A pair of Division 4’s best met in the final to decide the title in the Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs class. Keith Raftery caught a tremendous break in the semifinals when he was late against Arlie Boggs, but he survived to make the final, then downed Vince Hoda with a 6.479 on his 6.46 dial. It was Raftery’s fifth national event victory but his first outside of the JEGS NHRA Cajun SPORTSnationals in Belle Rose, La.
