8:22 PM T.J. gets the holeshot and keeps the candles lit all the way down the track. Tony gets out of the groove and heads for the wall. He pedals it, gets it heading back in the right direction but to no avail as the engine starts blazing near the finish line. He leaves a stream of oil from about the 300' mark all the way into the shutdown area. This is Johnson's third final round in a row and his second win in just nine races.
