The final in NTF comes down to the number one and number two qualifiers, as it should. It's full dark now and header flames can now be seen.

Young's fueler jumps off the line first and is in fronts until right at the 330, where Schutz just gets ahead briefly. He pulls back out in front and slowly increases his lead to the finish line. Take a look at the big speed. That's big power!
