Nine Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series regional champions were crowned at the end of the 2023 racing season in the USRA Modified, Medieval USRA Stock Car and USRA B-Mod divisions.

Week after week from the end of winter to the end of fall, thousands of racers compete in Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series events around America for the past 22 years, and this year drivers earned regional points at 48 different dirt tracks.

Among the regional champs, only Derek Green of Granada, Minn., was able to win both a national and regional championship. Green did his damage in the Christie Door Company USRA Northern Region driven by MVT while competing against some tough competition in the Medieval USRA Stock Car division.
