Brett Candies, the son of Hall of Fame Funny Car racer Paul Candies, made it to his fifth career final round in Bristol and cashed in for his first victory by beating Mark Lewis in a competitive Stock final round. After an even start, Candies drove his Cobra Jet Mustang to a near-perfect 9.147 on his 9.14 dial to turn on the win light as Lewis trailed with a 10.777 on his 10.73 dial. Earlier this season, Candies went to a pair of final rounds at divisional races and recorded a win two weeks earlier in St. Louis. With his latest win in Bristol, Candies is on pace for a possible Top 10 finish. He’s currently ranked No. 11 but can still claim points at the final two national events this season in Las Vegas and Pomona.
