NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (May 6) – Timing is everything and for the frontrunners who claimed the checkered flags, their timing punched their ticket to the winner’s circle at Lincoln County Raceway on Saturday.
Spotlighted for their drives to victory were: Brandon Clough, Dillon Schultz, Kyle Werkmeister; Brady Weinman and Tom Baumgardner.
Starting on the outside of the front row, it didn’t take long for Clough to rocket into the lead, set a blistering pace all 20 laps and claim the win in the IMCA Modified feature. Clough held off the hard-charging Colton Osborn in the waning laps.
Leading the laps that mattered the most for the second time this season, Schultz earned the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory after starting in the fifth row and leading the final two laps.
Weathering the storm would be an understatement when describing what Werkmeister had to deal with during the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Werkmeister started on the front row and held off all challenges to claim the checkered flags.
Putting on a sensational performance, Weinman of Arnold was the winner in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Weinman dealt with traffic and led the final five laps.
Starting up front and staying up front throughout, Baumgardner was the victor in the Mach-1 Sport Compact feature.
