Noland crowned sprints champion

WHITE CITY — The last sprint car points race of the season was a wild affair Saturday night, with Chadd Noland winning the race and ultimately the battle for the 2010 sprint car championship.

Vern Wheeler won the sprint car trophy dash going away, but he couldn't overcome Noland and runner-up Garren Linder in the A-main race. Wheeler finished third, ahead of T.J. Winningham.

In the modified class, the 25-lap A-main race provided a test of wills as winner Scott Lenz and runner-up Travis Peery each finished the race with flat right rear tires. Mark Wauge placed third and Matt Duste fourth. Peery, of Fort Jones, Calif., won the modified trophy dash.

In the dwarf car A-main, former dwarf champion Jon DeBenedetti and former modified driver Mike Johnson gave the field a run for their money but couldn't hold up against the likes of Kelly Gutches, who fended off R.J. McGahuey and Ryan Smith in the end.

Brian Johnsen beat out Krista Hadley and Skipper Klimcheck in the 12-car super 4's field, while mini stocks driver Toby Judd prevailed over Dan Borror and Bob Burkett in the 20-lap A-main.
