Lee Pulliam Wins Fourth National Championship

Lee Pulliam has officially clinched his fourth NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national championship, NASCAR confirmed on Thursday.

Pulliam won 19 races in 2017 — with a majority of those wins coming at Myrtle Beach Speedway in South Carolina.  With his fourth championship, Pulliam ties Philip Morris for the second most championships in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series history.  Larry Phillips, who has been a nominee for the NASCAR Hall of Fame, has won five national titles.

It had been apparent that Pulliam won the championship on Saturday night, but a disqualification of Ryan Vargas at Kern County Raceway, which was announced on Tuesday, put the issue in doubt.  Because of Vargas’ disqualification, Trevor Huddleston picked up an additional victory — increasing his win total to 22.  Huddleston finished second in national points to Pulliam.
