May 18, will take the tireless USMTS touring titans to the historic West Plains Motor Speedway. Mother Nature thwarted the series debut here in 2011, but fans finally got their due last spring and witnessed nine-time USMTS national champion Kelly Shryock take down his 177th career USMTS triumph. The West Plains Motor Speedway is a 100-acre motorsports facility with an exciting 3/8-mile red clay oval surrounded by seating that will accommodate more than 12,000 fans. Fans can enjoy the action from their choice of molded contour seating, ground level bleachers or high-rise stadium style seating. On-site camping is available free of charge with clean restrooms, showers, water fill and a dump station for motor homes. Full service food and souvenir concessions are conveniently located within the facility along with acres of free parking. Gates open Saturday evening at 6:00 with hot laps at 7:00 and racing at 7:30. Also in action will be USRA B-Mods, Hobby Stocks, Super Stocks and Crate Late Models. On race day, fans can pick up a coupon good for $2 off adult grandstand admission at Casey’s General Stores locations in West Plains. The West Plains Motor Speedway is located 6 miles south of West Plains on US 63. For more information, call the track office at 417-522-9891 or 417-257-2112 on race day. The track's website can be found at www.westplainsdirt.com. All three events will award valuable points in the USMTS Arbor Masters Central Region presented by Day Motor Sports. The “Big Dog Buy-In” will be in effect each night to create a possible $12,000 weekend payoff for one driver. Each race pays $2,000 to win, but the Big Dog Buy-In allows any driver to gamble an extra $100 at the time of registration to compete for an extra $2,000 cash for taking the win. In 12 events this season, a gambler has won the main event 11 times. Entry forms for USMTS competitors are available online at www.usmts.com/downloads/entry-forms.
