The STLMS rolled into Cochran Motor Speedway Saturday night and the large crowd on hand witnessed a great show. The track conditions were near perfect which provided two,three, and at one point four wide racing. The night began with Home Furniture and mattress qualifying. Cole Exum set the fast time and picked up the $100 award. Up next was the 40 lap main event and Cole Exum and Rhett Carter led the talented field of drivers to the g...reen flag. When the green flag waved Exum and Carter battled side by side for the lead as several other drivers began moving through the field. Carter took the lead as Exum faded to fifth and Keith Edge, Larry Harrod, and William Thomas began to attempt to chase down Carter. The first caution waved on lap 22 and on the restart Carters night would come to an end as the result of a driveshaft issue. After Carter was out the race restarted and Keith Edge took the lead and held on to pick up the win. Cole Exum drove his way back to the front and to within a couple of car lengths of Edge and wound up second, William Thomas worked his way up through the field and was third, Larry Harrod, and Russ Ogletree rounded out the top five. This was The first STLMS career win for Keith Edge. William Thomas, Larry Harrod, and Russ Ogletree also earned their career best finishes with the STLMS. We want to sincerely thank the everyone for your support. Our next event is on May 7th at North Florida Speedway.
