Willamette openers go to Peery, Coffman

LEBANON, Ore. (Aug. 15) – Saturday went down in history as the first race of the 2020 season at the Willamette Speedway with drivers from all over Oregon, Washington, California and Nevada competing.

In the IMCA Modified main event, Justin Cady led early before a dizzying six lead changes. Bricen James, Travis Peery and Grey Ferrando all took turns at the front. Peery navigated his way back into the lead on lap 33 and held on for the rest of the distance.

James was second while Washington traveler Tyson Blood placed third. 

Domination was the keyword in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods. Doug Coffman set a wicked pace and was practically in his own area code over the rest of the pack.  It was Coffman’s second win of 2020. 

Kevin Williamson was the runner-up.
