Kosiski Takes Aim at Weekly Series History in Div ll

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --

(Sept. 6, 2006) – In the race for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division II championship – and a possible national championship – things could not be looking any better for dirt Late Model star Joe Kosiski.

Over the Labor Day weekend, Kosiski, of Omaha, Neb., took a giant leap forward in his quest to win the championship. Kosiski won last Saturday’s feature race at Adams County Speedway, in Corning, Iowa, and picked up two victories in twin feature races held Sunday at I-80 Speedway, in Greenwood, Neb.

Three wins in three races – coupled with disastrous finishes of 17th and 20th place by his brother and championship rival Ed Kosiski – have placed Joe Kosiski on top of the NDWS Division II standings with 1,110 points (based on his best 16 finishes of the season). To put Kosiski’s record in perspective, the maximum points any driver in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series could ever have is 1,120.

Kosiski leads the NDWS Division II standings and is also the current NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series national championship front runner. He has narrowed the NDWS Division II championship field down to just one other driver: Canada’s Jonathan Bouvrette, who races at Autodrome St. Eustache in Quebec. Bouvrette, of St. Therese, Quebec, can overtake Kosiski for the NDWS Division II lead, but only if he wins at least six more races this season.

St. Eustache has eight more NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series races on its schedule. Kosiski, meanwhile, has up to three races remaining, at Adams County Speedway and I-80 Speedway.

Should Kosiski prevail as the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division II champion, it carries a $25,000 (U.S.) bonus and would represent his fifth major NASCAR title.

If he also won the national championship, Kosiski would join the late Larry Phillips as the only drivers to repeat as NASCAR’s weekly national champion. In the 25-year history of the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series, Phillips has been the only driver to win more than one national title. Kosiski’s first championship came 20 years earlier, in 1986, when he raced at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., Adams County Speedway, I-70 Speedway in Odessa, Mo., Eagle Raceway in Lincoln, Neb. and the former Sunset Speedway in Omaha. The other NASCAR champions from that season included Dale Earnhardt in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series, Larry Pearson in the NASCAR Busch Series, Jimmy Spencer in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and Hershel McGriff in the NASCAR Grand National Division, AutoZone West Series.

The NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series national championship is awarded to the Division champion with the highest point total overall, based on their best 16 finishes of the season. The national champion can receive an additional $50,000 (U.S.) bonus for a total of $75,000 in post-season prize money.
