On Friday night Riley Hickman made the trip to Screven Motor Speedway (Sylvania, Georgia) for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series season-opener. Competing in two separate divisions for the two-day Winter Freeze VII, Hickman improved five positions in his Super Late Model heat but came short of a transfer spot with a 6th place finish. Taking the Top 3 out of the B-Main, Riley fell one spot short with a 4th place outing. In a field off 24 Crate Late Models, Hickman advanced nine spots in the main event scoring a 2nd place finish.
Returning on Saturday to a field of 46 Super Late Models, Riley registered a 7th place finish in his heat giving him final shot at the $10,000-to-win finale with a B-Main appearance. Needing to place in the Top 3 to make the show, Riley logged a 5th place spot bringing an early end to his night in the Super Late Model division. In the Crate Late Model division, Hickman earned the pole position for the A-Main after laying down the fastest time overall in qualifying. Going for a wild ride in the opening laps, Riley's night was over after flipping violently, but was able to walk away from the scary incident unharmed. (Glen Starek photo)
