ZACK MITCHELL CAPTURES ULTIMATE SOUTHEAST CHAMPIONSHIP; HARDY TAKES ROOKIE HONORS
CARNESVILLE, GA - Zack Mitchell of Enoree, South Carolina claimed the 2018 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Championship by way of a third place finish in the season finale at Screven Motor Speedway. Mitchell's finish, two spots in front of 2018 Dirtondirt.com Rookie of the Year presented by Cruise with the Champions, Kyle Hardy, forced a tie atop the ULTIMATE standings. Mitchell, having wins at Laurens County Speedway and Lancaster Speedway, won the tie breaker over Hardy who did not have any wins during the 2018 campaign.
The season-long battle saw Mitchell, Hardy and Joey Coulter battle for the points lead leading up to the series finale at Screven, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
While Mitchell began the season with two finishes outside of the top 10, at North Georgia and Virginia Motor Speedway, he caught fire, finishing inside the top 10 in the remaining 12 races of 2018. His two aforementioned wins were part of 7 top 5 finishes, which included three in a row to close out the 2018 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series season.
"Zack had a tremendous run to end the season with 12 top 10s in a row," said FASTRAK Companies International General Manager DJ Irvine, "In the end, we saw exactly how valuable getting to victory lane can be, this was a tight points battle and came down to the tiebreaker. I am honored to have Zack Mitchell and his entire team as our 2018 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series Champion."
Mitchell will be honored as the 2018 ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series champion at the annual Night of Champions banquet in January. Details about the banquet, which is open to anyone who wishes to attend, will be announced in the coming days.
