DCMT Championship night

MANDAN, N.D. - The sixth and final night of the Dakota Classic Modified Tour is tonight in Mandan.

The guy who won the first two features is leading the points with one to go.

Hunter Marriott from Missouri has a lead on the field. He's 7-points ahead of R.C. Whitwell of Arizona. Ricky Thorton, Jr. always runs well on this tour and he's third followed by Jason Wolla from Ray, ND.

Dacotah Speedway is hosting the title and Friday's Legendary 50 is the richest modified race ever in North Dakota paying $10,003 to win.

You have to run at least half of the tour to have a chance at the big check.

"We didn't want somebody to cherry pick and come in with a brand new car and only race one time. Drivers want it to be somebody who is going to race at least three nights of the tour and that's what we decided on that way they get a taste of the tour. We help the smaller towns and the tour just keeps growing," said John Gartner, tour director.

Gartner says Friday night will also have something called a Dirt Dominator. It will take place after the Legendary 50.

"It's a brand new concept. It's kind of like your street racers on drag racing. It's two guys verses two guys and they only go for two lays. Winner advances, the loser goes to the pits and it's winner take all thousand dollars to win," said Gartner.

This is the 29th year for the Dakota Classic Modified Tour. Kupper Chevrolet is the title sponsor of the tour this year.
