DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 19, 2019) – It has been building up all season long in southwest Kansas.
After crowning the 2019 Dodge City Raceway Park track champions at last weekend’s Seventh Annual Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship and then finishing off the inaugural season of Little DCRP Micro and Kart action on Sunday, the 3/8-mile DCRP clay oval will offer up its final laps of 2019 competition this weekend.
And what grand laps they will be, as a band of Outlaws come to town to bring the curtains down on the 2019 season at Dodge City Raceway Park.
The likes of Schatz, Sweet, Gravel and more will square off to take the winner’s loot in this weekend’s World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars “Boot Hill Showdown”. The must-see event featuring the world’s best Sprint Car racers takes place on Friday and Saturday.
Remaining tickets are just $35 per night for general admission with reserved seats just $40 per night. Those planning on taking in both nights can save by getting the ticket package that includes general admission for both nights for just $65 and reserved for both nights for $70.
