2015 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco race fuels - Results


Devin Jones (Light) and Robert Showalter (Heavy) were crowned the 2015 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Champions tonight following Round Five, the series finale for the five-week series. Last week, we crowned Warren Greenlee as the first-ever Champion of our new Masters (40+yo) division in their 3-week championship series.
As 2015 Summer Rental League Champions, their championship reigns will go unchallenged until the Fall Rental League, Sept. 2-Sept. 30.

Over $1,200 in championship prizes were awarded to the champions and top-three finishers in the Light and Heavy divisions during a special ceremony following the racing action this evening.

Light Division:
Although he wasn’t able to score a race win in the series finale tonight, Devin Jones collected four wins over the series to win the 2015 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Light Division Championship. Going into tonight’s races, Jones only led by 35 points over Michael Melvin. When Melvin scored the Race One win right off the bat, it closed the gap even tighter, putting the pressure to perform on Jones.

However, when rain started falling abruptly on only lap two of the final race of the evening, Jones was able to check out to a huge lead over the field, leaving Melvin tied up in several rain pile-ups. Jones earned a $100 Sunoco Gas Station Gift Card as well as a 10-rental race package for his Championship, followed by Melvin in second and Phillip Eastmead in third place in the standings.

Light Division: Devin Jones (Champion; 2,005 points), Michael Melvin (2nd Place; -80 points ), Phillip Eastmead (3rd; -490 points)

Heavy Division: 
The Heavy Division Championship battle between Robert Showalter and Rob Ruska came down to the wire tonight. The two were arch enemies of sorts throughout the entire five-week series, each winning their share of races. Showalter scored five race wins over Ruska’s four and Showalter entered the championship round just 25 points over Ruska. Rallying with a Race One win, Ruska definitely contended for the championship up until the end. 

However, Showalter was able to score the Race Two win and grow his points lead further, going on to win the 2015 Summer Rental League Powered by Sunoco Race Fuels Heavy Division Championship over Ruska in second and Hunter Leaman in third. Championship prizes included gas cards and rental race packages in the Heavy Division as well.

Heavy Division: Robert Showalter (Champion; 2,130 points), Rob Ruska (2nd; -115 points), Hunter Leaman (3rd; -315 points)
