World of Outlaws Boothill Showdown this Weekend
Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 30, 2014) – The most anticipated week of the year at Dodge City Raceway Park is finally here, as the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars will take to the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas for the annual Boothill Showdown this Friday and Saturday.
The world’s best Sprint Car drivers will sling the Dodge City clay for two consecutive nights with full cards of qualifying, heat races and feature events on both nights.
Advance tickets for the World of Outlaws Boothill Showdown at Dodge City Raceway Park are available online at http://dirtcar.ticketforce.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=129.
Advance ticket combos for both nights are available for $75 for reserved seats and just $65 for general admission. Fans who purchase tickets in advance will also receive a free fan pit pass. Single day tickets are $45 for reserved seating and $40 for general admission. Children’s tickets (12 and under) are $10 per night in general admission seating only.
The Boothill Showdown will mark the second consecutive weekend of Sprint Car action at the Dodge City oval, coming off the heels of a successful Steve King Memorial this past Saturday night topped by C.J. Johnson in the NCRA vs. ASCS Sooner ranks and Jake Bubak in the URSS Sprint Cars.
Donny Schatz, who topped the opening portion of last year’s Boothill Showdown, enters the weekend on a hot streak with wins in three of the most five recent World of Outlaws events to open up a 93-point advantage over defending series champion Daryn Pittman. Pittman, who hails from just a few hours away near Tulsa, OK, topped last year’s Boothill Showdown finale.
While five-time series champ Schatz and Pittman square off for the title once again, Paul McMahan and Joey Saldana are staying within striking distance as well. The duo of McMahan and Saldana, who ranks as the winningest WoO driver at DCRP, have combined to post fast time in more than half the WoO races this season with 23 quick times (15 for Saldana and 8 for McMahan) in 42 events thus far.
Steve Kinser continues his farewell tour with the World of Outlaws with other heavy hitters vying for coveted Boothill Showdown honors including Sammy Swindell, Aussie Kerry Madsen, Pittman’s Kasey Kahne Racing teammates Brad Sweet and Cody Darrah, David Gravel, 2012 DCRP winner Kraig Kinser and 2011 winner Jason Sides among others.
The World of Outlaws will be accompanied by the Colorado Lightning Sprints on both nights with Vintage Cars joining in on Saturday’s festivities.
