3:54 PM A win here by Force would give him his 98th career victory. That would be 12 more than anyone else in the sport. Densham is seeking his first career victory in the 243rd NHRA event for which he has tried to qualify. This is the seventh career final round appearance. They leave the line together and are dead even at the sixty foot mark and Densham was ahead by just .007 at the 330' mark. They both hazed the tires at that point, Force a little worse than Densham. They both stay on the throttle and Densham hangs on for the win. Margin of victory = 0.045 seconds (approximately 19 feet).
