Super Gas finalists Steve and Koy Collier became the 11th different father-son duo to race in a national event final, joining a list that most recently includes fellow Division 4 racers Greg and Aaron Stanfield, who raced in the Super Stock final at the 2017 Chicago event. Coming off a bye run in the quarterfinals, Koy, 20, unleashed a perfect 9.900 run on Lloyd Parfait to reach the final round for the second time in his young career. Father Steve had already earned a semifinal bye after his quarterfinal win over James Carter, which guaranteed an all-Collier final. With family bragging rights on the line, Koy gained a small lead at the start and once again flirted with perfection with a 9.902 in his Camaro to beat Steve’s 9.890 breakout. In the 24 times that a father-son have raced in a final (including 13 by the Pro Stock duo of Warren and Kurt Johnson), the son has prevailed just 10 times.
