Hickman set fast time among 16 entrants and won the first of two heats, but the "Catbird Seat" proved to be dominant as Hixson dominated from the drop of the green flag.
Behind Hickman was former Ice Bowl Champion Bobby Mayse, last week’s winner Kevin Gibson and former Track Champion Lil’ John Ownbey. Craig Burrows of Chickamagua, Ga., dominated the Crate LM feature over Jimmy Elliott, Lamar Scoggins, Bobby Richey Jr., and Jason Welshan.
The A-Hobby feature was won by Glen Seaton III, the B-Hobby race was won by Jason Brown, of Decatur, the Pony was won by Nick Perry, of Lenoir City, and the FWD finale went to Daniel Burnette, of Chattanooga.
FWD racer Brad Cross was involved in a hard crash in turn two during the heat race. Cross was sent to a local hospital but reports are he’s in high spirits even after suffering a broken thumb, fractured hand, and a concussion.
