Steve Galileo earned his second win in 10 days in Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs following a double-breakout win against Rich Okerman in the final. Galileo won the first event in the Division 7 doubleheader and then finished off his memorable two-week stay in Sonoma with a double-breakout win against Okerman. Galileo turned on the win light with a 6.959 on his 6.96 dial while Okerman broke out by four-thousandths. 

On his way to the final, Galileo, who also beat world champ Mike Ferderer and Don Meziere in eliminations, was extremely consistent with four reaction times between .014 and .019. Okerman raced to his fifth national event final following a tough semifinal win over Monte Green.
