Boothill Showdown Just Ten Days Away

21 June 2016 | Featured News | |    

droud&tbj050716 980Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 21, 2016) – Dodge City, Kansas is notorious for some epic battles over some serious loot over the years.

It’s a tradition that will be renewed in just ten days as ten large, as in $10,000, will be up for grabs for the NCRA 360-ci Sprint Car ranks at Dodge City Raceway Park’s “Boothill Showdown” featuring the Steve King Memorial.

While the NCRA forces battle it out for the $10K winner’s share during the two-day affair on Friday and Saturday, July 1-2, the 305-ci URSS vs. Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars mix it up for a $2,000 winner’s cut. The Colorado Lightning Sprints will be in action as well on both nights with upwards off 100 Sprint Cars expected to fill the DCRP pit area to kick off the Fourth of July weekend.

Among those leading the way into the “Boothill Showdown” are defending Steve King Memorial winner Tony Bruce, Jr., and Don Droud, Jr., who bested the NCRA forces earlier this season at DCRP.

Liberal native Bruce, Jr., who will be piloting Danny King’s No. 88 entry, outdueled 2014 Steve King Memorial winner C.J. Johnson to top last year’s event atop the 3/8-mile DCRP clay oval.

Driving the Ochs Brothers No. 1x entry that Bruce, Jr., drove to victory lane last year, Lincoln, Nebraska’s Don Droud, Jr., has been difficult to handle on the NCRA trail this season with a dominant May 7 triumph at DCRP among his three series wins thus far.

In the 305-ci URSS vs. DCRP Sprint Car ranks, Luke Cranston and Taylor Velasquez lead the way into the event.

Cranston, the reigning DCRP Sprint Car champion and current URSS Kansas points leader, will be gunning for a second consecutive Steve King Memorial triumph after wiring the field in last year’s edition. Cranston comes off his first DCRP win of the year this past weekend.

While Ness City’s Cranston leads URSS Kansas Region points, it’s Turpin, Oklahoma’s Taylor Velasquez atop this season’s Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car points on the strength of two victories. Velasquez leads Cranston by just 11 points in the track title chase.
