NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (June 13) – Leading the lap that mattered the most was Colton Osborn in the IMCA Modified feature in front of a packed house on opening night Saturday at Lincoln County Raceway. 

Osborn started in the back row, worked his way through traffic and made the pass for the lead as the white flag was waved.

Andrew Dillenburg was the leader until relinquishing the point to Osborn in the waning laps. Dillenburg continued to stay the course and earn a runner-up finish for his efforts. Biding his time and being around for the finish was the formula for success for Ayden Steffens to shine in his first official feature at North Platte.                                                                                                                                         

Steffens raced his way to the third place finish to start off his rookie season with a podium finish after start­ing in the back of the field when the green flag dropped.

Jesse Taylor raced his way back to the front of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car field and Jamey Kennicutt took the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod checkers after motoring from row four. 

Starting up front, staying up front and being the first to the finish line was the name of the game for Allyn Myers to start his season off right with an IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock victory. Myers worked his magic around the bottom groove at North Platte.
