Brett Suggs Dominates To Win The 2018 Allison Legacy Series Championshipby Hunter Thomas November 15, 2018 0 comments
SALISBURY, N.C. – Brett Suggs dominated the 2018 season to win his first Allison Legacy Series championship.
Suggs won the title by 100 points over Raleigh, North Carolina’s Ethan Elder. Throughout the season, Suggs captured six wins and finished inside the top-five in 11 of the 12 races. This year marked Suggs’s second season competing full-time. He finished fifth in the points in 2017.
“It feels great to be a champion in the Allison Legacy Series,” Suggs said. “This series has developed some of the best drivers in NASCAR today, so it’s really awesome to add my name to the prestigious list of champions.
“Last season was my time to get comfortable with the car and settle into a position that would be both competitive and consistent. We won two races in the 2017 season, including the last race of the year at Orange County (Speedway). Seat time was really the key to this season. Finishing the year with six wins all came from hard work and determination to get faster every race! The consistency came in the form of being on the podium for every race with the exception of Dillon (Motor Speedway) towards the end of the year due to a part failure.
The Mooresville High School student was able to compete in the series this year while also maintaining a 4.2 GPA.
“School has always been a priority to me since elementary school,” Suggs said. “There have been some challenges along the way, but I just kept my focus of school first and racing second. My parents have never pushed me to be a star scholar or race car driver, but they have been very supportive along the way in anything I do. That right there is a big factor to maintaining a 4.2 GPA and staying competitive on track; the support of parents.”
Suggs joins a group of elite young men who won championships in the Allison Legacy Series including John Hunter Nemechek, Trevor Bayne, Chad McCumbee, Regan Smith, Timmy and Tyler Hill and many others.
Finishing behind Suggs and Elder in the championship standings was Matthew Davey. Rookie Jack Galunke and 2017 champion Kyle Campbell completed the top-five.
