Matt Covington Tops ASCS Warrior/Mid-South Challenge At Legit Speedway Park

Bryan Hulbert – WEST PLAINS, Mo. (June 13, 2020) 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 sanctioned 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 A-Feature went non-stop with Covington stretching his advantage to 3.450 seconds over fellow Glenpool, Okla. driver, 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.

Miles Paulus moved from ninth to sixth with Iowa's Riley Goodno seventh. Austin O'Neal, Dustin Barks, and Brad Bowden completed the top ten.

The next event for the ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps is slated for Saturday, July 4, at Lake Ozark Speedway. The ASCS Mid-South Region goes green again Friday, June 26, at Centerville Super Speedway in Dardanelle, Ark.

Tim Crawley Makes His Mark With ASCS Elite Non-Wing At I-30 Speedway

Bryan Hulbert – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (June 13, 2020) A podium of cars carrying the No. 1 on their tail-tank at I-30 Speedway, but it was Tim Crawley who grabbed the only No. 1 that matters Saturday night as the wily veteran became the 31st different winner with the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating.

Crawley’s 25th career ASCS Regional victory, and ninth ASCS Region he has won with, the Ronnie Pitts Motorsports No. 1x gridded the field third at the drop of the green flag.

Pursuing Zach Pringle for the lead, Tim took the point with slide-job following a Lap 10 restart. Riding the cushion of the fabled quarter-mile to victory, Crawley was chased by Justin Zimmerman’s No. #1, but the Athens, Texas driver would have to settle for silver for the second straight night while Paul White’s No. 1 graced the show position.

Craig Oaks crossed fourth with Charlie Louden making up a trio of positions to fifth.

Jason Howell sixth then Zach Pringle ending up seventh was followed by Friday’s night’s winner, Anthony Nicholson, who moved through the field from 14th. Jeremy Middleton and Jamey Mooney completed the top ten.

The ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating is scheduled to hit the track again on Friday, June 26 at Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas.
