Bo Butner is going to remember Sunday for a long-time – probably the rest of his life. Butner, who has won many sportsman races, won in Pro Stock for the first-time since joining KB Racing several years ago.

Butner had a 6.550 at 212.26 mph in his Jim Butner’s Auto Chevy Camaro. He defeated No. 1 qualifier Jeg Coughlin Jr. in the final round.

This was Coughlin Jr., who was driving the JEGS.com/Elite Performance Chevy Camaro, to his first final round since the Western Swing in 2015. He went 6.562 at 212.03 mph in the pass against Butner.

“Any win that you stand on that stage – Super Stock, Super Street, or whatever it is (the feeling) never gets old,” Butner said. “It’s a great feeling and you can’t explain it unless you experience it. To make four consecutive win lights is very tough and a lot harder than I expected.”

Butner snapped a winless streak in the final rounds, as he was previously 0-6.

Butner was previously 4-1 against Coughlin in prior events. However, this was the first-time that they faced each other in the final round.

Butner won over Coughlin Jr. by 0.0124 seconds, or approx. 4 feet. He’s the second first-time winner this season (Tanner Gray in the last race) — and the 65th driver to win a Pro Stock Wally.

Greg Anderson, Butner’s KB Racing teammate, leads the Pro Stock points with 457. Butner is second with 426, while his other teammate Jason Line has 403.
