Covington Claims ASCS Bragging Rights


MESQUITE, TEXAS – Matt Covington capitalized on the mid-race misfortune of Danny Jennings and Zach Chappell to win the battle between the ASCS Lone Star and ASCS Sooner Regions at Devil’s Bowl Speedway Saturday.

Jennings led the 24 car field to the start of the 25 lap main event and took command following a brief caution period for Logan Payne’s injured mount.

Chappell had shot through the field from his 12th place starting spot and had begun to pressure Jennings until contact between the leading pair relegated both Sooner State pilots to an early exit.

Covington inherited the point and held off Joe Wood, Jr., creating a one-two finish for the defending ASCS regional champions. Kevin Ramey finished and started with show position honors.

A perennial warrior on the ASCS circuit, Travis Rilat advanced seven positions to finish fourth, with Michelle Decker earning her first top five finish of the season after starting 13th.
