Cooney is lightning fast in shortened Stuart show

By Josh Reynolds

STUART, Iowa (June 1) –Cody Cleghorn and Shannon Anderson won the make-up features from the Ron Little Memorial a week ago, and Todd Cooney won a shortened IMCA Late Model feature before the weather took over again Sunday at Stuart Speedway.

Cleghorn led all the way to pick up the Mach-1 Sport win. Anderson took charge on lap six of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main and kept Austin Luellen at bay to the checkers.

As the skies turned darker to the west and the heat races came to an end, the decision was made to move the IMCA Late Models up to the first feature with Randy Faux and Paul Conrad drawing the front row.

Cooney flew into the lead on lap one with Faux and Conrad following in his tracks. Cooney led through two cautions, and as yet another one flew and lightning was in the western sky, the decision came to end the race, and the program, on lap 14.

Cooney was declared the winner with Randy Foote second, Charlie McKenna third, Conrad fourth and Faux fifth.
