It was the third series title for Rogers, who also claimed all of the $20,000 WIX Challenge Award bonus available during the Championship Series. A $5,000 bonus was available to the driver who won the race from the pole. If no one claimed the bonus, it rolled over to the next race. No one accomplished the feat through the first two races, making the bonus worth $15,000 at Rockingham [N.C.] Speedway. The Troutman, N.C., resident earned the pole and won the race at Rockingham, then repeated his performance in the season finale at South Boston.
