NASCAR Whelen All-American Series News
National Championship Race Heats Up In NASCAR WHELEN All-American Series

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

(August 1, 2007)

As the calendar turns to August, the countdown begins in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national championship race.

Under the championship format, drivers count their 18 highest point finishes through Sept. 30. In addition to the prestige of being NASCAR’s national champion, the winner also earns a number of perks, most notable being a reserved starting spot in the 2007 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway in October.

With less than two months remaining, Connecticut’s Woody Pitkat has continued his Tony Stewart-esque summer hot streak that has him atop the national point standings. Pitkat finished second last Thursday in the Sunoco Modified feature at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway and then picked up the win Friday in the SK Modified feature at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway to increase his leading point total to 782.

“I think that our Stafford program is the best it’s ever been down there,” said Pitkat. “It wasn’t just one or two things that got better. It’s everything.”

Pitkat has also won two of the last three Late Model features at Stafford. While those don’t count toward his championship total because it’s not the track’s featured division, the momentum doesn’t hurt.

“When you go out there and do good and win one night,” Pitkat said, “and then hop in another car, it definitely keeps you going and keeps you motivated.”

Nebraska’s Joe Kosiski vaulted up to second in the point standings with 696 points following a third-place finish this past weekend at I-80 Speedway in Omaha. Like Pitkat, Kosiski has surpassed 18 starts, which means every top finish here on out eliminates a poor performance from earlier in the season.

Pitkat’s teammate Kerry Malone is third with 680 points and Keith Rocco is fourth with 678. Both run at Stafford and Thompson on a weekly basis. And Kosiski’s main competition at I-80, Al Humphrey, is fifth overall with 672 points.

Humphrey actually leads Kosiski by three points in the I-80 Super Late Model standings.

Drew Herring, from Southern National Raceway Park in Kenly, N.C., is sixth with 666 points, followed by Guy Jubinville of Autodrome St. Eustache in Quebec and Jamey Caudill of Southern National, each with 656. Steve Carlson of Lacrosse (Wisc.) Fairgrounds is ninth with 654 and Jean Francois Bouvrette of Autodrome St. Eustache is 10th at 650.

For Pitkat, who drives in three to four races a weekend between his Late Model, weekly Modifieds and his NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour ride, being the national point leader hasn’t altered his approach.

When he finally had a cookout this past Sunday to celebrate his July 7 birthday, the cake read the same as it did last year when he won the NASCAR weekly Division IV championship: “Keep Digging.”

“We just have to keep going out there every week and doing the best we can,” Pitkat said.

Under the simplified point structure for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, the race winner will receive two points for every car in the event up to 25 cars. Second place will receive two fewer points, and so-on through the field. For example, if there are 25 cars, the winner receives 50 points, second gets 48 and third 46. If there are 15 cars, the winner receives 30 points, second gets 28 and third 26.
