List of Point Champions from Capitol Speedway

Listed here are the drivers who have won championships at Capitol Speedway.

This is to the best of my knowledge and research. From the years 1949 through 1956 several sanctioning groups raced at Capitol as well as other tracks. These groups were the BCRA Hardtops, the California Stock Car Racing Association, The San Joaquin Valley Division and the Sacramento Valley Division. There may have been other sanctioning bodies that I am not aware of. Each group kept their own set of points for each track they competed at. As a result there were several drivers listed as Capitol Champion.
