USMTS launches richest season ever this weekend

USMTS launches richest season ever this weekend

The Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt opens the 2024 campaign this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 23-24, with the 9th Annual Summit USMTS Texas Winter Nationals at the Hunt County Raceway in Greenville, Texas.

The 2023 season was the most competitive in USMTS history with 18 different winners wheeling 17 different chassis brands into Victory Fuel Victory Lane. The reigning richest racing for dirt modifieds saw 17 racers attend every event.

Hunt County Raceway will host an open practice on Thursday from 6-9 p.m. before a pair of $5,000-to-win features on Friday and Saturday.

How important is the first event? This year’s Summit USMTS National Champion could pocket more than $180,000 in post-season earnings at the end of the year.

The series champion will earn $50,000 and each of the three regions pay $10,000 to win the points. If a driver can win all three regions and the national points, a whopping $100,000 bonus awaits.

This will be the first race in the ARMI Contracting USMTS Southern Region presented by Gene Nicholas, LLC.

And don't forget, the RacinDirt TV Challenge is $30,000 which will be split evenly between all drivers with perfect attendance in 2024.

Summit USMTS superstars expected include five-time and defending USMTS titlist Rodney Sanders, four-time national champ Jason Hughes, Jim Chisholm, Dereck Ramirez, Tanner Mullens, Jake O'Neil, Dan Ebert, Tyler Wolff, Zack VanderBeek, Cayden Carter, Will Krup, Darron Fuqua, Carlos Ahumada Jr., Jeremy Nelson, Gary Christian and many more.

USRA Stock Cars, USRA Limited Mods and Sunoco USRA Factory Stocks battle both nights with Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points up for grabs. Eco-Mods will also be racing both nights.

The USMTS debuted here in 2014 with Johnny Scott taking the win and his twin brother, Stormy Scott, grabbing the next one three months later. Cade Dillard won the 2016 event and Ryan Gustin captured the last one here on June 4, 2019.

The Hunt County Raceway is a 1/4-mile semi-banked dirt oval located 5.0 miles south of Greenville on SR 34, then west on FM 1903 to 437 FM-1903, Greenville, TX, 75402. For more information, follow Hunt County Raceway on Facebook, call (469) 964-2224 or email.

On the heels of a record-breaking year and the richest season in the first 25 years of the series, officials from the United States Modified Touring Series have announced another bold and lucrative schedule for 2024.
