     Going into Championship Sunday, all eyes were on three drivers: Jason Kirby, Danny Mattera, and Charlie Yingling. These three drivers were locked in a three-way battle for the Rick’s Jewelers Ring for the Queen. Then a new player rose to the occasion early in the day. Rickey Nelson was able to tie the three drivers with his third diamond point. Danny Mattera gave himself an opportunity to win as he took the lead with a fourth diamond point. Nelson took another huge swing and was able to tie Mattera later in the day. It ended up coming down to a tie breaker to decide who would be lucky enough to win one of the most prestigious contingency awards in all of motorsports! In a way that few would have predicted, Rickey Nelson would be declared your Rick’s Jewelers Ring for the Queen winner!

     Congratulations to Rickey Nelson for winning this year’s Rick’s Jewelers Ring for the Queen! Rick’s Jewelers, located at 22595 Three Notch Rd, California, MD, 20619, has continued to bring back one of the most prominent contingency awards in the US for any racers that decide to race at MDIR.
