Two critical battles are still on tap in the Major League Bowhunter Central Region presented by Day Motor Sports. USMTS’ touring driers return to the Mountain Dew Bloomfield (Iowa) Speedway on April 25 before wrapping up the weekend on April 26 at the I-35 (Mo.) Speedway.

Each event will pay at least $2,000 to win and a minimum of $250 to take the green flag in the main event.

Defending USMTS National Champion Rodney Sanders leads the regional points standings, but eight points behind is Zack VanderBeek – who is primed to make his 600th career USMTS start.

Stormy Scott, who is the only driver still eligible for a $100,000 payoff at season’s end, is just five points behind VanderBeek. If Scott can win all four regional titles and conquer the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup, he’ll take home a record $100,000.

Dereck Ramirez sits fourth in the standings while USMTS Rookie of the Year points leader Jake Gallardo is fifth. Johnny Scott is sixth, seventh is Austin Siebert, Dylan Smith holds the eighth spot, Hunter Rasdon ranks ninth and tenth is a tie between Kelly Shryock and Darron Fuqua.
