NORFOLK, Neb. (April 9, 2022) – With big money on the line, Tyler Iverson stood his ground late in the race to score the $2,000 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature win Saturday at Off Road Speedway.
A stout field of 48 cars contended in the Crown Summer Series event. Ryan Harris led early in the 30-lapper before spinning in front of the field. That incident handed the lead to Iverson, who was constantly pressured by Jesse Sobbing.
Sobbing got major runs off the top of turn two but could not get a big enough charge to get around Iverson and settled for second while Chanse Hollatz hustled to third after starting 15th. The biggest mover of the race was Minnesota driver Jeff Larson, who started dead last in the 24th position and charged all the way to ninth.
Iverson’s career seventh win in the division made him eligible to qualify for the B & B Racing Chassis All-Star Invitational. The series is presented by Herbster Angus Farms.
The first-ever IMCA Modified feature at Off Road saw veteran driver Ricky Stephan break out to the early lead before Jordan Grabouski took command.
Multiple cautions slowed the event. On the restart with 15 laps to go, Grabouski swung wide off turn four allowing Stephan to take the lead back, but three laps later Grabouski was back in front and took the cruised to a $1,000 payday.
Already Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational qualifying eligible, Grabouski was chased across the stripe by Stephan and Jared Hoefelman.
And in the 20-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main event, Off Road Speedway regular Stephanie Reynolds broke out to an early lead.
Taylor Huss took the lead on lap four and proceeded to drive to the checkered flag in his first-ever visit to Off Road. Another Off Road weekly racer, Jason Wilkinson, charged from 12th to finish second. Reynolds rounded out the podium.
