Matt Cosner takes the checkers for his $3,000 victory
What won the race: Pole-starting Matt Cosner of Ridgeley, W.Va., turned back a late challenge from Mason Zeigler of Chalk Hill, Pa., to claim Sunday’s 30-lap King of the Knob feature at Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex, earning $3,000 for the first Ultimate Northeast Super Late Model Series victory of his career. The high-running Cosner lead every lap from the front row, but had to survive a hard-charging Zeigler in the closing laps. Zeigler threw a slider at Cosner in turn three as the leaders completed lap 29, but Cosner was able to pull ahead off the corner coming to the white flag and held on for the victory.
Quotable: "The car was really good. I drove like crap the last 10 laps and knew my gap was getting smaller," Cosner said. "I saw Mason's nose there with two (laps) to go, but luckily, that lapped car, I was able to slide (past) him which left me some room."
