By Kelly Ninas

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (Aug. 29) – Scoring rave reviews for their performance on the high banks at Lincoln County Raceway were Colton Osborn, Chad Dolan, Casey Werkmeister, Jacob Olmstead and Jordan Biere.

All punched their tickets to the IMCA winner’s circle on Saturday evening.

Grabbing the front spot early while the track was still very tacky was Osborn as he led from the fourth lap to the finish of the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature. Charley Brown was the runner-up and early leader Jeremy Herbst was third.

Finding the right set-up to start fast and finish strong was Dolan, as he led the final 10 laps to take the checkered flag in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main. Dolan passed eventual runner-up Jamey Kennicutt for the lead on the ninth circuit. Crossing the line in third was Zach Schultz.

Putting on a dominating display, Werkmeister was the victor in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Werkmeister led from the drop of the green to the checkers. Kyle Clough was second and Kyle Werkmeister stayed among the pack to earn the show position finish.

The racing action was heated during the early laps of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature until Olmstead snared the lead on the fifth lap, then ran away and hid to cruise to the victory. Brady Weinman came from the back after missing the start of the race to earn second place honors follow­ing an extended caution flag break before a lap was completed. Third went to Kyle Bond.

Biere led all 12 laps of the Mach-1 Sport Compact main event. Erik Nelson was right on his back bumper for much of the feature to earn runner-up accolades. Blake Fletcher finished third.
