Cooper Claims Big Modified Payoff at KLMS!
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.

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.
