Curtain falls at Dodge City with Soderberg Memorial 

By Lonnie Wheatley

DODGE CITY, Kan. (Sept. 26) – The curtains came down on the 2015 season at Dodge City Race­way Park with Brendon Gemmill, Jamie French, Angel Munoz and Reagan Sellard earning Saturday IMCA feature wins.

Past track champion Gemmill worked forward from his 12th starting position to capture his se­cond Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified win of the year atop the 3/8-mile DCRP clay oval.

With Jimmy Brozek racing into the lead from the second row outside on the opening circuit, Gem­mill went to work on the topside and surged into the lead at the midway point. Once out front, Gem­mill moved to the bottom and drove away to put away his tenth DCRP win over the past four seasons.

The parity continued in the IMCA SportMod ranks with French wiring the field to become the 12th different winner in as many events this season.

French raced into the lead from the third starting position on the opening round and gradually slipped away.

In IMCA Sunoco Stock Car action, Munoz added his lone local win of the year in the division to a previous SportMod triumph.

The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event came down to the final round with lapped traffic play­ing into Sellard’s hands for his second triumph of the year.

Sellard paced the opening eight rounds of the 15-lapper on the low side before Kyle Pfeifer rallied by on the top side. But when a lapped car slid up in turns one and two on the final circuit, Sellard raced back underneath Pfeifer to snare the win.
