Sargeant set the fastest time in practice, qualified on the pole, and led every lap of the Southeast Limited Late Model Series event from Virginia International Raceway on Saturday, August 16. With trophy in tow, Sargeant then made his way to Hickory Motor Speedway to compete in the Hickory Motor Speedway 64th Anniversary 100-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Event where he qualified in the 16th position, but raced through the field to finish in the fourth position.

In the first of two New River Bank 75-lap feature events at Motor Mile Speedway, Sargeant finished in the sixth position and fifth position in the second 75-lap feature, a great result for the rookie as this was Sargeant’s first ever career start a the famed .416 mile Speedway. The team moved to Hickory Motor Speedway for Saturday’s Hendrick of Honda 100-lap event, where Sargeant was battling for a top-3 position on lap 51 when contact was made and he was spun out by the car behind him. The incident would relegate Sargeant to a 19th-place finish at Hickory Motor Speedway.
