DODGE CITY, Kan. (April 6, 2018) – For the
second weekend in a row, unfavorable weather conditions have
forced the postponement of the season opening event atop the
3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval in southwest Kansas.
Expected record low temperatures and a
wintry mix on Friday night and then “Real-Feel” temperatures
approaching single digits on Saturday night has forced the
cancellation of Saturday night’s card that was to include a full
slate of DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds,
IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA Hobby Stocks.
The state-of-the-art facility will now
kick off the season on Saturday night, April 21, with the Sixth
Annual Modified Stampede. Woodward,
Oklahoma’s Cole Traugott raced to his second consecutive
Modified Stampede victory last season with other past winners
including David Murray and Brendon Gemmill.
The April 21 event featuring the IMCA
Modifieds will also include the Precise Racing Products DCRP
Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars and IMCA
Hobby Stocks with racing going green at 7:30 p.m.
