Deer Creek Speedway hosts 118th USMTS race May 28

The Best of the Best in dirt modified racing are headed north for another historic 100 hours of racing over Memorial Day Weekend featuring the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.

Four straight nights of unreal racing kicks off Thursday, May 26, with the 8th Annual USMTS Double Down Showdown at the Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa, and then the series makes a long-awaited return to the Chateau Speedway in Lansing, Minn., on Friday, May 27.

The Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., hosts the 19th Annual USMTS Southern MN Spring Challenge on Saturday, May 28, before travelling to the reanimated Winneshiek Raceway in Decorah, Iowa, on Sunday, May 29, for the 14th Annual USMTS Nordic Nationals.


More than any other racetrack, the high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located in the rolling hills of Southern Minnesota will be hosting Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt for the 118th time this Memorial Day Weekend.

The list of former USMTS winners at ‘The Creek’ could serve as dirt modified racing’s half of fame class. Nine-time USMTS national champ Kelly Shryock won the first-ever contest here in 2002—his first of 10 victories here. Rodney Sanders has garnered 11 checkered flags here but both take a back seat to Jason Hughes who has a series-best 14 victories here.
