Windom Captures Second in USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship


Nov 15, 2011

-Runner-Up National Driver Championship Contender Eager to Stake Claim of Second in Season Finale-

Hanford, Calif. (November 15, 2011) – Driver Chris Windom is in a close battle for second in the USAC National Drivers Championship with third and fourth place drivers Levi Jones and Kyle Larson. Only eight points separate the three, and Windom has his eyes on the prize heading into the final event of the 2011 National Drivers Championship. The 20-year-old Canton, Ill. native will drive for the award winning RW Motorsports team in the November 24 season-ending Turkey Night Grand Prix Midget race.

While the second place battle in the National Drivers Championship is now Windom’s number one priority, the young driver has another exciting accomplishment to be very proud of. The final USAC AMSOIL National Sprint car race of the season took place last week at Giant Chevrolet Kings Speedway, and although the circumstances of the event weren’t ideal for Windom, he took home second place in the Sprint Car point standings.

Windom started the evening by qualifying seventh, but his season finale night came to a halt when he flipped during the third heat race. This unfortunate turn of events caused Windom not to make it to the main event. Windom closed out the season runner-up to Jones who he looks to hold off for second in the National Drivers Championship.

“I’m really excited going into Turkey Night next week, but at the same time I’m a bit nervous too. I haven’t been on pavement in a midget car all year, but I’ve got a great team to work with. I’m really looking forward to teaming with Steve Weirich and Shane Hmiel. I really appreciate the opportunity that the RW Motorsports team has given me. It should be a fun night,” said Windom.

The final National Drivers Championship race, appropriately named Turkey Night, takes place at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif. on Thanksgiving Day, November 24.
