  531 John Deflorian Jr.                      7 John Montecalvo              
E2   ****WINNER****  0.042  4.195 169.47                     0.033  4.480 161.92

Montecalvo's championship hopes went up in the first 100 feet of this race, his car shaking and getting sideways.

  290 Trevor Eman                           383 Bradley Waddle               
E2                   0.053  4.051 179.76     ****WINNER****  0.032  4.048 179.21
 Prior rounds:
E1    (S HINTZ     ) 0.061  4.081 178.54      (E MORTON    ) 0.022  4.055 179.16
 Qualified:             #2  4.025 179.40                       #10  4.122 160.12
With Montecalvo's loss, Eman is the only driver with a chance to take the championship away from Elijah Morton, and Eman not only has to win the event, he has to set an ET record. He already has the backup.

Nope, Eman made a strong run, but Waddle had a better light and a quicker run to close out the championship in Morton's favor.

Waddle will have lane choice against Deflorian in the semifinals.

Goforth will have lane choice against Aronson in the semifinals.
