WATERBURY, Vt.– Wayne Helliwell Jr. earned his fourth consecutive Ford Blue Oval Cup title after finishing fifth in the Fall Brawl at Riverside Speedway. Helliwell has now won the Ford title in each of its four seasons to date.
The 2013 Ford Championship saw the closest battle ever heading into the final eligible race. Helliwell lead by just one point over Joey Polewarczyk Jr. Polewarczyk was involved in an accident in the second half of the 200 lap event, which effectively ended his title hopes. Helliwell was leading late but faded back to fifth following the final caution flag on lap 196.
Ford Blue Oval Cup competitors earn money for top three finishes on the two tours and winning special events as well as a point fund for the season long standings.
Helliwell used a total of three feature wins in his E-Keys 4 Cars Ford to earn the championship and the $2,000 point fund check which brings his 2013 total earnings from Ford to over $3,000. He was also the 2013 American Canadian Tour Champion.
