The United States Racing Association will host its annual awards banquet for drivers competing in this year’s Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series on Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City.

Those attending this year’s celebration are encouraged to reserve their rooms as soon as possible to take advantage of huge savings. For reservations, call the Ameristar Casino Hotel at (816) 414-7107 and request the discounted room rate for "US Modified Touring" using code SCUSMA8.

Headlining the honorees will be Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national champions Jason Cummins (USRA Modifieds), Elijah Zevenbergen (Holley USRA Stock Cars), Lance Hofer (USRA Late Models), Ryan Gillmore (Out-Pace USRA B-Mods), Jordan Eddleman (USRA Limited Mods), Dustin Gulbrandson (USRA Hobby Stocks) and Kyle Balik (USRA Tuners).

USRA-sanctioned series competitors such as Iron Man Challenge champions Derek Green (Holley USRA Stock Cars) and Dan Hovden (Out-Pace USRA B-Mods) will also be honored along with 13 first-ever USRA Regional champs and several USRA member track operators, marketing partners and more.

A record crowd of nearly 300 people attended last year’s gala, and this year’s party will once again be a joint effort for both the USRA and United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS). Fans and members of the media are invited to attend too.

Individual tickets are $40 each and are on sale now by calling the USMTS offices at (515) 832-7944 during normal business hours. The deadline to order tickets is Jan. 12.

In addition to the awards ceremony, the evening’s meal will feature a luxurious and plentiful selection of fine food, plus a huge dessert bar. A cash bar will also be available.
