What was supposed to be a four-night championship weekend for the Summit USMTS National Championship is now one giant night only following the cancellation of Friday’s Grant Junghans Memorial at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.
Deluged by rainfall over the last 48 hours with a promise of more by local weather experts, officials have determined there is no other option.
USMTS president Todd Staley said that plans are already underway to combine the next Grant Junghans Memorial for June 2022 with a goal of no less than $10,000 to win.
Taking dirt to a new level: The Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s currently features 33 nights of racing with the winners of those main events set to take home over $300,000 in earnings from more than $1 million in prize money earmarked for the 2021 campaign.
Most main events pay at least $10,000 to win while the others carry a $5,000 top prize or more. And if that weren’t enough, more than $200,000 is committed to the top ten finishers in the 2021 points standings with a record $70,000 reserved for the 2021 USMTS national champion.
