ARNOLD, Neb. A group in Arnold have given the term "seat belt check" a whole new meaning. Except this one isn't triggered by angry drivers.
On the contrary, it's a way to protect drivers competing in the Sandhills Open Road Challenge.
Aaron Olson was in charge of overseeing the pre-race inspections. This year Aaron and his crew inspected around 145 cars for the race.
Olson says the competition is intense, but the friendships between the racers makes it a fun event.
He also says the race has gotten so popular over the years that they've had to put a limit on the amount of contestants. At any given moment they have 30-50 people on a waiting list waiting for their turn.
