DODGE CITY, Kan. (April 6, 2024) – First he won the king of the hill.

Next, Jeremy Huish reigned over the inaugural Sprint Car Nationals at Dodge City Raceway Park.

Huish led all 30 laps from the pole Saturday night, collecting the $5,000 IMCA RaceSaver checkers ahead of Conner Thomas and Steven Richardson.

“It’s very, very cool to win the first one at Dodge,” said Huish, who’d put his name on another exclusive list by winning RaceSaver Nationals last September. “I heard Conner early but the track was very fast and you could catch up with (the back of the field) very quickly.”

He pulled away after the last, late restart and won by about a straightaway.

The win by Huish was his third in four starts dating back to last fall in the Steve Cranston-owned Maxim ride previously piloted by Luke Cranston.

Thomas and Richardson had won qualifying features on Friday night. Danny Wood and Koby Walters rounded out the top five in Saturday’s main event.

Other feature winners on Friday were Steven Swarthout in the Friesen Performance IMCA Northern SportMods, Cody Williams in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Grant Logue in the Mach-1 IMCA Sport Compacts.

Brett Berry topped the night two $1,000 to win, Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifier for Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds. Troy Burkhart as the Saturday IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner.
