DICKINSON, N.D. (July 13) – Cody Laney followed the script Hunter Marriott had written the night before in winning Wednesday’s Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour main event. In front of a packed grandstand at Southwest Speedway, Laney led all 30 laps in topping the $2,200 to win feature for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds. A track tour record 90 Modifieds saw action at Dickinson. Marriott had led from start to finish Tuesday at Williston Basin Speedway and challenged Laney in the late going before settling for second at Southwest. “I knew if I could hold my line, I’d be all right,” said Laney, new to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot and a three-time winner this season in his home state of California coming into the night. “Hunter was the one who worried me … I saw his nose a couple times but I kept hitting my marks.” Laney started outside the front row and held off Lucas Schott following a pair of early restarts. Marriott settled into second on lap 11 and tried high [Read More]
