Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (May 30,
2017) – This Saturday night’s Inaugural Stock Car Spectacular
was already shaping up to live up to its moniker.
Now, it will likely be beyond
“Spectacular” with a price put upon the head of Angel Munoz.
The Lamar, Colorado racer has been a
seemingly unstoppable force in this year’s IMCA Stock Car ranks
atop the 3/8-mile DCRP clay oval, racing to victory lane in all
three events thus far.
Munoz sets his sights on four wins in a
row going into Saturday’s Stock Car Spectacular that also
includes a full slate of Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint
Cars, IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds and IMCA Hobby
The Stock Car Spectacular already had a
posted winner’s share of a healthy $750.
Now, courtesy of BMI, the ante has been
upped even more with the bounty. If anybody
can take the win ahead of Munoz, that driver will receive an
extra $300 bonus to push the win total to $1,050 provided that
Munoz finishes the race.
Munoz can cash in as well if he can dodge
the bounty hunters. Munoz will pocket an
extra $100 if he takes a fourth win in a row from his scheduled
starting position in the draw-redraw event.
Munoz could cash in even more if he opts
to surrender his starting position and start tailback in the
30-lap Stock Car Spectacular main event. If
he can rally from the tail to take the win, he’ll collect an
extra $500 to push the potential winner’s share to $1,250.
Either way, Saturday’s Stock Car
Spectacular winner will collect a minimum of $850 with a
potential payout of as much as $1,250.
While Munoz has taken all three wins this
season at DCRP, no other driver has yet to finish on the podium
more than once. Jack Pepper, reigning track
champion Michael Pepper and Dusty Witthuhn have each posted
runner-up finishes with Landon Maddox, Jason Rogers and Cody
Zimmerman each landing third-place finishes.
With his three-for-three run to open the
season, Munoz has opened up a 53-point advantage over Jack
Pepper in the title chase with. The battle
for second is a tight one with just four points separating
Pepper, Dusty Witthuhn and Travis Baird with Ondre Rexford
rounding out the current top five.
Reigning Precise Racing Products DCRP
Sprint Car champion Taylor Velasquez has moved atop the point
charts with other drivers leading the way into Saturday’s action
