The high-banked 3/8-mile clay oval located in the rolling hills of Southern Minnesota will be host to the world’s elite open-wheel dirt modified drivers as this year’s blockbuster has a few alterations due to the COVID-19 pandemic with the USMTS and Deer Creek Speedway staff looking to keep peace with State of Minnesota regulations regarding gatherings and social distancing.

This year’s event will be a two-day show on Friday and Saturday, September 25-26, and will feature a $5,000-to-win, $400-to-start main event on Friday with a $10,000-to-win, $550-to-start feature on Saturday, plus the annual $2,000-to-win Non-Qualifiers Race.

Again this year the Christie Door Company Iron Man Challenge featuring USRA B-Mods will be racing for $1,000 and $1,200 to win, respectively, on Friday and Saturday with valuable Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series national points up for grabs.

There is no practice night his year and hot laps will be on Friday at 6 p.m. only. There are no plans to have hot laps on Saturday.

The top 15 in heat race passing points are locked into “A” Main each night with the top 8 redrawing for the first eight starting positions. An additional 15 drivers will advance from the “B” Mains and 30 cars will start the main event each night in both classes. Saturday’s championship features will go three-wide for the green flag starts.
