10:11 p.m. This is it, the last final round of the event. Smith ran low ET of the event in the semifinals, but Hossler was not far back.

More strange things happened here, Smith's car unable to stop after the burnout. Hossler had to wait for Smith's car to be removed from the far end of the track before he could stage the car and take his victory lap. Because of the long delay, Hossler staged the car, took the green, and shut the car off. The decision was made to finish this way because Hossler's car was overheating and Smith's car was still not clear on the top end.
