Dinsmore is spot on at Cotton Bowl

By J.M. Hallas

PAIGE, Texas (April, 9) ­– Greg Dinsmore chased down Brian Walker, used the middle groove to get for the lead near halfway and then eased away in the final laps for the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified win Saturday at Cotton Bowl Speedway.

“The car was spot on tonight,” said Dinsmore. “There’s always great competition here at Cotton Bowl. The track is always racy and gets the show over in a timely manner. I knew I had to get to do something to get to the front early.”

J.J. Jennings went wire to wire in the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod main. Once out front, Jennings put it on cruise control until challenged after a late caution by Earl In­gram and Robert Scrivner in the final laps.

What was just supposed to be a shake down run in the Kenny Merritt-owned Medieval Chassis turned into a win for P.J. Egbert in the 20-lap IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. Egbert got past early leader Kelvin Harper and then held off Charles Cosper while dicing through traffic at the fin­ish.

Wesley Warren picked up his third IMCA Hobby Stock feature win for the year in the 15-lap fea­ture. Warren beat Alexis Shad back to the line to lead lap one and then was able to build up a good advantage over the field in the final half of the race to grab the victory.
