Drevicki Wires Lincoln East Coast Sprint Opener

The 2018 USAC East Coast Points Champion, Steven Drevicki, started off his 2019 campaign in the best way possible. Drevicki, from Reading, Pennsylvania combined his knowledge of Lincoln Speedway and his expertise in a wingless sprint car and came up with a near flawless night of racing.

Heat #1 went to Carlisle, PA’s Chandler Leiby. Late in the race, Leiby felt the heat from Eddie Strada, who came from the sixth starting spot. Leiby ran a consistent and clean line, holding off Strada for the heat win.

Heat #2 went to Eric Jennings, of Bloomingburg, NY. Jennings took the lead from young-gun, Trey Hivner early on. Jennings went on to capture the heat win, despite constant pressure from Steven Drevicki, who came all the way from eight place.

After a six-car redraw, Drevicki found himself on the pole position. Before the race, Drevicki said, “I don’t usually like the pole because I never know where to go.” After testing a few different lines, Drevicki found comfort in the bottom groove. Carmen Perigo was an early contender, but Strada and Jennings battled him hard, allowing Drevicki to pull away.

On lap 14, Drevicki caught up to lap traffic. He was able to finesse his way through the field with ease, not allowing anyone to gain much ground on him.

The USAC East Coast 360 Sprint Cars will make their next appearance THIS WEDNESDAY April 17th, 2019 at the Delaware International Speedway. More information will be released soon.
