USMTS blasts off at Rocket Raceway Park March 4-5

The mud-slinging Modifieds of the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt invade the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, March 4-5, for the 12th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals.

An open practice for racers in all divisions is slated for Thursday, March 3.

The track opened in 2015 and hosted the USMTS on June 25 for the first and only visit here by the series. Philip Houston was the winner that night.

The fast and wide high-banked quarter-mile dirt oval will also welcome Medieval USRA Stock Cars for the first time ever, along with USRA Limited Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks both nights.

Located about 15 minutes west of Paris and 25 minutes east of Bonham in Lamar County, the Rocket Raceway Park (formerly known as 82 Speedway) holds 3,400 spectators and its elevated grandstands offer superb viewing from any seat.

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