Steve ran a 3.724 to take down Richie Crampton and his 10th final of the season. Torrence finished second in Top Fuel in 2017 and entered 2018 as a favorite in the nitro category.
"Honestly, I don't have words to describe this," said Torrence. "All the glory goes to God. I'm thankful for all the support from my mom and my dad and all these Capco boys. The whole team that has been behind me all season long. I guess to anyone who said we couldn't do this... here we are."
Torrence clinched the first four in the Countdown to the Championship races, winning in Reading to kick off the postseason. He followed that up with victories in St. Louis, Dallas, and Charlotte to extend his enormous lead in the Top Fuel category. Steve Torrence becomes the 30th champion in Top Fuel history which is now in its 55th season.
