Hines advanced to the final with round-wins over Chip Ellis, Michael Ray, and Steve Johnson.

“We had a good motorcycle all weekend; it was just a matter of making the straight, consistent runs that we needed to,” said Hines of his third Chicago win. “That’s what allows you to go out there and turn on four win lights. I’ve always loved this track, and I always seem to excel at the hot racetracks. You have to be on top of your tune-up these days, and you can’t cut anyone any slack.”
