USMTS Gears Up For Mississippi Tripleheader

The United States Modified Touring Series will invade three Mississippi ovals this weekend.

JACKSON, Miss. – The United States Modified Touring Series is returning to Mississippi this weekend for three events at three dirt tracks.

The dirt-slinging demons of the Summit USMTS Southern Series powered by MSD light the fuse on Friday with a battle at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. Then on Saturday the tireless touring titans visit Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Miss. The final event of the weekend takes place Sunday in Columbus, Miss., at Magnolia Motor Speedway. It’ll be the first visit for USMTS to Magnolia Motor Speedway.

The titanic tripleheader gets started Friday at the historic Jackson Motor Speedway where Zack VanderBeek of New Sharon, Iowa, inherited the win in last year’s exciting tilt.


Support classes will include Durrence Layne Crate Late Models, 602 Sportsmans and Street Stocks plus Factory Stocks and Hot Shots.

Cade Dillard of Robeline, La., notched the victory in 2017 during the series debut at the Jackson Motor Speedway as well as the following night at the Whynot Motorsports Park where the series returns on Saturday.

Stormy Scott held off Dillard last year as the USMTS brings the boom for a third straight year in 2019 and will be celebrating with a three-wide start for Saturday night’s main event.

The action reaches a boiling point on Sunday as the meanest machines in America make their maiden voyage to the legendary Magnolia Motor Speedway for a wheel-to-wheel showdown with 604 Crate Late Models, 602 Crate Late Models and Factory Stocks also in action.
