The five-week layoff did not hurt Bo Butner. The Floyds Knobs, Indiana native won his fourth race of the season on Sunday. 

Butner defeated his KB Racing teammate Greg Anderson in the final round at the Virginia NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. In fact, this is Butner’s third straight win.

Besides winning in Virginia, he also won the DENSO Auto Parts NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, the 50th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, and the season-opener at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by Protect The Harvest. 

Butner went 6.599 at 209.01 mph in the winning pass. Anderson went 6.607 at 210.18 mph in the losing effort. 

“It’s been an amazing season and a good call to come back,” Butner stated. “We made a very good run in the final. Greg and I both made mediocre runs up until that point. The track was great. It’s very smooth and the Franklins did a great job with this place and it would be nice if we came back here a couple of times. It was fun running two cars multiple rounds today. It was a good day and I can’t complain.” 

Butner had a 9-8 advantage over Anderson in prior events. However, in prior final rounds, Anderson had a 3-2 advantage. 

Anderson had the advantage off of the Christmas tree. However, Butner was able to make up the difference as the two cars went past the Christmas tree and never trailed from there. 

Butner had the quickest pass of the day during the winning pass. He won by 0.059 seconds, or approx. 22 inches. 

This is Butner’s 11th win of his career.
