Coos Bay, Oregon...September 2...Rob Lindsey scored the victory in the Iron Man 40 Wingless Sprint Car Main Event Saturday night at Coos Bay Speedway. Lindsey is the current NWWT points leader, and he appears to be closing in on his second consecutive championship. Lindsay Barney was close behind Lindsey in second, but she gained little in her battle with Tim Alberding for second in the standings. Alberding won a close battle with Patrick Canfield for the third place finish.

Dr. Scott Lenz was back to try for second feature win, but he suffered mechanical issues in the heat and was a feature scratch. Butler stayed close behind Montgomery in the Main Event, but Montgomery was not to be denied the win. Chamberlain settled for third ahead of Stacy Robinson and Charlie Withers.
Reigning Street Stock champion Daniel Land won his second Main Event of the season. Land had a battle all night long with Ken Fox. Fox got the better of Land to win the five lap Trophy Dash, but Land held off Fox in the ten lap heat race. It was close in the Main Event, but Land prevailed ahead of Fox, Steve Dubisar and point leader Justin Krossman.
Sam Talon won the 20 lap Mini Outlaws Main Event. Talon had a battle on his hands down the stretch with Jason Kallam, but Talon managed to beat him to the checkered flag.

Lauver outran Talon to win the ten lap heat race, but Talon scored the win ahead of Lauver in the five lap Trophy Dash.

Point Season Finale Coming To Coos Bay Speedway
Coos Bay, Oregon...The season finale for the NASCAR Whelen All American Racing Series at Coos Bay Speedway is happening this Saturday night. It's Sponsorship Appreciation Championship Night. The Winged Sprint Cars are back this week along with the Super Late Models, Sportsman Late Models, Street Stocks, Mini Outlaws and Hornets.
The closest championship battle at the track is happening in the Winged Sprint Car division. Lawrence Van Hoof has a 16 point lead over Dave May. Both drivers have won two Main Events, and Van Hoof has led the battle all season long. Van Hoof opened the season with a second place finish, while May had his first of two DNF's. Van Hoof has been consistent with Top 5 finishes in all six starts. If he were to slip up, May could overtake him. Likewise, May leads Casey Sabin by 16 points in the battle for second. This week is also an opportunity to get a win. Other drivers to watch in pursuit of that victory include Ryan Kingrey, Brett Hulsey, Christon Beaird and Scott Walling.
With nine wins this season, Mike George has led the Super Late Model championship battle from the start. Counting the State championship and the rookie prize available to any driver who has never held a NASCAR license, George could win $6,000 by just maintaining his lead for one more week. He should clinch all of that just by taking a green flag. Meanwhile 2015 champion Toby McIntyre has a solid hold on second, which is worth around $3,000. McIntyre is looking for his second win of the season, and other drivers to watch for include third ranked Chris Ray, Thor Kristensen, 2014 champion Trina Post and Brody Montgomery.
Montgomery is in his rookie season in Super Late Moels, but he's working on a $1,000 championship season in Sportsman Late Models. Montgomery won for the 13th time of the season last week, once again chased by his closest rival Wayne Butler. Reigning champion Butler has three wins this season and is only 22 points out of the lead. He'll finish second unless Montgomery really slips up this week. One time winner Dyllan Siewell will finish third in the final standings, and other drivers to watch for include Charlie Withers, Jeff Krossman, Deven Brown and Troy Chamberlain.
The Street Stocks had a slow start this year in their $500 championship battle. Justin Krossman was there from the start and is a five time winner. He has already clinched the championship. In fact, Ken Fox will finish second in standings following his season best second place feature finish last week. Two time winner Jeff Thurman will end up third in the standings. There is a tie between six time winner Steve Dubisar and reigning champion Daniel Land for fourth. Land won his second Main Event of the year last week. Other drivers to watch for this week include Josh Bearden, Kelly McIntyre and Dustin Hitner.
Sam Talon is well in control of his second Mini Outlaw championship of the last three years. Talon won last week for the seventh time of the season. Dan Daniels has been at every show this year and will finish second in the standings. This week gives him one more chance at a win. Jason Kallam was looking for his second win last week, but Talon forced him to settle for second. Kallam will finish third in the standings. Other drivers to watch for this week include five time winner Rob Lauver, two time winners John Henry and Ken Fox, Alyssa Johnson and Jason Berrier.
Ryan Siewell has had an amazing season in Hornets. Siewell leads the points on the strength of 11 wins and 16 Top 5 finishes, and he will win the championship. Sam Taylor is fighting to hold on for second and possibly his first win this week. Taylor leads Hannah Robison by 10 points and reigning champion Jeremiah Reiber by 16 points. Reiber won his third Main Event last week, while Robison had a third place finish. The teen leadfoot Robison will be trying for her first win this week. April Warmack has had a good year and will finish fifth in the standings by just taking a green flag this week. Other drivers to look for this week are two time winners Tom Williams and Braden Fugate, Patrick Nagel, Tim Young, 2016 point runnerup Jeremy Beard and Matt Butler.
Championship Night will be the final chance to watch a full slate of NASCAR action. It should be a great night of racing. The final oval track race of the year will happen on October 7th. That will be the Prather Family Lucas Oil Open Show and will feature Super Late Models, Sportsman Late Models, Street Stocks, Mini Outlaws and Hornets.
