There was a caution on lap 37 which turned out to be a break for Cook as it cleared out the cars in front of him for the restart. The green flag restart only lasted two laps. Racer Don O’Neal slowed the track down with a flat tire and brought out the third and final caution of the night.

After the final restart, Cook held his lead over Dan Schliper and kept a three-car length lead with ten laps to go. With five laps remaining, Schlieper started to cut down Cook’s lead.

Schlieper was within two car lengths of Cook but he could not get by and Cook took the win in his Danny Dishman and Ronald Ivey owned MasterSbilt Monte Carlo SS with a Race Engine Design Motor and K&N filters. “Our K&N filters protect our engines at every race and give us extra horsepower and great filtration,” said Cook. “I’ve used K&N products for a decade and would not use anything else. I also use K&N on my personal vehicles and in my race shop.”

Cook currently stands sixth in Lucas Oil Series points after 39 events.
