Cole Cameron of Hattiesburg, MS leads Steve Russell of Pontotoc, MS by two points in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model Division National point standings. Sid Scarbrough of Florence, MS is third in the points chase, just five points out of first place. Braden Mitchell of Russellville, AL is fourth, five points behind Scarbrough, and Jason Jarrell of Hattiesburg Speedway rounds out the top five.
Cameron, Russell, and Scarbrough each have two more weeks to earn full points, while Mitchell and Jarrell have three more weeks to earn full points before reaching the 14-week week mark of their respective seasons.
Drivers racing in Durrence Layne Weekly Racing Series events compete for both a Track point fund and a National point fund. Drivers compete against drivers racing at Durrence Layne Racing sanctioned tracks across the country using a National points system over a 27-week season that concludes on September 29.
A driver’s best 14 weekly point totals count as their season total. Once a driver reaches 14 weeks of competition, they start trying to net points by replacing the lowest weekly total among their best 14 weekly totals with a higher one. A driver can only count their best point total each week as their total for that week.
The top ten drivers in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model Division National point standings will earn a seat at the Durrence Layne Racing Annual Awards Banquet to receive a $10,000 point fund check and a trophy.
