welcome them back to the Fountain City, WI speedway for the 2012 Fastenal Season opener, "We're really excited to have Fastenal along for the ride
at the 2012 season opener this year. We're really opening up the racing season with some thunder this year with the USMTS National Touring Series."
The competition in the USMTS National Touring series is the best Modified racing around. The mix of traveling super stars mixed in with the local
A-Mod drivers presents the best of both worlds for dirt racing fans.
The USMTS National Touring Series will be at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY as part of a triple header weekend of racing which starts Thursday
at Rice Lake Speedway, continues Friday night April 27th at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY 2012 season opener Presented by Fastenal and wraps
up Saturday at Deer Creek Speedway.

speedway, "We consider it an honor that they have chosen MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY as one of those tracks. In just four years we've turned
a thought and a dream into facility that racers and fans alike really enjoy.
"We are expecting car counts to be upwards of 60-70 cars for this event - not counting all of the competitors who will be on hand for the other
support divisions that night as well", continued Timm, "I really think this could be one of our biggest events of the entire season. All of the best
and most popular Modified races in the country will be on hand with our own local racers as well. Friday April 27th will also be Fastenal Employee
night at the speedway, so we're looking forward to seeing many Fastenal Employees joining in for the fun with our regular crowd of race fans."
