Following a wild 2019 championship season which started in April at a wet Road Atlanta, champions will be crowned and over $9,000 in cash and prizes will be given away this coming weekend – September 14-15 at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
With 6 wins the #77 of Alex Mayer has a slim lead over the #08 of Nicho Vardis, leading to a championship fight between the two Suzuki powered JDR F1000 cars. Vardis still has to fight for the driver’s title, but with his 4 wins has locked up the 2019 Rookie of the Year title.
Behind the top 2 there is also a close point battle for 3rd in the championship between Steve Hamilton and Tim Pierce. With multiple podiums between the two, only 4 points separate the #93 and the #81 going into championship weekend.
Not to be left out, the battle for 6th through 10th is just as close – with less than a race win’s worth of points between the 5 drivers. New Jersey is sure a race not to miss!!
