SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (July 23) - The World is yours for the taking.
The United States Modified Touring Series and Deer Creek Speedway have partnered with RacinDirt.com to provide race fans with live broadcast coverage of all the high-powered excitement of the 3rd Annual World Modified Dirt Track Championship presented by Bauer Built Tire and Hanson Tire Service.
Slated for this Wednesday through Saturday, July 24-27, the live pay-per-view broadcast will be available all four nights for race fans that do not have the fortune of attending the biggest dirt modified event in the universe.
From the legendary high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval in Spring Valley, Minn., the mega-event of the summer will be produced by RacinDirt.com in conjunction with the USMTS and Deer Creek Speedway. Not only will you get every lap of every race every night, but RacinDirt.com has you covered with pre-race interviews, special features and more from the WMDTC.
This first-ever RacinDirt.com live broadcast is brought to you by Midwest Sheet Metal, Day Motor Sports, Tiger Rear Ends, FK Rod Ends, Fragola Performance Systems and GRT Race Cars.
The excitement continues to build as the days tick down with nearly 100 of the planet’s hottest drivers expected to battle for the most coveted trophy in dirt modified racing. In last year’s 75-lapper, Ryan Gustin blistered the field to take home a record $25,000. The inaugural event in 2011 went to Brad Waits of nearby Rochester, Minn., as he conquered the toughest, most talent-laden field ever compiled while driving a four-year-old, used chassis he acquired one week prior to the show.
Subscribers will witness a complete program each day. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will feature group qualifying, heat races, last-chance races and a 35-lap main event for the USMTS Modifieds, with the top 6 in overall points each night being locked into Saturday’s finale.
Saturday’s program will feature an “alphabet soup” of main events that will culminate with a 31-car starting field in the championship race. Even if a driver has some tough luck during qualifying on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, he or she still has the chance to climb the ladder of main events on Saturday to earn a spot in the finale.
The blockbuster event will award no less than a whopping $20,000 to the winner of the non-stop, 100-lap feature race on Saturday night.
Joining the racing card on Wednesday will be the Iron Man Challenge featuring USRA B-Mods on Wednesday and the Iron Man Challenge USRA Stock Cars share the spotlight on Thursday. Friday and Saturday night will feature Wissota Midwest Mods as the support class.
If you can’t be at the Deer Creek Speedway this week, don’t sweat it. You don’t have to miss a single lap or listen to all of the stories about ‘what might have been.’ It’s easy to watch, simply visit www.RacinDirt.com, create an account, buy your subscription and tune in live this week.
A four-day subscription to the pay-per-view event is just $69.95. Single-day subscriptions will be available beginning Wednesday. Single-day subscriptions are $19.95 per day Wednesday-Friday or $29.95 on Saturday. All major credit cards and PayPal are accepted.
