DURRENCE LAYNE CHEVROLET MODIFIED SPORTSMAN DIVISION WEEK 18 PREVIEW

ADAIRSVILLE, GA – The Top 5 drivers in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Division National point standings have one more week to earn full points before they hit the 14-week mark of their respective seasons. Week 18 of the 27-week Durrence Layne Weekly Racing Series 2019 season will see five Saturday night races on the schedule of events.

Drivers racing in Durrence Layne Weekly Racing Series events compete for both a Track point fund and a National point fund. Drivers compete against drivers racing at Durrence Layne Racing sanctioned tracks across the country using a National points system over a 27-week season that concludes on September 29.

A driver’s best 14 weekly point totals count as their season total. Once a driver reaches 14 weeks of competition, they start trying to net points by replacing the lowest weekly total among their best 14 weekly totals with a higher one. A driver can only count their best point finish each week as their total for that week.

The top ten drivers in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Division National point standings will earn a seat at the Durrence Layne Racing Annual Awards Banquet to receive a point fund check and a trophy.

ECM Speedway in Arkadelphia, AL will host another special Saturday night race for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Division. Saturday night races are also on the Week 18 schedule for Camden Speedway in Camden, TN, North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, AL, Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL, and Thunderhill Raceway in Summertown, TN.

Going into Week 18 competition, there is a tight battle for the 2019 Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Division National Championship with just four points separating the top two drivers. Luke Riddle of Hartselle, AL leads the National standings with 624 points. The defending National Champion Oakley Gillespie of Five Points, TN is second with 620 points.

David Nichols of Hodges, AL is third in the National standings with 555 points and Ron Bailey of Meridianville, AL is fourth with 532 points. Seth Johnston of Santa Fe, TN rounds out the Top 5 in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Division National standings with 528 points.
