Humboldt declares USRA sanction for 2020
By: Jeff Nun
HUMBOLDT, Kansas (Dec. 30)--When cars roll onto the 3/8-mile bullring in Southeast Kansas for the first time in 2020, they will be defined under a familiar sanctioning body as the Humboldt Speedway rejoins the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series after a three-year stint with NASCAR Home Tracks.
"We appreciate everything NASCAR Home Tracks has done for Humboldt Speedway the last three years," said Ryan Whitworth, co-owner of Humboldt Speedway. "USRA will allow for our drivers to compete locally and nationally with other area tracks and USRA traveling series. When it comes down to it, ultimately we have to decide what is best for our drivers."
USRA Modifieds ran a limited slate in 2019 with Tanner Mullens winning the track title. The Humboldt Speedway will sanction USRA Modifieds and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods as part of their weekly Friday night programs in 2020.
"We are happy to have Humboldt Speedway back under the USRA banner," said Bryce Hall, USRA Director of Track Operations. "Humboldt has long-standing tradition and we feel it's a perfect fit for the USRA."
Competitors in the Modified and B-Mod divisions at the Humboldt Speedway will earn points in the CP-Carrillo Central Region presented by MVT in addition to a best-in-dirt national points fund as part of the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series, plus lucrative regional and track points funds and a powerful smorgasbord of contingency awards.
