Uehling rules Off Road IMCA Hobby Stock feature

By Randy Pospishil


NORFOLK, Neb. (May 18, 2024) – Half a car length made the difference between a W and second-place in Saturday’s IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature at Off Road Speedway.

In the closest race of the night, Uehling edged Jason Wilkinson at the flag stand by a half-car length for a win. Uehling, who started on the outside of row one, led all 15 laps with Wilkinson in pursuit the entire race. 

The pair repeatedly pulled away from the field, even following a caution with just six laps remaining, and Wilkinson increased the pressure each of the final trips around the track.

Wilkinson closed the gap coming out of turn four the last time around, then pulled alongside Uehling briefly on the backstretch but would get no closer than Uehling’s door as the cars passed the flag stand.

Pole-sitter Trevor Frisch out-dueled a number of contenders to secure third place.

In the IMCA Sunoco Late Model feature, Cory Dumpert responded to last week’s narrow defeat by bouncing back with a runaway win.

Dumpert, the five-time defending national champion who had to follow Anthony Roth across the finish line then, took the lead away from Roth two laps prior to a caution with 16 laps remaining. He led the rest of the feature by as much as the length of the straightaway.

Two laps after that same caution, Roth was forced to the back of the pack by a flat tire and began working his way back toward the front. When Beau Johnson, who had just overtaken Eric Vanosdall to move into second, suffered a flat tire of his own with five laps left, Roth inherited third place behind Vanosdall.

As the final laps ticked away Vanosdall held off Roth to maintain second. 

Cameron Wilkinson picked up his second consecutive Off Road Speedway win of the season in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars.

Wilkinson pulled even with race leader Derek Sehi five laps into the feature race after starting on the outside of row four, then established a multi-car lead while Sehi battled Kyle Wilkinson and Chad Bruns for second.

Kyle Wilkinson and Sehi finished in second- and third-place, respectively.
