OSKALOOSA, Iowa – Just when it looked like the record-breaking rainfall was in the rear-view mirror, Mother Nature sprang up to dump on the drivers, teams and fans once again.
Precipitation at Southern Iowa Speedway forced the cancellation of Wednesday’s 12th annual USMTS Summer Classic presented by Keyser Manufacturing, leaving just 28 nights of racing on the schedule for the Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship.
The series moves on to the ninth annual Imperial Tile Silver Dollar Nationals presented by Swift Springs, July 19-20 at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb.
For the first time in event history, the USMTS will stage a two-part feature race on Friday paying $1,000 to win each 15-lap segment.
Saturday’s finale pays $8,000 to the winner and at least $500 to every main event starter.
