3:43 p.m. Thacker has been consistently quick on all four of his runs at this event, Powell was about a tenth slower on three of his four.

On paper, this was a very close matchup and the race started out to be just that, but there was a flash and a puff of smoke from Kosky's car, followed by both chutes coming out.

Perry will have lane choice against Thacker in the final round.
