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.

In other Durrence Layne Chevrolet Modified Sportsman Week 18 action, Ryan Sawyers of Newberry, TN took a 40-point win on Saturday night at Camden Speedway in Camden, TN in the Sawyers Motorsports Special. Michael Blakeney took his second win of the season on Saturday night with a 40-point win at ECM Speedway in Arkadelphia, AL in the Blakeney Racing Special.

Chris Yarbrough of Eastaboga, AL drove the United Maintenance Special to his fifth win of the season on Saturday night at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL.
