The young guns with familiar surnames stole the show at Delaware Speedway this season.

Branden Verhoeven — son of long-time successful racer Dion — captured the track’s late model weekly series title on Champions Night Friday at the local half-mile oval.

The Kerwood youngster wrapped up the points crown thanks to two straight feature victories, keeping hard-charging runner-up Brady Smith (second in the first 25-lapper, third in the follow-up) in the rear-view mirror.

Verhoeven made the full-time move to the late model division this summer after topping the super stock class a year ago.

This time, Jake Sheridan — son of veteran speedster Ron — reigned as super stock king, one of the youngest in track history. At 14-years-old, he is only going to get faster.

Sheridan also won a feature to dash the comeback hopes of David McCullough — second to Verhoeven by just two points last year.

All the division leaders enjoyed strong finales.

Rick Verberne, the truck champion, won 13 features and produced a podium finish in nearly every start this season.

Barry Watson had a similar run of dominance in V-8 stocks. He wrapped up his second straight title with another checkered flag performance.
