September 25, 2019

Rainfall on Tuesday night had track officials working around the clock to get the Hamilton County Speedway racing surface ready for practice Wednesday evening, but an afternoon downpour has forced practice to Thursday morning.

Teams wanting to practice will pit outside the track Thursday morning with the pit gate opening at 11 a.m. and practice from 12 noon until 2 p.m. Teams will be able to begin parking haulers in the infield pit area beginning at 3 p.m.

Thursday night’s show will feature USRA Modifieds, American Racer USRA Stock Cars, Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks in a complete program. Competitors earn points on Thursday and Friday to determine line-ups for Saturday’s championship features.

America’s best Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series racers will showcase their talents against one another this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26-28, at the 6th Annual Summit USRA Nationals hosted by the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa.

Celebrating their 15th season of partnering with America’s best dirt tracks and the racers who compete there, the United States Racing Association’s annual fall classic will feature USRA Modifieds, American Racer USRA Stock Cars, Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Mensink Racing Products USRA Hobby Stocks. USRA Tuners will join the card on Friday and Saturday.

The event is also the season finale in the Arnold Motor Supply Iron Man Challenge for both the American Racer USRA Stock Cars presented by Medieval Chassis and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods presented by Pace Performance.

USRA Factory Stock and USRA Limited Mod competitors will do battle at the 2nd Annual Summit USRA Southern Nationals which kicks off Halloween night at the Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas.

Beginning in 2014, the first three events took place at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and then moved to Mike and Kyle Johnson’s I-35 Speedway in Winston, Mo., for the 2017 and 2018 events before finding its way to the Hamilton County Speedway this season.

Other than Mother Nature which wiped out the 2017 program, there have been no repeat champions in any division. Past Modified winners include Rodney Sanders, Darron Fuqua, Lucas Schott and Ryan Gustin. Past Stock Car winners include Dillon Anderson, Elijah Zevenbergen, Brett Heeter and Mitch Hovden. In the B-Mods, past champions include Mike Higley, Logan Martin, Chad Clancy and Kris Jackson. Previous winners in the Hobby Stock class include Eric Stanton, Cory Yeigh, Weston Koop and Tyler Schlumbohm. Tuners first appeared last season with Dakota Girard taking the win.

Each night of the 6th Annual Summit USRA Nationals will be a complete show of heat races and main events, with Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points awarded each night. This is the only USRA-sanctioned event of the week. No track, regional points are awarded at any racetrack, and national points are awarded at the Summit USRA Nationals only from Thursday to Saturday.

Sweetening the pot for competitors is the “true car count” bonus points awarded each night. At any given event at a USRA-sanctioned racetrack in America, each driver is awarded a car count bonus for national points that is equal to that event’s car count (maximum of 24 points for car counts of 24 or more). At the Summit USRA Nationals, however, each driver will earn a car count bonus equal to the actual car count with no maximum and a minimum of 48 points regardless of car count. This could have a huge impact on the USRA national points battles in every division.

Opening in July 1910, the Hamilton County Speedway is the oldest speedway in the state of Iowa. In 1938, work began on the current location at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds. The semi-banked half-mile dirt track was completed in the spring of 1939, and the first races were held on the track in September of that year.

The Hamilton County Speedway driven by Spangler Automotive is located off US 20 at exit 140, then 1.2 miles north, then 0.5 mile east on Bank St., then 0.4 mile south on Bluff St. to the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Webster City, Iowa. The physical address is 1200 Bluff St, Webster City, IA 50595.
