USMTS tackles two Sooner State ovals May 13-14
The ferocious outlaw-style open-wheel dirt modifieds of the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt prepare for a double dip in the Sooner State this weekend.
It starts with a trek to the Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla., for the $7,000-to-win 6th Annual Fallen Hero 50 presented by RacinDirt this Friday, May 13, followed by the 8th Annual Drive4JRT.com Juggernaut on Saturday, May 14, at the Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, Okla., with $10,000 up for grabs to the winner there.
While this is the first time the series invades Cody Brewer’s popular bullring, USRA Modifieds have competed on several occasions here. Tyle Wolff won at Red Dirt Raceway in the 2020 “Cowboy Proof 100” and Joe Duvall did the same last season during a contest with the USRA American Racer Modified Series presented by Day Motor sports.
Joining the Summit USMTS Modifieds will be Sport Mods/B-Mods, Factory Stocks and Non-Wing Micros
Races begin at 7:30. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. with grandstands and tailgate parking open at 6. The reserved "Tailgate Section" spot is good for one vehicle with a limit of eight people per vehicle. Camping is also available.
Tickets may be purchased here prior to 12 noon on Thursday but will be available on race day at the ticket window.
On Saturday, it will be the ninth visit to the Tri-State Speedway since Eddie Martin won the inaugural event on June 9, 2009.
Since then, four-time USMTS National Champion Jason Hughes has won a series-best three features while Zack VanderBeek, Hunter Marriott, Rodney Sanders and Dereck Ramirez each have one.
Ramirez is the most recent winner of the Drive4JRT.com Juggernaut and defending Summit USMTS National Champion. A record prize of $100,000 awaits this year’s titlist.
Along with the Summit USMTS Modifieds, the racing card will see USRA B-Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks each racing for $1,000 to win and Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points.
The pits open at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5:30, hot laps and qualifying begin at 7:30 with racing slated to get underway at 8.
These will be the eighth and ninth races on the 2022 schedule with 14 events on the slate between now and June 18.
