WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Central Missouri Speedway will reach an historical milestone on Saturday, Sept. 5, when the track hosts its 50th Modified special payout event since 1998. The big three summer holidays always bring added excitement to the speedway for drivers and fans with extra money and bragging rights on the line and this year’s Labor Day Weekend special events will add to the track’s legacy and contribution to Modified racing in the Greater Kansas City metro. The weekend serves as the final night of action for the 2015 season.

The past winner’s list from Labor Day weekend racing at CMS in the USRA Modified division reads like a who’s who in the history of Kansas City area racing. The likes of current national USRA points leader Terry Schultz and still active drivers Richard Layne, Aaron Marrant, Tim Karrick and Jim Moody, have all claimed a fall win at the speedway to join the list of other winners from years gone by including Dave Meyer, who has more fall wins than any other driver with three. Justin Boney, Joe Walker, Tom Charles, Dustin Boney and Johnny Bone, Jr. also have fall CMS wins to their credit.

This year, the Labor Day Weekend of events also serves as the final two race nights of the 2015 season. USRA Modifieds headline the weekend action with a pair of $1,500-to-win, $180-to-start events on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 5-6. The events are two separate programs featuring two complete payouts! In addition, track champions will be crowned on Saturday night for the other divisions while the USRA Modified title will be decided Sunday night.

Both Saturday and Sunday will be USRA track and national points nights for USRA Modifieds. Also on the bill throughout the weekend, ULMA Late Models join in on the action Saturday. USRA B-Mods, Allstar Midgets and Lightning Sprints close out the weekend on Sunday.

All Labor Day Weekend information is easily accessible at Look for the “Labor Day Weekend Race Info Headquarters” tab from the main page. There you will find a frequently asked questions document, an event flyer, admission, race program, and car class payout information along with much more general information about racing on both nights.

There are no track registration fees in any class. All pit passes are $35 each night. USRA Modified drivers have an entry fee of $50 if they have raced in at least two weekly shows (May and July specials do not count) prior to Sept. 5 in a Modified. If they don’t meet these criteria, the entry is $75. All other car classes pay pit pass only, or for USRA B-Mods a temporary USRA license if they do not already have one. This is in effect for Sunday night only. Extra start money is on the line for USRA B-Mods on Sunday in which the start money is $75.

In the URSA Modified division, Terry Schultz from Sedalia leads the track championship points race by a mere 21 ahead of Tim Karrick, and only 24 points in front of Gunnar Martin.

Shad Badder has agreed to bring his two-seater late model to the track on both nights to help raise money and awareness for the cause and chances to ride in the two-seater car will be sold on race night. Badder will pilot the two-seater rides during the intermission breaks each night.
