WEST PLAINS, Mo. — After a little bit of a snafu Friday night, Matt Covington was running on all eight cylinders Saturday as the driver of the A-Rock Materials/Lucas Oil No. 95 captured his second ASCS victory of the season.

Topping the match-up between the ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps and the ASCS Mid-South Region at Legit Speedway Park, Covington’s victory marks the first time he’s topped the podium with the Warrior Region, and the second with the Mid-South Region.

Leading all 25 revolutions, the feature went non-stop with Covington stretching his advantage to 3.450 seconds over Brandon Anderson.

Overcoming truck issues to make the trip, Ernie Ainsworth captured the final podium step with Ayrton Gennetten and Chase Randall making up the top five.
