NORFOLK, Neb. (Dec. 9) – Off Road Speedway puts four IMCA divisions on the track on Saturday nights beginning next April.
The new 1/3-mile clay oval, located southeast of Norfolk, will feature IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Mach-1 Sport Compacts in weekly race programs.
Jerry Pospisil, who built and operated a go-kart track in Norfolk for more than 20 years before promoting Blackbird Bend, will be in charge of the Kevin Signor-owned facility.
Signor also owns Off Road Ranch, the adjoining motocross track.
“Other tracks around here are IMCA so it makes sense to sanction, too,” Pospisil said. “That will give drivers another place to race for IMCA points.”
An open practice session is tentatively scheduled for April 4. First IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing track points will be given April 11, with season championship night set for Sept. 4.
Off Road Speedway will be part of the Arnold Motor Supply Northern Region for Stock Cars and the Big Daddy Race Cars Northern Region for Hobby Stocks.
Three generations of the Pospisil family have been involved in go-kart racing and all own national championships.
Pospisil’s son Shannon won two track titles and the Allstar Performance Nebraska State crown in the Mach-1 Sport Compact division this year.
