‘The Big O' has hosted 21 nights of USMTS racing since the inaugural event won by Jason Hughes on August 17, 2011—his first of three triumphs here—but it's been nearly eight seasons since his last one.

Only two other drivers have multiple wins at the state-of-the-art venue located an hour north of the Twin Cities. One of them is Jake Timm who is the current points leader in the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt, and sits second behind Jim Chisholm in the Collins Brothers Towing USMTS North Region presented by Featherlite points.

A two-time defending champion of Mod Wars and four-time winner here, Timm will likely be tough to tame as the 27-year-old from Winona, Minnesota, has claimed three of the last four checkered flags in Ogilvie.

With three career wins, Stormy Scott is the only other winner of multiple USMTS main event victories in Ogilvie.

Other USMTS winners at Ogilvie include Jeremy Payne, Jason Krohn, Zack VanderBeek, Shane Sabraski, Johnny Scott, Dan Ebert, Jake O'Neil, Alex Williamson, Dave Cain, Dustin Sorensen and Jim Chisholm.

Four other race nights have been rained out, postponed or canceled due to the pandemic, as was the case in 2020.

Notable names searching for their first USMS win at Ogilvie Raceway include four-time USMTS national champion Rodney Sanders, Terry Phillips, Tanner Mullens, Tyler Davis, Lucas Schott and Lance Mari.

Other local and regional racers expected are current track points leader Jody Bellefeuille, J.T. Johnson, Eric Lamm, Zach Benson, Karl Leavenworth, Clayton Wagamon, Kyle Kirberger, Travis Schulte, Devin Fouquette, Ryan Gierke, Shane Sabraski, Landon Atkinson, Dave Cain, Brennan Gave, Jeremy Nelson, Tyler Kaeter, Jason Gross, Tony Schill, Jake Smith, Adam Bohlman, Brandon Dolman and more.

About Ogilvie Raceway: The Ogilvie Raceway is a high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located less than one hour north of the twin cities on Hwy. 23, or 5 miles west of Hwy. 65, or 11 miles east from Hwy.169 in Milaca, or 1 mile east of Hwy. 47 to 1539 MN-23, Ogilvie, MN 56358.

Construction on Ogilvie Raceway began in 2008. The 40 acre complex includes over 12,000 square feet of climate-controlled spaces, featuring a full kitchen, bar and restaurant area, hospitality kiosks and display areas, modern restrooms and VIP suites. The meticulously maintained grounds also include south facing grandstands, high quality lighting, a state-of-the-art public address system and a trackside tailgating section along the turns where fans can watch the action from the comfort of their car, the back of their pickup truck or in their RV

In 2015, the Wagamon Family purchased Ogilvie Raceway and are actively involved in the day-to-day operations at the track. With nearly 60 years as business owners in the automotive industry, they bring a passion for racing, family values and excitement to an already great racetrack. During their first season they added a large upper level party room and bar called the Champions Club, and in 2016 an oversized deck was added to allow fans even more viewing and entertainment options.
