On Tuesday, Aug. 3, the USMTS Casey’s General Stores National Tour kicks off the annual Kossuth County Fair with a return to the Algona Raceway in Algona, Iowa, for the first time since Johnny Bone Jr. won a thriller there on Aug. 5, 2004.
The Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa, will welcome back the USMTS dirt merchants on Wednesday, Aug. 4, for the final event in the Farm Boy BBQ Sauce Central States Region presented by Arnold Motor Supply.
The Jackson Speedway in Jackson, Minn., is back on the calendar after a four-year absence. The USMTS Modifieds will take to the half-mile oval on Thursday, Aug. 5, for a Yeager Machine Upper Midwest Region points race.
