Dacotah Speedway Hosts 4th Annual Corral Sales Legendary 50


Mandan, ND – Dacotah Speedway is excited to announce the 4th annual Legendary 50 - presented by Corral Sales – on Friday, July 12, 2019.


“We are honored to be involved with this prestigious race since its inception and look forward to meeting all the racers and pit crews that will participate,” said Tim Helbling of Corral Sales.


The best drivers from all over the United States and Canada will travel to Dacotah Speedway but only one lucky IMCA Modified driver will drive away with $10,004, the highest cash prize for an IMCA Modified race in North Dakota.


The Legendary 50 is the finale to the Dakota Classic Modified Tour (DCMT), a grueling, six-night racing tour. Drivers who raced one of the six nights of the DCMT are eligible to compete in the 50 lap shootout.


Back by popular demand is hot lap qualifying to determine heat race line-ups versus the old-fashioned pill number draw. Fans will want to come early to check out this rare sight. Drivers will then battle in their heat race and B-main to advance to the big show.


The A-main race will feature 32 drivers who raced their way into the big show. One additional spot will be determined by presenting sponsor, Corral Sales.


When the green flag waves, drivers will start three wide for50 laps around the 3/8ths oval dirt track. Sometime between lap 25 and 35, a caution will wave for mandatory pit stops. This allows drivers and crews five minutes to make any changes they need with the exception of changing tires. The race will resume until the checker flag waves, with one lucky driver winning $10,004. The WISSOTA Street Stocks will be the support class that evening.


Defending race winner, Ricky Thorton Jr of Chandler, AZ is the only driver to win the Legendary 50. Thorton Jr won the inaugural race back in 2016 and again in 2018 as the Legendary 50 was rained out in 2017. 


If there is a threat of inclement weather, a rain date has been scheduled for Saturday, July 13th. Tickets for this thrilling event are $20 at the gate for adults. Kids 12 and under are free. Advanced, discount tickets are available at select Red Carpet Car Wash locations in Bismarck and Mandan.


Pit passes are $30 and driver registration is $150. Camping is also available at Dacotah Speedway but space is limited, reserve your spot online at https://www.dacotahspeedway.net/fans/campground.aspx.


Discounted hotel rates are also available to race fans from Dacotah Speedway’s official hotel, La Quinta of Bismarck! Just ask for the Dacotah Speedway discount when reserving your room during race season. Wake up on the bright side with every stay at La Quinta!
