At 13 years of age, Trevor Hunt became the USRA's youngest champion in 2013 with his Iron Man Challenge B-Mod title.

Officials from the United States Racing Association have released the 2013 schedule for the USRA Iron Man Challenge featuring USRA Stock Cars and USRA B-Mods.

The fourth season for the Iron Man Challenge campaign boasts 25 dates at 12 of the finest dirt ovals in Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri and South Dakota.

Both classes will be in action on 11 of those nights, USRA B-Mods will fly solo at 11 events and USRA Stock Cars have three dates to themselves.

Last season 360 tough-as-nails pilots took part in the Iron Man Challenge, including 86 USRA Stock Car drivers and 274 USRA B-Mod competitors.

The Iron Man Challenge will run in conjunction with the Modifieds of the USMTS Casey’s Cup at all but two events. It will be a Great American, all-USRA affair on the Fourth of July at the Upper Iowa Speedway in Decorah, Iowa, and the USRA Stock Cars visit the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., for the fourth and final time in 2013 when they share the race card with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The 2013 season for the USRA B-Mods will kick off with a doubleheader March 8-9 at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., on Friday and Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo., on Saturday. They return to Humboldt two weeks later to compete all three nights of the King of America III Modified Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 21-23.

USRA Stock Cars open their 2013 campaign the following weekend, March 29-30, at the LA Raceway in La Monte, Mo., on Friday and I-35 Speedway in Winston, Mo., on Saturday. Both nights will also feature USRA B-Mods along with the USMTS Modifieds.
