Plan of attack revealed for Summit USMTS Spring Nationals

February 28, 2023

The Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt embarks on its biggest, boldest schedule yet this weekend at the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, for the 13th Annual Summit Spring Nationals.

"With fans and racers alike—as well as officials from the USMTS and Rocket Raceway Park—keeping one eye on their weather apps, we just want to let everybody know our plan of attack for this weekend's monster show," said USMTS President Todd Staley. "In 25 years of doing this, I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times the weather forecast has been totally wrong. but they've been right sometimes too."

With a dismal forecast for Thursday and into Friday, racetrack and series officials have made begrudgingly gone to Plan B.

Thursday's event is canceled while Friday's event for all classes will now move to Sunday afternoon along with the previously announced payouts for Friday. We will race Saturday's big finale as planned. Summit USMTS Modifieds, USRA Stock Cars, USRA Limited Mods, USRA Factory Stocks and Eco-Mods are on tap both days.

Officials have also pulled the plug on Wednesday's practice session. time permitting, there may be a morning/early afternoon practice on Saturday.
