WARRENSBURG, Mo.—After a heart-breaking end to last week’s events at CMS thanks to unexpected moisture ruining the evening, the staff at CMS is ready to swing the gates open for the first special events of the season this Saturday and Sunday, May 28-29.

The two nights of competition is highlighted by the USRA Modifieds competing for $3,000 to win on Sunday in addition to the weekly payout of $1,000-to-win on Saturday; this means one driver could go home with $4,000 for sweeping the weekend!

Promoters Earl and Susan Walls have waved track registration fees for the entire weekend in all classes and welcome any new drivers that wish to compete throughout the weekend. Note, pit passes are sold separately from entry fees for USRA Modifieds on Sunday.

USRA Modified drivers should take note of the special bonuses offered by promoters Earl and Susan Walls for the big three summer holiday special events. For any driver who wins the Memorial Day $3,000-to-win race and then also wins the Tom Wilson Memorial over Independence Day weekend, and then goes on to win the $3,000-to-win race later in the year over Labor Day weekend, they will earn a $5,000 bonus for the clean sweep! If you add the base purse “to win” money for the three events together it totals $11,000, now add on another $7,500 in bonus money and that totals a whopping possible $18,500 going to a driver who sweeps all three events. However, there’s still a $2,500 bonus for any driver that doubles up and wins any two of the three big-money events this summer.
