SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Springfield Raceway owners Jerry Hoffman and Doug Bland are pleased to announce that the track in Springfield, Mo., will fly the United States Racing Association banner again in 2013 for both the Modified and B-Mod divisions.

First joining the USRA in 2009, the racy "Quick Quarter" has played host to some of the best racing action week after week, especially in the USRA Modified division.

For 2013, Springfield will feature USRA Modifieds, USRA B-Mods, Midwest Modz, Legends Cars, Young Lions Legends, Pure Stocks and Street Stocks on the regular shows. USRA Modifieds and USRA B-Mods will be competing for track and national points as part of the USRA Weekly Racing Series.

Last season, two Springfield regulars -- track champion Jackie Dalton and runner-up Mitch Keeter -- both finished in the top 20 in USRA national points in the Modified class while veteran Rob Muilenburg just finished outside of the top 20.

Veteran Modified driver Scott Drake of Webb City captured not only the Springfield Raceway track title, but also the national championship in the USRA B-Mod division while competing with a GM Performance 602 crate motor from Reliable Chevrolet in Springfield. Drake started most of his features from the 12th starting spot.

Springfield racer J.C. Morton finished third in the national standings while running a partial Springfield schedule.

The USRA Weekly Racing Series gives drivers points on their best 20 feature finishes, plus offers bonus points for car count and starting position versus finishing position.

"USRA offers a good point fund for not only the track, but also in the national chase," said Hoffman. "The insurance policy they offer the drivers is a big plus and for the cost of the license is well worth the value."

Springfield will sanction the opening race for national points on Saturday, March 30, as the track holds the 2nd Annual March Madness Shootout featuring MARS Super Late Models, USRA Modifieds, USRA B-Mods, Midwest Modz and Legends. USRA Modifieds will compete in a $700-to-win, $90-to-start feature with a $25 entry fee. Passing points will be used in the local classes. The top points-earners will redraw for starting spots. The pit gate will open at 2 p.m., grandstands open at 4:30, hot laps begin at 5:45 and racing action starts at 6:30. Adult admission will be $20 while kids ages 6-12 are $5 and children ages 5 and under are free. Pit passes will be $35.
