Summit Racing Equipment renews commitment to racers, remains title sponsor of USMTS


Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series and Summit Racing Equipment announced this week that they have inked a new multi-year exclusive partnership to support the racers who compete in the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.

As part of their commitment to USMTS competitors, Summit Racing Equipment will be the Official High Performance Source of the USMTS as well as the title sponsor of the USMTS.

For the fifth straight season, Summit will also be the presenting sponsor of the annual King of America crown jewel event. In 2022, the race is scheduled for Thursday-Saturday, March 24-26, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan.

“After meeting with Todd (Staley) and his family and staff a few years ago, we knew the USMTS was going to be a great avenue for us to show our support for the racer,” said Jim Greenleaf, Summit Racing Equipment’s Motorsports and Events Manager. “That is really what we're in this business for is supporting the racers.

“We're happy to do a new multi-year agreement with the USMTS and USRA to continue our support for the racers that support the series and the sanctioning body.”

“Due in large part to Summit’s partnership with the USMTS, we will be offering unmatched event purses again this season and the 2022 USMTS national champ will pocket a record-tying $70,000 for a second straight season,” said USMTS President Todd Staley. “There couldn’t be a better partner for our drivers to have in their corner.”

In addition to making a significant contribution to points funds for USMTS competitors, Summit Racing Equipment will also dole out thousands of dollars in gift cards and product certificates to competitors during the course of the season as well as at season’s end.

2022 season blasts off March 4-5: The Summit USMTS Modifieds will invade the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, March 4-5, for the 12th Annual Texas Spring Nationals.

The fast and wide high-banked quarter-mile dirt oval, formerly known as 82 Speedway and East Texas Speedway, opened in 2015 and hosted the USMTS for the first and only time on June 25. Philip Houston was the winner that night.

The Texas Spring Nationals will also welcome USRA Stock Cars for the first time ever, along with USRA Limited Mods and USRA Factory Stocks both nights. An open practice for all divisions is slated for Thursday night, March 3.

The Rocket Raceway Park holds 3,400 spectators and its elevated grandstands offer superb viewing from any seat. The venue can be found in Lamar County—about 15 minutes west of Paris and 25 minutes east of Bonham.

The track’s physical location is 16369 US Hwy 82, Petty, TX 75470. Learn more at RocketRacewayPark.com or follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
