SALDANA PLANS TO STAND TALL AT BOOT HILL SHOWDOWN DOUBLEHEADER
DODGE CITY, Kan. (July 4, 2013) – Five-time Boot Hill Showdown winner Joey Saldana will be looking to put another notch in the win column when the World of Outlaws stops in Dodge City July 5-6 for a Showdown doubleheader.
It makes perfect sense that Dodge City, a town well-known for famous and infamous gunfighters like Doc Holliday and lawmen like Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson, would host the most famous and infamous World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car drivers for a four- wheeled test of the best on dirt. These Outlaws don’t depend on their quick draws to defeat their competitors, but they do depend on quick times, and like the gunfighters of old, they engage in passionate fights on the dirt.
Saldana likes the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park. It fits his driving style. He won the Boot Hill doubleheader in 2009 and also won on this track in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
“We have a good race car and we have a strong performance to build off of,” said the Brownsburg Bullet. “If we can get the consistency down, we can reel in some wins and start to climb the point ladder.
“We are currently sixth in Outlaws point standings, but we have been as high as second. I know this team is capable and Dan Motter (team owner) has given us
everything we need to be competitive.
“We’ve been the bridesmaid three times this year. We’re looking for victory lane this time around. That’s the goal. That’s the plan.”
