USMTS Nordic Nationals motors into Winneshiek Raceway May 29

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.


With a new name and a new attitude, the Winneshiek Raceway (formerly Upper Iowa Speedway) in Decorah, Iowa, hosts the 14th Annual USMTS Nordic Nationals on Sunday. Zack VanderBeek won his first USMTS main event in 2005 and has three wins here in total—the most of any USMTS driver.

This Sunday’s show will also pay $10,000 which makes it possible for one driver to wake up Monday with an extra $35,000 in his or her pocket if they can sweep the weekend.
