Nelson finished with 1,464 points, Jeffrey Massingill (1,398), John Kaanta (1,379), Jake Redetzke (1,183) and Pat Doar (1,000) completing the top five.

This year’s series featured 17 scheduled events and culminated in Northland, first at Halvor Lines Speedway in Proctor on Thursday for the Silver 1000, followed by Grand Rapids Speedway on Friday and Hibbing Raceway on Saturday and Sunday.

As it rained in Grand Rapids, Nelson helped solidify his lead by winning Saturday at Hibbing, with Hibbing’s Kyle Peterlin second and Doar, of New Richmond, Wis., Third.

On Sunday, Hibbing’s Jay Kintner took the checkered flag while Doar was second and Hibbing’s Derek Vesel third. Massingill of Keewatin was fourth but it was not enough to pass Nelson, who was ninth.

With the Wissota Late Model Challenge series officially over, there is still plenty of racing action on display this weekend as Gondik Law Speedway hosts the 33rd Northern National Championships Thursday through Saturday in Superior.

Thursday’s race will feature the Northern Renegades Sprint Car Series as the latest models take over for the weekend.

In the Modified, Brule rookie Brandon Copp is third, Carlton’s Jody Bellefeuille fourth and Grand Rapids’ Johnny Broking sixth.

Proctor’s Kevin Burdick leads the Super Stocks, while Cohasset’s Dalton Carlson is eighth.

Hibbing’s Tyler Kintner is third in Midwest Modifieds
