Morris is now the 2013 Top Dragster Champion!

They are just 0.002 difference in RT and Morris looked to be the easy winner, as Adams blower goes bang and the car stops on the track right after the finish line. Morris stays on the pedal just a little too long and breaks out by -0.008.

Hopefully Adams can come back from for the final round.

3:23 p.m.
