GRAND FORKS, ND (July 28) - This Friday night racing continues at River Cities Speedway with the AFCO Race of Champions Qualifier for the WISSOTA Late Models, Midwest Mods, and Street Stocks.
The winner of each feature will be granted a starting spot in the AFCO Race of Champions event at the WISSOTA 100 in Huron, SD in September.
On the Sprint Car side of tomorrow night's schedule, Mark Dobmeier will be trying to do something no other driver has done in River Cities Speedway history*. Coming in, Dobmeier has won the last seven consecutive NOSA Sprint Car races at the three-tenths mile bullring, which broke his previous Sprint Car record of six wins in a row and ties him with former Super Stock driver, Jerry Messner, for the overall win streak record.
If Dobmeier has one thing on his side, it's momentum. The Grand Forks, ND pilot has won his last five races in a row between River Cities and Badlands Motor Speedway and looks to be peaking at the right time of the season with the Knoxville Nationals coming up in just two weeks.
The green flag flies at 7pm sharp. Save $3 per adult by purchasing your ticket at Home of Economy, University Station, Gateway Cenex, StaMart, ElRoco Bottle Shop, or Northdale Oil! Students receive 50% off the ticket price with a valid Student ID.
