ENNIS, Texas (AP) — Steve Torrence powered past father Billy Torrence on Sunday in the Top Final final on their home track in the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals.

Points leader Steve Torrence won for the second time in three years at Texas Motorplex, finishing at 3.716 seconds at 328.78 mph in the final. The two-time defending series champion has four victories this year and 40 overall.

“Going into the final, you’re racing your dad and that car is bad to the bone,” he said. “He’s done a great job driving and I didn’t know what was going to happen. You’re worried about getting there first and it was just an unbelievable weekend for our team. To represent Texas and put both cars in the final round, you can’t have a better weekend than that.”
