Drivers chasing points in all divisions are battling to get top honors, or maybe accomplish other goals that they have set for the 2015 season. Steve Carlson has the Late Model championship locked in, but with the new “Chase” this year, there are two nights left for drivers to be contenders or watchers.
This Saturday night two more drivers will be eliminated in both Sportsmen and Late Models, based on remaining contenders eligible. Of those contenders, the drivers finishing lowest are eliminated. The final four in both Sportsmen and Late Model will battle it out at the Oktoberfest Race Weekend, Thursday October 8th. Highest finishing driver will earn the “Championship Chase” honors and the awesome trophy that accompanies it.
