off a ninth place finish at the "Show-Me 100" in Wheatland.
Mo., crashed the party at the
Tennessee Super Series $4000 To-Win at Duck River Speedway Sunday.
Cook led the field to the green for the 40 lap
event and quickly jumped out to the lead, followed by Brad Neat, Tanner English, Anthony Burroughs, and Terry English before the first caution of the night fell on lap five for the
second place car of Neat, who slowed down on the speedway for a cut down tire.

River. (Connie Putnam)
The second and final caution waved on the
lap six restart for the #12* of Tyler Landers, who cut down a
tire. When the field rolled back around for the green flag, Cook wasted no time to get the jump and stretched
out ahead of the second place car of Burroughs. The race
went green for the remainder of the 40 laps, and Cook mastered the lapped traffic as if he
were on a Sunday afternoon drive. After leading all 40 laps, Cook led Burroughs, who was followed by Terry English, Corey
Posey, and Riley Hickman.
