In the final Division 4 Lucas Oil Series Divisional Event, Cummings earned his long awaited NHRA Wally event trophy at Thunder Valley Raceway Park near Noble, Oklahoma.

Cummings drove his Moser Engineering backed B/SA Camaro with K&N products to a final round victory over Luke Siebert. Cummings left little to chance and posted a .009 reaction and dead-on 10,880 for a .009 package. His final round was the best lap of the day. Cummings was also solid throughout eliminations, posting reaction times between .007 and .055 for the six rounds leading up to the final.

“What a relief,” said Cummings. “We’ve had a good year, within both sanctioning bodies and I think we’ve done a good job.”

Cummings nearly had back-to-back wins a week later in the Division 2 Lucas Oil Series closer at Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, Georgia. He advanced to the final round in Super Stock Eliminator at the wheel of his Cavalier, but was off target and took second place.

“I had visions of winning two in a row,” he said. “But it wasn’t meant for me that weekend, it was still a great finish to our season.”
Cummings Motorsports is a family automotive business from Hammond, Louisiana. “Bayou Boyz Racing has ten cars,” said Cummings. “We use K&N air and oil Filters on all our vehicles. With K&N I’m faster and very consistent and the filters never give us a problem.”
