Fast track, fast cars at Off Road Speedway

NORFOLK, Neb. (May 21) – Off Road Speedway featured a dry slick track Saturday night and drivers took full advantage.

The most competitive race of the night belonged to the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks where two hometown drivers at the top of the Off Road Speedway’s standings, point leader TeJay Mielke and Jeremy Hoskinson, dueled for the lead during final seven laps, often side-by-side, before Mielke eked out a win by a matter of inches at the checkered flag.

Ironically, Mielke had been second last week in a similar finish after being edged at the line by Derek Husted.

“The division is real tough with great drivers, This was a very clean, competitive race,” Mielke said. “I just happened to have the ‘long fender’ on this week after losing last week. The track was pretty nice tonight, slick, smooth.”

Hoskinson’s runner-up spot was his fourth top five finish in five nights of racing at the Off Road Speedway. Nate DeSive was third.

National point leader Ramsey Meyer won the division’s main event for the third time this season at Norfolk. Mark Benedict finished second, with Lance Mielke taking third.

Hans Houfek recorded his first IMCA Sunoco Stock Car win of the season at Off Road Speedway, leading all 15 laps on the way to the finish line. Shawn Primrose and Chad Bruns finished in se­cond and third, respectively.

Justin Addison picked up his first Off Road Speedway win of 2016 in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods. He outran Colby Langenberg and Nelson Vollbrecht.
