TP INVADES HUMBOLDT
FOR KING OF AMERICA VIII
18, 2018) Terry Phillips Racing (TPR) invaded
Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas from March 15-17 for
'King of America VIII,' which was once again sanctioned by
the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS). In Thursday
night's $2,500 to win weekend lid lifter, Terry Phillips won
his heat race from the pole position and later finished tenth
in the 40-lapper, which featured little passing. On Friday
evening in the prelims for the $10,000 to win 'King of America,'
Terry placed third in his first heat race of the night, but
unfortunately suffered a flat tire and ran seventh in his
final heat race. In the C-Main on Saturday, TP got a hole
in the radiator early in the race, which effectively ended
his weekend and caused him not to be able to transfer into
the 75-lap headliner. Full results from the KOA weekend can
be viewed online at www.usmts.com.
TO DEEP SOUTH WITH USMTS GANG
11, 2018) Terry Phillips unloaded his Open
Wheel Modified for the first time in 2018 over the March 9-10
weekend in the state of Mississippi with the United States
Modified Touring Series (USMTS). On Friday night in a $3,000
to win shootout at Jackson Motor Speedway near Jackson, Mississippi,
Terry finished fifth in his heat race and second in his B-Main
before starting the 40-lap headliner from the outside of the
eighth row. TP then blasted all the way up to the fourth position
with only 8 laps remaining, but a flat tire relegated him
to a seventeenth place showing.
In a similar $3,000 to win program for the USMTS
gang on Saturday evening at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian,
Mississippi, Terry was unfortunately disqualified in his heat
race due to a deck height infraction that was caused by a
racing incident the night prior. He then stormed up to second
in his B-Main before climbing to eleventh in the final finishing
order of the 40-lap main event. Full results from both weekend
battles can be accessed online at www.usmts.com.
