Green picks up first Cotton Bowl IMCA Modified win

By J.M. Hallas

PAIGE, Texas (March 18) – Kevin Green took top honors in Saturday’s IMCA Modified main dedicat­ing his first Cotton Bowl win to Harvey Cox, a long-time supporter of the Green family rac­ing.

Green got the lead coming off turn two, then went green to checkers using two different lines on each end to put some distance on Eric Tomlinson at the finish.

“Mission accomplished,” exclaimed Green afterwards. “This was one mission I had this year, to get a Modified win here. We’ve run some here in the Modified and the SportMod, but never a full season. We even had a few SportMod wins, but this is our first Modified win.”

“We lost Harvey Cox over the off season, but we’re still racing for him,” Green continued. “He’d done so much for us over the years with my dad. He’ll not be forgotten.”

Mike Wagner was the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod winner while Ken Plon­sky capitalized on a late restart to top the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature.
