While the IMCA Modifieds battle it out for a $1,200 winners share, the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, IMCA Sport Modifieds and IMCA Hobby Stocks will be in action as well on the card that goes green at 7:30 p.m.

Oberlins David Murray, a multi-time IMCA Modified national champion, has topped three of four previous Dodge City Modified Stampede features including a sweep of both nights of the inaugural edition in 2013 and then another win in last years version.

Past track champion Brendon Gemmill stands as the only other driver to reach Modified Stampede victory lane with a 2014 triumph. Gemmill, who is one of only two drivers along with his father Troy to finish among the top ten in all four previous Modified Stampede features, rallied from 13th to claim fifth in this past weekends season opening event.
