Car group plans stop in Imperial in June

    This summer will be the 26th year for Tour Nebraska, a car tour of the state sponsored by The Nebraska Rod and Custom Association (NRCA).
    Tour Nebraska is open to all four-wheel vehicles that are 30 years or older.
    The host city for this two-day ride this year is North Platte.
    The drivers will make a stop in Imperial on Sunday, June 3.
    Because of so much past interest, there is a limit of 400 drivers.
    The NRCA already met that 400-car limit on March 29. If interested, registrations will still be accepted and placed on a wait list.
    Local car club Car Nutz, which has been around for almost 15 years, will be hosting the drivers for a morning break.
    Doug Reinke, of Car Nutz, will not be driving in the event but will be involved.
    “We’re just helping them out since they’re coming through,” he said.
    The BRAN bike tour is scheduled to have an overnight stay in Imperial on the same day. The cars will go south from North Platte via Highway 83, while BRAN will start in Ogallala and travel south on Highway 61 into Imperial.
    The only place there will be some possible congestion is on Highway 61 from Grant to Imperial.
    “It’s (roughly) the same route and they are aware of it,” Reinke said.
