All Four NCRA Divisions Ready for Season Point Finale!

Park City, Kansas – October 10, 2016 - A season-long chase for the 2016 title for all four National Championship Racing Association of Park City, Kansas presented by Precise Racing Products divisions comes to an end on Saturday night, October 22, at Salina Speedway in Salina, Kansas.

This huge one-night event will be the first time in series history that all four NCRA divisions will end their season away from their home track of 81 Speedway in Park City in an event that will be promoted by Speedway’s Inc.

Below is a brief overview of the current point standings for the series sprint, modified, crate late model and mod-lite divisions with drivers throughout each looking to solidify their top ten standings and be invited to the series season-ending banquet in January.

Sprints: Having led most of the 2016 race season, Nebraska’s Don Droud, Jr. has the Ochs Brothers #1x top the point standings and a slim fifteen-point lead over six-time and defending tour champion C.J. Johnson. Droud has amassed three feature victories on the season while Johnson’ consistency has him second in the standings despite being winless thus far this season. Not to be forgot, Jeremy Campbell will come into championship night with a two-race win streak and just 150-points out of the lead.

This year finds Scott Green the point leader in his quest for his first-ever championship. Green comes into the final night with a slim 25-point lead over two-time and defending tour champion Dan Powers. Green has gone winless while Powers has one victory on the season. Not to be counted out, Josh Lanterman sits third in the standings and 150-points out of the lead.
