LEWISBURG, Tenn. (Feb. 18, 2024) – Other than the fact he didn’t win, Cody Sisson was fuzzy on the details of his finish the only other time he raced at Duck River Raceway Park, eight years ago.

Odds are that he’ll remember everything about his Sunday showing there.

Sisson dominated the second half of the 30-lapper for Stealth Racing IMCA STARS Mod Lites in collecting the $3,000 Winterfest checkers.

“It’s a career-best payday for us,” said Sisson, a nine-year veteran of the class and from Talbott, a 3-1/2 hour hoof to the east, “and we’ve worked hard for it.”

On board the RB Motorsports car out of Steubenville, Ohio, for the fourth season, Sisson started the Tennessee Mod Lite Racing Association main event from fourth, took over third early on and then moved to second following a lap six restart.

He passed for the lead on lap 11 and was never challenged.

“We ran the last half of the race in lapped traffic,” he said, “and had about a straightaway lead toward the end.”

Logan Hickerson and Jaedon McDowell were next across the stripe as home state drivers filled the podium. R.J. Gonzales and Jon Padilla, who’d topped Saturday’s $1,000 to win feature, completed the top five.

Mod Lite drivers from California, Illinois, Kentucky and New York, as well as Tennessee, filled the Sunday feature field.
