2018 Triple Crown Series CLASS CHAMPION:
TRIPLE CROWN GAS: David Ellenberger | TRIPLE CROWN DIESEL: Shawn Bell
The Triple Crown Series began in 2017 and has grown into the 2018 season with sixteen hooks offered to trucks in this division with USA-EAST. This class was directed at the huge number of owners who want to compete at USA-EAST pulls but are restricted as to how much money that want to put into their ‘daily driver’.
A USA-EAST special membership is required to collect points in 2019. The eventual class winners will be honored at the banquet and will receive a trophy at the end of the series. Should a class sponsor come forward a monetary point fund will be offered.
TRIPLE CROWN GAS: David Ellenberger from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania was the class champion for the second straight year. His 2013 Chevrolet named “Doomed” with a 6.0 liter GM engine has been the ‘one to beat’ in this series.
TRIPLE CROWN DIESEL: Shawn Bell from Mercer, Pennsylvania won the point race for the diesel 4×4 trucks in this series. Shawn competes with a Duramax powered Chevrolet named the “High Mile Hooker”.
