Just a week ago Scott Heckert, a 20-year old hailing from Ridgefield, Connecticut, brought home top honors in his first NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victory at Watkins Glen International Raceway in Upstate New York. By pulling off a daring pass late in the race, Heckert took the Bully Hill Vineyards 125 win at Watkins Glen. With a similar late race pass in the Biscuitville 125, Scott Heckert was able to prove that his win at Watkins Glen wasn’t just luck. Heckert seems to have a knack for turning his Project Lifesaver Chevrolet both left and right on a road course.

Cameron Hayley, who led the most laps in the Biscuitville 125, was out front on lap 51 when the fifth caution flag of the day forced a restart with eight laps to go. This restart gave Scott Heckert just the edge he would need to work his way past Cameron Hayley and take over the lead. Heckert wasn’t in the clear just yet as another caution flag came out before the final lap. “I thought I had it. Then we got the caution and that restart was a lot of work. It was everything the car had for two laps. It was tough, but glad we got the win” said Heckert.

Cameron Hayley had to settle for another runner-up finish with the Biscuitville 125 being his fourth this season. If Hayley was disappointed in his finish it didn’t show. After the race Hayley commented “It was a wild and hot afternoon. Overall a great run for the Cabinets by Hayley Chevrolet.” Austin Hill would finish third with Gray Gaulding and Kaz Grala rounding out the top five finishers.

The top 10 finishers were running pretty close at Virginia International Speedway in Alton, Virginia but Heckert held onto his lead finishing .848 seconds ahead of runner-up Cameron Hayley
