By Ben Deatherage

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (June 13) – In the right place at the right time, Jimmy Owen was the winner of Saturday’s Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature at Cottage Grove Speedway.

Gene Ashley seemed to have the car to beat but experienced mechanical problems that took him out of the race.

Hometown chauffeur Owen inherited the lead and went on to win his first career CGS race in front of the full house.
