Covington Kicks 2024 Off With a Podium at Southern Raceway

Matt Covington - Glenpool, OK. (Feb 28th,2023) Matt Covington and team kicked off the 2024 season with the USCS Tour at Southern Raceway in Milton, Florida. The results were a podium and 8th place finish, accomplishing the purpose of shaking the car down in preparation for a loaded schedule.

“There were some positives from the weekend for sure,” stated Covington. “Both nights the car was solid and had tons of speed with no mechanical issues. That gives me confidence in our package and winter preparations. We didn’t draw well either night, but we made adjustments that helped all weekend and definitely gained on it from start to finish. On Friday night, we got the car a little lazy on the right rear and struggled on corner exits to make the runs and passes we needed. We made some solid changes for Saturday and it showed in the feature as we went 8th to 3rd. We definitely learned some good things for the notebook. Also, a big thanks to Vern and all the supporters we have this year making it possible for us to travel up and down the road, chasing another season. I’m excited to see what this year will bring. We do need to keep one of our big supporters Ken Tate in our thoughts and prayers. He has been heavy in our hearts as he continues to fight a major illness at home.”

Up next for Matt and the team is some 410 action with the Elite Outlaw Sprints in Texas. Friday night race will be at Hunt County Raceway, followed by Saturday at Kennedale Speedway Park.
