The first part of the season was broadcast on the Speed Channel via tape-delay. HDNet signed on to broadcast the final seven races live. The U.S. Cellular 200 race at Iowa Speedway was shown live on HDNet due to the fact that it is a combination race with the Camping World West Series and it is part of the West Series' TV schedule. The Toyota All-Star Showdown moved to January and aired live on Speed.

36th Annual Carquest Fall Final[edit]

The "36th Annual Carquest Fall Final" at Stafford Motor Speedway was originally scheduled to run on September 28; however, due to an unfavorable forecast the race was postponed until the weekend of October 11–12.

While Matt Kobyluck had wrapped up the series championship at Dover, there were still several positions within the top ten in points that were up for grabs.

Brian Ickler was the second to last driver to go out in qualifying and he laid down a lap of 19.376 seconds (new series record at the track) and took the pole. Ickler would lead the first 36 laps of the event before handing the lead over to Ted Christopher on a restart. Peyton Sellers would be the only other driver to lead laps during the race, and between the three of them they exchanged the lead 8 times.

A blistering race speed and a 57-lap green flag run put many cars down a lap and made for an exciting race. A couple of late race cautions kept the leaders within reach of each other. Towards the end of the race NASCAR was getting reports of Christopher's car leaking oil and spent several laps under caution looking for a leak but ended up not bringing him to pit road to take a look at the car. On the final restart on lap 143 Ickler was leading with Christopher on the outside as they came to take the green flag. The two got together and Ickler went spinning into the infield with Christopher taking the lead.

Ickler kept the car running and was able to continue but a caution was not thrown and the race continued under green. Christopher and Sellers were running nose to tail for the lead. Coming out of turn 4 on lap 148 Ickler was directly in front of the leaders and Christopher seemed to have to check up a little bit to not get into Ickler. This led to Sellers getting into the rear of Christopher and sending him spinning towards the outside wall. Sellers would take the lead and the white flag as Christopher came to a rest near the wall out of turn 4. The yellow came out and Sellers crossed the line in first place under the yellow/checkered flags and took the win.

Peyton Sellers would proceed to stop under the flag stand to get the checkered flag and do a little celebrating but all victory lane proceedings would be postponed while the tower reviewed the contact between Sellers and Christopher. Fifteen minutes later word came from the tower that Sellers was the winner of the event. This was Sellers' first win of the season after having a win in the season opener at Greenville-Pickens Speedway taken away from him for an illegal shock absorber.

Toyota All-Star Showdown[edit]

Moved to January of the next year from its traditional October date in order to allow the race to keep a "post-season" feel, this race is a 2008 Camping World Series race, per NASCAR rulebook, since it is run with 2008 rules, and not 2009 rules (e.g., 2008 approved equipment only; no 2009 approved equipment was allowed to be run, and no 2009 rules applied).

The East-West showdown format favoured the West in qualifying, as six of the top ten drivers in qualifying were West drivers, with only two East Series regulars making the top ten, along with defending champion Joey Logano (who was not an East Series regular in 2008) and Mexico Series champion Antonio Pérez.

West Series champion Eric Holmes was among the leaders of the first 100 laps, along with East Series driver Brian Ickler (originally from California; moved to the Charlotte area to race in the East Series in 2008), who led 98 laps throughout the night. Holmes dropped back because of a dragging part on the start of the second segment. On Lap 141, Ron Hornaday, Jr. ran into the side of Ickler, and caused an incident that led to a nine-minute red flag as 22 cars were involved, either by the crash or being stuck behind the wreckage.

On Lap 250, Logano raced Peyton Sellers, who has a Nationwide Series ride for 2009, hard, running into Sellers to cause a spin in turn three. Logano crossed the line first but was disqualified by NASCAR for unsportsmanlike conduct. East Series champion Matt Kobyluck, who did not lead a single lap and crashed in practice, going to his 2006 Showdown-winning car, finished second but was declared the winner.

East driver Trevor Bayne was second, and West driver Jason Bowles, who drove a car for this race purchased from East Series team owner Andy Santerre, who supported the team (he did not bring his regular team with him to the Showdown) was third.

There were 13 cautions in the race.
