Byram, MS/Whynot, MS – “With the past success of the I-20 Crate Challenge in the past couple of years we think this is a good timet to do some special events with our modifieds,” commented Brian Jones with Jackson Motor Speedway.
The I-20 Modified Showdown presented by Jimmy Smith Race Tires (American Race Tires) will be a 4 race showdown with both Jackson Motor Speedway and Whynot Motorsports Park each holding 2 events. The first event of the Showdown will be held at Whynot Motorsports Park on May 5th and will be a points paying event for the Mississippi Modifed Challenge Series. The showdown will then move to Jackson Motor Speedway on June 30th. The showdown will move back to Whynot Motorsports Park on July 21st and then wrap up at Jackson Motor Speedway on August 25th for the final event of the I-20 Modified Showdown. The last event of August 25th will be a points paying event for the Mississippi Modified Challenge Series.
“We feel it was important to involved the MMCS in a couple of our I-20 Modified Showdown events because Robert (Cassada) has done a great job of promoting the modifieds in Mississippi over the last couple of years and both JMS and I wanted keep that support going,” commented Rodney Wing owner of Whynot Motorsports Park.
The I-20 Modified Showdown will have a bonus payout system in place. The amount of the bonus money paid out after the final event will be based on the number of cars that compete as well as how much more sponsor support the “showdown” can collect.
