Community sports roundup: Tanner wins Super Late Models title

Evergreen Speedway has a new Super Late Model champion.

Tyler Tanner claimed his first Super Late Model points championship upon the conclusion of Saturday’s Championship Night No. 1. Tanner placed 12th in Saturday’s 100-lap race, the final race in the track’s premier car classification, but his points lead going into the night was enough to hold off the competition. Tanner finished the season with one win, two second-place finishes and one third.

Saturday’s race, which was also the last in the Budweiser Crown Series, was won by Doni Wanat, who used the victory to claim two championships of his own. Wanat finished as both the Budweiser Crown Series champion and the Washington State NASCAR champion.

Brittney Zamora took home the Rookie of the Year award for Super Late Models.

Champions in three other classes were crowned Saturday. Steve Ptacek won the Street Stock championship, Lane Sundholm won the Mini Stock championship and Mike Jensen claimed the Hornet title.

More championships will be determined on Sept. 22 during Championship Night No. 2.
