Nearly three years after his most recent national event win in Las Vegas, Aaron Kinard visited the winner’s circle at a national event for the sixth time in his career. A three-time winner of the JEGS NHRA SPORTSnationals, Kinard faced off against Ed Olpin in the final round. Olpin, who was coming off a double win in Pomona, had won 11 straight rounds of Super Gas competition before a seven-thousandths foul ended his winning streak in the all-Corvette title round. Kinard, who entered the final on a hot streak of his own with reaction times of .000 and .001 in the earlier rounds, was ready in the final with a .014 light and a 9.909 for the win.
