(February 16, 2020) Ray Cook was finally able to kick off his 2020 racing season on Saturday afternoon, February 15 and promptly put his #53 Capital racecar into victory lane at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, Tennessee! Ray clicked off the fourth fastest lap during the qualifying session for the unsanctioned program to earn the outside of the second row for the start of the 40-lap 'Winterfest' main event.

At the outset of the race, Ray moved up to the second spot and eventually grabbed the point around the lap six mark. The Brasstown, North Carolina standout then led the remainder of the feature distance to bag the $3,000 top prize ahead of Sam Seawright, Josh Putnam, David Brannon, and Casey Turman!
