Championship Recap:

Showalter, Schucker, Eastmead, Rink Crowned 2016 Spring Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Champions

Zachary Schucker (Light), Robert Showalter (Heavy), Phillip Eastmead (Masters Heavy) and Doug Rink (Masters Super Heavy) were crowned the 2016 Spring Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Champions tonight following Round Five, the series finale for the five-week series.

As Champions of our first of three Rental League series in 2016, their championship reigns will go unchallenged until Summer Rental League, June 15-July 13.

Over $1,000 in championship prizes were awarded to the champions and top-three finishers within the four divisions during a special ceremony following the racing action this evening.

Light Division:  
In the Light Division championship battle, it was Zachary Schucker who was the competitor to beat throughout the past five weeks. He proved right away he was a force to be reckoned with when he swept the wins in all three races on the first night of League. In the series finale tonight, he was able to tack on another race win to sweeten the Light Division Championship which he had locked up with 200 points over JR Houston in second. Austin Jones rounded out the championship podium with 1,805 (-85) points in third place.

Schucker and all of the 2016 Spring Champions earned a $100 MotorsportReg.com credit to use toward future event entries as well as a gift pack from Sunoco Race Fuels.

Heavy Division: 
In the Heavy Division, it was the familiar faces and Rental League rivals, Zack Strowd and Robert Showalter, who were back at it again. The two drivers have battled nearly neck-and-neck throughout the five-week series. However, it was Showalter who was determined to settle a score with Strowd after Strowd beat him out of the 2015 Fall Rental League Championship by just 50 points. This league, it was a different story with Showalter winning five races over Strowd’s three wins. Icing the cake, Showalter won the final race of the series tonight to wrap up the Heavy Division Championship, edging Strowd by 135 points. Todd Shockman finished the championship in third place with 1,835 (-95) points.

Masters Division Championship:
The Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Masters Division features competitors who are 40+ years old in either a Heavy or Super Heavy Division. This is the first time that the Masters Division has competed in the entire five-week series. Phillip Eastmead won nearly half of the 15 races in the series, earning him the Masters Heavy Division Championship over Todd Shockman in second and Roger Way in third place in the final points standings. In the Masters Super Heavy Division Championship, Doug Rink finished strong by “sweeping” the win in all three races tonight. Rink used his dominating performance in Round Five to secure the championship by just 20 points over second place of Terry Watkins. Shawn Blackwell finished third in the final points standings.
