GGREENWOOD, Neb. - Sept. 23. Kyle Berck passed Jason Rauen on lap nine and never looked back as he cruised to his first Lucas Oil MLRA win of the season Friday in the Cornhusker Classic at I-80 Speedway.

several solid runs in previous Lucas Oil MLRA competition this year, scoring two second place finishes and a fifth place run.

 

"This track's been good to me this year, and it certainly feels like home here. The car was really good on the bottom and the top," the Nebraska native added.

 

The initial restart was waved off when Kelly Boen and Al Humphrey made contact while coming to the green flag. Racing was intense through the field over the opening 10 laps with several drivers swapping spots and others coming through the field. Joe Kosiski brought out the only other caution on lap 10 when he broke a tie rod. The cushion built in each corner as the race progressed. Berck found it and set an unbelievable pace in the final 15 laps. Denny Eckrich finished second, and John Anderson was third.
