August 14, 2021 - Heartbreaker in Governor's Cup at Talladega Short Track
Back behind the wheel of the No. R1 Late Model, Riley Hickman visited Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.) on Saturday afternoon for the B.J. Parker Memorial Governor’s Cup. With a stout field of 45 Southern All Star Series entries on hand, Hickman topped the charts in time trials to claim the Knowles Pace Parts & Bodies fast time honors. Outdueling Sam Seawright in his 10-lap heat race, Riley locked into the pole position for the $10,000-to-win A-Main. After pacing the field for the first 50 circuits, Hickman suffered a flat tire while trying to fend off Michael Page on lap 57 that brought a disappointing end to his evening.
