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 total each week as their total for that week.
The top ten drivers in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model 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, with the National Champion pocketing $10,000.
Steve Russell of Pontotoc, MS is sixth with a best 14-week total of 663 points, Seth McCormack of Muscle Shoals, AL is tied with Ben Brocato for seventh with a best 14-week total of 648 points. Matthew Brocato of Muscle Shoals, AL is ninth with a best 14-week total of 630 points, and Mike Henn of Muscle Shoals, AL rounds out the Top 10 and the final points fund-paying position of the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model Division National standings with a best 14-week total of 613 points.
