FINAL points


Welcome home, Jason Covert

By Kevin Kovac senior writer
Returning to the track where he started his racing career in 1987 for the first time in nearly 15 years, the 45-year-old driver from York Haven, Pa., registered an emotional $4,000 triumph in Monday night’s 40-lap Appalachian Mountain Speedweek presented by Century Link feature at Path Valley Speedway Park.

Covert called on all his old knowledge of the high-banked, quarter-mile oval to outduel Gregg Satterlee of Indiana, Pa., for the lead just after the race’s midway point and then pull away from the pack after Satterlee’s hopes were dashed by a right-rear flat tire on lap 31.
