Throughout the season, Volkswagen teammates Tanner Foust and Scott Speed ('15 & '16 Supercar Champion) had been battling it out for the top spot. With less than 60 points separating the Foust & Speed, one mistake could have changed the course of the championship.

Unfortunately for defending champion, Scott Speed, Tanner Foust was having a perfect weekend. Through the day, Foust was fastest in Qualifying, finished 1st in all three Heats and the Semifinal.

When the light turned green, Foust launched forward with a perfect start. Speed fell back behind Patrik Sandell’s Subaru and Cabot Bigham’s Ford.
