Six-driver battle for Global Mazda MX-5 Cup Championship

When the Battery Tender Global Mazda MX-5 Cup presented by BFGoodrich stages its season-finale event at the Monticello Motor Club next weekend, there will be six drivers with a mathematical shot at taking the title. The weekend, which will be staged as part of the Art in Motion Fall Festival, will feature a doubleheader Saturday to settle the championship.

Winning the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup championship isn’t just about gaining a big resume boost and a fresh new trophy, as there is an incredible $200,000 in scholarship support from Mazda that will go to the 2018 champion.

Nikko Reger (195 points) currently holds a one-point advantage over 2018 Mazda Shootout winner Selin Rollan (194pts ), with Bryan Ortiz (176 pts) third ahead of Robert Stout (172 pts), 2016 Champion Nathanial Sparks (169 pts) in fifth, and Portland race winner Luke Oxner (157pts) in sixth as any of these names could end up on that big check at the end of the weekend.
