5:02 p.m. Medlen came in with a 4-3 record against Pedregon, but this was the first time they have squared off in a final round. Pedregon has taken out two of the three Force team cars today, would like to join brother Tony as the only drivers to take out all three Force team cars single-handedly.

It was a good drag race, but Medlen had the better race car and ran him down before the 330-foot marker. Pedregon's car puffed the tires during the runs and he drove through it, but Medlen's car never faltered. Eric Medlen's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.020), 330 ft(0.005), 660ft(0.016), 1,000ft(0.031). MOV: 0.0425 seconds (approximately 19 feet). That puts Medlen fourth in the points, 22 points ahead of Tony Pedregon.
