"It feels great to have won another Track Championship. It is what we set out to do this year and we did it," said Russ Morseman III, the Addison, New York, Street Stock racer after sewing up the 2010 Woodhull Raceway Track Championship, his second consecutive.

"This one feels way better then the first one, commented the K&N sponsored driver. "Maybe it's because I had to work extra hard for this one. We actually went into the last point race tied (with Brett Marlatt). We both won our heats and it was a matter of who finished ahead in the feature. I was a bit nervous, but he hadn't beaten me all year long when he started behind me. So when the green flag dropped, I knew I had to go, and not waste anytime getting to the front."

Morseman shot from eleventh to fourth in only two laps, and then he set the next two cars up, and got around them on lap six.

This year's Street Stock Championship came down to the last race, with Morseman taking the title by a mere three points.

"Then I set my sights on the leader but just ran out of time," said Morseman. "It was an amazing feeling coming across the line knowing that I just won the championship. It's one of things when you're a kid you dream about, doesn't matter what class, or car you're driving, you dream of being in a race that if you win, you win the championship."

"Other than the weekend that one of my best friends, Lance Cpl. Mike Plank was shot and killed overseas, this is my most memorable win. I wanted to win for Mike so bad that weekend, and when I did, it was a very emotional win, and one that I will never forget."

Next year Morseman plans on moving into a 358 Modified, the top division in his area. "I plan to run the Dart Dirt ROC Tour, which runs a nine race series. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time. I have one of the cars complete and ready to take to the track, so I can get some seat time for next year."

Morseman says he also intends on running at some of the local tracks around his Woodhull, New York area. "I am very excited to start the next stage in my racing career and expand my knowledge, of not only driving, but setting the cars up as well. My father raced a modified years ago, and he was very successful, so hopefully I can follow in his footsteps."

"I would like to thank all my sponsors and my family, because none of this would be possible without them," added Morseman. And I hope K&N will continue to support me in the future, as I will never even consider running any other brand of filters, as they are the best, proven race after race, victory after victory."
