POOR WEATHER FORCES CANCELLATION OF 2018 FALL FESTIVAL!!
From official MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY social media:

"After lengthy discussions this morning between MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY owner Bob Timm and myself we have officially decided to cancel the 10th Annual Fall Festival. This was a very tough decision for us to make as the Fall Festival has been traditionally a great weekend for us to end the season but we have many factors working against us.

First, this show is set up finacially to work with two full days of racing. I understand last year we made it work on this same weekend but we were very fortunate to have 70+ degree weather and only one other marquee event to compete against. With the USRA Nationals going on and Topless Nationals event, we are going to be spread thin on our car count. We talked with Nate from Ogilivie already and they are considering changing up there schedule so, any Wissota drivers now can still make plans to head up there and compete. After talking to Todd Staley this morning all USRA cars that would like to compete at the USRA Nationals can still sign up at the pre-entry amount. All you have to do is call 515-832-6000 and let I-35 Speedway know that you are coming.

Second, our track surface with all of the rain and cool temps the past few weeks is not where we believe it should be. We take a lot of pride in having a smooth and high quality racing surface for all of our classes. Plus, with the temperatures expected to be 26 degrees or cooler Saturday night we will need to have all of our Water trucks winterized to prevent possible damage to equipment.

To conclude this very long post, we want to thank each and every driver, fan, employee and volunteer that has supported MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY this season! Each and every one of you continue to make this place go. Our Banquet will be on January 19th at the Black Horse Bar & Grill and we will have the band Burnin' Whiskey playing as soon as the awards ceremony is over! Please stay tuned to the Facebook page and mississippithunder.com for news about the 2019 season! We have a lot of great things in the plans to make our 11th season the best one yet!

Thank you,

Tyrone Lingenfelter (Promoter)"

GUSTIN, BAHR, KRAUSE, AND JUMBECK NIGHT 3 FEATURE WINNERS OF "7TH ANNUAL DAHL AUTO PLAZA MODIFIED NATIONALS"!
Jackson suffers lap-1 DNF - Misses Out On Big Pay!








(click image to see larger version)

Night #3 of the "7th Annual Dahl Auto Plaza Modified Nationals" at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY reminded racers and race fans alike that this sport can be rough, tough and owes nobody anything!

As Kris Jackson's hopes of a $14,000 weekend, went away quickly with a 1st lap DNF in the evening's B-Mod feature, Tony Bahr raced around Troy Hovey to fill the void and grab one of the two $7,000-To-Win payouts. Ryan Gustin backed up his Friday night speed at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY and grabbed his second straight feature win $7,000-To-Win A-Modified feature and grab a $1000 bonus.

Travis Krause and Kyle Jumbeck returned to Victory Lane as well with USRA Hobby Stock and redbox+ 600 Mod feature wins, respectively . . .

Night #2 of the "7th Annual Dahl Auto Plaza Modified Nationals" at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY presented several story lines worth noting; put into HashTag format, it might look something like this --> #RollOvers #WallRides #6WideBattles #BumperTag, #VinylSwapping #PartsSharing #PitParties and last, but certainly not least . . . #Possible14Grand!

Ryan Gustin once again showed his speed and dominance at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY by reeling in the #20 Swan Energy Modified of Rodney Sanders and then passing to collect the $4,000-To-Win A-Modified feature; but the real attention grabber was the apparent ease with which Lebanon, MO's Kris Jackson spanked the B-Mod field to grab his second straight feature win and position himself as the only driver in attendance who could 'run the table' and potentially head for home after Saturday night's program with $14,000 in his wallet . . .

Heartbreak for Jake Timm, as he lead the entire 30-lap A-Mod feature . . . that is, until R.C. Whitwell pounced on an opportunity and snuck his #96T underneath Timm's #49 coming out the final turn of the final lap, to capture the $2,000-To-Win Night 1 Victory . . .
