Eren Vanderiviere continued his reign - and then won in the rain.

The Chatham driver finally captured his first Tirecraft Sports Stocks championship race victory on Saturday night, taking the checkered flag just as severe weather hit the speedway, canceling the rest of the program.

“I didn’t know what was going on, I thought someone was driving through the infield,” Vanderiviere said, as visibility on the final two laps was reduced by swirling dust stirred up by a sudden wind gust.

“I took the checkered and put my window net down and got pelted by rain,” he said, as instead of a trip to Victory Lane, he headed for cover to his hauler.

“I finally win, and no celebration,” he laughed.

“I felt bad for my guys, they deserve their picture with the trophy for all the work they do. They’re the reason we won this,” said Vanderiviere, who also locked up his fourth straight points championship.

Eren Vanderiviere (29) and Steve Shaw (17) have been running one-two in the Tirecraft Sport Stocks points race all season. They'll start in the front row in Saturday's season championship race.

If the last three years are any indication, patience will be the key in Saturday night’s Tirecraft Sport Stocks season championship race.

Patience, and running third in the late laps.

Crashes involving the leaders has allowed the third-place driver to win the last three Sport Stocks championship races - Grande Pointe’s Tyler Lozon the beneficiary the last two years and Merlin’s Steve Shaw in 2011.

Lozon went from third place to Victory Lane the last two championship races when Chatham’s Eren Vanderiviere and Shaw were involved in late-race crashes both years.

Last year’s incident came with eight laps to go in turn 2. In 2012, Vanderiviere and Shaw collided just a few hundred feet from the finish line.

In the 2011 championship race, Vanderiviere was battling Essex’s Gerald Martin for the lead when they tangled with eight to go, allowing Shaw to take the lead as he went on to win his sixth career championship race.
