Mother Nature has spoken, she decided our champions for the Fleet Doctor Fall Mini Series Bracket Program today when she gave us rainy weather that won't allow us to run our final race of the series.
Below we discuss the McCormack Racing Sportsman Championship:
Lining up next Johnnie Cook this season has been a risky thing. This man finished #1 in Sportsman Mini Series, #3 in Pro Mini Series, #5 in the Sportsman Main Series, qualified for Team Milan in Pro, and WON at Division 3 Bracket Finals in Sportsman. When I say it was risky to end up next to him, I mean it. He had an EXCELLENT season. This Fall Mini Series Sportsman Championship only proved what we already knew: Johnnie Cook was on FIRE. It was no easy feat for him though as the main series Sportsman champion, Greg McCurry, was on his tail only 21 points out in 3rd place coming into our final race. Only 10 points behind Cook in 2nd place was Nathan Long who made his mark on the Sportsman class during this mini series. Ultimately, Cook's solid performance had him in that top spot coming into the final race so he locked in that championship today. There is something to be said about a strong beginning and middle, especially when at the end the weather gets so risky for this sport.
Congratulations to Johnnie Cook on this championship and what I consider to be an excellent season of racing!
