WAVERLY, Ohio – Cole Duncan stole the spoils of victory during Tuesday night’s 35-lap Speed Shift TV Invitational for 410 sprint cars at Atomic Speedway.

After starting fifth and dropping back as far as sixth in the early going, Duncan raced his way up through the field and ultimately passed race-long leader Chad Kemenah for the $6,000 win with three laps to go in the main event.

From there, Duncan opened up a 1.462-second margin of victory over Kemenah, who hung on to finish second at the three-eighths-mile dirt track.

Max Stambaugh took the final spot on the podium ahead of Brinton Marvel and Bryan Nuckles.

Brandon Wimmer, two-time USAC champion Tyler Courtney, Jac Haudenschild, Danny Smith and Cale Conley completed the top 10.

USAC regulars C.J. Leary and Justin Grant – both making rare winged sprint car appearances – finished 13th and 23rd, respectively, in the 24-car field.

The finish:

Cole Duncan, Chad Kemenah, Max Stambaugh, Brinton Marvel, Bryan Nuckles, Brandon Wimmer, Tyler Courtney, Jac Haudenschild, Danny Smith, Cale Conley, Dale Blaney, Jordan Ryan, C.J. Leary, Josh Davis, Skylar Gee, Stuart Brubaker, Todd Kane, Tyler Street, Adam Cruea, Brandon Conkel, Nate Reeser, Ricky Peterson, Justin Grant, John Ivy.
