The Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series comes to a close on Saturday with the Rempfer Memorial Season Championship Night Presented by Bill Roberts Chevrolet-Buick and KCTV-5 Kansas City.
While three of the four divisions have clear-cut championship leaders, the battle for the Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod race is coming down to the wire. Bobby Williams of Hermitage has used consistency throughout the season with eight top-five finishes and will take a 14-point lead over JC Morton into the final night.
Morton, the 2016 and 2018 track champion, has been on a roll of late to climb into contention. The Springfield driver has three feature wins and two second-place runs over the last five events to cut into Williams’ lead.
In the other divisions, Mason Beck is on the verge of clinching the O’Reilly Auto Parts USRA Stock Cars championship with an 89-points lead over William Garner. The other two track championships are locked up with Ryan Middaugh of Fulton a 195-point leader over Jason Pursley in the Cedar Creek Beef Jerky USRA Modifieds and Aurora’s Justin Wells 140.5 in front of Larry Ferris atop the Hermitage Lumber Late Models.
The championship-night program is named to honor Harold “Rowdy” Rempfer and his wife, Julia, who were killed in an automobile accident five years ago. Rowdy was the mayor of Wheatland and he and Julia both worked at Lucas Oil Speedway for many years.
