David Billingsley claimed his fifth career win after driving his D/EA Camaro past Doug Engels’ D/ED in the Comp final round. Billingsley, whose most recent win came at the 2013 JEGS SPORTSnationals in Columbus, scored a key quarterfinal win over low qualifier Jim Greenheck to earn a bye run into the final round. Billingsley was docked .11-second in Competition Index Control penalties before the final, but that paled in comparison to Engels, who was penalized in every round and found himself down .25-second before the final. Not surprisingly, Engels fouled in the final, slowing Billingsley to coast to the win.
