There is no other Modified deal that I'm aware of that pays you $5000 to win in points for a season that boils down to a ***combined 3-4 weeks total.*** Four weekends used.

Thanks to weather, the first weekend of this is being rescheduled, but...

This points "season" ends on June 27th in Lawton, Oklahoma. Now that's a short season in itself but it's really only about 21 days or so of time away from home and that's with adding a day of travel before and after the THREE road trips you have to make. That's right... JUST THREE ROAD TRIPS! A working man would need 4 weeks vacation maybe ... instead of 3 if he has a hard boss....

If all 13 races which pay $3000-to-win along with great paydowns in each one -- ALL ONE-night shows too -- get in.... the points pay $5000 to win and it'll pay down 15 spots too. Less than that may get prorated but USMTS has been more than fair on that whenever it happens IMO. At least that don't have you hold up a sign saying an amount and then pay you only half of it. That's what I mean by 'more than fair...'

Now if you are a day's drive away from Dallas and leave home a day before a race at say, Superbowl Speedway then race RPM Speedway and Lonestar Speedway and drive home the day after that, you will have been gone 5 days and raced for a combined $9000 to win/$900 to start!

On April 22nd you travel to south central Oklahoma for a Thursday night, April 23rd race at Southern Oklahoma Speedway. Again, you travel back eastward ... this time to Ark-La-Tex Speedway and Boothill Speedway and end up in Shreveport, Louisiana before heading home on the 26th. 5 more days. $9000/$900 more!

Almost a 2 month break follows before the coup-de-gras...
***Southern Region SPEEDWEEK!***

Speedweek condenses the final 7 races of the region into a 9-day stretch. Start out leaving home on Thursday June 18th...

.... OR ....

If you have a two week vacation and just want to race a couple more... leave home on Tuesday June 16th and race at Valley Speedway near Kansas City on Wednesday the 17th and then 81 Speedway near Wichita, Kansas on the 18th. They are Central Region races and have nothing to do with Southern Region points but they pay $3000 to win in each as well and if you possess the USMTS Southern Region license (cost is $150 and necessary to run for the $5000 championship) you can race for the higher purse amounts that licensed drivers get in those 2 Central races too. That means they will both be $300 to start for you as well just no Central Region points without a Central license is all. Each race by the way, has a $100 early entry fee for licensed drivers including these two. When finished in Wichita, you'll cross Oklahoma from north to south next...

Either way... you'll want to be in Wichita Falls, Texas for Southern Region Speedweek kick-off on Friday the 19th at Red River Speedway. From there, it's out west to Amarillo, Texas for Saturday night's show and then you'll have Sunday & Monday off. You'll need some of that time to drive to Waco, Texas for Tuesday night's race on the 23rd. Then Wednesday at the legendary Devil's Bowl Speedway and Thursday for the last race in Texas which will be in the heart of the DFW Metroplex in Grand Prairie at a track called Mountain Creek Speedway. No mountain, no creek but there is a dirt track there! Then another stop at Southern Oklahoma Speedway for Friday night's show before heading to Lawton Speedway for championship night on Saturday the 27th. That's a combined $21,000 to win barring rainouts and a minimum of $2100 if you can make all 7 A-mains!

With a travel day on Sunday the 28th, you would have been gone 11-13 days depending on which option you chose starting out. Like I said earlier, the whole Southern Region(only) maximum time from home with travel days included is 21 days/ 3 weeks! If your adding with me, that's a total of $44,000 to win ($39,000 for race wins and $5000 for points) without rainouts messing it up.

If you got better... somebody let me know where!

Longdale Speedway replaced Lonestar Speedway for race #3 on the schedule so Oklahoma now has an additional race! Smile
