Valley Speedway kicks off 10 races in 12 days for USMTS

valleyGRAIN VALLEY, Mo.—The Best of the Best in open-wheel dirt modified racing will take on the Valley Speedway this Wednesday, June 18, to kick off a whirlwind finish to the month of June that will see United States Modified Touring Series drivers tackling 10 different racetracks in 12 days.

Wednesday’s $2,000-to-win USMTS Modified event at Dennis Shrout’s high-excitement bullring will also feature the bad-fastest USRA B-Mods in America’s heartland battling for a $600 top prize in the Iron Man Challenge.

Spectator gates open at 6 p.m., hot laps start at 6:30 and racing action will begin at 7.

Race fans can pick up discount coupons good for $2 off adult admission at Casey’s General Stores locations in Blue Springs, Grain Valley and Oak Grove while supplies last. To find the location nearest you, check out www.caseys.com online.

Officials remind drivers that mufflers (not just turn-downs) are required at the Valley Speedway, so arrive prepared. Get the proper and quality equipment at www.daymotorsports.com.
