Brown went 3.974 at 281.83 mph.

Torrence now has six wins this season, including three of the past four races. He also has 14 Wally’s in his career.

“It’s basically been just a dream season,” Torrence said. “At the end of the way, it’s just a testament to my guys. We will continue to do what we’re doing and we will do what we’ve done to get here.”

According to, Brown was 22-3 against Torrence in the prior races. Brown lead the all-time final-round record — before the loss — 5-2 against Torrence.

The Texan was the first pilot off of the starting line first. Torrence never trailed after that.

As the race went on, Brown began to drop cylinders before he reached half track.

Brown was never able to recover, as he watched Torrence go by.
