Tyler Cassil won the NHRA U.S. Nationals Super Stock title at Lucas Oil Raceway on Labor Day.
INDY – Tyler Cassil made his first NHRA national event win a major one after winning Super Stock at the U.S. Nationals late Monday evening. Tyler earned the title after taking a double-breakout victory over final round opponent Dave Dupps Jr.
Cassil’s road to the INDY winners circle began with red-light starts by his first six opponents. Outside of his .121 reaction and round one and his .069 reaction in round three, Cassil was solid at the tree even though his opponents continually jumped the gun.
Tyler’s best package of the event came in round five when he threw down a 6-pack. His .005 light combined with a 9.381 showed his potential. In fact, in the last four rounds, Tyler’s FSS/H ’14 Camaro ran within .004 of his dial-in.
In the final round battle between two first time finalists, both drivers missed the tree although Cassil maintained a .023 advantage. At the finish line, Tyler took .019 stripe to go -.004 under his 9.35 dial-in to pick up the double-breakout win after Dupps posted an -.008 under 8.342.
Prior to the final, Dupps used a consistent race car, it never varied more than .02 from its dial, to move through the 128-car field. Outside of his late light in the final, Dupps was solid at the tree posting only one light worst than .030.
