The event slated for Wednesday, Aug. 16, for the USMTS Modifieds and Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods at the Hamilton County Speedway has been postponed to next Wednesday, Aug. 23.

The event will also feature USRA Hobby Stocks at the historic half-mile dirt oval in Webste City, Iowa.

It’s been more than ten years since the three divisions have battled at the Scotland County Speedway but a new chapter will be written when the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup and Iron Man Challenge invades the Memphis, Mo., oval on Aug. 17.

The mega-show will be highlighted by the United States Modified Touring Series as they continue the USMTS Hunt for the Casey’s Cup powered by S&S Fishing & Rental and the battle to become the 2017 USMTS national champion.

In addition to the stars and cars of the USMTS, the tripleheader will also spotlight the Iron Man Challenge featuring Holley USRA Stock Cars and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods. While Modified drivers will be fighting for at least a $3,000 top prize, the Stock Car and B-Mod feature winners will pocket $1,000 each.

Presented by J&J Ag, the event will be the 22nd visit by the USMTS to the semi-banked 4/10-mile dirt oval in the northeast corner of the Show-Me State, but the first since Ryan Gustin’s victory on June 19, 2010.
