Weather Stops USMTS Opener Again


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – As if 80 days weren’t enough torture, USMTS drivers and fans will have to wait another 24 hours for the first green flag of 2014 racing season.

The last checkered flag waved on Nov. 16 last year in Baytown, Texas, but Mother Nature has been stubborn this week in Corpus Christi, Texas, and has forced officials to cancel Friday night’s event.

The second annual Sparkling City Nationals at the South Texas Speedway will now be a two-day show on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8-9, paying $3,000 to win Saturday and $4,000 to win Sunday. Gates open at 3 p.m. both days with hot laps at 5 p.m.

Limited Modifieds will also be on the racing card with a $1,000 top prize at stake Saturday and $1,500 to the winner on Sunday night.
