CJ checkers fly for Cook, Struck

COLUMBUS JUNCTION, Iowa (June 5) – The IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars provided the fans with door to door racing the entire 20 laps of their main event Friday at CJ Speedway. 

Early in the race, a four-car pack raced for the lead before Jason Cook was able to break out of the pack and secure the top spot. Cook held off several challenges by Adam Bell to score the hard-fought win. Kirk Kinsley ran up front the entire 20 laps before settling for third.  

Steve Struck shot into the lead from his outside front row start in the Mach-1 Sport Compact fea­ture and went on to record the win. Struck led the caution-free race flag-to-flag in taking the win over Darin Smith.  

Due to the Iowa Governor easing Covid-19 restrictions on Speedway’s the CJ Speedway hosted fans for the first time in 2020 on Friday and racing action was outstanding on a perfectly prepared smooth race track.  

Racing will continue on June 12 with hot laps slated to take the green at 7:15 p.m.
