In addition to Milliken becoming the only repeat winner this season, the 2017 Championship Standings are officially tied as Matt Long and Steve Banal each have 546 points heading into the final 2 events.

In the Renegade Race Fuels Dash, a quick move made by Mullis around the outside earned him the early lead and ultimately the victory over Pennington, Mangum, Sanders and Banal.
