The quality of racing in Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs is second to none, and no one knows that better than Crumlich, who broke through for his first win. Reaction times that began with .00 were the rule in eliminations, particularly the late rounds. Crumlich was .008 in the semifinals against five-time world champ Justin Lamb, and he followed with a .007 in the final to stop former Comp racer Jeff Gillette. Crumlich capped off the win with a 7.031 on his 7.01 dial while Gillette posted a 6.963 on his 6.94 prediction.
