William Gould has won a lot of close races in his IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports modified career, but few were as close as the one that made him a national champion.

The Calera, Okla., veteran edged rookie Jesse Sobbing by a single point (1,233-1,232) to win the national IMCA modified crown. ?{{more}}

Gould was a 25-time feature winner this season, taking 24 of those victories in his home South Central Region. IMCA?s first national champion from the Sooner State, he got the maximum possible 40 bonus points for winning the track title at Kennedale Speedway Park and the Texas Lone Star Series.

Sobbing collected 32 wins with 24 coming in the North Central Region. He earned 38 bonus points for track championships at Shelby County Speedway and Crawford County Speedway.

?I?ve raced 18 years and this was the first time for points,? said Gould, who campaigned in a six-year-old homebuilt chassis and ended his campaign with a built engine from Karl Performance under the hood. ?I?m proud to win the IMCA national championship and to be the first driver from Oklahoma to do it.?

Other IMCA Speedway Motors weekly champions were John Leon Ricketts (sprint cars), Brandon Czarapata (stock cars), Devin Smith (hobby stocks), Matthew Looft (Northern sportmods), Gabe Tucker (Southern sportmods) and Ramsey Meyer (sport compacts).
