 Qualified:             #5  5.320 266.64                        #6  5.324 274.33
3:59 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 80 degrees, relative humidity 44 percent, barometer 29.41 inches, adjusted altitude 2,617 feet, track temperature 108 degrees.

This had the makings of a very close final round because both cars havee been consistent all weekend. It also had the makinghs of a Cinderella story, Michalek in his first-ever rAce in TAD. He has driven in a lot of bracket races and has run this dragster like a bracket car all weekend.

Drama on the burnoiut, Booher's car not wanting to go into reverse after the burnout. It took lots of helping hands to push the car back so Booher could stage. Then the light went green and Booher's car broke.

What a start for Michalek!
