Our October 5/6th Summit ET Series Finals @ ECD wrapped up what was supposed to be a 7 race series by getting roughly 5 and a half races in, mostly due to Mother Nature and her hateful ways (rain!). With 120 racers that have at least completed one round of eliminations this year, being named the season champion in your class is no minor feat, major congratulations to all of our drivers and we look forward to you all defending your titles with us in 2019! See series points totals here.
Velicity Morris (pictured above) is our Grumpy’s Diesel Jr Dragster 2018 Summit ET Series Champion, with 150 points total and a lead of 26 points over runner up, Velicity dominated the season by having STRONG finishes in 3 of the 4 points events she competed in this year.
Ronald Jernigan, the 2018 Motorcycle Summit ET Series Champion had a 13 point lead over the runner up due to a strong finish in the only event we ran the M/C class this year. We look forward to having Ronald back out in 2019 and hopefully a much larger field to defend his title against!
Mike Jubinski absolutely dominated the Sportsman ET class this year and is crowned the champion by being only 4 points shy of having DOUBLE the points that the runner up came in with. Mike attended 4/5 points races we had this year with solid finishes every time, netting him the 2018 champion!
Paul Romel, our 2018 Summit ET Series Pro ET Champion, with 135 points has a 31 point lead over the two competitors tied for the runner up position at 104 points each. Like Velicity and Mike, Paul went rounds in 4 of the 5 points races we had this year, racking up them points where they count!
Johnny Kelley, by 3 points (115 total), our 2018 Summit ET Series Super Pro ET Champion! Runner-up Julius Pruitt had a strong lead on the field coming into our final event but Julius going out 2nd round and Johnny with a 1st round win (10 extra points) and holding on for dear life until 4th round that same race, let Johnny slide by for the points series win!
Our champs will be rewarded with TROPHIES, a custom embroidered CHAMPIONSHIP JACKET… AND.. 2019 Season (and the rest of 2018) ECD Gold Card which will get them into the track whenever our gates are open AND free tech cards to compete in 2019 Summit ET Series races at ECD!
We have big plans for the ET Series race at ECD for 2019… STAY TUNED!
