For the second time this season, Matt Blodgett wheeled his family’s nostalgic ’72 Vega to a win in Super Gas. Following his victory in Sonoma, Blodgett earned his third-career title by beating Rob Willis in the final round. Blodgett was almost perfect in the final round with a .007 light and a 10.057 on the 10.05 altitude-adjusted index. Willis was competitive with a .021 light but broke out with a 10.041 in his ’92 Firebird. Blodgett also defeated Alan Savage, low qualifier Brian Preszler, and Loreen Rogers to earn a bye into the final. The points lead in Super Gas did not change hands, although Aaron Kinard was able to close the gap on current leader Devin Isenhower by reaching the quarterfinal round.
