By Lonnie Wheatley

DODGE CITY, Kan. – Auto racing and the Memorial Day weekend have gone hand-in-hand in the United States for many years.  As such, it is only fitting that championship chase action at Dodge City Raceway Park continues with a special Sunday night, May 28 card this week.

And to honor those who protect our nation, Sunday’s second Lewis Automotive Night of the sea­son that goes green at 7:30 p.m. will offer free admission to military personnel and their depend­ents. Military personnel simply need to show proper ID for free admission.

Tickets are $15 for adults with children 11 and under admitted free when accompanied by an adult. A pair of bicycles will also be awarded to two fortunate children.

Sunday’s third round of title chase action atop the 3/8-mile clay oval will feature IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, as well as Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars,

The initial two nights of competition at DCRP this season have filled the pits with 98 cars for the April 15 opener and then 102 cars on May 6.
