4:58 p.m. This is just a low-bucks Quick 4 race for the Top Dragster racers, the top four after two rounds of qualifying, on a Pro ladder, heads-up.

Careccia is normally one of the quickest Top Dragster drivers at an event, but he's been pretty subdued here this weekend. Even so, he had a hbuge holeshot and Smith chased him well past half track before taking the lead.

Chris Smith's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.043), 330 ft(0.126). MOV: 0.2633 seconds (approximately 65 feet).
