The King of America IV Modified Nationals is set for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 27-29, as more than 100 of the nation's elite open-wheel dirt modified drivers will descend on the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., for the fourth straight year.
The winner of Saturday's 100-lap main event will earn $10,000 while every driver making the big dance will pocket no less than $1,000 to start. Saturday's "A" Main will also award four gift cards worth $250 for drivers who finish the race and finish fifth on back. In addition, there will be a $500 Hard Charger Award for the driver advancing the most positions.
Each driver will run four heat races from four different starting positions-two on Thursday and two on Friday. Passing points will be combined for the best three of four heat races with the top 12 drivers in overall combined passing points from Thursday and Friday's heat races locked into the first six rows of Saturday's "A" Main.
Also on Thursday and Friday, the top 16 in passing points each night will run a 20-lap feature with $1,000 up for grabs for the winner.
