History Repeats Itself As Kevin Nuttleman Claims 2005 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division III Championship

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

Sept. 20, 2005

History has repeated itself for Wisconsin Late Model driver Kevin Nuttleman.

Sixteen years after winning the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Great Northern Region championship, he has won a second major NASCAR title. Nuttleman, of Bangor, Wis., won the 2005 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division III championship after recording four wins and 16 top-five finishes at LaCrosse (Wis.) Fairgrounds Speedway. Nuttleman, a farmer by trade, is the first driver to win a title under NASCAR’s former “regional” format and the new Divisional format established this season.

“We thought that we had it won a few weeks ago,” Nuttleman said. “But, it’s not over until it’s over, so it feels good to win it. My cousin, Tim, put the team together over the winter; we hit the race track the first day and everything was awesome.”

When Nuttleman, now age 45, won his first championship, drivers earned points for each event with their best 20 finishes counted towards the title. In the years since, NASCAR employed the Competition Performance Index (CPI), which awarded championships based on an index of various statistical categories, to determine the champions.

The CPI Index was discontinued in 2005 and the series has returned to a points format. Tracks were divided into one of four divisions – Division I, II, III or IV – with drivers earning points for each event. Similar to the format used in 1989, each driver’s best 16 finishes were used to determine their point total towards the divisional title. Nuttleman’s best 16 finishes at LaCrosse earned him 1,068 points and he won the Division III title by a 42-point margin over Jay Sommers of Leroy, Ohio.

One new twist was added to the series in 2005: bonus points were awarded based on the number of cars in a given race. For each event with 15-20 cars in the field, each driver received 10 bonus points; 20 bonus points were awarded for events with 21 or more cars.

Nuttleman’s second NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championship will award the veteran driver $25,000 in post-season prize money and he’ll be honored at the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series awards banquet, scheduled for Nov. 5 in Nashville.
