Earlier this year, the USMTS signed a deal with MAVTV to televise five events that will be tape-delayed broadcast on the growing cable network. The line-up will begin with the King of America V. The next event that will be televised will be the World Modified Dirt Track Championships at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., which will take place July 24-26. The final three shows will be taped throughout The Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup for one show and the final two shows will highlight the 17th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree that will take place the last weekend of September at Deer Creek.
Each show will be one hour in length with coverage and highlights of qualifying events and the main event broadcast in its entirety. The Hunt recap will be the third show and will feature a bunch of select races that were held during The Hunt, leading up to the finale that will be held at the Featherlite Fall Jamboree.
Please support the following businesses for supporting this big idea: American Racer, Casey’s General Stores, Chix Gear Racewear, COMP Cams, Day Motor Sports, Double H Bands, Duvall Electric, Global GPS Solutions, La Quinta Inns & Suites, Mesilla Valley Transportation, MSD, RacinDirt.com, Ramirez Motorsports, S&S Fishing & Rental, Saye Plumbing Contractors and U Motors.
Special thanks to Chad Koel and his staff at Koel Communications for an excellent production. Don’t forget, this month’s World Modified Dirt Track Championship will also be filmed for broadcast this fall, and then a three-episode series covering The Hunt and the Featherlite Fall Jamboree follows that.
