WARRENSBURG, Mo.--Continuing a long-standing tradition dating back to 1998, Central Missouri Speedway is poised to host fans and drivers for a huge Memorial Day Weekend of special events racing in multiple car classes this Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24 featuring over $40,000 in race payouts.

The last few weeks of wet weather has certainly worn on the patience of the dirt-racing fraternity who are now chomping at the bit for CMS to return to action. Drivers and fans alike will not be disappointed in what awaits them at CMS this weekend.

Highlighting the weekend is a pair of back-to-back $1,500-to-win USRA Modified feature events that will surely attract some of the best Modified aces on the USRA points-chasing circuit. Both main events pay no less than $175 to start and have some of the best pay-downs offered in the entire Midwest over the weekend.

The race lineup for Saturday, May 23, features USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, B-Mods and Lightning Sprints. For Sunday, May 24th, the race program consists of USRA Modifieds, USRA B-Mods, Pure Stocks, ULMA Late Models and the Allstar Midget Series.
