NDRC: Eastern Conference Winners to be Crowned at WinterNats

The NDRC’s Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship will celebrate its first-ever Eastern Conference winners at Willowbank Raceway’s Gulf Western Oil Winternationals this weekend (June 6-9).

Event success will be important not only for the deciding the Eastern Conference winners, but also for the overall sportsman title chase, with an event win or runner-up this weekend also guaranteeing entry* to the Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship invite-only Grand Final in October.

“The Gulf Western Oil Winternationals is going to be absolutely epic at Willowbank Raceway,” NDRC Co-Founder, Andy Lopez, said.

“From Eastern Conference titles to prestigious Winternats event wins to Grand Final invites, the stakes are high for our Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship racers this weekend and that means we are guaranteed no-end of thrilling, edge-of-your-seat competition from all 14 brackets.

“All season long these racers have been delivering on the track and we’re all looking forward to seeing what they bring to a bursting racing program this Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday alongside a first-class group one program.”

All Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship racers who qualify for the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals will be awarded any owing bonus points for each Eastern Conference event win and runner-up they have had this season to date (capped at a maximum of five events’ worth of bonus points/50 bonus points), including those racers who have reached the 300 points cap prior to the event, to find their starting points tally for the Conference final prior to the beginning of racing.

The Eastern Conference champions for the 14 Aeroflow National Sportsman Championship categories will be those who have the most points within that Conference at the conclusion of the event this weekend.

These champions, the runners-up, and a to be determined number of invitees** of the top racers for each category will be invited to the Grand Final, based on the cumulative points of each racer’s best four events across the season across both conferences.

Also joining these invitees at the Grand Final will be the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals event winners and runners-up, assuming those racers have competed in at least three NDRC events across at least two different tracks throughout the season.

In Performance Bike, Joe Khoury and Edge Mallis sit atop the points standings ahead of the Eastern Conference finale on the points cap, with Ken Collin (277.5), Western Conference Competition Bike winner Chris Allen (250) and Jon Mengel (250) nipping at their heels.
