here …” Covert said in victory lane, his voice trailing off
and cracking with heartfelt emotion. “I’m never speechless,
but I’m almost speechless.”

10 minutes away from Path Valley, controlled the action after
Satterlee’s demise and steered his Cameron-Mann Motorsports
Rocket XR1 car across the finish line with a half-straightaway
edge over defending AMS champion Jeff Rine of Danville, Pa.
Rine started 11th in his Longhorn Race Car and inherited the
runner-up spot on lap 31 when Satterlee pitted for a tire
