April 25th, 2015 - Terminal Issues for Kates at Lucas Oil Speedway
1After rain stole another weekend of United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) competition, Kates Motorsports set out to enter a United States Racing Association (USRA) Weekly Racing Series event at Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri).

A stout field of thirty-five USRA Open Wheel Modifieds converged on the state-of-the-art facility. Unfortunately, Ben's night would come to an end before it ever really got started. Terminal issues during heat race action forced Kates to retire from the balance of the program.

April 11th, 2015 - Mother Nature Shakes Up USMTS Weekend Slate
1The United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) were set for a trio of event in Texas and Oklahoma over the weekend. After rain claimed events at Superbowl Speedway and RPM Speedway, the stage was set for a doubleheader on Friday and Saturday at Longdale Speedway (Longdale, Oklahoma).

Twenty Open Wheel Modifieds registered for the event, and struggles in his heat race pinned Kates deep on the starting grid for the 30-lap finale. He went on to advance five positions from his 20th starting spot to a fifteenth place finish in the final rundown.

Unfortunately, Saturday night's event at Longdale Speedway would also fall victim to Mother Nature.
