USMTS Gets Rained Out For Third Straight Night


JEFFERSON, S.D. – The third night of a three-race swing for the USMTS ended with a third straight rain-out Sunday when officials at Park Jefferson Speedway were forced to pull the plug on the Cookies BBQ Summer Shootout.

Rained out Friday at the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa, and again Saturday at the Nobles County Speedway in Worthington, Minn., the series struck out for the weekend with Sunday’s dampened news.

The USMTS has staged just 18 nights of racing thus far in 2019 as the series heads into its annual summer vacation until action resumes in the third week of July.

In comparison, 30 shows were completed by this time last season, and in 2017 there were already 42 race nights in the books by June 18.

The good news is that there are still at least 29 nights remaining on the campaign for the 2019 Casey’s General Stores USMTS National Championship powered by Summit.

The next event is slated for Wednesday, July 17, when the series returns to the Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, Iowa, for the 12th Annual USMTS Summer Classic presented by Keyser Manufacturing.
