Congratulations go out to Steve Bertok and his Panic Motorsports team. This is their second CCPS SM championship! [thumbsup]

This year's SM battle went all the way down to the last race. The top three SM points competitors all had a good shot at the championship going into the last race, and it was anybody's guess who would get to wear the crown. After the smoke cleared, Steve Bertok (Panic Motorsports) was crowned the champion, newcomer Ben Hinson (Ben Hinson) is second in points, and Ess White (E-4 Racing) is third.

Close behind in forth was Andrew Anderson (Andrew Anderson Racing) and fifth was Steve Fricker (St Andrews Express Body Shop)

Congratulations to all of the CCPS participants. This was a great CCPS year.

Hey, according to the header, you guys have all conceeded the 2010 championship already [Wink] How about if I accept the 2009 and we race for 2010?

I think Andrew Anderson said it best, thanks to everyone for being great sports. I extended good karma at the beginning of the season (you know who you are) and apparently it came back. Not exactly the way I want to win it, but that's the way it all shook out. First and foremost, thanks to Estus for putting on a great series. Even with a double whammy of weird situations this season, he's still the man. Second, to all the competitors. I have no problems racing the lot of ya door to door, and after the body shop record bill last season, NO DAMAGE this year was great to see. I gotta shout out to Bob Thornton for the RE power. With big things on the horizon next (this?) year, as tight as the competition was, we're going to need it [Wink] Danny at Carbotech for whoa-ing that power down, Ron/Glen at Traqmate for pointing out all the mistakes we make, Steve at St. Andrews for a really awesome look. Ben and Ess kept me honest, Fusner, Fricker and Jose Bonet too. Hats off to Becca, Johnathan and Carlos for the crew work that makes it all possible. To everybody that supports Panic Motorsports by using our parts, you share this too!

Big thanks to everyone, see you all very soon!! [thumbsup]

Congrats Steve, I'm looking forward to racing with you guys next year. And Guys you need to buy Steves parts they support not only his racing but extra parts brought to the races for those of us that may need them. It sure was an exciting finish for the end of the season, and a special thanks to Es and all those who helped to put this wonderful series on. And Steve You need to get a little more aggresive because as you know your crashes support my racing [Big Grin]

Congrats Steve. Thanks for all your support of the class and to George in his first year. Its great to see a group of competitors work together off the track and then race so hard on the track. It reminds me of the "old" days in NASCAR.

That's the way it's always been for me at the track individually and as a class. I feel certain it'll stay that way. Good racing karma can go a long way!
