5:43 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 74 degrees, relative humidity 28 percent, barometer 28.85 inches, adjusted altitude 2,638 feet, track temperature 77 degrees.

A Team Lucas and Team Schumacher final round. Brown is in his sixth final round appearance and is the defending event champion. The winner of the round will be #4 in the TF points. Brown is 4 - 2 against Langdon in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round.

They leave within 0.001 of each other and Brown then takes the lead. He pulls steadily ahead all the way down the track until near the finish line, where there was a big flash off the engine and a bunch of smoke. No oil, so his times will stand.

Langdon had to pump the throttle before the 330 lights and made a valiant attempt to make up the margin.

Antron Brown's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(0.015), 330 ft(0.242), 660ft(0.322). MOV: 0.3447 seconds (more than 100 feet).

Shawn Langdon's incremental times: 60ft-0.865 sec., 330ft-2.406, 660ft-3.391/264.70 mph.
Antron Brown's incremental times: 60ft-0.849 sec., 330ft-2.163, 660ft-3.068/278.29 mph.
