5:36 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 76 degrees, relative humidity 35 percent, barometer 29.70 inches, adjusted altitude 1,601 feet, track temperature 108 degrees.

This is Medlen's first trip to the Skoal Showdown. It is Worsham's tenth Showdown. In the previous nine he had a grand total of three round wins. This is Worsham's first trip to the final round, ensuring that we will have a first-time winner no matter which lane gets the win light. Medlen has been consistently quick in the first two rounds, Worsham had to win a pedaling contest in the semifinals to get here.

They were almost even off the starting line, but Medlen's car went up in a cloud of tire smoke before reaching the 330-foot marker and Worsham finally got the win he's been looking for. Congratulations to Del, his dad, and the whole Checker, Schucks, Kragen Funny Car Team.
