Much like his father, who used his calm demeanor to win four national championships in a five-year span, Aaron Stanfield apparently doesn’t rattle easily. In the final round, he cut a nearly perfect .001 reaction time and ran a 6.370 on his 6.36 dial to freeze out Travis, who was more than competitive with a .033-second package. Stanfield’s brief time in a Pro Stock car was no doubt beneficial in helping him make the transition to a low-six-second Top Dragster. In addition to his final-round win against Travis, he also ran a perfect 6.360 on his 6.36 dial in round two against Joe Fisher and used a .006 light to help defeat former Super Comp national champion Kevin Brannon in the quarterfinals.
