We usually find Tim Matherly (far lane) rebuilding or replacing something during a race weekend, but Milan was a little friendlier to him from a breakage standpoint. He was able to concentrate on helping his fellow racers get down the track instead. Tim is usually good at the Tree, and his first-round opponent Kevin Scott knows that. Kevin knew he had to get out on Tim, but he redlit instead. With six cars in Real Street, that meant Tim would go to the final. He would meet his fellow MV Performance running mate in Jim Breese. As usual, Jim got the jump, but Tim was able to make up the difference and more to take the win.
