7:20 p.m. Last race of the weekend!

Injected Nitro versus Blown Alcohol in the final.

Davenport gets a major lead at the green and powers ahead going down the track. Things get real interesting after the 660 lights, as the car starts to move around the lane a bunch and he has his hands full keeping it under control. The dragster gets very close to the center line, but he is able to stay in his lane for the hole shot win.

Bates made his best pass of the weekend in both ET and MPH, but just can't make up his starting line RT difference.

Les Davenport's incremental margins: 60ft(0.163), 330 ft(0.199), 660ft(0.179), 1,000ft(0.124). MOV: 0.0611 seconds (approximately 20 feet).

Kin Bates' incremental times: 60ft-1.035 sec., 330ft-2.707, 660ft-4.086/179.54 mph, 1,000ft-5.255.
Les Davenport's incremental times: 60ft-0.949 sec., 330ft-2.585, 660ft-3.984/174.80 mph, 1,000ft-5.208.
