Covington Takes ASCS Sooner/Mid-South Victory At Tri-State Speedway

Rolling into Tri-State Speedway with the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products and the Stealth Recovery ASCS Mid-South Region on Saturday, Matt Covington parked the T&L Foundry/Shark Racing Engines No. 95 in Victory Lane.

Marking the 24th time the Glenpool, Okla. driver has topped an ASCS Regional event, the night’s 25-lap affair saw Covington trading the top-stop numerous times with Blake Hahn. Leading the opening lap, Hahn would take over on Lap 2 with the Sage Fruit No. 52 out front until the pair traded the lead again on Lap 9.

Able to retake the point the following lap, Covington was able to keep pace out front the remainder of the A-Feature. Blake Hahn held on to second with Arkansas’ Tim Crawley in third. Moving through the field from ninth, Wayne Johnson grabbed fourth with Roger Crockett coming from eighth to fifth.

Ernie Ainsworth crossed sixth with Harli White seventh. Sean McClelland in eighth was trailed by Grady Chandler with Mickey Walker making up the top ten.

The next outing for the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products is slated for Friday, May 3 at Red Dirt Raceway and is presented by Terry Mattox Promotions. The Stealth Recovery ASCS Mid-South Region rolls again on Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Mississippi.
