One track champion had already been crowned prior to Sunday night at Quincy Raceways and the other four were all but formalities waiting to be put in place.
Denny Woodworth clinched the late model title last week and was joined on Sunday by Steven DeLonjay in modifieds, Tony Dunker in sport mods, Abe Huls in stock cars and Austen Becerra in sport compacts.
DeLonjay's modified championship was his third in a row and fifth overall, including two hornet class titles in 2006-07. Dunker has now now two straight sport crowns to bookend his two "B" modified titles in 2003-04.
Huls won his second stock car championship, his first coming in 2009. Becerra's sport compact crown was his first and denied runner-up Kim Abbott of becoming the first female champ in track history.
Abbott has finished second in points the past two seasons.
The feature rundown for Sunday night:
Late models: Mark Burgtorf won Sunday night's feature ahead of Scott Schmitt, Ricky Frankel, Jason Perry, Michael Long and Woodworth. Woodworth ended with a 65-point advantage over Burgtorf, wrapping up his first track crown since 2010.
"Winning on the last night of the season will give us momentum for next year," Burgtorf said. "I'm definitely looking forward to next year."
Modifieds: Rusty Griffaw led flag-to-flag to win for the second time this season. DeLonjay rallied late to finish second ahead of Robbie Reed and Keith Pratt. DeLonjay outdistanced 11th-place Dave Wietholder in the final standings by 99 points.
"Sometimes you need a little luck to win a championship, and we had that this year," Delonjay said. "It's great. I couldn't have asked for anything more."
Along with "luck," DeLonjay also won 12 of 19 features.
Sport mods: Dunker not only cemented the series championship, but his feature victory was his ninth straight and 21st consecutive first- or second-place finish. Brad Holtmeyer's runner-up feature finish was his season's best. Trevor Hagerbaumer, Jim Gillenwater and Pat Dunker rounded out the top five.
Dunker won the title by 47 points over Tanner Klingele. Dunker's 13 feature victories and 25 overall wins led all drivers in all series.
Stock cars: Brandon Savage punctuated a strong season with his fourth feature victory, holding off series champ Huls, Terry Houston, Jake Powers and Jerry Jansen. Huls' 24-point title margin over Houston a recorrd for the 6-year-old series.
"Quincy is one of my favorite tracks," Huls said. "The fans at Quincy are passionate and very opinionated. I'm looking forward to 2014."
Sport compacts: Becerra won his seventh straight main event after turning back Pat Dunker, Kim Abbott and Brandon Lambert.
Becerra, who the title by nine points over Abbott, tied the track's four-cylinder overall victory record with 17, first reached in 2007 by DeLonjay in the old hornet class.
