After winning his first two national event titles in Las Vegas in 2015 and 2013, Jason DeForrest added the Topeka Super Stock title to his record. In a double-breakout final round, DeForrest got the best of Pete Peery with a (-.016) 9.164 to a (-.029) 9.461. DeForrest, in his GT/EA Cavalier, topped past national event winners Larry Hodge, Gene Bichlmeier, and Justin Jenkins before taking a bye run into the final. Peery, a three-time national event winner and 2015 Topeka champ, got a free pass to the final after Ryan Montford was a no-show in the semi’s. Interestingly, DeForrest was competing in his first event of the season.
