Clay Millican has made 146 race day starts coming into today without a win and that is the most by any drag racer in any of the pro classes. This is the seventh time in Brainerd history that the top two qualifiers in Top Fuel have met in the final round. The No.1 qualifier has won four of the previous six meetings. Massey is 4 - 0 against Millican in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round. Millican is out of the gate first, but Massey chases him down by 150 feet and takes the win by 0.0381 seconds (approximately 18 feet). This is Massey's fourth win this season and 14th career National event wins. Massey with the win ties Don Prudhomme on the all-time Top Fuel wins list.
