USMTS unveils 2023 schedule

USMTS unveils 2023 schedule

With the dust barely settled and the engines nearing room temperature, officials from the United States Modified Touring Series have announced the biggest and boldest schedule yet for the Silver Anniversary season featuring the nation’s premier dirt modified outlaws.

It’s time for America’s greatest dirt modified drivers and their fantastically-rabid fans to call work and get 2023 vacation days locked in.

Next year’s Summit USMTS National Championship campaign looks an even more aggressive and richer than the record-setting 2022 campaign that saw Dustin Sorensen take home a gargantuan $100,000 for winning the points title.

As of today there are 44 nights of racing slated, and just the winners of those main events are set to take home more than $300,000 with nearly $2 million in purses and prize money earmarked for those shows.

Most events in 2023 will be three-day mega-events with an open practice on the preceding Wednesday. Eleven nights pay $3,000 to win and 13 contests will award $5,000 to the winner.

There’s also a $7,000-to-win feature, nine shows paying $10,000 to win, two $11,000-to-win contests and a $12,000-to-win event on the calendar.

Two finales carry a $15,000 top prize and there’s two races that will dole out $20,023 and $25,000, respectively, to the winners.

Just like last year, a paycheck for $100,000 is reserved for the 2023 USMTS National Champion and $10,000 to the Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year.

The 2023 campaign lights the fuse with the 13th Annual Texas Spring Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 2-4, at the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas.

Action wraps up October 12-13 at the all-new Arrowhead Speedway in Colcord, Oklahoma, featuring a $20,023-to-win finale and the crowning of the 2023 USMTS National Champion.
