USRA National Championships kick off Wednesday

usra-national-championships-logo-2015KANSAS CITY, Kan.-The 2nd Annual USRA National Championships takes place this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15-17, at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., with a Wednesday night practice session to get things started.

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.

Combined points earned for both Thursday and Friday nights (Friday only for USRA Hobby Stocks) will set 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.

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.

The defending winners are Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas (USRA Modifieds), Dillon Anderson of Decorah, Iowa (USRA Stock Cars), Mike Higley of Kansas City, Mo. (USRA B-Mods) and Eric Stanton of Hartford, Iowa (USRA Hobby Stocks).
