Sixth Annual Modified Stampede Saturday at DCRP!May 14, 2018
After getting pushed back by bad weather last month, the Sixth Annual Modified Stampede will hit the track at Dodge City Raceway Park this Saturday night, May 19.
In addition to a $750-to-win IMCA Modified feature, Saturday night’s action will also include a full card of championship chase action featuring the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMC Hobby Stocks with racing action going green at 7:30 p.m.
Woodward, Oklahoma’s Cole Traugott is the reigning Modified Stampede champion, racing to his second consecutive event win last year ahead of defending track champion Clay Sellard and Randy Wilson.
While Traugott has a pair of Modified Stampede victories to his credit, other past event winners include David Murray (2015 and both nights in 2013) and Brendon Gemmill (2014).
Traugott and Larned’s William Nusser were the only drivers to post multiple Modified wins in ten total events last year.
Ulysses’ Kevin Gray bested the Modified ranks in the recent DCRP season opener on Saturday night, May 5, fending off a stout field of contenders that included Arizona’s R.C. Whitwell, Joel Lane, Kale Beavers, Jack Kirchoff and 2016 track champion Nick Link among others to post his first win since the 2015 season.
Other opening night winners jumping out to early point leads included Brian Herbert in the DCRP Sprint Cars, Jeff Kaup in IMCA Sport Modifieds, Troy Burkhart in IMCA Stock Cars and Duane Wahrman in IMCA Hobby Stocks.
