Manzo had a single run in round one and a bye in round two, so this was the first time he ran with an opponent in the other lane. Manzo had a rare engine problem in round two, so Gill had lane choice for this round. Manzo got the hole shot and stayed in front, despite getting a bit loose at 660 feet. Margin of victory = 0.049 seconds (approximately 18 feet).
