It's time to take a look at the numbers that defined the White Mountain Motorsports Park season! "By the Numbers" is an off-season feature that's been done by our Thunder Road friends for many years, and this year, we've decided to take the deep dive. You'll find out how many drivers had winning in streaks in 2019 (hint: it was a lot), just how dominating Quinny Welch and Shane Sicard were, how wide an age range there was in Victory Lane this year, and much more! Read more below and let us know if you think there are some big numbers we missed!

(All statistics include non-point-counting events unless otherwise noted.)

1 - Both Quinny Welch (Late Models) and Shane Sicard (Flying Tigers) ranked first in their division's point standings for the entire season, going wire-to-wire for their championships. (Welch finished second in the Late Model Spring Green opener, but this was a "show points" events so he ended the night tied for first in points.)

1.7 - Average finish for Jason Woodard (2, 1, 2) on his way to winning the Flying Tiger Triple Crown Series championship.

2 - Number of four-race winning streaks for Shane Sicard this year. He won the first four Flying Tiger features of the season and had another four-race run near season's end.

3 - Number of family duos that won features at WMMP in 2019: brothers Shane Sicard (Flying Tigers) and Adam Sicard (Strictly Stock Minis), father-son Brett and Dustin Jackson (Strictly Stock Minis), and uncle-nephew Matthew and Michael Potter (Flying Tigers).

3 - Number of drivers who had double-digit podium finishes. Shane Sicard had 12, Quinny Welch had 11, and Dustin Jackson had 10.

3 - Ben Belanger won the Flying Tiger Triple Crown series finale in just his third start in the division.

4 - Number of drivers that won at least five races in 2019: Shane Sicard (8), Andy Hill (6), Quinny Welch (5), and Dustin Jackson (5).

5 - Consecutive "King of the Mountains" titles for Quinny Welch. He has eight Late Model championships overall.

5 - Five non-Kids Truck drivers ages 21 and under won at least one feature: Stephen Donahue, Kaleb Rogers, Christian Laflamme, Ryan Ware, and Tyler Thompson.

7 - Ryan Ware had a streak of seven straight podium finishes from May 18 to July 6, the longest such streak of the year.

10 - Number of different times that a driver won at least two races in a row. The drivers were: Quinny Welch (x2), Nick Sweet, Wayne Helliwell Jr., Shane Sicard (x2), Adam Sicard, Dustin Jackson, and Andy Hill (x2). The Kids Trucks were the only division that did not have at least one back-to-back winner.

12 - Combined number of wins for the Sicard family. Shane Sicard had eight Flying Tiger wins and Adam Sicard had four Strictly Stock Mini victories.

14 - Quinny Welch finished in the top-5 in all 14 point-counting Late Model events in 2019.
