RIDGELEY, W.Va. (06/29/21) – Sometimes a little bit of luck doesn’t hurt, and such was the case for Matt Cosner on Saturday evening at Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway. Inheriting the lead late in the race, when the frontrunners tangled, Cosner led the final three circuits to claim the $3,000 winner’s check aboard his LINE-X® No. 66c Nelson Auto Sales/ R.H. Lapp Mechanical Contractors/ Rocket Chassis/ Cornett Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The victory, which came in the Tex Shaffer Memorial, marked Cosner’s second of the year.

“We definitely didn’t have the best car tonight but sometimes it is better to be lucky than good,” Cosner said. “I knew with only three laps to go that I had a great shot of holding them off, and I was able to do it. I’m very happy to get another win in our LINE-X® Rocket Chassis. Thanks to all who support the 66c.”

Saturday night found Matt Cosner in action at Hagerstown Speedway (Hagerstown, Md.), where he was making his lone start of the weekend behind the wheel of the Nelson Auto Sales No. 66c LINE-X® Late Model. After topping the speed charts in time trials, Cosner streaked to a heat race win, which positioned him third on the starting grid for the Tex Shaffer Memorial A-Main.

Inheriting the lead late in the race after the two frontrunners were collected in a tangle, Matt raced to his second win of the season, which came over Justin Weaver, Marvin Winters, Kenny Moreland, and Barry Miller. He pocketed $3,000 for the victory.
