9:31 p.m. Young is driving the car that won this event last year. Young is better on the tree and he is out in front with the header flames reaching in the sky. Bartone catches him at half track as Young has to pedal it because the car made a move and that is when Bartone goes around him. Bartone sets Low ET and Top Speed of the event in the final round. Bartone wins his first ever Pepsi Nightfire Nationals! That is all from Firebird Raceway it has been a great weekend and we want to thank the New Crew for having Dragracecentral at this premiere event of the Northwest.
