By Lonnie Wheatley DODGE CITY, Kan. – This Saturday night’s Inaugural Stock Car Spectacular at Dodge City Raceway Park was already shaping up to live up to its moniker. Now it will likely be beyond “Spectacular” with a price put upon the head of Angel Munoz. The Lamar, Colo., racer has been a seemingly unstoppable force in this year’s IMCA Sunoco Stock Car ranks atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City clay oval, racing to victory lane in all three events thus far. Munoz sets his sights on four wins in a row going into Saturday’s Stock Car Spectacular that also includes a full slate of IMCA Modifieds, IMCA SportMods and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks. The Stock Car Spectacular already had a posted winner’s share of a healthy $750. Now, courtesy of BMI, the ante has been upped even more with the bounty. If anybody can take the win ahead of Munoz, that driver will receive an extra $300 bonus to push the win total to $1,050 provided that Munoz finishes the race. Munoz can cash in as [Read More]

PERRIS, Calif. – When it comes to families in racing one must look no farther than the IMCA Modifieds when they return to Perris Auto Speedway this Saturday night, June 3. Four of the top five places in the championship standings are occupied by fathers and their racing children and all are expected to be in action Saturday, when spectator gates open at 5 p.m. and the first race will be at 7 p.m. Billy Wormsbecker is the IMCA point leader heading into round four at Perris. However, if he feels some families may stick together and gang up on him, it is perfectly understandable. Mike Kirby, who has two wins in the first three races, trails Wormsbecker by five points. Trailing Kirby by two points is defending track champion Chuck Becker. Becker’s son Brandon, a San Bernardino County sheriff, is currently fourth. Kirby’s daughter Brenda, a college student who turned 21 two weeks ago, is fifth. “When you watch these kids race, it is clear the apple did not fall far from the tree,” Perris Auto Speedway promoter [Read More]
