Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 1, 2016) – Late Model racing fans, your time is here as Late Models will take to the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval in southwest Kansas for the only time of 2016 this Saturday night.
Saturday’s tilt at DCRP will mark the third round of competition this season for the touring NCRA Late Model series.
Along with the NCRA Late Models, Saturday’s card that goes green at 7:30 p.m. will also include DCRP championship chase action for IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.
Lyle Shepard will try to make it three-for-three in NCRA Late Model action after topping the initial two rounds of competition at Mayetta and Wichita in May.
Late Models last competed at DCRP in May of 2014 when Ryan Gustin wired the field to take the win in the 35-lapper.
In this week’s DCRP championship chase action, Kevin Tabor, Michael Pepper and Cody Davis lead their respective divisions into the night.
Tabor holds a 12-point lead over Brian May in the IMCA Sport Modified title chase while three-time and reigning champion Jeff Kaup has fallen 54 points off the lead pace after hitting a run of bad luck in the most recent pair of events.
Gunning for a second consecutive IMCA Stock Car championship, Michael Pepper has picked off two of the last three feature wins to open up a 53-point advantage over Marlin Hogie.
