By J.M. Hallas

PAIGE, Texas (April 26) – Former national champion P.J. Egbert added another win to his impressive resume, grabbing the 20-lap IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified victory Saturday at Cotton Bowl Speedway.

Egbert, who charged from his row five starting spot, took over the point from Chase Glick near halfway, then held off Brad Smith in latter stages to get his first win of the season.

Whether driving his own car or the Skip Gray-owned Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod, J.J. Jennings has Cotton Bowl Speedway figured out.

He gave the rest of the 24-car field all it could handle after getting past Jarrett Roberts, who lead the first few circuits. Once out front Jennings easily outran the competition on every restart building nearly a full straightaway advantage over Kevin Green, Talon Minten and Don Painter at the finish.

Veteran IMCA Sunoco Stock Car competitor Jason Batt scored yet another victory, this one with a twist. Saturday, Batt was driving his wife Robin’s, car after blowing the motor in his own ride Friday night in Waco.

Batt got by early leader Jeff Bauser before the one-third point of the 15-lap event. Then he stretched out his advantage while David Goode Sr., Bauser and Nic Priem battled for second, at one time going three-wide.

A.J. Dancer made easy work of the 15-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature, jumping into the lead on lap one and never looking back. At the checkers it was Dancer sweeping the IMCA Hobby Stock night over Matthew Bice and Trevor Hudson.

Wade Jones prevailed in round one of the Swenson Racing Products South Texas Street Stock Shootout. Bryan Meredith scored another win for the year taking the 15-lap CBS stock car feature.
