drive the car. It's fun when you are running this well, you just have to enjoy it while youcan, cause it could change the next race."

The 38-year-old Cook's victory gives him his second straight checkered flag followed last Sunday's Southern Regional Racing Series-sanctioned "Bama Bash" victory at Green Valley Speedway in Glencoe, Ala. 

  Arp and Madden started on the front row  before Madden sprinted to an early lead early with Arp and Casebolt giving chase until they reeled in the leader in lap 11 traffic. Six laps later Cook took the third spot from Casebolt and began challenging Arptil taking second just before a slowing Mike Marlar brought out a lap-20 caution. Two laps later the second and final caution appeared for John Blankenship.

Madden stayed in command at the halfway point and after catching Madden in the lap 30 traffic, Cook began peeking under Madden. Cook made the pass stick on lap 36 and worked traffic that kept both Cook and Madden on their toes. Cook fought goff Madden's challenges the final 10 laps for the victory, his first-ever at Volunteer Speedway.

43 race teams entered this year's event.
