The Pro Stocks capped off an incredible night of championship racing with 50 laps of their own, with Mike Brightman, Tom Scully Jr., Mark Jension and Rick Martin all in the hunt to reign victorious over the division. By this point, both Martin and Jenison were going for their second championship of the night.
The field settled into a groove early, knowing time was on their side with the extra distance. Brightman was first in the line of playoff drivers until he and Ryan Vanasse got together on Lap 24, sending both drivers to the rear. This shuffled Jenison to the front of the playoff drivers, putting him on the outside of Colbey Fournier on the front row on the following restart.
Scully was inline behind Fournier, working desperately to move by Jenison on the outside off the restart. Jenison managed to get in line behind Fournier, shutting the door on Scully, and would go on to play defense against Scully for several laps as they ran nose-to-tail.
A final restart with five laps to go set up a similar situation, putting Fourner right in the middle of the championship battle between Jenison and Scully. Fournier had the lead, and Jenison on the outside worked to keep his nose ahead of Scully’s who rode in line behind Fournier.
Coming to the checkered, Fournier broke away, but Scully and Jenison both slid sideways, pushing their American Racer tires to the bitter edge. By .1 seconds at the line, Jenison had the edge, becoming the 2022 Pro Stock champion, taking down his second championship of the night.
At the line, Fournier took down the win, followed by Jenison, Scully, Bobby Pelland III, and Dave Darling to round out the top five. Brightman crossed in sixth with Martin behind in seventh.
