- Behind the wheel of his Gary Beard Trucking #86 Open Wheel Modified, Kyle Beard made the trip to Jackson Motor Speedway (Byram, Mississippi) on Friday night for the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) sanctioned contest. In a stout field of 47 cars, Beard placed 5th in his heat race sending him into the B-Main. Transferring the Top 6 into the opening night feature, Kyle secured his spot with a 4th place finish. Rolling off 19th for the A-Main, Beard dropped back to a 26th place outing in the 40-lapper.

On Saturday Beard followed the USTMS series to Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) on Saturday for another chance at the $3,000 payday. Falling back to a 9th place outing in his heat, Kyle transferred into the B-Main for one last shot at the A-Main. Taking the Top 6, Kyle charged through the field eight spots but came up one position short with a 7th place finish.

Closing out the weekend with the USMTS series, Beard stopped at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi) on Sunday competing in his Super Late Model along with his Modified. Starting the night off by storming to a heat race win in his Modified, Beard earned the 6th-starting position for the main event. Working his into a podium spot, Kyle crossed the line in 2nd but it was determined in post-race tech after the race that he would be disqualified for not having the correct rev-limiting chip in his engine. In the Late Model division, Beard earned the pole positon for the feature after laying down the fastest time overall in qualifying. Bringing home a podium spot, Kyle landed a 2nd place finish behind Mike Palasini Jr. with Tommy Surrett, Brett White, and Austin Arnold completing the Top 5 finishers.
