Cockrum Wins Ted Horn 100
DU QUOIN -- The USAC Ted Horn 100 took center stage on the magic mile on Sunday night.
The 24 car field had no clear favorite, although Illini pride was the theme with so many drivers with state ties running.
Benton native, Shane Cockrum took the lead midway through the race, but Cockrum would lose the lead when Chris Windom made the pass to move in first place. Then with 11 laps left to go, Windom lost control and crashed.
Cockrum went on to win the race.
