COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (April 4) – Jesse Williamson was the $1,100 IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified feature winner in front of a full house on opening night Saturday at Cottage Grove Speedway.
Hometown chauffeur Curtis Towns seized the lead after two cautions on the initial start. Towns set a wicked pace before he was overtaken on lap eight by Williamson.
Williamson wasted no time extending his lead and had no trouble working his way through lapped traffic as well as the race progressed.
He’d take the checkers in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier ahead of Braedon Hand, Mark Wauge, Towns and Collen Winebarger.
Additional purse money was contributed by Crocker’s Cars.
