For attending race fans, Sunday night was a double treat of high-speed racing action at the Boone County Raceway in Albion.
For Kyle Berck, it was the continuation of a recent hot streak and a history of dominance at the local fairgrounds race track.
The Nebraska Super Late Model Racing Series and Nebraska 360 Sprints both visited Albion Sunday in conjunction with the annual Boone County Fair.
Large fields of competitors from all around Nebraska and neighboring states turned out for both series, but the SLMR prize was won by a driver and car area fans are very familiar with.
Kyle Berck of Marquette powered his #14 from the second starting position to victory in the Super Late Model Feature, collecting the $1,000 winner’s purse with his second victory of the weekend.
Berck, who captured the National Championship Racing Association Late Model feature and weekly modified event at McCool Junction Saturday, has now won the SLMR tour’s last three events and, with Sunday’s win, has taken five of the last six series events held at the Boone County Raceway.
Sunday wasn’t a bad night for Norfolk driver Tad Pospisil either. Pospisil, piloting the #04, finished runner-up to Berck and left Albion with a 26-point lead over the Marquette racer in the SLMR series point race.
The Nebraska 360 Sprint Series brought its own brand of racing entertainment to the Boone County Raceway Sunday, with some of the fastest speeds fans will see at the fairgrounds oval.
Following heat races, during which Tyler Drueke of Eagle won the feature pole position, Springfield’s Jack Dover manuevered from the fourth starting position to claim victory in the main event and earn the 150,000 series points that came with it.
Jason Martin of Lincoln was runner-up in the feature race, followed by Billy Alley of Bennett, Wisner’s Seth Brahmer and Drueke in the top five.
