So here's your opportunity to get involved - via the official MTS FaceBook account: "April 24th (July 17th) is shaping up to be a special night and if you would like to donate to the B-Mod payout please call 507-474-2750, message the MTS FaceBook page or message Tyrone Lingenfelter to find out how you can make that happen!"

We also have some announcements regarding the three support classes running April 24th July 17th: On our tiered payout that can be found on the MTS website we are going to be guaranteeing the MAX payout for USRA Hobby Stocks, USRA Late Models and USRA Modifieds!

Fountain City, WI - For a third straight year, a national champion will be crowned in the USRA Late Model division, and for the first time the honor goes to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY regular Lucas Peterson of Grand Meadow, Minn., whose 24 starts were five more than his nearest finisher.
