More than 200 attendees took in Saturday night’s festivities at the Western State Bank Expo adjacent to the 3/8-mile DCRP clay oval with the top contenders in each of the track’s five championship chase divisions recognized during the evening.

Taking top accolades in each division were Taylor Velasquez in Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, Nick Link in IMCA Modifieds, Kevin Tabor in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Michael Pepper in IMCA Stock Cars and Matt O’Hair in IMCA Hobby Stocks.

“My dad and I have been racing together for 17 years, and this is our first championship,” the 25-year old Velasquez of Turpin, OK, said of his DCRP Sprint Car championship.  “We’re just a small, family team, it’s great to get a championship like this and to get it at Dodge City Raceway Park is a real honor.”

While others among the top ten and each champion also picked up their hardware and point fund monies, Stock Car champ Michael Pepper picked up an extra $100 and the 2016 DCRP Feature Winner board for racking up the most feature wins over the course of the 2016 season.  Pepper racked up nine wins to top the overall win charts for a second year in a row.
