The competition for top honors was heated in all divisions Saturday as the racers stepped forward with their assault on the loud pedal to earn a trip to the winners circle during the IMCA races held at Lincoln County Raceway.

In the Modified Feature, North Platte’s Andrew Dillenburg ran away and hid to notch the IMCA victory in fine fashion. Jeremy Herbst had mechanical issues in the early going and was forced to settle for runner-up honors.

There were five lead changes in the IMCA Northern Sport Mod feature with Terry Dressel of North Platte garnering top honors and a trip to the winners circle after leading the final six laps.

Finishing in the runner-up position was Troy Douglas of North Platte after leading three laps early in the feature and then holding the lead until he was passed by Dressel on lap 13 of the main event.

Showing great consistency was Jeremy Halouska of North Platte in running the low line and grabbing a podium finish in third place. Rounding out your top five finishers in the Northern Sport Mod divison was Bryan Herrick of Curtis and Brandon Poessnecker of Atkinson, Nebraska in fourth and fifth overall.

Stock cars

Putting on a dominating performance was Casey Werkmeister of Maywood. Werkmeister took the lead on lap two of the IMCA Stock Car Feature and never looked back. Werkmeister was on cruise control, winning by nearly a full straight away.

Leading lap one was Mikey Dancer of North Platte. Dancer stayed up on the wheel with a stellar second place performance.

With his best drive to date of the 2013 season, Bob Hoing of Overton was third overall with a dazzling display of driving. Dan Eller of North Platte and Lexington’s Darin Racek were fourth and fifth overall in the Feature.

Hobby Stocks

Leading from the start to the finish was IMCA Hobby Stock pilot Brady Weinman of Arnold. Challenging Weinman for the point, Austin Davis ran out of laps to work into the lead and was forced to finish second overall. Loomis' Chuck Ledbetter bobbled early and recovered in fine fashion in third place. It was nearly a lucky sevens gathering with Tyson Canas of Cozad and Scott Gibson of North Platte crossing the finish line in fourth and fifth.

Sport Compacts

Making a breakthrough debut at Lincoln County Raceway was Farnam’s David Earhart, who earned the IMCA Sport Compact Feature victory. Prior to the feature, Earhart won the heat race for the four-cylinder hot rods. Tara Gaughenbaugh of North Platte was second overall in her Dodge Neon. Hershey’s Alex Fletcher and Gothenburg’s Andrew McClellen were third and fourth overall on Saturday in North Platte.
