COEBURN, VA- Michael Kidd, of Tazewell, VA, claimed his first NASCAR Late Model Stock Car championship at Lonesome Pine Raceway by the narrowest of margins. Kidd, who has been driving Late Models for seven seasons, completed the race season with four wins, 16 top fives and 17 top tens.

Kidd went into the last event night with a six-point lead over Chad Harris. Each driver knew what was at stake, and what had to be done for the points championship. Harris found victory lane in both of the twin races, with Kidd finishing second to him each time. Those second place finishes were enough to secure the championship for Kidd by a two-point margin.

"I have to thank my team, they have been behind me for so many years, when we were finishing in the back to now when we are winning. Without them I would not have been able to maintain the car at the level we do," said Kidd in post race interviews.

In addition to claiming the track championship, Kidd now stands eighth in the NASCAR Atlantic Region standings. The regional standings close this Sunday, September 21st.
