The final in Top Dragster presented by Racing RVs between George Prather and Phil Unruh was shaping up to be a great battle after both drivers left the starting line within a few thousandths of each other, but Unruh’s Corvette slowed at half-track, and Prather, a runner-up in Sonoma in 2013, was able to secure his first national event title. 

Prather’s driving was solid throughout eliminations, especially the first two rounds, where he defeated John Richardson and Paul Gladden. Unruh, looking for his seventh national event title, reached his 12th national event final by beating Bobby Ray McMahan.
