Early entry deadline looms for 2nd Annual USRA National Championships

usra-national-championships-logo-2015KANSAS CITY, Kan.-The 2nd Annual USRA National Championships takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15-17, at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

Now in its eleventh season of sanctioning weekly dirt track racing at dirt tracks across America, the United States Racing Association’s super-event in the center of America’s heartland will feature all four of the organization’s sanctioned divisions: USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods and USRA Hobby Stocks.

Competitors at the USRA National Championships will take part in heat races and main events each night. USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods will compete all three nights while USRA Hobby Stocks are on the card for Friday and Saturday.

Drivers will duke it out on Thursday and Friday, with the combined points earned for both nights (Friday only for USRA Hobby Stocks) setting the line-ups for Saturday.

Each night will be a complete show of heat races and main events, with USRA national points awarded each night. No USRA track points are awarded at any track during the three-day event, and national points are awarded at this event only.

Sweetening the pot for competitors at the USRA National Championships is the “True Car Count Bonus” awarded to driver in each class all three nights. Whereas a driver is awarded bonus points equal to the car count on any given night at USRA-sanctioned races, the maximum is set at 24 points for car counts of 24 or more.

However, at this year’s USRA National Championships each driver will earn a car count bonus equal to the actual car count with no ceiling. Therefore, if 60 USRA Stock Cars are racing one night then each driver in that class will get 60 bonus points toward their nightly total. This could have a huge impact on USRA national points in all four divisions.

Entry fees are $100 for USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods; $50 for USRA Hobby Stocks. Entry fee and completed entry form must be received or postmarked by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on Monday, Oct. 5. Late or at-the-track entry fees are double.

On Saturday, USRA Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods will each be racing for $4,000 to win. USRA Hobby Stocks will race for $1,000 to win Saturday. Saturday’s championship features will start three-wide in all four divisions.
