WEBSTER CITY, Iowa — Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series have released a tentative 2011 schedule of events.

The campaign currently features 85 nights slated at 57 dirt ovals in 13 states, with as many as eight additional shows yet to be penciled in. The schedule is highlighted with return engagements to 34 facilities that hosted a USMTS event last season, 10 venues that are returning to the line-up after an absence of a year or more, and 10 dirt ovals that will play host to the tour for the first time.

The USMTS Southern Series, which tallied separate points and crowned its own champion for the past four seasons, will now be a part of the USMTS Casey’s General Stores National Tour with two regional champs emerging from those events.

The season opens Feb. 17-19 at the Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas, with $2,000 to win on Thursday, a $3,000 top prize on Friday and $4,000 earmarked for Saturday’s winner. The series champion will be crowned Sept. 22-24 at Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn.

The biggest event on the schedule will take place at Deer Creek, which will host the inaugural World Modified Dirt Track Championship, April 6-9. With a whopping $20,000 going to the winner and a minimum $1,500 to each of the 30 feature starters, the early-season blockbuster is expected to draw the biggest names in open-wheel dirt modified racing to Minnesota.

The other high-dollar event on the schedule takes place Oct. 19-22, with Humboldt (Kan.) Speedway hosting a $15,000-to-win non-points extravaganza.
