Beckman is 10 - 5 against Pedregon in prior events.

Beckman could make up a little ground on Capps with a win here and could get within thirty points if he can win the event.

Pedregon gets off the line first, gets about 60 feet out and goes up in smoke. he pedals a couple of times but can't get the slicks to bite. Beckman drifted a little to the right near the end of the run but still made a good run to take the win.
