LONGDALE, Okla.-The Longdale Speedway in Longdale, Okla., will host the United States Modified Touring Series this Friday and Saturday, April 10-11, for a dazzling doubleheader to kick off the Double H Bands Southern Region presented by Day Motor Sports.
With the early-season weather woes continuing in North Texas, USMTS officials announced today that the event slated for this Thursday, April 9, at the Superbowl Speedway in Greenville, Texas, has been postponed while the RPM Speedway in Crandall, Texas, will move their date from this Friday to Thursday, April 23.
Originally slated for a one-day show this Saturday, Longdale Speedway promoter Jessie Hoskins will open up the doors to his one-year-old, high-speed, high-banked half-mile clay oval for a two-day show this Friday and Saturday to fill the void.
The fire-breathing, mud-slinging open-wheel dirt modifieds of the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental will be in action for a pair of back-to-back $3,000-to-win clashes at Longdale, which boasts 22-degree straight-aways and 26 degrees of banking in the turns.
Stormy Scott christened the new joint with his 24th career USMTS victory over a 42-car field on May 16, 2014.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. on Friday. Times are one hour earlier for Saturday.
