DURRENCE LAYNE PERFORMANCE PARTS STREET STOCK DIVISION WEEK 27 PREVIEW
ADAIRSVILLE, GA – Week 27 of the 2019 Durrence Layne Weekly Racing Series will only feature 6 tracks on the schedule for drivers to earn those ever important final few points as the season winds down.
With time running out, drivers will be making their last ditch efforts to replace their finishes with better points finishes to see if they will be able to capture the 2019 National Championship and be honored at the Annual Awards Banquet which will be detailed in the coming days. Season ending special events dot the schedule with just a handful of tracks continuing their Weekly Racing scheduled events for the remainder of the season.
Week 27 will see all Saturday night events that will take place at Camden Speedway in Camden, TN, Duck River Raceway Park in Lewisburg, TN, Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, MS, Jackson Speedway in Byram, MS, Needmore Speedway in Norman Park, GA, and Southern Raceway in Milton, FL.
Mike Lane of Wing, AL is the Durrence Layne Performance Parts Street Stock Division point leader going into Week 27 of the 2019 season. Lane has a best 14-week total of 698 points, and he will be trying to net on a 49. Lane needs two more 50-point wins to turn in a Perfect Season of 700 points.
Jason Baker sits right on the heels of Lane in hopes of capturing the National Championship, but this week will be a somber one for Baker and his race team. Baker’s car owner, Chris Carden, passed away suddenly this week leaving a large void for a team that was poised to make a run for that championship as the season winds down. The thoughts and prayers of all of us at Durrence Layne Racing go out to the team and Carden’s family members as he was a great supporter of the division and will be sorely missed at the track.
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 29-week season that concludes on October 13.
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 total each week as their total for that week.
The top ten drivers in the Durrence Layne Performance Parts Street Stock 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.
