Greg Stanfield, who last won a Pro Stock race in 2011 and has spent the last few seasons helping to launch the career of his son, Aaron, returned to his original stomping grounds in Super Stock and earned his 13th national event title. Stanfield faced off with the manually shifted Camaro of Brad Zaskowski in the final round and won with a 9.937 on his 9.93 dial. Zaskowski gave up the finish line with a 10.075 on his 10.04 prediction. Stanfield, who also builds the engines for School of Automotive Machinists & Technology NHRA Factory Stock Showdown championship contenders Arthur Kohn and Stephen Bell, overcame a perfect .000 light by round-two opponent Slate Cummings, and he also won a heads-up match against Korey Mawhee, who got an early lead with a .004 light. Stanfield reached the final by stopping former world champion Ricky Decker in the semi’s.
