TAMPA, Fla. (November 14, 2009) -- Tyler Godwin put the finishing touches on the 2009 American Sprint Car Series Rebel Region campaign by racing to victory lane in Saturday night's 25-lap season finale atop the 1/3-mile East Bay Raceway Park clay oval.
While Godwin became the seventh different series feature winner of the year in as many events, Danny Martin, Jr., secured the ASCS Rebel Region championship with a third-place showing aboard the Martin Structures No. 00 Shaw.
Godwin led throughout to post his second career ASCS Rebel win, with Greg Leonard taking advantage of a late miscue by Gene Lasker to snare runner-up honors.

Michael Miller and Jeff Van Dusen rounded out the top five, respectively, with Kurtz, Bob Auld, A.J. Maddox, Frank Carlsson and Mike Schroeder completing the top ten.
