Dusty season finale
No cars were able to catch the three front-runners during the Speedy Creek Racing Association’s Season Ender on Sunday. All three drivers that led their respective standings heading into the day were able to maintain their place in the standings, although it did make for an interesting final race day in front of 443 fans at the Speedy Creek Raceway at Kinetic Exhibition Park.
The closest finish came in the Hobby Stock class where #7 Cam Weston was barely able to hold on for a three-point win over #22 Clay Nelson. Weston, who has led the standings since the second race day on June 13th, entered the day with an 11-point lead over Nelson. Weston was unable to win a race on Sunday but he did earn 39 points for a season total of 346. Nelson won the feature and earned 47 points to finish with 343 on the campaign.
Corey Mohr, driving the #5 car, won a pair of heats as that car placed eighth with 205 points.
Earl Coward, driving the #21 car, won the other two Hobby Stock heats to place the car in third with 327 points.
#90 Barry Winter sealed the Street Stock title with a heat and a feature win for 387 points on the season. #98 Daryl Kehler won the other heat to place second with 358 points on the strength of six wins in nine Street Stock race days. Winter finished with a Speedy Creek Raceway leading 12 wins, winning races in eight of nine race days this season.
#19 James Johnson was unable to win a race but picked up 40 points to lock up the Mini Stock points race. Johnson took over the points lead on July 17 and never looked back with four race wins over six race days.
#7x Chris Coward finished in second with 221 points. #2 Kelly Krause won a heat and the feature to place third overall with 211 points. #22 Ken Goebel won the other heat and placed fifth with 195 points.
The SCRA will wrap up their season with the 2010 Banquet and Awards Night at the Eagles Hall on October 16.
