USAC SUPER LICENSE CHAMPIONSHIP DOWN TO FINAL RACE

The annual "Super License Championship" has become one of USAC's most contested prizes in recent years.

This year is no exception with the champion yet to be crowned after the November 26 "Turkey Night Grand Prix" at Irwindale, Calif.

The prize is a USAC "Super License," good for competition in USAC's various racing series in 2010. Points are awarded only for feature positions in all USAC National events during the calendar year and the driver amassing the largest point total is the winner.

Cole Whitt of Alpine, Calif. holds a 34-point lead over Jerry Coons Jr. of Tucson, Ariz. entering the final event. A total of 60 points are available at Irwindale.

Tracy Hines won last year's "Super License" by just three points over Levi Jones, with Coons only seven points behind. Coons was the 2007 titlist and Josh Wise won the honors in 2005 and 2006. Jay Drake was the 2004 champ, while J.J. Yeley was a runaway winner in 2003 after also claiming the 2001 and 2002 honors. Hines wore the inaugural crown in 2000.

The "Super License" will be presented at the USAC "Night of Champions" Banquet at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis, Ind. January 8.
