7:16 p.m. Brown is mathenatically still in the championship chase and he does his part, with a holeshot win over Musi. William Brown III's MOV: 0.0182 seconds (approximately 5 feet). However, the only way Brown can pass Abruzzi would be to set both ends of the record and he doesn't have the required backup runs, so Abruzzi is the 2012 Top Sportsman champion.
