For the week: August 11 through August 17, 2014
Winning is the only way a driver can win a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Championship in recent years. Drivers can’t simply nickel-and-dime their way to a title. You have to win early, late and often in between, which Lee Pulliam knows all too well.
Anthony Anders did his part to win a first NWAAS championship Saturday night by sweeping both NASCAR Late Model Stock Car events from the 11th starting spot at Greenville Pickens Speedway (SC), but his closest competitor, two-time NWAAS titlist Lee Pulliam, did everything he could to narrow the point gap between the top two.
Pulliam swept both NWAAS Late Model races Friday night at Caraway Speedway in North Carolina, then doubled up on the double victories Saturday, earning his third and fourth wins of the weekend at South Boston Speedway in Virginia.
While the official points will not be released until Tuesday by NASCAR, Pulliam’s efforts likely narrowed what was just a 19-point deficit to Anders going into the weekend.
For his dominant performance at Caraway and South Boston, Lee Pulliam is this week’s Maxima Racing Oils Dominator. Pulliam will receive a product certificate from Maxima Racing Oils.
