In the Sportsman division, Welty leads the charge as a Woodhull regular with 567 points over Bridgeport (N.J.) Speedway’s Matt Stangle (553 points) and Woodhull’s Tim Guild (534 points).

Complete American Racer Cup Sportsman standings can be found at the following link: http://racestatcentral.com/AmericanRacerCup/series/Sportsman/pages/

For 2017, the Sportsman point fund is 1) $1,500; 2) $1,000; 3) $750; 4) $600; 5) $500; 6) $450; 7) $400; 8) $350; 9) $300; 10) $250; 11) $200; 12) $150; 13) $100; 14) $100; 15) $100.
