Two years after winning his first national event title in Sonoma, Bart Smith returned to drive his Monte Carlo to a second title in Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs. Smith was also on top of his driving game, including a near-perfect .005-second package in the quarterfinals to top two-time Pomona Comp winner Jeff Gillette. Smith had to face Mike Ferderer in the final and came away with the win by just seven-thousandths thanks to a 6.976 on his 6.96 dial.
