Three-State Flyers: Covert Wins Series Final at Bedford
BEDFORD, Pa. – Sept. 10. The Three State Flyer Series was in Bedford Friday
for the final race of the season, and Jason Covert picked up his third win of 2010 at the historic speedway,
and his third series win of the season.
Covert thrilled fans in an exciting 35 lap main event. Covert started
fourth, as second starting Jeremy Miller took the early lead. Miller kept a wicked pace, with Chuck
Clise, Covert, and J.T. Spence in tow until Covert worked his way to second.
It wasn’t long until the front runners caught lapped traffic, leading to
a scary moment for Covert when he made contact with a lapped car and suffered some cosmetic damage to the
right rear of his mount. The yellow came out for the incident as the lapped car of Keith Killander was
disabled for the evening.
When racing resumed, Covert took to the bottom of the speedway and the leader
Miller ran the high side. Within a few laps, the pair once again caught lapped traffic and Covert made a
daring move in turn three to take the lead with 17 laps to go. Covert lasted few several late cautions
to take the victory over Miller, Chuck Clise, Jack Pencil - from ninth, and Spence.
