WICHITA FALLS, Texas – Following Wednesday’s cancellation at the 82 Speedway, officials at Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas, have been forced to pull the plug on Thursday night’s Summit USMTS Southern Series show.
“This is our third attempt at hosting a Usmts event this year, and we are very disappointed that the weather keeps throwing a monkey wrench into what we know would be a great event for our fans,” said track owner/promoter Shannon Kelton. “We hope that the series can find a wedge in the schedule to plug us in. 82 Speedway has been in the same boat with us, so maybe both tracks can pair up with a doubleheader down the road.”
On Friday, the USMTS invades the West Texas Raceway in Lubbock, Texas. Presented by Wrisco, this will be the fifth visit to the facility.
Jason Hughes won in 2010 when it was called Lubbock speedway and again in 2017 after it became known as West Texas Raceway. Rodney Sanders won here in 2016 and Lucas Schott was last year’s winner.
USRA Modifieds, USRA Limited Mods, USRA Stock Cars and WTR Street Stocks will also be racing. The pit gate opens at 4 p.m., grandstands open at 5:30 p.m., hot laps begin at 7:30 p.m. and racing gets underway at 8 p.m.
