Tom Moriarity of Monroe won his third NASCAR Super Stocks championship at Evergreen Speedway on Saturday after finishing fourth and second, respectively, in two 50-lap races.

Moriarity, who won Super Stocks titles in 1996 and 1999, also nailed down the Great West Region short track series crown.

Moriarity finished behind John Zaretzke, Robb Touchette and Kelly Mann in the first race. Touchette took the checkered flag in the second.

Dave Lund took home the crown in the NASCAR Bombers division, winning Saturday’s race. It was Lund’s second championship, after winning the points chase in 1997.

Scott LaCross, who came into Saturday night three points behind Bobby DeYoung for the Mini Stocks title, took the championship with a third-place finish in the feature. DeYoung, who finished second to Shane Thrasher, lost the title when his car had mechanical problems and finished last in a heat race.

LaCross won his heat race.

The season championships in the Figure Eights and Extreme Contact Figure Eights will be run on Saturday at Evergreen. Sunday will be the Northwest Short Track Championship.

Crockett wins NST title: Roger Crockett of Rio Linda, Calif., took the Northern Sprint Tour championship Saturday by setting the fast qualifying time and then winning the feature at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, Ore.

Three-time champion Shawna Wilskey of Lake Stevens finished second in the points chase, followed by Jason Solwold of Burlington, Jayme Barnes of Everett, Rich Fauver of Everett and Barry Martinez of Lynnwood.

Solwold won the final race of the year, at Riverside Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore.

Northwest Series resumes: The NASCAR Raybestos Brakes Northwest Series will stage the NAPA 150 at Twin Falls, Idaho, on Saturday, a race postponed last week because of the East Coast terrorist attacks.

With three races remaining, Bothell’s Kevin Hamlin leads Joe Benedetti of Auburn by 116 points for the season title. Should Hamlin win the championship, he would be the youngest ever to do so. Hamlin will be 22 years, 3 months old at the series’ conclusion on Sept. 29. John Dillon of Boise, Idaho, is the series’ youngest champion, at 27 years, 7 months when he won the title in 1990.

John Bender of Arlington leads Troy Conrad of Puyallup by one point for Rookie of the Year honors.
