(WOODHULL,NY)- A season’s worth of blood, sweat, tempers and tears will culminate on Saturday night at Ted and Brandi White’s Woodhull Raceway.
All eight of Woodhull’s division champions will be crowned, with five championships already being locked up before entering Championship Night. The Street Stock, Mini Stock, Warriors, FWD, and Hobby Stock championships have already been decided and were clinched last weekend during Legends Night.
Headlining the excitement will be the Insinger Performance Modifieds, where Billy Van Pelt carries a small eleven-point lead in quest of his record 21st Woodhull track title. Just like 2018, the battle lies between Cory Costa and Van Pelt.
Costa was leading the points going into last Saturday’s event, but after getting turned around in turn four during last week’s feature allowed Van Pelt to gain eleven points and take the points lead. Though Costa lost the point lead, he will have a slight advantage in the handicap assuming he earns that spot by qualifying through the heat race. Eleven points is a large gap going into championship night but is possible.
The NAPA Crate Sportsman saw an epic battle early in the year between Kenny Peoples Jr. and Jake Dgien. People Jr. trailed Dgien for the earlier half of the year but after Dgien having a couple bad nights, Peoples Jr. was able to capitalize and pull ahead.
The Cummings Trucking RUSH Crate Late Models will also come down to the wire on Saturday night. Addison, NY shoe Jason Knowles leads Kurt Stebbins. Knowles came close to winning the championship last season but fell short. Knowles currently has a ten point lead over Stebbins. He’s got a small cushion but it could easily turn on him.
The Joe Willcox Performance Automatics Street Stocks have seen a battle all season between Kurt Stebbins and Brett Marlatt. Going into this Saturday, Stebbins has a 13 point lead over Marlatt. It would be hard for Marlatt to capitalize but anything can happen Saturday.
Jeredd Dennis (Hobby Stocks), Codie Baker (FWD), Brooke McClain (Warriors), and Jason Ketrow (Mini Stocks) just have to show up and race their races. They will then be crowned the 2019 Champion for their respective division.
Pits open on Saturday at 3:30PM, followed by a Driver Appreciation Pig Roast in the pits with pit passes carrying a $30 fee. General Admission gates swing open at 4:30PM and will be $12 for adults 13 and up and $6 for Seniors 62+ and Students 8-12. The weekly $1 off Early Bird Special will run from 4:30PM-5:30PM.
