“Any win that you stand on that stage, Super Stock, Super Street or whatever it is the feeling never gets old. It’s a great feeling and you can’t explain it unless you experience it,” Butner stated. “To make four consecutive win lights is very tough and a lot harder than I expected.”
Butner defeated Allen Johnson and Greg Anderson before facing Coughlin Jr. in the finals. Coughlin Jr. beat Chris McGaha and Tanner Gray to get to the finals where he lost to Jim Butner.
