INDIANAPOLIS – Chris Windom commandeered the inaugural season-long ProSource Passing Master standings, leading practically from start to finish to clinch the award.

Windom claimed the $2,500 prize offered to the driver advancing the most total feature positions throughout the USAC Silver Crown, AMSOIL National Sprint Car and NOS Energy Drink National Midget seasons.

Windom’s total of 226 positions advanced in the three series trounced all others in the final tally, ending up being 101 spots more than his nearest competition.

Perhaps most remarkably for the recently-crowned USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series champion, of the 60 USAC national races he competed in this past season, the Canton, Ill., native moved forward from his starting spot on 42 of those occasions.

Justin Grant came the closest to Windom’s mark, advancing in 23 of his feature starts.

Windom’s biggest personal gain of the season came at the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ USAC Silver Crown Hoosier Hundred, where he stormed from the 24th starting spot to finish fifth.

His move from 22nd to fourth in September’s USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car feature at Gas City (Ind.) I-69 Speedway served as the largest move by one driver in any event with that series all year long.

Minden, Nevada’s Tanner Thorson, who competed full-time in the midgets with a series-leading seven victories and made six starts in the sprints, finished an impressive second in the Passing Master points with 125.

Kyle Cummins won three-straight sprint features in the summer and took third in the Passing Master standings with 108.

Gas City Indiana Sprint Week victor Logan Seavey earned fourth overall at 102, while Robert Ballou – who earned Indiana Sprint Week’s Passing Master award – was fifth overall with 101 passes.
