The 19th season of the undisputed Best of the Best in dirt modified competition takes place over the course of 269 days and is jam-packed with a mix of ongoing classic events at staple venues and new venues that are sure to please fans of dirt modified racing.

For the fourth year in a row, the season will launch in February with a flurry of three-day shows running through the end of March.

Opening weekend takes place Thursday-Saturday, February 9-11, with the inaugural event at the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas.

Two weeks later, the series will trek to the State of Mississippi for the first time with stops penciled in at the Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram on Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, and the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian on Saturday, February 24.

The 6th Annual Cajun Clash takes place Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 2-4, at Gene Boyters Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, Louisiana, followed by another tripleheader shoot-out the following weekend at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

The month of March wraps up in style with the running of the $15,000-to-win King of America VII Modified Nationals, March 23-25, at the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas.

Several venues return to the calendar after being absent for one or more years. Kennedale Speedway Park in Kennedale, Texas, is back for the first time since 2013 on Friday, May 12, after two rain-outs the previous two tries and two wins by Johnny Scott in the two before that.

Another two-time victim of Mother Nature over the last five seasons the Lonestar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas looks to see the green flag for the first time since 2011 on Saturday, May 13.

On Tuesday, June 13, the USMTS returns to the Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, South Dakota, for the first time since 2011, and a tripleheader in Wisconsin happens July 11-13 at the Luxemburg Speedway in Luxemburg, 141 Speedway in Maribel and Oshkosh SpeedZone Raceway in Oshkosh.

The Mid-America Speedway, South Coffeyville, Okla. now under new ownership and managed by legendary racer Al Purkey will kick off the 2017 Hunt for the USMTS Caseys Cup on Thursday, August 3.

Finally, on Wednesday, August 30, the series will make its way back to the Kossuth County Speedway in Algona, Iowa, for the first time since 2010 in a pivotal Labor Day Weekend clash during the Hunt for the USMTS National Championship.

In addition to King of America VII in March, four other high-profile big-money special events are on the list. The 19th Annual Modified Masters will take place at the Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisconsin, on Friday and Saturday, June 16-17, where the single biggest paycheck in series history will be handed out when the winner collects a whopping $50,000.

Friday and Saturday, July 21-22, will see the USMTS join the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again for the 7th Annual Silver Dollar Nationals at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., with a $10,000 reward awaiting the USMTS winner.

Two big shows cap the 2017 season, beginning with the 19th Annual Featherlite Fall Jamboree at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minnesota, Thursday through Saturday, September 21-23, and the curtain will close with the 2nd Annual Chisholm Trail Showdown at the 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, on Friday and Saturday, November 3-4.

Overall, more than $300,000 is earmarked just for the main event winners along the 2017 USMTS campaign trail, with nearly $2 million in purses and contingencies going into the pockets of the worlds greatest dirt modified racers.
