SPRING VALLEY, Minn. -- Thousands of race fans and more than 150 of the nation’s elite open-wheel dirt modified drivers will make their annual pilgrimage to the Deer Creek Speedway next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20-22, for the 14th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree – the undisputed marquee event for America’s most talented Modified drivers on dirt.

As of Sept. 18, the entry list consists of 104 USMTS Modifieds and 38 USRA B-Mods for this week’s blowout.

With nearly $200,000 in posted awards for the annual event, this year's blockbuster will see another stellar payoff as the USRA B-Mods will be making their first-ever appearance at the Featherlite Fall Jamboree this year.

Fans, on the other hand, will witness a complete show featuring more than 300 laps of action each night. Early bird race fans can get a free preview of the action and drivers will get their chance to make final adjustments to their machines with an open practice from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday.

Thursday's USRA B-Mod main event carries a $500 top prize. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. and the first green flag waves at 6:30 p.m. The night will wind down with a karaoke party in the pits following the races.

On Friday, USRA B-Mods have a $600 paycheck awaiting the winner. Pit gates open at 3 p.m. and the first green flag waves at 6:30 p.m. The day will kick off with the annual golf tournament in the morning. Fans, drivers, crews and families will put a lid on Friday's festivities with the return of The Dweebs performing live on stage following the races.

Saturday's explosive finale will feature the hottest dirt Modified pilots in the nation battling for one of 30 spots in the USMTS Modified main event that will take the green flag three lanes wide and ten rows deep. Drivers will battle for a $6,000 top prize and at least $900 just to take the green flag. USRA B-Mods will compete for $750 to win their feature race.

The annual Bean Bag Tournament begins earlier in the day on Saturday.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, breakfast will be served by the Bear Creek Lutheran Church in the hospitality area from 8-11 a.m.
