3 Drivers, 3 Points, 1 Champion To Crown

By Jason Christley, NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Three drivers, each of whom ran multiple races and added a win to their resume. As a result, the race for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national championship is arguably the tightest in the history of the series.

With just two weekends remaining, only three points separate the top three drivers. That's the equivalent of two positions on the race track -- or the difference between a win and a second-place finish -- after the trio have combined to run 104 races at 14 different race tracks.

By Adam Fenwick, Special to NASCARHomeTracks.com

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In order to win a championship at North Carolina’s historic Bowman Gray Stadium, you have to do a lot of things right.

You have to have a fast race car, you have to win races and perhaps most importantly, you have to avoid the on track mayhem that comes with racing at on Bowman Gray’s tight quarter-mile flat oval.

This year the man that did that the best was Burt Myers, who last Saturday night clinched his seventh career modified track championship at the track located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
