By Lonnie Wheatley  DODGE CITY, Kan. – It has gone by in a flash it seems. And now the 2020 racing season at Dodge City Raceway Park concludes with Saturday night’s eighth annual Jerry Soderberg Champion­ship Memorial atop the 3/8-mile clay oval in southwest Kansas.  It has been a condensed season that didn’t get under way until June 20, more than two-and-a-half months after the originally scheduled April 4 season opener, due to COVID-19 concerns. And now, three quick months later since the green flag finally flew at DCRP, five racers will earn their championship crowns on Saturday night. The Hambelton Racing DCRP Sprint Cars square off with the United Rebel Sprint Series for the final time this season with the IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks closing out their DCRP seasons as well.  Saturday’s racing action will get under way at 7:30 p.m. Past Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship Winners:  2019 – Zach Blurton (Sprint), Clay Sellard (Modified), Blaine Walt (SportMod), Chris Oliver (Stock Car), Tathan Burkhart (Hobby [Read More]
