Bell, VanDusen ring up CJ Speedway wins

COLUMBUS JUNCTION, Iowa (May 6) – CJ Speedway got back to action on Friday and Adam Bell scored the win in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature while Cody VanDusen topped the field in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.

Dane Fenton and Bell made up the front row for the Stock Car start. Bell edged Fenton at the line to lead lap one with Tad Payne and John Oliver Jr. battling for third. A couple laps later, Oliver moved into the runner-spot and pressured Bell for the lead.

Oliver tried to get under Bell until midway through the race when he pulled off with mechanical troubles. This moved Kirk Kinsley, who recovered from a first-lap crash, to second spot. Kinsley tried everything to get the lead away from Bell, but Bell was able to hold him off to pick up his first win of the season at the track.

Kinsley settled for second and Payne was third.

VanDusen and John Whalen led the field to the green flag in the Sport Compact feature. VanDusen set the pace out front while Darin Smith, who started eighth, was working his way up.

Despite a late-race restart, VanDusen was able to hold off Smith to capture his first win of the sea­son at the track. Smith was second and Bill Whalen Jr. was third.
