A year after winning the Division 2 championship and posting a third-place finish nationally in the Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs class, Sandy Wilkins won again. Wilkins, the 2015 Atlanta winner, drove a smart, consistent race, using a string of .02 lights to reach the final round. After an even start, Wilkins surged ahead of opponent Vince Hoda at the finish line and won with a 6.722 on his 6.72 dial while Hoda was slightly off the mark with a 6.892 on his 6.87 dial. So far in 2017, Wilkins has competed at four races and reached the final round at all of them.
