Two weeks after winning Super Gas in Pomona, Val Torres Sr. scored again by claiming the Super Comp title in Phoenix. Torres, who now has eight national event wins in his career, turned on the win light in the final after Cal Belden fouled by five-thousandths of a second. Torres was able to coast to the win but was more than ready with a perfect .000 light at the start. Torres was also extremely competitive in the semifinals with a .010 light and an 8.907 in his win over perennial top-10 finisher Trevor Larson, who broke out with an 8.875. Belden had a perfect light of his own in round three and followed with an 8.901 in his quarterfinal win over Thomas Bayer.
