Greg Hick of Las Vegas, Nev., won the inaugural K&N 890 Series championship, edging Matt Fischle for the title. Hicks won three of the seven points events, including the season-ending final. All races were held at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, Calif.
The final points-earning event of the year saw Hicks use a .007 light to defeat points contender Zach Meziere in a double-breakout semifinal, while Dave Meziere defeated Ryan Tietz. Hicks solidified his championship title with a .002 reaction time in the final to beat Meziere’s ’05 Cavalier, 8.914 to a losing 8.905.
Sunday’s none-points race was won by Ryan Tietz, as he was .007 off the index for the win. Series runner-up Matt Fischle finished second with an 8.930. The top five in the K&N 890 Series included: Hicks, 307 points; Fischle, 244; Zach Meziere, 238; Glenn Kern, 182; and James Warden, 175.
