Entering the NeSmith RockAuto.com Winter Shootout sanctioned weekend, Riley Hickman visited Cochran Motor Speedway (Cochran, Georgia) on Friday night for the two-day event. In a field of 37 cars, Hickman timed in seventh in his qualifying group sending him into the B-Main. Transferring the Top 3 into the opening night feature, Riley locked his spot with a 10-lap consolation victory. Starting in 11th, Riley held his spot for all 40-laps recording an 11th place finish.
Starting Saturday off by laying down the fastest time overall in his qualifying group, Hickman locked his spot into the $5,000-to-win finale. Bringing home a podium finish, Riley was running in 1st the majority of the race but slipped back to 2nd late in the caution-plagued A-Main scoring a runner-up spot behind Kyle Bronson with Devin Dixon, Mark Whitener, and Andy Picklesimer rounding out the Top 5.
