HUMBOLDT, Kan. – After a wild but successful season, the Humboldt Speedway is switching gears in preparation for 2021.
After returning to the family of USRA race tracks in 2020 with the sanctioning of Modifieds and B-Mods, the three-eighths-mile bullring will add USRA-sanctioned Stock Cars and Tuners next year.
Along with other tracks in the region, Humboldt Speedway will be utilizing one-year transition rules for the track’s current Street Stock division to fully rulebook-compliant USRA Stock Cars.
Those that adhere to the USRA Stock Car rules will be eligible and are encouraged to compete at tracks which utilize the transition rules. Stock Cars competing at Humboldt Speedway must be 100 percent USRA legal in 2022.
Humboldt Speedway will also sanction the USRA Tuner division next year. There will be minimal rules differences between the Tuners and Humboldt Speedway’s current front-wheel-drive sport compact division. However, drivers competing in the Tuner division will now reap all benefits that the USRA offers, including lucrative track and national points funds as well as contingency awards.
“A unified, competitive rules package like what the USRA Stock Car offers is something this region has needed for quite some time,” said Ryan Whitworth, co-owner of Humboldt Speedway. “With other tracks beginning to make the change, we at Humboldt Speedway wanted to be at the forefront of that movement. Likewise, now is the time to align ourselves with an established rulebook and support system by sanctioning the Tuners with USRA.”
