In Stock 8 action, all Paul Clark had to do was start his Feature event to earn the point title. After motor issues in his heat race Clark ended up starting the Feature event 1 lap down but still managed to hold on to the title.

Kenneth Brown of Mountain City, Tenn. was the Stock 8 Feature winner. With a mere 2 points separating first and second place in the Young Guns division, Dixie Barker got by Logan Eller and held him off for the win and the 2018 Young Guns point Championship.Her second Championship in a row.

In Late Model Sportsman action Randy Ring of Jefferson got out in front in his Feature event and never looked back to win his Feature event.By doing so he to claimed the 2018 point title in this new and exciting division at the track.The Late Model Sportsman division will run every other week at the ¼ mile track in 2018.

In the Stock 4 division, Michael Eller of Creston didn’t even have to show up to claim the 2017 Points title. But that didn’t stop him from not only showing up,but winning his Feature as well,several car lengths over second place finisher Jerry Pearson. Tony Miller of Meat Camp ended up having a bad 2016 season at the track with several wrecks and DNF’s. He turned that around in 2017 in a dramatic fashion winning (11) Feature events at the track and the 2017 Sport Compact point championship too.

Brandon Sutherland of Kingsport, Tenn. won the Sport Compact Feature event. Semi Mod 4 driver Billy Goodman found himself in the same situation as Michael Eller Saturday night. With consistent finishes throughout the season,he was out to a commanding point lead before the race even started. He ended up 3rd in his Feature behind Teddy Richardson and Jeff Eastridge,but it didn’t matter.He had the points title wrapped up a couple of races prior.

In the Extreme Sport Compact division, Scott Kerley made the move from running the Asphalt track in Kingsport in 2016 to making Mountain View Speedway his home in 2017. By doing so he made his 1st year on the dirt a good one as he claimed his 1st points title in the Extreme Sport Compact division.
