RUTLAND, VT – Young stock car driver Jessey Mueller has officially been named the champion of the Northern Modified Challenge Series (NMCS). The 19 year-old from Olmstedville, NY put together an impressive run of victories and podium finishes during the season to become the second champion in series history. The NMCS is a unique tour that pits open-wheel Modified stock cars against each other on both asphalt and dirt surfaces.
Mueller started off the 2014 schedule the same way he did in the series’ inaugural season, with a victory at the legendary Thunder Road International Speedbowl 1/4-mile in Barre, VT on Memorial Day weekend. Mueller did well in twin 30-lap features on the 4/10-mile at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY in July, with a runner-up in the opener and an eighth-place run in the nightcap – his only finish outside the top-three.
