Having been rained out a week earlier at Rome, the sister track whose results also contribute to the overall standings, the final points race in the Cruisers was delayed a week.
With the cars finally back on the track last weekend, Jimmy Wilson, the points leader entering the race, was able to fend of Edwin Scott to win the points title with a fourth-place race finish.
Wilson finished with 344 points for the season, with Scott 18 behind.
Former leader Chris Neece, who had fallen from first to third in the last month, did not race and was overtaken by Joe Trantham, whose third-place finish was enough to put him 10 points ahead of Neece with a total of 316 to round out the top three.
The title marked Wilson’s second in the division at Dixie.
Trantham, who is friends with Wilson off the track, felt Wilson’s finish at the top of the standings was well-deserved.
“He deserved it. He did a good job all year,” Trantham said. “He held his car together, raced everyone clean and drove to a championship.”
Though the points season has come to an end, racing at Dixie will continue, with the Fall Championship races tonight, in which prize money for winning is increased.
The winners of the Super Bomber, Econo Bomber, Pony Stock and Cruiser races will receive $500 apiece, with those who finish first in the Limited Late Model and Crate Late Model races receiving $1,000.
The Super Late Model division will feature the highest payout of the night, with the winner receiving $2,000.
