The Ames competitor also had the third highest point total in the Dirt Works North Central Region.

Blessington notched 15 feature wins and 34 more top five finishes in 62 outings this year and may have to build an addition to his house to accommodate all his awards from 2000.

He is state champion in the Stock division and also won track titles at the Audubon Speedway and Shelby County Speedway in Harlan. He's now thirteenth on the all-time win list for the division, with 53 career victories.

Larson raced to 11 feature wins and 17 more top five finishes in just 39 starts. He also took top honors in the points race at Greenbelt Speedway in Eldora.

Buena Vista regular Rod Schuermann of Jefferson was state champion in the Modified division.

Final points races of the I.M.C.A. season were Sept. 30 and track officials had a month to correct any scoring errors made during the year before standings became official this week.
