Lincoln County checkers fly for Osborn

By Kelly Ninas

NORTH PLATE, Neb. (April 22) – Driving fast and furiously and finishing strong on a well manicured dirt track were the challengers seeking a trip to the winners circle at Lincoln County Raceway on Saturday evening. Making that final turn into the winners circle were Colton Osborn, Tony Schultz, Kyle Clough, Luke Wassom and Andrew Baumgardner.

Wasting no time at all to get the lead, Osborn drove to the point on the fourth lap and never looked back to power his hot rod to the victory in the IMCA Modified feature.

Schultz and his son Dillon swapped the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod lead multiple times before Schultz gained the spot for good with two laps to go.

Grabbing the lead on the seventh lap and working through traffic the best was the Clough in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature.

For the second straight night, Wassom put on an awesome performance to win the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Wassom started on the outside of the third row and took the lead during the ninth circuit.

Continuing to rule the Mach-1 Sport Compact roost was Baumgardner for the second straight outing at his hometown track.
