NORFOLK, Neb. (May 7) – All four of the divisions getting the Summer Storm Dirt Series competi­tion saw the eventual race winner pull away from the pack Saturday at Off Road Speedway.

Kyle Prauner pulled away to secure the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod win, his second of the season at Norfolk. Ultimately, Dylan Pospisil won what became a three-car race for the runner-up spot, with Nelson Vollbrecht getting third ahead of Troy Bruns.

Another runaway winner, Ron Pettitt, needed 10 laps to get to the front in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car race and then put plenty of distance between himself and second-place finisher John Had­cock during the final six laps. Chasing Hadcock to the finish line was Chad Bruns.

Tejay Mielke powered his way to a convincing victory in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature, his second in three nights of racing at Off Road Speedway, while Jeremy Hoskinson established a decisive second-place finish ahead of Tiffany Bittner.

National points leader Ramsey Meyer won the Mach-1 Sport Compact feature for the second time this season, finishing ahead of Lance Mielke and Brooke Fluckiger.
