David Levine (Light) and Doug Rink (Heavy) were crowned the 2017 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Champions tonight following the series finale race of the five-round series.
As the second of three Rental League series in 2017, their championship reigns will go unchallenged until our 2017 Fall Rental League, Oct. 11-Nov. 8.
Championship prizes and trophies were awarded to the champions and top-three finishers within the two weight divisions during a special ceremony following the racing action this evening.
We would like to thank all our competitors for five rounds of SOLD OUT fields. In addition, a special thank you to series sponsor, Sunoco Race Fuels for fueling the excitement all season long!
In the Light Division championship battle, David Levine entered tonight’s final round with confidence, nearly having the championship all but wrapped up. Levine accumulated five wins throughout the season. However, never finishing outside the top-ten, it was his consistent finishes that solidified his first-ever Rental League Championship title.
The battle for the remaining spots on the podium was much closer with a three-way possibility for who would notch second place entering the final rounds of racing. Earning second place in the championship with four wins was Robert Showalter (-200 points). Rounding out the championship podium in third by just a mere 10 points over fourth position was Austin Jones (-240 points).
In the Heavy Division, Doug Rink, continued his dominating season in dominating fashion, notching another win to his resume on the final night of the championship. Rink racked up an impressive 10 total wins throughout the 15-race championship to easily earn him the Heavy Division Championship title.
Jame Russell scored second position in the championship (-280 points) after scoring his first victory of the series in the final race of the championship tonight. Completing the championship podium in third position was Kyle Kercher (-665 points) after a hard-fought season.
