Riley Hickman Races to MARS Checkers in Opener at Clarksville

by Ben Shelton
CLEVELAND, Tennessee (March 11) –After a couple weekends of bad luck for Riley Hickman, the Cleveland, Tennessee driver bounced back for a $3,000 victory in Friday night's Mid America Racing Series (MARS) DIRTCar Series opener at Clarksville Speedway (Clarksville, Tennessee) in his #R1 BIF Motorsports/Hickman Manufacturing Company/CVR Super Late Model.

Thirty-five entries highlighted the Super Late Model Portion of the annual Tuckassee Toilet Bowl in round #1 of the doubleheader weekend. Riley posted the quickest lap in his respective group during time trials and went on to win his heat race, locking him into the outside pole position for the main event. During the shortened 20 lap feature, Hickman jumped into the top spot and opened a comfortable lead early. A hard-charging Brian Shirley was able to close on the leader during the late stages of the race but it was all Hickman at the finish line, picking up his second win of the season over Shirley, Justin Asplin, Jason Riggs, and Walker Arthur.

Saturday night's finale drew twenty-seven competitors for the $5,000-to-event, and Hickman started the night off by winning his heat race, which locked him into the third starting spot for the 40 lap main event. Unfortunately, the night came to an early end when heavy rain moved into the area during the feature with just nine laps complete. The event was not rescheduled and Hickman was credited with a third place finish.

This weekend, March 15th-16th, will see Riley entering a pair of events in Tennessee and Georgia. On Saturday night the final 41 laps of last Saturday night's preempted feature will be completed at Clarksville Speedway. The unsanctioned race pays $2,500-to-win. On Sunday afternoon the team will travel to Lavonia Speedway (Lavonia, Georgia) for a $5,000-to-win program with the Ultimate Super Late Model tour. For more information on Riley's scheduled events please visit www.ClarksvilleSpeedway.com and www.UltimateSupers.com .
