SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS DECIDED ON THRILLING FINISHES

If you weren't at the track on Saturday, you might have missed the closest 3-car finish in the speedway's history concluding the Season Championship for the Hobby Stocks. Not only did all 3 cars finish within .094 seconds of each other, ALL 3 were going for the title. Austin Maynard led most of the way, but at times had Darrell Click challenging him on the outside. After numerous attempts at passing and multiple rubs, Click had to fall back and prepare for one last strategic attempt. This opened the door for Travis Schlabach to make his own attempt at the high side where he would find himself going from 3rd to first on the final laps of the race. Coming out of turn four for the checkered, Schlabach went to the outside of Maynard and Click went to the inside of Maynard. The rest was history with a photo finish and a celebration for Travis Schlabach with yet another track championship, this time in upset fashion.

The Late Model Sportsmans also had a close finish with Austin Maynard leading the way and taking home back-to-back championships in the division. Maynard made it look easy for most of the year but this time he had to hold off a faster Josh Sommers, who made several attempts at passing on the outside. After Sommers went to the tail for a caution, it was Donny Klotz going for the title on the outside late in the race. Klotz made numerous attempts at the pass but in the end Maynard proved to be the champion once again by holding the other 2 contenders off.

Marcus Vitali finished a strong 2nd in the Mini Stocks feature resulting in a track championship for the 2 team. Chris Harmon also finished 2nd in the FWD race to secure his first championship.

Ryan Anglemyer took home the speedway's first ever Hornet championship after an impressive season by the rookie.

Congratulations to all of our track champions and to everyone who made this season a success, ending with the most exciting Chase yet!
