Radford, Va. --
Philip Morris now has six Late Model Stock championships at Motor Mile Speedway, as well as two Whelen All-American Series titles.
Philip Morris topped the final points standings that were released Wednesday and claimed his second NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national championship.
The six-time Motor Mile Speedway Late Model Stock champion's 955 points were two more than the total of West Liberty, Iowa, driver Brian Harris.
"This means everything," Morris said in a statement released by nascar.com. "It was just a hard-fought year with a lot of sacrifice.
"We've been trying to win the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series championship since 1998. When we finally won one in 2006, I thought nothing would top that. Until today. And then I realized this was even bigger."
Morris claimed his latest Motor Mile championship on Sept. 6, and last weekend's race wasn't supposed to have any championship implications.
That changed when Motor Mile and NASCAR decided that the track would be allowed to make the season finale a points race.
