WEBSTER CITY, Iowa – The United States Modified Touring Series schedule is set, with 53 dates at 30 tracks making up the 22nd season for the touring dirt modified division.

With a new season on the horizon and new decade underway, it’s only fitting that the 2020 campaign blasts off at a new venue when the series invades I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, on Feb. 28, as part of a six-race run in nine days in the Lone Star State.

Located just a few minutes south of San Antonio, the USMTS touring titans will roll two more hours south after the checkered flag waves as they return to the South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi on Feb. 29, before wrapping up the year’s first tripleheader on March 1 at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, located just east of Austin.

From there, fans and racers trek north to the Dallas-Fort Worth region to the Big O Speedway in Ennis, Texas, for a three-day stop paying $2,000, $3,000 and $4,000 to win, respectively, on March 5-7.

This will be the first-ever visit by the USMTS to the former 85 Speedway as the Big O Speedway becomes the new home of the Texas Spring Nationals, which was held for the first time in 2007 at Houston Raceway Park (later renamed Royal Purple Raceway).

The Casey’s General Stores USMTS national championship continues March 26-28, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., for King of America X powered by Summit and the first of five crown jewels on the calendar.

The second crown jewel takes place June 11-13 at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wis., for the 21st annual Masters, followed by the 10th annual Silver Dollar Nationals at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., on July 24-25.

The fourth crown jewel happens Sept. 24-26, when the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., hosts the 22nd Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree, and then the 2020 Casey’s USMTS national champion will be crowned at the conclusion of the second annual Summit Southern Nationals, Nov. 5-7 at RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas.
