 Qualified:            #11  6.703 206.57                        #1  6.680 206.42
Weather conditions: air temperature 88 degrees, relative humidity 50 percent, barometer 29.17 inches, adjusted altitude 3,689 feet, track temperature 120 degrees.

Johnson was not able to get his car to fire and then the team pushes the car and it fires, but the NHRA officals shut him off because the car has to start under its own power. Humphreys is 3 - 2 against Johnson in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round. So Humpreys will get his first Pro Stock National event win in his second final round. He will become the 51st driver to win a Pro Stock Wally. Humpheys' car breaks right off the starting line and he coast to win. Johnson will still leave with the point lead.
