during the
O'Reilly Super Chevy Show presented by JEGS at Bristol Dragway,

Thunder Valley.

Cody took out Kernersville, NC racer Doug Winters in the

"Sandman" Williams of
Millington, Tennessee.  Williams is Cody's closest
rival in the championship
chase, followed by Cody's brother Zach Barklage,
who was the event's top
qualifier with a blistering 6.156 at 225.67 miles per
