Whenerver the Centerville Welding & Repair USRA Late Models rolled out onto "The Big 1/3-Mile" fans and competitors alike focused on one car, one driver . . . with the expectation, almost certanty, that this car/driver would more than likely end up in Victory Lane. Lance Hofer . . . the dominator of the Late Model class; UNBEATEN since the later portion of the 2017 season! Until, that is, week #2 of 2019.

Shaun Mann - "The Man" who finally dominated the dominator . . .

"We believe with this payout MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has the highest Modified purse in our region," commented new Speedway Promoter Tyrone Lingenfelter, by way of a social media post on MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY's FaceBook page, "The Modified class has been a longtime fan favorite and .... we are hoping that this increase in pay will give drivers an incentive to make plans to attend MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY on Friday nights."

Top 5 payout will look like this: 1st - $1,000, 2nd - $700, 3rd - $500, 4th - $400 and 5th - $300.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY's final schedule will be announced very soon with the 2019 Season Opener already scheduled for Friday, April 26th!

A second announcement, that produced almost immediate excitement throughout social media, is something that people at the 2018 Championship Awards Banquet heard about, but is now being released to the entire public; MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY will be having a massive fan celebration / giveaway night on Friday, August 30th - the Friday of Labor Day weekend! There will be three huge prizes that fans will have a chance to win.
  • 1st prize - 2019 Polaris 450 Sportsman (courtesy of M & M Lawn and Leisure!)
  • 2nd prize - Trip for 2 to Las Vegas (4 days, 3 nights)
  • 3rd prize - Family trip to the Kalahari (3 days, 2 nights)

Each night an adult fan visits a race at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY they will receive a special ticket as they come through the front gate; these tickets can then be placed in a special celebration prize bucket by the MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY apparel trailer. On Labor Day weekend all of these tickets will be combined into one big bin and winners will be drawn!

In addition to the three main 'Grand Prizes', there will be a near 'over-flow' of many other prizes, including TVs, gift cards, racing related apparel, etc.!

In order to be a winner, though, the race fan must be present at the Friday, August 30th Labor Day Weekend event!

So, make sure to make plans for Friday, August 30th as you surely won't want to miss this night!

The third announcement released is that our MTS Hornets will now be running under USRA Tuner rules. While MTS Hornets will not be an actual sanctioned division, the class will follow USRA Tuner rules. More details will be made available soon concerning some specifics of the rules but this decision should make for a more competitive field of Hornets at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY in 2019.

After the 2019 season MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY will evaluate how the season went and make a determination if MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY would like to sanction the Hornets in 2020.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is very excited to get the 2019 race season under way and hope that all drivers and fans alike are just as excited as well!
