Living up to their class moniker, Pro Outlaw came down to a duel between Speer's aptly-named "Georgia Outlaw" and Rick Blethroade's "Wild Thing," with Speer screaming away, unopposed, to a 6.404 at 123.66 mph to win the race.
"It was an awesome day," Speer said. "I couldn’t be happier with everybody who helped out: Lucas Oil Racing TV, Hedman Husler Hedders and Georgia Outlaw. You know, we bumped up a class so we have no notes to go off of. I know we got a little bit of luck this weekend.
"We need to do a little bit better on the tune up. Dad did an awesome job tuning this weekend though, getting us right, so I can’t thank him enough. Mom, Dad everybody. This is what we need to be doing, making it to the finals and winning races. We'll just take one at a time."
Speer, the top qualifier, beat Phoenix winner Cole Allen, sport kingpin Tommy Thompson, and got a bye run to the final against Blethroade. His quickest run came against Thompson when he blistered the course with a 5.527 at 160.93 mph.
