Riley Hickman traveled to Duck River Raceway Park (Wheel, Tennessee) on Saturday night, pulling double duty in both the UCRA Crate Late Model and Super Late Model divisions.
Powering a Rick Hixson-owned, MasterSbilt chassis in the season opener for the United Crate Racing Alliance Series (UCRA), Hickman earned the pole position for the $2,500-to-win feature after timing in quickest in a field of twenty-four cars. Leading all 40-laps, Riley captured his second Crate Late Model victory of the season with Ashley Newman, Rusty Ballenger, Eric Hickerson, and Robert Grant rounding out the top five.
Debuting in a brand-new #R1 Lazer Chassis in the Super Late Model division, Hickman earned another pole position starting spot for the A-Main via preliminary action. Holding off the field for the entire feature, Riley picked up his third victory of the season along with his second win of the night.
“We had the goal of just winning one feature on Saturday night, so to win both was pretty awesome,” said Hickman. “I really want to thank Rick Hixson for letting me drive his car in the Crate Late Model division, while I wait on my new one to be ready. Overall it was a fantastic night.”
