Bo Butner owns three of the first four Pro Stock Wallys handed out in 2019. He beat Greg Anderson, Jason Line and Matt Hartford on a triple-holeshot to tighten his grip on the Pro Stock lead at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. His .030 light won't break any records, but it was good enough -- and his 6.667 elapsed time was quick enough -- to get him yet another yellow hat.
Butner also won the last time the NHRA Drag Racing Series raced in Las Vegas. He lost to Tanner Gray in Las Vegas two years ago, the latest in a long string of runner ups while he chased his first-ever win. That feels like a long time ago now that he has 10 Pro Stock wins and a world championship to his name.
Pro Stock now takes a break for three races and will return in Richmond. That means they have some time to think about ways to catch up to the performance advantage K.B. Racing, and Butner, has on the field.
