Arana is the only rider left in that is not in the Countdown to the Championship. Johnson is on a pretty good winning steak. Arana is red, and Johnson will go back to back final rounds and makes his move up the points with that round victory.

    5 Angelle Sampey                          7 Eddie Krawiec                
E3                   0.003  7.039 187.57     ****WINNER****  0.015  7.016 191.21

Both are great on the tree, Sampey was able to get out on Krawiec, but Eddie is able to use his power to catch her right at the finish line. Sampey was ahead all the way down the track but doesn't have the power to hold off Krawiec. Krawiec will have lane choice over Johnson in the final.

Eddie Krawiec's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.006), 330 ft(-0.012), 660ft(-0.012), 1,000ft(-0.006). MOV: 0.0118 seconds (approximately 3 feet).
