Snyder Headlines U.S. 30 Speedway Victors


COLUMBUS, Neb. – U.S. 30 Speedway added the Sprint Series of Nebraska to their Thursday night program, hosting the IMCA-sanctioned RaceSaver sprints along with three other IMCA divisions on the high-banked quarter mile.

Following normal RaceSaver procedures, a pair of draw heats moved the top five from each to a redraw to set the first five rows of their 25 lap main.

The regular RaceSaver purse of $700 to win and $250 to start was in play for the show.

Jason Danley drew outside front row and led 10 laps before traffic allowed Stuart Snyder and National point leader Tyler Drueke to catch him.

Snyder used the bottom of turn four on lap 11 to take the lead, then a cluster of cars led to a damaged frontstretch fence and the race was called.

Snyder was declared the winner.

Stock car main event action saw Mike Nichols lose power while enjoying the lead with three laps remaining, handing the win to 10th starting Dylan Smith.  A 17 car field ran the 20 lapper.

Hobby stocks drew 16 cars with a 15 lap main finishing their evening.  Last week’s winner, Spencer Galloway rolled on the backstretch on the first try to start the finale.

Jeff Ware won the 700th race for Charger Chassis by fending off two contenders over the final three laps of the 16-car hobby stock field.

Northern sport mod racing saw 20 cars on hand and Brian Osantowski used the backstretch upper line on lap eight to take the lead. He stretched his advantage and recorded the win from the ninth starting position.
