ANDERSON, IN  –  For the first time since the World Stock Car Festival in 2016, Cody Coughlin found victory lane during the Mitch Smith Auto Service 125 at Anderson Speedway on Saturday night.

 

The former champ made the winning pass on lap seventy-seven, to get by Scotty Tomasik and then lead the remaining forty-eight laps. While enduring challenges, from his opponents on numerous restarts, to claim the checkered flag in the ARCA/CRA Super Series event.

 

The story of the night, throughout the one-hunded and twenty-five lap event, was the use of the front bumper. As several drivers found their way under the left rear of the opposing drivers. In an attempt to gain an edge over their competition while circling the high-banked quarter-mile bull ring.

 

Coughlin started eighth, in the tight eighteen car field, and found himself in the top five by lap twenty-six. Eventually finding his way into the second position, after Travis Braden suffered a broken sway bar, on lap sixty-eight. The Deleware, Ohio driver then proceeded to fend off the rest of the field, on multiple restarts during the remaining laps, to cross the stripe p1.
