NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (May 4) – Grabbing the lead while working through lapped traffic, Tanner Jones won the dash to the finish in the Herrick Auto & Marine IMCA Hobby Stock feature Saturday at Lincoln County Raceway.

Jones started in the third row, worked his way into contention and then made the right choices through traffic to garner the lead for the final four laps and a trip to the winner’s circle. 

Leading the way up to relinquishing the point position to Jones was Nate Refior, who lost momentum and needed minor repairs after the lap 11 incident with traffic.

David Murray Jr. added to his IMCA-leading total with the Maxwell Offroad Center Modified victory and Casey Woken dominated in the Knucklehead Garage IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. 

Jamey Kennicutt drove to the lead as the white flag was waved and captured the North Platte Buick GMC IMCA Northern SportMod victory. Getting the early lead, staying in the lead and never looking back was the winning formula for Quincy Eggleston in the D & S Automotive IMCA Sport Compact feature.
