Sixteen years after winning the NHRA Super Gas national championships and Ray Sawyer is still going strong. Sawyer collected career win No. 6 after opponent Dale Koncen fouled in the Super Gas final round. Sawyer missed the Tree with a .043 light but ran an uncontested 9.93 for the victory, which helped elevate him to second place in the national standings. Sawyer was nearly flawless in the semifinals with a .010 light and a 9.900 in his win over Jason Kenny.
