Mark McDonald extended his streak of national event victories to four consecutive years in the Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs class thanks to a final-round win over Allen Firestone. McDonald didn’t let the pressure of a final round affect him with a .002 light and a 6.641 on his 6.61 dial that turned on the win light. Firestone, the current leader in the battle for the national championship, was just two-thousandths behind with a 6.611 on his 6.60 dial. McDonald got a free run in the quarterfinals when Benjamin Board was unable to show and earned his spot in the final by stopping Curt Fredrich in the semifinals.
