Two dates added to 2016 USMTS slate

usmts_logoWEBSTER CITY, Iowa-Two more shows are on the 2016 calendar for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.

Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series announced Monday that a stop at the Frontier Sports Park in Fort Dodge, Iowa, is penciled-in for Wednesday, July 20, with a trip to the Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa, set for Thursday, Aug. 18.

The series last visited the Frontier Sports Park in 2012 when it was known as Mineral City Speedway. Ryan Gustin won that event en route to his second consecutive USMTS national championship, and leads all drivers with three career wins at the half-mile oval.

Nine-time USMTS national champ Kelly Shryock has two wins while Zack VanderBeek and Tommy Myer also have wins here.

It’s been even longer since race fans at the Adams County Speedway have seen the Best of the Best in dirt modified racing grace the historic half-mile black clay in the Southwest corner of the Hawkeye State.

Jason Krohn won the most recent event in 2010 while Jon Tesch captured the first-ever show at ACS in 2004. In between, wins have also gone to Shryock, VanderBeek, Ryan Ruter, Al Hejna, Tony Fraise and Jason Hughes.

Shryock is the only repeat winner with three checkers to his credit.

The race will take place during the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental.

Both tracks have seen changes in ownership and/or management in the past couple of seasons. Most recently, former NASCAR Busch All-Star Series and World Dirt Racing League director Jim Wilson has been hired as the Chief Race Steward at the Adams County Speedway for 2016.
