursday night from 6-9 p.m. before the two doubleheaders. All four shows will pay $5,000 to win for the Summit USMTS Modifieds—a possible $20,000 to sweep the first four features of 2024.

Returning to the former Superbowl Speedway for the first time since 2019, the Hunt County Raceway is a 1/4-mile semi-banked dirt oval located 5.0 miles south of Greenville on SR 34, then west on FM 1903 to 437 FM-1903, Greenville, TX, 75402.

The USMTS debuted here in 2014 with Johnny Scott taking the win and his twin brother, Stormy Scott, grabbing the next one three months later. Cade Dillard won the 2016 event and Ryan Gustin captured the last event here on June 4, 2019.

After a thriller to open the 25th Anniversary season last year, fans can expect more of the same when the USMTS returns to Kevin Sustaire’s Rocket Raceway Park.

Eventual Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year Tom Berry Jr. bested veteran Terry Phillips and a record 85 entries on the first night while Jake Timm topped the rain-delayed Sunday show.

Meanwhile, eventual USMTS national champ Dustin Sorensen topped the opening night in 2022 with the finale of the 12th Annual Texas Spring Nationals going to Tyler Davis—the eventual Summit USRA Modified National Champion.

Prior to that, the series was rained out in 2019 when the track was called 82 Speedway. Before that, it was known as East Texas Speedway and Philip Houston won the first USMTS contest here on June 25, 2015.

Summit USMTS superstars expected for the two opening weekends include five-time USMTS titlist Rodney Sanders, four-time champ Jason Hughes, Jim Chisholm, Dereck Ramirez, Tanner Mullens, Jake O'Neil, Dan Ebert, Tyler Wolff, Zack VanderBeek, Cayden Carter, Will Krup, Darron Fuqua, Carlos Ahumada Jr., Jeremy Nelson, Gary Christian and many more.

USRA Stock Cars, USRA Limited Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks will also be racing all four nights with Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points up for grabs. Eco-Mods join the action in Greenville.
