Come out to MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY any Friday night in August, relax a little, have some fun and enjoy the night 'on us'."

The #BlueFansMatter promotion invites any and all members of Law Enforcement to enjoy a night at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY compliments of the speedway.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY PREPARES FOR THE LARGEST MODIFIED EVENT IN THE COUNTRY IN 2016!

The DAHL CHEVROLET, BUICK, GMC 5TH ANNUAL MODIFIED NATIONALS


(click image to see full-sized version)

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is ready for "THE LARGEST MODIFIED EVENT IN THE COUNTRY" for 2016; and there is nothing that would make us happier than to see YOU strapped into your Modified as part of this HUGE EVENT!!

That's why we are excited to open registration for this event at 10 AM (CST) Monday, March 7th.

Below is a printable copy of the Official Registration Form for The DAHL CHEVROLET, BUICK, GMC 5TH ANNUAL MODIFIED NATIONALS. Here is how MTS will handle the registration process: At 10 AM (CST) Monday, the official registration window will open. Drivers who are ready to enter the event can call the official registration number (608-687-3282) to get their name on what is sure to a quickly-lengthening registration list. This list will be an "as the phone rings" order of drivers who are COMMITTING to ALL registration requirements. Each driver who places their name on this list will have 7 days to get the below registration form filled out and physically in the hands of MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY officials. This can be accomplished by either hand delivering the registration to MTS owner Bob Timm, or by mailing the entry to the address on the registration form. However, even if mailing the registration form, the 7 day window still remains firm!

And that's not all . . .

This event is LIMITED to 120 drivers in each division (Modifieds and B-Mods), and getting your name on this list as one of the first 120 entries is the only way to lock yourself into the program. Once the list grows to the 120 limit, all drivers after that point will be added (in order) to a waiting list. HOWEVER, it must be understood that once a driver gets their name onto the 120-driver entry list (whether by phone or actual receipt of the registration form) that will be considered an absolute commitment by the driver - meaning that no refunds will be allowed. The only way that a driver can be removed from the 120-driver advance registration list is if there are available drivers in the over-flow 'waiting list'. If, for some reason, a driver desires to be removed from the 120-driver advance registration list - and there are either no drivers, yet in the over-flow 'waiting list' OR the advance registration list has not yet reached the 120-driver limit - the only way that the driver will be allowed off the list is if they have a replacement driver ready to register.

The Official Registration Form is available below in two formats: a simple image OR a pdf file. Both versions are exactly the same, simply different digital formats. They will open in a new browser window and can be printed on your personal printer.
   
(click either image for a full-sized printable version)

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY officials are aware that there may be question regarding detailed rules specifics . . . the official rules package for this event are available via the link below (or HERE). A couple items worthy of noting are that provisions for Southern Sport Mods AND WISSOTA Midwest Modifieds WILL be made, so that drivers from those divisions will be just as competitive as others. Also a single driver can only compete in one division during this special event; NOT both (I.E., either Modifieds OR B-Mods . . . but, not both). To determine whether a driver is eligible to compete in the B-Mod division during this special event, we will be return to the driver qualifications similar to those laid out for the 2014 version of this event.
DRIVER QUALIFICATIONS:

Under no circumstances will any drivers be allowed to compete in both the A Mod and B Mod portion of the show! There will be no restrictions to drivers eligible to compete in the Modified portion of the show.

B Mod driver eligibility will be as follows: No drivers that have won a race in any of the following divisions in the last 5 years (Modified, Late Model, Sprint car) will be allowed to compete in the B Mod portion of the show. This does NOT include limited and crate Late Models. All other drivers eligible.
Rules for this amazing event are available HERE.

Payout for this event are available HERE.

Mailing address for the printed, and completed, registration form is:

Mississippi Thunder Speedway
1140 72nd Avenue,
Minnesota City, MN 55959


So, Drivers, Start your Engines!! NOW is your chance to cement your spot in "THE LARGEST MODIFIED EVENT IN THE COUNTRY" for 2016
