LATE RESULTS

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series

Fan Appreciation Night/Fireworks Finale

Irwindale Speedway 

Irwindale, California

November 2, 2013

 

Irwindale, Calif. - - The final race of the 2013 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Irwindale Speedway drew a strong crowd of fans for a spectacular night of stock car short track action. 

 

Six new 2013 season champions were crowned on Saturday evening, starting with young Rickey Lewis from Oxnard in the INEX Bandoleros and Darren Amidon (Lakeside) in the INEX Legends Cars division.  In the visiting Pick Your Part Southwest Tour Trucks, Arcadia's Neil Conrad got the gold, and in the Superior Auto Engineering Super Stocks, Zack Green, from La Verne took home the 2013 title. 

 

In the Super Late Models, Irwindale's winningest-ever driver ever, Rip Michels (San Fernando) convincingly notched another race win along with the annual championship.  And, in one of the closest-ever season-long points battles Redland's Darren Cheek took the Progressive Painting Irwindale Race Trucks season title by virtue of a better race finish record (his two best finishes, two second places over Arcadia's Todd Cameron's single second place over the season) after Saturday's race ended with Cheek and Cameron in a tie for first place in annual points.

 

The racing was crisp, clean, and spirited all night long and the fans showed their appreciation by standing up and cheering at every opportunity.  It was a simply great night to celebrate the comeback season for NASCAR at Irwindale.

 

As one did to open the season back in early April, a spectacular fireworks show punctuated the evening with a loud and very bright farewell to the action-packed NASCAR 2013 competition season at Irwindale Speedway and a look (not all that far away) ahead to the exciting 2014 NASCAR season that's right around the corner.
