Mods 072613Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August 26, 2013) – Following on the heels of this past weekend’s Inaugural Freedom Tour non-wing Sprint Car double, the action continues with this Saturday’s championship chase action at Dodge City Raceway Park featuring all five of the track’s regular classes.

And it’s time to pack the track’s spacious grandstands, as all residents of Dodge City that can provide proof of residence receive free admission to this Saturday night’s racing action that gets under way at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday’s tilt will include the headliner IMCA Modifieds along with IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and Thunder Cars on the 3/8-mile clay oval with the Hornets on the inner asphalt oval.

With only the September 28 Jerry Soderberg Championship Memorial Event remaining after this Saturday night’s card, the championship point battles are hanging in the balance with Austin Allen, Jeff Kaup, Billy Phelps, Matt O’Hair and Jarett Lunow leading their respective divisions into the night.

Austin Allen of Goddard, KS, carries a 27-point advantage over Woodward, Oklahoma’s Jon Herring, Jr., in the IMCA Modified title chase with Dodge City’s Jesse Smith just another eight points back in third as Kevin Gray and Ryan Heger round out the current top five in points.

Cole Traugott picked off his first DCRP score in Modified action this past Saturday night to become the seventh different winner of the season through ten events.

With seven winners in ten United Wireless IMCA Sport Modified events as well, April 20 winner Jeff Kaup of Woodward has opened up a 65-point advantage with Toby Witthuhn moving into second.  Only 23 points separate the drivers ranked second through fourth (Witthuhn, Matthew Crowell and Austin Walker) with Josh Appel rounding out the current top five.

Although he isn’t one of the eight drivers to win in the initial ten IMCA Stock Car features, Mooreland, Oklahoma’s Billy Phelps has built up a 118-point advantage over Marlin Hogie and can virtually secure the 2013 championship this Saturday night.  Hogie is 20 points ahead of Brett Copeland in the battle for second with Justin Temaat and Michael Pepper filling out the top five.

The Thunder Cars feature the tightest points battle with Laverne, Oklahoma’s Matt O’Hair just four points ahead of Buffalo, OK, shoe Dustin Walker and Bucklin’s Cody Davis another 11 points back in third.  Bryan Habiger is just 40 points off the lead pace in fourth with Tom Reed rounding out the top five.

Dodge City’s Jarett Lunow holds down the top spot in Hornet action with four wins in five tries.  With the Hornets taking to the track for the first time since June 15, Lunow has a 30-point advantage over Brandon Bogner.

Admission to Saturday’s action for those not residents of Dodge City is just $10 for adults with children 11 and under admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Only the season-ending Jerry Soderberg Championship Memorial Event on September 28 that includes URSS Sprint Cars along with each of the track’s regular divisions remains after Saturday’s card.

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.
