NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Season to Close Oct. 1
Sep 7, 2006 - updated Sep 7th, 2006 5:09pm

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --

NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championship contenders now have a few more weeks to make a run for the title. NASCAR has announced that the closing date for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series, which is contested at 60 tracks in the U.S. and Canada, has been pushed back to Oct. 1, 2006. Traditionally, the series had concluded by mid-September.

Any NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series-sanctioned events held between Jan. 1-Oct. 1, 2006 will be counted towards the series championship. This later date gives competitors a few more weeks to complete their season and tally points towards the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championships.

NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series drivers compete for local track awards as well as NASCAR’s Divisional and National championships, which are determined by a points system, and a share of the $1.7 million NASCAR point fund.

Don Hawk, NASCAR’s Director of Regional Racing Development, said the extended deadline will benefit teams, tracks and drivers.

“By extending the season to Oct. 1, NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series drivers now have more time to complete their seasons and less worry about rainouts or weather delays,” said Hawk. “Many NASCAR-sanctioned short tracks hold races well into October, so this was a natural extension of the season and a way to support our competitors.”

Participating NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series tracks are assigned into four Divisions – Division I, II, III or IV. Each Division is equally weighted and includes a variety of tracks. Drivers in the feature class at each track earn points towards the Division championship, based on their best 16 finishes of the season at any tracks within their Division. Each of the four Division champions, based on the point standings after Oct. 1, wins a $25,000 point fund award. The Division champion with the highest point total overall, based on their 16 best finishes, wins the national title and a $50,000 bonus. Peyton Sellers, of Danville, Va., won the 2005 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division I and national championship while competing at South Boston (Va.) Speedway.
