DCRP Season Finale Set for September 27!September 3, 2014
The state-of-the-art facility in southwest Kansas brings the curtains down on the 2014 season with the Second Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event on Saturday night, September 27.
The URSS Sprint Cars will headline the season finale with its season championship event along with the track’s five championship chase divisions of IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Thunder Cars and Hornets.
With another pair of events on the docket for the Soderberg Memorial for the URSS Sprint Car ranks, Colorado’s Jake Bubak is closing in on a second URSS National championship with an 88-point advantage over Liberal’s Steven Richardson with Zach Blurton, Jeremy Huish and Jed Werner also among the top five.
Three different drivers have reached DCRP victory lane is as many United Rebel Sprint Series (URSS) events atop the 3/8-mile clay oval this year including Wyoming’s Zac Taylor on May 10, Bubak on June 28 and Great Bend’s Jared Kern on July 25.
While the Sprint Car ranks battle it out to the last lap, at least two of the track’s championship chase divisions look to come down to the final checkered flag as well.
Austin Allen is just 13 points ahead of Ryan Heger going into the headline division IMCA Modified season finale on September 27. While Wichita’s Allen tries to secure a second consecutive track championship, Hugoton’s Heger will try to win the season finale for the third year in a row and slip away with the title in the process.
The Thunder Car title will likely come down to the wire as well with Matt O’Hair just five points ahead of William Bauer going into the Soderberg Memorial Championship event.
Jeff Kaup, Perry Misner and Jarett Lunow can each secure championships by simply starting their respective “A” Feature events on September 27. It will be the second title in a row for both Kaup in IMCA Sport Modifieds and Lunow in Hornets while it will be the second IMCA Stock Car championship in three years at DCRP for Misner.
While those championships are all but sealed, numerous positions throughout the top ten in points in all five divisions are up for grabs going into the highly anticipated season finale at DCRP.
