Steven DeLonjay

Hank DeLonjay

Hank DeLonjay was one of the most dominant driver’s in the 38-year history of the Bullring, so it’s not surprising he owns one of the most lopsided championships at 8000 Broadway.

Fittingly, Hank’s son, Steven, also owns one of the most lopsided title performances. In fact, the youngest DeLonjay, has the dominant championship performance. When Steven won the 2011 UMP modified title by 161 points over Jared Schlipman, that removed his dad’s 124-point win over Ron Gough in 1992 from the top of the list.

Another interesting part of this top 10 list finds late model driverMark Burgtorf owning three of the top nine spots.
