Winona, MN (Saturday December 3rd, 2016) Friends, Family, Fans, and Fun; those are just a few of the aspects of local racing that continue to make it so popular. But the competition of the sport is always one of the highlights, and those who can become the best of the competition are always rewarded. For the eighth year in a row, the racers, their families, crew members, car owners, sponsors, & speedway staff joined together at Winona's Riverport Inn & Suites to remember the completed racing season and celebrate those who enjoyed a successful season, at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY's 2016 Championship Banquet.

After a delicious dinner presented by the Riverport Inn & Suites staff, it was time to begin the awards portion of the evening.

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY owner Bob Timm began by announcing, much to the delight of racers, that 2017 will continue on much of the success enjoyed in 2016:
  • USRA Ltd Late Models will return for a third year of growth,
  • USRA A Mods will return for another season,
  • USRA B Mods will return for another season,
  • MTS Hornets and 600 Mods will return for another season,
  • Action will resume on "The LIGHTNING SPEEDWAY" as the future competitors of the sport return for another season in Slingshots,
  • USRA Hobby Stocks will continue as the full-bodied entry level division
Then it was time to pass out the hardware! The top-5 finishers in the point standings of all 9 weekly MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY divisions were awarded with Trophies (ranging in size from 3 to 6 feet in height), and the top-10 in the one WISSOTA and four USRA divisions were also given their series points fund checks and championship jackets.

The 2016 award winners were as follows:
