Hickman's 'gamble' pays off in victory

Posted 11/28/2016 in Local Sports

Riley Hickman's "gamble" paid off. The Cleveland, Tennessee, native has plenty of experience racing at Magnolia Motor Speedway, where track conditions are relatively consistent. Tire choice for Saturday's Possum Town Grand Prix, though, wasn't as easy as it normally is, Hickman said. Hickman chose hard compound tires all the way around, while the majority of the field, including second-place finisher Chase Washington, chose soft tires. The result was a smooth run through all 100 laps, a win, and $10,000 for Hickman.
