Todd with the starting line advantage, but Schumacher has the difference made up by 150 feet. Todd got real loose on the top end and real close to the centerline, actually crossing the centerline when he was past the finish line. Schumacher had said they would go for the record here. They didn't get record, but got the win with a great pass as the engine expired in the lights. Schumacher will go into Pomona trailing Kalitta by 45 points.
