With his win at Myrtle Beach Speedway last weekend, Jeff Agnew leapfrogged both Caleb Holman and Brad Rogers to seize the CARS Pro Cup Series points lead. However, Agnew's hold is tenuous as Rogers sits only nine points back and Holman is only 34 points in arrears coming into the 2011 finale at Rockingham Speedway on November 5.
Rogers finished second in the Carolina 200 back in May. Holman finished seventh with Agnew coming home in 11th.
While the UARA-Stars have a race this weekend at Concord before wrapping up their season in Carolina 200, their championship is shaping up to be highly contested. After last weekend's race at Kingsport Speedway, Brennan Poole, the winner of the UARA portion of the Carolina 200, is the points leader, with Australian George Miedecke in second. Kyle Grissom, David Roberts and Alex Yontz round out the top-five.
"These are the kind of exciting championship battles that we are used to seeing at Rockingham Speedway, " said track president Andy Hillenburg. "I think we are going to see it come down to the last laps for both of these series in the American 200."
Great seats are still available for the American 200 at Rockingham Speedway. Tickets are $15 in advance at $20 at the gate.
After the American 200, the Frank Kimmel Street Stock Nationals (FKSSN) hit the one-mile oval on November 26 for the fourth-annual Polar Bear 150.
NASCAR returns to Rockingham on April 15, 2012 for the Camping World Truck Series Good Sam Club Roadside Assistance 200.
