The last number one qualifier to win this event was Whit bazemore in '03. There has only been one winner from the bottom half of the field at this event. Force qualified number one, Wilkerson in the bottom half of the field in the eleventh spot.

Wilkerson has a 67 point lead over Beckman in the countdown. Force is in fifth but could tie Beckman for second with a win here.

They leave the line together, then Wilkerson gets a small lead at the 60 foot mark. He extends it a little at the 330, then Force starts to gain ground. Force starts moving around about 800 feet out, the rear of the car fish-tailing until she crossed the finish line.

Wilkerson hangs on to take the win and extend his point lead to 87 over second place Jack Beckman.

Scratch that, Wilkerson puts oil out at the end of the run and is docked 15 points to make his lead 72 over Beckman.
