Put me in coach: Rules of the Game

July 11, 2013

When I attended the IMCA Stockcar races this past weekend (see C1), I was informed of a very odd rule that, to my knowledge, doesn’t exist in any other racing league.
In the rule book, there is a rule called the claim rule. For example, since Brady Weinman took home the victory, say the guy who finished last didn’t like Weinman and decided he wanted to claim his engine.

July 11, 2013

Life is better in the fast lane.
Especially when you finish 1st.
That’s exactly what Brady Weinman of Arnold managed to do July 6 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in North Platte.
Weinman races in the International Motor Contest Association (IMCA) Stock Car Hobby Division on a weekly basis.
The point system is broken down by tracks. Different racers can be ranked different in points standings at different tracks.
At Lincoln County fairgrounds, Weinman sits in 5th place with 176 points and is 5th in McCook as well with 103 points.

Museum hosts grand opening this weekend

July 11, 2013

For as long as he can remember, Steve Sommer has loved collecting rocks and fossils.
“I use to haul them in, and my mom hauled them out,” he laughs.
Along with his life-long interest in fossils, Sommer has long fostered the desire to open a museum. That dream has finally come true.
The Bone Yard Creation Museum will host its grand opening this weekend, though the museum actually opened to the public May 15. Getting to this point has been a long process, involving lots of hard work and sweat and lots of help, Sommer says.
