URSS Rebels headed to Dodge City 

DODGE CITY, Kan. – After two weeks off for drivers to compete in the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Nationals and a weekend to regroup, the Myers Engine United Rebel Sprint Series will return to Dodge City Raceway Park for the fifth annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial this Saturday, Sept. 16.

Leading the Rebels into Dodge City will be current points leader Zach Blurton, Jed Werner, Ste­ven Richardson, Ty Williams and host of others as they will duel with Dodge City’s best Taylor Velasquez, Luke Cranston, Tyler Knight and others to make up a great field of cars for Dodge City’s championship night.

“It’s an honor to be able to compete at this great event as Jerry was not only a great friend of mine but was also very instrumental in helping start the URSS,” said series founder Rick Salem. “We’re looking for a great field of cars from Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma as this will be the last IMCA point race for the state of Kansas.”

Comfort Suites in Dodge City has added money to the purse that will now pay $750 to win with $125 to start. Other sanctioned divisions running Saturday night will be the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.
