(Photo courtesy of Jacob Olmstead)OVERTON, Neb. – Jacob Olmstead proved up to the challenge in a second IMCA division this season.Olmstead earned national Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod rookie of the year honors, winning 10 of his 43 starts and the track title at Lexington Raceway.“We started strong, won a feature, wrecked a car and had some bad luck,” the Overton, Neb., driver summarized. “I got to run with guys I grew up watching and kept racing hard locally as many nights as we could.”Third in national point standings for the Hobby Stocks in 2015 – the year his brother Zach was the top rookie in that class – Olmstead ran an abbreviated 2016 season before selling his car and crewing full-time.“I wanted something different. I wanted a new challenge, so I bought the car that Tyler Frye had driven to the national championship and ran that a couple times after the point season,” he ex­plained. “Our goal in 2017 was to run for national rookie. I wanted to get some seat time and experi­ence so I could look halfway like I knew what I was doing.”Career win number one in the class came in his seventh start, at Boone County Raceway on May 5.“I told my dad my goal this season was to win one feature. It has always been my dream to win a SportMod feature,” Olmstead said. “I was watching the laps count down and thinking Just throw the checkers! I was speechless for hours after I won. It was a pretty crazy night.”Olmstead had that car figured out before a late June wreck, also at Albion. He bought another BMS car, which had sat outside for four years, for the frame, swapped parts and promptly won three straight starts.His 10th and final win of the season came on Aug. 20 … two days before he and wife Jenna celebrated the birth of their first child, son Owen.Starts-43                        Wins-10                          Additional Top Fives-13HIS CREW: Wife Jenna, parents Troy and Gina, brothers Zach and Morgan, sister Mallory, Kellin Myers, Trevor Myers, the Frye family and the Murray family.HIS SPONSORS: South Central Feeders and Harmon Motorsports, both of Arapahoe; Bruner Frank Attorneys at Law of Kearney; the Myers family of Axtell; Weinman Farms of Arnold; EQ Cylinder Heads of Las Vegas, Nev.; BSB Manufacturing of Wellington, Kan.; Tin Man Bodies of Belleville, Kan.; and Ultimate Machine of Phillipsburg, Kan.last_img read more

Wheeled All-Terrain Vehicles May Now Be Driven on City of Tenino…

first_imgFacebook1.5kTweet0Pin0Submitted by City of TeninoThe Tenino City Council has just authorized the use of properly licensed and equipped Wheeled All-Terrain Vehicles (WATV’s) on City Streets as authorized by State Law.The new Ordinance will amend the Tenino Municipal Code by adding a new section that lays out the requirements that each WATV must meet before it may be legally operated on City streets, as well as the conditions and restrictions that must be observed while being so operated.Mayor Wayne Fournier first proposed the idea in late 2018.  “I’ve seen this done in other cities and thought it would be a good option for our residents,” he said.  “Many people use theirs to do yard work and whatnot, and it would be very convenient.”Tenino Police Chief Bob Swain offered that the Tenino Police Department had one and “now that it can be operated legally on the City’s streets, you’ll be seeing a lot more of it!”Although WATV’s will be legal on the City’s streets, they remain prohibited in the City Park without a Special Events Permit and operators must be age 18 or over, unless they are being used under the authority or direction of an appropriate agency that engages in emergency management or a Law Enforcement Agency.You can read the full text of the Ordinance by visiting the City’s website, or by visiting City Hall.  For more information, you may contact the City Clerk at (360) 264-2368.last_img read more
