A couple of different faces show for the Fuel final. The Valvoline car is in the left lane and Cory's Fram car in the right.

The track seems to be tight and ready for a good pass so I suspect that Beard has loaded up Fuller pretty strong.

If that was true, the load was too heavy. Fuller blasts the tires early in the run as McClenathan was going right down the center with a picturebook pass.

A tip of the cap to the entire Fram Boost team for a well-deserved win.

That's a wrap at a race that took two weeks to run. You have to believe it was worth all the trouble since I believe this is one of the races that will be talked about for a long time.

It was great to come back to Virginia and even greater to find that the superior track we remembered had been waiting for us all along.

Thanks, y'all. We're outta here.
