Kocks is first, final leader at Cottage Grove

By Ben Deatherage

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (June 6) – Jason Kocks was the first and final leader in Saturday’s Xtreme Motors Sports IMCA Modified main event at Cottage Grove Speedway.

In the first four laps there were four different leaders. Kocks seemed to have the field covered but multiple cautions made it difficult to establish and maintain a sizable lead. Kocks lost the coveted position to Kinzer Cox on lap 19.

Unfortunately, a few moments later the two got together at the start/finish line and Cox sustained too much damage to continue. Kocks led the rest of the way to score his first win of the 2015 cam­paign.

Scott Lenz was the runner-up and Gus Cooper ended his evening in third.
