COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (Aug. 26) – Friday saw a full house at Cottage Grove Speedway as the ¼-mile clay oval hosted the final Fast Friday of 2016 and all fans through the front gate got in for free.

Eric Ashley was quick out of the box in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified main event.

Ashley paced the field until around lap 16 when he was passed for the lead. The driver to make it around him was Collen Winebarger.

Winebarger led the rest of the way to score his fifth win of 2016 at CGS. Ashley was a second followed by John Campos in third. Craig Hanson was fourth while finishing fifth was Jeff Lovell.
