SPRING VALLEY, Minn.—Every year, the Labor Day holiday signals a new school year, falling leaves, the start of football season and the approaching end of the racing season.

But for the past 16 years, it has taken on another meaning: the countdown to the biggest event in all of dirt modified racing.

America’s undisputed marquee mega-event for dirt modifieds—the Featherlite Fall Jamboree—blasts off three weeks from today, and this year’s battle between the Best of the Best the sport has to offer promises to be the biggest ever with the boldest payoffs in event history.

Fans will continue to witness a complete program all three nights highlighted by the United States Modified Touring Series in their final event of the Hunt for the USMTS Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental and the crowning of the 2015 USMTS National Champion on Thursday night.

The Holley Iron Man Series featuring USRA B-Mods will share the spotlight all three nights. Saturday and Sunday will be sanctioned by the USRA for the Modified division with valuable national points on the line. More than 200 cars and drivers are expected in two classes and nearly $200,000 in posted awards possible.

Set for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 24-26, USMTS/USRA Modifieds will be shooting for a $5,000 each of the first two nights and a whopping $10,000 winner’s share on Saturday.

If you’re a big fan of yellow flags, this event probably isn’t for you. But if witnessing the “who’s who” of dirt modified racing circling the high-banked clay oval of the Deer Creek Speedway at nearly 100 mph, this one is right up your alley.

Ron Jones was the champion of the inaugural event in 1999. Since then, the list of Featherlite Fall Jamboree champions include Johnny Saathoff, Willy Kraft, Mark Noble, Dan Daniels, Kelly Shryock, Chad Kinder, Dean Mahlstedt, Tim Donlinger, Terry Phillips, Joey Jensen and Jason Hughes (the only driver to claim multiple titles).

Rodney Sanders is the defending champion of the event and two-time defending USMTS National Champion.

Early bird race fans can get a free preview of the action and drivers will get their chance to make final adjustments to their machines with an open practice from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 23.
