DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 15) – Steven Richardson reeled in his first career feature win atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval by wiring the field in Friday night’s second annual Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP vs. URSS 305 Sprint Car Nationals 20-lap preliminary feature.

It wasn’t without a threat for the point though, as Luke Cranston closed in past the halfway point and was challenging before getting into the turn two wall.

“We’ve been running here a few years now, it feel great to finally get the dub,” Richardson said in victory lane.

Ray Seemann was second in the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car prelim. Jake Bubak, Jason Martin and Jake Martens completed the top five.
