Coop, Sterling win at Elmwood Park Speedway

By Mike Hughes

NORTON, Kan. (Aug. 9) – Travis Coop and Chad Sterling were first-time feature winners at Elmwood Park Speedway on Saturday night.

Coop had to hold off a race-long challenge from Colton Pfeifer in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature. Pfeifer stayed closed but could not make a pass and had to settle for the runner-up spot.

H.J. Colburn was third, followed by Shay Simoneau and Eric Pfeifer.

Sterling also had to work hard for his win in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Chase Conaway gave Sterling a run for his money and even led on occasion but Sterling was first to the checkers.

Point leader Dustin McClurg, Jason Davis and Eric Kinderknecht rounded out the top five.

Brian Conness returned to the winner’s circle as he captured the victory in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod main event. Troy Attwood finished second, followed by Eric Pfeifer, Pat Bedore and J.R. Ewing.

The final race of the season will take place on Saturday, Sept. 13, with the regular divisions competing.
