The championship scenario is simple: if Schumacher wins, he is the 2012 champion. If Bernstein wins, Antron Brown is the champion.

On a holeshot, Bernstein wins and Brown is the champion. He led all the way, but Schumacher was just a thousandth back at 330 feet.

Brandon Bernstein's incremental margins: 60ft(0.011), 330 ft(0.001), 660ft(0.010). MOV: 0.0081 seconds (approximately 4 feet).

What a way to bring the 2012 season to a close (well, almost, there are five Sportsman finals yet to run).
