Nick DeMoss - 2017 ECS Open Class Champion - (Nick DeMoss Racing) - Sept. 23, 2017


​     The Points Championship was already decided before the green flag fell on Championship Night at English Creek Speedway (ECS) as Nick DeMoss had amassed enough points to clinch his 8th Open Class title. Nick had already won 8 out of 9 A-Features and 13 out of 18 heat races, with his lone loss a 2nd place finish.  There was also the Marion County Fair race that was not factored into the points total that Nick was not only able to win the heat, but also dominate the feature, where he was able lap the 4th place finishing car.  

     Not only had Nick had a great local season going into Championship Night, Nick also had a very strong run at the English Creek Speedway Nationals that had over 50 entries of the best dirt racers from across the entire United States.  After having to go to his backup car just before the B-Main with no practice laps because of a coil going bad on his primary car, Nick was able to drive up to 2nd and make the A-Main.  "The car was very tight in the B-Main, so we tried some adjustments, but just didn't do enough as it was really tough to handle in the A-Main.  I think we definitely had a top 5 or 6 car, but I struggled so much on each corner to get it to turn that we were lucky to finish 9th.  9th against the quality of competition that was here at this event though is nothing to be ashamed about, I just know we could have been a little better, and that is what is frustrating."  

     Having 9 total wins on the season, a 9th place finish in the Nationals, and an 8th Point Title, Nick only had one more goal, to pick up double digit wins in 2017!  The last race of the year drew the Open class Track Champion, Carter Chevalier, from Wisconsin who made the trip to get in one final race on the year.  The heat lineups would see Chevalier and Nick in separate heat races, with both drivers winning both of their heats, setting up an exciting A-Feature.  Nick would jump out to an early lead and pull out to a five car advantage before the 5 car of DeMoss would start searching the track for different lines. "I heard from my pit crew that (Matt) Johnson ran me down and was all over me in the second heat race and was running the bottom in turns three and four, so after a few laps I thought I should at least give it a try." Chevalier was able to catch and make a pass in turns three and four as Nick was searching the track.  Two laps later, Nick would throw a slide job in turns three and four to regain the lead and never look back, going on to win by 15 car lengths.  "I thought the bottom felt pretty good when I was running there, but Carter drove by me.  I probably should have just kept the line I started with, but when you are in the lead, you don't really know.  Once he went by, I went back to my line and was able to run him back down and pass him back.  I knew I made some good decisions in lap traffic and it would be tough for him to catch me."  

     Nick was able to win 9 out of 10 races in the Points Championship, along with his 3rd consecutive win out of three races at the historic Knoxville Raceway during the Marion County Fair. "We had an amazing season.  My crew did a fantastic job all year giving me a great car and I literally have the best sponsors in Outlaw Dirt Karts.  Their products are second to none, and a major reason why we have had this success." 

     Nick DeMoss Racing would like to thank RFC Karts, SUP Motors, Hoosier Tire, DWT Wheels, Moto Tassinari, Ti-LUBE, Hot Rods Cranks, Vertex Piston, Engine Ice, Bell Helmets, Ultrashield Race Products, Fenders Cycle, MPI Steering Wheel, James Gang Pizza, and all other family, friends, and fans for their support.  It would not be possible without every one of them.
