Stevens has lane choice and given the fact that Edwards has run all three previous rounds in the right side, you would expect that Stevens would put the Camaro in the left side... and he does. No staging games, and it's Edwards with the big holeshot, then Stevens making a valiant try to catch up. Richie's FinishLine horsepower makes it closer, just 0.038 seconds (11') apart at the end, but notch another win for the Dewco Camaro, his second in a row, his second this year, and his second on a holeshot. That's his eighth career win in sixteen final rounds for the Oklahoma driver, truly one of the nicest guys on the tour. Hats off to The Team That John Kight Built, they did a great job here today.
