Banal Wins FUEL'S Biggest Payday And 2017 Series Championship

(Elm City, NC) On a night where a series championship and a $5000 payday was up for grabs, Steve Banal delivered a flawless performance en route to his 2nd career series victory, a healthy $5000 payday and the 2017 FUEL Racing Series Championship!

32 FUEL Late Models would sign in for the biggest purse and longest race in FUEL Racing Series history. In Friday night’s time trials it would be Banal claiming Fast Time honors followed closely by his championship contending counterpart Matt Long.

In Renegade Race Fuels Heat Race #1, pole-sitter Steve Banal would back up his quick run in qualifying with a dominant win over Robbie Emory, Ray Tucker, Christian Joyner and Bryan Mullis who made the 5th and final transfer spot.

In Hoosier Racing Tire Heat Race #2, Matt Long would have to hold off a hard charging Austin Holcombe. Long would prevail over Holcombe, Cy Nelms Sr, Joey Cascell and Eric Groah.

In JRi Shocks Heat Race #3, local standout Dustin Mitchell and Michael Batten would start on the front row. Mitchell would grab the lead and cruise to the heat race win over Batten, Cy Nelms Jr, Justin Williams, and Mark Dysart.

In FK Rod Ends Heat Race #4, Zack Dohm would grab the early lead over Michael Rouse and never look back en route to the heat race win over Rouse, Matthew Bissette, Christian Thomas and Hunter Bailey.

In Saturday’s B-Main Chuck Smith would vault to the lead early while Willie Milliken and Roger Lucas would battle tooth-and-nail for the final transfer spot. With the laps winding down, Milliken found a way around Lucas to finish 2nd while Smith held on for the win. Smith, Milliken, and the two series provisionals (Doug Sanders and Brad Rigdon) completed the 24 car starting field for the main event.

At the drop of the green, Banal would grab the initial lead but he would be challenged early as Dustin Mitchell and Zach Dohm would both jockey with Banal for the top position. Dohm, using a higher line around the track, gave Banal a challenge on lap 12 but would surrender the lead back moments later.

While Banal stayed up front, then co-Points leader Matt Long was on the move. Being forced to start 24th after going to a backup car, Long was advancing through the field to try and make up the distance between he and Banal.

A lap 21 caution would lead to multiple cautions before the race could get to the lap 30 halfway mark. Banal would stay in the lead while good battles took place just behind the leader. Robbie Emory began working his way into the Top 5 and fought with Mitchell for the 2nd position. Meanwhile behind the Top 3, Zach Dohm was mounting a comeback following 2 on-track incidents that negated his valuable track position.

In the closing laps, Matt Long's championship hopes would end on the front straightaway with mechanical failure forcing him to retire from the event. With Long out, Banal need only to stay in position to earn the championship. Bad luck also struck 3rd in points Bryan Mullis as multiple wrecks made the night an early ending effort for the South Carolina racer.

Restart after restart, Banal would show the way and hold off the field for the win and the championship. Robbie Emory would score a well-earned 2nd place finish, while Zach Dohm's comeback effort brought him home 3rd.

Steve Banal becomes the 3rd different driver to win a FUEL Racing Series championship along with Ross Bailes (2014, 2015) and Jonathan Edwards Jr (2016).

This race concludes the 2017 season for the FUEL Racing Series Late Models. Work is already underway in preparing for our 5th season of racing in 2018. Stay tuned to www.fuelracingseries.com for more information to come regarding next season.
