7 Champions to be crowned in an epic final night of racing in 2022 at CNS

October 5th, 2022
So far in 2022 we’ve crowned 4 champions. On September 24th, we saw two thrilling championships come down to the wire with #9 Curtis Heldenbrand making up 8 points to win the Matco Tools Pro Truck Championship & #8 Dan Alamaa winning his first ever Galitz Transportation Late Model Championship. Click Here to read the recap.

Last weekend Mother Nature decided to play a part raining out Sunbelt Rentals Championship night featuring Super Late Models, Super Stocks & Figure 8’s. With that said we didn’t want to see the championships decided that way so CNS officials have created one epic night of racing to finish the 2022 season this Saturday where we will crown 6 champions during Coca Cola Halloween Celebration night.

Divisions include: Mountain Fire Protection Super Late Models, PB&T Bank Super Stocks, Elite Diesel Service Figure 8’s, AC Transmission Center Legends, Puzzle Effect Denver Bandoleros & the Witthar Racing Trains.


SUPER LATE MODELS:
The 2022 season has shown the Super Late Model division to be a very competitive class with 4 different winners in 7 races with 3 different drivers winning 2 races each. Jace Hansen is the only driver not inside the top 5 in points with 2 wins as he is not competing for the championship. His two wins came at the first race of the season & Challenge Cup. Heading into Saturday, #24 Cody Dempster holds a 16 point lead over #05 Nick Cooper. Both drivers are vying for their first Super Late Model Championship.

Top 5 in Points:

SUPER STOCKS
The Super Stocks have put on some great shows this season with the 2021 Champion #49 Chris Cox dominating the season with 4 wins and looking to make it a second straight Super Stock title. However, one competitor has been very consistent all season. The 1NE Troy Witthar has proved you can win a championship without a win. Heading into Saturday, 1 point separates the top 2 in points.
