NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (July 14) – Leading the laps that mattered most was Jay Steffens in Saturday’s IMCA Modified main event at Lincoln County Raceway.

Steffens stayed within striking distance of leader Dave Pedersen, who paced the first 13 laps. Steffens drove around the outside of Pedersen to take the lead and the win.

Fifth row starter Jeff Whiting was the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner and Tanner Clough prevailed in a tough battle for top IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock honors.

Jamey Kennicutt led from the second lap to the checkers in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod headliner while Daryl Cauffman ruled the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
