JASON HIETT BUSY DURING AL STATE
26, 2016) Jason Hiett was extremely busy over
the September 24-25 weekend, as the annual 'Alabama State Championship'
was held at the historic East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix
City, Alabama. In Super Late Model action, a pair of $4,000
top prizes were on the line with the Southern All Stars Dirt
Racing Series (SAS). On Saturday night, Jason qualified third
quickest in Group A during time trials, but was an early retiree
in the 40-lap headliner and settled for a twenty-second place
effort. At EAMS on Sunday afternoon, Jason posted the fastest
time in Group A during qualifying, started the 40-lapper from
the pole position, and placed an impressive runner-up behind
only race winner Chris Madden!
In other action over the weekend, Jason also entered a Crate
Late Model and a Late Model Sportsman in $5,000 to win programs
during the 'Alabama State Championship.' The Oxford, Alabama
ace moved past five competitors during the Crate feature to
score another runner-up performance behind only victor Mark
Whitener. In the Sportsman division, Jason started fourth on
the feature grid, but was involved in a hard wreck early in
the race that relegated him to twenty-third in the final finishing
order. Complete results from all three classes can be accessed
