NASCAR Whelen All-American Series News
State Title Has Humphrey In The Hunt For NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Crown
Aug 16, 2007 - updated Aug 16th, 2007 9:41pm
Web posted by Jason Christley

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

(Aug. 16, 2007)

Al Humphrey’s decision was made in the offseason.

He took a look at the new format introduced in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, which rewarded state champions in addition to track and national honors, and figured that he’d give it a shot at the Nebraska championship. Considering his home track of I-80 Speedway in Omaha runs separate Late Model divisions on Saturday and Sunday, Humphrey figured he’d have as good a shot as anybody.

“I was fortunate to be able to work with a friend of mine that has a car that’s legal for Saturday nights, and I run my own car Sunday nights,” Humphrey said. “By combining the two nights, we figured we could compete for the state title.

“Being as good as we are nationally, we didn’t plan on that. But the season’s not over.”

Humphrey is tied for the points lead for I-80’s Sunday Super Late Model division with former national champion Joe Kosiski. He also leads Jason Hobscheidt, Kosiski and Kenny Edwards – the younger brother of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup star Carl Edwards – in the state points. And he moved up to third overall in the nation with 754 points.

Woody Pitkat continued his hold on the top spot, improving his total to 840 with a fifth at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway last Thursday and his third straight win at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway Saturday night. Of Pitkat’s top 18 finishes, his worst are a pair of fifth-place performances.

Keith Rocco, the points leader at Thompson, maintained his second-place standing with 770. Guy Jubinville and Jean Francois Bouvrette, both of Autodrome St. Eustache, are fourth and sixth with 742 and 738 points respectively. Kerry Malone, who like Pitkat and Rocco runs at Thompson and Stafford, is fifth with 740.

Kosiski, David Roberts of Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina, Steve Carlson of LaCrosse (Wisc.) Fairgrounds and defending champion Philip Morris of Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia round out the top 10. Of the top 10, Roberts and Carlson are the only ones who have not reached 18 starts yet and therefore can make up the most ground. Roberts has 17 starts and Carlson 15 starts.

For the 53-year-old Humphrey, a corn and soybean farmer from Giltner, Neb., this isn’t his first points chase. Humphrey said he has won numerous smaller touring series and various track championships in his 35 years of racing. But it was the lure of a NASCAR state title that has him showing up two days a week at I-80. The two nights run completely different Late Model rules, necessitating two cars. Saturday’s division is a Crate Late Model, and Sunday’s is a Super Late Model. Humphrey brings his in on a flat bed he had modified to fit the 1968 Ford truck he shows up with every week.

“It works good,” Humphrey said of the truck he bought in 1976. “By being able to run two cars, we’ve combined two teams and we have the resources. I spend a little bit of time working on the other car. My car is my responsibility. If I need something, those other guys can pitch in and help, but so far we’ve had a pretty good season.”

Originally, Humphrey wasn’t even thinking track title.

“Because Joe Kosiski is so tough, so consistent, he’s going to be hard to unseat,” said Humphrey, who has a combined five wins over the two nights. “But we’ve got the pressure on. ... That surprises me.”

He isn’t about to back down, though.

“We’ve been in these things before,” Humphrey 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.

Competitors will count their 18 highest point finishes through Sept. 30. The national champion will earn a reserved spot in the 2007 NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway in October.
