</pre> EL CAJON, CA. It isn't quite the end of the season for the late model sportsman stock car drivers at Cajon Speedway. But there will be one title on the line this Saturday night when the sleek and fast stock cars return to action on the 3/8-mile paved oval.
Either Todd McLauchlan, Ron Overman, or Mike Mendenhall will be crowned the track's NASCAR Weekly Racing Series point leader for 2001. That person won't necessarily be the track champion. That title will be determined following the race on September 22.
It sounds a bit confusing. But NASCAR divides the track into regions. The point leader at each track in the region is ranked each week based on four variables. The rankings following the weekend of September 15 - 16 determine the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Regional and National rankings. And since Cajon's sportsman division will not be competing on September 15, the final regional points race is this Saturday. Sharing the track will be all of the local racing divisions. That includes the sportsman, Grand American modifieds, street stocks, pony stocks, and bomber stocks. In addition the Allison Legacy cars have been added to the card.
Race time is 6:45 PM. Qualifying runs start at 5:15 PM. Gates open and practice for the very busy and important evening will start at 4:00 PM. The four variables used to determine the regional and national titles are percentage of possible starts, winning percentage, top five finishing percentage, and car count. Currently Todd McLauchlan, Cajon's sportsman point leader, sits in ninth place in the Pacific Coast regional standings. When the season concludes each point leader at each of the regional tracks will be awarded prize money based on his relative standings. That amount ranges from about $5000 to nearly $42,000. The national champion will pick up a check for over $160,000.
A program similar to the NASCAR Weekly Racing Series exists for the street stocks at Cajon. They are part of the Exide Shortrack Series, which also concludes on September 16. Here Cajon's Rich Green sits third in the region.
