The racing world was shaken to it's core by the passing of local USRA B-Mod racer Casey Knutson. In a way to honor his memory, MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY is happy to announce plans for the "K-TOWN KLASH - The Inaugural Casey Knutson Memorial" - which is now scheduled for Friday, July 31st, 2020!

"Anyone in the sport, specifically here at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY, knows just how special of a person Casey was", said MTS Promoter Tyrone Lingenfelter, during a FaceBook Live announcement held Friday morning February 28th, "This is our way to honor Casey's memory. Casey always liked the big shows that we have here at MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY - actually winning a few of them - and so we decided that we wanted to put on another big show, just for Casey."

MISSISSIPPI THUNDER SPEEDWAY has already put forth a strong payout for this event, the twist is that now, friends, fans, former sponsors, or local/area/regional/national businesses can get involved, with that hopes being that we can end up with a legitimate "$12K for 12K" event.

"We would love nothing more than for the winner of this event to celebrate in Victory Lane with a check for $12K - since we all know Casey's car number was '12K'", said Lingenfelter.

So here's your opportunity to get involved - via the official MTS FaceBook account: "April 24th (July 17th) is shaping up to be a special night and if you would like to donate to the B-Mod payout please call 507-474-2750, message the MTS FaceBook page or message Tyrone Lingenfelter to find out how you can make that happen!"
