Weather woes wipe out USMTS plans in Webster City
WEBSTER CITY, Iowa (April 4)—Below-freezing temperatures are forecasted for the rest of this week in Webster City, Iowa, so officials have made the decision to pull the plug early and cancel the 16th Annual Kwik Star Spring Meltdown at the Karl Chevrolet Hamilton County Speedway.
Slated for this Friday and Saturday, April 8-9, at the historic half-mile oval, there are currently no plans to reschedule this event for a later date this season.
Instead, Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt racers will now set their sights on the 2nd Annual Dairyland Showdown on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 4-6, at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wis.
USMTS Modifieds will pay $3,000 to win Thursday, $5,000 to win Friday and $10,000 to win Saturday as they share the spotlight with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series in what promises to be another standing-room-only event at Bob Timm’s picturesque palace of speed.
