Todd Ewing collected his eighth national event Wally and first since 2017 after he beat Ray Miller Jr. in the Super Comp final. Ewing, who has wins in Super Comp, Super Stock, and Top Dragster, got a free pass in the final after Miller broke an engine in the semifinals and was unable to repair the damage. From the start, Ewing had his hands full with a round-one race against Miller’s son, Ray III, the current points leader in Super Comp. Ewing also survived an impossibly close semifinal battle against four-time national event winner Lauren Freer. Ewing gave up a slight lead at the start but won by an 8.922 to 8.928 count in a race decided by .0004-second at the finish line.
