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.
