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.
