CRANDALL, Texas -- USRA RHS Modifieds have found a second place to call home in the State of Lone Star State as the RPM Speedway of Texas will feature the mud-slinging open-wheel machines as part of their weekly Friday night program in 2012.

Last season, the Cowtown Speedway in Kennedale signed on to feature the USRA RHS Modifieds and had a successful freshman season with healthy car counts.

“We had the pleasure of meeting promoter Wesley Manry last year when he attended the Fall Jamboree in Minnesota, and we have been looking forward to forming a partnership with him and RPM Speedway ever since,” said USRA president Todd Staley. “Sometimes you just know good, smart people when you meet them, and the feedback we have heard from drivers and fellow promoters in the area has only enhanced our belief that he has a top-notch facility and great staff working for him.”

Drivers in the USRA RHS Modified division will compete for a points fund worth up to $1,500 at season’s end to the track champion plus multiple contingency awards for several drivers in the class.

A $10,000 top prize awaits the USRA RHS Modified national champion in the American Racer USRA Weekly Racing Series.

The 2012 season will mark the fourth year of operation for the quarter-mile dirt oval where Charlie Smith of Forney is the defending Modified track champion.

In addition to the USRA RHS Modifieds, Friday night programs will also feature Limited Modifieds, Street Stocks, Bombers and 305 Winged Sprints.

Opening night is slated for Friday, March 9, 2012.

The RPM Speedway is located southeast of Crandall on US 175 to CR 4106 (Bud Stoy Rd. exit) to the intersection of CR 4104. For more information, call 972-427-6822 or check out online.

The USRA was founded in 2002 with the sanctioning of Modifieds and Stock Cars at the Thunder Valley Speedway in Fayetteville, Ark. Hobby Stocks were added in 2003 and the organization grew steadily over the next three years with 14 tracks hosting USRA events in 2005. The B-Mod division arrived on the scene in 2006 and since then, USRA Weekly Racing Series national champions have been crowned in all four premier divisions.
