The Lite Series is a fictional stock car series that is sanctioned by NASCAR but operates as its own form of stock car racing. The 2001 season saw Guy Woodring in his rookie season win 6 races and take the championship in dominant form. Much like Jason Hedlesky the previous year, Woodring had the championship pretty much in the bag well before the season even reached halfway. Here are the races and the winners:

This season was marked with tragedy, as newcomer racer and three-time winner on the season Andy Tillman was killed in a crash at Phoenix. Tillman blew a tire entering turn two and slammed the wall. He was freed from the car, but died before he could be transported to a nearby hospital. On a good note, all three rookie of the year contenders for 2001 finished in the top ten in points: Charlie James (9th), Michael Robbins (10th), and Guy Woodring (1st). This is the first and only time this has ever happened. Seth Wilson was in his second season in Lite Series racing after winning rookie of the year in 2000. He won 4 races, and almost broke the record for fastest time for a rookie to transition from rookie to champion, but Woodring beat him to it. The late Jeff Dayson's record doesn't stand as he won the championship in the inaugural year of Lite Series competition in 1975. Guy Woodring's record of six wins in his rookie season still stands today. The closest anyone has come to breaking the record was in 2014 when Steve Myers won his only three starts of the season.
