Three-State Flyers: Pencil Keeps Bedford Honors Close to Home

Series report

BEDFORD, Pa. - July 1. The Three State Flyers Late Model series visited the Bedford Speedway Friday, and Bedford’s own Jack Pencil made his hometown proud by picking up the win in the 35-lap main event.

Jack Pencil has been building momentum all season at Bedford. Fresh off a win the last time the Late Models circled Bedford, Pencil’s front row starting position for Friday’s Three State Flyer race set him up for a great chance to make it two in a row. However, Jason Covert, the hottest driver on the series trail was in town and started just one row behind.

Pencil immediately grabbed the lead at the start of the $3,000 to win event with regional standout Jamie Lathroum an Covert hot on his heels. Lathroum appeared to have a little something for the leader until he brought the yellow out in turn two on the eighth lap. This put Covert right on Pencil’s back bumper, with Scott LeBarron and Dylan Yoder following closely behind on the restart.

The fastest way around on this night was the high side, and Covert matched Pencil’s tire tracks for laps.

Yoder got by LeBarron for third on lap 15, but was never really able to pose too much of a threat to the top two. Covert seemed content on mirroring Pencil for most of the race, but in the final stages he left nothing on the table.

The car on the move was last year’s track champ Jeff Rine. Rine started last, and was able to come all the way up and steal the seventh spot from Chuck Clise on the final lap.

Pencil was solid up front and repelled any of Covert’s attempts for the lead, taking the checkered for the 28th time of his career at Bedford. Covert finished a close second, and Yoder came home third a few car lengths back.
