The HUNT for the USMTS Casey's Cup rolls through Wheatland, Missouri for the 5th time as the Stars and Cars of the United States Modified Touring Series make their only appearance of 2014 at the "Diamond of Dirt Tracks". Top USMTS drivers Jason Hughes, Jeremy Payne, Johnny Scott, Tommy Meyer, Ryan Gustin, Rodney Sanders, Stormy Scott, Zach Van Der Beek, Kelly Shryock, Jon Tesch, Derrick Ramirez, and more are expected to be in action. The Tri-Lakes RV USRA B-Mods and the Carson's Corner Napa Factory Stocks will also be in action plus for the second time at Lucas Oil Speedway, the Battle of the Badges will visit the facility on August 9th as the race will feature Missouri's finest Law Enforcement Officers, all racing to raise money for charity and for the title of top cop.
The officers will be driving late model Ford Crown Victoria's that will provide a "cop car" look for the race. Each driver seeks the support of sponsors and must raise at least $500 dollars per race to compete. All the cars on the track were at one point police cruisers. Some of these cars went on to be taxi cabs and have racked up over 300,000 miles on them. Some were pulled out of junk yards and have been given a second chance. The driver and their crew members have stripped the vehicles of their factory interior and replaced it with roll cages and the safety equipment necessary to be on the track. The Battle of the Badges race will raise money for Special Olympics. All funds raised from this race will go toward supporting Special Olympics year round sports training and competition program for the more than 15,000 Missouri athletes across the state. This is surely an event you won't want to miss! Lucas Oil Speedway is "America's New Motorsports Destination".
