Ashley completes sweep at Cottage Grove

By Ben Deatherage

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (April 18) – Jimmy Owen led most of the main event but couldn’t prevent Saturday’s Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod sweep at Cottage Grove Speedway by Gene Ashley.

Owen kept his ride out in front for the majority of the feature but on lap 11 Ashley took over and began to pull away.

It became a clean sweep for Ashley as he also collected the quick time award and trophy dash and heat race wins.

Owen and Jayson Nelson completed the top three.
