Matt Amrine didn't have a great weekend at Columbus so he went in search of why. What he found was bent lower control arm bolts, which would explain his GT's lazy 60-foot times. With that issue remedied, Matt took his BES Racing-powered GT to the front of the pack at Bowling Green. The first 60 feet is the most important part of a pass, especially for the Factory Stock guys. With his improved short times, Matt's e.t.'s took the corresponding plunge to 11.30s in qualifying; good for the fourth spot. Tuning the leave Matt was able to get the car down into the 11.teens for eliminations, allowing him to make it past Carlos Sobrino and Louis Sylvester. In the final against Tommy Godfrey, Matt couldn't quite put together a winning pass, coming up about 8 feet 4 inches short of a victory.
