KOKOMO, Ind. – Jerry Coons Jr. earned his sixth sprint-car victory of the 2013 season Friday night at Kokomo Speedway during the Kokomo Klash VII.

Coons started second and grabbed the lead early, but he had to survive a battle with veteran sprint-car ace Dave Darland in the closing laps. Darland charged from 10th on the grid to challenge Coons for the lead, but couldn’t get the job done in the closing laps as Coons held on to win.

Darland settled for second ahead of Jon Stanbrough in third.

Shane Cottle captured the companion midget feature in dominant fashion.
