June 23, 2002-reenwood, NE- The full moon was out in force at Nebraska
Raceway Park. A fourteen-car accident on the green flag lap of the Late
Model feature resulted in a lot of damaged race cars, but fortunately all
drivers walked away without injury.
Only two of the fourteen involved were able to make it back out to complete
the race. The Late Model feature finished without further incident. Mike
Nanfito made it two in a row with his feature win. Steve Kosiski finished
second, followed by Jason Hobscheidt, John Hampel and Al Zeitner.
Scott Waldron used his outside front starting position to jump to the early
lead. On lap three a yellow flag came out for a single car spin. On the
restart, Waldron held off the rest of the field to capture his first win of
the season. For many his win was a reward for his outstanding sportsmanship
last weekend. Waldron gave up his car to defending Grand National Champion
Mike Wallace after Wallace's car was wrecked during the heat races. Mike
Kelley finished second after an outstanding run from 9th row starting
position. Chris Roberts was third, followed by Jeff Jenkins and Rick
Finding his way to victory lane for the second time this season, Marty
Steinbach used a great move at the start of the race to pass 5 cars in the
first lap. Marty took the lead on lap 8 with a power move on Gary Vincent.
The race went without caution until the end. Scott Anderson finished
second, followed by Mark Day, Scott Carlson and Gary Vincent.
Chris McDonald found victory lane for the third time this season. He worked
lap traffic on the bottom side of the race track, and found himself in the
lead on lap ten. He motored through the next five laps as the race leader,
and put a sizeable lead on Randy Lee Todd in second. Dave Christensen
finished third, followed by Todd Bell and Eric Hanson.
