5:59 p.m. Troxel's car also made trip into the sand pit in the semifinals, but her car barely nudged in, the rear tires barely in the dirt. However, she faced her teammate, who has been absolutely dominant in the last half of the 2005 season. Troxel went red, then lost traction. Schumacher streaked down the track to take sole possession of the consecutive round win title with 20, the consecutive race win title with 5 and the consecutive final round title with 7.

That's it, the 2005 season is history. See you in about three months for the start of the 2006 season.
