3:35 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 77 degrees, relative humidity 27 percent, barometer 28.86 inches, adjusted altitude 2,804 feet, track temperature 91 degrees.

Gasparrelli and Woznichak have each won 1 time against the other in prior events, both prior faceoffs coming in the first round. Both drivers have recorded national event wins this year.

Neither driver will frame their timeslip for their reaction time, Gasparrelli getting a huge edge at the green despite his tardy launch, but his car slowed before half track and Woznichak roared by for the win.

Ferro is 1 - 0 against O'Bannon in prior events and this is a rematch of the Las Vegas semifinals match that Ferro won enroute to his event victory.

O'Bannon striuck the tires and lifted early in the run, leaving Ferro uncontested enroute to his win. Ferro will have lane choice against Woznichak in the final round, looking to extend his event win streak.
