DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 29) – Clay Sellard needed less than two laps to race into the lead from eighth and led the rest of the way in the 20-lapper for IMCA Modified to become the fifth different winner in as many races Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park.

Sellard stretched his lead out to a full half-lap by the time a late caution flew to set up a four-lap dash to the stripe the Mid-Season Championship Night show.  Sellard took off once again to se­cure the victory ahead of Tom Beavers, who made his way past Kevin Gray at the midway point to post runner-up honors. 

Beavers finished just ahead of his son Kale, with William Nusser and Gray rounding out the top five.

Dakota Sproul took command late and then survived an ailing engine the closing laps of the 20-lap feature to snare his third IMCA SportMod win of the season. 

Angel Munoz added more hardware to his collecting by storming to his fifth IMCA Stock Car fea­ture win of the season in six events. Munoz battled past Troy Burkhart on the third lap and led the rest of the way in the 15-lapper.

Tathan Burkhart rounded out the night by racing to his third Dodge City win of the season in the 20-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event.
