After a Super Stock win earlier in the season at the 4-Wide Nationals, Bogan won a close double-breakout final round by .001-second. Bogan grabbed a small lead at the start with a .010 to .019 reaction advantage. As they moved down track, Bogan survived the double breakout math when his -.006 under 11.094 was just enough to take down Cotten’s -.007 under 11.173.
