Todd Oliver becomes 3rd player to win the Cup championship in his rookie season




In each of Todd Oliver's rookie seasons he had a chance to win the championship along with the rookie of the year title. In 2015 Todd finished 3rd in the Truck standings, just 13 points behind. The next year he went to the Xfinity series and made the first championship four in that series. Todd finished 3rd again along with his rookie of the year title. Now in 2017 Todd raced in the Cup series and made the championship four. He had clinched the rookie of the year title, now just had to try to get that title.

Todd had the same picks along with a number of other drivers including his competitor Kelly Wolfe. Todd was able to win the tiebreaker over Kelly and only finished in 19th place. Luckily for him that was all he needed as the other two drivers finished below him.

After coming close two other times in the Xfinity and Truck series, Todd Oliver gets it done by winning the Cup Series Championship. He becomes the third different rookie to win the Cup championship, Jordan Hunt and Greg Miller were the other two. However only Jordan had won the rookie of the year title, so Todd becomes just the 2nd to do so.

Todd also gets a big distinction as becoming the only driver to win the rookie of the year title in all three series. Along with those two titles, Todd also won the Chaser Eraser and the final segment of the money pit.

Todd now becomes the 12th different Cup champion and will try to defend his title next year. Todd will also gets his first invitation to the LROC team too.

The Homestead race win went down between Rodney Webb and Gwen Demian. Rodney was able to win the tiebreaker to get his 2nd win of the season and the 2nd straight at Homestead.

Kelly Wolfe finished in 23rd place and finishes 2nd in the standings. Kelly had a lot of success in the Xfinity and Truck series, not as much in the Cup series until this season. He missed out on the drivers championship but he won the team owner's trophy by becoming the first single car team to win the team championship.

Veteran driver Ray Perrotta finished in 3rd place for his best ever finish in his 13th season. It was a very surprising year for Ray who finishes in the top 5 for just the second time in his career.

We were able to honor Fred Sanchez's memory with help from Steve Barber this year. Steve sent Fred a lot further then he probably thought he could. He didn't get the finish he was hoping for in his final race but it was a big accomplishment and a nice way to celebrate him by making the championship four.

Lou Demian was able to get the final spot in the top 5 after holding on to 5th place. He just missed out on the championship four but he was able to win the most valuable teammate award for the first time in his career.

Dean Higley held on to win the best of the rest award, the highest non-chase Driver, so congrats to him.

So ends another season, congrats to Todd Oliver and Kelly Wolfe on their championships. Thank you to everyone for playing in another great season. Enjoy the holidays, we will be back before you know it. The 60th running of the Daytona 500 will mark the 500th cup race for Lucky Dog Racing, a big accomplishment.
