In Bristol, John Labbous Jr. raced in a final round for the third straight week. After a win and a runner-up finish in Super Gas, Labbous made it to the Super Comp final, where he was turned back by David Morris, who left nothing on the table with a .002 light and an 8.905. Earlier in the event, Morris used a perfect 8.900 to stop Trevor Larson, and he also took out former national champ Jacob Elrod en route to the final. While Morris celebrated his first national event victory, Labbous did not leave empty-handed. Following the Bristol event, he remained the points leader in both Super Comp and Super Gas, so the possibility of him joining Scotty Richardson and Jeff Strickland as a double national champ is not out of the question.
