Here we go number one and two in the point battle. They both have been to eight final rounds this year and they both have five victories. Dixon was out of the gate first and had Bernstein covered until 1000 feet and that was when Bernstein drove around him to take the win. This was the sixth time Bernstein and Dixon have raced this year and Bernstein has four wins. Bernstein is the third guy to win in both Funny Car and Top Fuel here in Memphis along with Mike Dunn and Tommy Johnson Jr.. This is Bernstein's 59th win with 29 of them coming in Top Fuel. Bernstein still trails Dixon in the point battle, but he has cut the lead to 27 points.
