STORY & RESULTS

Matt Cooper Claims Big Modified Payoff at KLMS!
(May 17, 2014) Matt Cooper charged from his outside front-row starting spot and led all the way in the 20-lap UMP Modified feature Saturday night at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway. He won $1,500, more than twice the usual $700 payoff for the open-wheel main event. He also snapped a three-race win streak by Trent Young, who started on the pole and finished second. Young had won features on May 12, 19 and 26, but skipped the fourth event of the season May 10 at the 3/8-mile dirt oval.

In other races on the program, Terry English won his second Late Model feature of the year at KLMS, Tait Davenport won the Pro (Crate) Late Model event and Mike Lentz won the Stock Car feature.


Matt Cooper Mashes the Gas at Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway

In the Modified main, Cooper and Timmy Hall, who started third behind Young, drew alongside the pole starter at the outset and raced into the top two spots coming off Turn 2. Cooper gradually drew away, maintaining a lead of about two seconds to the finish despite encountering lapped traffic in the final five laps. Bryce Jewell was third, Todd Miller fourth and Paul Miles fifth. Hill was sidelined in a lap 5 tangle with Bryan Barber, and ended up 18th in the 21-car field.

In the Late Model main, English got around pole starter Jason McBride on the second lap and pulled away to the win at his home track. Kevin Cole was third, followed by Jarryd Holshouser and Charles LaPlant.

Davenport also led from start to finish and snapped a three-race winning streak by Jeff Walston, who finished second. Jeff Glisson was third, followed by Troy English and Credence Mott.

Lentz took the lead on the next-to-last lap in a three-way fight with Ryan Humphrey and Robert Phillips, who finished second and third. Phillips led from the pole until lap 11, when Humphrey nosed ahead. The three drivers continued to duel before Lentz pulled away on lap 14. Mike Watson and Michael Hendrickson rounded out the top five.
