Jason Covert (72) battles J.T. Spence (91) at Potomac
What won the race: Earning his first victory for new car owners, Jason Covert of York Haven, Pa., beat fellow front-row starter Kenny Moreland at the outset, then kept Stevie Long's late-race charge in check to lead all 35 laps.
Quotable: "This win is about all the people who gave me this opportunity." Covert said. "Pete, Roland, Lisa and all the people on this team gave me a shot to drive their car this season and I'm so proud to be able to get my first win for them here at their home track."
Key notes: Jason Covert got his first victory since leaving the shuttered Barry Klinedinst No. 43a team where he thrived for seven seasons. ... He notched his first Potomac victory. ... Runner-up Stevie Long broke free from a battle for second with Kenny Moreland and Glenn Elliott and tried to track down winner Jason Covert in the final laps. ... "The bottom was the place to be tonight." Covert said. "the top was real dirty and I knew if we could hold the bottom, we'd have a shot to win, but I knew Stevie was back there towards the end and we were able to hold him off." . ... Jeff Pilkerton won the 20-lap Crate Late Model feature over Ben Bowie.
Winner's sponsors: Covert's Rocket Chassis is owned by Pete Cameron and Roland Mann and sponsored by Trick Shot Penetrating Lubricant, Phi Tech Solutions, Mann Automotive and Cameron Construction.
