Barcomb Claims Championship!!!

Concord, VT – Season 10 at STR SimRacing proved to be an amazing one. Filled with action throughout the season, it came down to the final race of the season. For the first time in Series history, the Winston Modified Tour held it’s most races with 15 races. Straying away from it’s normal 12 race schedule. Ricky LaDuke (Season 8 Champion) and Chad Barcomb (Season 2 and Season 9 Champion) were the two to beat week in and week out. LaDuke would record an impressive 9 poles to go along with his 1 win. Barcomb would record 1 pole and capture 5 victories on the season. In 15 races Barcomb would finish in the Top 5 a record 13 times. The final race at Riverside Park Speedway was a tough one for LaDuke who would find trouble early, make a comeback to lead some laps only to see it slip away in the end. Barcomb would have a much different race where he found himself mid pack through most of the race and make his way to the front towards the end of the race and seal his 3rd career Championship on the Winston Modified Tour with a victory. It was a career season for Barcomb compiling his most wins in a season (5), Top 5’s (13), Top 10’s (15). Ricky LaDuke would finish 2nd in the points 17 points shy of the Championship. Dave Melson was 3rd (-18 points), Jim Windrow 4th (-25 points) and rounding out the Top 5 in points was Fred Hill (-52 points).The season had 7 different race winners with only 4 drivers with multiple wins, Barcomb (5), Windrow (3), Savary (2), T.Taylor (2). From everyone here at STR SimRacing and the Winston Modified Tour, we would like to say thank you to all of the drivers for their support and Congratulations to Chad Barcomb and the #50 NOS Energy Drink team on their Championship Season!
