Schucker and Russell Crowned 2016 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Champions

Zachary Schucker (Light) and Jame Russell (Heavy) were crowned the 2016 Summer 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-ever Rental League series using our NEW fleet of Praga Rental Karts, their championship reigns will go unchallenged until Fall Rental League, Oct. 12-Nov. 9.

Over $1,000 in championship prizes that included GoPro HERO4 cameras were awarded to the champions and top-three finishers within the two weight divisions during a special ceremony following the racing action this evening.

Light Division:  
In the Light Division championship battle, Zachary Schucker rose to the top of the championship standings even after missing the first round of racing. With the ability to “drop” a round, Schucker seemingly faked out his competition by being a no-show the first round. However, upon his debut in Round Two of the five-week series, he won one race and accumulated a total of five wins throughout the series; two of which came during Round 5 tonight. When Schucker’s two wins tonight all but solidified his championship, the race was on for second and third place which literally came down to the last laps.

Todd Shockman was able to secure second place in the championship by winning the final race of the series, followed by David Levine who came home second in the final race and third overall in the championship.

Earlier this year, Schucker also won the 2016 Spring Light Division Rental League Championship before adding the Summer Rental League Championship tonight. Can he sweep all three GoPro Motorplex Rental Leagues this year? We will find out during Fall Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels, Oct. 12-Nov. 9.

Heavy Division: 
In the Heavy Division, a quick and heavy shower of rain fell on the track during the first round of racing on championship night, adding to the championship battle excitement between division frontrunners, Doug Rink and Jame Russell. The two drivers battled hard throughout the series with Russell scoring four wins and Rink earning three. The championship came down to a mere 75 point difference, with Russell’s win during Round 5 tonight paying off to earn him the championship, while Rink settled for second. Rounding out the podium was Todd Shockman who pulled double-duty throughout the series, running both the Light and Heavy Divisions. Shockman made history by being the first competitor to finish on the podium in both divisions in the final championship.
