The Stock Car crown was won by a first-timer as Randy Brands grabbed the lead near the halfway mark. Brands, who came into a Wednesday main through a last-chance race, became the 11th different champion in the division.
David Murray (Modifieds) and Ryan Rose (Stock Cars) were winners of the Race of Champion events in their respective divisions.
The stage was set for the final race of the week, with Modifieds hitting the track in three-wide fashion. Exciting racing throughout the contest found Al Hejna leading the field until the final turn of the final lap. A broken axle stopped Hejna's hopes and opened the door for a familiar face to take center stage.
For the second time, John Logue picked up a win by virtue of a last lap pass. It gave Logue his fifth Super Nationals title, tying Steve Jackson (Stock Cars) for the honor. Logue's last lap pass previously occurred in 1995 en route to his first title.
Entries in the '03 Super Nationals by class
The Stock Cars and Hobby Stocks set new all-time records for car count. The Stock Cars total was 5 higher than the previous record of 154, set at the 2002 IMCA Super Nationals. The Hobby Stock record of 123 cars fell in a big way with 22 more racers on hand this year. The record for this division was also set in 2002.
