4:14 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 79 degrees, relative humidity 36 percent, barometer 29.42 inches, adjusted altitude 2,404 feet, track temperature 91 degrees.

Beckman is 8 - 6 against Hagan in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round.

Beckman is 14-15 in final rounds, 2-0 this year.

Hagan is 5-9 in final rounds, 0-3 this year.

Beckman is number two in points and could close to within 30 points of the leader Capps with a win here.

Hagan hits the throttle way too early, gets to half track and a fire erupts underneath the car. He continues down track, comes to a stop and the fire was already out. Beckman must have been distracted at the line. He was later than Hagan was early but went right down the groove with another good run to take the win.
