Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (August
14, 2017) – After a packed house took in the most recent action
at Dodge City Raceway Park on July 28, absolute mayhem is in
store for this Saturday night atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in
Saturday’s tilt at the state-of-the-art
facility will feature the Fourth Annual Sport Modified Mayhem
event that offers up a $1,000 winner’s share for the IMCA Sport
Modifieds. The Precise Racing Products DCRP

action as well on the card that goes green at 7:30 p.m.
Sport Modified Mayhem hardware has gone to

outdueling Dustin Daniels for the win last year after Mike Roach
took top honors in 2015. Penokee’s Clay Money
captured the inaugural Sport Modified Mayhem win in 2014.

five in all three previous editions of Sport Modified Mayhem at
DCRP is current track points leader Jeff Kaup.

before finishing third in 2015 and then fourth last year.

at DCRP thus far in 2017, Kaup has raced out to a 135-point lead
over the duo of Kyle Wiens and Brian May, who are tied for
second. Kaup was denied victory lane last
time out by Brandon Kenny, who was Sport Modified Mayhem
runner-up to Mike Roach in 2015.
A strong contingent of invaders is
expected to vie for Sport Modified Mayhem honors with Kaup
leading DCRP reps that include the Wiens duo of Kyle and Alex
along with Brian May, Jarett Lunow, Joey Maupin, Kohle Ricke and
defending track champion Kevin Tabor among others.

spotlight for the night, the DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds
and IMCA Hobby Stocks battle it out as well with just one more
