G-Force Crowns a Champion

After 16 weeks of sliding, bumping, and sweating, the G-Force Hijinx Clothing Vintage Cup Series crowned it’s champion Tuesday night. It was down to a two man battle at Atlanta for the championship between Dallas Myhand and Christopher Morse Jr. Myhand took over the lead halfway through the race with Morse Jr. trapped a lap down adding to the drama of the night. A timely caution put Morse Jr. back on the lead lap and poised for a championship clinching finish.

Morse Jr. would do just that by finishing second in the race. Jake Hounshell, who finished third in points, won the race to sweep the Atlanta races this season. Hounshell would’ve been the next closest in the championship hunt had their been enough cars for Morse Jr. to lose enough points. We weren’t far away from that happening as the largest car count (22) of the season showed up, including 2000 Winston Cup Series champion Bobby Labonte.

Country Roads Motorsports had their worst night to date, finishing a distant 19th. The issues started from the get go, missing the grid, thus being forced to start from pit road. The first third of the race ran green, forcing a round of green flag pit stops. These would not be our friend on the night, having much trouble getting onto pit road with worn tires. Twice we missed the pit road entry, forcing over 3 minutes of black flags that put the Juicebox Podcast Chevy four laps down and without a chance to get back. To cap it off, we were caught up in a late wreck and blew it up.

This finish would put us a distant 5th in the final standings behind Gerald Campbell, Hounshell, Myhand, and Morse Jr. Morse was the most consistent driver all season, leading drivers in average finish position at 4.1, tying John Weitendorf who made four less starts. Morse finished in the top 5 in 14 of 16 races and won two of his own. Morse Jr. and Campbell will be the championship favorites when the series returns in February.

The CRM race team looks forward to next season with something to build on. We would like to thank the Juicebox Podcast, SportShift Media, Flatout Racing Network, G-Force Sim Racing, Hijinx Clothing, and all the affiliates for an awesome season. Be sure to tune in next Tuesday for the end of the year G-Force Grand National Series powered by the Juicebox Podcast.
