Dover tops podium in opener for Sprint Series of Nebraska

JEFFERSON, S.D. (May 17) – His third trip to The New Raceway Park ended with Jack Dover on the top step of the podium.  After third- and second-place finishes in his first two visits to the Jefferson speedplant, Dover topped the Sprint Series of Nebraska opener on Sunday night. “We’ve had really good results every time we’ve run there,” Dover said following the IMCA Rac­eSaver Sprint Car victory. “It’s a pretty fun little track. I wish I could race there more often.”  The threat of rain disappeared before features were run. Dover started eighth, avoided getting caught up in any of the early cautions that slowed the 20-lapper and wasn’t challenged once he got to the front.  “It was a really good track come feature time,” he said. “I picked off a car about every lap, got the lead on about lap six and never looked back.”  Second went to Danny Nekolite and defending series champion Tyler Drueke was third. Complet­ing the top five were Toby Chapman and young Texan Trey Burke. Feature results – 1. [Read More]

Our first three races for the SSN Se­ries were scheduled at Eagle Raceway, I-80 Speedway and Crawford County Speedway and were all canceled due to the COVID-19 restrictions.” Hadan is also the operations manager at Eagle Raceway in Eagle, Neb.  “It’s pretty disappointing that we cannot race in Nebraska right now due to the 10 person rule so all our drivers and fans have to travel to different states just to go racing. We hope that the State of Nebraska officials let us open up soon,” she said. “I would think that they [Read More]
