Boen Masters NCRA Late Model Go at Mid-Nebraska

David Smith, Jr.

DONIPHAN, Neb. – May 29. Four-time series champion Kelly Boen of Henderson, Colorado came back to a familiar car, familiar surroundings and familiar end result as he took the lead early and dominated the O’Reilly/NCRA late model feature finale at Mid-Nebraska Speedway Friday night.   

The all-time division leader in feature victories started on the front row but it was fellow outside front row starter Kyle Berck of Marquette, Nebraska taking the lead as the green flag fell. Berck, the defending series champion, led the first three laps before Boen got a run underneath Berck and his Dorothy Lynch sponsored Lazer chassis in turn two to take the lead. 

From there it was all Boen as the only thing that slowed his pace was a pair of cautions for spins on lap five and seven. But from then on there was no stopping Boen as his Peterson Fluid Systems/Roadrunner Fabrication sponsored Rocket chassis went the rest of the distance unchallenged to take the half straight away victory, his second of the season. It was the first win of the season aboard the familiar #07 after driving for Broken Bow, Oklahoma car owner Terry Pannell during the first three races of the season. 

“The track was excellent tonight,” said Boen. “Kyle got me on the start and had the preferred line early. I was able to pull down to the bottom and get a little traction coming off the corner of two and got under him and was fortunate to take the lead.” 

Berck would settle for the runner up position with Gillette, Wyoming’s Eddie Kirchoff holding off a hard charging Al Humphrey to finish fourth.
