DCRP Season Opener this Saturday!

16 April 2012 | Featured News | |    

DODGE CITY, Kan. (April 16, 2012) – A new track surface and new lighting await as Dodge City Raceway Park lifts the lid on the 2012 racing season with this Saturday night’s season opening event.

Saturday night’s opener, which goes green at 7:30 p.m., features the track’s regular classes including the IMCA Modifieds, United Wireless IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Poor Boy Kustomz Thunder Cars and Hornets.

Already considered among the top dirt track racing facilities in the nation, the 3/8-mile gem has been improved upon entering an ambitious 2012 season that includes 16 nights or racing action over a dozen different weekends.

Among the improvements is 400 loads of clay that were added to the racing surface upon the completion of the 2011 racing season.  And, in just the past couple of weeks, the Musco lighting has been upgraded to brighten up the action even more.

Saturday’s card kicks off the chase for the DCRP championship in each of the five classes, with the track’s next action featuring the USAC National Midget series on May 4-5.  Modifieds and Sport Modifieds will be in action on both USAC Midget nights, with Thunder Cars filling out the May 4 card and then Stock Cars rounding out the May 5 event.

Other special events on the 2012 slate of events at Dodge City Raceway Park include World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, USAC Sprint Cars, ASCS National Tour, NCRA Sprint Cars, URSS 305 Sprints and BST Modifieds.

Tickets to Saturday night’s season opener are just $12 for adults.  Seniors receive a $5 discount, with children 11 and under admitted free if accompanied by an adult.  Pit passes are $30.

Dodge City Raceway Park is located on the south edge of Dodge City, KS, on US 283, then 0.9 miles west on US 56, then 0.1 miles south.  For more information, contact the track at 620-225-3277 or check www.dodgecityraceway.com.
