DODGE CITY, Kan. (April 11) – Cody Davis worked his way past early leader Zach McLemore on the ninth round then held off a late charge from Reagan Sellard to win the inaugural 12-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature by half a car length Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park.
While Sellard settled for second, Matt O’Hair filled out the podium in third.
After catching a timely caution two laps into the IMCA SportMod main, Jeremy Sigler led the distance in the 20-lapper to capture his first career win in the division.
Sigler outdueled Jason Lunow on the opening circuit to nab the early lead, only to have Lunow slip under on the third round for the lead. But after a caution that put Sigler back out front, there was no stopping his No. 21J as he raced virtually unchallenged to the checkered flag ahead of Lunow with 10th-starter Jared Baird third.
Michael Pepper turned in a dominant performance to win the 12-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main event, leading all the way to the checkered flag ahead of Dusty Witthuhn and Ron Hartman.
Rain forced the postponement of the evening’s IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified main event nightcap to the April 25 card.
