Price captured four feature wins in 2018 which included the season opener at Shasta Speedway and the July race at All American Speedway.

Second place honors went Dustin DeRosier of Cloverdale. He finished in the top 10...8 out of 9 races this year. He was in the top 5 five times. DeRosier donated 10% of his winnings to the “Driving Out Cancer” fund at each race, and was the largest contributor to this worthy cause.

Price jumped from fifth to third in points in the final NSMS event when he won the Hoosier NSMS October Classic at All American Speedway. He also chalked up two seconds, one third and a fourth during the season.
