Although he celebrated his milestone 100th national event win in Chicago last July, Dan Fletcher has not had the sort of 2017 season he has come to expect. Fletcher reeled off win No. 102 after driving partner Rick Braun’s C/EA Chevy Cobalt to the Comp title in Pomona. Fletcher made his way to the final round with wins over former champ Alan Ellis, Jeff Lane, and Brian Hyerstay and managed to lose just six-hundredths to Competition Index Control penalties in the process. Final-round opponent Tom Mettler wasn’t as fortunate because his index was whacked by .16-hundredths. After an even start, Fletcher was able to pace Mettler’s Pro Stock Truck to the finish line to win with a (-.538) 8.022 to a (-.511) 7.399.
