2020 USRA B-Mod National Champion Jim Chisholm

USRA Director of Track Operations Bryce Hall, in conjunction with RacinDirt.com, recently spoke with 2020 USRA B-Mod National Champion Jim Chisholm to discuss this past year in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series and what lies ahead for the driver from Osage, Iowa, who turned 18 years old on February 6.

In a class filled with talent and experience from top to bottom and border to border, Chisholm set himself apart as the driver to beat at any racetrack on any given night. Overall, he registered 15 wins in 41 starts with 35 top-five and 40 top-ten finishes.

Seven of those wins happened at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota, where the 17-year-old high school senior from Osage, Iowa, captured his third straight USRA B-Mod track championship. He shared it in 2018 with Kadden Kath.

As part of his dominance at ‘The Creek,’ he also swept both nights of the Featherlite Fall Jamboree. Last year he swept the event when it was a three-day show.

Chisholm also picked up three wins at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wisconsin, and two each at the Hamilton County Speedway in Webster City, Iowa, and Mason City Motor Speedway in Mason City, Iowa.

To secure the title over two-time and defending USRA B-Mod national champ Kris Jackson, Chisholm had to hit the road and hit paydirt on Halloween night at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, where he won the Modster Mash main event over some of the best in the country.

While Chisholm pocketed $2,000 for his first USRA B-Mod national championship, he’ll also be making a deposit from his track championship earning and PBM Performance Products Northern Region, as well as a slew of contingency awards.
