What won the race: Jason Covert of York Haven, Pa., made the winning pass coming to the white flag Sunday at rain-plagued Potomac Speedway to earn a $3,800 victory in the inaugural Huey Wilcoxon Memorial. Covert took the checkers ahead of J.T. Spence of Winchester, Va., and Kenny Pettyjohn of Millsboro, Del., who'd won the weekend's two previous Trick Shot Three State Flyers events.
Quotable: "I'm so lucky to drive for such a great team," said Covert. "This win tonight and championship are a direct result of their hard work. I get the easy part driving."
Key notes: Covert has a series-leading 19 career victories. ... He has four victories overall this season at Potomac and clinched the track championship. ... It started raining after the conclusion of the Late Model heats, and after track-drying efforts began, it started raining again. Officials went back to work when the rain halted for the second time and action resumed before 1 a.m. ... Pettyjohn entered the third series event of the weekend after victories at Bedford (Pa.) Speedway and Winchester (Va.) Speedway. ... Potomac's inaugural Huey Wilcoxon Memorial Rumble on the River paid tribute to the late chassis specialist who operated MasterSbilt by Huey. ... Wilcoxon died in an April automobile accident after apparently suffering a heart attack while heading home from an event at Potomac. ... Three Mules Welding Supply added another $300 to the winner's purse, boosting it to $3,800.
