Slate Cummings wasn’t the only St. Louis winner to repeat. Tommy Phillips also scored his second win of the month when he drove to the Super Gas title. Phillips also flirted with a perfect run during eliminations when he used a .000 light and a 9.905 to beat Buddy Wood in the third round. In the final against Jerry DeBusk, Phillips drove his CBS ArcSafe Corvette to a 9.916 to 9.931 victory. DeBusk was slightly quicker off the starting line, resulting in a .020-second margin of victory.
