Loftin Wins WSMT Championship.

Asheboro, NC. --

Saturday night was the Whelen Southern Modified Tours final race of the 2008 season. Brian Loftin, driver of the #23 L&R Transmission/QMF Solutions Chevrolet, headed into the race with one goal in mind, to win the championship. With his third place finish at Caraway Speedway, in Asheboro, NC, he was able to do just that.

“This is amazing,” said a very excited Loftin. “I could not have done it without all the hard work of my crew all season long. All of their help in the shop and at the track made my life easier and allowed me to focus on driving.”

Loftin knew going into the race that he could hold back a little bit and still lead #83, Tim Brown, in points.

The day started strong for Loftin when he was fifth in practice. He went out 14th to qualify and spun a 16.108, good enough for 4th. The top ten drivers redrew putting Loftin starting 7th.

He fell into a groove running in 8th for the first 59 laps of the 150 lap race. At that time he decided to put on a show for the fans as he started picking off cars one by one.

When the checkered flag waved Loftin added another top three finish to his record but more importantly, a championship.

“It still has not begun to sink in yet,” said Loftin. “This year has been incredible. With the birth of my son, Carson, then having more wins than anyone else. The championship is an end to a great year.”

The win was even more important to crew member Kenny Minter Jr. who lost his father at Caraway in the 1990’s.

“Caraway Speedway took something very special away from Kenny,” said Melissa Loftin, Team Owner. “We hope that the championship won here helps give him a little something back.”

Loftin ended his superior season with 4 wins and 9 top five finishes in 11 starts. He will be recognized at the NASCAR Banquet on October 17 in Winston-Salem, NC.

Despite being done with the WSMT, Loftin’s season is not over just yet. He will be racing at Hickory Speedway on November 1st in the final ASA Southern Modified Racing Tour race of the season. He will also be competing in the North/South Shootout at Concord Motorsports Park on November 8th.

Brian Loftin Racing is currently sponsored by L&R Transmissions and QMF Solutions.
