McClenathan is 4 - 1 against Langdon in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round. Langdon with the starting line advantage and the lead until around 200 feet and that was when he started mixing up the cylinders and the engine let go around 660 feet with a big fireball. McClenathan launched hard and was straight down the groove with his quickest pass of the weekend for his first win since the first Las Vegas race last year, and his 31st National event win.
