25th Annual Masters on tap at Cedar Lake Speedway

25th Annual Masters on tap at Cedar Lake Speedway


The 25th Annual Masters takes place this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 13-15, at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis.—a crown jewel battle in the Collins Brothers Towing USMTS North Region presented by Featherlite for the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.

The legendary event features both USMTS Modifieds and Super Late Models racing for the same money each night. USRA Late Models are also on the card all three days.

The show kicks off Thursday $3,000-to--win main event for the USMTS Modifieds and Super Late Models, followed by $5,000-to-win contests on Friday. The finales on Saturday pays a whopping top prize of $12,000 to the triumphant driver in each class.

USRA Late Models will also run a complete program each night with $600 to win Thursday and Friday before climbing to a $1,000 top prize on Saturday, and all three nights will award Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points.

The USMTS Modifieds made their debut at the Cedar Lake Speedway in 2001 with Tim Donlinger winning the Badger State Championship. Trent Follmer garnered his first and only USMTS victory in the 2002 edition of the event, and the series has held 34 additional feature races since then.

The USMTS became part of the Masters tradition in 2011 with Ryan Gustin winning both ends of a rain-delayed program. He returned in 2012 to top opening night at the Masters but it was Rodney Sanders capturing the finale.

Sanders matched that by winning the opener in 2013 before the finale was pushed back two months by inclement weather with Johnny Scott winning on Aug. 14.

No driver has had more success inside the golden guardrails of the Cedar Lake Speedway than Sanders, registering seven of his 114 career triumphs here. Gustin's not far behind in either category with five of his 103 wins happening at CLS.

In 2002, eventual Summit USMTS national champ Dustin Sorensen won on opening night—his second career win at Cedar Lake—with Jake O'Neil getting his second win here the following night. Taking home the big check on Saturday was 2021 USMTS national champion Dereck Ramirez.

Carlos Ahumada Jr. kicked off last year's Masters tripleheader with a win while Cayden Carter triumphed on day two. On Saturday, Sorensen finally snagged hi Masters crown.

In addition to Donlinger, Follmer and Johnny Scott, everybody else has just one career USMTS win here including Brad Dierks, Jason Hughes, Austin Arneson, Zack VanderBeek, Stormy Scott, Terry Phillips, A.J. Diemel, Ramirez, Ahumada and Carter.

Camping for the weekend is just $50 for all days and is available at the racetrack starting Thursday morning. Fans can purchase tickets in advance and/or reserve camping spots at ticketpeak.co/cedarlake/subscriptions_and_flex_passes.
