The Franklin Root Trophy stays in Indiana as Lloyd Kirkham takes the Demolitions Event National Tour (DENT) 2001 National Championship Sunday at the Indianapolis Speedrome. Kirkham outlasted Kansas' Kirk Amos and the 1999 champion Ohio's Scott Zizelman. Defending champ Ron Stepro fell out late in the 20 car feature.

120 cars from 23 states and Canada met at Indy's Eastside speedway to slug it out for a $10,000 top prize. The final duel between Kirkham and Amos consisted of fifteen minutes of hitting and scrambling for track position with only Kirkham running at the end. A special "Mad Dog Award" was given to Minnesota's Andy Hanson with a $1000 check for his hard hits in the feature. Michigan's Jason Goff grabbed $1000 for Best-Appearing car with a special tribute to Dale Earnhardt.
