Mark Buttrum, who lives just a few miles from World Wide Technology Raceway in O’Fallon, Mo., won his first national event in just his third attempt when he stopped championship contender and Brainerd champ Vernon Rowland in the Super Gas final. In one of the closest races of the weekend, Buttrum drove his Chevy Lumina to a 9.920 to 9.910 holeshot victory and turned on the win light by .001-second. Buttrum made his way to the final round with wins against Charlie Stewart, Rodney Benson, and Alan Bush.
