A new era begins at the Mason City Motor Speedway this Sunday, September 15, when the historic facility located on the grounds of the North Iowa Fair hosts full-throttle dirt racing for the first time on the new, wide, high-banked 1/3-mile action track.

The first on-track competition in more than a year will see the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series featuring American Racer USRA Stock Cars, Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and Cook Racing Supplies USRA Hobby Stocks, along with the Liquid Nitro Outlaw Mini-Mod Series.

If any fan can pick the winners of the Stock Car, B-Mod and Hobby Stock features, we will give away a 2020 season pass. If more than one person picks all three winners correctly, we will draw for that pass between those people.

The pit gates will open at 1:30 p.m., grandstands open at 2, hot laps are slated for 3:30 and racing gets underway at 4 p.m. Spectator tickets are $15 for adults. Juniors (12-16) and seniors (62+) are just $10 and kids ages 6-11 are $5. Pit passes will be $35.

Sunday's feature race winner will draw five numbers from the drivers that finished fifth on back. Those five lucky drivers will pocket $100 on top of the advertised purse.

Please note that there will be no concessions or beer available at the track. Fans may bring in coolers and food to Sunday's event. Officials are working on having a food trailer at the event.

One more Sunday afternoon show is scheduled for this month. As a special treat, the USRA Modifieds will headline the show on September 22, which is the day after the final night of the Featherlite Fall Jamboree at the Deer Creek Speedway just north of the Iowa-Minnesota border. Mini-Mods will have that night off with USRA Tuners getting their shot at the new Mason City Motor Speedway.
