CONCORD, NC - The nearly 3 month gap between races 2 and 3 on the Dunlop/Xeramic National Road Race Series presented by Russell Karting, has nearly evaporated, as Sprint and Laydown competitors gear up for the Summit Point Nationals, slated for June 3 and 4 at Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia. 

Following a most successful March event at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Georgia, racers are set to renew their respective points battles, in quest of the 2017 national title.

Several tight points battles will continue next weekend, one of the closest being in the CKI Yamaha Sportsman Medium Class, where Michigan native Amanda Holewski holds a narrow 5 point edge over Georgia hotshoe Matt Michel. Still within striking distance are Bill Holder, David Lee, and Lyle Trudell, who make up the top 5.

The gap is also tight in the WT Racing IAME Sprint class, where Donald Nelson has a 15 point hold on Gary Sircy after two events, with Lee Curtis, Walter Troup, and AJ Ellis currently in the top 5.

In 4 Cycle competition, Rob Garland has just a 10 point edge over his Dad Robert, with the friendly family fued expected to carry over to Summit. Wesley Thomason, James Cartledge, and Steve Johnson are the next 3 in line, vying for the title in the Hoosier Racing Tire sponosred class.

Jason Lorang comes into the event holding down the lead in two national points classes, a 30 point edge over Michael Tracy in the KALL Racing/Millers Dynotime Racing Formula 100 class, while also leading Emmitt Rodriguez handily in the West Texas Outlaws TaG Heavy class.

Steven Rougeou heads into Summit as the leader over Stephen Flatt in the Fisher Racing Engines Stock Honda class, while Brian Wilhelm leads The Agile Group Unlimited class, with a slim 5 point lead over George Sunderland, as well as leading Kyle Stevens by just 4 tallies in the Formula 125 class.
