LEXINGTON, Neb. (Aug. 23) – The racing was for all the marbles as Dawson County Raceway hosted Championship Night on the high banks at Lexington on Sunday evening.
Finishing their 2015 season with trips to the winner’s circle were Charley Brown, Josh Leonard, Mike Nichols and Jacob Olmstead.
Brown drove to the point on the fourth lap and never looked back to capture the victory in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature. Brown powered past early leader Mike Densberger and cruised to the win. Working his way through the traffic, Jeremy Herbst scored a runner-up finish.
Leaving no doubt while driving away from the field, Mike Nichols sailed to the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car checkers. Nichols pulled away after every restart as he secured the victory. Kyle Clough went from fourth to second during the final lap to earn the runner-up honors.
Going to the high side and riding the cushion for all that it was worth paid off for Josh Leonard. Leonard started on the outside of row one and never looked back en route to the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory. Leonard worked the top and bottom of the track through traffic to hold onto the lead throughout. Second went to Jamey Kennicutt.
Leading from the beginning to the very end was Jacob Olmstead in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Staying in contention throughout the main event and being rewarded with a runner-up finish was Kyle Bond.
