PROCTOR — Brandon Copp of Brule ended the weekend in style by winning the King on the Hill 40-lap Modified feature as part of the Advantage RV Modified Tour stop Sunday, June 13, at Halvor Lines Speedway in Proctor.

Copp had to settle for second to Grand Rapids’ Johnny Broking just two days early when the tour stopped at Gondik Law Speedway in Superior.

At Proctor, he made it crystal clear the only race Sunday would be for second as he overcame cautions and restarts by dominating time and again in earning the clean sweep by also winning his heat.

Shane Sabraski and Broking finished second and third, respectively, while Evan Checkalski took his second career feature by winning in Midwest Modifieds.

Cory Jorgensen (Pure Stocks) and A.J. House (Hornets) also earned clean sweeps on the night.


The other winners Friday in Superior included Sabraski in Super Stocks, Ryan Savoy in Midwest Modifieds, Jorgensen again in Pure Stocks and Justin Schelitzche in Hornets.
