Kalitta and alBalooshi have each won 2 times against the other in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round. They leave together with Kalitta having the slight starting line advantage, but then his started to smoke the tires and pedaled it a couple times, but could get it to hook up and the engine let go. alBalooshi was on a nice pass until right in the lights when it started mixing up cylinders, but he was able to hold on for the win. This is alBalooshi's first win this season and the second of his career.
