Jason Covert Makes a Statement with the Outlaws

Returned to day job as the leader of World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series standings 

CONCORD, NC - Feb. 26, 2016 - Jason Covert is not as well known as many of the drivers he competed against during the opening weekend of World of Outlaws Craftsman® Late Model Series action at Screven (Ga.) Motor Speedway, but none of that mattered as the Pennsylvania-native left Georgia two weeks ago with the series points lead.

It was a testament to Covert's experience and skill as a driver as well as the competition the full-time series drivers face every night.

A native of Orbisonia, Pa., Covert began racing in 1987 after his father purchased him a 1977 Ford Pinto for $75 on his 16th birthday. Driving the Pinto, Covert competed in a four cylinder mini-stock series at Hill Valley Speedway and Path Valley Speedway for 10 years, winning two track championships at Path Valley.
