The 4th Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Red Tail Tackle will be held Thursday-Saturday, July 24-26, at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., with a whopping $15,000 going to the winner and each of the 26 main event starters pocketing a minimum $1,500.

Past WMDTC winners include Brad Waits (2011), Ryan Gustin (2012) and Jason Hughes (2013).

On Thursday and Friday, drivers will qualify through time trials in groups of five cars with a green-white-checkered format. The top 6 qualifiers from each group will be inverted for that heat race. Heat races will take the top 12 in passing points to the “A” Main with the remainder going to one of the “B” Mains.

Points will be awarded for time trials, heat races, “B” Mains and the “A” Main each night with the top 6 in points being locked into Saturday's “A” Main. The highest overall points earner during the first two days will earn the pole for Saturday's “A” Main, second most points in the middle of the front row, third most points on the outside of the front row and so on for the 18 qualified drivers.

Saturday will feature an “alphabet soup” of main events with the 19th-highest points earner on the pole of the “B” Main and the lowest points earner starting last in the first “last chance” event.

An open practice will be held on Wednesday, July 23, from 6-9 p.m. This will be the only night for hot laps.

Drivers may enter by mailing in the completed entry form, faxing it to 515-832-7958 or by calling the USMTS office at 515-832-7944 during normal business hours.
