Mooresville, NC 10/29/13: The white flag is out on the X-1R Pro Cup Series 2013 season, and the same man who led the championship points standings after the first race of the year will lead the standings as the series returns to Southern National Motorsport Park for The Finale 200 this Saturday night. Clay Rogers holds a 121 point lead over defending series champion J.P. Morgan, which means just by taking the green flag Rogers will claim his unprecedented fifth series championship, breaking his current tie with Bobby Gill. Despite the 2013 championship being settled at Southern National several drivers such as Reid Wilson, Gus Dean, and rookie Brady Boswell will look to close out the season on a high not winning their first career race. They’ll have their work cut out for them as veteran Caleb Holman, who won earlier this season at the Eastern North Carolina track, will be back in action as well as 2013 NASCAR National Weekly Series Champion Lee Pulliam.
