MATT SCOTT WINS THIRD CONSECUTIVE ROSEVILLE LATE MODEL CHAMPIONSHIP
Stockton 99 championship finale on tap for Saturday
PINE GROVE, CALIFORNIA (September 12, 2012) – Matt Scott concluded a record-setting All American Speedway NASCAR Late Model season on Saturday night, using a tenth place finish to seal the deal on his third consecutive track championship. Scott is the first Late Model driver in track history to earn the achievement, doing so behind the wheel of his family-owned #35 Kamps Propane-sponsored Chevrolet.
During the 10 race season on the one-third mile in Roseville, CA, Scott took home three feature wins along with four second place finishes in a dominating season. With three wins at Stockton 99 Speedway as well, Scott has now accumulated 25 career NASCAR Late Model wins by the age of 20.
"To go from being the youngest champion in the history of the track to being the first to win three championships in a row is huge," Scott said. "I really can't stress enough how my team makes me look better than I really am and I'm having a lot of fun this year!"
A five race stretch of two wins and three second place finishes led up to Saturday's 50 lap finale, where Scott nursed home an ailing car after braking a rear axle. Scott coasted home with a tenth place finish, enough to distance himself from championship rival Chris Scribner to take the trophy.
"My team put together a great car all season and we were fast all day on Saturday," Scott said. "It just shows how good our season was that we had a big enough cushion in the points to have the axle snap and still win the championship."
With the All American Speedway championship in the books, Scott has his eyes on another piece of Northern California racing history. The 2011 MSPA Driver of the Year currently ranks second in the Stockton 99 Speedway NASCAR Late Model standings, trailing points leader Jeff Belletto by 26 points with a pair of 50 lap races on Saturday for the season finale. If Scott could defeat Belletto, he would become the first driver to win dual Late Model championships in the same season.
"We are pretty far out at Stockton but you never know what could happen," Scott said. "I've got to try to win both races. When you go out to Stockton, the competition level is insane. I've learned a lot racing side-by-side with Jeff Belletto."
Scott's season at Stockton 99 Speedway has included 11 top-fives and 13 top-tens in 15 starts. Scott has only one previous Stockton start before this season and was able to get to victory lane in his third career start on April 21st.
The historic quarter-mile asphalt oval is one of the oldest operating NASCAR weekly short tracks in the nation.

More than 60 million Americans use propane gas on a daily basis, and 14 million of these families use propane to fuel their major appliances. Propane appliances can utilize this form of fuel to perform the same duties as their electric counterparts for much less energy.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average Californian homeowner can save more than $300 every year by using propane gas for water heating, home heating, clothes drying, and cooking. These savings will more than pay for propane appliances over their lifetimes.
Powering traditional electric appliances like water heaters and clothes dryers can constitute a substantial portion of your utility bill. They use a lot of energy to generate heat, and while today's electric models are relatively efficient, they can't compare to propane gas. Propane is a clean-burning fuel that produces fewer greenhouse gases, especially compared to the carbon output of many modern power plants. A propane water heater not only uses less overall energy, but can help reduce your home's carbon footprint. A propane clothes dryer offer similar benefits, reaching optimal temperatures quicker than their electric counterparts and using less energy overall. The end result is a lower utility bill and a greener home.
Propane appliances like cooktops and boilers or furnaces can greatly reduce your overall energy consumption. They provide savings every time they are used, helping you chip in a little bit every day to lower your impact on the environment and on your own wallet. Even appliances like refrigerators can be powered by propane gas.

Propane gas is a versatile fuel that offers a clean-burning alternative to electricity, oil, and natural gas. Propane appliances should be inspected and maintained on a regular basis, and all propane storage tanks require respect and care.
Propane gas is flammable. This may seem obvious, but it's important to respect propane and its properties. Whenever you're near a propane storage tank or propane-burning appliance, avoid outside flames and sparks. Don't smoke around these appliances, and if you notice the scent of gas (artificially augmented to smell similar to rotten eggs), turn off all flames and leave the area immediately. Turn off the gas if possible, and contact your propane gas service.
Have your propane-burning appliances inspected regularly. Pilot lights and burners, such as those found in water heaters and furnaces, should be inspected by a professional on at least an annual basis. Burners that are poorly maintained may not burn cleanly, producing carbon monoxide gas. It's a good idea to invest in both a propane gas and carbon monoxide sensor for your home.
Don't run out of gas. Your propane storage tank needs to be refilled on a regular basis by a qualified propane delivery service. For large residential tanks, it is very important that the tank itself never reach empty levels. This can cause pilot lights to go out and residual gas in the supply lines to leak into your home. Keep an eye on your propane tank gauge, and consider subscribing to regular deliveries to avoid running out.
