USMTS Modified drivers will be able to earn USMTS points or USRA national points, but not both. A complete and separate show of qualifying heat races and main events are on tap all three nights. Drivers will draw for their starting positions on Thursday with the top 12 in heat race passing points advancing to the main event. Friday and Saturday will utilize group qualifying to set heat race lineups.

Nine different drivers have claimed victory in the previous ten Summit King of America contests and the list is a who’s-who of dirt modified racing.

Reigning Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year Brooks Strength captured his USMTS feature win in last year’s finale to notch the biggest triumph of his career. On Friday night, Carlos Ahumada Jr. was with winner—his first and only career USMTS victory.

Prior to an off-year for the COVID-19 pandemic, Ricky Thornton Jr. captured the crown two years earlier while two-time USRA Modified national champion Lucas Schott was the 2018 winner. Two-time USMTS national champion Ryan Gustin won in and became the first and only repeat winner at the 2017 event.

Zack VanderBeek captured the title in 2016 after a thrilling late-race battle with 2014 race winner Rodney Sanders. Jason Hughes was the 2015 champion; Stormy Scott topped the 2012 event and nine-time USMTS champ Kelly Shryock claimed the inaugural crown in 2011.

In the 55 USMTS main events staged at the Humboldt Speedway, Hughes has more than doubled his nearest competitor with 13 career wins while Scott has six wins. Gustin and Shryock both have five and Sanders follows with four victories.

Drivers with two wins include VanderBeek, Terry Phillips, Johnny Scott, Jason Krohn and Johnny Bone Jr. On one occasion the checkered flag has waved for Thornton, Schott, Tanner Mullens, Kyle Strickler, Tim Donlinger, Jon Tesch, Jeremy Payne, Mitch Keeter, Steve Holzkamper and William Gould.
