Following a win in Houston and a runner-up in Topeka, Vernon Rowland capped off one of the best seasons of his career with another Super Comp victory in Las Vegas. Rowland took on 104-time national event winner Dan Fletcher in the final round and came away with a 9.050 to 9.073 victory. Rowland, who now has three national event titles this year, including his Super Gas win in Brainerd, topped Kevin Wright with a .001 reaction time in the fourth round and then earned a bye into the final by stopping Travis Theobold in the quarterfinal round. Fletcher has now appeared in 155 national event finals since 1994.
