COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. (April 27) – Derik Young was the Mohawk Metal IMCA Modified winner Saturday, on night two of Cottage Grove Speedway’s season-opening Spring Fling. 

Ray Bloom had a great start and paced the field the first three laps before being overtaken by Young.  

Young had no issues once in front of the pack as the only things slowing him down were four cautions. Despite the stoppages, Young maintained the top place position to achieve his first win of the season. 

Curtis Towns was yet again the runner-up while B.J. Wild posted a third-place finish. 

In Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod action it was all about Matt Sanders.  The Brookings ace held onto the coveted top spot the entire race despite five cautions and a handful of challenges. 

Buddy McHargue was second while grabbing third was the previous night’s winner Jorddon Braaten.
