MONROE — On Saturday Tyson Lang put a cherry on top of his 2020 racing season at Evergreen Speedway.
Lang, a senior at Glacier Peak High School, won the Central Welding Supply 125 for Pro Late Models, not only giving him his first victory in Evergreen Speedway’s premier class, but clinching the 2020 Pro Late Models track championship.
Lang, the son of five-time Super Late Models track champion Naima Lang, came into Saturday’s Championship Night No. 2 leading in the points standings, but he had yet to win a race. He finally got his win, edging out second-place Daniel Moore and third-place Dario Retych in capturing the Central Welding Supply 125. Moore and Retych also finished second and third, respectively in the points standings, with Moore also claiming the Washington State Championship and Retych earning the Rookie of the Year Award.
The Pro Late Models were one of five classes that determined their points champions during Championship Night No. 2. The others were:
— Chad Sinner broke a points tie with Bryant Carlson to claim his second straight Legends championship.
— Steve Cox won the Super Stock Figure 8s championship, ending Quenton Borreson’s six-year reign atop the class.
— Thomas Stanford won the Mini Stock championship.
— Brendan Therriault won the Hornet championship.
The track also crowned four champions during Championship Night No. 1 on Oct. 3. They were:
— Randy DuBios won the Super Sprints championship.
— Ted Lindgren was the beneficiary when points leader Mike Marthaller was spun out in the final race, claiming the Street Stocks title.
— Dawson Cox, who is Steve Cox’s son, won the Stinger 8s championship, the first time in track history there were father/son champions in Figure 8 classes in the same year.
— John Carlson won the Outlaw Figure 8s championship.
