Stephen Cross Jr has been on top of the points in Mod ET all year long after winning the second race of the season. He has had a strong and consistent year as he chases his first Mod ET Championship at MIR. Keven Yates has been on a hot streak the last couple of events and is looking to try to chase down Cross Jr along with Cross Jrís father, Steve Cross Sr. And donít count out former Mod ET Champions Chad Burch, Bradley Tippet, and AJ Jenkins..

1) DX07 Peyton Bunch 862

 

2) 625X Brandon Mattera 861
3) 367X Jessi Tayman 721
4) 158X Hailey Pumphrey 700

This Championship fight may come down to the final pairing on Sunday. Peyton Bunch has been extremely consistent in 2023 and held a commanding lead until Brandon Mattera turned on the jets and became the hot hand in the ET Series managing to make up a almost 100 point difference to catch Bunch going into the final race weekend. One point separate these two as we have another exciting Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragster Championship bout going into the finale.

Mike Nelson Jr (Top ET) and Austin Keys (J/D) lead all drivers with four Diamond Points going into the final weekend. Since the programís inception in 2005, Top ET drivers have won the ring a total of eleven times, and only one Junior Dragster driver has ever won the Ring for the Queen. That Junior Dragster driver was Nick Chiles in 2007. Austin Keys could be the second Junior Dragster racer to pull off the impressive feat if he can manage to get to six Diamond Points before Nelson Jr or any other driver who still has a shot. Jason Kirby (Mod ET), Louie Estevez (Mod ET), Mike Gardiner (Mod ET), Adriana Sullivan (Mod ET), and Abigail Norment (J/D) have three diamond points each. Ten Top ET drivers, six Mod ET drivers, and three Junior Dragster drivers have two diamond points each. Fourteen drivers in Top ET, eight in Mod ET, and fourteen with the Hubble Motorsports Junior Dragsters have one Diamond Point each.

Good luck to all of our drivers still in the championship hunt and we will see you at the 1320 Fabrication ET Series presented by East Coast Collision Finale!
