LANSING, Minn. -- The annual Labor Day Weekend swing for the United States Modified Touring Series was on the card this week along with the final track points night for the USRA B-Mods.

Storms skirted around the Lansing area during the afternoon and it looked good for a while. But a storm popped up west of the speedway as drivers sign in and fans started to gather. The system blew in with thunder, lightning and heavy rains about an hour and a half before the scheduled start time. The rain pounded down and in a short period of time the grounds were swamped and that put an end to any thoughts of racing.

Last week Todd Scharkey of Kasson was crowned track champion in the French’s Repair & Fabrication USRA Modifieds for his second track title with his first in 2005.

There were a couple of close point battles that Mother Nature decided for the competitors. Josh Mattick of Rose Creek won his first track title in the L&D Ag USRA B-Mod division.

The track will take a couple of weeks off until Friday, Sept. 12. That will feature the annual Border Wars special for the Midwest Modifieds, B-Mods and Sport Mods. Other divisions will be racing that night also. There is also a possibility that the rained out USMTS show could be made up that night too. Keep updated on the final show of 2014 by monitoring for more announcement on the Sept. 12 program.
