Added Money for Sport Mods on Saturday!
Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 29, 2013) – The United Wireless IMCA Sport Modifieds will have a little extra incentive to reach the front during Saturday’s Pack the Stands night at Dodge City Raceway Park as some extra money has been added to their purse for the event.
Saturday’s card, which offers free admission to Dodge City residents, also includes the track’s other championship chase divisions of IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Thunder Cars and Hornets with racing action going green at 7:30 p.m.
An extra $500 has been added to the United Wireless IMCA Sport Modified purse on Saturday night by an anonymous donor.
Two hundred of the added $500 will go to the feature winner to bring the victor’s total take to $500. One hundred dollars has been added to both second and third place with 50 dollars added to both fourth and fifth, bringing the total payout for second through fifth to $325, $275, $200 and $175, respectively.
The United Wireless IMCA Sport Modified division has featured highly competitive racing action on a regular basis in 2013 with seven different drivers reaching victory lane in ten feature events thus far.
Utica’s Austin Walker has made the visit to victory lane most often with three triumphs while Woodward, Oklahoma’s Mike Shenberger has scored a pair of wins. Single triumphs have been claimed by Jeff Kaup (Woodward, OK), Clay Sellard (Bucklin, KS), Andy Barton (Dighton, KS), Clay Money (Penokee, KS) and Randle McRoberts (Dodge City, KS).
While he has notched only one victory, Kaup has posted seven other finishes among the top four including three runner-up showings to amass a points lead of 65 markers over Utica’s Toby Witthuhn with Clearwater’s Matthew Crowell, Austin Walker and Dodge City’s Josh Appel also among a tightly-bunched top five in points.
Admission to Saturday’s action for those that are not residents of Dodge City is just $10 for adults while children 11 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
Only one night of DCRP racing action remains after this Saturday’s card, that being the September 28 Jerry Soderberg Championship Memorial event that includes the URSS Sprint Cars along with the track’s IMCA Modifieds, United Wireless IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Thunder Cars and Hornets.
