O’Neil bests Thornton in Cocopah classic as Morris tops Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods

first_imgO’Neil made a bold three-wide pass on the high side to drive from fourth to second in the first set of corners, then powered around the outside of Kollin Hibdon to lead lap one. Thornton, Hibdon, R.C. Whitwell and Tom Berry Jr. rounded out the top five.  Tim Gonska led the final 16 circuits of the Hobby Stock feature to win by 1.5 seconds over Scott Tenney.  Canadian driver Brendon LaBatte came from seventh to claim the Stock Car victory in dramatic fashion. LaBatte was in third as he crossed under the white flag but passed Gene Henrie for second going down the backstretch before powering around Steffan Carey to win the feature in a drag race to the checkers.  Ricky Thornton Jr. moved his way up to the second spot from the fifth starting position by lap four and quickly set his sights on O’Neil. Thornton searched every inch of the oval be­fore taking command of the lead on lap 15.  “I thought once he got by me it was over. Usually when that guy gets to the lead there is no catching him,” O’Neil said. “I just threw a Hail Mary at it and started running the heck out of the car and it ended up working out.” Feature Results  Northern SportMods – 1. Miles Morris; 2. Cody Thompson; 3. Chris Toth; 4. Wayne Dot­son; 5. Ron Schreiner; 6. Jimmy Davy; 7. Taylor Kuehl; 8. Shelby Frye; 9. Manny Baldiviez; 10. Brian Carey; 11. Kyle Salo; 12.

Gumke competed at Cocopah the prior weekend.  Stock Cars – 1. Brendon LaBatte; 2. Steffan Carey; 3. Gene Henrie; 4. Loren DeAr­mond; 5. Troy Jerovetz; 6. Cody Center; 7. Aaron Spangler; 8.

Jeffrey Callis; 11. Jim Robinson; 12. Jason Duggins.  O’Neil quickly mounted another charge as the lead duo sliced their way through slower traffic.
