The first of four URSS stops at DCRP in 2013, Saturday’s card marks the fourth round of competition for the 305-ci Sprint Cars thus far.

Barry Crane of Ulysses, KS, topped the URSS Kansas opener at Liberal on April 27 with Ness City’s Luke Cranston and Hill City’s Jeff Radcliffe splitting victory honors this past weekend at Oberlin, KS, and Lexington, NE.

The URSS Sprint Cars made a pair of stops at Dodge City Raceway Park in 2012 with Colorado champion Jake Bubak victorious in the first outing before veteran Wichita shoe Mike Peters topped the season-ending event.  Dodge City’s Brian Herbert is the reigning URSS champion.

While Sprint Cars attack the 3/8-mile oval for the first time of the year, Randy Wilson, Clay Sellard, Billy Phelps and Jarett Lunow will lead the way into Saturday’s championship chase action.

Wilson has posted a pair of fifth place finishes to jump into the early IMCA Modified points lead by just two points over Mike Lunow, while Clay Sellard’s opening day triumph has him in the top spot in IMCA Sport Modifieds by just four points over April 20 winner Jeff Kaup.

Billy Phelps has posted a pair of podium finishes to take the early IMCA Stock Car points lead while Jarett Lunow is two-for-two in Hornet action on the inner asphalt oval.

After Saturday’s card, the track will sit idle for two weekends before firing back to life with another full card of championship action including IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Thunder Cars and Hornets on Saturday, June 1.

Eighteen overall nights of action at Dodge City Raceway Park over the course of 2013 includes several special events including the TORC Off Road Trucks in April, the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars on July 5-6, a pair of $1,200-to-win IMCA Modified tilts in July along with USAC Sprint Cars on August 23-24 and four rounds of URSS Sprint Car competition along the way.
