CRESCO, Iowa -- Season Championships for four classes -- USRA Stock Cars, USRA B-Mods, USRA Hobby Stocks and Outlaw Hobbies -- is this Sunday, Sept. 17, at the Cresco Speedway in Cresco, Iowa. In addition to the battles for the 2006 track titles, fans will also get a full program of the high-powered USRA Modifieds as they battle for a $1,000 top prize.

In addition to Sunday being the final event of the season at Cresco, many drivers are expected to get in some last-chance points as Sunday is the final day for national points in the USRA Casey’s General Stores Weekly Racing Series.

Defending track champ Tom Schmitt of Independence holds a slim advantage (1297 to 1269) over Brian Gjere of Mabel, Minn., in the race for the USRA Stock Car track championship. Tory Riecks of Waucoma sits third with just a seven-point cushion over Protivin's Lynn Panos. Shawn Peter of Mabel, Minn., rounds out the top five heading into Sunday's finale.

Another close battle exists in the USRA B-Modified division where Brian Kunkle of Oelwein clings to a 21-point bulge over Elgin's Jeremy LaPlant. Third in the USRA B-Mod rankings is Junior Boyer of Calmar, followed by Chris Fretheim of Decorah and Jimmy Broszeit of Postville.

The closest chase for the crown is in the USRA Hobby Stock class. Chris Hovden of Cresco leads Elma's Brandon Hare by a paltry five points going into the 2006 curtain-closer. Mitch Hovden of Decorah is a distant third, with Kyle Buxengard of Spring Grove, Minn., and Andy Stinson of Ridgeway rounding out the top five.

The Outlaw Hobby division is led into Sunday's event by Patty Fosaaen, who holds a 26-point lead over her fellow Waukon competitor Austin Curtin. Third in the standings is Ben Moudry of Protivin, with Josh Ludeking of Decorah sitting in fourth and Decorah's Dillon Anderson in fifth.

For the season finale, this event is open to all drivers in all classes and a USRA license is not required to compete. Modifieds, Stock Cars and B-Mods may use either the American Racer KK704 or Hoosier G60 tire (grooving and siping is allowed).

Gates open 4 p.m., with hot laps at 6:15 and racing at 6:30.
