Speedway, Indiana (December 23, 2020).........On top of his first career USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget driving championship, his ProSource Passing Master title and becoming just the seventh USAC career Triple Crown champ in series history, Chris Windom added another accolade to his 2020 resume by capturing the Mike Curb Super License for the first time in his career by accumulating the most total points throughout the USAC National season.

 

Windom (Canton, Ill.) finished the campaign with 3,694 combined points throughout the 2020 USAC Silver Crown, AMSOIL National Sprint Car and NOS Energy Drink National Midget seasons, 632 more than his nearest competition, and was the only driver to compete in all 60 USAC National features during the year.

 

Windom also became just the fifth driver in USAC history to finish inside the top-three of the point standings for Silver Crown, Sprint and Midgets in a single year.  He earned final placings of 3rd in Silver Crown, 2nd in Sprints and 1st in Midgets.  The only other drivers to achieve this feat previously were Rich Vogler (1980-81-89), Ken Schrader (1983), Tony Stewart (1995) and J.J. Yeley (2002-03).

 

Justin Grant (Ione, Calif.) finished second in the final Super License standings at 3,062 with Tyler Courtney (Indianapolis, Ind.) 3rd at 2,355; Brady Bacon (Broken Arrow, Okla.) 4th at 2,243; and Kevin Thomas Jr. (Cullman, Ala.) rounding out the top-five with 2,100.

 

This was the 22nd year for the Mike Curb Super License, which earns Windom a $5,000 reward and a USAC Super License worth $900 as the driver who finished with the most combined points with the three series during the season.

 

Previous Super License/USAC National Driver Championship titlists include Dave Darland (1999 & 2015), Tracy Hines (2000-2008-2013-2014), J.J. Yeley (2001-2002-2003), Jay Drake (2004), Josh Wise (2005-2006), Jerry Coons Jr. (2007), Cole Whitt (2009), Bryan Clauson (2010-2011-2012), Brady Bacon (2016), Justin Grant (2017) and Tyler Courtney (2018-2019).
